Well, now that I'm back with books from the library, I'll be posting book reviews on my blog and on my Goodreads! I'm still pretty new at writing book reviews, so if you have any suggestions on how I can improve my writing, don't hesitate on commenting below! Well, without further ado, here is my review... (hehe, it rhymes!)
What if you only had one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?
Kingston has it all: looks, popularity, the perfect boyfriend. Friday,
February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it
turns out to be her last.
The catch: Samantha still wakes up the
next morning. Living the last day of her life seven times during one
miraculous week, she will untangle the mystery surrounding her death—and
discover the true value of everything she is in danger of losing.
My rating: 5/5 stars!!!
I can't... No... Is this for real... I mean...
my emotions are kind of all over the place, so bear with me if this
review is a little scattered around different subjects...
start off by saying that if you haven't read "Before I Fall", you're
seriously missing on some YA brilliancy. I'm literally jealous of Lauren
Oliver and her ability of writing something so genius. She really gets
it; highschool, teenagers, the haves and have-nots, I mean, this book is
the real deal.
In the beginning, I resented Samantha. I
disliked her personality, her friends, her attitude. But I shouldn't
have been surprised, she was in the popular group after all. But slowly,
as the (same) days went by, I started to see a new side of Sam that I
totally didn't expect. She wasn't shallow as I thought after all. Yes,
she wasn't a total nice girl, but at the end, I think she always did
want to do the right thing, but I guess she was just too insecure or
scared to make a move. Oliver made every character in the book so
complex, yet simple. Their personalities were just all really genuine,
and their imperfections and flaws just made them seem more real.
love how this book is so hard to predict. Every new page always brought
something I never would have expected, and I loved the anticipation I
felt at every turn of the page. I couldn't take my eyes off this book!
find the whole idea behind this book absolutely brilliant. This book
could've easily turned into a flop, but instead it blew away my
expectations. Right pace, right characters, right plot. Everything just
felt right and in place.
"Before I Fall" made me feel a flurry of
emotions. It overwhelmed me with its melancholy and sadness. Yet, I
feel satisfied with this book. I could not have asked more of it. Sam's
story will take you into a tumultuous ride filled with pain, grief, love
and realization that life is so much precious than you think.
