My feelings: 

For Clementine Haas, finding herself is more than a nice idea. Ever since she woke up in an Irish hospital with complete amnesia, self-discovery has become her mission.
They tell her she’s the lone survivor of a plane crash. They tell her she’s lucky to be alive. But she doesn’t feel lucky. She feels…lost.
With the relentless Irish press bearing down on her, and a father she may not even recognize on his way from America to take her home, Clementine assumes a new identity and enlists a blue-eyed Irish stranger, Kieran O’Connell, to help her escape her forgotten life…and start a new one.
Hiding out in the sleepy town of Waterville, Ireland, Clementine discovers there’s an upside to a life that’s fallen apart. But as her lies grow, so does her affection for Kieran, and the truth about her identity becomes harder and harder to reveal, forcing Clementine to decide: Can she leave her past behind for a new love she’ll never forget?

My Review:
Who doesn't want to read this book? Look at that cover! It's so cute!
Well, I can tell you guys The Upside of Falling Down isn't a cute, light hearted story. 

Clementine is a confused, worried and conflicted character. She wants to find out who she is, but doesn't want to face her past. I liked Clementine. I thought the way she handled things was not perfect, but as confused as she was I could totally understand. One thing I couldn't really understand was why she took the money Kieran gave her. She said she wanted to be independant, but then turned around and did the opposite of what she wanted to be. Kieran is another great character in the story. He is mysterious, but really caring and kind. Totally swoon worthy! I understood why Siobhan, sister of Kieran, didn't really liked Clementine.

The plot is interesting. Clementine has to find out who she was and who she is now.There is a twist in the story and I never saw it coming. So, yay! 

The title of the book The Upside of Falling Down really describes this story so well. 
If you like contemporaries, try The Upside of Falling Down!

I was all prepared to see you not liking this one after you said it wasn't cute or light-hearted. So glad this one took you by surprise. I'm very curious about it now.

I would have expected something on the light side, and so it's good to know that wouldn't be quite right. This sounds really good and I am glad you enjoyed it, Nina!

Oh this book sounds amazing! Might definitely put that one on my TBR list although I'm not much of a YA reader. Is it even YA? :)

This sounds super cute. It's on my TBR mountain chain -- must get to it SOON. Glad you enjoyed it so much :)
