Colleen Hoover is known for her outstanding romance novels. Once you’re on ‘BookTok’ you see readers constantly recommending Hoover. Living in Texas, she has written over 20 novels. Due to the platform TikTok, her novels have reached new readers. 

“It Ends with Us” soon to be a movie, focuses on the life of Lily Bloom and her relationships with Ryle Kincaid and Atlas Corrigan. We get the point of view of when Lily was a teenager and as an adult. 

When we read about the past, it’s in the form of a letter coming from young Lily written for Ellen DeGeneres. She writes about the moment she meets Atlas and everything in between. We see them come to a  realization that they come from similar households. As a senior, time was running out and Atlas had to leave her behind, making a promise to find each other again in Boston. 

Lily soon moves to Boston as an adult in hopes of opening her own flower shop. The night she  meets Ryle and they spend the night being brutally honest with one another, sharing secrets, knowing it was just for the night. Months later they meet again soon enough start a serious relationship. Their relationship finally has a big downfall and Lily’s past comes back. Soon enough we see Lily make her final choice and settle  down with Atlas.\\

Although this book is fiction, it does a really good job at pointing out real-life issues. We see Lily go through life-changing events that others struggle with and relate to. It brings awareness to the issue. Throughout this book, we get the emotions one wouldn’t think you could feel while reading a simple book.
