Today is a good day. Want to know why? It’s the last day we have to wait for the anticipated THIS GIRL by the lovely Colleen Hoover! I’m so freakin’ excited that I can barely contain myself!
Above is the new covers of all three books and I’m so in love with them! They are perfect! The old ones were unbelievable too!
Since THIS GIRL will be debuting tomorrow I want to go back over SLAMMED and POINT OF RETREAT. I fell in love with Ms. Hoover the moment I picked up SLAMMED and I’ve been hopelessly Facebook/twitter/and every other social media site stalking her ever since! She is an amazing author and anyone who reads her work will become obsessed with her characters! Here is her bio from her website that you can go to here:
As you can see, SLAMMED is the first book in the series and it is here we are introduced to Layken who has had to move from the only home she’s ever known with her mother and brother after the recent death of her father. That’s where she meets Will, her neighbor, and begin a friendship that would soon turn into something more.
SLAMMED knocked me off my feet. It was emotional, passionate, and shock all wrapped up into this pretty package with even prettier poems. I laughed, cried, shouted, and nearly threw my ipad a few times while reading this. Ms. Hoover took me to places I didn’t want to go because it was just some emotionally wrecking but in the end I loved it and wanted more..I craved more Layken and Will.
Then POINT OF RETREAT came out and I knew I would be hooked in the way I was with SLAMMED and I was…completely!! In POINT OF RETREAT Will and Layken have to fight for each other, hard. At times, I felt that it would all fall apart but then her mother would have ‘words of wisdom’ and everything would make sense. I didn’t think I could cry any harder than I did when I read SLAMMED but oh, I was wrong. POINT OF RETREAT had my heart breaking and then filling up with love again. It was a never ending circle, and I hated that it had to end.
Again, I can’t express how excited I am that THIS GIRL will be out tomorrow!! I’ve got it pre-ordered and I can promise you that I’ll have it done within 24 hours. When I do get it done be expecting a review/rant/rave! For those of you who haven’t read the first two books of this emotionally packed beautiful series I suggest ya’ll get over to b&n or Amazon or any other bookstore around and get them because you are definitely missing out!
