    1. There aren't really a lot of books that match up with my experience of high school. I didn't know vampires and unfortunately didn't actually apprentice to be a knight in Tortall (my genuine loss) and it just happens that most of the books I love don't strike a chord with my own experiences. But I was a goodygoody in high school, so that happens. But THIS BOOK. I can't say I ever had a night quite like this, but that unbelievable sensation of time being completely irrelevant, darkness being endle [...]


    2. This was all kind of cuted unbelievable. "OH, CAIT, SHUSH YOUR CRYPTIC ANALYSING BRAIN AND JUST ENJOY TEH BOOK." Okay! Okay! I tried, I truly did. The writing was excellent, the premise was cute, the characters were adorable.but the plot?! The story takes place over a 24-hour period, which isn't a lot of time to break up with a girlfriend, grieve a lost parent, make few friends, change your viewpoint on life, and, OF COURSE, fall in love. It takes me 24-hours to decide on an ice cream flavour. S [...]


    3. I enjoyed how REAL this book felt it wasn't zany or heightened or slapstick, it was just real teenagers with real emotions and reactions, in situations I would have found myself in back in high school. And also, the romantic tension in the second half was ON. POINT. Fans of Sarah Dessen or Jen E. Smith will love this.


    4. This book just never really held together for me, and I've been trying to figure out why. Here's my working theory:Bright Before Sunrise is told from the alternating POV of two characters, Jonah and Brighton. It's one of those "one night changes everything" stories, and normally I LOVE those -- books like Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley or Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn.I think this particular story moved too fast to allow me to become invested in either chara [...]


    5. 2014 is just CRUEL.It forced me to create a '2014' shelf. And to lock meself in a place with padded walls.-----------------------------------------------January 24th, 2014.Absolutely lovely! <3Review to come!


    6. As a book reviewer I generally gravitate to novels that other bloggers have reviewed themselves, but in the case of Bright Before Sunrise I didn't go into it with pre-existing knowledge of popular opinion backing my decision. I hadn't really heard much of Tiffany Schmidt, either. I just took one look at the gorgeous cover and knew it was something I had to get my hands on.Before starting the book, all I really knew was that Bright Before Sunrise is another young adult, first person dual [...]


    7. Tiffany Schmidt has an engaging and entertaining writing style. Whether you love this book or not, I think, will all come down to whether you relate to and connect with the characters or not. Unfortunately, Jonah and Brighton drove me nuts, so this wasn't my favorite read. I love a good dislike to love story line, and obviously the synopsis makes you very aware that this all takes place within one night. I had no problems with those things. What I had issues with were Brighton and Jonah. And bas [...]


    8. 4,5Stars possibly 5? gonna have to let this sink it.Beautiful beautiful book!After finishing this I wasn't sure how I felt about this.Sure I knew I really enjoyed this one. But was it one of those books, that will stay with me, was it amazing? Or was it just an adorable book?To be clear, my wavering was not about my usual 3 or 4 star when i enjoy a book, no no this time around I wasn't sure if this was supposed to be 4 or 5StarsWell, so I left it. Though about it for several days. Talked about i [...]


    9. I started this book around mid-day, read a few chapters and had to set it aside to do things like, feed my kids and switch the laundry. By the time I was able to pick it back up again, it was 10:30p.m. and I was exhausted. I figured I would still get in at least an hour before my eyeballs gave up. That didn't happen.By 1:30a.m. I was sitting on the floor of my bathroom reading by - I kid you not - nightlight, and fighting the urge to flip to the end to see whether or not this turned out the way [...]


    10. A copy was received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.This review, and others like it, can be found at The Starry-Eyed Revue.I'm a sucker for a book whose events transpire over the course of one day or night.  I also like books where the two main characters start out as enemiesor at least on unfriendly terms and have to work to get into each other's good graces. Also, if I'm being completely honest here, I like books told from dual perspectivesbut only when the voices sound di [...]


    11. 3-3.5 starsFirst thoughts: Bright Before Sunrise has many elements that I love in a book – dual perspective, three-dimensional characters, romance, excellent writing, and a really pretty cover – but there’s one personal issue that kept me from a full on bookgasm.Told in first person, the story alternates between Brighton and Jonah’s very different perspectives over the course of twenty-four hours. Brighton is the popular girl in school everyone loves. She’s always nice and willing to h [...]


    12. 3 stars Upon looking at the cover of Bright Before Sunrise, I expected this adorably cute story about two people who mend each other's problems and fall in love in the process. BBS gives exactly this, but the overall story as a whole did not deliver well. While I enjoyed the story as a whole, I had a few issues with Bright Before Sunrise.As a story that mainly focuses on romance and character development, Bright Before Sunrise unfortunately fell short in this department. In this story, we get bo [...]



    13. One of my most anticipated books this spring. So many raving reviews and high ratings. Such a beautiful cover.Sounded lovely, still left me with such a bitter taste.*sigh*It started so great. I had fun, I liked the characters for a while, well I didn't feel the girls's sadness or the boy's anger, but still I enjoyed the ride.And then it all went downhill for me.*double sigh*What's-his-name here must be the most unlikable male character in the written world (well, let's not go that far, some of t [...]


    14. I absolutely adored this book and could totally go for a sequel. Brighton captured my heart and so did Jonah. Brighton is such a kind, caring person—nice!—and I loved how she was tough, scared, open, kind, compassionate, noisy, stubborn, determined— not at all stereotypical. I loved her relationship with her sister and friends, Her reactions to Jonah were priceless. And that dog NEVER. Oh my goodness that dog walking scene was unforgettable!Jonah needs Brighton in his life. He needs that k [...]


