Feature & Follow #46


Alison Can Read Feature & Follow

This is a weekly blog hop hosted by the wonderful Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. Today's question is:

Q: Give us a sneak! What are you reading? Tell us about a fun or fail scene in your current read.


Before I FallRight now, I'm reading Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. I feel like I've been reading this book for months because of how long the story is (somewhat). And I can't really stand the main character's personality. I find her so...stupid, because she keeps doing stupid and pointless things over and over, even after realizing that she's getting a do-over, so to speak. 

I think a fun scene would be her hiding from a teacher but ending up finding out that he's dating another school official (who no one considered dating material lol). That was interesting. A failed scene would be every single time she gets the do-over and does nothing of substance. 

But regardless of this girl and her craziness, I love the story and I think her character is actually comparable to a lot of teens in today's society.

How about you?

  1. I tried to read this book because an acquaintance of mine loved it, but I just could't finish it. I had problems with the main character too.

  2. I haven't read this one, but I'm not so sure I'd like it either... When people make the same mistakes over and over like in The Groundhog Day it just upsets me :(

    Thanks for stopping by my FF post earlier. Have a wonderful weekend!

  4. I haven't read that one yet, and I don't think I want to. :( I've read the first two books in her Delirium trilogy which were both okay. Anyway, happy reading. Followed via GFC :)

  7. My sister enjoyed this one; and I do want to read it at some point. I hear the MC is annoying for awhile, but I suppose it will be one of those stories where the character grows a lot, and that's nice. Hope you finish it soon!

  12. I have definitely heard of this book and heard quite positive reviews about it. I know her of course from Delirium, which I absolutely loved, so I should definitely give her other books a try :)

  14. Hopping through. I loved this book. Part of what I liked is how much the MC changes over the course of the book. So hopefully you'll end up liking her more.

  16. I adored this book really. I couldn't stand the character Samantha (that is her name ain't it?.....), but towards the end it just gets so...... wow. I loved this book and like you mentioned totally comparable with today's youth.

    Thanks for stopping by my FF. :D
