Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

It is official: I am no longer a CoHo virgin. Am I happier for it?


I have mixed feelings.


On the one hand, I have to admit this was a rather original addition to the realm of New Adult literature. The male interest was... unconventional. I won't spoil it for you, since I really enjoyed being surprised by that little revelation. 


The angst was crushing. The scenes were overflowing with drama and romance and repressed feelings and sacrifice. I actually cared.

On the other hand, there were things that bugged me to no end. Like the fact that the girl cried all the fucking time. She bursts into tears twice a day, I kid you not. It's annoying. There are limits, even when you're living a miserable life like her (don't even ask, just read and marvel in the drama). She even cried after sex. Come on!



Overall, it was a slightly above average read. I'll definitely be revisiting Ms. CoHo later on.

More Than Words by Lilly Avalon
More Than Words - Lilly Avalon

1,5 stars


I have endured fifty pages of facepalms and eye-rolls.



This novella was like a mine field. A mine field of stinky cheese. Cheese that can and most certainly will explode as soon as you step on it.


"Yeah... that was my first... orgasm."


Do I even need to comment?


"Tell my best friend about how I've inadvertently fallen for a guy who only wanted me for one night?" I turn to her, my eyes filling with tears.
"Oh sweetie." She wraps her arms around me as I quietly cry on her shoulder and tell her everything that happened.


Yes, of course he did. Poor you.



We were like two halves of a whole coming together and it made me feel complete.


I can't even.



I think I'm allergic to this book.

This cutesy thing is a slightly innovative friends-to-lovers kind of romance. Definitely sweet, but it wasn't that exciting... I guess I'm not used to dealing with insecurities that seem to remain unsolved for too long. Honestly, Emilia's friends somehow became irrelevant along the way, with the details blurring completely. For such a short book, there should have been less soppiness and more focus on something other than a painfully static relationship. I mean, they kissed once and they're already dating?

Sorry, but that is not functional.


However, I actually liked the fact that Emmy's character reminded me of myself, with her social networking and book addiction. But mine's not nearly as bad.


Overall, it was a nice book, but it seemed to drag on and on about the same subjects. I also didn't feel very emotionally attached to the main couple and found their arguments a bit repetitive.
