Slammed

Slammed - Colleen Hoover THIS BOOK!I laughed, I cried, I screamed, I put it aside for a few minutes, I pulled ugly faces, I made seal noises. I lived this book for the hours it took me to finish it!It was wonderful. I'm still not over it. This is why I love reading. This is exactly what I want to experience when reading.I love Lake. She was far from perfect and I occasionally wanted to shake some sense into her but this girl is strong. Her strength leaves me in awe. She has every reason to breakdown and give up, but she doesn't. She carries on and she lives. She lets herself feel this unpredictable, heartbreaking love and I envy her and I learnt something from her.I love Will. What a wonderful guy. I love how real he was. His worries and conflicts were so real. I felt that he aged beyond his years because of what life did to him. But he didn't sit back either. He lived his life too.That's what I adore about this book. I find it so inspiring. It's about living when there's every reason to quit. It's about family, friendships and death. It teaches you how to survive. The poetry in here is so beautiful. Will, you won my heart. How can I ever expect anything but what you gave to Lake now? That poem made me put the book down and cry. Lake's mother will haunt me forever for the advice she gave Lake. The insight in this book can change your life and I want it to change my life.The writing is wonderful. This is my first Colleen Hoover book, but it won't be my last at all! I don't know if I want to read the sequel though because I'm afraid it might ruin this story?I don't want to give anything away because it is up to personal interpretation. I have a feeling it will connect with every reader in a different way. I recommend to everyone and anyone and I give it all the stars!I'll stop "reviewing" it now and say, READ IT.
