Last month I achieved a personal goal. I read 5 books. It’s been a while since I read that many books in one month. I have to say that I did read great books. It was hard to put them down and that’s also why I managed to read that many books.
In this ‘Books of the Month’ post I’m not going to talk about all the books I’ve been reading as I read trilogies and I like to discuss them separately in a post.
One of the trilogies I have been reading is from Stephanie Perkins. You can read all about that in a post from two weeks ago.
Today I’m going to talk about the other books I’ve read in January, the hopeless series by Colleen Hoover.
It took me maybe two years to finally start reading one of Colleen Hoovers books. I’ve heard so many good things about it that I put all the books of her on my book wish list but I never bought one. Until last Christmas I found the Hopeless series under the Christmas tree. Now I finished reading this series I ask myself why I didn’t read those books sooner.
The Hopeless Series exists out off three books; Hopeless, Losing Hope and Finding Cinderella.
Sky never felt anything before until she meets Dean Holder, he makes her feel things she has never felt before. He not only makes her feel alive but he also frightening’s her with his mood swings. She wants to keep distance from him bit she can’t.
The closer they get together the more sky remembers from her past. When the secret Holders been keeping is out Sky’s life will change forever.
First off all I need a Dean Holder in my life. The things he did in this book I can’t even describe you just need to read it for yourself and then you know what I’m talking about. Just a big wow to Colleen Hoover, I was all over the place at some points reading the book.
It’s a lovely but hard love story. With loads of ups and downs. It’s not only a romantic story it’s about so much more. All together it’s an emotional roller coaster but I loved every single bit of it and it just melts your heart.
Losing hope is in a way the same story as Hopeless but also not. It’s Holders story and it gives you even more answers then Hopeless did.
When I first found out it was actually the same story as Hopeless but Holders story instead of Sky’s I was a bit disappointed and hesitant about it. I was afraid it would be all dragged out and boring as I’ve read the same story already before. I have to say Colleen Hoover surprised me and I changed my opinion already with the first page. How could I thought not liking this book. The way Colleen writes is wonderful. Holders story got me from the start. I wanted to know more about how he experienced everything and obviously the story wasn’t completely the same as Skys he had a completely different life before he met sky. The things that were the same as Sky’s story were still interesting to read as this time it was Holders thoughts and they were different. All together this book was as great to read as Hopeless.
An agreement to love each other for only one hour. Daniel believed what they had in that hour was only so perfect because they pretended.
One year and a bad relationship later he meets Six. Daniel realises that he feels the same for Six as the way he pretended with Cinderella. But finding Cinderella doesn’t mean they found their happily ever after it actually threatens their relationship, are they strong enough to survive the dark past?
Finding Cinderella was a perfect book to end the Hopeless series with but why on earth is it only a Novella. Daniels and Six’s story needed to be as long as Holders and Sky’s.
It’s also a lovely love story but with a deep and darker side as well like Holder’s and Sky’s story.
When you’re in that romantic bubble you will dragged out of it and get a reality check which makes those books not too cheesy but interesting to read. As in real life nothing is perfect either and things like this happen as well.
If you haven’t read a book by Colleen Hoover yet start doing it NOW! Otherwise your missing out on something amazing. I can’t wait to start a new book by Colleen Hoover.
