FRIDAY FINDS is a weekly meme hosted by A Daily Rhythm, which showcases the books you ‘found’ and added to your To Be Read (TBR) list… whether you found them on-line, or in a book store, or in the library — wherever! (they aren’t necessarily books you purchased).
So this week I joined my local library (took me longer than it should have, I know) and while I was perusing the shelves I thought that I might have a look for a book by Colleen Hoover, seeing as she is all over my book instagram feed. I found one called Ugly Love which I absolutely loved, and devoured it in just under two days.
After publishing my review I got a comment from a fellow blogger telling me that I should read the book Slammed, also be Colleen Hoover. So I looked it up on the library website and reserved it, and got an email this morning telling me it has arrived and I can go and collect it, which I will be doing on my way to work. When I looked it up on goodreads, I discovered that it is the first book of a series, therefore, depending on if I enjoy it (if its anything like her last one I am sure to love it) the rest of the series will also be put onto my tbr list. So that is my Friday Find for this week 🙂
Following the unexpected death of her father, 18-year-old Layken is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacious, but inwardly, she’s losing hope.
Enter Will Cooper: The attractive, 21-year-old new neighbour with an intriguing passion for slam poetry and a unique sense of humour. Within days of their introduction, Will and Layken form an intense emotional connection, leaving Layken with a renewed sense of hope.
Not long after an intense, heart-stopping first date, they are slammed to the core when a shocking revelation forces their new relationship to a sudden halt. Daily interactions become impossibly painful as they struggle to find a balance between the feelings that pull them together, and the secret that keeps them apart
Happy Reading 🙂
