I seem to be in a reading slump, I haven’t read a Wow! book for ages…
I Was Here by Gayle Forman
I Was Here by Gayle Forman. Admittedly I was swept up with the media hype and ARC reviews so my expectations of this book were sky high. Considering how much I loved the Just One Day series and enjoyed the If I Stay series, I really expected to fall hard for this book.
Disappointed and disillusioned… Despite the beautiful cover (I mean just look at it!), the book just did not do anything for me.

Cody and Meg were inseparable.
Two peas in a pod.
Until . . . they weren’t anymore.
When her best friend Meg drinks a bottle of industrial-strength cleaner alone in a motel room, Cody is understandably shocked and devastated. She and Meg shared everything—so how was there no warning? But when Cody travels to Meg’s college town to pack up the belongings left behind, she discovers that there’s a lot that Meg never told her. About her old roommates, the sort of people Cody never would have met in her dead-end small town in Washington. About Ben McAllister, the boy with a guitar and a sneer, who broke Meg’s heart. And about an encrypted computer file that Cody can’t open—until she does, and suddenly everything Cody thought she knew about her best friend’s death gets thrown into question. — Extract from Goodreads.com
