Review: Before I Fall

 Before I Fall   
Author: Lauren Oliver
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Purchase: Amazon | B&N | TBD

Synopsis: 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?

Samantha 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.


This is one of those books you can't describe. You just tell people to read it for them to understand how amazing it is.

I have to give it to Oliver and her amazing writing skills that made me feel a roller coaster of emotions whilst reading this book. She made me hate Sam and her friends but also understood their characters.

Sam was a very realistic character with not just superficial and cliche flaws but real flaws like those in real people. She makes stupid choices, says stupid things, does stupid mistakes but in the end, how she tried and tried and tried to right those things mattered the most. Even it meant doing something she can't undo and sacrificing something important.

This book tore my heart out and made me cry real tears. This is beyond amazing.
