She has done this in the past with her other books, specifically in 2011 with Just One Day. So it isn't a new thing. I think you have to be in the mood for the all in one day theme. :) Some authors can make it work really well, Gayle is one of them. (less)

    Freya, Harun, and Nathaniel. Three very different individuals whose paths are about to collide in New York City. Freya is an aspiring singer who has just lost her voice. Harun is running away-literally-from his loving, yet overbearing family. And Nathaniel is coming to New York followi...

    3.5/5 stars I Have Lost My Way is a contemporary standalone novel. It is listed as Young Adult. But it doesn't really feel like YA to me. They are 19 years old. I guess since they are teens and their parents are so involved in their lives that it could be considered YA. But I'm used...

    They may be complete strangers, with different lives and different problems, but there in that examination room they are measuring sadness the same way. They are measuring it in loss. I'm writing this review immediately after finishing because I am on such an emotional high right no...

    This was a wonderful little story about friendship, family, and honestly acceptance on so many different degrees. I really enjoyed reading this book and the characters are so amazingly written. They have depth and all three are going through something vastly different in their lives. I...

    This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books. Have you ever lost your way? I have. I don't mean those times when I needed to stop and ask for directions when I was trying to find a location although I have certainly been that kind of lost. I am referring to the kin...

    Diepe zucht... wat een fijne en bijzondere Forman-roman was dit weer! Hele sterke en authentieke personages, vernuftige perspectieftrucjes en wendingen die me echt hebben gefascineerd en gentrigeerd. Er zit zoveel in, het is zo vlot en boeiend en de boodschap is zo mooi. Enige nadeel...

    This was heartbreaking and amazing, but it's Gayle, so that wasn't surprising. I loved Freya, Harun, and Nathaniel. They're all going through something and it's devastating in their world. Their grief and sadness and uncertainty somehow makes the three of them meet at a time when t...

    This is a little blue bundle of emotional destruction. I actually had NO idea what this new Forman book was about, but I really love If I Stay (I sniffled a bit ok, I do have feelings apparently) and this one had that same emotional ruuuuin. So that was GREAT. However there are a few t...

    3.5 Stars I have been a fan of Gayle Forman for a while now, and I have been dying to read I Have Lost My Way since it was first announced. The story focuses on three characters who meet because of an accident, and I enjoyed each of them. However, the plot is hard to believe, and I ...

    Hoewel ik soms nog niet de klik had met de drie hoofdpersonages, kwam dat helemaal goed op het einde. Man man man, het was zo zielig, maar ook zo mooi. Na jaren ga ik waarschijnlijk Gayle Forman eindelijk ontmoeten deze zomer, ik kan niet wachten! Lees hier mijn recensie: http://nerdy...

    3.5 stars At first, I thought this was going to be my least favorite Gayle Forman novel. I prepared to say that prefer the If I Stay series and Leave Me over this one, but now I?m not so sure. For the first fifty pages, I thought this was going to be a two-star read. I just di...

    This is my first Gayle Forman book since Just One Day that I read...five years ago! I had no idea what to expect because that book didn't make any impressions on me at all, but this? I loved it! The three perspectives were balanced perfectly, and no character felt more prominent th...

    This one was quite the simple story, but it sure did pack a punch. Good things, small packages, etc etc. You know how it is. I must confess up front that books that span one day have always fascinated me. There is something about the limited scope of them that is intriguing t...

    I really liked this, the characters were so deep and wonderful, and there's some great representation too! The one thing is, that I wish it was a little longer. It didn't quite seem resolved at the end, everything just felt way too open for my liking. Maybe just an extra 20-30 page...

    Trigger Warnings for mental health, abandonment, suicide, and homophobia. I Have Lost My Way is one of those books you need to savour. At the beginning of this book I didn?t know any of the characters, just as Freya, Nathaniel and Harun didn?t know one another. Yet as their stor...
