I loved this one way more than the first one, but only because I appreciated the story line and their story a lot.
Overall a good read! I did think it was sort of rushed at the end. In my opinion, I don‘t think that Ryle would have been that civil and was kind of expecting something else to happen instead of Marshall just having a calm interaction handing over Emmy to Atlas as Ryle just sat in the car. Also another time jump that went straight to the wedding? You can‘t tell me Ryle wouldn‘t have interjected at any point in that time frame.
Had a fabulous month of reading! 16 books read, which is a lot for me. #januarywrapup
Also, #jumpstart2023 was again, such a help in kicking off the year and my reading challenges! Completed 9 prompts for #booked2023 and 11 for #pop23 (there was some overlap). Thank you @Clwojick and @Lizpixie for hosting!
I‘m not normally one to bail on a book. But I just couldn‘t carry on with this one. I read It Ends with us and wasn‘t overwhelmed but enjoyed the story telling at least. This however just felt totally unnecessary, predictable and quite cringy. I know some people are obsessed by Colleen Hoover but I just don‘t get it 🤷🏻♀️
I absolutely loved unraveling the rediscovery of a teenage love. The depths of the love between Lily and Atlas are not your typical teenage young love. There is a profound adoration for who they are as individuals and what they mean to each other. This book is a testament to love is patient and demonstrates unconditional love.
people who say Colleen Hoover is overrated and her books are overhyped are wrong. This book lives up to all the expectations I had before I started reading. The book is perfectly written which makes it easy to read and you can't stop. I adore Lilly in a way that cannot be described, how she is so strong yet dares to be vulnerable is so amazing and there is nothing bad to say about Atlas. He is described as the most perfect guy and I can‘t complain
Well, I waited to start IT ENDS WITH US until this one was on my shelf (and I was sure there wouldn‘t be a matching BOTM edition), because I know me. I finished the first one and with a laugh told myself I would just read one chapter of this before bed… instead, I stayed up way late and read the whole thing in one sitting! I loved the story continuing (and want it to keep going), and just enjoy these characters all. A great sequel!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ It‘s wild that #CoHo only wrote this sequel because myriad fans continually demanded it on social media; a bit disconcerting, but also pretty incredible. I‘m happy to report it‘s one of her best. It‘s Lily and Atlas but with a broader scope. She addresses many complicated, but believable, situations. She did not, however, explain the name Ryle. WTF is that?? Yes, I‘ve been holding onto that since book one …
November 21, 2022 LILY and ATLAS. ATLAS and LILY. What can i say except for the fact that they both love each other and love will never cease between them. Seeing how they are so in love makes me happy for them. Fun fact: If they were real people, I would totally want to meet them and say how special their relationship is. Colleen Hoover, well done 5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️👏🏻
November 21, 2022 5 MORE CHAPTERS TO GO!!!! Reading about how Josh (the brother that Atlas did not existed) reacted to Atlas mentioning that he was able to out where Tim (their dad) lives was a shock. But once Atlas drove Josh to go visit him in Vermont, Josh was too hesitant and kept debating whether he really wanted to see his dad. He felt it was a good bonding moment... but nope. He calls his dad an "asshole" and they both leave to go home
Whether it's philosophical paulo coelho or twisted love story by collen hoover or some kind of thriller by Alex but they all are my obsession,I could not sleep without kowing how a story would conclude. Sometimes they sleep besides me .I think I am deeply in love with 📚 books.
Hi 👋 this is K new on litsy
Hope you all crazy like me for books.
November 19, 2022 Almost to the end of the book! Ryle is so annoying... that is all I can say. He keeps getting in the way of Lily and Atlas' relationship. They are officially together because Ryle is a hazard to her and Emerson. I agree 100% that Lily made the right choice to keep Emerson away from Ryle based on his negative attitude.
A story written for the fans…who doesn‘t love that? I will say that I wasn‘t as invested in the “romance” but I‘m certain that‘s on me, not the writing…I‘ve become too jaded, lately. Maybe, it‘s all those mystery thrillers I‘m listening to, they‘ve made me too dark for all that ‘love‘ shit. Although I am waiting, rather impatiently, for Coho to write another thriller.
November 12, 2022 Almost done with Chapter 12 and Ryle is causing trouble. Whenever Lily goes to visit Alyssa and Marshall, she sees Ryle because Ryle is Alyssa's brother and Lily and Ryle use to be together. It seems like Lily has a hard time being around Ryle because of their past relationship together; thus making it hard to talk about Atlas and bring him up in conversation. sigh
November 12, 2022 Began reading this book last week and I love it. The relationship that is potentially building between Atlas and Lily is real. I love the way that Colleen Hoover writes. She writes to an audience and captures their attention right away. Any Coho fans on here?
Of course it‘s a lazy cash grab, but people are gonna buy it anyway (thanks to BookTok). I think with this book, I‘m finally free of the CoHo hype. She honestly gives me Republican vibes, and I‘m getting strong pro-life propaganda in her books as well.
As a stand-alone book it might seem this book doesn‘t have enough there, there. But as a follow up to the original I found it very satisfying, and everything I could have hoped for Lily and Atlas. I know CoHo has some YA readers so I was impressed with Lily and the honesty she now demands of herself and anyone in her life.
November #DoubleSpin because I was so sure it would be a botm :( @TheAromaofBooks
