Regretting You – Review

img_0617Thank you to Montlake Romance and Netgalley for the chance to read this book and to Colleen Hoover for acknowledging that orange is the worst color on the planet.

With every Colleen Hoover book, I’m in awe. The readability alone is astounding, but I’m convinced no one sees the world quite like she does until we’ve read her books. We get the tiniest glimpse into her brilliant mind and are somehow persuaded to view others with a little more love and compassion than we could have thought possible.

When I found out this was going to be a mother-daughter book, I was expecting it to hurt. Saying I don’t have the best relationship with my own mother is the understatement of the century, so I wasn’t sure how much I would enjoy this story. I don’t particularly enjoy diving too far into that realm of my brain. I should have known preconceived ideas are complete nonsense when it comes to Colleen’s books. I never know what to expect and I never know when or where a twist will catch me off guard – it creates the ideal reading experience! Despite guessing what the twist would be, it didn’t detract in the least from the reading experience. I didn’t want to put this book down!

My favorite thing about this story was how convincingly I was put into the shoes of both Morgan (a 35-year-old mom) and Clara (her 16-year-old daughter). I felt like I was constantly bouncing between my current adult brain and my former teenage brain. I have to say, Morgan’s perspective was the most enjoyable to be in because the angst of Clara’s mind made my chest hurt. I’m ridiculously grateful I’m no longer sixteen!

The book covers a variety of topics and struggles we or someone we know will inevitably face (though hopefully not as drastically as her characters). Colleen helps her readers navigate reality armed with significantly more grace and understanding. I think the most important lessons readers will take away from this novel are ultimately “love covers a multitude of sins” and communication is the most valuable tool we have in our arsenal.

This was yet another beautifully done novel by Colleen Hoover with Slammed-level romance. I felt every emotion imaginable and had tears in my eyes by the end. For me, that’s always a sign of a stellar read.

Regretting You releases on December 10th.
