Book Reviews for “If I Stay” and “Where She Went” by Gayle Forman

Hello Everyone! I hope all is well with you. I’ve been on vacation this week with the family and I must say it has been cold the last few days. So when I can’t enjoy the sun I like to read. And I must say I’ve read two awesome books this week. I read both of them in one day…they were that good.

The first one is titled, “If I Stay” by Gayle Forman. I must say this book rocked. The emotion and character development blew me away. I loved it. I identified with the main character Mia and I fell in love with her and her friends and family. All the characters were very real to me.

This is an incredibly sad story though. Make sure you have a box of tissue handy.

 The second book I read is the sequel to “If I stay.” It’s titled, “Where she went.” I loved this book even more than the first one. I got to know Mia’s boyfriend Adam in this story.  I must say I loved Adam. He was actually so strong and his love for Mia was unwavering. It’s one of those “I just can’t put down” books. It’s an emotional read so you’ll need another box of tissue for this one too, but this one has a happy ending.

I will definitely be reading more of Gayle Forman’s books.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my blog. If you’ve got a book you’d recommend please do so by leaving the title in the comments. I’m trying to get back into the habit of reading. I’ve been writing so much lately that I haven’t had time to read.  I’m trying to change that.  🙂
