Colleen Hoover’s writing career began a little over 10 years ago. She’s known for her adult and young adult romance fiction and contemporary novels. Just recently, the author skyrocketed into fame *again* because of book TikTok a.k.a Booktok.
Booktok is described as a social media haven for book lovers all around the world. In late 2020, one of Colleen Hoover’s books–It Ends With Us–got its sales figures bumped up because Booktok started talking about it again.
Today, Colleen Hoover is dubbed as The Booktok Phenomenon and TikTok’s Favorite Writer. Let’s help you get set up on the Colleen Hoover train! We’ve listed a couple of CoHo books to add to your reading list.
6 Colleen Hoover Books To Add To Your Reading List, Because The Hype Is Real
If you need a book to tug on your heartstrings, this is the right one for you.
Beyah has always learned to live alone and carve her own path for herself. She’s onto bigger and better things, thanks to no one but herself. Beyah meets Samson, but they are nothing alike. Beyah comes from a life of poverty and neglect; while Samson comes from a family of wealth and privilege. They both agree to stay on the shallow end of a summer fling, but Beyah realizes there’s a rip current about to drag her heart from the shallow waters and out into the sea.
All Your Perfects
It’s never a list of CoHo’s books if All Your Perfects is not in it! This heart-wrenching romance novel will break your heart into a million pieces and put it all back together again. We suggest you search trigger warnings before reading this book, as it is heavily raw with themes about infertility and its overall effect on marriage.
Graham and Quinn’s love story started out unexpectedly, but it was perfect. Not until they entered into their imperfect and flawed marriage.
If you’re all for the “friends with benefits turned to lovers” trope, Ugly Love is perfect for you!
This gripping novel about love and loss follows airline pilot Miles Archer and headstrong woman Tate Collins. When they discover they have mutual attraction to each other, they agree to a friends-with-benefits and no-strings-attached setup. Until one of them loses it and expects more than what the other person can offer.
Reminders Of Him
Kenna attempts to rekindle her relationship with her four-year-old daughter after five years in prison. What she doesn’t know is, she will indeed be revisiting a familiar feeling, but not with her daughter. When Kenna returns, everyone is determined to keep Kenna away from her daughter, except for Ledger Ward, a local bar owner and one of the few last common strings that will link Kenna to her daughter. But here’s the catch: if anyone finds out Ledger is helping Kenna reach her daughter, and if they become more than anything but friends, they’ll both be ruined.
Are you starting to see a pattern? Colleen Hoover is not Colleen Hoover without her heartbreaking standalone books!
Creepy thriller meets romance in this CoHo book that’ll surely leave you at the edge of your seat.
