I am SO excited about Colleen Hoover’s upcoming release, Confess!! It’s coming out in just a couple of weeks (on March 10th). I’ve loved everything I’ve read by her, each story stunning me, and captivating me with it’s real-life feel, impactful reveals that I never saw coming, and yet every bit of that realism… exquisitely detailed. Gorgeously written. Colleen Hoover is one of my forever favorites, and I feel so blessed that I’ll already get to read another one so soon! *squeeeeee!!!*
So what’s this one about?
Here’s the blurb, to give you an idea of what we’re in for:
At age twenty-one, Auburn Reed has already lost everything important to her. In her fight to rebuild her shattered life, she has her goals in sight and there is no room for mistakes. But when she walks into a Dallas art studio in search of a job, she doesn’t expect to find a deep attraction to the enigmatic artist who works there, Owen Gentry.
For once, Auburn takes a chance and puts her heart in control, only to discover that Owen is keeping a major secret from coming out. The magnitude of his past threatens to destroy everything important to Auburn, and the only way to get her life back on track is to cut Owen out of it.
To save their relationship, all Owen needs to do is confess. But in this case, the confession could be much more destructive than the actual sin.
Whoa. What is he hiding… what confession can be worse than the sin, itself? I MUST KNOW!!!
Here’s an exceprt to kick off a week of sneak peeks!
I pass through the hospital doors knowing it’ll be the last time.
On the elevator, I press the number three, watching it illuminate for the last time.
The doors open to the third floor and I smile at the nurse on duty, watching her expression as she pities me for the last time.
I pass the supply room and the chapel and the employee break room, all for the last time.
I continue down the hallway and keep my gaze forward and my heart brave as I tap lightly on his door, waiting to hear Adam invite me in for the very last time.
“Come in.” His voice is somehow still filled with hope, and I have no idea how.
He’s on his bed, lying on his back. When he sees me, he comforts me with his smile and lifts the blanket, inviting me to join him. The rail is already lowered, so I climb in beside him, wrap my arm over his chest, and lock our legs together. I bury my face into his neck, searching for his warmth, but I can’t find it.
He’s cold today.
He adjusts himself until we’re in our usual position with his left arm under me and his right arm over me, pulling me to him. It takes him a little more time to get comfortable than it usually does, and I notice his breathing increase with each small movement he makes.
I try not to notice these things, but it’s hard. I’m aware of his increased weakness, his slightly paler skin, the frailty in his voice. Every day during my allotted time with him, I can see that he’s slipping further away from me and there’s nothing I can do about it. Nothing anyone can do but watch it happen.
We’ve known for six months that it would end this way. Of course we all prayed for a miracle, but this isn’t the kind of miracle that happens in real life.
My eyes close when Adam’s chilled lips meet my forehead. I’ve told myself I’m not going to cry. I know that’s impossible, but I can at least do everything I can to forestall the tears.
“I’m so sad,” he whispers.
His words are so out of line with his usual positivity, but it comforts me. Of course I don’t want him to be sad, but I need him to be sad with me right now. “Me too.”
Our visits over the last few weeks have mostly been filled with a lot of laughter and conversation, no matter how forced. I don’t want this visit to be any different, but knowing it’s our last makes it impossible to find anything to laugh about. Or talk about. I just want to cry with him and scream about how unfair this is for us, but that would tarnish this memory.
When the doctors in Portland said there was nothing more they could do for him, his parents decided to transfer him to a hospital in Dallas. Not because they were hoping for a miracle, but because their entire family lives in Texas, and they thought it would be better if he could be near his brother and everyone else who loved him. Adam had moved to Portland with his parents just two months before we began dating a year ago.
The only way Adam would agree to return to Texas was if they allowed me to come, too. It was a battle finally getting both sets of parents to agree, but Adam argued that he was one dying, and he should be allowed to dictate who he’s with and what happens when that time comes.

My favorite CoHo book so far is Ugly Love. Can’t wait to read this one!!
