Hopeless

Hopeless
by: Colleen Hoover
Should you read it?:Maybe
...if you are a fan of New Adult books in general and just want a quick read.
Category: New Adult

This falls in that category where it's between high school and adulthood. I think some elements are too risque to be considered Young Adult. It's a new and upcoming category known as New Adult, which is aimed at the 18-25 year old age bracket.

I finished Hopeless in less than 24 hours. It was ok. I mean, on the one hand I must've liked it because I finished it so quickly. Literally couldn't put it down! But on the other hand, now that I've finished it, I just don't think it was the best. For one thing, it was a little more risque than I usually like to read. Nothing too bad, but just more than I usually go for. I also wasn't crazy about reading what happened to the characters - and by that I mean it's very sad. It's about abuse and stuff and I didn't totally realize that before I started it. I got it for free on Amazon and I figured I'd give it a shot. Again, if you're looking for a quick read, this is great for that, but don't expect to be blown away by great literature or anything.

Things I Liked
It's definitely got the heat between the characters that keeps you reading.

Another bad guy gone good: Dean Holder. Expect this a lot. I liked him.

Things I didn't
I just found it really sad and I wasn't expecting that. I didn't know that was what it was going to be about when I started it.

Overall: Quick read, but sad.

Book 5 of 50
