I wasn’t very far into this when I realized how much I love Colleen Hoover’s writing. Even though I knew the story from reading Hopeless, I was sucked right into this. And while Hopeless has all the major reveals, Losing Hope takes us deep into Holder’s feelings. If Holder captured your heart in Hopeless, he will definitely seal the deal with this read. I loved the creative use of the journal. I thought it was a great way to show Holder’s grief and guilt over his sister and his falling in love with Sky. It really worked for me. It was an important part of Holder’s closure. I’m always nervous about reading a separate book from another POV since its tricky to find the right formula between new and known material. I think there was a nice mix here. I didn’t find myself wanting at the end. I enjoyed this book. It made me want to go and re-read Hopeless. Thank you NetGalley and Atria Books for this advanced reading copy, in exchange for an honest review.
