Ok so the last post was a bit rushed and I'm sorry... I had to go. Anyway.
So here it is: I read If I Stay and Where She Went yesterday and at the end... yeah. I came a bit obssessed trying to learn what you usually do when you learn one of your favourite books are being turned into a movie: you learn all the actors' names, their lives, behind the scenes' secrets, etc. So I tried to do that. Sort of failed, and ended up scrolling on Tumblr through Malec stories (Magnus x Alec, The Mortal Instruments). Anyway .
So I'm going to post the same thing I posted on Tumblr, if that doesn't bother you.
So if you haven’t read them (they're sequels, don't try to read Where She Went first, you'll be spoiled), go type ‘If I stay’ and you’ll find the synopsis, I think it has been repeated enough times already.
If you haven’t read them, and don’t know if you should read them: DO!! I mean, there’s a movie coming out August 22. It’s Gayle Forman. It’s really good.
So if you HAVE read them.
If I stay: I loved all those flashback scenes, AND GOD I SHIP MIA AND ADAM SO HARD !!!!! That concert scene… GOD!!! I did get sometimes confused but in general I loved. I don’t say that I REALLY loved, but I didn’t. I mean, I have nothing against it, it did make me cry because it was touching and cute and GOD THAT SHIP!! But seriously… Contemporaries aren’t my favourite type of books, and I usually have problems getting into those… (Tho I loved Just One Day and Just One Year….). I think I’d give it 85%. Maybe 90% ^^ Because I didn’t get THAT impressed. I think it’s that I had the trailer in my head and it have me too high expectations and that was bad.
Where she went: I loved that one. I loved how Adam felt so real, how he grieved. I loved how he was broken (I kept thinking of like Katniss in Mockingjay, or Magnus in COHF and when he said I don’t remember in which book something about broken and beautiful people). I loved their reunion, and when he went to her concert. That was perfect. Still shipping them so hard !!! I’d give it a 90%.
Btw I’m really hard on books. The TFIOS quote about saving her ten is so real for me. I mean… It’s really hard for me to give a really good mark because of the ‘what if sow thing is better than this one’.
Anyway, thanks for readingP.S. NOW I'M IN FOUR (VERONICA ROTH'S NOVELLAS OF DIVERGENT, POV FOUR) GAAAAAH SO GOOD
