Colleen Hoover: It Ends With Us

Colleen Hoover: It Ends With Us

Just wow, that is all that needs to be said about this beautifully written novel. 

Mrs. Colleen Hoover did it yet again and this time she brought more to the reader’s table. 

I can 99% guarantee that It Ends With Us is one of the most heart-touching and brutally honest books you will ever read in your life.

Let me just say that I don’t read, or at least until I picked up one of the ‘CoHo’, books thanks to #BookTok. 

One day is all it took for me to finish this read. ONE. DAY. And I DO NOT read EVER. It blew my mind at how addicted I became with the characters, places and events that took place throughout the novel. I will say this once and once only, READ. THIS. BOOK. NOW. 

I don’t want to spoil the entire book so instead of a traditional book review, I’ll leave you with some of my favorite quotes from her book. You can decide whether these draw you in and if they don’t, what’s wrong with you? Are you human?

 

“Sometimes it seems easier to just keep running in the same familiar circles, rather than facing the fear of jumping and possibly not landing on your feet.”

 

“There is no such thing as bad people. We’re all just people who sometimes do bad things.”

 

“I think about how sometimes, no matter how convinced you are that your life will turn out a certain way, all that certainty can be washed away with a simple change in tide. ”

 

“Preventing your heart from forgiving someone you love is actually a hell of a lot harder than simply forgiving them.”

 

“Just keep swimming.”

 

“I feel like everyone fakes who they really are, when deep down we’re all equal amounts of screwed up. Some of us are just better at hiding it than others.”

 

“In the future, if by some miracle you ever find yourself in the position to fall in love again . . . fall in love with me.”

 

“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.”

 

“Just because someone hurts you doesn’t mean you can simply stop loving them. It’s not a person’s actions that hurt the most. It’s the love. If there was no love attached to the action, the pain would be a little easier to bear.”

 

“Fifteen seconds. That’s all it takes to completely change everything about a person. Fifteen.”

 

“Naked truths aren’t always pretty.”

 

“Maybe love isn’t something that comes full circle. It just ebbs and flows, in and out, just like the people in our lives”

 

“Shouldn’t there be more distaste in our mouths for the abusers than for those who continue to love the abusers?”
