Do you ever get that deja vu feeling? Its like your sitting on the outside of your life watching events unfold and you have no control. You know whats going to happen because you feel like it has happened before but the factor that leaves you with that sick feeling in your gut is that you cannot change it. You cannot change the events that occur in your life. You make the best decisions you can and they lead you to a certain path. The scientist in me wants to write out why we really have deja vu but really it’s not as fun as why I believe we have deja vu. You can agree or disagree but I have always felt like it is Gods way of letting us know we are on the right path.
Losing Hope (Hopeless #2) by Colleen Hoover- will be released July 8th
You are probably thinking what does this have to do with Losing Hope. Well that sick, gut wrenching feeling I described above is what I felt the majority of the time I read this book. I already knew what happens and how the story ends but I could not change the events that occurred in the story. The nightmares and the uncertainty, all the way through the heartbreak of dealing with the tragedy that happens in this series left me with that unnerving feeling. What does this say about this book? That Colleen Hoover is a phenomenal author seeing as how she made me get so lost and torn up in this story when I already had the ending in my mind. It was like a trick on my fragile brain. I felt Hopeless! But then just like in the first book I found Hope. And I also found Dean and Les. I fell in love with this world all over again but it was different this time. It was much more real this time around. I had all sides to the story now and it felt complete. Dean Holder’s POV was very different from Sky’s POV and in this book the reader gets way more information than you could even have dreamed of getting. I cried like a baby, some were out of sadness and some were bittersweet. Keep tissues close by! I loved Hopeless but Losing Hope adds so much to this story. The added depth is priceless and there are a few surprises in store. Secondary characters were further developed in this version. I love Brekin and even found amusement in Daniel. So do not fear, this book holds its own and is not a repeat of book one. This series is a must read, both books are beyond 5 Stars. My God, Colleen Hoover, I don’t know how you do this to me!
Please read book 1, Hopeless, before reading Losing Hope.
