Review of Slammed by Colleen Hoover

Slammed by Colleen Hoover
Summary:
Following the unexpected death of her father, 18-year-old Layken is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacious, but inwardly, she's losing hope.

Enter Will Cooper: The attractive, 21-year-old new neighbor with an intriguing passion for slam poetry and a unique sense of humor. Within days of their introduction, Will and Layken form an intense emotional connection, leaving Layken with a renewed sense of hope.

Not long after an intense, heart-stopping first date, they are slammed to the core when a shocking revelation forces their new relationship to a sudden halt. Daily interactions become impossibly painful as they struggle to find a balance between the feelings that pull them together, and the secret that keeps them apart.
Review:
“Don't take life too seriously. Punch it in the face when it needs a good hit. Laugh at it.”
“Question everything. Your love, your religion, your passion. If you don't have questions, you'll never find answers.” 

“I got schooled this year
by
a

boy.



A boy that I'm seriously, deeply, madly, incredibly, and undeniably in love with.
And he taught me the most important thing of all...


To put the emphasis
On life .” 

One star for a beautiful story
Two for the enchanting characters
Three for making the story relate-able
And the fourth for the amazing "slams"....
I'd have given it another but I felt it was missing something
Maybe it was because it was too small?

I hope no one ran away because of the lame slam attempt :P

Ah I do love poetry.. And I loved how the author incorporated it into the book. Slammed is a beautifully written book. What I took away from the book (apart from the obvious) was this, WORDS ARE POWERFUL. They can make a statement, they can make you feel, they can make you laugh and they can break you down. Words are powerful and I believe that if used correctly and effectively it can bring a change in the world!

I can't believe I have written so many poems these past few weeks!
Maybe I'd post one of them here....

Till Later! Take Care!
