“I’ll love you forever. Even when I can’t.”
“And I’ll love you forever. Even when I shouldn’t.”
Now that, ladies and gentleman, is how you write a book!
Where do I even begin? Where do I find the words to express such perfection? How does she create these characters you INSTANTLY fall in love with? It’s been a while since I started to read a book, and it sucked me in so much from the start that I wanted to bypass all human interaction until I was finished.
The way the concepts of confessions and fate were woven into the story was genius. I love how the confessions mentioned throughout the story were actual confessions submitted by fans. I absolutely was in awe of the artwork that was featured. And I adored the inner monologues of Owen and Auburn. And the fact that their slight “insta-love” was so believable is a testament to the amazing-ness that is Colleen Hoover’s writing. The way she writes is simply flawless.
“I didn’t think seeing her would hurt this much. Every part of me hurts. My arms ache to hold her. My mouth aches to touch hers. My heart aches to love hers.”
These characters she created were the most amazing, selfless, lovable characters I have ever come across. I really don’t have any other words to express my love for this book. IT WAS PURE PERFECTION.
“This is what I want you to remember, Auburn,” he says softly. “I don’t want you to remember what it feels like when I’m inside you. I want you to remember how it feels when I look at you.”
And in the spirit of the confessions theme, here is mine: I kind of hate Colleen Hoover right now, because I truly don’t know how I am going to move on from this book. I may need to read this every day for the rest of my life. In the words of Auburn, I officially have an Owen hangover.
