Ritten of course with a perfect atmosphere fitting the story and all the emotions of the characters but so are many many other books I ve read Nothing special on that part for me sadly That is the reason I couldn t give this book five stars but it is the one and only Everything else was perfectBD Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin This book could have been great but it was almost embarrassing to read at times I know that sounds pretty mean but c monI can appreciate any novel that mentions Kathleen Hannah and Courtney Love in positive context it also earns points for being set near Portland but I can t respect a novel that is full of cliches unrealistic characters and CHEESE I almost had to stop reading when one character played the other character s body like a guitar and I actually id stop reading for awhile when the girl brought out her Graphical Methods for Data Analysis damn cello bow and started running it along her boyfriend s body Seriously Would this ever really happen I know this is fantasy but the authoroesn t write it like it is supposed to be a Iraq dreamThe parents were the worst part of the book for me They were the parents absolutely every teenager in the Western world wishes that they had cool young know music laidback had wild young adulthoods act like teenagers and are just soamn awesome it hurts There really is no happy medium in teen fiction parents are either antagonists or sidekicks these Ford daysThe premise was a great one being able to choose between life oreath And it could ve been awesome But this book was sadly not awesome it was poorly written and cheesy My impression It was good Not fantastic but okay Decent Tolerable But I m a bit irritated with this book right now because it is one of those books that has been ridiculously overrated Yeah it was sad But not Spartan devastating Not heart wrenching This book was fine but I honestly think that if I had read the first chapter and then read the last chapter I wouldn t have missed much Yes her parents were both beautiful people who will be missed And I have to admit the whole story of he brother s life andeath tugged at my heartstrings But at the end of the book I found myself feeling bored than anything This book wasn t new or original or groundbreaking It was a way for me to kill time while I waited for my Mom to pick me up from school I ve seen stuff like this novel a million times before and most of them were a lot sad Sorry Forman but I m not impressed EDIT Guys I wrote this review in 2010 Do you seriously feel the need to continue

If I StayDespite the general hype about this book I had my reservations because I had gone into The Lovely Bones with similar optimism and been highly isappointed by a story that never really took off and was simply Two Brothers, One Tail drab and boring After reading the goodreadsescription for this I imagined something of the same and could only hope I wouldn t have a repeat performanceTo be honest if you re looking for fast paced adventure and a really gripping plot then I m not sure this book is for you Gayle Forman uses subtleties and beautiful writing to tell her story in a Woman Much Missed deeply emotional and moving way She creates wonderful moments from the most simplistic things as playing cello or going to a concert or the protagonist spending time with her grandfather Where The Lovely Bones was a book abouteath If I Stay is very much a book about life and how the small things we overlook are so important Forman creates the sense that life is always worth living even when it seems that your whole world is falling apart if you have nothing else you still have a friend who Why Americas Top Pundits Are Wrong d risk their life for you Still think your life isn t worth living when someone wouldisagree to such an extentThe many Citizen Cain different relationships in the book are told in varied but eually moving ways The author shows the intricate relationship

Oregon with only one close friend is shown in this book to have a life full of love and things to be grateful for I found it truly inspiring and heartwarming I will be reading the seuel without aoubt How to Train a Cowboy dear ohear this gave me major before i fall flashbacks which was one of the most One Special Moment disappointing books i read this year this isnt as terrible as that but iefinitely have come to realise the whole teen ies but given second chance trope is just not for me which is a shame because there is a lot to be said for the messages and lessons taught within that kind of story but for this book in particular it actually isnt the plot that bothers me the most although it oes a little its the constant switching between the present moment at the hospital and flashbacks to the past only because i was invested in what happened to mia after the accident and what was going on at the hospital so the flashbacks to random points in her life Watch for Me by Moonlight (The Midnight Twins, distracted me from that i appreciate that they are used for characterevelopment but i often found myself skimming forward to the present The Mommy Makeover day sections on aifferent note i actually really enjoyed the ending and i thought it was well The Convicts Bounty Bride (Convict Wives done i uickly read the synopsis for the seuel and it honestly sounds a million times interesting than this book so i willefinitely be picking that up as it sounds much like my kind of story 3 stars If I Stay If I Stay 1 Gayle FormanIf I Stay is a young adult novel by Gayle

9789644083587 I was actually uite shocked to find that this book First Blood did not even make me shed one tear Weird huhUnless you count tears of boredom Other people THIS BOOK OMG THE FEELS I M SOBBING UNCONTROLLABLY Me Wait where was the part where I was supposed to cryDespite what you re probably thinking Iid not base this review on whether or not I would cry I gave it two stars because it The Palliser Novels did not affect me in any way Rather it bored me Other than the fact that I was bored to tears I had several major issues with If I StayFor one I failed to empathize with a vast majority of the characters The connection just wasn t there slightly contributing to myisliking of this book Identifying with characters is extremely important for me as a reader especially with these types of books I id NOT APPRECIATE MIA S EMOTIONLESS VOICE WHICH I KNOW appreciate Mia s emotionless voice which I know eliberate on the author s part because it id not fit this sort of story The characters in this book were much too perfect It was palpable from that first view spoiler and only hide spoiler In a single moment everything changes Seventeen year old Mia has no memory of the

finds herself watching as her own Brazen and the Beast (The Bareknuckle Bastards, damaged body is taken from wreck A sophisticated layered and heartachingly beautiful story about the power of family and friends the choices we all make and the ultimate choice Mia commands WHY I DROPPED ITIidn t like the book I just thought it was completely useless Nothing was really sad except times where Mia had
