One Day

Before my wife and I were officially an item, we read David Nicholls's One Day together, and it was an emotional roller coaster. The narrative follows college acquaintances Dexter and Emma every year for two decades via their letters to each other. The arcs suck you in, the time gaps allow for increasingly intriguing major life events, and don't even get me started on the ending. When it was all over, we were crying together, and my only tattoo is a quote from the novel. Needless to say, it left an impression.
