Kristine's Thoughts:

I avoided anything and everything about this book before I read it. When I know for sure that I want to read a book that is what I try to do. That way there are no outside influences or spoilers that can impact my enjoyment or thoughts. All I knew was that Colleen Hoover's name was on it and that was good enough for me. I had not read anything by Tarryn Fisher previous to this and was anxious to see how the two voices would mesh.

I am not going to re-tell the story or really say anything about the story because it is better enjoyed that way. At least it was for me. All I will say is WOW! It is different but it had me hooked immediately. I sat down and didn't get up until it was done. There were all kinds of questions floating around in my head and a few "what the heck" moments. I don't even want to mention the end! Of course it left me hanging and dying to get my hands on the next book.

May 17th, 2015 it releases...

 I'll only mention one more thing about the book. It goes back and forth between Silas and Charlie's points of view and each one was written by one of the authors. As I started reading, I knew immediately which character Hoover penned. I won't say which one in case you don't know yet but I'm pretty sure you can figure it out. Both characters were wonderful and now I need to check out Fisher's other work.

I loved, loved, loved the book and can't wait to see the direction it goes in the next one. I'm also dying to know the significance of "Never Never."

I would like to write a novel that every, single person loves, but not even J.K. Rowling could do that. Instead, I try to write stories that pull on people's emotions. I believe that sadness is the most powerful emotion, and swirled with regret the two become a dominating force. I love villains. Three of my favorites are Mother Gothel, Gaston and the Evil Queen who all suffered from a pretty wicked case of vanity (like me). I like to make these personality types the center of my stories.
I love rain, Coke, Starbucks and sarcasm. I hate bad adjectives and the word "smolder". If you read my book-I love you. If you hate my book-I still love you, but please don't be mean to me; I'm half badass, half cry baby.(From Goodreads)

  1. I really enjoyed Never Never, as well! I, like you, avoided reading reviews and spoilers and when I started reading the book, I was blown away! It's not what I was expecting at all! I can't wait til Part 2 comes out! I'm dying to know what in the world is going on!
