Hopeless (Hopeless, #1)Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

August. Yep, Hopeless by Colleen Hoover is the first book that I've read for the month of August. I hate myself for that. Balancing my real life problems (LOADS OF IT) and my online/The Mortal Instruments Philippines problems (LOADS OF IT AGAIN) is really hard. I truly know that I need to focus on those stuff before reading books or else... Shadowhunters might kill me ! But here you go, I have one right now.

So, Hopeless is also the first book that I've read written by Colleen (I'm such a loser!). I loved it, it didn't disappoint me and I'll be pretty much hunting down her other books. Ha!

The story. Gahhhh! UNPREDICTABLE . I love how she inserts hints, hints that you can't still make out anything of the entirety of the story. While reading the book, I was like "is this going to be the climax of the story orrrrr?", "is this just a mini bump of the story and there's gonna be a bigger bump or something later?" , "is it?", "huwattttt?! and other loads of questions running through my mind. There was also a time when I was freakin' scared to flip a page, 'cause yeah climax (or not @_@) - too much emotions!

In a serious note, I like how the story is very relatable. Maybe someone's in the exact position as to Sky and Karen right now or in a down scale someone could be experiencing physical, emotional, mental stress. This book just teaches how people can deal with the dark phase of his/her life for it has so much about life, love and the relationship we build towards the people that surrounds us. Like, there's this particular scene in the book where Holder asked Sky to do something that could prolly help her out face her problem/past, and I tell you guys, it was a great scene. (Must read!)

The characters. Sky/Hope, at first I was like "oooookay gurl, why u like that?" and "meeeehhhh" but as the story progresses.. You'll get to realize that she's helluva strong girl . Eventhough, she's thrust in to these messy situations, Sky manages to face it and decide on what's going to happen next on her life. (Thanks to Holder for the moral support!)

What Holder can say about Sky:

"Think about how much courage it took you to laugh again after everything that happened to you. And your heart…” “How your heart can possibly find a way to love and trust a man again proves that I’ve fallen in love with the bravest woman I’ve ever known."


DEAN HOLDER AHDHEUEIUWHDYE! Everytime Dean says 'baby', I die! He's just Sky's personal cheerer. He's always there for her - shoulder to cry on, help her get through her problems, someone who loves her dearly *sighs* iz the perfect guy already. Not to mention, he just says the perfect lines. *flailing*

This one: "When you become mine, it’ll be a forever thing. I’ve told you before that the only thing that matters to me with you are the forevers, and I mean that."

Oh yeah, melt with me. *swoons again*

I was utterly shocked about Karen's character back story. I thought that she just have a mental problem going on which led her to abduct Sky. But it goes wayyyyyy deeper than that. My jaw dropped on the floor when she was telling Sky about it. And oh dear her intentions of pushing through with her actions. That part of the book was just soooo good.

I also loved the lines spoken by the characters and I saved some of those down. Quotable quotes it is.

For people planning to get married, here's a quote for you from Dean Holder: “All marriages have a time limit if you enter them for the wrong reasons. Marriage doesn’t get easier…it only gets harder. If you marry someone hoping it will improve things, you might as well set your timer the second you say, ‘I do.’”

This quite a lengthy review-ish already, so babye!
