    ARC provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review You can buy the book here You tread lightly through life, but you leave deep footprints that are hard for other people to fill 5 starsOne Day in December is an epic story centered around three people Laurie, Sarah and Jack It all start on a December day.Laurie doesn t believe in first sight love.She sees a man through the bus window.She believes now.She searches for him, every now and then.She thinks is sure he is the one for her.She finally finds him.In a wrong place.And their story begins now.This is what I call an addictive book You just can t put it down for a second The story is so engaging and it satisfies you but also leaves you wanting And here comes my only problem with the book In the end I was left wanting .The characters are amazing and quirky but I wanted to connect with them The books focuses on situations that the characters create, way than in the characters themselves.Overall, as you can see from my rating, I loved the book It is such a winter read, where you can take a blanket, a hot cup of tea or coffee and read the hell out of this book Was it worth reading Absolutely Will I read it again Yes of course Would I recommend it Yes yes yes Save it for Christmas.

    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

    Heartwarming One 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 quite 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

    4, do you believe in love stars Full review featured on my blog Recipe a Read It all begins one day in December I know, shocker, you had no idea We start our story with Laurie, she doesn t believe in love at first sight, she s having a normal run of the mill day, then BOOM she sees a man outside her bus window As their eyes meet, she feels an instant connection Laurie s brain shorts out and she does nothing as the bus pulls away, she then runs through endless possibilities of what she could have done, what she should have done in that moment From now on, if anyone asks me if I ve ever fallen in love at first sight, I shall say yes, for one glorious minute on 21 December 2008.Even though it was just one fleeting moment between Laurie and Jack AKA Bus Boy she spends the next year looking for him everywhere she goes She sees him in bars, at bus stops, in shops because she can t even begin to fathom that it wasn t destiny passing her by Of course, fate had far bigger things planned for Laurie and Jack and they do reconnect Only this time, it s on the arm of her best friend Sarah This is told from alternating POVs between Jack and Sarah As we receive Jack s point of view, it turns out he actually did recognize Laurie and he remembers the many times he thought about her after their chance encounter at the bus stop as well However, nothing in life is ever easy and he genuinely does care for Sarah, so he attempts a friendship with Laurie, despite it s difficulty You tread lightly through life, but you leave deep footprints that are hard for other people to fill.There was an immediate cinematic quality to this and I will be truly shocked if it doesn t get made into a movie in the near future This story follows 10 years between Laurie, Jack and Sarah and their ever changing relationships with one another, along with people they meet along the way While it s a fairly traditional romance there was something effortlessly engaging here that keeps the reader attached to not just the story, but the characters as well.Who was St Valentine anyway and what made him such an expert on romance I m willing to bet his full name is St Smugbastard three s crowd Valentine, and he probably lives on a candle lit island where everything comes in pairs, even bouts of thrush.What s great is that Silver doesn t just rely on angst here, while it s there in spades there s also a levity and humor that carries throughout the story This isn t just about the dreaded love triangle, betrayal or friendships and relationships lost and found No, it s about life, about it s triumphs and failures, about success and loss, about growth and learning who we are While this ultimately fell just a bit short for me because it was quite predictable, I absolutely loved the story Silver wove and it s a quick, incredibly fun read that I had a really fun time with I d suggest this for fans of romance or anyone looking for a quick, fun and cozy winter read Thank you to the ever amazing Traveling Sisters for facilitating this group read and providing us with physical ARCs

    me reading that this is a love story about missed opportunities me reading the words best friend s boyfriend me 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 way.i 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 vacation view spoiler ALSO, 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 AND THEN THE BOOK JUST ENDS COWARD S WAY OUT, AUTHOR SOLVE THE PROBLEMS YOU VE MADE FOR YOURSELF hide spoiler

    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 quite 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 experience.that 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 3.5 stars
