Hey readers! How have you guys been, so apparently I haven't been reading a lot of books that I wanted to review, and also, I was in a reading slump in the past few months during my holidays in which I didn't read a lot. Maybe because I was procrastinating, but let me just blame it on the reading slump.
Alright, let me just get started with this review now, and less rambling about my reading for now.
PS. This post was supposed to be up in like a few months back when I finished reading the book, but I guess it's better late than never, right? SO LET'S GET STARTED!!
Rating: 5/5 stars
Thought on the book:
This book was EVERYTHING that I was looking for. It was just amazing, a really good sense of plot in the writing, and even the characters make you fall in love with the book. You can't help but want more of this book, which is exactly what happened to me. But no, seriously, if you guys haven't pick up this book, or never even tried reading Colleen Hoover's books, let's be real, what have you been doing! Just pick it up, read that first sentence, and I can promise you that you will be BLOWN AWAY by how mesmerising this book is.
It just captivates your heart, your mind and your soul, and it consumes you, tears your heart, but meld it all back with the cute and beautiful romance that you are waiting for your entire life.
This by far, might be one of my favourite CoHo's book, and until now I can still remember the book so well.
This book has like the most interesting events and some of the quotes really stood in my head, even after reading this book, this book has already changed my life, with all the self-love, trying to show you that even though you might have a part of you that you want to hide from the society, as long as that confidence in you is still there, you can do whatever you want! Sure, our main character has a huge flaw shown on her body, and she wants to hide it from everyone, and she hates how her looks affected her everyday life, but when she slowly gains her confidence with the help of her new friend, she realised that "hey, as long as I think I am beautiful, I can rock this world!"
Okay, so in this book, there are some parts of the story that made me really angry, yet sympathize the characters, as the story slowly unfolds itself.
The cool thing about this book is the way it was written, it teases you with a bit of what might have been the reason that caused the accident, but then it just walks off like nobody's business, and it just leaves you hanging like "Wait, what?! GET BACK HERE!" and you starts to scream at the book, and you have the biggest urge to just throw this book at the wall, but then you pick it up and continue reading, and the cycle just repeats itself, and you willingly let your heart get hurt and shape it back and gets hurt again. (*cough* I never learn my lesson. Ever. *cough*)
This book does this teasing and taunting to get your attention every time, and you just want more, you want to know what exactly happens in the book, and you get it! Finally! But it will only be revealed...
At. The. End. Of. The. Book.
Although it sounds like a hardship and a really long journey to get to the end to know the real ending and the whole reason, it just felt so worth it because you have read everything all the way from the start, knowing nothing at all like Fallon, which by the way is our main character, and you just discover bits and pieces of the truth with her! What a journey, right? This might be why I fell in love with this book, mostly because of the style of writing.
So would I recommend you guys to go pick this book up?
YES! Although I do not encourage the actions done in this book by the characters, but it is all fictional, and it is meant to be a form of enjoyment, not to make you follow the actions, duh! But putting all the harm aside, and just reading it for the sake of reading and having fun, then yeah! Definitely pick this bad boy up! You might also find yourself a new book boyfriend after this!!! HAHA!
Alright, so if you haven't pick the book up, go read it! And stay away from the following paragraph because they are full of spoilers! Come back only when you are done reading!
BYE NON SPOILERS!
SHORT SPOILER HERE!
So first off, the ending, it was a whole thrill of experience and I had wanted nothing more than to just throw the book out that window and curl myself up into a ball and cry out loud, because this book has just ruined me, both inside and outside. I never knew that the truth could be so harsh and so hurting. I really could relate myself with Fallon, and I know how she feels, and I should hate Ben for all this, but after reading about why Ben was the whole cause of everything, it makes me even sadder, but I can understand why he did what he did, and I know it's wrong for him to do that, but still... I CAN FEEL FOR HIM!
Oh and also, when Ben did a tattoo on himself just to remind himself of what true love is, and how his mother had a tattoo on herself for the exact reason, was just the most perfect thing ever. It got me thinking that maybe I shouldn't get a tattoo on myself until I really truly experienced what is true love, to make me remember it my whole life, but who knows?
And I definitely love the part where Fallon tells Ben that her mom told her to not date until she was 23 years old, and since she was still 18, they both had to wait 5 more years before they can get together. It was just the best thing in this book ever, and most probably one of my favourite part in this entire book. I can just relate so much to this part of the book, because I'm from an asian family, and my parents are really not very okay with me dating so early in my life, and I have been following my parents wishes because as they say, "parents know the best for their children"!
End of spoiler!
Well I guess this is my spoiler (real short), but I don't know what else to say, like that short part feels super spoiler-y to me already, hahaha!
Alright, so I will just end this blog post here, I will definitely write more when I read more books, but lately, I haven't been reading all that much! Hmm, I wonder why? (*cough* games and drama and school *cough*)
I will see you guys next time, hopefully soon!
