All the hype and the long anticipated wait for release date is BEYOND worth it! I was shock to find out a few of my book sisters have not read any of Colleen’s books, but let me be the first to say, if you haven’t and have them all waiting on your TBR, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE read this first. I am even toying with the idea of forcing the hubby to read it (he is not a reader by all means – HA). However, he did mention he wanted to give reading a try again and what better story than It Ends With Us. This book truly is for everyone.
Personally, I think this is Colleen’s best work yet. I don’t want to go into the story any further. This book is best to go in blind. I even encourage you to not read the blurb if you haven’t already done so. Just trust me on this one. This story is truly something else. The first chapter hooked me, the second chapter starts chipping away at my heart and by the third chapter I found myself grinning and laughing like an idiot. Every page after that took my breath away through a range of emotions evoked within me. I even experienced a shock of a lifetime because never in my book world have I been blindsided the way I was with It Ends With Us. After reading the author’s note at the end, I realized that is exactly how the heroine felt herself. On that note, I have to say… I cried harder reading the author’s note than the book in its entirety. You will understand why when you get there.
Everything in this book is just pinned down with the factor of WOW! Out of all the heroines I have ‘met’ along the way, I have to say Lily Bloom captured my heart from the first few pages and by the end of the book she is the most admirable woman and someone I truly look up to.
Even at 3am after finishing this truly amazing story I could not fall asleep right away. This is the kind of story that NEEDS to be made into a movie to reach a broader audience since I know a lot of people choose not to read in general. The pictures in my head were crazy vivid as I absorbed each and every word. I cannot express how much this book has touched me in ways that I did not think possible.
Truly you guys, everyone needs to read this. It quickly became one of my favorite reads of 2016. There is a really strong message in this book that I hope everyone can take from it no matter what position in the situation they find themselves in. I am still thinking about it all and find myself questioning everything. This story brings in a whole new perspective of everything I strongly believe I would or would not take action to in a specific way in a given situation, but in reality if it was my life would I still be as adamant and sure of what I always thought I knew or believed in? GAHHHH!!!
Lastly, the title in itself IT ENDS WITH US… the moment it hit me of what the title truly means knocked the breath right out of me. By the end, the meaning of the title was confirmed let me tell you – it’s perfection!
Most importantly – READ IT!!!! PLEASE READ IT!!!
