This Girl by Colleen Hoover
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Hi, my name is Mollie and I'm a objectum-sexual...
1. Pronounced emotional and often romantic desire towards developing significant relationships with particular inanimate objects. Those individuals with this expressed preference may feel strong feelings of arousal, attraction, love, and commitment to certain items or structures of their fixation.
2. Belief that objects have souls, intelligence, feelings, and are able to communicate.
My objectphilic nature towards This Girl stems from the fact I believe that this book without a doubt does have a soul. In fact, that could be said about any Colleen Hoover novel.
Okay, so maybe objectophilia is a bit of an overkill, but it is completely safe to say that I have developed an intense fixation, a "pronounced emotional desire and strong feelings of love" for this amazing series. I believe that this book can communicate. It communicates straight to the heart and soul.
Colleen Hoover did so much more than just retell a story. She created a fresh new approach to something that was already perfect. She perfected perfection and then perfected it again. She gave us a new story by telling us the old one. Retelling the past, but moving towards the future. You get two books in one. You get Slammed from Will's point of view, but you also get the continuation of Will and Layken's story after Point of Retreat.
Colleen Hoover shoots talent from her fingers and emotion from her words. Everything she writes is flawless. This Girl is flawless. I can always count on everything from her books...everything. This is everything. I couldn't have asked for a better ending to a series that I never wanted to end.
Colleen Hoover gives us a piece of her heart with every book she writes, every sentence...every word. You will love every word!
