Review: Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Hey guys!  Sorry about my absence this week, it's been a crazy busy week. But I'm back! :)


What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?

Samantha Kingston has it all: the world's most crush-worthy boyfriend, three amazing best friends, and first pick of everything at Thomas Jefferson High—from the best table in the cafeteria to the choicest parking spot. Friday, February 12, should be just another day in her charmed life.
Instead, it turns out to be her last.

Then she gets a second chance. Seven chances, in fact. Reliving her last day 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.

Grade: A


After reading this book, I was just sitting there saying, "Wow."  Literally.  This book was so amazing.  Samantha is a very realistic main character.  I haven't read a main character in a long time that seemed as real as Samantha was to me. I  could understand where she was coming from with her decisions and why she did most things the way she did.

There's so much emotion in this book... it takes you by surprise when you're first reading it.  What made it even better was that Oliver writes in a way that makes you feel all the emotion, not just read about it.

Overall, Before I Fall is a wonderful debut novel that I recommend you to read. :)


This book was reviewed as apart of Around the World Tours.  I was in no way, shape, or form paid for writing this review.
