Norma’s Favourite Book of the Week / December 5, 2016

Before I FallBefore I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Norma’s rating: 5 of 5 stars

Date read:  November 26 – 29, 2016

5 well deserved stars! BEFORE I FALL was an absolutely unexpected really good read! I was totally blown away with the way LAUREN OLIVER delivered this story which was moving, thoughtful, and interesting. It was an honest and believable portrayal of teenagers lives which was executed with a very important message.

I didn’t know what to expect when I picked this one up, the title and the cover is what actually pulled me in. This book grabs your attention slowly and then while the story progresses and your emotions are heightened it is really hard to put down.

The story was told in the voice of a teenager, Samantha (Sam) who for the most part wasn’t a personable main character but that didn’t take away from how engrossed I was with the storyline. I thought I knew how this story was going to end, but I didn’t. I could see how Samantha’s values and morals were changing everyday as the week passes.

This novel will not be easily forgotten!

It was a steady-paced, quick, and easy to follow along read. Would recommend!!

I love to make different types of lists.  One being “my favourite books list”.  I thought we would do a favourite book that we have read and enjoyed from the past week.  On every Monday Norma and I will post our favourite book of the week.  We would love for anyone reading to post their favourite in the comment section.  I think some of the best books are the ones that are also enjoyed by someone else.
