The sound of Silence
Maybe Someday - Colleen Hoover

My God, this book. 

I laughed and I cried and I got to youtube to listen to the soundtrack, because yes, it has a soundtrack. At first I was so surprised: 

a book about music...with music in it!


The story is truly amazing, Colleen Hoover is able to get to your feelings with her stories but she had just the most incredible idea to put music to words. 

Now, I re-live the story of the protagonists over and over again everytime that I listen to the songs and it so beautiful I don't even know how to describe it. 


The personality of Ridge is so inspiring to me, he doesn't let anything put him down and goes through life with such a powerful heart and soul.

He is so talented that sometimes I got mad at fate because of him, it was just unfair but then I was so curious about his gift that I was stunned.


Please, do a favor to yourself and read this book. You will thank me later!

Wow...this month was a long one.  I went on vacation (which was so needed), and then a week later I had surgery on my foot.  I have super bad plantar fasciitis, from working on cement floors for so many years.  So they cut me in my arch on the bottom of my foot and in my calf, to stretch the tendons, and hopefully, when I'm more stretchy I won't have this problem anymore.   Right now, I'm basically on bedrest because I can't put any weight on it, yet.  After my surgery on the 20th, I managed to listen to a few more books and boost my reading, it was way down from my usual.  My April reading should be phenomenal though...I don't go back to work until at least the middle of May.

4.2 Out of 5 Never Stop, Never Forget Stars
Never Never - Colleen Hoover; Tarryn Fisher;





Never Never

Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher



Charlize Wynwood and Silas Nash have been best friends since they could walk. They've been in love since the age of fourteen. But as of this morning...they are complete strangers. Their first kiss, their first fight, the moment they fell in love...every memory has vanished. "I don't care what our real first kiss was," he says. "That's the one I want to remember." 

Charlize and Silas must work together to uncover the truth about what happened to them and why. But the more they learn about the couple they used to be...the more they question why they were ever together, to begin with. 

"I want to remember what it feels like to love someone like that. And not just anyone. I want to know what it feels like to love Charlie."






This is so much better when you have all three books in one.  No stopping…just reading straight through.  I read the first book in this series a while ago.  I liked it…but it was just too unfinished to get high enough rating from me. 


Never Never is a teen love story with a forever kind of feel.  I inevitably felt like I could have done without the blatant promiscuity between Charlie and Silas but their love story is super sweet, so I'll try to let it slide.  If you are turned off by stories that have a splash of paranormal then this might not work for you.  I myself, really enjoy stories like this, though.  Maybe, even more than full-blown paranormal…I just feel like I connect when it's more subtly done.

Hopeless - Colleen Hoover

"The sky is always beautiful.Even when it's dark or rainy or cloudy,it's still beautiful to look at....it'll be there no matter what...and I know it'll always be beautiful."



Yay I got a bingo! I hope everyone is proud of me. I also hope everyone is ready for the ride because there is a lot to unpack here.


Ladies: I don't care if your stalker looks like this: 



You know why? BECAUSE CREEPY IS CREEPY. Sky, our lovely protagonist here, has a serious tendency of forgiving every single rational fear or caution because there is a cute boy in front of her. She accepts a bottle with water from the cute stranger, she lets him climb up her window, she doesn't think it's weird that he knows ALL ABOUT HER LIFE FROM SEEING HER DRIVING LICENSE ONCE. To Sky it's completely okay. Why? Because he is hot and she can't control her hormones.


This is how you get murdered.


That being out of the way, let's talk about the plot :)


This is not only a story about two teenagers frolicking in the woods, and that's exactly why I'm giving it 3 and a half stars. Not only is Colleen's writing engaging enough to make cliches interesting, she knows exactly how to keep you invested in her plot. Sky's past is a dark one, something she can't even remember, but still had an affect in every moment of her life. 


“It's real, Six. You can't get mad at a real ending. Some of them are ugly. It's the fake happily ever afters that should piss you off.” 


I can't say I was that interested on the romance. I don't care if he's blushing or the middle of her legs are singing the Macarena. But the characters were definitely interesting and well developed. In the ending, everything in this book is about the past. The connected story of Holder, Sky and Lessie is something that I won't spoil, mostly because it's everything that matters here. It all builds up to the discovery of what happened with these three kids and how they managed to survive through it all. Was it worthy skimming through all the boring romance scenes so I could find out about the truth? Probably.


Sentence: An interesting story buried under a NA romance with all the cliches you would come to expect from it. If you're okay with some digging, I recommend this one.


To my friend that is definitely reading this: sorry I couldn't give 5 stars to your favorite book, girl. Still love you.

Finding Cinderella (Hopeless, #2.5)
Finding Cinderella (Hopeless, #2.5) - Colleen Hoover Note: I have not read anything else in this series or by this author.

I loved the descriptions of teenage love in this novella but that is about all. The writing was ok but not very good characters or settings or story for me. I understand others might love this simpleness but for me it was just not enough. I am not sure I will persevere with others in the series. Maybe given some time and the right holiday I might give it a go but not sure there was quite enough to entertain me - on the plus side it was a very quick read on a flight and in the airport and it did keep my interest and boredom at bay.
