This may seem like a bit of a backhanded compliment, but I think I enjoy Hoover s fucked up books so much because I usually find her regular romances kinda fucked up I like her books so much when she s writing about trauma and morally questionable characters than when she s trying to sell me a douche as a love interest.It s a clever book, and I don t simply mean because of its twists and turns It s clever because of the fear and uncertainty the author creates That all three authors create The aptly named Verity is a novel about fictions and truths, about authors and characters, and about how it can sometimes be hard to separate the two.I found it absolutely riveting.Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube flag 744 likesLike see review View all 32 comments Dec 11, 2018 rated it it was

my therapist s office with sunglasses and a pi a colada and dropping this book on the desk with a resounding thud we need to discuss this Why read Verity when you can just pull out a Ouija board and summon a demon I m sure it ll have the same effect I finished this book feeling completely sapped of life, as if I ve been bleeding freely for the past few hours instead of simply reading I wish I could just shake my head to dissolve the memory of that ending, to disarrange it somehow Because, of all the things I d braced myself for, that did not cross my mind So, what s this book about Lowen Ashleigh is set free from the long tedium of her daily life when she s employed by Jeremy Crawford to ghostwrite the remaining books in a popular series his wife, Verity, is unable to finish due to an unfortunate accident Lowe acquiesces in the spirit of hope that this opportunity would help her acquire some small measure of celebrity that would be pure oxygen to the fire of her career But nothing prepares Lowe for the purity of dread that clamps down her like a vise when she stumbles upon Verity s autobiography Verity s secrets soon take up so much space in the house that there is barely any room left for Lowe s body Now she has to force what she s reading into what she knew of Verity, Jeremy, and their lives together She has to weave it in among what she expected.Sooner or later, the whole truth would spill, and this fraught waiting would come to an end with havoc, and screaming, and loss After all, this is a house full of Chronics The next tragedy is already long overdue I relish books that make me backtrack my own declarations of preference, the ones that catch me completely off guard, astonish me, keep me on my toes Verity is not at all what I expected, and I think it is all the better for it I d gone on in mystery, but not without speculation and a vast deal of skepticism I made the mistake of perceiving this book through the haze of my opinions on Hoover s early books, and it didn t look quite like I remembered I ve never been happier to be so astronomically wrong, because this book absolutely lives up to the buzz.Verity is a fiendishly clever, mind bending whirligig of a book It s a hall of mirrors where everything is a vacant reflection, including the people who live there Hoover lures and tricks and sets obstacles to drive you into her toils She wields her unreliable characters to stunning effect, confounding, disturbing and delighting in turn, and draws you into a world where illusion informs reality and time enfolds hauntingly Not only is nothing what it seems, it s not even what it seems after it s been revealed to be not what it seems I was entrapped in this story long before I even realized that the net has been cast.I love how wild the energy was in this book, barely controllable yet perfectly controlled Hoover drapes Lowe s unease and confusion over the reader by keeping us in the same disconcerting darkness Danger pulses all around Every page is very thin ice to skate on You can scarcely see the freshly hideous future taking shape ahead of you, yet you can feel it all the same I have a quirk of prudence in me that s hard to break and if I were Lowe, I d have gotten the hell out of that place I couldn t fathom how her fear couldn t properly kindle I d have been impressed if I weren t too distressed and I d have appreciated her courage if I weren t too preoccupied repeating a litany of GET OUT OF THERE in my head.And, oh my God, the ending It struck me backhanded Verity offers you no solidity of truth that you could hold in your hands Even as I was reading the last chapter, I was mining it for clues, trying to make sense of something so innately senseless Everything I ve read up until that point felt like a false memory, and I was left shaking my fist at the whole book for leaving me on such a hideous note as it did.In conclusion, stories like Verity, are the reason I m going to be one of those parents in their forties that make their kids go to sleep at 6 pm so they can drink scotch in the bath and have an existential crisis about that book they read back in 2018 BLOG TWITTER INSTAGRAM

