October’s favorite

October’s winner is totally Colleen Hoover’s Slammed. It was everything I wanted in a romance book. The characters are awesome and he reminded me of Jim Halpert from The Office lol.

The story line was catchy and as usual Colleen added original ideas to it and she always knows how to build the conversations and make the reader get attached to the characters no matter how important they are. I literally had a major hangover over it especially after her mom died and I actually felt so sad like I knew her (I know it sounds crazy but when I read, I’m all heart and soul especially if the book is good).

If you’re into this kind of books please start reading it and check out some more of her books like It Ends With Us, Confess or November 9. Let me know what you think of any of them.

awwwww

“I’ll take the Lake”

I thought I’m gonna have a heart attack or faint or something. THAT’S HOW MUCH I LOVE COLLEEN HOOVER’S BOOKS.

Slammed.

Rating: 20/5.

I think it is pretty clear, since this is a Colleen Hoover book, that I’ve read it in a few hours. I found myself in the same situation as “I don’t know what to read, I’m gonna get myself a cup of Colleen Hoover” which turned into 2 cups cause I HAD to read the next one too because I didn’t calm down with it.

I love both Layken and Will. I love Will more though, he kinda reminds me of Jim Halpert’s character from The Office. Always funny and cute and smart.

I was impressed by the idea of slamming. I didn’t know that it is actually a thing, initially I thought Colleen came up with the idea but afterwards I found out that people are actually doing it. And I love it. Also, I think it was awesome that Colleen actually wrote the slams the characters performed and I loooved theeeem!

Colleen has some really awesome ideas, like the glass vase full of life tips stars to help them when they need it the most when they won’t have anyone else besides them and their brothers (and Will’s grandparents).

By the end of the book my chest was aching. Literally. And then I couldn’t stop thinking about them. And then I’ve read the second book. Review to come.

As a conclusion, YES GO READ IT!!

Extremely loud and incredibly close

Rating: 5/5 stars

Oh man you cannot dislike this one, Oskar is such an adorable character!

I didn’t expect it to affect me at all, but it did. After finishing it my heart felt heavy. You don’t always get to read a book about a tragic event such as 9/11 to actually represent life after the event, the loss and the memories especially through such a great plot and alternating chapters and different points of view. The pictures in the book also played an important role, they really introduced me into the story.

It was so beautiful going with Oskar through his journey just so he can spend a little more time with his dad, just to feel closer to him…(his father died in the 9/11 tragedy).

This is that kind of book that doesn’t leave your mind and if you haven’t read it, you should read it as soon as possible because this book deserves to be known and to be appreciated.
