A book review on Regretting You. Here’s what I think about this book and why it is worth a read.
How did I stumble upon this amazing book that had me blushing in my seat?
Well, I had just finished All my perfects by Colleen Hoover about a month ago and I was looking for what next to read. And, I saw this book on one of my favorite bookstagram accounts on IG. I downloaded it ASAP but couldn’t read it immediately cause I had like a month worth of exams. I finally got to it now.
At first, it was a slow read but then I got to chapter 5 and I couldn’t drop the book again. I just had to finish it…I finished it in one sitting.
The book is majorly about lost love, finding love again after lies and betrayal. How could you begin to forgive two people that meant the world to you but betrayed you in the worst possible way?
Characters and Book Elements
My favorite characters have to be Clara and Miller, they were couple goals. They make you want to get yourself a boyfriend or if you have one, write up a to-do list for the already existing boyfriend.
My favorite line;
“That sandwich meant nothing to me. I’d take your tongue in my mouth over that sandwich any day.”
I loved that the storyline wasn’t so cliché. Also, I enjoyed watching how the characters develop, their different personalities and getting to obsess over one character or the other.
The author alternates between Morgan and Clara’s perspectives.
However, I’d have loved to get a point of view from either Chris or Jonah so that I can know what’s went on in their heads too.
Colleen Hoover just has a way of making the lives of the characters so relatable that you can almost imagine yourself in their place. I haven’t found a book of hers I didn’t enjoy.
This is my quotable quote from the book
“Attraction is fun. So when you decide to commit to someone, you aren’t saying, ‘I promise I’ll never be attracted to anyone else.’ You’re saying, ‘I promise to commit to you, despite my potential future attraction to other people.”
There were parts of the story I definitely wish happened differently.
For instance, a lot of questions I had were left unanswered at the end of the story which made the ending feel incomplete.
I thought the book to be an amazing read and definitely worth a read if you’re a fan of Young adult books and romantic at heart.
I’d rate it to be 4 out of 5 stars.
