Some of those books are not good, some are pretty good, and some books will humble you and change the way you look at the world. When you consider how many hours Colleen spends on her art of story telling, this is time away from her family and friends, that 10$ is compensation for her amazing efforts. I would rather pay for and read 1 good Colleen Hoover book, then 3 mediocre books for 2.99. Spending 10$ of my money sends a message to Colleen that says, I value and appreciate what you do, and I want to continue to support you. Colleen is one of the few authors that I don't even care what the book is called or what it is about, I know I will buy it and read it and she's never disappointed me yet. I also know that I will re-read it, it is worth the money. Also, if you don't think your library will get a book, ask your friends to call your local library and ask if they have the book (maybe spread it out over a week), when they say no, have them ask them when they will order it. If a library gets 10 people calling asking for a book, and they are a public funded organization maybe they will be more inclined to order it when there is a public demand for it. Good Luck!(less)

“I love you more in this moment than any moment that has come before it.”



This book was a raw and emotional reminder of why I read romance. It reminded me of the small magic within the big hardships we conquer for love. This speed-train of a novel hit me hard enough for it to become one if not the best of my reads this year. All Your Perfects acted very slowly like a vice on my heart and before I knew it - it had taken it and shattered it. I shall now write a resemblance of a review whilst pi

*Possible spoilers*

Quinn, our heroine, is infertile and consequently, she spirals into a depression that widens the disconnect between her and, Graham, her husband. The reader is then taken on a journey through Quinn’s five stages of grief.

Hoover interspersed past and present to bring us this couple’s story and it’s quite blatant that incorporating their “then” was an attempt to bring much-needed levity to a book that is intensely melancholic. A melancholy I’m sure was meant to tug at our hearts

I’ll be honest, I was scared going into this book. I knew it was going to be angsty. I knew I’d cry. From friends who had read it, from seeing comments here and there, I expected pain. What I did not expect was to be completely broken, and it's safe to say that I have never felt pain like I did while reading All Your Perfects. Sure, I’ve had my heart crushed in books before, but not like this. Never like this. I’m still reeling. This story is powerful. A raw, poignant portrait of the

All Your Perfects is about a troubled marriage, the impact of infertility, and acceptance of what one cannot control.

I feel like so many reviewers have already written wonderful reviews about why this is such a compelling read, so I am going to keep this short and sweet!

I was completely riveted while reading this--strong characterization fuels the narrative. I loved the characters, even though there were times when I was screaming at them! Quinn's psyche was a bit much to handle at times; I

Quinn and Graham are married for seven years but now they are not as happy s they were, they’re struggling, they don’t feel alive inside and it’s eating their marriage. They live with each other but they miss each other and they feel alone, more than anytime else! Quinn thinks it’s her fault and because of her, Graham can’t have what he wants! But Graham just wants her, he wants both of them to enjoy their life! They still love each other so much but they’re just losing faith, interest, a

This book was written for me. I’m convinced of it. My marriage is going through some shit right now. It’s better than it was a few months ago but it’s still work. The word “divorce” has even been thrown around. So, I felt this book to my core.

If you want to know how hard marriage can be, read this book.

All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover alternates between the “THEN” and “NOW”. I normally am not a fan of going back and forth so many times in a book but it worked beautifully in Q

It’s been a while since I’ve truly sat down and read a Colleen Hoover book until I came across the blurb for this one.

I was excited to pick it up because one, it has a marriage-in-peril trope that I love in my books. Two, the blurb along with the first chapter the author shared on social media truly captured my interest. Three. The meet-cute was quite unique. The whole book itself, however, was disappointing.

A future which led to marriage and attempts at starting a family. Quinn and Graham appear on the outside to be a happily married couple and they were for some time, but issues with infertility began to wear on them and their relationship began to change.

Colleen Hoover just keeps on getting better and better. Granted, this hasn’t topped It Ends With Us or Maybe Someday, this book does come close to it.

It’s real. Raw and painful to read and I appreciated how she delved into the psyche of these characters who have been so emotionally damaged.

Going in, I knew it spoke about the difficulties of a marriage and about a couple who are on the brink of a divorce. The story takes the reader on the journey of how they got to where they are.

As engaging as her previous novels! Colleen Hoover is one of my favorite authors and I've been fortunate to enjoy almost every single book she has published. 

This is the story of Quinn and Graham's marriage, its ups, downs and everything in between. The novel is character driven and emotionally engaging. The timeline alternates between the present and the past and is told from the point of view of Quinn. There's love, humor, sadness, and reflection.

Quinn and Graham first meet when she unexpectedly shows up at her fiance Ethan's apartment door to surprise him, and finds a fuming Graham waiting outside Ethan's door. Graham announces to Quinn that his girlfriend is in Ethan's apartment, having sex with him at this very moment.