I just read my first Colleen Hoover (I know! Where have I been?!)…. I read Never Never, and I can’t wait for the next installment. 🙂
It could be about two check-out people at Wal Mart, for all I care, that girl can write!!! Only complaint – the names…. Aubrey and Owen? Oh well…. they all can’t be swoon worthy names.
I don’t have a favorite book, I really like them all.
I’d for sure have to say Ugly Love. That book chewed me up and spit me back out…I was a complete and utter mess after I read it.
Love all Collen Hoover 🙂 Whoo hoo!
It’s coming out next month??? *SQUEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!* I’m gonna preorder that baby!! 😀
I think Slammed will always hold a special spot in my heart (*love* that I have the ebook with the original cover!), but Ugly Love is my favorite. Well, right now it is. Tomorrow it could be Hopeless. Or Maybe Someday. *sigh* But right now it’s Ugly Love. The prose during the parts of Miles’ past…loved it.
Amy – I can’t pick a favorite. They are all so good. Like I said, she could write about any two people in any situation – it’s her writing that I love. The conversations. What she chooses to include for details. Not over-complicating things. Slammed was my first CH book, so for now, that’ll be my favorite….. if I had to pick…
I love all of her books but ugly love is at the top of the list lol!
I enjoyed Maybe Someday.
Hopeless has to be my favorite!
But Ugly Love is right up there, because HELLO have you seen Nick Bateman!?!?!? Gorgeous 🙂
Hopeless!!! That book opened my eyes to how totally awesome Colleen Hoover is!!! But everything she writes is absolutely amazing!
I do so enjoy her books. Looking forward to Confess.
Thank you! My favorite will always be Slammed 😀
I think Slammed is my favorite, but Hopeless is a very close second.
I loved Maybe Someday and Ugly Love! Can’t choose!
It’s a tie between Ugly Love and Maybe Someday. Thanks!
Slammed and Maybe Someday
Ugly Love 🙂
They are all really great, but probably Hopeless for me if I must narrow it down!
Hopeless is still my favorite, followed closely by Ugly Love.
My favorite is Hopeless, I loved that series!!!!
I have never read anything by Colleen Hoover but I love discovering authors I have never read!
All of the books are amazing but loved Ugly Love maybe more than the others.
Love them all but especially Slammed and Maybe Someday ❤️
Wow what a tough choice! Maybe Someday has really stuck with me though.
Maybe Someday and Ugly Love.
Maybe Someday is my favorite!!
Hands down, Ugly Love is my favorite. And I’ve read ’em all!
My fav CoHo book is Maybe Someday
Of course I love all the CoHo books I’ve read…. but my favorite is a tie between Hopeless and Maybe Someday. Both had me in tears, but smiling at the same time… always a good thing 🙂
The one that started it all & made me a fan – Slammed <3
Maybe Someday was the first Colleen Hoover book I read so that one is my favorite. But Ugly love is a super close second!
Maybe Someday! 🙂
Well, I’ve read them all and given them all 5 stars but I’d have to say Slammed, with Ugly Love in close second place. Thanks for the post and giveaway chance!
It’s hard to pick just one Colleen Hoover book as my favorite, since I LOVE them all. But up until the release of Ugly Love, Hopeless was my absolute favorite. But now it’s Ugly Love. Thank you for the chance.
I love all Colleen Hoover’s books, but if I had to choose I’d pick Maybe Someday! 🙂
Ugly Love is my favorite so far, it was one of my favorite books I read last year!
Ugly Love and Never Never
My favorite book is Maybe Someday. I love that there’s music you can actually listen to.
I loved every book by Colleen, but Hopeless is still my favorite!!
Absolutely looking forward to Confess!!!!
Ugly Love is my favorite if I can only pick one. 😀
Favourite book is Ugly Love 🙂
Maybe Someday 🙂
my favorite novel from colleen hoover is Hopeless just because it was one of the many heartwrenching books that i read and it was so raw and witty ahh i loved it!!! Dont even get me started on holder seriously
I really loved Ugly Love!
