About this deal
She never said anything until one night when she confessed her feelings. Now she’s afraid she’s ruined their friendship forever.
It was initially recorded in Tate’s bedroom unprofessionally. Since then, the video has amassed over 25 million views on YouTube and compelled Tate to professionally record it and release it on streaming platforms. This new recording was released on December 28 of the same year. I stood on the edge of the lawn, the phone still pressed to my ear. Cars pulled in and out of the parking lot, and kids rumbled from the building, taking the stairs two at a time as they raced into the liberty of the afternoon. The sky over my head was almost painful blue, the grass a bright and vivid green. It was a crisp, beautiful, perfect fall day. I fell in love with Joe through the cards and letters - they were so personal and highlighted the couple’s deep connection.Have you ever read a book that was completely addicting, really moving (enough to make you cry), and in the end, still had no idea how to rate it?
It's a rather emotional book, but at the same time, its a book that is filled with love. Love shown in many different ways but most certainly of love. I don’t think it’s really the catastrophe that prevented me from completely enjoying the novel. I think it’s that I couldn’t completely relate with the main character and the narrator (Zoe) and I couldn’t help but disagree with a lot of her worldviews as manifested in her thoughts, actions and words. Some of the things she says could really be offensive for particular types of readers. The rest of the characters (except maybe for Olivia) seemed one-dimensional, very stereotypical and in a not so flattering way. I also wasn’t a huge fan of the writing because even though this is supposedly an emotional story, I didn’t think there was enough emotional depth in the writing and I just felt quite detached. This book will pull on every heart string you have. Happy, sad, adventurous, anger, devastating, etc. I really can’t just pin it on one main emotion I felt. I even teared up a few times.
I don't know if I can say that I really finished this book because I literally just thoroughly skimmed through the middle and just read the first 10 and last 10 chapters and mind you, I'm definitely NOT that kind of LAZY reader but this book made me one. I hate it so much I just did what I can do to really finish it. Maybe One Day is an epic love story, but it's also a story about facing tragedy and finding yourself. I was fully invested in Jess and Joe's story and couldn't wait to see where it would all lead, but I also loved seeing Jess finally come into her own. Following the letters and clues from place to place kept me on the edge of my seat, as I pieced together the years right along with Jess, Michael, and Belinda. Speaking of Belinda and Michael, they really helped balance the story so well. They gave much needed comic relief when things got a bit too heavy and I loved how supportive they all were in seeing this journey through. Unfortunately, the ending left me wanting more and it all wrapped up a bit abruptly (especially because of how much these two endured through the years). My heart was left happy and hopeful though, and I want to believe I know how things look in the future. I’ve been on a bit of a romcom frenzy lately. I don’t know what it is about them, light, airy, fun, easy.. who knows?
