Quick & easy read. Comparable to all her other books
Similar to Reminders Of Him, this book is a touching and heart-wrenching story of the relationship between mother and daughter. It‘s a perfect mix of romance, friendship, family, grief, and betrayals. It‘s a dual point-of-view, and very impressive that Hoover can capture both of the characters outlooks so perfectly.
“I‘m scrubbing one of the bottles when it happens. I start crying. Lately when I start crying, I can‘t turn it off. I cry with Elijah at night. I cry with him during the day. I cry in the shower. I cry in the car. I have a perpetual headache and a perpetual heartache, and I wish the world would end. All of it. The whole world.
You know your life is shit when you‘re handwashing baby bottles and praying for Armageddon.”
“It means people who make mistakes usually learn from them. That doesn‘t make them hypocrites. It makes them experienced.”
“It‘s time I figure out who I was meant to become before I started living my life for everyone else.”
“You‘re a sacrificer. I don‘t even know if that‘s a real word, but that‘s what you are. You do things you don‘t want to do to make life better for the people around you. That doesn‘t make you boring, it makes you a hero.”
This book felt different from the other Colleen books I have read, but I liked it. I really enjoyed the mother-daughter dynamic and honestly all the characters were just so likable. Some parts of the story were predicable and borderline cliché but it didn‘t take too much away from the story, overall I found it heartwarming
May 17, 2022 I thouroughly enjoyed reading this book. I am not just saying that. I REALLY mean it. The comolex relationships that were built amongst Morgan, Jenny, Chris, and Jonah just made me keep reading... and reading. I wanted to find out what they felt for each other and how it would come to an end. However, the relationships that affected me the most were between Clara and her mom AND Clara and Miller.
May 16, 2022 Danggg! Sorry, are we allowed to swear? I mean, look at the amount of post its I used for the book Regretting You by Colleen Hoover??? I mean, the books that she writes make you want to mark certain things... am I right OR am I wrong? Anyway, I am on page 264 out of 354. Yayyyy almost there 😁😄🤐
May 14, 2022 Today I read from 9:30 am - 10:30 am. I should not be reading (technically) because I have to study BUT I couldn't resist reading more Colleen Hoover AND more about Millef and Claras's relationship with each other. Things are getting juicy between them. Between Clara and her mother; not so much
May 6, 2022 Since I am almost finished with my current book, WHAT MY BONES KNOW by Stephanie Foo, this will be my next book. I couldn't help myself so I decided to pick up another Colleen Hoover book. She has written so many books... I can't wait for It Starts With Us coming out in October. Eeekkk 😍
This book featured TWO unplanned pregnancies, and also the second underaged pregnancy in CoHo books I‘ve read too! They are both painted way too positive, I hope teenagers who read this are smarter.
Clara was really annoying, Morgan way too boring and the whole conflict was solved in 1 page.
Sooo this my #bookspin and I might have binged it while I'm supposed to be studying 😂
But it's a Colleen Hoover novel, and I couldn't stoo myself. So I'll have to manage when I'm finishing what I have to study before tomorrow's exam now 🤦🏻♀️💔 I didn't regret this book, so I don't mind not having enough time to study everything thoroughly now.
I really wanted to read this one because I love Colleen's books. There were so many others books that keep forgetting to start it. Will read it this year.

- I do borrow, but the pressure to read quickly gets to me
- Has to be quiet, I'm too easily distracted
- I prefer standalone because I have no patience for an author to release in a long running series (looking at you George R.R. Martin)
- I think being a reviewer would ruin reading for me, but writing would be different enough to keep me reading for fun
Hours read: 13:33
Books finished: Closing in on 2
Ok, I'm getting serious today for #mbcreadathon
I was hoping to be halfway through, but I let distractions get me yesterday.
I gave my husband the go ahead to go fishing which is usually an all day event. My phone is going in a different room. And I am starting the tagged book to get the momentum running with an easy read.
I am really enjoying this book! Stayed up way past my bedtime reading last night, which is actually pretty rare for me. The story pulled me right in. A taste of romance, heartbreak, mother/daughter relationship angst...I‘m all in on this one!
My foot warmer doesn‘t realize that it‘s a little warm for her services.❤️ #readingbuddy #constantcompanion #dogsoflitsy
