It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?


~~~

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly event on my blog; So Many Books So Little Time. This is where book bloggers and readers gather to talk about what books they’ve read and/or reviewed last week, what books they’re currently reading and what books they’re planning to read. This is a great way to organise/plan our reading week/month, and to take a sneak peek at what others are reading. Usually Posted on Monday’s.

Hello, bookish lovelies! 📚 Good Morning & How was your weekend?!

Sooo today, I was thinking that I should post one of these! I know, I know I haven’t posted one of these in forever! Lately I’ve been really disorganized or rather, I’ve been feeling disorganized, with my blog, and TBR list. And in the past I found that this was a good way to keep track of everything, as well as kind of decide what books I should read next (I have so many books, on my shelf that I have not read & I keep buying more, soo it’s really hard to pick sometimes 🙊).

So, yeah, I might start making this a weekly thing, or bi-weekly, I’m not too sure yet. Most likely bi-weekly because I’m a slowww reader xD, okay, maybe not that slow? It takes me about 4 days (about 1.5 – 2hrs each day) to read one book, sometimes longer, especially if it’s a good book and I don’t want it to end. Mhmm, do you think that’s slow? 🤔 Haha.

In this post, I’m just going to share the books I’ve read in the past few months; I mean if I share everything I’ve read this year, this post will be wayyy too long (2017 Reads)! As well as some of the books I’m thinking of reading next! And maybe y’all can help me pick! 😍💕

Also, I’d love to know what you’re reading!

Anyways, on to the book part of this post! 🤩😍📚

    • V Games by Caroline Peckham | ARC | Goodreads
    • Vassa in the Night by Sarah Porter | Goodreads
    • The Mostly True Story of Jack by Kelley Barnhill | Goodread

I got an ARC for V Games about 2 weeks ago, and I don’t know why it took me so long to read it! Today is the release day! Although, I’m only 96% finished it and I’ve already reviewed it because I wanted/needed to post before the release day.

I got The Mostly True Story of Jack by Kelley Barnhill a couple of days ago. It’s not the type of book I would usually pick, but the cover and the green colour in the cover is soo pretty, I had to buy it. Lol. Yeah I know you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover… but I know we’re all guilty of it!🙊

✨What book(s) have you bought purely because of the cover? ✨

Happy Monday & Happy Reading!

{Review} It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover

~Description~

SOMETIMES THE ONE WHO LOVES YOU IS THE ONE WHO HURTS YOU THE MOST

Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up – she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.

Ryle is assertive, stubborn, and maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily, but Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing.

As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan – her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

With this bold and deeply personal novel, Colleen Hoover delivers a heart-wrenching story that breaks exciting new ground for her as a writer. It Ends With Us is an unforgettable tale of love that comes at the ultimate price.

This book contains graphic scenes and very sensitive subject matter.

~Review~

Wow this book. What an emotional journey. This was one of the hardest and most raw books I’ve ever read. It was so real and riveting. I couldn’t get enough of it. I couldn’t stop reading yet I didn’t want to keep reading. Such a different experience. Reading a Colleen Hoover book is like going through an eye opening journey and this one was no different and was one of the hardest but most worthwhile to battle through. This is an extremely powerful story and it’s not what most people will be expecting. It gets its power from the singular first person narrative and we experience everything through Lily’s eyes. When she falls in love, we fall in love; when her heart is broken, our heart is broken; when she gets it all wrong, so do we.

I cannot stress how important and damn smart this book is. There is no black and white characterization – it’s much deeper and more complex than that, and therefore, far more emotional. It peels back the layers of characters and relationships to do something that so many other authors have tried and failed to do – to make you understand a situation that for most people makes no sense. It’s very sad, painful and exceptionally honest. My heart hurt while reading it and I almost cried several times.

The way that Colleen Hoover writes puts you right in the situation that Lily is in head first and makes you fall in love with both Ryle and Atlas. And it’s so twisted because of the kind of guy one of them turns out to be. In between this passionate love story that’s going on with Ryle and Lily we get these sweet innocent flashbacks of a life with a sixteen year old Lily and Atlas. Atlas who is this homeless boy who finds hope and a home in Lily. And Lily who is living a nightmare of home life and seeks comfort in him. Those stories were my favorite.

So perfect! I loved these characters, loved their history and their flaws and strengths. And the ending…..I have no words. Beautiful and bittersweet in the same breath. This novel is why CoHo is my favorite author. She tells stories in such a way that it makes you fell every emotion.  I highly recommend it!

#1:

“He pulls back to look down at me and when he sees my tears, he brings his hands up to my cheeks. “In the future… if by some miracle you ever find yourself in the position to fall in love again… fall in love with me.”

#2:

“Life is a funny thing. We only get so many years to live it, so we have to do everything we can to make sure those years are as full as they can be. We shouldn’t waste time on things that might happen someday, or maybe even never.”

#3:

“You can stop swimming now, Lily. We finally reached the shore.”
