Despite the wackiness of the family and the protagonist‘s depression, this ended up being a simple, soothing listen. I liked it, but wouldn‘t recommend.

With each new book I read of Colleen Hoover‘s I am fascinated by her ability to have such diversity in her writing. This story was so much more than just a romance novel as it tackled some pretty hard topics. Overall, it may not be my favorite novel by Colleen but I can really appreciate the message of this book.
3.5/5⭐️

I‘ve read some reviews where this was one of the less popular CoHo books but I loved it! The book dealt with some tough subjects such as depression and suicide and I think this book examined those themes very well. My heart broke at certain times and I just couldn‘t put it down.

This book did not meet my expectations at all. The main character, Merit, was a plain, one-sided character who‘s only personality trait was that she hated everything for absolutely no reason. The love interest, Sagan, has zero backstory and character development, and his only personality trait is that he‘s an artist and what he draws is “deep”. And the only likeable character was made out to be a “bad guy” most of the story.

MrsBabki Ahhhh! I could read your posts over and over! Thanks for the insight. 5mo

Even though Without Merit is advertised as another romance work, it is much more a family drama. While there is certainly a love story at play, the bigger topic faced is mental illness.

Merit Voss lives with her unorthodox (to say the least) family in a repurposed church. Her main hobby is collecting trophies, which ultimately leads her to finding Sagan, the potential love interest of the story.

Always a CoHo fan, I will say not my favorite.

I love this author. She‘s not afraid to tackle writing non-perfect characters. I loved Merit and her whole crazy, dysfunctional family. Sagan is an amazing hero. Have Kleenex handy. Be aware this story does touch on depression and self harm. Colleen Hoover is officially an automatic buy for me.

I have read 80% of Colleen Hoover's books and each time has been a pleasant journey to partake in. New perceptives to every one of them. She knows how to tailor characters so well that one relates in depth. Through each of her books you travel through love, shame, terror, insecurities and hope. This week I'm yet ready to gracefully dive into one of her master piece.

This was a borderline pick. The story moved and was entertaining enough, but the ending was just too overwrought for my tastes.

Did you figure out that I'm a huge Colleen Hoover fan yet or should I upload some more reviews raving about her books for you to see it?
This was one of the first books I read by Colleen Hoover and guess what? I loved it. As always.
I'm starting to see now that I don't hate books or even think they were not worth the time it took to read them all that often. But honestly Colleen Hoover is my favorite writer (right after shakespeare).

Seeking_Serenity And I highly recommend giving some of her books a read. (Except point of retreat because I hate it lol) 2y

11/3/2020 This book was interesting. A “Running with Scissors” dysfunctional household that continues to spiral. A train wreck and I couldn‘t look away. Ultimately, it was not an uplifting book as the main character deals with the mess of her family. As the reader, you can‘t help but root for her.

Just finished Without Merit. Oh man. Could I LOVE Colleen Hoover any MORE!? The way she addresses extremely hard subjects and tackles them realistically, makes her feel like a real person, instead of just some make believe famous author. Definitely 5 stars.

My current read! Have you read it? Did you love it? If not, why? Have you read other CoHo books? If so, which ones!? #covertocovercafereads

QueenJen I read It Ends With Us. I wasn't expecting what comes to be the big topic of the story. It doesn't mention it in the blurb about the book. I'm not sure I would have read it if I had known. 3y

So I finished my second full book (third overall) for this #24in48 readathon: "Without Merit" by Colleen Hoover. It didn't disappoint. It had all the attributes of a good Colleen Hoover novel: a love story, crazy twists, and the compelling writing style that makes you want to keep going.

Sooooo I'm back from brunch, I've showered, it's 6PM here and I'm 13 hours into the #24in48 challenge. If you're any good at math, you know I won't make it. 😂
But I don't care: I'll do my best. And at least I think I'll manage to finish this book. It's Colleen Hoover, so it's a quick read.

#24in48 Random thought: Did Colleen Hoover go to the Harry Potter school of naming people? I could deal with Ridge, Auburn and Sky from her other books. But Merit, Honor and Utah? And - my personal favorite - Luck? 🍀
I mean, I still love Colleen Hoover though. How could I not?

I don't know how Colleen does it, but she explains the human condition in a way that makes you feel completely vulnerable. Without Merit follows Merit Voss as she navigates living in a renovated church with her dysfunctional family, and an 8 foot Jesus statue that she adorns for holidays (and a Packers game when he was appropriately dubbed Cheesus Christ). Seriously though, this book is witty and raw. I love her writing and I was not disappointed.

Lucas.Rencher I'm so glad you enjoyed it I can't wait to read it! 🤓 4y

About the moment when I first read this story/poem Sagan wrote , I stared at the page for literally 10 minutes unable to believe it's degree of perfection. I kept flipping through pages rereading it again and again. It's utterly perfect.💎🥀

This is a generous “pick.” I wasn‘t a fan of Merit, there seemed to be a lot of “info dumping” in the beginning when she was setting up the story and explaining the back story and who everyone was, the last part felt lick an “after school special”, and there wasn‘t that emotional punch I‘ve come to expect from Colleen. Yet, I couldn‘t put it down.

"I used to feel like I was on the top of the world. Then one day, I noticed that it felt like I was no longer on the top of the world. I was just floating around inside of it. And then eventually, it felt like the world was on top of me."

I love Colleen Hoover! This is yet another great YA book by her and this one touches on the importance of recognizing and dealing with the stigma around mental health issues. So many great quotes in here.

One of my favorite Booktubers is LovelyLikeLaura. She is a big fan of contemporaries and one of her favorite authors is Colleen Hoover. One day, I decided to pick up Colleen‘s newest novel and see why her fans love her so much. From the first chapter, I was hooked and wanted to read more. This book was good, but I feel like I need to read more of her work to get a bigger picture of her as a writer.
