    1. "Don't be special." That's what I would say to my younger self if I could pinpoint the moment when I went astray. But there was no one moment. I was always astray.Uh oh. Brace yourself, fellow fiction lovers, I'm about to tell you a true story. My own, in fact. ^So, I was kind of a weird kid. And I had one hell of a bad time in school. I'm talking particularly about when I was aged 11-16. I was that special breed of socially clueless where I simply just didn't get it. I didn't know how to not be [...]


    2. *I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review*After reading Emily's brave and beautifully honest review of this book I really wanted to read it. Where she spoke about how much she related to Elise because she was like Elise, I’d like to speak from the opposite end of the spectrum because I don’t think you have to have been in Elise’s shoes to appreciate her story or her struggles. You see, I was definitely not this main character in high school. I was popular. I was outgoing. I stu [...]


    3. At the end of January I asked my friends on to recommend me their favorite books/the books that brought them to tears. I got A TON of responses messages, comments, direct recommendations. So I decided to pick the ones that were most recommended and do a massive book haul just off books recommended to me. I got around 15 books. One of the books that was suggested several times to me was This Song Will Save Your Life.I was really skeptical at first about reading this because the first one of thes [...]


    4. When I first read those glowing 5-star reviews I was hooked. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book as soon as it came out. Such high expectations. Sadly this is not for me. How bizarre that I really couldn't connect to it and this story's main character. I don’t like this girl, really I think she is blasé, she is a flake and most of all I hate her for her attitude because she is oh so special. “I was born to be unpopular” So starts the story of Elise Dembowski, sweet sixteen but [...]


    5. What an amazing, awe-inspiring book! This Song Will Save Your Life is emotional and beautiful; a story that will bring out your happy-tears by its conclusion!Once in a while there are books where you get to fully and completely connect to the main character to such a degree that you experience it all as if it was your own story with your own emotions. This was one of those books for me. Elise made it incredibly easy to love her. She's funny and smart, but she has never fit in with her classmates [...]


    6. "You think it's so easy to change yourself. You think it's so easy, but it's not. True, things don't stay the same forever: couches are replaced, boys leave, you discover a song, your body becomes forever scarred. And with each of these moments you change and change again, your true self spinning, shifting positions-- but always at last it returns to you, like a dancer on the floor. Because throughout it all, you are still, always, you: beautiful and bruised, known and unknowable. And isn't that [...]


    7. So, fun fact: this is the first book I ever read with a character named Elise who wasn't an Archetypal Mean Girl. And oddly enough, this Elise is one of the most relatable characters I've ever read about. She's so much like me, like any of us who didn't grow up popular, that it's almost terrifying. “Sometimes people think they know you. They know a few facts about you, and they piece you together in a way that makes sense to them. And if you don't know yourself very well, you might even believ [...]


    8. 3.5 StarsA well-written, enjoyable read but in the end I think I favored the premise of this story over what actually played out. Sixteen year old Elise wants one thing: to become popular and morph into anyone who doesn’t resemble herself. After undergoing a summer of “coolness” self-training, Elise begins her sophomore year armed with new clothes, fresh hope, and shaky confidence. But her efforts prove in vain when she realizes she is still the school’s biggest outcast despite her earne [...]

    10. I’ve written a lot of difficult reviews over the past year, but there has never come a point where I planned to just give up and screw the review because I just couldn’t do it. And then, of course, I read Leila Sales This Song Will Save Your Life and it punched me right in the feels and brought back so many memories and left me a total wreck. I still don’t know how to write this review. I don’t think I can do justice to this book. I just hope that, no matter what, this book gets the atte [...]


    11. 5/5 starsTrigger Warnings: suicide, self harm, depression, bullying Elise Dembowski doesn’t fit in. She spends the summer before her sophomore year of high school literally studying pop culture: the celebrities, the styles, the popular music. She hates it all, especially the saccharine, auto-tuned music. When it comes to music, Elise has standards. But she has come to the conclusion that, had she been more normal as a young child, she wouldn’t have become such an outsider. It may be too late [...]


    12. I really enjoyed this book. I was expecting something completely different actually. The struggles Elise went through happen so often in our world today and I just loved seeing how everything did turn out great in the end. She pushed through and found a great bunch of friends and found something that she loved and brought her so much joy.


    13. Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book for review from BookOutlet in exchange for an honest review.Elise The overachiever reminds me remarkably of me It's hilarious that she wanted to win at everything because I am the same way. If I start a new hobby, I want to learn everything about it so I can master it. Elise is the same way and I love that. She also doesn't know too much about social interactions, which is also something I don't know too well of. Her insightful mind and view of herself [...]


    14. I was brokenI was chokingI was lostThis song saved my lifeI was bleedingStopped believingCould have diedThis song saved my lifeI was downI was drowningBut it came on just in timeThis song saved my lifeSimple Plan's This Song Saved My Life is the first thing I thought of, the first time I saw this novel. Now, that I have read this book, I can say that this song is relevant to the book.I was ready to give this book 4 stars when I'm in a middle of reading it when the later part comes and I didn't e [...]


    15. I was born to be unpopular.Let me start out this review by painting you pictures.PICTURE 1 Elise Dembowski has always been unpopular, there was never a moment when it wasn't so, there was no such thing as pinpointing the exact moment which marked her fall from grace. And I hereby submit these quotes as irrefutable evidence:"Don't be special." That's what I would say to my younger self if I could pinpoint the moment when I went astray. But there was no one moment. I was always astray.And then one [...]


