Hopeless Giveaway!!!

To celebrate the release of Hopeless I want to give a lucky someone a free digital copy of this awesome book!

Colleen Hoover wrote about an extremely difficult subject but treated it with immense respect and delicacy that equaled a meaningful experience for the reader whether this thing has touched their life or not. I felt everything Sky felt and everything Holder felt. He was the most amazing character ever. The sex scenes were perfectly balanced and were also written with an eloquent amount of class and respect which provided the reader with a deeper respect for the characters intimate connection.

The two most poignant lessons for me from the book were these two quotes:

"Sometimes you have to choose between a bunch of wrong choices and no right ones. You just have to choose which wrong choice feels the least wrong."

"While I could sit here and feel sorry for myself, wondering why all of this happened to me...I'm not going to do it. I'm not going to wish for a perfect life. The things that knock you down in life are tests, forcing you to make a choice between giving in and remaining on the ground or wiping the dirt off and standing up even taller than you did before you were knocked down. I'm choosing to stand up taller. I'll probably get knocked down a few more times before this life is through with me, but I can guarantee you I'll never stay on the ground."

I never thought I could love a book as equally as I did Slammed but now I think I do. I "LIVE" HOPELESS!

BRAVO Colleen you did it again!

  1. OK, seriously.... A favorite quote? I would have to say all of Slammed if you want the truth. But, here is what I picked since I HAD to pick :)
    "Lake, he didn't move on. He didn't chose this new job over you... he chose US over you. He wanted you to have more time with me."
    That mom is so smart. And who DOESN'T love Will?

    I also really liked the Slam poetry. They are brilliant. :)

  2. It's not necessarily a quote, but I love the references to "carving pumpkins". To turn an innocent phrase into something meaningful throughout the series...loved it.

  3. “Question everything. Your love, your religion, your passion. If you don't have questions, you'll never find answers.”

    There are so many favorite parts I have in this book, one being pink balloons :), but this quote definitely speaks to me!

  4. So many great quotes, referring to "butterflying" as a bad word, "carving pumpkins" as a way of putting aside the bad stuff in life for awhile. Thanks for the great giveaway! Can't wait to read this!

  5. This isn't a quote, but I loved "The Lake" poem. It was so beautiful!!
