Friday 56: Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Happy Friday everybody!!

  • Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
  • Turn to page 56.
  • Find the fifth sentence.
  • Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of Storytime with Tonya and Friends.
  • Post a link along with your post back to Storytime with Tonya and Friends.
  • Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Lindsay's kind of music-obsessed, so she makes a playlist for the ride to Kent's house, even though he lives only a few miles away. We listen to Dr. Dre and Tupac, and then we blast "Baby Got Back" and all sing along.

This was the nearest book to me because I just pulled it out of its package and was adding it to my LibraryThing account. I hope to get to read it soon. I have a couple of books I need to read before it though (Hex Hall and Forget-Her-Nots).

What was closest to you today?

  7. The line sounds typically teen...let me guess YA? :)

    Are you going to post a review of this book? The cover does not look very attractive enough for me to buy to my fantasy buff eyes... It would be good to get a few opinions before even thinking of buying it.

    My F56:
