There is just enough time to squeeze in one last summer read before you’re back to burying your nose in class notes and hefty textbooks. We recommend “One Day”, by David Nicholls. The tale follows two romantically connected BFF’s – Emma and Dexter – whose differences are as obvious as their chemistry. Dexter is an arrogant and boisterous character that is easy to image, as we have all known a guy that is just like that. Emma, on the other hand, is awkward, unsure, and has encountered her fair share of misfortunes. They live very separate lives, but their paths cross once every year, beginning with their college graduation in 1988.
Our favorite part of the book? It takes place in England. You may find yourself slipping into a British accent and interjecting unique jargon into your daily conversations as you make your way through this book. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
P.S. This book is currently being made into a movie starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess! Trust us, it’s always better to read the book before seeing the movie.
