Top positive review
Beautiful, poignant, storytelling ... but have your tissues handy
Reviewed in the United States on August 19, 2020
As much as I would love for you to read my review, like it, share it, and all that good stuff, what you need to do--what you absolutely must do right now--is get a copy of Heart Bones and read Colleen Hoover's poignant, stirring, affirming book.
I'm not going to tell you about the plot or characters; this novel is best read not knowing any of those things. Go in as cold as you can so each paragraph, each line, can surprise you and move you. If you are new to Colleen's books, I urge you to have a stack of tissues handy before you turn to page one. (If you know her books, then you know. YOU KNOW.)
What will strike you is how real these characters are. How Colleen Hoover defies stereotypes. How each character feels like someone you are connected with or know. How one line from Colleen Hoover will make you weep harder than the entirety of other books.
Heart Bones battered and bruised my heart, slicing it to shreds. And then, because this is Colleen Hoover we're talking about, she healed me. She gave me hope, and she made me believe in the power of hope.
Read this book. Then hit up the comments and let me know your thoughts.
