The Book Lovers Codex

I am a twenty-something, happily married, mother of one who loves books. I love reading them. I love looking at them. I love their smell. Libraries and bookstores are my holy places... No I'm not being blasphemous. Books are my religion and if you don't like that then you're probably reading the wrong blog I love ebooks too. I love how my Kindle can hold thousands of books and wherever I go in the world they can come with me. I love how the emergence of ebooks has resulted in more books being published than ever before - for better or for worse My love of books is the reason for this blog. I want to share it with other people who love books, I'm opinionated and passionate and I want to share those opinions with you and see what you think, do you agree or disagree? I want to hear your opinions and your recommendations... Basically I want to share the book love! I will pretty much read anything that is a romance but I mainly read paranormal romance, urban fantasy, new adult, young adult, and erotica... Plus the odd book here and there that is not a romance of any description! So that's what to expect from this blog. If you like what you see, please follow!

Losing Hope (Hopeless, #2)

Losing Hope (Hopeless, #2) - Colleen Hoover So this book is Hopeless but from Holders point of view. I loved Hopeless, it totally blew me away when I read it. It was the kind of book you couldn't say much about without totally spoiling the story but if you're reading Losing Hope I'd assume you've read Hopeless first as there is not much point reading it otherwise.

There is a few chapters showing the death of Holder's sister, the fight that made him move to live at his father's and Holder's journal entries written to his sister after her death. There are some scenes when Holder has met Sky that aren't in Hopeless that show his interactions with other people and these are nice as you get to know Holder better and they provide some really funny moments.

There are a few chapters set after Hopeless that ties off the loose ends from Hopeless very nicely (e.g. how Sky could ever meet Holders mother) and a wonderful WTF letter from his sister to Holder written before her suicide but these are the only differences from this book to Hopeless.

Yes, it was nice getting Holder's thoughts and feelings on everything but it wasn't necessary. Don't get me wrong! I really enjoyed this book and for any fan of Hopeless I'd say this is a must read - especially for the ending - but for anyone else this is a book that should pass you by... At least until you've read Hopeless!
