Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver Book Review

Goodreads Summary:

For popular high school senior Samantha Kingston, February 12—"Cupid Day"—should be one big party, a day of valentines and roses and the privileges that come with being at the top of the social pyramid. And it is…until she dies in a terrible accident that night.

However, she still wakes up the next morning. In fact, Sam lives the last day of her life seven times, until she realizes that by making even the slightest changes, she may hold more power than she ever imagined.


I decided to re-read this book because there is going to be a movie adaptation. I read this book a long time ago, so I kind of forgot some parts of this book. I want to refresh my memory before watching the movie.

I like the story. I already liked it the first time I read it, but I had a hard time finishing this book the first time I read it. I was hoping that I won't be feeling the same, now that I'm older, but it just kind of happened again. Some parts of the story is really tiring for me. There are books that I just can't put down, and this book isn't one of them. Sometimes I got bored and all I wanted to do was put the book down. But with that being said, I still like this book.

I like how sensitive this story is. I like the main character's development. Sam's realization that to solve the issue, she has to make a change in her life. That everything that happens to her is based on everybody else, too. It's really deep and I can see why this can be someone's favorite book.

The last time I rated this book, I gave it a 4 stars. But I think that's just too generous, haha, so I'm going to give this book a 3.5/5 stars! This isn't my favorite book, but I would recommend this book for everyone to read. And I can't wait to watch the movie, I hope it'll be great!
