Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

I have read so many reviews on this book, all of them good. I waited until it came out in paperback, which I received last summer. Finally this week as I am getting geared up and ready for some challenges next year I figured that I had better read this one.

What can I say? It took me all of 2 days to finish it. I don't know if this is Lauren Oliver's first book, but I will definitely read more of her work. I loved the writing style, the flow of words, the twists and turns and how like a jigsaw puzzle everything fit together nicely at the end.

The book did remind me of 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher, and I had the same reaction, in that I wanted the ending to be different. Was it different? Did I get the ending that I wanted? Well I will never tell...


  1. Hi Margaret!! Thanks for signing up for the newbie hop! I hope it gets you a bunch of friends!

    I read this book and liked it as well! I will check out the Jay Asher if it's anything like this one!

  2. I've always wanted to read this book but I never got around to it. I read Thirteen Reasons Why by Asher and it was very good! Thank you for the great review.
