Waiting on Wednesday: Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

Before I Fall
My friend Lenore said this was like, the best book EVER, and she has pretty good taste so I now I really want to read it. It comes out in March which will be here before you know it in book days. And real days too, probably.

Here's the synopsis:
What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?

Samantha Kingston has it all—looks, popularity, the perfect boyfriend. Friday, February 12th should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it’s her last. The catch: Samantha still wakes up the next morning. In fact, she re-lives the last day of her life seven times, until she realizes that by making even the slightest changes, she may hold more power than she had ever imagined.


I guess it's like a Groundhog's Day thing, but guess what? I liked that movie. I also really liked that Groundhog's Dayesque episode of Supernatural. So I think that means this sort of plot line works for me.

Before I Fall comes out March 2nd from HarperCollins.

The cover is great! And the story sounds a little similar to the movie If Only, but good anyways.
