    Courtney Summers is one of the best young adult voices there is Fall for Anything is only my second novel by her the first being All the Rage and already I ve become quite addicted to her writing applauds author


    Aj the Ravenous Reader

    Courtney Summers undoubtedly has raw talent in perfectly creating broken characters who are believable You can touch them, you can feel them and there s no other recourse but to embrace them for who they are.She also has a gift in discussing sensitive matters in a very intensely provocative and original manner The use of photographs in the story is very striking It provided it deeper meaning This is the story of a 17 year old girl named Eddie Reeves whose father was once a very kind and famous p [...]

    3 Stars Fall for Anything takes an honest and heartbreaking look into the aftermath of a loved one s suicide, and vividly explores the self blame and confusion that inevitably lingers While I didn t find this story as edgy or intense as some of Summers others, its messages were every bit as impactful The plot itself moves at a slower pace and, although some mystery is incorporated, is a fairly steady, straightforward ride But what stood out most for me was the genuine nature of each character, w [...]

    I can t imagine why Courtney Summers novels aren t widely read, I guess it might have something to do with Cracked Up to Be and Some Girls Are being marketed as your typical high school clique y boy obsessed novels Their covers suggest something you d find in every American high school movie and even the quote from the School Library Journal about Some Girls Are is Fans of the film Mean Girls will enjoy this tale of redemption and forgiveness.Well, let me tell you this Courtney Summers books ar [...]

    I read in a book once you can t drown yourself Your body will fight to survive, whether you want to or not.But I don t think it s the same when you jump.I ve never been the fan of mystery novels, even contemporary ones, which is why it s surprising I finished this one But now, I have to thank Summers since I am now interested in mystery novels which are either adult or YA books This was surprisingly good, and it was even better than good, but Summers decided to be evil just like many other othe [...]

    4 Stars Fall for Anything was an interesting, honest and raw realistic young adult novel and I have to say I really enjoyed it Well, enjoyed it s not the right word I think, since the story was so heartbreaking and emotional and its message was quite powerful, but anywayI m a romance reader 95% of the time, I read romance novels, but once in a while I love to read a good realistic fiction young adult novel Fall for Anything was my second book by this author and like the first one it was a charac [...]

    Read my girl Maggie s review because it s perfect and sums up my thoughts eloquently I swear to god, reading a courtney summers book always leaves me so confused I need an eternity to think about and process this buddy read with some dude


    Chelsea ❤Peril Please❤

    We re all lost in different ways, so how do we even help each other find our way out We won t We can t We ll just stay lost forever.Wow Just all the feels All the feels in the world It s no secret I adore this author and would face a throw down in the Hunger Games to get another of her books in my hands, but I don t think I could possibly portray just how deeply her books touch me It s not because I have all these dark inner thoughts and need a book like this to feel like someone is actually rea [...]

    what are emotions i forgot how to feel also view spoiler culler is trash hide spoiler book 2 in the saunta and maymay s Courtney Summers Marathon Binge Saga i remember like 2 things about this book from my first read but i thoroughly remember the hole it left in my being so that s always great.

    I don t know what to think about this book exactly I get that Eddie is looking for answers, hell, I d be looking too, but I think her brain died on the same day as her dad.The minute that Culler guy came into the picture I backed away from my book and thought WOW, what a freak At first it seemed like he was making it all up, since Eddie didn t know he was her dad s student, but at least that part of his story was the truth That s pretty much where it ended though What he did was completely messe [...]


    Neil (or bleed)

    I hope he s found peace, wherever he is I hope I do too, wherever I end up Fall for Anything is a sad, depressing novel about suicide, grieving and finding answers You might say this book is just another novel about grief and I think I can agree with that If I would compare it with I Was Here by Gayle Forman, I think the latter kinda worked for me better since I ve got hooked with I Was Here even the romance was really unnecessary compared to this book that I felt detached with the main characte [...]

    Jesus, this is a hard book to rate I could probably justify any star rating I choose to give it In many ways, it was like a drive by smack in the face Shocking, painful, and it leaves you feeling bewildered, while at the same time forcing you to acknowledge your own being.This is quite a powerful book about loss and the search for answers to impossible questions At times it was quite uncomfortable to read, for it was filled with such raw emotion and honesty, but at the same time, it was too inte [...]

    Rating Clarification 3.5 StarsFall for Anything is one of those few stories that kept me up all night until I finished the book because I just had to see how this car crash would end It s by no means a feel good escapist book It s about parental suicide and learning how to cope with the aftermath of unanswered questions and a quest for the truth.Spoilerish comments coming, but if you haven t read the book, I don t think they ll make much sense When Eddie stumbles across Culler at the warehouse w [...]

    It has taken me forever to write this reviewFall For Anything made me cry, not just once but several times It was such a fiercely emotional read I don t think enjoy is the right word to describe how I feel but rather it was a book that affected me, that got under my skin, that I don t think I will forget.Courtney Summers writing is powerful It is just full of emotion It deals with suicide in such an honest and real way I can say that as a person who has been closely affected by suicide I could r [...]

    See reviews at YA Midnight Reads I m always leaving, but I never have anywhere to go I fall for anything Courtney Summers writes And this one was no exception.Eddie Reeves father, a legendary photographer, commits suicide but no one knows exactly why And Eddie wants to know She wants to know why he left her Why he left her mother Why he left the world where he was such a respected photographer When Eddie begins to believe that she ll never find out the reason she meets Culler Evans Ex student o [...]

