About the Author
KE Payne was born in Bath, the English city, not the tub, and after leaving school she worked for the British government for fifteen years, which probably sounds a lot more exciting than it really was.
Fed up with spending her days moving paperwork around her desk and making models of the Taj Mahal out of paperclips, she packed it all in to go to university in Bristol and graduated as a mature student in 2006 with a degree in linguistics and history. After graduating, she worked at a university in the Midlands for a while, again moving all that paperwork around, before finally leaving to embark on her dream career as a writer.
She moved to the idyllic English countryside in 2007 where she now lives and works happily surrounded by dogs and guinea pigs.

I read 365 days and love these characters, especially Clemmie and Han. There is a lot to enjoy in this sequel also. For me it has some major flaws. For months Clemmie is having an old crush hit on her, and she just passively lets it happen. She knows the pain she has endured over jealousy, but just a few pages from the end of this book, she is making out at a party with the old crush while the love of her life Han has gone to the toilet. So, I don't feel sure Clemmie loves Han really. Perhaps she just likes some dramatic amphetamine in her love life.
I love reading YA books. However, this YA adult did not appeal to me. I think this book is great and many 16 year old girls or younger could relate. However, as an adult, I found that I could not relate to this book. I think if this book was written as a narrative and a story, not from a diary, I would have felt more drawn in to the book. However, I felt like I was reading a 16 year old's diary. Which would be great, if I was a teen or tween. However, as an adult, I grew bored. Like most 16 year olds, Clem focuses on the same issues over and over. However, I liked that she faced real life issues that teenagers today are dealing with. I would highly recommend this book to tweens and teens.
Although I didn't enjoy it as much as the previous book, Another 365 Days was a decent book. There were times when I laughed out loud, but there were also times when I rolled my eyes and became irritated with Clemmie. Something about the book caused it to fall short when compared to the previous book and I don't know if I can pinpoint what that something was.
