Recommended by Kari @ A Good Addiction:

  • Where She Went by Gayle Foreman: Best 24 hours in a book EVER. And SO much intensity and emotion and fun and pain in it too.
  • The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith: Mostly on a plane, but also in England. So much fun.
  • Riding Out the Storm by Sis Deans: Mostly on a bus. Man do I not want to get stuck on a bus in a snowstorm.
  • Ditched by Robin Mellon: Takes place more during a morning, but recaps the last 24 hours more or less. Most interesting prom ever.

  • One Night That Changes Everything is the only book that I’ve read recently that takes place in such a short time span.

  • Ah completely forgot about Empire Records! Man I really want to watch that again. May have to see if it’s on instant netflix 🙂

    P.S. not sure what book TQ read, but they went to London not Paris lol.

    • I wasn’t so sure either, but I thought maybe Tara just really wanted to share her desire to go to Paris 😉

      I would also like to go to Paris or England and have a nice, hot guy next to me on the plane, so I can’t blame her.

  • This one was HARD for me! I could only think of The Statistical Probability — because I just read it. I’m almost halfway through Graffiti Moon, and didn’t realize it fell into this category. I’ve read Nick and Norah (and that was too long ago for me to remember.) Didn’t think of Where She Went (I’ve read that one.) And, DaVinci code? I didn’t remember that was 24 hours either. I’m just lame. Good job. You are better than I am….

  • I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your site. It looks like some of the text within your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Many thanks
