I m kind of lost for words right now, so this is going to be a very ramble filled first impression after having finished Regretting You First off, as soon as I started Regretting You, I didn t want to put it down My emotions are currently all over the place, and like I typically do with CoHo s booksI cried than once haha , but I loved this book so, so much I don t think I ve ever read a book where a mother daughter relationship was such a central focus or portrayed the way that it was here, and plot wise, I most certainly have never read anything remotely like Regretting You This book is raw and doesn t hold backit actually made my jaw drop several times It completely enraptured me and I m currently so overwhelmed feeling wise, but in the best way This is the sort of book that you finish and it makes you realize why you love reading I loved Morgan and Clara and I loved how the story alternated between their POVsI loved the romantic parts of the story, the family strugglesabsolutely everything I wasn t sure what kind of story to expect going in, but I loved every moment For a long time Maybe Someday has sat at the top of my mind as my favourite CoHo book, but honestly I think Regretting You just topped the list sorry Maybe Someday Soooooo amazing Will likely tweak this review a little, but all in all I just have to say that I absolutely LOVED this book I d recommend it to readers who already love CoHo trust me, you ll LOVE this one, too , but I d also recommend it to readers who are new to Colleen Hoover and are looking for books that kind of toe the line between romance and woman s fiction, especially if you like stories that unfold in unexpected ways and push you to think and feel Highly, highly recommendespecially as Regretting You is definitely going on my top books list for 2019 I m calling that already I am constantly amazed that Colleen can write so many styles and they are all still fabulous She has a way with words that just draw me in no matter the content Regretting You is about a teenage daughter and mother during the hardest time of their lives They already have a hard relationship and when tragedy strikes it take a huge toll on them they both keep things from each other which causes so many problems It s a reminder to always be honest no matter what The characters, despite my lack of things in common, are so relatable It s Colleen s way no matter the character or the situation I can understand and relate to their story I couldn t put it down and finished in a day This is a must read if you like a story with a good flow and enjoyable characters. Is there a teaser Anything to get us by until December rolls over If not, then this is just cruel CRUEL Torture Waitingwaitingwaiting.arrgh. When was the last time you finished a book and thought I need to buy this for my mom Colleen Hoover is a boy mom and she wrote the mother daughter dynamic better than a true story Regretting You is so heartbreaking that it made me uncomfortable It s so moving that I m filled with so much warmth and love and I need this physical copy so I can give it to my daughter when the time is right This book needs to be read With all Hoover books, go in blind, don t worry about the synopsis Just know your heart will thank you. 4,5 starsMore to come on December 1st.
