Book Review: Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

Hopeless  - Colleen Hoover

Despite not being much of a fan of Sky and Holder's relationship or connection or whatever, I did really find myself invested with the novel. It emanates a mysterious feel in it that made me curious with the book in the first place. As we get closer to the real mystery, I really was surprised as only few of my hunches were proven corrected. Romance and cheesiness aside, the book really was unpredictable. 

I totally admire Colleen Hoover for effectively infusing tough subjects such as abuse and suicide in the novel. Props to her for that. Not only did this had a swoon-worthy romance in it - and I already admitted of not buying it much - it also tackled real andgermane issues in our society. 

Thank you, Colleen Hoover, for writing yet another amazing novel and delivering really quotable lines about life and love such as these:

“Sometimes you have to choose between a bunch of wrong choices and no right ones. You just have to choose which wrong choices feels the least wrong.”


“The events of your life are all crammed together one minute right after the other without any time lapses or blank pages or chapter breaks because no matter what happens life just keeps going and moving forward and words keep flowing and truths keep spewing whether you like it or not and life never lets you pause and just catch your fucking breath.”


“When I touch you, I’m touching you because I want to make you happy. When I kiss you, I’m kissing you because you have the most incredible mouth I’ve ever seen and you know I can’t not kiss it. And when I make love to you—I’m doing exactly that. I’m making love to you because I’m in love with you.”
