“I’ll take the Lake”

I thought I’m gonna have a heart attack or faint or something. THAT’S HOW MUCH I LOVE COLLEEN HOOVER’S BOOKS.

Slammed.

Rating: 20/5.

I think it is pretty clear, since this is a Colleen Hoover book, that I’ve read it in a few hours. I found myself in the same situation as “I don’t know what to read, I’m gonna get myself a cup of Colleen Hoover” which turned into 2 cups cause I HAD to read the next one too because I didn’t calm down with it.

I love both Layken and Will. I love Will more though, he kinda reminds me of Jim Halpert’s character from The Office. Always funny and cute and smart.

I was impressed by the idea of slamming. I didn’t know that it is actually a thing, initially I thought Colleen came up with the idea but afterwards I found out that people are actually doing it. And I love it. Also, I think it was awesome that Colleen actually wrote the slams the characters performed and I loooved theeeem!

Colleen has some really awesome ideas, like the glass vase full of life tips stars to help them when they need it the most when they won’t have anyone else besides them and their brothers (and Will’s grandparents).

By the end of the book my chest was aching. Literally. And then I couldn’t stop thinking about them. And then I’ve read the second book. Review to come.

As a conclusion, YES GO READ IT!!

Playlist for the Dead

Playlist for the Dead by Michelle Falkoff is an easy to read book and even though it’s based on a suicide story, I like the fact that it doesn’t focus only on the main character’s feelings.
