Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

“Life is real and sometimes it’s ugly and you just have to learn how to cope”


I do enjoy some cutesy, mushy  young adult novels. But then there are just some that you hold dear in your heart because you know it changed you, made you shed tears you never expected, and made you realize so so much.

HOPELESS  gave me so much hope in so many ways…

Sky has a simple life. She is a girl everyone can relate to. She has some issues in life like a normal teenager. But everything turns upside down when the temperamental and swoony HOTBOD shows up.

“He’s one of those guys you know. The incredibly gorgeous guys who can have anyone, anytime, anywhere and they know it? The guys that, all they have to do is flash a crooked smile or a dimple and ask a girl her name and she melts until she’s on her knees in front of him? The guys that spend their Saturday nights climbing through windows?”

Dean Holder. Yup he is THAT guy. I’m dying to talk about him because it’s a crime not to. I mean, what’s the point of making a review if he isn’t in it? **SQUEEEE!!**  

Oh. YES. Totally Fangirl-worthy....

Holder has a bad rep, the rude boy whom every girl must steer clear of. He may be sound like a bad boy cliché but he definitely isn’t!

Both characters are adorable, broken but not beyond repair. I FELT them, their deep connection, their loss, their hurt, their love for each other. Sky and Holder represent every person out there who needs courage to go through life. And I know we all do. They made me see that you can’t let other people define who you are because what matters is what you think of yourself.

 AND … I am drawn to their relationship! I love their banters. Their so funny and cute together it’s hard not to burst into the giddiest squeal I could muster whenever Holder says some cheesy pick up line or when he’s being so cocky I wanted to give him some ego-inflating text. But he’s always been by her side. He’s so sweet and he loves Sky so much that it pains me to see how hurt he is when she should be the one feeling it.

“Fuck all the firsts, Sky. The only thing that matters to me with you are the forevers.”

If you haven’t read this, don’t just put this in your shelves!! as in CAPSLOCK READ THIS NOW!!!

This is not just your average romance story. The writing is utterly engaging. It was so smoothly written I couldn’t put it down! I was laughing one moment, then I was in total shock, and the next thing I know I am crying my heart out. It was an amazing experience. I actually have so many lines highlighted in my copy. I would’ve shared them all but I just don’t want to spoil them.

I am in awe of the author because… boy! I was hooked! …AGAIN! I am absolutely in love with “Slammed” and “Point of Retreat” but then this book just proves how right I am to put the author on a pedestal whenever I think of her. I live you! Nah! I love you! LOL Colleen Hoover! Every fiber of my being is screaming “I want more of your works!”

This is a great Christmas read EVERYONE!

My Rating: 5 of 5 stars!!