    This book falls somewhere between 3 and 4 stars for me Eddie Reeves is lost since her father s suicide A once famous photographer, her father leaves basically no clues behind to indicate his motivations Her mother is basically nonfunctioning after his death so her mother s best friend moves in to attempt to keep things in order Eddie s own best friend, Milo, won t tell her some of the details about the night her father died When she meets a mysterious former student of her father s who is simila [...]

    Courtney Summers is the Queen of Mean she holds hold court over characters that readers love to hate and just plain love Readers are well aware that Summers can write a compelling mean girl, but, with FALL FOR ANYTHING, she shows us that she can write vulnerable and broken with just as much skill.I quickly realized that Eddie wasn t anything like Summers previous two main characters, Parker and Regina Eddie has never dated the most popular guy in school, she doesn t bully, and, most notably, she [...]

    Fall for Anything was my second Courtney Summers novel, and while I did enjoy like I think enjoy is probably the wrong word for a Summers book I find it hard to enjoy them, because they are so raw and full of hurt But I did like reading it, if that makes sense it a bit than Some Girls Are, I still can t rate it higher than three and a half stars Summers books are very powerful and engaging, but also very depressing and dark If you are looking for happy endings in the classical happy ending sens [...]


    Lily

    Speechless That s what I was after finishing this novel Apparently it s true what they say about stumbling upon something amazing when you least expect it in this case Fall for Anything.I honestly didn t think I would ever discover a novel again that would compare to Saving June in the way that it managed suck me in and take me to another place entirely, and make me feel so many different emotions in the best and worst way I don t get emotional too easily when reading, but this novel made me she [...]

    This book will make you feel It s punches are lighter though They creep up and build up momentum only to catch you by surprise at unexpected moments So much so, that you will struggle throughout, but you will cope, and then you will reach the end only to find yourself slightly trembling, with this ache y hollow feeling and wet eyes that you had not anticipated And that is when you will realise the gorgeousness that is this book.Our protagonist Eddie is lost And her mother is as broken as one can [...]


    Jessica

    Rating clarification 3.5 starsFall for Anything is a pretty dark book and I was constantly feeling uncomfortable while reading it.Eddie s grief felt very real to me and I liked her but I didn t really understand all her actions I get why she was drawn to Culler and I get why she felt like only Culler could really understand her and not Milo but I don t get how she could have missed the gigantomous, neon colored CREEP sign that was flashing right above Culler s head the entire time I mean, I foun [...]

    .Imagine you re the weight around a person who jumps.That you are what keeps them falling My hands are dying I keep trying to explain it to Milo, but he just looks at me like I m crazy They don t feel warm they haven t .We re all lost in different ways, so how do we even help each other find our way out We won t We We can t We ll just stay lost forever.

    Hi, do you want your heart to break often and repeatedly Oh, AWESOME, because I would therefore like you to read this book Summers does it YET AGAIN, makes you feel crap perhaps you d like to keep buried, except she does it in such a beautiful REAL manner it s totally the good kind of pain.This could easily be a Dead Dad Book, because, well, there is a dead dad and all But it just isn t, because instead it s the story of one girl and her life, and that just happens to be post her dad s death The [...]

    I hate to start off my 1st review of 2011 and my first read as a Street Corner Booker in a negative light, but honesty is the best policy I wasn t wowed I really expected to be from reading so many rave reviews on here.Eddie Reeves is on a mission A mission to understand why her talented, famous, photographer of a father committed suicide She blames herself, she questions herself She questions everything She meets one of her father s only students, Culler He seems like a breath of fresh air, lik [...]

    Rating 4.5 StarsPlease, please don t make me talk about this one I can t Fall for Anything is the type of contemporary grief novel I have been clamoring for the type of book that is a mere snippet of time It sucks you in from the first page and leaves you just as easily suspended at the last Fall for Anything unflinchingly leaves no answers It explores suicide in a manner that is painfully striking one that reminds us all that there is no answer to this type of death And even startling than tha [...]

    Full review here stackedbooks 2010 I ve been impressed with Courtney s first two books But impressed isn t even a fair word to use for this one It was beyond my expectations This is a story of grief Overwhelming, powerful, enveloping grief And it is a story about heartlessness and art While reading it, the only word I kept thinking about overandoverandover was intimate This is an intimate look at loss and life and utter despair I wanted so hard to tell Eddie to be Eddie, to be herself, to not be [...]


    Sarah

    I have no idea how to rate this This is my third book by Summers, and my least favorite so far No matter which rating they receive from me, her books always affect me in one way or another They re moving, shocking and eyeopening with their raw and unflinching tone It s powerful The writing is on point, the characters are very flawed and often unlikable Summers makes these people human and real, and no one is one dimensional With that said, this wasn t a book for me Eddie s voice was nowhere near [...]


    Cathryn

    This is my third book by Summers and it was the weakest out of the three It wasn t bad It just wasn t as strong as her other books Still a compelling read but the resolution was lacking.


    Whitney

    I really enjoyed this book It was actually really addicting to read I could not put it down.I loved this book and now I want to get my hands on every Courtney Summers book there is I actually went on BookOutlet right after I finished this and found some of her books and they ll be coming soon Anyway, this book is awesome So heartfelt and emotional Eddie s father has just committed suicide and this book chronicles what happens after this horrible event I ve never read a book where a parent has ki [...]
