W… W… W… Wednesday, hosted by Taking on a World of Worlds is a weekly meme showcasing what you just finished reading, what you are currently reading, and what you plan to start reading next. Except I’m changing it up a bit, since I can never plan what I’m reading next (moody reader). Instead I’m going to talk about a book I’ve recently added to my TBR that I’m excited about!

what i recently finished reading

   

Can you even believe I finished three books in one week?! It was an awesome reading week for me. I loved all three of these books. Colleen Hoover outdid herself again with another unique and wonderful story. Harlan Coben kept me guessing until the very end – I couldn’t put the book down! And I just love Jasinda Wilder. She’s so real and inspirational. I devoured her book in a day.

 

 what i’m currently reading

 

I’ve loved most of Jen Lancaster’s memoirs, except the last few were just meh. She self-published this book, and it seems like the reasoning is because she was told by her publisher that her way of writing isn’t good enough anymore. This is her way of sticking it to them, and I hope it’s a huge success. I didn’t get very far reading last night, but several times I was laughing out loud. It’s going to be a fun quick read.

 I love this series and can’t wait for this book to release. I saw it on Netgalley this morning and requested it – hopefully they approve me!

I loved it. It was a softer side of Tarryn Fisher, but it was so good.

This book! Last night I got to about 70%, and it was breaking me. I felt that heaviness in my chest, trying-not-to-sob feeling. IT’S SO GOOD. I just love how CoHo can write such unique stories EVERY TIME. This is absolutely nothing like her previous books, and it has had some pretty shocking moments – I’m loving it!! I hope to finish it today. And then I’m gonna be sad it’s over.

*Does the happy dance* I am so excited that I got a copy of this book. Harlan Coben is my absolute favorite suspense author, and I’ve been really excited to read this one. It’s definitely up next!

Hi, friends! Slowly getting back into the blogging groove after taking a few weeks off. I haven’t been doing much reading, because nothing has really held my attention until this week.

what i recently finished reading

It has been weeks since I finished reading a book, and this was it. I loved it!

It is so good – I’m loving every word.

 

what i have recently added to my tbr

 
You can imagine how excited I was to receive an ARC of this book – my most anticipated book of the year. It’s rare that I KNOW what book I’ll be reading next, but I will absolutely be starting this one when I’m done with AWKAP.

About the book

Sometimes it is the one who loves you who hurts you the most.

Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.

Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.

As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan—her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

With this bold and deeply personal novel, Colleen Hoover delivers a heart-wrenching story that breaks exciting new ground for her as a writer. Combining a captivating romance with a cast of all-too-human characters, It Ends With Us is an unforgettable tale of love that comes at the ultimate price.

my thoughts

I honestly dreaded doing this review. Not because I didn’t like the book, because the opposite couldn’t be more true. This book was so incredible that I feel any review I give it will be inadequate. You’ve heard me praise Colleen Hoover’s books time and time again, and she’s without a doubt my favorite author. But what she gives us with her new book is a complete game changer. She has written a story so emotional and heartbreaking, yet hopeful and moving that any review from me could never do it justice.

Colleen has told her readers that this book is very personal to her, and I felt it. Raw and honest, it was one of the most eye-opening, emotional stories I’ve ever read. Her talent for writing a unique story never ceases to amaze me. But it’s also the way she makes me think and question things that makes her writing so exceptional.

It’s easy to judge and form opinions about a person’s situation when you haven’t experienced it first hand. Colleen does a fantastic job of putting the reader in the shoes of her characters, while packing an emotional punch. And while at times the situation is devastating and heart wrenching (pretty sure I held my breath the entire time I read this book), she weaves strength and courage into the story, giving the reader reason to hope.

I started going into more details about the story, but I really feel like the best way to read this book is by going in blindly, as I did. I had no idea what the book was going to be about, and after finishing it, I’m glad I didn’t. But be prepared for the emotional impact it will have on you – and keep the tissues close by! This is a book that will stay with you long after you finish the last page.

A beautiful story of bravery and hope – this book will change people’s lives.

Bottom Line

Without a doubt Colleen’s best work.
