The Upside of Falling
The Upside of Falling | Alex Light
22 posts | 37 read | 22 to read
A fun, flirty teen debut from Wattpad phenom Alex Light about a fake relationship and real love. Its been years since seventeen-year-old Becca Hart believed in true love. But when her former best friend teases her for not having had a boyfriend, Becca impulsively pretends shes been secretly seeing someone. Brett Wells has it all. As captain of the football team and one of the most popular guys in his school, he should have no problem finding someone to date, but hes always been more focused on his future than who to bring to prom. When he overhears Beccas lie, Brett decides to step in and be the mystery guy. Its the perfect solution: he gets people off his back for not having a meaningful relationship and she can keep up the ruse that shes got a boyfriend. Acting like the perfect couple isnt easy, though, especially when you barely know the other person. But with Becca still picking up the pieces from when her world was blown apart years ago and Brett just barely holding his together now, they begin to realize they have more in common than they ever could have imagined. When the line between what is pretend and what is real begins to blur, they're forced to answer the question: Is this fake romance the realest thing in either of their lives?

Short, cute, clean YA romance.
I read this book in like 3 hours so when I say short I mean SHORT. It was a typical YA fake dating. It was cute at some parts and cringy at others. The characters did grow throughout the book though

This was so super cute. It‘s a YA romance about a fake relationship. Pretty much like every other book with that premise, but it was sweet and fun and I got lost in it for a day. I loved the way the author writes about reading and I thought this was really fun and entertaining!

It was so good and it made me sob but it also gave me butterflies and it had a lot of funny parts but I hated when Brett broke up with Becca because two were a power couple even when they were faking it.

In contemporary books I look for two things:
— cute romantic moments
— hilarious A++++ witty banter
& I feel like this book made a very underwhelming attempt at only one of those things 🤷🏽‍♀️. ★★☆☆☆.

I accidentally clicked this book when I went to click a different audiobook, but honestly, it was the best accident this week. It‘s such a cute story! It‘s one of those fake dating stories and I‘m a sucker for those!

My only complaint isn‘t even really a complaint with the book. Sometimes, I didn‘t realize that Becca was speaking to the other characters, I just thought it was her inner monologue.

This was a really cute and fast read.

Becca and Brett are both dealing with realizing their parents aren‘t who they thought they were. I really like dithering relationship and friendship. They were just so cute.

I had been looking for a light YA contemporary and this did the job for me 😃.

This scene between Brett and Becca is just the cutest. 😍

#swoonworthy

QueenG Actually the scene is from After by Anna Todd but the quote is definitely from The Upside of Falling 3y
That-Bookish-Hiker @QueenG I know that. I just used it because it fit the scene in the tagged book and I didn‘t want to spend 5 hours on Pinterest looking for a cartoon couple reading lol. 3y
QueenG Oh I see. I feel very protective about After because I‘m such huge fan of those books haha 3y
That-Bookish-Hiker @QueenG that‘s ok. I thought about putting a note saying it was from that movie but I was being LAZY again 😂. I‘ll make sure if I do it again to make a note in the future. I‘m very protective of some books and movie adaptations that are my favs too so I totally get it. 3y
QueenG That‘s cool! ❤️✨! I get it lol! 3y

Plus side of mandatory teleworking is better breakfast where I don‘t have to rush and no one interrupting me on break/lunch while I‘m reading!!

This was such a cute book! Becca and Brett are in high school. When they both keep getting asked if they are in a relationship they decide to fake date. The more they hang out together the more they realize they don‘t want it to be fake. But when an event happens and their feeling are called into question. One of them doesn‘t know what they want anymore. I loved watching this relationship evolve. #24b4monday. Didn‘t get much reading done yesterday

MidnightBookGirl I will never not love when fake dating leads to real dating. 3y
Lovesbooks87 @MidnightBookGirl right! That‘s what sold me on this book! 3y

this cover and those in this style is very reminiscent of fun romance covers in the early 2000's but i love that the style if being resurrected for YA audiences. I bet this is a fun love story.
