If you like Fall for Anything…

Because Fall for Anything is book that I would say is a grief-and-loss-YA type, here are some books I reccomend you:

Hold Still by Nina LaCour

Caitlin can’t understand why Ingrid ended her life. It seems imppossible; she was Ingrid, after all, her best friend, her partner in crime, the girl who got so smitten with Jayson… And then she found her journal. With that and Taylor Riley, maybe Caitlin could go back and be the girl she was without Ingrid. Or not.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

It was summer in her grandfather’s island and they were the liars. What’s better than that? And then what she remembered next: she was found nearby the beach, her head was hit and she suffered head trauma. She couldn’t be a normal teen in her school who didn’t have random blackouts. She emailed all the Liars, but none of them answered her…until one summer she came back to the island. And she began to remember the fire.

Saving June by Hannah Harrington

When June died in June, there were a lot of people she left. For starters, her sister, Harper, who had to deal with her depressed mom, and then Jake, the guy she tutored before he died. Together, those two got into a journey to cope with June’s death, and to fall in love.

Fall for Anything by Courtney Summers: A Review

image

“A smile and a laugh. These things feel wrong in their rightness.”

You can believe, you can trust, but you never know what you’re falling for.

When your best friend and your almost-catatonic mom are not really there as much as you want for you at the same time when the person you hate the most is staying at your house, and when you can’t really get over the suicide your dad committed, you take whatever answer people offer you. Even if it is from a stranger called Culler Evans who claims to be your dad’s student.

And that is exactly what Eddie Reeves is doing as the world all around her seem to just not get her. She wants to understand why her dad did it. And while her only best friend, Milo, is dating a Marilyn-Monroe-wannabe, she can lie to herself that there are answers.

She can lie to herself that her dad really left something for her to figure out…while there is none.

Cracked Up To Be by Courtney Summers: A Review

Letting herself slip away from everyone’s attention is what Parker almost succeeded in doing. From her ex, by trying to substitute herself with a ex-friend, from her parents, by trying to substitute herself with a dog.

Well, it seemed that everything was planned so well… but Jake, a new student in the school seemed to be able to see through her. She was the most popular girl, straight-A student, everything the best girl parents wanted. But now she’s none of those things.

Jake knew. He knew somehow that something was causing her to shut everyone out. Or rather, to make everyone shut her out. But he didn’t know why she was doing this.

It was clear that something was wrong.

But Parker couldn’t be wrong, right? She was the best girl. People, especially girls, usually only changed their attitude suddenly if something was wrong in their love life.

And no, nothing seemed wrong with her love life. She was not a victim of abduction, murder attempt, or rape.

Not exactly.

This book is just so easy to relate to what’s really happening around in real life, that sometimes I feel we’re really just going in through a true story. With the incredibly awesome writing style of Courtney Summers, I am drowned completely in this story.
