I don't know how she does it, but she did it again. Colleen Hoover words are a drug, and I'm addicted. I pushed off reading HOPELESS because everyone was talking about the book like it was the only thing in the world that existed. Well, now I know what I was missing. It completely blew me away, and I want to read it over, and over again.
"Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you more hopeless than believing the lies..."
Sky, a seventeen-year old who has been home-schooled and technology deprived her entire life, must have the best luck in the world. Karen, her adopted mom, is a technology-hating vegan. Her best friend Six, who's real name is actually Seven, is leaving for Italy as a foreign exchange student for six months. Then there's Holder. Dean Holder.
Once the two of them met, there was instant connection. As the reader, you can feel that pull, that instant chemistry.
The odd thing for Sky was, she didn't get that--butterfly in the stomach, knees weak-- kind of feeling for guys. But somehow, Holder changed everything for her. He was there for all her life's ups and downs, which coincidentally, were all happening at the same time.
“I swear I will spend every last breath thanking you for allowing yourself to love me.”
It was amazing how their love was so passionate, and real. I was "shipping" their relationship by the time I was half-way through the book.
If you only read one book in your life, please make sure its HOPELESS.
“Fuck all the firsts, Sky. The only thing that matters to me with you are the forevers.”