I am IN LOVE with Maybe Someday. I love all of her books because they have the sense of reality that love is not easy but if you fight hard enough it can work out, they give a little bit of hope in a lot of misfortune that many know all to personally. Thanks for keeping the hope alive! #BookBoyfriendsAreTheBest
I have truly loved everything she has written. But I think slammed might be my favorite mostly because it’s where my love began!
My favorite novel from Colleen Hoover is Slammed!! Hands Down!! I love all of her books though and cant wait to read Confess. She is a Wonderful Author!
It’s so hard to pick a favorite novel from Colleen Hoover because she is such a phenomenal writer. Though if I had to choose I would say Ugly Love is at the top of my list. It’s such an incredible story and it takes you with Tate and Miles on this incredible journey of passion, love, heartbreak, loss and so much more. I was blown away by it and it really made me feel along with these characters in the most beautiful way.
The first book I read by Colleen Hoover is still my favorite, “Finding Cinderella.” It made me believe in love again!
Favorite so far is Maybe Someday. Have read all the books so far and can’t wait for this one!
Is this a real question? How can one choose!?!? Love all her books!
My favorite book by Colleen is a tie between Slammed and Maybe Someday!
My favorite novel of Colleen Hoover is Hopeless.
I’ve loved every Colleen Hoover book I’ve read but I think Slammed is the one I liked most! Love her books!!!
Mine’s Never Never because it’s a cliff hanger and I can’t wait anymore for the next book (part 2) on May. Haha
Ti love all of Colleen’s books, but the Slammed series is still my favorite!
I love Maybe Someday. It’s beautiful and heartbreaking and heartwarming. 🙂 it’s all of it rolled into one amazing story!
It’s so hard to pick a favorite, but I’d have to say Maybe Someday! Can’t wait for Confess!!!
Ugly Love is my favorite!
Hopeless is my favorite.
My favorite CoHo book is a tie between Between maybe someday and losing hope. It’s just not possible to choose one(:
My favorite book ever is Maybe Someday.
Definitely Maybe Someday
Slammed is still my favorite CoHo book! It got me back into reading.
I can’t really pick an all time favourite of Colleen’s as I’ve loved every one of her books tha I’ve read. Keep it up Colleen yoyr work is amazing x
My favorite book by Colleen so far is Ugly Love! I couldn’t even pick up another book for a month because I was so hung up over that book.
Maybe Someday!!! My absolute fave!!!
My fav Colleen Hoover book is Hopeless and a close second is Point of Retreat which booted Ugly Love which is also one of my favs! Ugh who are we kidding Queen Colleen writes nothing but gold and legendary words!!!
I love all of them but if I had to pick one I would choose Hopeless. It touched my heart and I cried so much while reading the book. I have recommended it to all of my friends and they absolutely loved it.
My favorite Colleen Hoover book so far is Maybe Someday!! I love Ridge & Sidney❤️❤️
How do I pick my favorite….. So hard, so very hard. I love all of her books so very much! K, I will try… I will go with Slammed Series, because the Story, oh the story…. and the poem about the Lake!!!!!
Thanks so much for the chance!
i can’t wait for this book to come out .
Slammed stole my heart! It opened up new raw emotions that I wasn’t use to having. I can relate to the story in many ways 🙂
My favorite Colleen book is Maybe Someday. Love Ridge and Sydney
my favorite Colleen Hoover book so far has been Maybe Someday. I absolutely loved having music along with the book and Griffin Peterson made it that much better!
I’ve read and loved them all, but I loved Maybe Someday and Hopeless the most.
Ugly Love was my fav!
Up until now my favorite book is Never, Never but just reading all the little snippets we’ve been getting of Confessed, I think this one is going to turn into my favorite!!
It’s a hard decision, because I love ALL of Colleen’s books, but my favorite is Maybe Someday. Ridge is just awesome and I love how real Sydney is!
