CrowCAH Is the book an epistolary novel, all written in letters? 1mo
julesG @CrowCAH Not exactly. It is epistolary-ly. It's always the same date of year over a span of 20 (?) years. But it's not just letters. 1mo
CrowCAH @julesG gotchya, seems an interesting way to write the book. 1mo

This book hit me like a sucker punch to the soul with a story filled with melancholy, snarky humor, missed opportunities and an ending I did not see coming. I couldn‘t put it down.

After seeing today‘s prompt, I thought:
- I should really watch that movie, Once.
- Wonder if it‘s on Netflix
- It‘s not - but look at the related titles, including One Day
- Am I ever going to read One Day? I‘ve had it since 2011
- Haven‘t seen the movie because I was surely going to read book first
- Most definitely, probably won‘t ever read One Day
- Give myself permission to watch One Day

A lovely, bittersweet story that covers 20 years of friendship, love, and loss, and a perfect final book to meet my goal of reading 50 books in 2018.

Here‘s to reading lots more awesome lit in 2019!

Emma and Dexter are best friends and follow each other‘s lives, loves, and hardships. They spend quite a lot of time not knowing they are #RightNextToTheRightOne, although it is pretty obvious for the reader 😉

I know today is hard, but here‘s a link to the song, so you might be inspired by the lyrics https://youtu.be/tIoW4Nel2v0
(Just found out Celine Dion made a cover of this, which I had no idea about!)

Happy One Day Day. This book is one of my favourites as it is told over 20 years focusing on the 15th July every year as it is when Dex and Em meet for the first time. It is such a wonderful book and idea. If you read this you will find that like me this couple will become one of your #favouriteliterarycouples

P.S Don't try the audiobook if you don't like the Yorkshire accent being done badly.

Day 13 - Book-to-Movie: It was amazing how easy it was to connect to the relationship of this couple through a one day yearly snapshot. Dex & Em are a cute unexpected couple. Yes, they can be exasperating, but you‘re pulling for them to get together & then you‘re pulling for them to make it. You‘re hoping that long awaited happiness can last. The book was good. The movie was okay. The need for tissues is real. Recommended! #ReadingResolutions

Even though “Dex and Em” frustrated me for a majority of the story, they still kept me entertained. I enjoyed the format of glimpsing their lives on one day over the years, full of ordinary moments, and seeing their growth as people and friends.

I‘m a little early with this #FreakyFriday read, but I was already planning to use it for my #UnconventionalRomance for #Booked2018. #MountTBR

I read this book years ago and am still in love with not only the story but the way it‘s told. This is the book that made me fall in love with unconventional storytelling and helped me realize that I‘m meant to be a director, so it will always be at the top of my recommendation lists.

Em and Dex, Dex and Em. Two people that we catch up with every year on exactly the same day. This is the second time ive read this book and I‘m sobbing, totally sobbing, and if a book can do that to you twice then it‘s a really good book. If you haven‘t read this, don‘t watch the film, read it! Your laugh and your cry but your enjoy the ride.

At first the book was okay. Nothing spectacular and not that memorable. However, the twist at the end made it memorable. It was a sad, sad book and made you think about your current relationships. You'll will love Emma Morley, Dexter Mayhew and Jasmine. I wish I could tell you that this will end happily but it was sad and unexpected.

#novemberbythenumbers Love David Nicholls, always laugh out loud, and super poignant too.... Adore this book, where we check in with a couple of on-again-off-again friends on St. Swithin‘s day every year for 20 years.... BUT the movie is dreadful! Avoid it at all costs!

So I was tagged by @readingtoforget to do #unreadbooks I have tons of them. This is just one of them.
Question: Which type of books do you read more paperbacks, hardbacks or ebooks? And which of the three are more in the unread pile?
I read more ebooks because they‘re affordable and easy to carry everywhere. But I think I have equal number of unread paperbacks and ebooks.

BookishBlonde12 Oh man, I switch constantly. I would say pretty 50/50 for paperbacks and ebooks. Most unread, hardcovers. 📖 2y
laurenbescoby I finally picked this up in August after having it on my kindle for about 3 years! Loved it. I'm about 10% ebooks 90% print. I love holding a book and the smell. It's comforting. 2y
laurenbescoby I have a lot of paperbacks in the unread pile, because they're the usual format I find on charity shops and I buy way more than I can read! 2y
CoffeeCatsBooks I'd say I'm split evenly been paperbacks and hardcovers. I used to read more ebooks due to ease of travel but I really like looking at my books so I rarely buy them now. Most of my unread ones are hardcover because I buy a lot of nonfiction history (that I intend to read one day). 2y
diovival I definitely have a longer list of unread print books vs ebooks because that is what I read most often. I think the paperback stack is the largest. 2y

#shoesoncovers This is one instance when I prefer the movie cover - even though I have never seen the movie! I love Emma's boots, which look like Doc Martens to me. After I got over the continuity issue - I remember her sneakers were described in detail for this particular scene in the book - I fell in love with this cover. I even have a bookmark of it from the library.

Skeebies05 I l❤️ Anne Hathaway but man she was a miscast for this movie. 2y
