Review: Verity

WARNING: Here there be spoilers — I have an unpopular opinion (I know, big surprise). I think Colleen Hoover is a miserable contemporary fiction writer. In fact, I’d go so far as to say she’s a pretty miserable writer in general. But Verity was different from the other four of her books I’ve read (thoseContinue reading “Review: Verity”

I’ve now read five of Colleen Hoover’s books and the only two I remotely liked were Heart Bones and Verity. I couldn’t stand UglyContinue reading “Review: It Ends With Us”
