My Review:

 

 

OMG , I DONT HAVE ANY WORDS
This is my favorite book by CoHo so far .

 

“When you find love, you take it. You grab it with both hands and you do everything in your power not to let it go. You can’t just walk away from it and expect it to linger until you’re ready for it.”

 

I’m usually not a big fan of Romance novels , and i especially HATE Insta-love , but Colleen’s books are an exception most of the time , and this one was definitely the best i read in a while.

 

I liked the characters , Fallon is my favorite , her story is interesting . Ben , he was amazing most of the book , but after the revelation i really don’t know how to feel about him , i also found his love letters a bit cheesy and uncomfortable .

 

AND WAIT! Ian ,Tate and Miles from Ugly love are in this book?? WHAAT ! so

 

everything is linked ? every even in this book to every character by COLLEEN??

 

But i also think everything i liked and disliked served the story right , as i mentioned before , i rarely read the book description so everything was a huge surprise for me , i had fun watching the events unfold , and after they made the agreement i knew i was hooked

 

description

 

and just when i started thinking everything was fine , a new thing comes up and guts me ! then it get fixed and i assume this is the ending , then BAM , colleen hits me with another blow , each one harder than the other . Damn this plot was strong !

 

description

 

i just didn’t know what to expect anymore , i didn’t see any move coming .

Jordyn and Ben OMG what was that about? i couldn't believe it , that was way more surprising than the revelation that <b>Ben</b> started the fire WTF . after finding out about it i became a total wreck

(spoiler show)

 

 

I freaking cried ! and maybe died and came back to life , who knows ! the shock value is strong in this one

 

description

 

i’m not saying this is the best story written , nor the best romance book out there . BUT

IT WAS SO FUN TO READ ! I FINISHED IT IN TWO DAYS . i really couldn’t put it down.

I really don’t know what to say even though i’m sure i talked too much , but you should read this if you like being surprised and hurt and gutted and killed then revived just so you can endure it ALL OVER AGAIN

 

Damn Colleen this was a roller coaster ride . one minute i’m swooning about the cute love story and the other i’m crying and screaming about the betrayal

 

description

 

what i’m saying doesn’t make any sense ? yes , yes perhaps , but blame Colleen for it ( TATE AND MILES ARE IN THIS BOOK )

five-stars

Roman

 

Jetzt auch als Taschenbuch

 
 

Ein Mädchen als Mitbewohnerin in der WG? Nichts lieber als das, denkt Warren. Vor allem, wenn besagte Mitbewohnerin so überaus attraktiv und sexy ist wie Bridgette.

 

Doch Warren gegenüber verhält sich Bridgette kaltschnäuzig und abweisend. Offensichtlich hasst sie ihn aufs Blut … oder doch nicht? Was, wenn die Leidenschaft, mit der sie ihn verabscheut, eine ganz andere Leidenschaft verbirgt? Genau die plant Warren aus ihr herauszukitzeln. Ein gefährliches Spiel beginnt, bei dem Warren Gefahr läuft, sein Herz zu verlieren …

 

Meine Meinung:

Ich habe ja vor einiger Zeit Maybe Someday der Autorin gelesen und war daher sehr auf diese Zusatzgeschichte gespannt. Freundlicherweise wurde mir das Buch vom dtv Verlag zu Rezensionszwecken zur Verfügung gestellt. 

 

Der Schreibstil von Colleen Hoover war natürlich wieder total toll und das Buch sehr flüssig zu lesen. Da es ja auch nur eine kurze Geschichte ist, was ich natürlich schnell damit durch. 

 

Hier ging es um Warren, der in der WG mit Ridge (Hauptprotagonist aus Maybe Someday) wohnt. Dann lässt Ridge Bridgette in die WG einziehen und Warrens Gefühlsleben gerät durcheinander. Mehr möchte ich da jetzt gar nicht verraten. 

 

Die Charaktere Warren und Bridgette haben mir sehr gut gefallen, es hat Spaß gemacht, ihre Geschichte zu erfahren. Vor allem Warren fand ich sehr humorvoll und liebenswert.

 

Alles in allem hat mir diese Kurzgeschichte sehr gut gefallen. Was Kurzgeschichten ja leider an sich haben, sie sind einfach etwas kurz gehalten. Es hat mich aber gut unterhalten und ich gebe dem Buch sehr gute 4,5 Sterne.

Maybe Someday - Colleen Hoover

I had to take several deep breaths while reading this book. I was irate. I spared everyone from status updates because it looks like a lot of readers felt the way I did.

