Hopeless by Colleen Hoover

Synopsis : 

Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you more hopeless than believing the lies…

That’s what seventeen-year-old Sky realizes after she meets Dean Holder. A guy with a reputation that rivals her own and an uncanny ability to invoke feelings in her she’s never had before. He terrifies her and captivates her all in the span of just one encounter, and something about the way he makes her feel sparks buried memories from a past that she wishes could just stay buried.

Sky struggles to keep him at a distance knowing he’s nothing but trouble, but Holder insists on learning everything about her. After finally caving to his unwavering pursuit, Sky soon finds that Holder isn’t at all who he’s been claiming to be. When the secrets he’s been keeping are finally revealed, every single facet of Sky’s life will change forever


The Review: 



On the last page a beautiful description is written about the author and the one I wholly agree with is HARDCORE REALIST.


This book is about a girl named Sky. It starts with how her friend Six and she hook up with people, sneak them in and out their bedroom windows. Six is moving away, so she insists that Sky should join public school. Being home schooled by her mother Karen all these years, Karen finds it hard but agrees to enroll Sky.


One day, Sky meets Holder. Dean Holder is said to be the bad boy but Sky doesn’t have that good a reputation either. So, I call it even. They soon find themselves attracted to each other. Sky begins to learn secrets of Holder’s past and she totally gets why he has such a bad name. But when more secrets begin to unveil before her eyes of her own past, Sky wishes she never knew any of it.


It’s a love story, a sad story and an eye opener to the evil that happens around us. I don’t think the right term is evil, but I can’t find any other word right now.

This book contains the following –

1. A bad boy with dimples.

2. Lots of tears.

3. Not many intimate scenes so I would recommend it for teens of and above the age of 16 years.

4. Ugly past.

5. Facing and  Dealing with the Ugly past 


This is one of shortest reviews because I don’t really wanna go in detail of every character. But I will say this: The book is an okay read. Not something you wanna buy. I would choose UGLY LOVE over this anytime. I read this book on my phone so I didn’t really get the feeling readers get when you hold a paperback or hardcover for that matter.

Anyhow, if you want to read it-go ahead and read it.



My Favorite Quotes/ Lines

The sky is always beautiful.Even when it’s dark or rainy or cloudy,it’s still beautiful to look at….it’ll be there no matter what…and I know it’ll always be beautiful.” 

“I want you to keep them open…because I need you to watch me give you the very last piece of my heart.” 


F#%k all the firsts, Sky. The only thing that matters to me with you are the forevers.” 


It’s real, Six. You can’t get mad at a real ending. Some of them are ugly. It’s the fake happily ever afters that should piss you off.”

    Awesome blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Cheers!
