It Ends With Us

::Spoiler Free::

Colleen Hoover… This is not my first or even my second blog post about a book of hers that I have read, this is my third.  I have literally read every other book that she has written and I think I cried during most of them.

I tried to stayed away from reviews of “It Ends With Us” because I didn’t want to see any spoilers.  The only thing I knew about this book was that people were very emotional while reading it, but that isn’t saying much because most of her books are emotional.  I prepared myself for the water works to come, but they never did.

I just finished “It Ends With Us” and I DID NOT shed a tear.  DO YOU HEAR ME?  Not one.  There were multiple times while I was reading that I had to stop mid sentence because I knew what was getting ready to happen and I thought I would cry, but once I started back up I was able to make it through without crying.  How is that possible?  Everybody everywhere that has read this book said they cried but why didn’t I?


So as I sit here thinking back on the words that I just read I can’t figure out what is wrong with me.  Maybe I am still so enthralled in the book that is hasn’t hit me yet.  Maybe, like Lily, I am so engulfed by all of the emotions that I feel from reading this book that I have not completely processed them all.

This book shattered me.  I was completely heart broken and gutted to my core.  I felt intense love, sadness, hurt, anger, disappointment, frustration, hope, regret, compassion, hate, remorse, shame, grief stricken and pure torture while reading “It Ends With Us”.  How can I feel all of that from a book and still not cry?  I am a sap.  I cry during commercials for goodness sake.

Maybe that is the problem.  Maybe I am so emotionally raw after reading this book that I can not feel anything because I have gone through so much already!

So now that I have been completely wishy-washy and still don’t understand how I feel, I have realized one thing and one thing only and that is that I want to be Lily Bloom when I grow up! Brave and Bold!

P.S. I 100% think you should read this book!  I know my thoughts and review do nothing for this book, but it was so good that I can not even get my thoughts out.  MUST READ!

Love,

Bri
