Book Review: Before I Die

Leave a comment

First Impressions

I’m not actually entirely sure why I picked this up, but it seemed very interesting: a sixteen-year-old girl with a bucket list to finish in only a few months. Hence the title, Before I Die. (This book is by Jenny Downham, by the way. Read it.)

What I Liked

The style it was written in was very nice and easy to read – not saying that I can’t read hard-to-read books, but suffice to say that it’s just easier when I don’t get pulled out of the world so easily – and at the end of this, I was crying. Kind of.

What I Didn’t Like

The fact that just a few hundred words could be spread out across something like twenty pages was a bit annoying towards the end. I know why she did it, for emphasis on how hard it was getting for Tessa, but it still bugged me.

Rating: 4/5 stars
