If my rating scale went up to 10+ stars, that is what I would have given this novel by Colleen Hoover. I went into reading this book with no expectations and really no idea of the emotional trainwreck that was about to hit me. Now I’ll be honest, I miss the days when Colleen’s books were a bit less expensive, $7.99 is pushing my book price boundaries, but it was Colleen so I made an exception. After reading it, I’d have gladly paid more. I read this the day it was published and have had to take a few days to settle before even writing this much.
I cannot say much without giving the story away and I’d never do this because I would want anyone that reads this book to have no preconceived notions about how the story will unfold. Let’s just say that I could connect to Lily in every way and have lived in her shoes both as a child and as an adult. I will admit that I ugly cried my way through this book, so fair warning – DO NOT READ THIS BOOK IN PUBLIC. When I say ugly cry I’m not talking you will shed a few polite tears at the plight of the characters, I’m talking streams of tears, snot, and a splotchy red face. You have been warned.
So if you want to read what I will call one of the BEST books of 2016 – click the links and buy the book.