It’s so hard to choose just one of her books! But I’m saying Maybe Someday is my favorite simply because I didn’t expect to like it and ended up loving it. Surprises are fun!
My favorite CoHo book would have to be a tie between SLAMMED and Losing Hope because I identify so much with Lake and Holder. Reading their stories was like I was figuring myself out with them.
Slammed all the way!
Point of retreat ❤ Ugly Love ❤ Maybe Not ❤
It’s a toss up….really loved Ugly Love and Maybe Someday!
Its a tie between Slammed and Ugly Love. 🙂 Thank you so much for the chance of winning!! Im so excited for this book!!
My very favourite is Slammed.
My favorite book by Colleen is Slammed.. it was the first book I read by her and I fell in love with her writing !
I loved Never Never
My favorite will always be Hopeless. It’s the first one I read and sucked me in on the CoHo train with everyone else.
I love all of colleen Hoover’s books but hopeless is my absolutely favorite book of all time!!!!
It’s so hard to pick one but I would say Maybe Someday because of the music that went along with it. So cool of her to promote an up and coming artist. I can’t wait to expedite this one. If I win I plan to give my copy to my best friend who hasn’t read any Colleen because i have already one clicked!!!
i have a love affair with Maybe Someday. That book blew me away and I can’t wIt for Confess!
I loved the Slammed series more than anything, and the Slammed series was the first set of books I’ve read by not only Colleen Hoover, but by an Indie author. Colleen’s Slammed series stirred me into reading more Indie books, and I’m so glad I discovered her! I love Maybe Someday with a passion as well, and Ugly Love made me cry real tears. Great excerpt of another book by Colleen Hoover that I’m sure I’ll love just as much as her other books. Thanks for this chance to get a free book, Colleen, you’re the best! 🙂
I loved Maybe Someday! It was simply beautiful!
My favorite book is Maybe Someday.
My favorite of Colleen’s books is Maybe Someday. That book is just perfection!
Just finished Someday Maybe… it is now tied with Hopeless! (Seriously, how do you choose a FAVORITE Colleen Hoover book??) Cannot wait to read Confess!! 🙂
It is too hard for me to pick a favorite…I really, really liked Ugly Love, but also loved Slammed, Maybe Someday – and then Never Never – still trying to figure that out – cannot wait until the next installment comes out. I will say that Hopeless was my first intro to her – then I quickly bought everything I could get my hands on that she wrote and have been a fan ever since! I just love how original her stories are when I read them – it doesn’t remind me of anything else I’ve read, absolutely original. I am excited that Confess is almost out – I am sure I will try to pace myself as to not completely devour it but I’ve had an allnighter or two reading her books. 🙂
Although I have loved each CoHo book I have read, Hopeless was my first and still my favorite!
Hopeless is my favorite!
my fav Coho is Hopeless always make my cry aww love all her books its so hard to choose but always will be Hopeless
i loved Ugly Love :). Could not put it down! Cried happy and
Sad tears, very emotional. When I rated it there were not
Hard to pick just one- ugly love
I love Tate in Ugly Love, she and Miles are actually perfect for each other, just took some time to get there.
So hard to pick, but I think maybe Ugly Love. Poor Miles. Poor, tortured, sexy Miles 🙂
Maybe Someday hands down!
I LOVE all of Colleen Hoover’s books but I’ll have to say that Hopeless is my fav. Holder…swoon-worthy!!! And as I type this comment, I can’t help but think, “What about Will, Miles, Ridge, Silas? Even Daniel.” Hard to choose! And that’s why she’s the best!!
I’m SO excited for this one! It’s so hard to choose, but i’d have to say Slammed is still my favorite!
Absolutely loved Slammed! I love all her books and can’t wait for Confess. Thanks so much for the chance!!
I love reading Colleen’s books. Her characters are real and you fall in to their emotions along with them. Can’t wait to read confess!
I think I have to say my fav would be maybe someday. I love when books become interactive.
