Confessions of a Pinay Bookaholic

I'm Beatrice, a Filipina who reads books in random genres.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Before I Fall - Lauren Oliver

I didn't have a chance to review this book last year because I don't know what rating will I give. First, I gave it 3 - stars and now, 1- star rating.

I was able to save my thoughts on my diary of what I think about this book. I'm hesitant to post it and most people I know love this book so much. So here goes my explanation:

Don't get me wrong, I love Lauren Oliver particularly the Delirium trilogy but this book isn't for me. It is boring and I don't like redundancy of scenes.

As you all know, the scenes repeated (for 7 times.) before the accident/her death. It is expected she'll die at the end and the twist is, those repetitive days she will try things for redemption for all her wrong doings. Realization sets in.

I hate Samantha Kingston . I'm sure she's FULLY AWARE that her friends' are bullies, yet she tolerates it and joins the club but deep inside she doesn't want to bully Juliet. Her choices suckedBIG TIME. Why correct things too late when you could have done it earlier? Where the hell is your judgment? It's just too late to apologize. I hate to say this, a part of me thinks she deserved it. Sounds cruel but payback is a bitch.

I am disappointed and frustrated on this book. I'm so glad I finished it.
