This Girl by Colleen Hoover

“Colleen Hoover’s New York Times bestselling Slammed series has brought countless readers to their knees with a whirlwind of love, passion, and heartache.

Layken and Will’s love has managed to withstand the toughest of circumstances and the young lovers, now married, are beginning to feel safe and secure in their union. As much as Layken relishes their new life together, she finds herself wanting to know everything there is to know about her husband, even though Will makes it clear he prefers to keep the painful memories of the past where they belong. Still, he can’t resist his wife’s pleas and so he begins to untangle his side of the story, revealing for the first time his most intimate feelings and thoughts, retelling both the good and bad moments, and sharing a few shocking confessions of his own from the time when they first met.

In This Girl, Will tells the story of their complicated relationship from his point of view.

Their future rests on how well they deal with the past in this final installment of the beloved Slammed series.”

~Synopsis from Goodreads

I’m so sorry for not posting you can all hate me I just have no motivation.

Anyways let me tell you this book was great. It is NOT something that you have to read. It’s literally Will just telling his side of the story. I loved it, but it wasn’t necessary.

Anyways this was short. Sorry. I gave this a 5 out of 5 stars. It is new adult, so ages 17+ should read. I’m not gonna say you have to read it cause it doesn’t add much to the story.

Slammed by Colleen Hoover

“Following the unexpected death of her father, 18-year-old Layken is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacious, but inwardly, she’s losing hope.

Enter Will Cooper: The attractive, 21-year-old new neighbor with an intriguing passion for slam poetry and a unique sense of humor. Within days of their introduction, Will and Layken form an intense emotional connection, leaving Layken with a renewed sense of hope.

Not long after an intense, heart-stopping first date, they are slammed to the core when a shocking revelation forces their new relationship to a sudden halt. Daily interactions become impossibly painful as they struggle to find a balance between the feelings that pull them together, and the secret that keeps them apart.”

~Synopsis from Goodreads

Okay wow this book was amazing. Bet you guys are tired of me saying that. Not my fault I’m reading a ton of great books.

But anyways, this book deals with death and this very close to my heart. Dating someone older is also something I relate to just not a teacher.

I think the grief is so real and the story and romance is just beautiful. Like forreal such goals! I love how CoHo focused on the romance but throws in more important things like death and grief. She does that in every one of her books and I love it.

I gave this a 5 out of 5 stars. I absolutely loved it. It is new adult so 17+ but otherwise I think everyone should read it!

Until Next Time,

Alex

Never, Never trilogy by Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher

“Best friends since they could walk. In love since the age of fourteen.

Complete strangers since this morning.

He’ll do anything to remember. She’ll do anything to forget.”

~Synopsis from Goodreads

Alright so these were really fast short reads. They’re all about 160 pages each which is why I’m reviewing them together.

With the material I thought it would move fast, but it was slow at the beginning and took me 30 pages or so to get into it. I really enjoyed all three books. I thought they were great and had a ton of mystery in it. The resolution got me and I loved it.

My only problem was this either should’ve been longer or just one book.

I gave each book a 4 out of 5 stars. I enjoyed it and I think it is totally worth the read. It is young adult so please read it and let me know what you think!

Until Next Time,

Alex

~Synopsis from Goodreads

Okay, how many times can I say that I love this book? Like the confessions that are such a big part of the story are real confessions! That’s amazing. And the entire situations is so amazing. The plot twist at the ending pissed me off, but I’m so glad it ended the way I wanted it. Because I was so scared. Just read it.

I gave this a 5 out of 5 stars! I loved this book and the writing style and the concept. It is new adult so be wary of that. Otherwise I totally recommend it.

Until Next Time,

“Beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover returns with an unforgettable love story between a writer and his unexpected muse.

Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day before her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel. Over time and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet on the same date every year. Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist.”

