My Current Favorite Author--Colleen Hoover

I realized I did not share any of the books I read for my 2016 Reading Challenge.  My goal was 52 books...I read 55!!  

(Note--Last January, my daughter went off to college and my son was already off to college, so I think reading was my outlet out of reality...my outlet to not be sad that my kids were gone.)

One of the first books I came across last January was Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover and so began my obsession to read all her books and I did--all in 1 year. (16 of my 55 books).  

I've rated her books in order of my favorites.

1. Confess--OMG! Loved the idea of his work!

2. It Ends with Us--You have to read the end letter/dedication to her mother.

4. & 5. Hopeless/Losing Hope--These are 2 book but the same story told from different perspectives.  Must read in this order

6. November 9--Keeps you wanting more.

7. Maybe Someday--Loved the interesting shock towards the beginning.  I didn't really care for the theme in the book, but it was still good.

8. 9. & 10. Slammed/Point of Retreat/This Girl--Must be read in this order.  Very cute love story.

11. Finding Cinderella--This has to be read after the Hopeless series.  It is a cute novella :)

12. Maybe Not--This has to be read after Maybe Someday.  Again, just a cute novella

13. 14. & 15. Never Never (3 parts--combined 300 pages)--This one was ok, but a little too much voodoo unrealistic for my taste.

16. Too Late--I never hate a book because if an author has taken the time to write a book, I try to love it...but this one was pretty dark and I didn't really like it.

Now, I cannot wait for her next book--unfortunately it won't be out until the end of the year!  Until then, I am rereading Confess...and maybe a few more of her books again since I have not found a book to captivate me yet this year.

My 2017 Reading Challenge is 12 books because I really need to do other stuff than read :)

You can find all the books I read in 2016 on my Goodreads profile.

Thank you for reading :)

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I love to read your comments! I usually reply to all comments, but I don't think a notification is given once I reply.

Also, I have been told that sometimes the comments do not show up...I do not know why that is...if it doesn't show up, then I don't see them.

Unless it is spam...I do not delete any comments. :(