    16. This Song Will Save Your Life hits my heart in the rawest way. The story was so realistic and straightforward. The lines were so relatable and I don't know how to describe what I'm feeling right now as my emotions swirled all over me. I'll make this as a short review because it's hard to formulate a review for this book. Elise Dembowski is an easy character to sympathize with.In her school, she's been bullied and treated as an outcast. She wants a sense of belonging or just fit in on a crowd. Sh [...]


    17. 3.5 starsTRIGGER WARNINGS: self-harm, suicidal thoughts, and bullying.This Song Will Save Your Life was a book I had never come across or even thought about until I watched Emmmabooks video I Am The Reader Book Tag. She started to talk about it in the review and before she had even finished I'd got the book. I couldn't stop myself. The concept behind the book was something that would have meant so much to me when I was younger and struggling with my depression and anxiety (without even knowing I [...]


    18. An incredible story of the importance of finding your place in the world, This Song Will Save Your Life is a great book and its main character is unlike any other.


    19. “Sometimes people think they know you. They know a few facts about you, and they piece you together in a way that makes sense to them. And if you don't know yourself very well, you might even believe that they are right. But the truth is, that isn't you. That isn't you at all.” This isn't a kind of book that will keep you at the edge of your seat, or keep surprising you with plot twists; it's just a simple story about a girl who has never been popular in her life, does all the silly things t [...]


    20. I am honestly very torn as to what rating this book deserves. There are a lot of powerful messages in this book so I think I'll keep it at a 3.5-4 star rating. This is going to be a semi-personal review so I'm sorry if they're not your thing!This was a really easy book to relate to. I've been in the position of almost all of the characters in the book throughout different times of my life. Even some aspects that I couldn't directly relate to, I have witnessed my friends follow the same path that [...]


    21. Books with realistic characters are the reason that I am willing to read any book that I can get my hands on. Because when you find a main character that you can relate to, it just makes the world a bit easier to deal with. I related to Elise so much though we weren't alike in every aspect by any standards -- I've never wanted to be a DJ, I've never divided time between my parents, I have never dealt with bullying, etc. The most prominent part of Elise's life that I could relate to was her inabi [...]



    22. 2.5 - 3 StarsIf not for its perfect timing, I would have given This Song Will Save Your Life two stars.When I first began this popular book, my expectations went from the heavens, down to rock bottom. I absolutely loathed the first few chapters. I was forced to endure a narrator who was not only judgmental, but who seemed to be suffering from permanent PMS. High school isn't that bad, I thought. The girl is a damn drama queen.Of course, after this line of thinking irony decided to make its very [...]


    23. This was a really beautiful read.You see, while dystopias, apocalyptic, and science fiction stories are generally my favourite genres, I do enjoy a sappy, sad story every once in a while. Reading about situations that force your throat to tighten and your heart to squeeze makes me feel somehow alive. Is it weird that I actually look forward to being a sobbing, snotting mess when it comes to books like this? Maybe, but I always loved that feeling. But This Song Will Save Your Life takes it up a n [...]


    24. “You think it's so easy to change yourself. You think it's so easy, but it's not. True, things don't stay the same forever: couches are replaced, boys leave, you discover a song, your body becomes forever scarred. And with each of these moments you change and change again, your true self spinning, shifting positions-- but always at last it returns to you, like a dancer on the floor. Because throughout it all, you are still, always, you: beautiful and bruised, known and unknowable. And isn't th [...]


    25. This is book for anyone who had less than stellar high school experience. I for one despised high school. In fact, I hated school from first grade on. This was is no way due to the required learning. That part I loved. It was the evil little turds known as my class mates that made school so miserable. To this day I can’t pin point why I was the target of so much ridicule. I wasn’t the prettiest, or the most unfortunate looking. I wasn’t rich, but wasn’t dirt poor either so it’s not as [...]


    26. See more reviews at YA Midnight Reads“People are who they are and, try as you might, you cannot make them be what you want them to be.”Have you ever just read a book and wondered if someone got into your brain and put parts of your life down on paper? When I read This Song Will Save Your Life, that's exactly what I was thinking. This is one of those books that will crawl under your skin and stay there forever, keeping its mark. After one day of reading this, I have been contemplating about t [...]


    27. “Sometimes people think they know you. They know a few facts about you, and they piece you together in a way that makes sense to them. And if you don't know yourself very well, you might even believe that they are right. But the truth is, that isn't you. That isn't you at all.” Well, after reading the first chapter I felt that this is something I am gonna enjoy but after finishing it, I feel that it was a little bit MehAnd to be honest, I haven't heard a lot about this book. I came upon it b [...]


    28. This review will also be posted on both of my blogs:fafasbookcorner.wordpress/fafasbookcorner/I first heard of this book from Emily May. I was just going through and I found this book. The only review that I read at the time was Emily May's review. It was late and at that time I wasn't sold for reading this book let alone investing in it. After I believe two months I went back to her review again and fell in love with it. I was so moved by her review that I thought I would also love it to bits [...]


    29. 4.5/5 starsThis was such a lovely beautiful book about finding yourself despite what everyone else thinks about you.I liked Elise as a character, she felt very real most of the time, and felt how I definitely felt a lot of times in high school. And the music THE MUSIC the music. okay i'm done. Just so many things I liked and loved about this book. I honestly believe something like this could happen, as weird as it sounds, because of how it was written. Extremely believable in spite of what the a [...]
