    THERE WILL BE SOME SMALL SPOILERS IN THIS REVIEWWhen I saw this book on Netgalley to request I thought it looked like a super cute, adorable, quick read and that was exactly what it was! 😊It’s all about Clemetine who is our main character, she is the only survivor in a plane crash and wakes up in hospital with amnesia. It follows her as she pretty much hightails it out of hospital with a stranger so she doesn’t have to face her forgotten l...

    "What is the point of cheating death if a life doesn't exist when you wake up?" I loved Rebekah Crane's The Odds of Loving Grover Cleveland, so it's no surprise that I enjoyed this one just as much. Rebekah has such a knack for making you fall in love with even the most unconventional of characters. Her ability to mix witty banter with sensitive topics gives you that heartwarming feeling in the end. In the Upside of Falling Down we are introduced...

    RATING: 3.5/5*Thanks NetGalley for allowing me to read and review this*This is a story about new beginnings. Clementine/Jane is a young girl trying to figure out who she is after going through a traumatic event. Deep down she remains the same girl but some things have changed. She has the opportunity to start over and be someone else. I enjoyed this book, the plot is original and I appreciate that in YA. There is some character development by the...

    2.5 starsI received a free eARC copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewI was raised in the Buckeye state, so whenever I hear about a book that takes place in Ohio, or where the main characters are from Ohio, I'm all over it. Cause let's be real here, hardly any books take place in Ohio. There's really nothing there, and it's pretty boring. I mean, Cedar Point is awesome, and there's the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland and the...

    Trigger warnings for hospitalisation, mental illness, pregnancy/childbirth and death. The Upside of Falling Down had a promising premise but it didn’t deliver the story I expected. I was all here for magical realism and Ireland but the uncomfortable romance that replaced it was not my cup of tea. Maybe if miscommunication and lying were not one of my biggest turnoffs in romance, it wouldn’t have been so bad. I just struggle to see how people ...

    (guess who's behind on the reviews they were supposed to write, yet again)As it turns out, all one needs to do to get me interested in a book is mention Ireland somewhere in the summary.Actual rating: 3.5This is a solid book in my favorite genre, it's no surprise that I enjoyed it. It's well thought out and well executed. I liked the characters best of all, and the plot was very intriguing. The only thing that doesn't sit well with me is the endi...

    I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review, ok ahora continuemos. Este libro estaba teniendo un menor rating hasta el último 10%, en el que mejoró bastante. Así que empecemos con las cosas buenas:- La historia comienza de una forma muy interesante, se estrella un avión y Clementine es la única sobreviviente. Plot twist: ella pierde la memoria. De esta manera sabemos que no es una historia aburrida,...

    Rating: 4.5 StarsI was lucky to stumble upon Crane's last book, The Odds of Loving Grover Cleveland, last year, and enjoyed it immensely. Therefore, when I saw The Upside of Falling Down, I knew right away, that I had to read it, and you know what? It was utterly delightful!"It's the upside of falling down," Kieran says. "It's why you jump in the first place...for that moment."•Pro: The whole theme of the book is fabulous! It's about new beginn...

    I received a free eARC copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review When I saw this book on Netgalley I thought the cover was really cute. This book turned out to be such a cute fun read. I flew through it in just two sittings, I couldn't put it down. The book is set in ireland which gave this story bonus points from me. I love reading about foreign countries, there not a setting used as often as it should be.The main character Clementine...

    I had no idea what to expect going into this one (I didn't even read the synopsis) and boy was I pleasantly surprised. If you're looking for a fantastic contemporary to get you out of a reading rut, this book is just the thing you need! "The memories mean nothing to me if I can't recall them. Except for the small fact that... they mean everything. No matter what people want to believe, life is locked in the past. It's all we are -- a timeline of ...

    Персонажи меня, мягко говоря, здесь не порадовали. Поступков главной героини я понять не могла вообще, а уж как жестоко она поступила с любящим отцом, который и так чуть с ума ни сошел, когда его дочь попала в авиакатастрофу, в которой погибли все, к...

    The Upside of Falling Down by Rebekah Crane was such a cute contemporary! Might I also mention that it takes place in Ireland? I mean, how can you beat that? Thank you NetGalley for the free ebook copy.

    actual rating: 4.5 I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I’ll never be able to fathom the feeling of waking up without memory of your past. Not a single bit of my childhood, no memories of my life, no memories of my family. That’s horrifying and extremely unnerving. It's precisely what had happened to Clementine.I really liked Clementine. After surviving a horrible plane crash, she wakes up not...

    A positively epic read. I was sucked into these pages and I fell hard for these characters. Clementine is so inspiring. Her journey to move past her tragedy and her great heart will warm your insides. She’s a survivor, dealing with unfathomable circumstances. All of these amazing people will keep you vested and addicted to these pages. I’m a hard core Rebekah fan and this solidifies my love for her work. These words will inspire you and help ...

    MY RATING: 5/5 STARSI was given a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review. This book is my second 5/5 star read of 2018. It was so well written, it made me cry for so long during the last couple of hundred pages. The Upside of Falling Down taught me that life was beautiful no matter the circumstances. Your family and friends that surround you and their relationship they have with you are strong and unbreakable. They are they there to...

    I don't know, this book just fell flat for me. When I saw this at Netgalley, I thought it will be a quick and fun (maybe cute?) read but I really struggled continuing with this. I just can't connect with Clementine and Kieran, or any character for that matter. The story started out great but ended absurdly.

    3.5 starsI loved where this book took place. It has been a wish of mine for some time to visit Ireland. This story was emotional as "Jane" was on a path to discover herself. It had a mild twist to the romance. Altogether it made for a good read.

    4.5 stars!Clementine is the sole survivor of a plane crash in Ireland. She has amnesia and can't stand the idea of going back to a life she doesn't remember, so she runs away from the hospital with the help of Keiran, who she met in the hospital courtyard. Keiran reluctantly agrees to take "Jane" (the name Clementine creates) to his summer cottage in a small seaside town - the perfect place for Jane to hide from the media and her dad who are look...

    ** I received a free eARC copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.**I loved the premise of this book. Lone survivor in a plane crash. Amnesia in a foreign country. Re-discovering who you are while in Ireland. Cute love interest. I read this book in 2 sittings because I just could put it down. I loved all the characters, but Clive was my favorite! I just really wish it was a TAD bit longer so that things didn’t have to get tied up s...

    I absolutely loved this book and it was the emotional, fun read that I needed after a very stressful week of exams. The writing was like reading poetry that melted my heart and I loved all the characters so much. Clive, Stephen, Siobhan, Kieran, and Clementine were so well developed and the overall message of the story was memorable. Why worry about the past when you can try and live in the present? This was a satisfying novel that I flew through...

    Digital ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest reviewThis book got me in with the promise of Ireland and an amnesic plane crash survivor. The fact that this amnesic then hightails it out of the hospital instead of facing her forgotten life and the media flurry surrounding a lone plane crash survivor only makes it even more appealing. It's a pretty solid premise. I think that premise remained strong throughout the book. I mean that it...