boundaries For telling the unexpected story It s got bad things in it Bad words, bad people, bad scenes Hoover preempted Verity s release with a warning of sorts although facetious and comical in delivery, it s something sensitive readers should take to heart This storyline is dark, and the lives of the characters that inhabit the pages are far from perfect so, don t kid yourself into thinking this is something it s not Verity is horrifying, maddening, and what the hell inducing, but it s also sustenance for that bibliophile looking to satisfy a craving for something different From chapter one, it s blatantly obvious this comes from an entirely different side of Hoover s psyche than her typical love stories Blood spatter accompanies the all consuming, addictive quality of her words Storytelling with the power to crawl inside of your mind, take over, and demand your undivided attention Lowen s life is literally in shambles her mom just passed, she s broke, on the brink of eviction and even though she s a talented author, the crippling anxiety involved with marketing herself to fans has made her work less than popular.It s the opportunity of a lifetime that uproots Lowen from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan to the quiet Vermont countryside Contracted by a publisher to ghostwrite the three remaining books in an uber popular series after the author was involved in an accident, Lowen has a ton of work ahead Research lands her in Verity Crawford s home office, looking for anything that might indicate the direction the author wanted to take the series Instead, she finds herself caught up in Verity s life Living in her home, sleeping in her bed, and spending time with Verity s husband, Jeremy, and their young son Inescapable is the grief and pain marring it all Most surprising was the level of creepiness Hoover managed to incite A level even some seasoned suspense writers fail to attain From someone who reads in the genre consistently and watches horror, it s quite the feat for me to feel this level of anxiety For my stomach to be twisted in knots, in anticipation of what s to come but, it happened.And that finale stunning I was so sure I d pinpointed exactly what was happening and why, but I was wrong So very wrong Hoover mentions in her Acknowledgements that this was an indie project she wanted to branch out and write on her own, which is commendable and exciting when you think about where her inner drive might take readers next While there s no denying her love stories are fierce, my hope is for suspense To be this taken with her first try, I can only imagine what that mind of hers might dream up next flag 473 likesLike see review View all 84 comments Dec 07, 2018 Chelsea Humphrey rated it it was amazing I ve pulled up this

due to its dark and disturbing nature Find what you love and let it kill you Charles BukowskiThere s not really much you can say about the plot here, other than read it for yourself ya filthy animal you really should just go into it blind Obviously there are numerous content warnings, view spoiler child abuse, murder, murder of a child, attempted home abortion, adultery, descriptive fatal pedestrian accident, etc hide spoiler , but it you re open to picking up this book with as little knowledge of the story as possible it will be in your best interest Most people come to New York to be discovered The rest of us come here to hide The characters here are deviously flawed, every last one of them, and I love this I m a sucker for storylines that feature the writing of a book inside the plot, and this was no exception The varying between Low s present tense POV and the chapters featuring Verity s autobiography built the most exquisite tension, and by the end of the novel we are flipping pages as quickly as Low is, trying to decipher where this is going and what s going to happen Also, that epilogue That is all I will say, other than I m respectful and grateful to CoHo for leaving this book without the neat wrapping and shiny bow There are pieces of the story that are essentially left up to the reader to determine their thoughts on, and while a bloody and gruesome story, this will make a fabulous book club novel with copious discussion points Highly recommended if you can stomach the content, but beware reader once you pick it up, you certainly won t want to

written, she finds a manuscript of a truly messed up autobiography that changes her life and the life of the Crawford family forever The word I would use to describe this book is disturbing I was seriously disturbed the whole time I read It wasn t too spooky for me, but it was thrilling and horrifying at times The writing was out of this world and the story messed with my mind I m not sure if I loved it, hated it, liked the characters or hated them It s a story that s not always likable, but dang it was good It was enthralling and made me think That ending messed with my mind so bad, I don

