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.

    This book is very original and I throughly enjoyed reading it. The story line is very interesting and although the main character lives the same day time an time again, every day is different in her approach which makes each chapter unique and interesting. The story is sad and at times emotional but it is also heartwarming and I would highly recommend it

    This book is about a girl named Samantha Kingston who is a really popular girl until she dies in a car crash. She then relives the same day over and over. Reading this book you will be routing for Sam to get out of the time loop. My favourite characters in this book were Sam’s family because they are always there for her even though she is always shutting them out. Sam was my second favourite character because at the end she was so brave and selfless and had really changed from the person she was at the start of the book.


  3. I really enjoyed the book overall but hated the ending! It was such a bad ending to an amazing book, however, I would definitely recommend this book as it’s a really creative take on the typical high school book.


  4. WOW, this book is incredible. It is about a girl who dies in a car-crash, but she keeps living the same day over and over again, up to the point where she dies, so she can get the day ‘right’. This book hooked me from the very beginning and there are so many twists and turns that it kept me hooked until the very end. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is looking for a bit of action, romance, profound and beautiful narrations and sad and emotional stories. I rate this book 10/10 and highly recommend to bring tissues when reading this book.


  5. Before is such an amazing book with so many characteristics that help the book to be so enjoyable to read. I love this story and the way Lauren Oliver has written it is so beautiful. Samantha Kingston dies and relives the same day over and over, each day leaning new things about who she is. It is a beautifully written story and one you just can’t put down. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves an emotional story as this is definitely one of the best I have read.


  6. I loved the book Before I fall. I highly recommend it! Lauren Oliver has beautifully written a fictional story about a girl who died and relived her last day over and over. After many times of reliving her last day, Samantha Kingston finds herself to become a better person and she realizes who is really important to her. She experienced some days that were better than others and found herself better at the end of it all. I highly recommend this for anyone as I found it utterly addictive, struggling to put the book down.


  7. An incredibly beautiful, thought provoking book that I couldn’t put down until I finished it. I loved it! It was amazing!

    It starts when Sam dies in a tragic car crash coming home from a party. Then she wakes up the morning that she died. The first time this happened, and replayed the day, I hated Sam. I hated her friends, hated everything they did. They were awful to everyone! I loved it how, throughout the book, Sam slowly changes her ways and becomes a thoughtful admirable character. Her friends were alright, though I wished that they’d had a chance at redemption, like Sam did. This book was so deep with many themes that relate to everyone, such as, if you did die tomorrow, what would you do? What would you change?

    I rate this book 10/10 and for 12+! I seriously loved it and thought it was amazing!

    This is such a sad book! I was addicted to this book and i couldn’t put it down! I think its so sad the way she died but its also good that she had to live that day over until she got it right. I didn’t really like the way she acted before she died but i guess thats why she had to relive it until she changed. Its a sad but very good book. i would definitely recommend this book


  9. I ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ ‘BEFORE I FALL’. It was such an amazing story. It’s about a girl who was killed in a car crash. But then she wakes up in her own bed on the morning of the car accident. She is then forced to live that day over and over again until she can get it right. I was hooked and always eager to find out what happens next. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone that is into sad and emotional stories.
