My first Colleen book of this epic twenty-four hour saga was It Ends With Us. Beautifully written, this book makes you fall in love with an abuser and takes a harsh look on domestic violence and how it's not always easy to leave an abuser. I started this at just gone midnight, and by three am I was waking up my other half with the sounds of my morbid tears...
This book resonated with me so deeply witch character I loved. It made me hope for a happy ending with an abuser, at which point I had to take a step back to look at my own thought process here. I would highly recommend this book! 4.5 stars.
The morning following reading It Ends With Us I was itching for some more, and a quick tweet told me that lots of people enjoyed Maybe Someday, which I quickly put on my kindle and devoured!
This book is about a girl who finds herself homeless after discovering her long term boyfriend has been sleeping with her room mate. She ends up across the street with the boy who she usually watches play guitar on the balcony. He's taken, but he's got a spare room and is offering her somewhere to stay.
Naturally feelings occur, but for reasons we later discover he won't leave his girlfriend. This book hit me right in the emotional feels again, tears happened. By this point I was widely impressed by Colleen Hoovers ability to make painful situations!
Would highly reccomend - 4.5 stars
I didn't wait to dive into another book, I maybe spent five minutes pondering the awesome that was Maybe Someday before I dived into Confess.
This one is about an artist who paints these amazing paintings based off of peoples anonymous confessions. Girl meets Boy and drama happens, and their lives have been intertwined all along.
This book deals with a young mother who was taken advantage of, an artist who's struggling with the demons of his family and it all works together so well! I devoured this dead quick and moved straight on to my next Colleen Hoover book!
Would highly recommend! 4 stars!
Possibly the weakest of the bunch Hopeless is obviously one of Colleen's earlier books before she got into the swing of just how awesome she can be.
Hopeless follows a girl who is kept away from most tech because of her anti tech adoptive mother. She meets the neighborhood bad boy and things go pretty much as you would expect for the first half of the book. Then things take a really awesome yet odd turn. Why does Colleen hoover make us love people who are abusive and/or do things downright illegal?
This was an okay book, not as awesome as the newest books, but I would still recommend it if you're a fan of Colleen Hoover. 3 Stars.
Ahhh now I move onto my second favorite Colleen Hoover book - November 9. Two people have a chance interaction when a guy pretends to be this girls boyfriend while shes at dinner with her dad. It is super cute, but she's moving to New York the next day, so they agree to meet every November 9 for the following 5 years!
It's just as cute as it sounds, this book grabbed me and while the execution could have been better the plot just enthralled me and I loved it! Naturally, as with all Colleen Hoover books there is more than meets the eye, but I shall save you from the spoilers!
Would HIGHLY recommend! 4.5 stars!
