Hello everyone and welcome back to the blog! How are you all today? I hope good!
Today is my stop in the Before I Disappear blog tour organised by Fantastic Flying Book Tours and I’m having a review for you guys.
Rose Montgomery parks her family’s trailer in Fort Glory, Oregon with one goal: to carve out a new life for herself and her little brother, Charlie. They need a fresh start for their family, and she thinks she’s finally found it in a town where nobody knows them.
But Rose’s plans come crashing down when, in an instant, Fort Glory disappears and every person in town vanishes into thin air—including Charlie.
Rose and four other teens become trapped in the Fold, a patch of woods caught halfway between the real world and the lost town. In the Fold, a mysterious force suspends the laws of physics, and everyone’s inner darkness has the power to kill.
To survive the Fold, Rose must unravel the clues Charlie sends her from the missing town. And Rose has to find Charlie soon—or he’ll be gone forever.Add the book to your Goodreads to-read shelf

What I liked
I really enjoyed reading Before I disappear. The writing style was fluid and simply perfect. It was easy to get through the chapters and you didn’t see the time fly past.
The idea of this novel was great as well. At some parts it reminded me a lot of Under the Dome by Stephen King and I loved that book. And Under the Dome was messed up as well. (In a good way of course!)
Before I Disappear has a great storyline and I’m interested in reading more by Danielle Stinson in the future. And who knows maybe we get more of Rosie? But I do think that the ending was great as it was and that there won’t be a second book coming out.
What I didn’t like
I thought that the last few chapters were a bit strange. The atmosphere changed and the whole story started to become strange and I had some troubles to follow.
I also thought that it started to drag a lot after 70% which was a bit annoying at some times and this is also one of the reasons why I didn’t give it 5 stars.
Overall, it was a great book with some flaws but definitely a great and quick read. If you liked Under the dome then you will like this one too.
