Ebook, 250 Pages
Thriller/ Romance/ Suspense
By: Colleen Hoover
“Most people come to New York to be discovered. The rest of us come here to hide”
🌟 Since I read “It Ends with Us” by CoHo I became an instant fan and wanted to discover her other works, and although I read all her latest releases after that book (without Merit, All your perfects) that novel is still my favorite book by her.
🌟 I didn’t want to read Verity at first because I wasn’t getting the rush that I experienced while reading It Ends With Us! The synopsis sounded intriguing but I thought that I have read similar things before and wanted to skip it. A few days after the release of the book, Reviews started going around and all were positive reviews! The book is 250 pages long so I said “why not?!” at last and started reading it.
🌟 WTF Colleen???
You are supposed to write fluffy romances with important messages. I didn’t expect something that dark and creepy. This is like the next “Gone Girl”!
I don’t think I read anything in the “Suspense Romance” genre but it was a great experience.
🌟 The writing was good as usual but it had a different voice and that was important for the story. I never expected Colleen to venture into this territory and I never expected the outcome to be this good either. Colleen proved herself as a formidable author in different subgenres with this.
“As much as I try to forget where it all started to go wrong, I was cursed with this mind that never forgets a single thing.”
🌟 The characters were realistic and creepy (How many times do I have to say that this book is creepy? Because it is!). I found it hard to root for any of them because the twists and atmosphere makes it hard to trust anyone!
🌟 Plot wise, it was also eerie and so gripping. I put a lot of theories in mind and I came very close to the actual twist but Colleen did it differently and it is hard to explain what I mean without spoilers so I am going to skip the explanation here. I also liked that the MC was an author and that Colleen gave us some insight into writing and publishing. It was great to know these things from one of the big names in the industry.
🌟 Everyone were talking about the ending and I think it was a strong ending too! It was scary and I still don’t know what to think because this is the kind of books that effs you up and leaves you thinking about it for while!
🌟 Summary: This is not the typical CoHo romance book. It is even an indie work and not by CoHo’s usual publisher and that made it even more brilliant. I think it is better to go into this without knowing much which is my general rule when reading thrillers. Don’t worry though because big chances are that you will enjoy this. I ended up giving it 4 out of 5 stars.
🌟 Prescription: For fans of Gillian Flynn and darker thrillers.
