It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover (Review)

One of my goals for this year was to read 12 books, which averaged a book a month. Whilst I knew this probably wasn’t going to happen at the start of the year, I knew I would always read more on holidays and potentially in stay at home annual leave too. On my trip to Jamaica, I read 4 books, which was honestly a little disappointing as a tool 7 books with me, but nevertheless, I enjoyed getting back into reading and thought I would share my reviews of the books starting with It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover. 

This story was bought for me by a friend for my birthday last year but it’s been on my to be read for a while. I really enjoyed the writing style; I loved how it was easy to read and addictive.

I was reading what I thought was a beautiful romantic story of two lovers, but I was surprised and shocked when the story took a turn. Having said that, the entire scenario was handled with honest raw truth and gentle grace, which truly explored the intimate details involved in a traumatic experience. You fall in love with all the characters, the good, the bad and the ugly. It makes you appreciate the perspective victims often have when they struggle to break out of the cycle. 

Now being made into a motion picture, I’m not quite sure I agree with the casting, but I am excited to see the translation onto the big screen. 

There is also a sequel novel out sharing one of the male lead characters perspective and I think a continuation of the story. I’m really excited to get my hands on that book too! The book ends on somewhat of a cliff hanger. A lot of authors would leave it to the readers imagination to complete the story, but I love that the questions will hopefully be answered.
