An Abundance of Time?

Three days ago I finished Lauren Oliver’s debut novel, Before I Fall. As I’ve said at my Tumblr, the book turned out to be a good read—it sounds like a mash up between Gossip Girl and Ground Hog, with a little bit of The Lovely Bones in it. Something in Oliver’s writing make it sound more refreshing and original, though. I’ll say more in my review, which I will post later. :)

Without further ado, here’s one of my favorite quotes from the book:

Before I Fall (Hour Glass)
“My point is: maybe you can afford to wait. Maybe for you there’s a tomorrow. Maybe for you there’s one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or ten, so much you can bathe in it, roll around in it, let it slide like coins through your fingers. So much time you can waste it. But for some of us, there’s only today And the truth is, you never really know.”
