WOW!! What an amazing, unique story!!

Never Never was fast-paced, thrilling, mysterious, exciting, romantic, and kept me guessing the whole way though. I literally could not put it down and I can't wait for the next book in this fantastic new series!!!

Surprise, surprise, this is my first time giving a Colleen Hoover book one star as a rating. Actually, I have never never (HA!) rated one of her works less than three stars. Her novels are usually enjoyable, but I very much disliked this one…and am not going to feel sorry about it. There are some books on Goodreads that you can feel uncomfortable writing a negative review for because of how many of your friends loved it or people in general, but I’m not going to let this one be one of them.

Update 2016: I'm not going to change my rating because I did enjoy this book, but I just want to issue a warning that I was so so disappointed with the ending of this series:

I must say... even though I've had many issues with Hoover's books in the past, she and Tarryn Fisher have weaved one hell of a compelling tale here.

The only real downside to this first

Colleen Hoover. Tarryn Fisher. Two authors I love. Two distinctly different writing styles. Somehow, these two authors were able to collaborate and blend their styles together and Never Never was born. It’s one of those books that you finish and think... what the hell did I just read? Which didn’t surprise me. That’s happened with every Tarryn book I’ve read.

Charlie and Silas are in high school. Apparently they’re popular and they’re boyfriend and girlfriend.

I didn't expect to like this serial as much as I did. I had seen plenty of bad reviews for this series, but I am always looking for quick audiobooks that I can finish between other, "deeper" audiobook selections. 'Never Never' was exactly the type of quick, "filler" audiobook that I was looking for.

Admittedly, I was wrong about this story. I was completely captivated by this story right from the start. It was just so different from

Never Never is exceptionally written and unforgettable. An original story, that has left me with tons of unanswered questions, and desperate for more. Gah. That ending!!! The wait is going to kill me! Hopefully it won't be too long... ((May 17th))

Well this book was one whole gigantic tease of a mystery with almost zero answers given to us.

First off I'd like to reiterate that just because I rate a book 3 stars doesn't mean it wasn't good. It just means I didn't love it. I liked this book, I did. I just wish I had waited to read this until the 2nd book was released. Because this book ends on a CLIFFHANGER!!!!!!!!

I don't want to give anything away, so in the tradition of the lovely Kat Stark , this is my (mini) unconventional review.

Never Never has earned it’s 1 Star for one reason and one reason alone - IT’S NOT A BOOK! And before anyone goes all Sassy Troll on me, I’mma beat you to the punch and say NOPE – IT’S NOT A NOVELLA EITHER. It is a third of a book. It’s the equivalent of going to your local bookstore, picking a 300 page book off the shelf, ripping the first 100 or so pages out, reading only that portion of the story, and

What the hell was that?
First of all, it should have been announced that this would be a serial novel and not series or standalone.
Second, this premise is nothing new or original or special or that shocking. Obviously, other's people definition of mind fuck is different from mine.
Third, so many things that are just... stupid! Okay, they

I'm only giving this 4 stars because it was TOO short to feel like an actual book! I really think this would had worked PERFECTLY as a standalone! But aside from that, I FREAKING LOVED IT! The characters were awesome, specially Silas, I'm in love with him already. Also Landon, he's a sweetheart <3.

I'm really interested in what will happen next! The things we found out in the first book left me with my mouth hanging open! What's up with that Brian and Avril?! Ughhh, I want to slap Silas and

A chilling, captivating thriller.
Hoover and Fisher have combined their unique talents to deliver a deliciously twisted tale of deceit, love and friendship that keeps you guessing long after the heart-stopping end.

Check your preconceptions at the door, readers. This is a different—and exciting—Colleen Hoover/Tarryn Fisher experience. Never Never is a story that defies a specific category. It’s romantic, suspenseful, witty, edgy, mysterious and even creepy. I loved it!!! It has a supernatural
Aj the Ravenous Reader

Despite some issues I have with the book, I must say that this is a very unique and intriguing read and I really enjoyed most of it.

The story to me is a first and I find it really very clever of the authors to create a story (in less 159 pages) of teaching two people who clearly love each other but who keep messing around and taking for granted what they have the hardest way to learn their lesson.

Come to think of it, it does follow the fairy tale formula. A mean, uncaring girl and a stuck up,

4.5 Stars ~ ”What does Never Never mean?”

[image error]

Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher collaborated on this book/series with a mysterious storyline of two high school teens who wake up in history class without a clue of who/where they are and why they have lost their memories.

”I’m starting to not like who we are, Silas. You’re a rich kid who’s a dick to your housekeeper. I’m a mean teenager with absolutely no personality who takes selfies to make herself feel more important.”

I honestly think everyone is so far up Colleen Hoover's ass that they can't recognise terrible writing for what it is.

Just realised that Colleen liked this and I can't stop laughing.

I could literally do this gif over and over...and over! Every time I thought I had something figured out, nope - see gif! ;)

This is a short book without anything good in it.

As a person who didn‘t know anything about the plot, I was a very confused and bored entire book. As the story went further and further I welt more and more detached from the story. Honestly, nothing meaningful happened until the very end.

The book mainly focuses on the relationship between Charlie and Silas, two teenagers as they are trying to regain their lost memory. They as characters for me were unbearable to follow because I didn‘t like

4.5 Where do I begin stars?


I haven’t liked a CoHo read since Hopeless. I was starting to think I woke up in la la land and everyone was invaded by body snatchers because I just didn’t get it.

ANYHOW, yay for serials… I guess, but I’m going with it.

Never Never is part one of serials (I have no idea how many parts there will be, I am assuming 3, based on the length of Never Never, I’m sure CoHo has it on her site).

Had I known there would be a cliffy I probably wouldn't have picked this up but I'm so glad I did because I found the story interesting and original. So it was a bit on the unbelieveable side but Silas and Charlie were so cute together and that's the main thing that matters to me.

I would recommend for those who like
Cute romance
A bit of mystery/suspense

My Review : Okay, since this for me wasn’t a complete story just part of it, this review won’t do justice the book but I’ll try my best here. First this book was confusing beyond measures, more than 50% of the book is just Charlie’s and Silas’ daily routine except here they do not remember Person that’s present in their lives but they do remember other stuffs like celebrities, song’s lyrics, television show, passwords etc. Honestly for the first 50%b I didn’t enjoy

Never….never have I been more pissed!!

You would think that for once, just once, Colleen Hoover or Tarryn Fisher could write something mediocre, something blah. They could manage to suck at least one time. Once!


Their talent is effortless.

When I found out they were teaming up for Never Never, I thought there was a chance that their ferocious ability to write would cancel each other out. A cock fight of talent that would innately void the other’s writing. I was preparing for a mess. Either