 

"Maybe Someday" is dealing with two people who randomly come together after starting to text each other. Sydney is living with her friend and roommate (Tori) and often goes on her balcony to listen to a boy she doesn't know play his guitar (Ridge). Soon we find out that Ridge is stuck with writer's block and can't come up with lyrics for the songs he is playing. So he starts holding up signs to Sydney since he notices her always singing along to his music. Yes, Sydney is such a musical genius she can listen to musical notes and come up with pitch perfect lyrics. So the two start a weird friendship.


Sydney though is happy with her long time boyfriend (Hunter) but still has doubts. All doubts are erased though when she finds out he's been cheating. And due to the most ridiculous thing ever, she ends up moving in with Ridge and his other two roommates. I still want to know where these people live that they have a four bedroom apartment. Scratch that, I don't care. 

 

Anyway, Sydney has no money and no place to live (I can't recall why) and agrees to live with Ridge and not pay rent as long as she's helping him write lyrics. 

 

And of course love. But hold up, Ridge has the most awesome girlfriend ever (Maggie) and now Ridge is torn between Maggie and Sydney. 


Hoover chooses to tell this in alternating POV's which of course showcase Ridge and Sydney.

 

First things first, the two leads suck. I hated Ridge and Sydney. They are terrible as hell and self absorbed. I had moments when I wanted to smack the crap out of both of them since they fought so hard to not be attracted to each other. Yeah, not really. They both act childish if the other one pays attention to anyone else of the opposite sex. 

 

I disliked Ridge because he lies about even having a girlfriend until Sydney finds out about it and he acts totally surprised about why is she mad. Frankly, I wish that Hoover had explored that more.  Why is Sydney mad? Men and women can shocker, be friends and if one or both are in relationships then you can't be mad that a guy you are thinking about is dating someone else. Can I also say that Sydney has been broken up with her boyfriend for like 3 days at this point so I rolled my eyes at how hearbroken she supposedly was.


There is of course an incident. And frankly once again I think Hoover tried to soft pedal it so that you would root for Frick and Frack to get together. I kept hoping they both die in a weird accident with an epilogue from Maggie's POV. Too bad. 


Back to Ridge and Sydney, they are both overwrought as hell talking about how their hearts are being ripped out and their souls are being torn in half. I am not kidding people. That is a good majority of the book. 

 

The thing that gets me is that Sydney acts like an even bigger ass when the truth comes out and people notice what is going on with her and Ridge showing everyone their "feelings." 

 

I liked Maggie, Warren, and Bridgette (sadly) and that was it. Maggie deserved better and honestly I hated how Hoover ended this with pretty much Maggie being more of a grown up and honest person then these two yahoos. I hated that Hoover tried to show some parallels between how Maggie and Ridge got together and nope, didn't buy it at all. Warren was the only grown-up considering how Hoover portrayed him. 


The writing was not my favorite. The flow was all messed up too. I think it was because of the fact that Hoover kept including song lyrics throughout this book. I didn't care for any of them. And didn't get musical genius for the words that the character of Sydney was writing. Probably because I could not hear the music. And as I said above. Once Sydney and Ridge acknowledge their feelings for each other each of their POVs become more and more over the top about their feelings I think that even Romeo and Juliet would tell them to take it down a notch. 

 

The setting of the book was pretty much their apartment. 


The ending was a joke. 

 

Ridge "chooses" Sydney. But that's after Maggie dumps him. I did laugh. I wish that Maggie had sent Sydney an email saying yeah I gave him to you. Enjoy until another girl comes along.

Reading progress update: I've read 100%.
Maybe Someday - Colleen Hoover

I loathe cheating storylines in my romances. Don't really care if it's a New Adult book or not. Bah to the whole book. Also the songs that were included I was not feeling at all.

Monday Mini – Hopeless by Colleen Hoover @colleenhoover

MY REVIEW

 

I won this signed first edition paperback and was delighted. I have read Colleen Hoover’s work before and feel she will not let me down in Hopeless about a seventeen year old girl and her first love.

 

The first guy she felt something for and…

He’s a dropout, he’s moody, he’s got a temper and…he’s just…Hopeless.

When they lay on the airport runway and gaze at the stars it brought back memories of Mr Wonderful and I laying on the tennis court at Cape Cod and stargazing ourselves.

I loved it, but the way it was written made it seem like the characters were older.

 

Colleen Hoover’s writing makes the story unfold with fun bantering dialogue in an easy reading story as they discover each other and we watch the complex characters grow and develop.
