If I Stay - Gayle Forman

Why didn't anyone tell me If I Stay was so booooooooring? Girl is in car accident, girl's spirit hovers above girl's comatose body, girl thinks about run-of-the-mill family life and relationship with boyfriend (he's a rocker! She's into cello! His band is making it big, she got accepted into Julliard! WHATEVER WILL THEY DO!) and tries to decide if she will return to said comatose body.


The book is, like, 117 pages, which is probably why nothing happens. I wanted Mia to float around town for a few weeks, see what life would be like for everyone without her, It's A Wonderful Life-style.


With more violent lovemaking.

There's a SEQUEL to this? I can't even...Mia and Adam, having been estranged, now reunited in New York for 'one life-changing night.' AWESOME.


(Not awesome. Boring.)

Five caterpillars for not being a hopeless train wreck but not really being much of anything else, either.

Oh, Raych, I just love reading your reviews, even if we don't share the same opinion. Maybe especially when we don't share the same opinion.

It is as I feared! Run away! Run away!

(Thank you for sparing me from reading this myself.)

OK I hate to be the dumbass that loved these two books, but there you go. I guess maybe I am easily entertained? I'm pretty excited about the movie...