    15. Bright Before Sunrise is a fun, uncomplicated and fluffy teen read about finding your place and learning to live with the hand you've been dealt. Told in alternate points of view, Jonah is withdrawn and angry at the world. He's the leftover child from a broken marriage and seems determined not to adapt to his new life. Honestly, he needed a kick in the pants. While Brighton is seemingly the typical popular girl. Beautiful, wealthy and seems to be only interested in Jonah because he's the one per [...]


    16. Kind of a chlichéd plot: Extremely popular girl and new boy in town, who never says anything to anyone and has no friends being thrown together one night to discover that they are each totally different from what everyone thought. Except the boy, Jonah, is not really a total loser and had tons of friends in his home town, so that makes it only a half-clichéd story, I guess.OK, all clichés aside, I really liked the story and most of the characters and yet there's something missing. I can't put [...]



    17. Brighton is the girl everybody likes, which is good because she strives to be liked. To be nice. Except today she's not feeling quite like the "nice" girl she's always been -- her heart aches the day before the anniversary of her father's death and the memorial that her family will be having.Jonah is the new boy in school this year, but he's not bothered trying to fit in. It's senior year, and he's feeling completely out of place in Cross Pointe. He's not rich like these kids, and he's just not [...]


    18. Check out more of my reviews at Singing and Reading in the Rain!After loving Send Me a Sign, I had high hopes for Bright Before Sunrise. Tiffany Schmidt is a fantastic author, and I don’t question her talent for making me zoom through a book. She captured my attention and this book very easily could’ve been a five-star read. Her writing is good, addictive even, almost enough to mask what went wrong, but in hindsight the story very strongly lacked in development.While this book is definitely [...]


    19. "One night can change how you see the world. One night can change how you see yourself."Bright Before Sunrise takes place over the course of one day. One day that just happens to be a very important, and stressful, day for Brighton. Since the loss of her father exactly one year ago, Brighton tries so hard to be tough and strong yet she's actually falling apart at the seam. She lives every day trying to be the best that she can be, perfect in every situation. She appears as though she's "fine" to [...]


    20. *SPOILER ALERT*Okay, so Brighton basically wants people to just leave her alone, but apparently, she herself can't leave Jonah alone, even after he told her to get lost for about 10 times. Are you kidding me? And she's just SO perfect, oh my my! -_- The attempt at making her PERFECT completely ruined her character.Moving on to Jonah, who's so DEEPLY in love with Carly, suddenly finds her annoying, in just a matter of a few hours? And Brighton, the girl he was despising just minutes ago, now seem [...]


    21. Oh! Oh! Iam obsessed with story with 24 hours period time. Let say, Nick and Norah's infinite Playlist (lovee, the soundtrack of the movie which i watched 4 years ago still be my favorite at this moment, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight (amazing, even though the romance didn't make me swoon, it's still a good story), Graffiti moon (which is totally inspiring :D Ed and Lucy are adorable xdxd love their romance! It seems like they realy truly exist. So i'll definitely give it a g [...]


    22. Das war eine ganz nette YA-Romanze. Ich fand es ziemlich realistisch, nur mochte ich Brighton nicht. Ich meine, sie war mir einfach viel zu nett. Es hat mich ein bisschen an "Du oder das ganze Leben" erinnert, aber es kommt bei weitem nicht an die Geschichte heran


    23. I haven't been able to truly enjoy a book since likeThe Opposite Of Hallelujah this book being the minimum exception. Although, not enough to get me over my reading slump.But it was fun and cute and not horribly cheesy as you would expect.


    24. Even though I loved that this story was told all in one night, I'd still love to know what happens next and how their relationship develops. A second book, maybe?


    25. What is it about "YOUNG ADULT AUTHORS" that is so subbornly ignorant of one simple truth ( BULLYING is NOT a romantic / healthy behaviour ) ? Why despite the obvious wish to write about teenage trials, does Tiffany Schmidt spends the whole book depicting a male character acting out and purposely humiliating and hurting the girl ? Is that really how one writes about love ? Plus having her "hero" obsessed with his girfirend and belittling the heroine is not a great idea either I feel short-change [...]


    26. 3.5/5 stars I first discovered this book on a friend's WOW post and I was definitely intrigued by the synopsis. Contemporaries have been my preferred genre of late and I really liked the idea of two characters coming together to change their opinions and assumptions about one another. While Bright Before Sunrise was a cute read, I did have a very difficult time of connecting with the main characters.My biggest issue with this entire book was Jonah. I spent almost the whole book hating him and wo [...]


    27. Rating: 4 stars :)One night can change how you see the world. One night can change how you see yourself.I'm so glad I picked this book up at the library. It was a sweet, quick read, with a lot of the things I'm looking for in a contemporary. The characters weren't necessarily unique, but each had qualities that made them fresher (in my opinion). The plot itself was okay, with the book being told in alternating perspectives (which happens to be one of my favorite contemporary romance styles), the [...]


    28. I received this book from Bloomsbury Australia and knew absolutely nothing about it. So I read the blurb and decided it sounded interesting. Not to mention that the cover's lovely. Jonah has been the new kid in school for a while now. He keeps to himself and refuses to socialise with anyone. No matter how hard the other kids try to include him, he always assumes the rich snobs of Cross Pointe look down on him because he's from Hamilton. So he lives his school week in a daze that includes ignorin [...]