my knowledge, a single book by Colleen Hoover Although I did find one of her books languishing on my Kindle recently I see so many rave reviews for her novels, and some of them seem like books I would probably like, but for some reason I continue to associate her with YA books, which is not my favorite genre But, when I saw this book on Kindle Unlimited and read the synopsis, I was instantly intrigued If the book had been written by anyone else, I probably would have given it a pass, while congratulating myself on using my iron willpower to stick to my strict no exceptions psychological thriller diet But, because I knew this book was a departure for this wildly popular writer, my curiosity won out So much for my iron willpowerThe setup is interesting Author, Lowen Ashleigh s financial status is as dismal as her book sales Her mother recently died after a lengthy illness and she s fending off eviction notifications, when out of the blue she is given the incredible and lucrative opportunity of co authoring a series with, or rather, for, the famous writer, Verity Crawford Verity was in a horrible car crash and is no longer able to continue writing Lowen doesn t have to think too hard about accepting the job, especially when she sees the amount of money involved Verity s devoted husband, Jeremy, allows Lowen to live in their home while she goes through Verity s notes on the series and acclimates herself with the tasks she s been hired to perform But when she stumbles across a Verity s autobiography amongst her other work materials Lowen rationalizes the need to read the manuscript, convincing herself it will help her better understand Verity What she learns about the esteemed author will blow your mind Meanwhile, as Lowen immerses herself deeper and deeper into Verity s memoir, a bond develops between Jeremy and Lowen The attraction deepens as they spend time together, until it becomes palpable and undeniable However, Lowen has begun to irrationally fear Verity.Are her fears overwrought Is her imagination playing tricks on her For long time fans of this author, this book could be a little like culture shock But, for the seasoned readers of psychological thrillers, all this twisty darkness, and diabolical characterizations are par for the course However, I must say that this one is than just a departure for this author, it is a bit of a departure for the standard psychological thriller, as well Many of you may not remember the surge in popularity of psychological thrillers back in the nineties, not just in books, but in movies, as well Back then, it was almost a requirement for a PT to be as sexually steamy, as it was edgy and suspenseful I thought this book had that same feel, as it contained a lot sexually explicit content than most standard PT s written today It should also be noted that many people have shelved this book in the romance category However, in my opinion, this is not a romance, nor does it fall into the romantic suspense category, although there is a romantic element, if you wish to view it as such It s a pure psychological thriller, through and through That s just my take on it As far as PT s go, this one is unique, very atmospheric and creepy, and even I, Miss jaded and burned out on PT s, nearly jumped out of my skin on one occasion The author thankfully keeps the story on an even keel, with no wild, unnecessary, or over the top twists In fact, the twists are very well timed, and the suspense builds at a steady and effective pace Although the story is far from predictable, I did figure some things out in advance, and many seasoned PT readers will probably have a good inkling where everything is headed, as well It s an unavoidable occupational hazard I think Still, the final turn of the screw was very well done, and the book ended on a perfect note I loved it I am impressed by Ms Hoover s courage to step outside her comfort zone, taking a risk by writing outside of her usual genre That she pulled this off, shouldn t really be a surprise, though Reading her bio, I see that she is a number one New York Times bestselling author Ms Hoover is a seasoned, professional writer and has been for some time Let s give her a little credit here I hope her success with this book will widen her reading audience and I hope she will try her hand at this genre again someday

that she doesn t put forth simple fluffy romances There s often something just under the surface that tickles at your subconscious until Hoover is ready to spring it on you, pulling the carpet out from under your feet, making you question everything you just read Like a Sixth Sense moment, you know what I mean Over the years I ve watched reviewers, and even fellow authors always female shame on you , throw shade at Colleen for every reason under the sun Most especially about the dynamics she creates between the men and women in some of her stories Her critics say that the men are creepy, sexist and don t take no for an answer, her female characters are pathetic and weak You know what I say to that SO FUCKING WHAT It s not Colleen s responsibility to only write politically correct scenarios.It s not Colleen s responsibly to coddle you and your sensibilities It s not Colleen s responsibility to create what YOU feel are likeable characters.So what if you feel that all of her female characters are portrayed as weak So what if you think all of her male characters are creepy.So The Fuck What.And before some fuckwit comments about itIt s not Colleen s responsibility to provide role models for young men and women to emulate.It s not her responsibility to censure herself and her craft because it may in some way negatively influence a reader It s not her responsibility to teach young women what they should and should not tolerate from a man I ve never seen any other author take the kind of flack that is thrown in Colleen s direction in an attempt to diminish her loyal following All I can say to Colleen is that she must be doing something right She should stop kowtowing to these armchair feminists behind their computer screens She writes FICTION for ADULTS and if they can t sort out the difference between that and the real world then to hell with them.____________________________fic tion fikSH n nounliterature in the form of prose, especially short stories

    6. Laughs hysterically What Three hours later and I m still laughing and head shaking at the mindfuck that was this story.
