Book Beginnings on Friday (7)

Book Beginnings on Friday is a new meme hosted by Becky at Page Turners. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading. If you'd like, share with everyone why you do, or do not, like the sentence.

Before I Fall
By Lauren Oliver

They say that just before you die your whole life flashes before your eyes, but that's not how it happened for me.

Before I Fall is the story of a popular young teen who dies and then relives her last day over and over for a week, realizing things about herself and others and receiving the chance to do things differently. I love how the story starts right away with Samantha's death and then goes back to share her last day. From the first sentence I was drawn into the story. I actually started and finished this book today because I couldn't put it down.


  1. I *really* want to read this book, and can't figure out why I haven't bought it yet. It could be because my TBR shelf is straining to hold up all those books. lol

  2. I've just ordered this book, I can't wait to read it :D

  3. Sounds really good and interesting. I like those books where even though you know the end from the beginning, you are still sucked into the story

  4. Sounds like a great book to read by the pool this summer.


  5. I had heard of this one and I was intrigued. I must see if we own a copy, yet.

    P.S. I just gave you an award at Austen Knows Best!

  6. I still need to buy myself a copy of this book. It has gotten so many amazing good reviews.

  7. I've been seeing this book everywhere so of course I am very curious!=)
