GIVEAWAY: Just One Day (in one day!)

I'm so excited to bring this giveaway to you today! Tomorrow (Tuesday) is the release of Gayle Forman's Just One Day, easily one of the biggest highlights of YA contemporary in 2013. I love this novel, you guys. Loooooove.

Here's the official description:

When sheltered American good girl Allyson "LuLu" Healey first meets laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter at an underground performance of Twelfth Night in England, there’s an undeniable spark. After just one day together, that spark bursts into a flame, or so it seems to Allyson, until the following morning, when she wakes up after a whirlwind day in Paris to discover that Willem has left. Over the next year, Allyson embarks on a journey to come to terms with the narrow confines of her life, and through Shakespeare, travel, and a quest for her almost-true-love, to break free of those confines.

Just One Day is the first in a sweepingly romantic duet of novels. Willem’s story—Just One Year—is coming soon!

Did you guys catch that? A romance set in Paris? I know that's got to appeal to at least a few of you. ;-) 

I was crazy-fortunate to be an early reader/critique partner/ear-lender for this book, and I'm thrilled that it's finally release time. This book is SO SO SO romantic and smart and yummy. Willem. WILLEM. Just wait until you meet him! He's positively scrumptious.

Not only is this book perfect for readers who are already fans of Gayle's work, but it's also great for readers who would've liked to have read If I Stay, but were unable to due to that book's content.* It has all of her classic hallmarks—the heartwrenching tension! the gorgeous boys! the spot-on dialogue!—but without the accompanying sadness and tragedy. I really, really hope that this book continues to widen Gayle's audience, because she's just . . . she's just the best.

*If you're unfamiliar with it, the story begins with a car crash that kills the main character's entire family. Understandably, not everyone can read/handle that. But those of you who can should. It's so freaking beautiful.

Can you spot the gummy bear and Swedish Fish in my hair? 

Gayle going in for the fish . . .

. . . SUCCESS!

SO. You're probably interested in the giveaway.

I have two advanced copies, ready to ship. This giveaway is open internationally, and it will last, appropriately, just one day. That way everyone who doesn't win tomorrow can immediately go out and purchase it. Yes? Yes.

TO ENTER: Please leave a comment here on this post—not on Goodreads or anywhere else that's being served by a feed—with (1) your name, (2) your email address, and (3) the title of your favorite romantic read from 2012. Easy peasy! The two winners will be selected at random and announced here tomorrow.

Good luck!
