Summary from Amazon:
buy the book from The Book Depository, free delivery"It’s 1988 and Dexter Mayhew and Emma Morley have only just met. But after only one day together, they cannot stop thinking about one another. Over twenty years, snapshots of that relationship are revealed on the same day—July 15th—of each year. Dex and Em face squabbles and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, laughter and tears. And as the true meaning of this one crucial day is revealed, they must come to grips with the nature of love and life itself."

I have no idea what to write for this review. And not because I just don't have anything to say about this book, but a mixture of 'I read this book ages ago' and 'I don't know how to express what I feel about this book without it sounding like a bunch of mumbo jumbo'. So, I am going to try for clear and concise. This has to be one of the best books I have ever read. No joke - the book's structure was unlike anything I had seen before, I completely fell in love with the characters, and the plot (albeit predictable at times) did completely throw me at the end - I really was not expecting that ending there. I think that this has to be one of the books that you just have to read.

I Did It Again...

BLOGOSPHERE oh how I have missed you. If you follow this blog, you'll probably remember that some time in July (or was it June?) I welcomed myself back to blogging after neglecting it for about 2 months, with full intentions to continue to avidly blog. And now, here I am re-welcoming myself after about 3 months of inactivity (awkies). I don't even know what happened, but I think it's safe to assume that uni work is to blame again. And this time, it wasn't that I just wasn't posting as much on the blog, but I also wasn't reading as much (I just finished A Lasting Impression by Tamera Alexander about a week ago and I've been reading that for agesssss). But, with the academic year finally over, and a long 3 month break before uni starts up next year, I think that now is the perfect time to launch back into reading and blogging. With no immediate plans for the future, I am going to read and read and read, because I have many a book to read if I want to complete the reading challenges I signed up for this year (although, I think it's safe to assume that at least one won't be completed, but not for a lack of trying!). WATCH THIS SPACE PEOPLE!
