Before I Fall - Lauren Oliver So many times I had to read the words over again because they were just so lovely. Lauren Oliver is truly a talented writer. I genuinely appreciate that in a time when any poorly hashed together formulaic vampire/zombie/dystopic love triangle novel becomes a huge sensation, and the writing in those is generally underwhelming, and forces me to simply stop reading.

What I'm trying to say is that beautiful and interesting writing is under-appreciated these days, and kind of hard to find, and that this book makes me glad that I read books, and should inspire love for reading in just about anyone.
