Regretting You - Colleen Hoover Review
Morgan Grant and her sixteen-year-old daughter, Clara, would like nothing more than to be nothing alike.
Morgan is determined to prevent her daughter from making the same mistakes she did. By getting pregnant and married way too young, Morgan put her own dreams on hold. Clara doesn't want to follow in her mother's footsteps. Her predictable mother doesn't have a spontaneous bone in her body.
With warring personalities and conflicting goals, Morgan and Clara find it increasingly difficult to coexist. The only person who can bring peace to the household is Chris-Morgan's husband, Clara's father, and the family anchor. But that peace is shattered when Chris is involved in a tragic and questionable accident. The heartbreaking and long-lasting consequences will reach far beyond just Morgan and Clara.
While struggling to rebuild everything that crashed around them, Morgan finds comfort in the last person she expects to, and Clara turns to the one boy she's been forbidden to see. With each passing day, new secrets, resentment, and misunderstandings make mother and daughter fall further apart. So far apart, it might be impossible for them to ever fall back together.
I've been wanting to read a book by Colleen Hoover for a while now, but I never had the chance until now. I was so excited by this gorgeous book when I came across it. I was so happy when I heard the news that I was selected to participate in it's blogtour.
I enjoyed this book so much. It was so fun and relaxing to read. The characters are so great and enjoyable to read. I was completely drawn into the story and I couldn't put it down anymore. I've immediately felt connected to the characters as well. They seem so real, and their feeling are so pure. You can really imagine what they must feel in certain scenes.
The story itself is very well written and has a clear chronological order. The story is told from 2 different point of views. The view from Morgan's life and the one from Clara's life. It constantly changes between these two views. Because of that you get a nicer look into their personal lives and what they really think about certain passages in the story.
The story became less intensive at the half of the book to me. I was easily distracted, and I really had the feeling that I had to focus myself on the story for a while. That feeling disappeared after a while and I got back into the story.
I really enjoyed this book, and I can't wait to read more from the author.