~Synopsis from Goodreads

So I don’t know why, but I was expecting a really cheesy love story. I mean honestly doesn’t it sound like it would be? But the crazy thing is? It wasn’t. It was beautiful and heartbreaking and I love the characters.I love the writing style and the entire concept for the story is genius. Every single time I start a new Coho book I expect it to be worst than the last one. Which is insane because they’re all amazing and I love them all the same.

I gave this a 5 out of 5 stars! It is new adult and I think most of her books are, so be aware of that! I totally recommend it though because omg the feels. Also, message me on Insta because we need to talk about these books.

Until Next Time,

Alex

Maybe Not by Colleen Hoover

“Colleen Hoover, the New York Times bestselling author of Maybe Someday brilliantly brings to life the story of the wonderfully hilarious and charismatic Warren in a new novella, Maybe Not.

When Warren has the opportunity to live with a female roommate, he instantly agrees. It could be an exciting change.

Or maybe not.

Especially when that roommate is the cold and seemingly calculating Bridgette. Tensions run high and tempers flare as the two can hardly stand to be in the same room together. But Warren has a theory about Bridgette: anyone who can hate with that much passion should also have the capability to love with that much passion. And he wants to be the one to test this theory.

Will Bridgette find it in herself to warm her heart to Warren and finally learn to love?

Maybe.

Maybe not.”

~Synopsis from Goodreads

Okay guys, first of all I am so sorry for not posting ANYTHING. I feel so bad. But I will be catching up on everything so sorry for annoying you.

Anyways! I loved this book. It was a cute and sweet novella that made me feel all the feels. I freaking fell in love Warren even more. I started to like Bridgette. That’s all I’m gonna say.

Anyways this was a short book! I gave it a 5 out of 5 stars and I fell in love with it. It is new adult! I really think you guys should check it out if you like Colleen Hoover.

Until Next Time,

But when Sydney finds out her boyfriend is cheating on her, the bubble bursts. The mysterious and attractive man behind the music, Ridge, gives Sydney hope that she can move on and they begin to write songs together. But moving on is harder than she expects, Sydney can only hope….

Maybe someday…

Colleen Hoover draws you in to this passionate tale of music, love and betrayal…”

~Synopsis from Goodreads

I love this book so much! Colleen Hoover is a freaking genius and I loved it. I think combining the music with the book and all that is amazing. I just love the entire story. And adding Ridge’s problem just made it so much better. I think Sydney’s predicament at the beginning of the story that adds into why she needs to live with Ridge.

I gave this book a 5 out of stars and I’m just so in love with Colleen Hoover’s books. They’re just so good. I recommend it to 17+ because it is more like New Adult. I love it so much omg. Seriously just read all her books.

Until Next Time,

Alex

Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover

“This novella is a companion novel to the Hopeless series, but can be read as a standalone.

A chance encounter in the dark leads eighteen-year-old Daniel and the girl who stumbles across him to profess their love for each other. But this love comes with conditions: they agree it will only last one hour and it will only be make-believe.

When their hour is up and the girl rushes off like Cinderella, Daniel tries to convince himself that what happened between them only seemed perfect because they were pretending it was perfect. Moments like that with girls like her don’t happen outside of fairytales.

One year and one bad relationship later, his disbelief in insta-love is stripped away the day he meets Six: a girl with a strange name and an even stranger personality. Daniel soon realizes the way he pretended to feel about Cinderella and the way he really feels about Six may not be so different after all. Especially when the two loves of his life end up being one in the same.

Unfortunately for Daniel, finding Cinderella doesn’t guarantee their happily ever after…it only further threatens it.”

~Synopsis from Goodreads

I just loved the story. It follows Six and Daniel, the best friends of Holder and Sky. Somehow, they start to build a relationship together Later, Daniel finds out that Six is the girl he had amazing sex with a year before in a dark closet. And somehow things take an odd turn.

I loved this novella. I think it was so cute and simple. It was such a good story and it’s not necessary to read it, but I recommend it. I recommend it to 16+ because sex is talked about quite a bit in this.

Until Next Time,

Alex
