If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Sorry again for the lack of posts guys! Today's book is If I Stay by Gayle Forman! The description of this book is:

Choices. Seventeen-year-old Mia is faced with some tough ones: Stay true to her first love— music—even if it means losing her boyfriend and leaving her family and friends behind? Then one February morning Mia goes for a drive with her family, and in an instant, everything changes. Suddenly, all the choices are gone, except one. And it’s the only one that matters.

I could not put this book down. It's such a great book! It's heartbreaking but wonderful at the same time! I really loved the whole music theme of this book as well. Mia's boyfriend is such a cool guy, you'll love him immediately! This story is so sad but I couldn't put it down till I finished it and it ended up being a really beautiful story. This book isn't too much of an upbeat read but I still recommend it to anyone out there who loves YA! Gayle Forman is such a great writer, I hope to read more of her stuff! This book seems to be in every book store so I'm sure you guys can find it easily. Hope you enjoy :]


  1. Oh my gosh, when I saw Sarah Dessen this past month I seriously thought about buying that book. I will so go get it now! Can't wait! Gosh I'm such a night owl. With the time change it feels like an hour later than it is. For some reason it makes me even more awake. Happy reading!


  2. Yes it's very good! I know what you mean though, when I went and saw Sarah I went to Barnes and Noble and almost bought 4 books.. haha but yes I often feel like a night owl too so don't worry!

  3. Hey! I just finished this book and LOVED it! Not exactly a quick read, but I'm not a rushing type of person so we go hand in hand! OH have you seen that comment a girl named Henrie made yesterday? She posted that song and it literally made me cry! I think it was written from first hand experience... Just a feeling, girls these days...


  4. Glad you liked the book! And yes I just read the comment, it was a great song! :]


Comments anyone?
