TBR Tuesday #17

Screen Shot 2016-04-10 at 10.22.37 PM

Hello reader/s! I hope you’re well! For a while now, I’ve been writing a weekly or bi-weekly post about books that are on my TBR. TBR, if you don’t know is the abbreviation for To Be Read. My goal here is to shed some light on books that I’ve otherwise forgotten about. These books could be books I’ve been meaning to read from the library, or books that have been collecting dust on my shelves at home. My goal though is to say a little about the book and also give a little reasoning of why I want to read them.

Wow, it’s been so long since I’ve posted a TBR Tuesday! How are you? It’s been getting colder and colder every day this Autumn. I don’t remember being this cold this time of year last year! And my window blinds are still broken, so the cold seeps into my room making it even colder than it actually is. Now, I know you’re here for the books, so lets get onto talking about books!

This weeks books are two books that I’ve been wary about for a while now. One is a Science Fiction book, and the other a New Adult/ Young Adult Fiction novel. In my opinion, they’re both pretty popular! I’ve seen them all over the internet (aka, tumblr). Continue reading

It Ends With Us, by Colleen Hoover | Book Review #149


Sometimes it is the one who loves you 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, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.

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.

Trigger Warning: Suicide Mention, Gun Mention, Abuse, Attempted Rape

Let me just start this off with: I enjoyed this book. I managed to read the entirety of It Ends With Us just under (or a little over) 4 hours. Lily is a great character who we see through many different situations. Ryle is a character who is a interesting; with some series faults. Together Lily and Ryle are good; they’re really good with each other. There were some instances though, that had the two of them at odds; the instances I’m talking about are very serious.

By the time I finished reading the book, I had gone through a large variety of emotions that seem to come along with reading any of Hoover’s books. I teared up nearing the end of It Ends With Us, which doesn’t happen to me that often.

“Cycles exist because they are excruciating to break.”

I absolutely love this quote. It’s true that cycles exist because they’re excruciating to break. They can be extremely hard to break, and the fact that this quote stuck out the most to me screams volumes at me.

Nearing the end of the book, and the end of the book was incredibly poignant to me. Yet, as sad as the ending is, the way that everything turned out to be, is incredibly important.

The rest of this review will contain spoilers. Continue reading
