It Starts With Us by Colleen Hoover was a good read! 📖 I would give the book a five star rating, but to be honest in my opinion It Ends With Us was way better. 🥰
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

November 21, 2022 LILY and ATLAS. ATLAS and LILY. What can i say except for the fact that they both love each other and love will never cease between them. Seeing how they are so in love makes me happy for them. Fun fact: If they were real people, I would totally want to meet them and say how special their relationship is. Colleen Hoover, well done 5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️👏🏻

November 21, 2022 5 MORE CHAPTERS TO GO!!!! Reading about how Josh (the brother that Atlas did not existed) reacted to Atlas mentioning that he was able to out where Tim (their dad) lives was a shock. But once Atlas drove Josh to go visit him in Vermont, Josh was too hesitant and kept debating whether he really wanted to see his dad. He felt it was a good bonding moment... but nope. He calls his dad an "asshole" and they both leave to go home

Whether it's philosophical paulo coelho or twisted love story by collen hoover or some kind of thriller by Alex but they all are my obsession,I could not sleep without kowing how a story would conclude. Sometimes they sleep besides me .I think I am deeply in love with 📚 books.
Hi 👋 this is K new on litsy
Hope you all crazy like me for books.

November 19, 2022 Almost to the end of the book! Ryle is so annoying... that is all I can say. He keeps getting in the way of Lily and Atlas' relationship. They are officially together because Ryle is a hazard to her and Emerson. I agree 100% that Lily made the right choice to keep Emerson away from Ryle based on his negative attitude.

4½⭐
A story written for the fans…who doesn‘t love that? I will say that I wasn‘t as invested in the “romance” but I‘m certain that‘s on me, not the writing…I‘ve become too jaded, lately. Maybe, it‘s all those mystery thrillers I‘m listening to, they‘ve made me too dark for all that ‘love‘ shit. Although I am waiting, rather impatiently, for Coho to write another thriller.

November 12, 2022 Almost done with Chapter 12 and Ryle is causing trouble. Whenever Lily goes to visit Alyssa and Marshall, she sees Ryle because Ryle is Alyssa's brother and Lily and Ryle use to be together. It seems like Lily has a hard time being around Ryle because of their past relationship together; thus making it hard to talk about Atlas and bring him up in conversation. sigh

November 12, 2022 Began reading this book last week and I love it. The relationship that is potentially building between Atlas and Lily is real. I love the way that Colleen Hoover writes. She writes to an audience and captures their attention right away. Any Coho fans on here?

Of course it‘s a lazy cash grab, but people are gonna buy it anyway (thanks to BookTok). I think with this book, I‘m finally free of the CoHo hype. She honestly gives me Republican vibes, and I‘m getting strong pro-life propaganda in her books as well.

As a stand-alone book it might seem this book doesn‘t have enough there, there. But as a follow up to the original I found it very satisfying, and everything I could have hoped for Lily and Atlas. I know CoHo has some YA readers so I was impressed with Lily and the honesty she now demands of herself and anyone in her life.

November #DoubleSpin because I was so sure it would be a botm :( @TheAromaofBooks

annettochka I've read the first one, but I'm still not sure I want to read the second.
“It ends with us“ isn't a light read at all. What about this one?

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 1mo
marleed @annettochka This one is much lighter - a bow on the characters we rooted for in the first book. 1mo

Gives the best closure to Lily and Atlas‘s romance while expanding on the aftermath of the divorce with Ryle. There is not too much drama, but it does exactly what it intends to and there are still lots of unexpected and emotional events that characterize CoHo‘s books.

Ugh. I NEVER thought I'd skim a Colleen book just to be done with it, but I couldn't stand it. It was a cash grab for sure. Atlas was lackluster and kept trying to make himself the focus of Lily's abuse. Lily wouldn't stop repeating herself. And there's a whole plot twist that literally added nothing to the story except 100 unnecessary pages. 😐

Hooked_on_books Makes me wonder if all the publicity she‘s had lately shook her up. 1mo
Rachel.Rencher @Hooked_on_books Exactly what I thought. She even said in her acknowledgements that she felt IEWU ended well & didn't need a sequel but people on TikTok demanded one. 1mo
annettochka I wasn't sure I wanted to read it after the first book... And now I think I won't read it for sure. 1mo

I‘ve been in a reading slump, for months I haven‘t been able to find a good book, but this one did it for me. The emotion that I felt as if I was living their story with them was incredible. It took one day to read this, and I hope that it helps catapult me in the right reading direction.

This is the follow-up to It Ends With Us. While I really enjoyed reading this continuation I wasn‘t as engaged as I was in IEWU. Still a good read and a pick for me!

I am happy to say I do not have emotional damage. I didn't cry once. I didn't expect it to be like it was. BUT I did really enjoy it. It was sweet and cute.

More Atlas. And not a prequel though there is more info about their start. I only read it for the Atlas view. Lily perspective is... dramatic sometimes. I get it. But I still find it less interesting to read when I have to figure out why she's over reacting. This book is way less optionally draining than the first. Just a story with a little drama. Well played Colleen Hoover to get us hooked. #78-2022

Everyone needs an Atlas!!!
This was so much better than I expected! Lily and Atlas are my favorite CoHo couple. No lying, deceiving, manipulating, or jumping to conclusions - just kind, mature people who know how to communicate. I adore them! I've seen some people ask what the point of this book was, or say it was "useless". Sometimes we just want to see our favorite characters living life and being happy. I, for one, was totally here for it!
