If I Stay Official Trailer

"Just listen", Adam says with a voice that sounds like shrapnel. I open my eyes wide now. I sit up as much as I can. And I listen.



"Stay", he says. 

Excited to see this movie. :) Chloe is awesome :D <3 August 22. I already noted that. :)

If I Stay, Gayle Forman : ★★★★ 

Choices. Seventeen-year-old Mia is faced with some tough ones: Stay true to her first love—music—even if it means losing her boyfriend and leaving her family and friends behind? Then one February morning Mia goes for a drive with her family, and in an instant, everything changes. Suddenly, all the choices are gone, except one. And it’s the only one that matters. If I Stay is a heartachingly beautiful book about the power of love, the true meaning of family, and the choices we all make. (source: Goodreads)

“ If I stay. If I live. It's up to me. ” - Mia

I already saw this on the bookstores because its beautiful cover caught my attention. That time, I was busy reading the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy so I decided not to buy but until I saw good reviews about it. And just last Friday, I started reading and done reading it yesterday. It was heartbreaking to tell you honestly. It made me cry. I think everyone will cry if it talks about between life and death. Mia has an ordinary life. Mia with her mom, dad and younger brother Teddy went out to go to the city on snow day and their car crashed and it immediately killed her parents & teddy. But Mia is the only one survived but in critical & grave condition. And the journey of Mia’s spirit started. Mia looked back and reminisce her fond relationship with her rock star boyfriend Adam. Despite of their music genre differences they click and fell in love to each other. Mia need to decide if she stays or if she let go. Its all up to her. Towards the end, all the realization of Mia and Adam’s words to Mia is really made me into tears. I keep holding back but I can’t. It was profoundly moving and captivating. I totally recommend this book. I just started reading its continuation, Where She Went. 

Note: If you want a e-book copy of the If I Stay series , just send me a fan mail. Happy Reading. :”>

Drowning Instinct, Ilsa J. Bick : ★★★✰ 

" In my experience, the truly evil are few and good people, with the very best of intentions, often make very bad decisions and get in way over their heads before they know it. People drown, quietly, before our eyes, all the time." - Ilsa J. Bick (Author, Drowning Instinct)

This book is insanely beautiful. Terrifying & intense. After reading, i still figuring out what I have read. The forbidden relationship of Jenna, a 16 years old student and Mitch Anderson, chemistry teacher of Jenna is different from other teacher and student love story. The book talks about how two broken people found each other and heal themselves by one another. This is a kind of book you want to finish up to its last page. Every chapters are captivating. :)

I recommend to read this book. Happy reading. :)
