Hello lovely viewers!
It’s been a while but I am back and ready for action with this little blog of mine! Since I started this blog I have not been very active but that is about to change. Get readyfor more regular updates on all things beauty, fashion, and lifestyle!
To start things off I thought I would do a book review. I am planning on doing these weekly so please feel free to give me your book suggestions. I am constantly reading and am always looking for recommendations!
One of the books I finished most recently is It Ends WithUs by Colleen Hoover. In order to give you an unbiased feel for the book I have first included some general information on the book. I will then go into a plot summary and at the end of my post I will include my thoughts on the book. Please let me know for future book posts if you like this formatting!
Information: This book, published in 2016, is 367 pages long. The book is classified as contemporary. GoodRead gives the book 4.45 stars out of 5. It also won the 2016 GoodReadChoice Award for Romance.
Summary: Lily has always worked hard for what she has. Recently she has graduated from college and made the move to Boston. Not happy in her current career path she decides to follow her dream to quit her job and open her own business. Just her luck, around the same time she opens her business, she runs intothe gorgeous Ryle Kincaid. The one man who inspired her to go after her dream months earlier. How much better can life get?!
Ryle is the man of Lily’s dreams. Confident, bold, and career-driven, Ryle knows what he wants, and what he wants is Lily. Only problem is, he doesn’t want an actual relationship and that is all Lily hopes for. However, Lily proves to be his one weakness.
Ryle’s fear of commitment gets Lilly thinking about her first love Atlas Corrigan. The one that got away. Soon Atlas reappears and has Lily questioning what, and who she wants.
In this novel, Hoover has readers questioning what exactly it is you want in life and what is more important. Your dream and career, or your one true love?
My Thoughts: Let me start out by saying this book is absolutely phenomenal! Inspiring, raw, beautiful, this book is one of the best books I have read in a while. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who asks! The whole time I was reading I did not want to put this book down. I stayed up late into the night soaking up this book.
From the very first page you can truly see what a talented author Colleen Hover is. Her storytelling skills and lyrical writing are something to be envious of.
The main character of this novel, Lily, is the type of woman everyone should inspire to be. She is not afraid to go after her dreams and get what she wants in both her career and love. She refuses to settle and this is something hard to find in the heroine of many books. No matter what happens in her life Lily refuses to stop trying. She has the drive and ambition to get where she wants to go.
There is no doubt in my mind that this book deserved to win the GoodRead Choice Award in Romance. It has all the elements of an amazing story and has convinced me to read more books by Colleen Hoover. I hope everyone goes out and reads this book. Trust me when I say that it will change the way you look at love and life. I leave you with my favorite quotes of the novel “Just because we didn’t end up on the same wave, doesn’t mean we aren’t still a part of the same ocean.” Until next time my loves, happy reading!
