As the first book I’ve read by Colleen Hoover, this book has completely converted me into a CoHo fan. Not only is her writing extremely wonderful, engaging, poetic and artistic, the story was completely heart-wrenching with great characters! Ugly Love is a novel focused around love. It’s a love story. Obviously. But if you’re looking for a swoon-worthy, cute romance that gets you squealing, think again. This new adult novel explores love in it’s most ugly times, the lowest times it could possibly get. But not only this, Ugly Love is a novel that explores loss, guilt and acceptance and the idea of letting go of your past to give away to your future. And it’s done absolutely beautifully.
