TBR Tuesday: If I Stay
I have a lot of books I've bought or received in a fury of excitement, only to have them languish on the shelves. This is one of those books.
If I Stay (If I Stay, #1)
by Gayle Forman
In a single moment, everything changes. Seventeen-year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall riding along the snow-wet Oregon road with her family. Then, in a blink, she finds herself watching as her own damaged body is taken from the wreck... A sophisticated, layered, and heartachingly beautiful story about the power of family and friends, the choices we all make—and the ultimate choice Mia commands.
My copy looks like the one above, and I loved it when it came out, but now I think I prefer the new one --->
What do you guys think? Kinda haunting, right?
Anyway, need to read this sometime. Had it for awhile (got it from an awesome person. She knows who she is ;p), but haven't had a chance. And it's so short, I'm sure I'd read it quickly. I think I'm afraid it won't live up to the hype, and I want it to live up.
So, what do you guys think? Anyone read this? What's on your tbr pile?
