message 1: by Gisbelle, Sweet as π (new) - rated it 5 stars

Gisbelle | 25107 comments I am absolutely in love with this book. The poems are so beautiful. And I am not a big fan of poems, but this book has changed my mind.


Jan Bethel (jan_bitz) | 108 comments I agree! I always say two things to people whom I recommend this book to. First, you will fall in love with the book. And second, if you think you didn't fall in love with the book and the story itself, then, you will surely fall in love with the poetry inside. :)

Gisbelle | 25107 comments Yes :) I was a bit worry at first that I wouldn't understand the book and wouldn't enjoy it because of the poems. But I was hooked since the first page. I read and finished the same day :)


Beatrice (beatricemasalunga) | 1178 comments A book that totally blew my heart away. I couldn't get over it until now. :)

Beatrice (beatricemasalunga) | 1178 comments I want to read the second one.. but I think it would be a huge cliffhanger.

Gisbelle | 25107 comments So there will be book 3?


Jan Bethel (jan_bitz) | 108 comments Beatrice wrote: "I want to read the second one.. but I think it would be a huge cliffhanger."

Oh, you would enjoy it! Trust me! You'll be left happy and satisfied. But I am really looking forward to book three. ;)


Jan Bethel (jan_bitz) | 108 comments Gisbelle wrote: "So there will be book 3?"

yep! Colleen Hoover is still writing it though. :)


Angel / YA rules!/ | 123 comments Beatrice wrote: "I want to read the second one.. but I think it would be a huge cliffhanger."

not really... =) that's what i like about her books... in itself the story is somewhat finished but you get curious as to what happened after so you read the next book then that in itself also the story seems somewhat done but you can't let go of the characters so you wait for book 3... did i make sense?

I know what you mean! The other books are just like bonuses. I've very happy she doesn't seem to be fond of cliffhangers.. haha!


Jan Bethel (jan_bitz) | 108 comments @Angel - Have you read the first chapters of her third book??


Beatrice (beatricemasalunga) | 1178 comments yes. :) I'll read it probably on Christmas break (so there will be no distraction).


Angel / YA rules!/ | 123 comments Jan Bethel wrote: "@Angel - Have you read the first chapters of her third book??"

is it Will's POV? that's the one i've read.

Ali (Alimut) | 28 comments Would you categorize it as a Young Adult book (and by YA I mean ages 13-16)?


message 42: by Gisbelle, Sweet as π (new) - rated it 5 stars

Gisbelle | 25107 comments Actually, the book is clean. But there are kissing scenes and something like that.

A little bit of a spoiler.
