    me reading that this is a love story about missed opportunitiesme reading the words best friend's boyfriendme for the rest of the book basically this was a Meh read for me it was very long and very slow and there was a lot of drama in a kind of suburban gossip there's nothing else to talk about way that did not at all translate to an interesting book wayi think for stories like these you gotta like the characters or it's going to be a 400 page trip to Boring City USA and unfortunately i took that mundane vacationview spoilerALSO CAN WE TALK ABOUT HOW THE PROTAGONIST ENDS HER MARRIAGE AND THE MAIN REASON SHE DOES SO IS BECAUSE HER HUSBAND IS MOVING TO ANOTHER EUROPEAN COUNTRY ONLY FOR HER TO FLOUNCE OFF AND DECLARE HER LOVE FOR HER SOULMATE WHO ALSO LIVES IN ANOTHER COUNTRY?

    Have I read the same book as everyone else? Girl Laurie is on a bus She looks out the window and notices a guy sitting in a bus shelter absorbed in a hardcover book He lifts his head and sees the girl staring at him Their eyes meet They communicate wordlessly I am on page 7 and I'm already grumbling Not about the insta love although really? Not even about the irritating first person narration which somehow I find irksome mostly in romance novels I would just like to know how is it possible to ” stare straight at each other when one is sitting on the top deck of a double decker bus in London and the other person is sitting in a bus shelter with a roof I assume head down reading Did I mention it happened on 21st December – the shortest day of the year when at 4 pm it’s already dark? Besides the fact that I was incredulous that a young man would read a hardcover book in winter when it’s dark outside while waiting for the bus I would just like to know how it is possible for two people on different levels in pretty close proximity distance wise to achieve the staring contest It’s physically unlikely But hey let’s not let something as stupid as the laws of physics derail our enjoyment of this love story The twenty two year old and her best friend and roommate Sarah spend what seems like the entire year looking for the “bus guy” in bars and so on None of them thought about taking the bus at the same time or waiting in the said bus stop around the same time I guess that would be too logical Right moving on Guess who falls in love with “your bus guy” – your best friend Sarah Poor Laurie she’s lost the love of her life Give me a break She saw the dude for one minute Besides once she got to know Jack there wasn’t anything special to admire about him He was as interesting as a wet dishrag Not that Laurie was miss excitement or had much of a personality either Apparently she had blue purple eyes and dark hair – yeah right That would make her striking But according to Laurie she wasn’t the gorgeous one her best friend Sarah was Alright Sarah seems to have of a personality and since she was gorgeous and sleeping with Jack I found it very hard to believe that Jack would pine for Laurie because what? they saw each other through a window? Do men operate like that? NopeGiven it's an English novel I expected some good ol’ British humour sarcasm banter I love banter – but there was no banter Those are the best bits about starting up a relationship Something tells me the author is a coffee drinker because nobody drinks tea in this novel so very un British of them smirk Besides a lot of alcohol drinking and getting drunk one of the very few things about this novel that were life like there’s very little of anything else Even douchebag Jack who’s a DJ never mentions music The only movies they briefly mention are Twilight and Grease Ok Oh I forgot The Great Gatsby is apparently highbrow literature don't they study it in high school in the States?Josie Silver does a whole lot of telling very little showing Laurie keeps telling everyone and Jack that they're best friends Really? Based on what? They spent less than 50 pages together This old romantic trope of the male best friend drives me crazy Most of us know that women and men can’t be friends because men young and old won’t spend time or think about a woman they don’t want to sleep with I mean friendship as in the kind you share intimacies and personal things not the hanging out type One Day in December was cliche and there were lots of things that irked me Annoying first person narration with two points of view Jack’s point of view only reinforcing his douchebag ualities Too much telling not enough showing actually it’s all telling; The novel's structure didn’t work for me too many vignettes not enough meat to the story; The worst thing was that the two main characters Laurie and Jack were flat unidimensional and I didn't feel their chemistry and basically didn't care one way or another about themAs far as I’m concerned One Day in December was boring trite uninspired and lacklustreWho wants my paperback?

    Can a fated glance across a misty bus window TRUE LOVE? One Day in December is the kind of book that will touch your heart and make you believe in love The kind of heartwarming love that is meant to be against all odds The kind of love that leaves you smiling just reading about it I opened the book and found myself immersed in Laurie and Jack's story It was exactly what I needed An addictive unputdownable angsty love story that filled my heart with a solid dose of romance The story is told from both Jack and Laurie's perspectives starting from the snowy December day they find themselves on opposite sides of a misty bus window inexplicably drawn to each other The moment is brief but the bond it forms within them is strong and leaves them both marked Can they find each other again or was this doomed to be a missed fleeting moment in both their lives?This is not a typical love story It unfolds over the course of ten angst filled years In the decade following the moment they first laid eyes on each other we follow Laurie and Jack's ups and downs their heartaches and relationships misunderstandings and of course their friendship and undeniable connection They may have the world's worst timing and a seemingly impossible road to love and happiness together but you can't help but root for them while wondering will they ever actually get to be together? Do you believe in destiny? That we all have that one perfect match the person we are meant to be with One Day in December was charming complex and romantic Laurie and Jack are perfectly flawed and the kind of well written characters that feel like friends you want to shake and yell at for not being honest about their feelings Every romantic at heart needs this book in their life

    HeartwarmingOne Day in December is a sweet story about friendship romance and true love The plot centers around a romance that could have been but was not Instead wrong matches are made friendships are put to the test and the notion of true love is tested This is the story of Laurie Sarah and Jack Told through Laurie and Jack’s alternating POV’s the reader learns over the course of time of what was not but what should have been Will true love prevail or will one be left heartbroken?What I liked about One Day in December is that all of the characters are likable Even when they are with the wrong romantic matches the “wrong” partner is never villainized rather things don’t work out because the wrong match was made The plot isn’t wholly original and it is a little predictable but the depth of characters and Laurie’s compelling narrative makeup for these issues I appreciated that the characters had depth and evolve over the course of the story Prior to reading this I was in a bit of a reading slump Nothing fit or felt uite right until I read One Day in December This turned out to be the perfect holiday read as it took away my reading frustrations and brought me into the holiday cheer

    this is a tricky book for me to rate and review my immediate reaction is that i enjoyed it hence the 4 stars i must be a glutton for heartache because ‘missed chances at love’ is a romance trope i uite enjoy ie one day and november 9 even though it breaks my heart at times there is just something so rewarding about seeing two people finally find their way to each other after many years of fighting for it and this book is a perfect example of that i especially loved seeing the character growth over the 10 years the story takes place it made for a really enjoyable reading experiencethat being said if i took the time to dissect and nitpick this much thoroughly i think would find a lot wrong with the story there are plenty of other reviews that shed light on problematic issues so i feel content enough not to go through all that i think i will just keep my thoughts focused on the positive aspects of this book and see it for the heartfelt and touching story that it can be ↠ 35 stars
