MY RATING: 5 Starts
Of course that this being one of Colleen Hoover’s books I have nothing but amazing things to say about it !
I know that this book was one of the first books written by this amazing author and I know that I probably should have started reading it sooner, I just didn’t have this series with me when I started reading her books, my first book written by CoHo was “Confess” and at the time this was the book that was just being released so I was just hearing lots of amazing stuff about “Confess” and I decided to make it my first reading from Colleen. I bought the “Hopeless” duology/trilogy, it depends on your point of view really, some weeks ago, and I don’t really know why I didn’t buy them sooner I just have something against series I guess, I prefer stand alones BUT, as I said in my reviews for the “Slammed” trilogy with Colleen Hoover everything is different, so now I don’t actually mind reading trilogies if that means reading more CoHo, I just think that “Hopeless” would be amazing just as a stand alone itself, but I can’t talk a lot about it for now because I still have to read the second book !
Talking about the book now:
The characters are so perfect, I love Sky, I love Holder (a ton actually), I just can’t help but love Six… Colleen Hoover did an amazing work with the characters in this book, really ! This was one of the books that totally blew my mind away, I mean… CoHo has that gift I know, but I just, I wasn’t expecting a lot of stuff that happened you know ?
While reading this book my mind was just diving into really different places, I was always taking my own conclusions, I actually talked to my mom (without spoiling her for this book of course) about what I was thinking about the story and what I thought that the next 2 books were going to be about… and I was just SO EFFING WRONG ! All I thought was just completely wrong, and when I talked to her about it I had already passed half of the book so yes miss CoHo, you are the QUEEN !
There was ONE LITTLE THING that I knew since almost the beginning of this book, and I can’t tell you what it is of course because I would be spoiling the story for you, but I can tell you that it has to be with Sky’s childhood. I knew it, I knew what happened and I was right about it since the very beginning of the book.
My favorite character in this book was Holder and I mean, my favorite characters are ALWAYS boys in Colleen Hoover’s books, SO this is not a surprise I know, and I sincerely hope the second book is about Holder, I mean, I hope it is narrated by him, I want to read his point of view because I BUTTERFLYING LIVE HIM ! (see what I just did ? I used one word from the CoHo book “Slammed” – “butterlying” replacing the F word and I used the “live” replacing “love” from this “Hopeless” book… I am so amazing guys)
TALKING ABOUT BEING AMAZING ! When you find out about what “Hopeless” actually mean… OMG, seriously, you’ll love it, I was not expecting it at all, thank you Colleen Hoover for this amazing book.
I obviously recommend this book to everyone in this world and beyond ! I hope you love it as much as I did really and if you want to buy the same edition I own just check the Book Depository link I left for you !
