    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...

    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...

    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 ARC by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Ireland. I fell in love with Ireland as soon as they defeated Bulgaria in the Quidditch World Cup final of 1994. So I really, really want to visit Ireland. Right now. So when I read the synopsis I was like: yasss, girl. But oh boy was I wrong.➵ PLOTClementine Haas wakes up with amnesia. She’s in a hospital and has no clue where she is, or who she is. All her...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    ***ARC provided by Skyscape and Two Lions publishers in exchange for an honest review.***Clementine Hass is the sole survivor of a plane crash which has left her with amnesia. Waking up in a hospital she has no idea who she is, or where she is from. This is the perfect depiction of finding out who you are without the distracting influences of your past.

    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.

    ** 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...

    Well, this was... something.This is the story of Clementine Haas and how she was reborn. She wakes up in a hospital in Ireland, with no idea of who she is and how she got there. They say she survived an plane crash, that she's a miracle, but how can that be, when she's completely lost? It feels more like a nightmare to her. She can't remember anything, not her dad, who's on his way to get her back home, not her name, nothing. But the sound of goi...

    This review (and many others) can be found at Lost in My Library. I received an eARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I really wanted to like this one. There were so many things in it that I really should have loved, but it was rare that I found myself feeling anything other than indifference. I also had a few problems with the book that made it go from "maybe I'm just reading this at the wrong time" ...

    A book about new beginnings, The Upside of Falling Down is Clementine's story about having to move on and live with uncertainty. She is the sole survivor a plane crash, but she also has retrograde amnesia - so when she wakes up in the hospital, she is basically a stranger to herself. Because returning back to a life she knows nothing about seems overwhelming, she runs away with a stranger to his house in a small village, so that she can try to re...

After Clementine Haas is involved in a plane crash, she wakes up in an Irish hospital suffering from complete amnesia. I loved reading about Clementine (aka Jane) and her struggle not only to remember her past through fragmented flashbacks, but also find some sort of normalcy in her new reality. Throughout C...

    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...
