Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover
“I’ve loved Hope since we were kids. But tonight? Tonight I fell in love with Sky.”
Losing Hope was a book I told myself at the beginning of 2015 that I would read this year. I just didn’t realize I’d wait until the year was finally over to read it. But New Year’s Resolution partially accomplished! Got a few more books to read to do so.
It’s been a while since I read Hopeless, and that went in my favor when reading this book. Because it had been almost 2 years since reading the first book, reading from Holder’s point of view was a fresh perspective and didn’t feel like a reread of a book I already read.
“All those nights you held me and just let me cry . . . you have no idea how many times you’ve already saved me.”
My favorite part was Holder’s letters he wrote, they were an easy way to show what he was thinking without it being entirely inner monologue. I also got to see Hope/Sky through new eyes and view Holder’s struggles with his decisions.
In a way I am sad and glad I waited so long to read this book. Sad because it’s really good but glad for reasons stated above, it was like reading something new. I recommend this book to all Colleen Hoover and Hopeless fans, it’s a real treat for those who love her books.
“I’ve learned over the past year what it really means to be able to miss someone. In order to miss someone, that means you were privileged enough to have them in your life to begin with.”
