The final book - sort of?
This Girl - Colleen Hoover

This Girl is the final book in the Slammed series. It's interesting in that this is not only an epilogue, but also the first book from a different perspective. I liked that the author was trying to do here, but there were moments when whole sections felt incredibly redundant. Entire scenes were the same, word for word, just with a different pronoun. 

That said, there was plenty of new scenes as well, and even a few new slams. Overall, this was a good book, and made me like Will more (considering I wasn't too pleased with him during "Point of Retreat."

 

I'm listing this as Upper YA as well as NA, because I think this, like the rest of the series, has cross-over potential. But out of all the books, I would say this one is definitely the one that is better for an older audience. So 17+, maybe?

Book two of the Slammed series - in love, but not as in love...
Point of retreat - Colleen Hoover

Book two of the Slammed series. I'm still in love with Will and Lake, but this book made me realize Will has some faults. Really, I think that just made him human, but he made some seriously stupid mistakes, considering he's supposed to be the more mature/ adult like of the two. 

 

However, this is still a good story. And if you like drama, Hoover can bring the drama. She brings it in droves. Point of Retreat was a one-sitting read for me - I had to know what happened next, and how they would manage to fix everything. Especially the end. Oh man, the ending...

 

Another book that could be a cross-over from YA to NA. Though this one felt a little more NA than the previous book. But still something I can see older teens finding interest in.

My love for Colleen Hoover just grows and grows...
Slammed - Colleen Hoover

Seriously, I have yet to read a Colleen Hoover book that didn't give me the feels. Having read something more recent by her first, I can see how she has grown as a writer over time - but that doesn't mean this book is lacking. I loved Slammed, and I will definitely be purchasing a copy for myself in the near future. Great story, and the poetry contained therein is amazingly moving. 

Four stars! Well worth the read. I can 

I can also see this as being something you can suggest to a teen as well, maybe 16+ - I'm always on the hunt for books with crossover YA/NA potential.
