Well it's probably been two weeks since I read IEWU and it is still taking up space in my head.
It was a one day read for me. I started it after breakfast and finished it long before bedtime.
I went into it 100% blind. I stayed away from any info about it because I didn't want to know anything about it besides the name, what the cover looked liked & that CoHo wrote it. That's all I needed to know & in I went.
I've seen mostly 5 star reviews & I've seen a few low star ratings & reviews. Yes mine is a 5 star but I could see how this book could have a totally different effect on someone else. This is a very intense read. It's not a sweet boy meets girl, they fall in love and a happily ever after. If that's what you are looking to read then just bypass this one.
This book messed with my head (it still is). I wanted to scream out in frustration, how could she do that to this character or that one. But not all books are the same & this book is like nothing I've read before. It will haunt you for a long time, it will make your head spin and I hope it will leave you taking away from this book the brilliance that is Colleen Hoover. She has shared that this book was very personal & that it was not an easy thing to write. I can totally see where she is coming from and I applaud her for doing so.
Ms. Hoover has been very forthcoming that this book may have triggers for many but she did not want the main point in the book to be shared in the blurb. If you think you may have an issue with reading this but would like to, just drop her a message. She has posted that she will give insight into it for any one who request it. Don't dismiss for this reason alone. You could miss out on a fantastic read.
I know this will be a book I will return to repeatedly. I'm already thinking I will have to reread it again soon. Now if I could just get my hands on a signed copy all would be right in my book world. Thanks Colleen for the amazing read :)
