Waiting On Wednesday (32) Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver

This has been my most anticipated read since I first heard about its' sale to HarperCollins in May 2008. Not only does it have a cool do-over/groundhog day meets the afterlife premise, it is also represented by super agent Stephen Barbara who has excellent taste. It doesn't come out until sometime in Spring 2010, but it has a cover, so I have to feature it!


What if you had only one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life?

Samantha Kingston has it all—looks, popularity, the perfect boyfriend. Friday, February 12th should be just another day in her charmed life. Instead, it’s her last. The catch: Samantha still wakes up the next morning. In fact, she re-lives the last day of her life seven times, until she realizes that by making even the slightest changes, she may hold more power than she had ever imagined.

Lauren also has a very interesting post up about her inspiration for BEFORE I FALL.

I will read this the very moment I get my hands on it.
