My Thoughts

Colleen Hoover. I´ve been a huge fan of hers since 2012 and have read everything that woman has ever published. From `Hopeless` ( which had me balling my eyes out like I´ve never done before in my life ) to her recent book `It Ends With Us` ( insert a million hearts ).. I´ve read them all. She´s been like the storytelling Goddess of romance for me. Her stories are a mixture of light and heavy, sending her readers ( in this case, me) on devastating, emotional rides that stick for a long time ( I have yet to recover from `Slammed`. That story drained the life out of me and had me in a funk for days.)

I read `Too Late` on Wattpad before it was taken down for publication purpose.

The warning above is justifiable. Even if this is a CoHo story it´s definitely different from the authors other works. Definitely written for a more mature audience.

`Too Late` was cool. It was dark, unforgiving, captivating, exciting, shocking and filled with tension. I love me some CoHo reads but this one is off the charts brilliant. Totally my kind of read!

2 undercover cops, 1 schizophrenic-obsessive-drug dealer boyfriend and a girl in between. WHAT A STORY and it´s told in true Colleen Hoover style!

I loved it.

I loved that the story had a 21 Jump Street vibe, I loved the twist of events that occured, I loved the heavy emotions, and above all…. I loved how the author was able to turn a normal thing like holding hands into something totally passionate ( The holding hands under the table was AWESOME) Oh. My. Lord. My heart was fluttering like crazy during that scene.

( Note: I´ve been trying to get my husband to recreate that scene with me but he´s doing it ALL WRONG! * sob *)

The end actually ended with a big ass BAM! Although it was a bit different from what I´m used to from the author I still loved it. Go big, or go home, right? Colleen Hoover left with a damn BAM!

`Too Late` is a mandatory read for any Colleen Hoover fan. For anyone who isn´t familiar with the authors work I´d advise you to start reading her stories because they´re definitely an experience no romance reader should miss out on. It´s romantic, it´s twisted, it´s kind and unmerciful, it´s powerful.

The Cover – 5 stars ( It fits with the story and THANKFULLY doesn´t give anything away. )

The Story – 5 stars ( Sheesh, gonna take a while to get that one out of my system)

The Characters – 5 stars ( I loved them all but felt the strongest towards Asa. He was, by far, the most twisted mofo I´ve ever came across in a book)

MY emotional state after finishing this read Recovery is going to be a mean bitch. Lol

I´m giving `Too Late` by Colleen Hoover 5 out of 5 stars

My Bookworm Box Arrived!

I´m going to mark my calendar today because, at last, I got my very first Bookworm Box. Oh, yes. After 29 long days of harrassing the mailman he finally showed up with a purple package full of book stuff just for me!

This is my first go with The Bookworm Box. To be honest- I´ve been wanting to subscribe and get a box for almost a year now but I constantly forgot it ( I swear, if my head wasn´t screwed on…. )

Anyways- It arrived today and the first thing I had to do was hide the package.

You see, I have 2 girls ( 5 yrs and 9 yrs) and color matters for my girls. It plays such an important roll in their lives. Anything purple, pink or neon is accepted. They´re also master thieves and can be vicious little witches when it comes to mommy´s stuff. Opening a purple box infront of them would cause a small war.

For 6 painful hours I waited for them to go to bed so I could open “the purple box” a.k.a “Mommy´s Box”.

It felt like Christmas and my birthday when I lifted the lid. WOOT WOOT! And I had the time of my life combing through all the goodies inside ( alone, not wanting my husband to witness my awrkward book celebration moment. Video of that moment can be seen here)

The package was filled with:

  • swag ( from authors: Marcia Boudreaux, Golden Czermak, Angela Corbett, Erin Noelle, Ophelia London, Lindsay Emory, Alexandra Haughton, Gabbie S. Duran, Kim Carmichael, Jodie Larson, Sabrina York)
  • swag from The Bookworm Box ( keychain, bracelet, and a pen)
  • 2 signed paperback copies ( Ready to Fall by Daisy Prescott, Unwritten by Chelsea M. Cameron)

Seriously- I´m a happy camper! I always welcome swag in any form and having signed paperbacks is like winning the Jackpot for me.

 

All in all- not a bad deal for $ 39.99. The Bookworm Box is about spreading the good, so 100% of the profit after overhead costs are donated to different charities each month.Which is in my opinion a good thing. It´s actually a win / win / win  situation. Authors are happy about the word being spread, readers receive great swag + signed copies plus charity is involved. Awesome stuff, if you ask me.

 

I can fully recommend purchasing a package from The Bookworm Box
