Life Lessons from Gayle Forman + Giveaway


Hello, everyone! Today we celebrate the amazing work of  Gayle Forman. Penguin Teen has asked me to help them celebrate Gayle Forman paperback release of I WAS HERE, her newest young adult book, on January 26th.

I am a hopeless romantic anything that involves love and romance, I’ll read and Gayle Forman is no exception. To show you how amazing her writing is. I’ve put together some heart stopping quotes from my favorite books. 3

  • “Sometimes the best way to find out what you’re supposed to do is by doing the thing you’re not supposed to do.”
    ― Gayle Forman, Just One Day
  • “You have to fall in love to be in love, but falling in love isn’t the same as being in love”
    ― Gayle Forman, Just One Day
  • “I think everything is happening all the time, but if you don’t put yourself in the path of it, you miss it.”
    ― Gayle Forman, Just One Day


  • “There’s a difference between losing something you knew you had and losing something you discovered you had. One is a disappointment. The other feels like losing a piece of yourself.”
    ― Gayle Forman, Just One Year
  • “Love is not something you protect. It’s something you risk.”
    ― Gayle Forman, Just One Year
  • “Saba used to say there was a difference between bravery and courage. Bravery was doing something dangerous without thinking. Courage was walking into danger, knowing full well the risks.”
    ― Gayle Forman, Just One Year


  • “And the kiss feels like something completely new. But it also feels like something deeply known.”
    ― Gayle Forman, Just One Night
  • “You win some, you lose some. And sometimes you win and lose at the same time. Life’s a bloody cockup.”
    ― Gayle Forman, Just One Night
  • “Allyson meanwhile is remembering. Why this person? All the things she has told herself, or other people have told her – infatuation or Paris or good acting or lust – no longer hold water, because she remembers so viscerally and feels it anew. It’s not any of that. It’s not even him. Or all him. It’s her. The way she can be with him.”
    ― Gayle Forman, Just One Night
