Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
Maybe Someday - Colleen Hoover

3,5 stars

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.

Roomies by Lindy Zart
Roomies - Lindy Zart

2,5 stars


Well, what a disappointment.


Around 90% I realised that no devirginizing would take place.


I actually read two hundred and thirty pages of pajama descriptions, downright stupid misunderstandings and a so-not-believable dilemma.



Come on, you call this a love triangle? This is child's play. One guy is her long-standing love and best-friend, and the other is his asshat brother, whom she just met! Kennedy tries to appear divided, but honestly, physical attraction doesn't mean she would just ditch the man she has loved for more than a year.


Why drag this on? Why make an entire book about an occasionally funny internal dialogue? There is no romantic interaction whatsoever. That would probably have slightly redeemed the book from its general boredom. But no. Nada.



Conclusion: I have wasted my time.

Stepbrother Dearest by Penelope Ward
Stepbrother Dearest - Penelope Ward

4,5 stars


This was no masterpiece with an outstanding prose. However, as Goodreads keeps reminding me, the rating system it utilises is based on whether you enjoy a book or not.

And I immensely enjoyed "Stepbrother Dearest". I borderline loved it.


It made me feel things. Lots of them.



At first, I wasn't sure about reading this book, since I have been trying to avoid any kind of angst. I've been in a mushy, smexy fase lately. I am so glad I abandoned it, though.





This book is anything but light. Most of the time you'll be in an internal turmoil of sadness and happiness. Because amidst the gigantic struggles you experience first-hand, lies a heart-breaking, epic tale of two people who fell in love so deeply that distance and time could do nothing to undo it.


Elec and Greta are stepbrother and stepsister, yet they don't meet until senior year of high school. They come across as polar opposites: the rude, hurt(ful) boy who wants nothing more than to leave the father who hates him behind for good, and the sweet, kind-hearted girl who keeps trying to get through to him, even though he keeps insulting her and isolating himself.


In time, things begin to change. Elec slowly begins to open the blinded doors to his mind and heart and allowing Greta to reach layers who had remained untouched. The attraction they share is evident and one night, after Elec announces he is leaving sooner than expected, everything changes between them.


They never see each other again until seven years later. Elec is in his first serious relationship since leaving Greta.


When they reunite, it's as if no time has passed and they're eighteen all over again. Their feelings and attraction for one another haven't waned in the slightest. Unlike the circumstances of their lives.


"The "one that got away" was supposed to stay away, not come back and leave you all over again."


One word to describe this book: ROLLERCOASTER.


Possibly dangerous speed. Watch your heart and lacrimal glands.
