A review by theliteraryhooker
Verity, by Colleen Hoover

dark mysterious tense medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? No
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


This was a compelling enough read, but I doubt it'll leave any long-standing impression. I really enjoyed the set up and it kept me turning the pages, but the characters all kinda suck in their own unique ways and their actions didn't make any kind of sense. I also sought out the bonus chapter which I found undid a lot of what was satisfying about the original ending, which knocked off half a star. Not opposed to trying another CoHo someday, but this was just okay for me.
