They say ‘live every day as if it’s your last’—but you never actually think it’s going to be. At least I didn’t.

The thing is, you don’t get to know when it happens. You don’t remember to tell your family that you love them or—in my case—remember to say goodbye to them at all.

But what if, like me, you could live your last day over and over again? Could you make it perfect? If your whole life flashed before your eyes, would you have no regrets? Or are there some things you’d want to change…?

Wow. This book was NOT what I was expecting. In the beginning, I thought it was going to be terribly annoying but no! I absolutely loved this! And to be honest, I can’t even believe I loved it this much because on the other side I hate it (?) If you’ve read the book, you can probably guess why.

This book was so incredibly gripping! I didn’t want to put it down for nothing in this world, except… Exams, which is what happened. But I still had to find time to read this anyway, because I needed to know more! I don’t think you guys can understand how much my heart jumped with this book. It was so emotional! And somewhat similar to Thirteen Reasons Why, which I didn’t know and read previously. Not in the plot, but the moral of the story is a bit the same. But I loved this one way more!

It’s a realistic book but it contains a non-realistic spin. Which I thought would make it repetitive and lame, but turned out making it unexpected and heart wrenching.

Before I Fall talks about love, friendship, bullying and the classic snowball effect. This book has a bit of Mean Girls vibe to it, but it’s way more than that! It shows the pov from both the person who is bullied and the person(s) who is bullying. And that made all the difference!

I loved the characters. I loved the romantic moments it contained (seriously goals!). I loved how the story progressed, and how much detailed it contained every time, without getting boring. I loved everything in this book, although it broke my heart into a million pieces.

Plus, the writing was amazing! This was my first book from the author and I absolutely loved the writing, and for sure will check out more of her books! This is definitely a favorite! I understand that this might not be for everybody but if your tastes are any similar to mine, I would seriously recommend this book if you haven’t read it already!

The only thing I’m missing now is to check out the movie. But soon enough I will! Have you guys seen it yet? What are your thoughts on it?

  1. I’ve read this book but it’s been such a long time since I have. I’m glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for an awesome review. I’ve never read a book that I thought I was going to dislike, so I’ve never hated to love a book. =)

    I’m new to blogging and book reviewing, and I was wondering if you had any tips for newbie bloggers and book reviewers.

    If you have the time, please check out my blog @breenysbooks. I’d love any feedback. Have a wonderful day.
