    Reading through Samantha's last day over and over again, it's heartbreaking how Samantha was struggling through the last day of her life. I really love how the author shaped the character, Samantha has everything any high school girl wanted, she looks beautiful, she's popular, she has a perfect boyfriend that everyone admired. However, on a Friday, February 12th, the last day of her life. Samantha is my favorite character, throughout the story, she had relived for seven times, she started to realize what she had done wrong, and she was given the chance to right the wrong and to improve herself and be a better person, thinking not only herself also the people around her. The author put a lot of thought into this novel, while reader were reading, they can easily relate the story, and follow the character's emotion, laugh when Samantha is laughing, cry and Samantha is crying. I highly recommended this book to teenage girls or boys, people who studying in high school, and who love romance.

    Reading the last day of Samantha's life has been a heartbreaking and sad journey for me. This story makes me laugh and teary at the same time. I really love how the author shaped the character Samantha, she has everything a high school girl ever wanted, she looks beautiful, she is popular, and she has a perfect boyfriend that every girl admired. However, on a Friday of February 12th, everything changed, this day turned out to be the last day of her life. I think Samantha is the best character created, at the beginning of the story, she was a self-centered girl and the only thing she ever cared about was herself. However, as she relived the Friday for exactly 7 times, she started to realize that not everything revolves around her. She was given the second chance to right the wrong that she had done. By fixing her mistakes, she became a better person. Eventually, she cared not only about herself, but also the people around her. The author put a lot of thoughts and efforts into the novel, readers could easily relate to the story, and follow the character's emotion. The readers would laugh when Samantha was laughing, and cry when she was crying. I highly recommend this book to teenage boys and girls, high school students who love reading romance.

    Paper Towns is an awesome and innovative novel that written by John Green. After reading The Fault in our Stars and Looking for Alaska, I know that I should continued reading John Green's collection. And Paper Towns turns out to be a really unique and special story and I enjoy reading it a lot. I really love the character, they make me feel like they are actually alive, and thing that they had been through can actually happen in our real life as well. I think the author did a really good job explaining the character's feeling and action, so that the reader could follow along and picture the scene while the reader is reading. The author put a lot of thought into this story by adding quotes, metaphors, and different meaningful phases into his own writing. I recommend this book to the one who love John Green's collection and who love adventure and finding who they truly are.

    After reading the If I Stay series, written by Gayle Forman, I knew that I should continue reading her book, and I chose this one, Just One Day. I read this book during my winter vacation, and it makes me want to travel with them as well. They make me believe that everything can actually happen in just one day, and make me believe that there are more possibilities in life. The romance between Allyson and Willem is lovely. I love how the character was developed, Allyson is a girl who had everything planned, and ordered, unlike Willem, who is free, following his heart, nothing is planned, and he goes to the place wherever and whenever he wanted to go. And In just one day, Allyson and Willem traveled to Paris, in 24 hours, this trip is going to change Allyson's life forever. While reading this book, you could actually picture the scenes in the story, the place that they had visited, challenges that they had overcame, and what Allyson was thinking the whole time in this 24 hours. I would recommend this book to the person who loves traveling as well as who love romance, you feel love, heartbreaking, bittersweet all at the same time.

    This is the sequel to the book, If I Stay, which is one of my favorite books, and I have been looking forward to reading Where She Went ever since I finished reading the first one and it was just as incredible. If I Stay was written from Mia’s point of view and it was mostly about Mia struggling to make the decisions between staying alive or passing away, leaving the world behind, while Where She Went was written from Adam’s point of view, and it took place three years after the crash and Mia’s recovery and three years since Mia broke up with Adam. In this book, we get to experience Adam’s journey along the way, and somehow I can sympathize with him and understand his pain, despair and sadness. I love how he expressed his emotion, it was very relatable, because we all long for someone out of reach sometimes and I love how the story developed and how it ended and we finally had closure for Adam and Mia. Where She Went was a mixture of heart-breaking, anger, and excitement all at the same time. This story is recommended for teens that was in love with music, pure love at first sight. Gayle Forman is a fantastic author, I will continue reading her book, and collect all her series.