The only book I’ve read by Colleen Hoover so far is Never Never. I can’t wait to read Confess and Ugly Love!
big shoutout fot UGLY LOVE!!! I love all of CoHo books but these struck me the most! So excited to see the movieeeeee!
Ugly Love and Maybe Someday, I loved them both so much! I’m starting Slammed tonight 🙂
Slammed is my fave CoHo book.
My favorite Colleen book so far is Ugly love!! It was one that stayed with me for a long time after I read it 🙂 thanks for the chance
Colleen is my favorite author and I love all her books but my very very very favorite is Ugly Love.
I love all of CoHo’s books and it’s so hard to just choose one, but I will say I’m so excited to see Ugly Love turned into a movie!! Can’t wait to see the beautiful Nick Bateman play my beloved Miles Archer!! ❤️
Losing Hope is my favorite, but Maybe Someday is a close second. Can’t wait for Confess!
If I had to pick one: Ugly Love! I loved every word of that book!
How can you pick only ONE Coho book! They’re all too good! I love them all! ❤️
My favorite Colleen Hoover book is Hopeless. My husband’s favorite is Someday. We love all her books and are eagerly awaiting Confess.
It is hard to choose, but I think my favorite is Maybe Someday. Thanks for the chance!
Ugly Love is my favorite CoHo book!
Hopeless is my favorite, but then again I have yet to read them all!
That’s a difficult question! I think Maybe Someday is my absolute favorite!!! <3
♡♡ Never Never and Ugly Love
Never got the chance to read one of her books but I’ve always wanted to.
Ugly Love!! Thanks!
Slammed or Maybe Someday. They were both amazing!! I am so excited for Confess! Thanks Maryse and Colleen!
I can’t choose… I love them all!!!! Thanks for the chance!
I would love to read this as of yet I haven’t read any br Colleen,but I sure plan to and very soon !! Thank you for the opportunity.
That Prologue!!! I’m crying already!!! This is my MUST read book the second it hits my Kindle!! Watch out family I’m not showering, cooking, cleaning or talking until I finish this one!! They better bring me my Starbucks!!!
Hands down the Slammed Series is my all time favorite Colleen Hoover favorite!!! It’s how I found her and started my total fan girl obsession with everything she’s ever written. I just love her
hmm.. I believe that my favorite is Maybe Someday. Thankyou for the chance
My favorite, so far, is Ugly Love.
My favorite was the first one I read of hers, “Hopeless” but she’s a 1 click author for me so I love them all:)
For sure Maybe Someday! It made me cry and it is just so inspiring!
Thanks for this amazing chance!
Very favorite Colleen Hoover novel is the first one I ever read. Hopeless. It was a random one-click that changed my reading life forever. She’s an amazing wordsmith. I’ve read every book since then.
My favorite book is This Girl. I just can’t get enough of Will!
My favorite is a toss-up between Losing Hope and Ugly Love! Both made me cry so hard!
Hopeless. OMG I love Holder.
My fave coho book so far is never never.
I will always say that hopeless is by far my favorite book from Colleen, as well as favorite book ever by anyone. Cannot recommend it enough to my friends and family. She is the reason I read!
Love Hopeless!!! Relate to it so much!
I can never decide on a favorite…Maybe Someday or Hopeless I think…but I really like Ugly Love too…see what I mean??? 😉
It will always be Slammed. I have loved all of her books, but Slammed was the first one I read and will always be my favorite
I can’t pick one book by CoHo that I love because I love them all. each one I read I am get angry because its over and then the next book comes out and its so good and I fall in love over and over again. Colleen Hoover is the best!!!
I loved Maybe Someday and the album that goes with it!
I’m teary just reading this much. My favorite CoHo book is Hopeless because it shattered me and slowly put me back together. Confess might be the first book to challenge my affections for Holder and Sky.
My favorite is Slammed it is butterflying beautiful! I can’t help but love all the characters in this book and the feeling that no matter what life throws your way you can always get threw it with a good support system! Suck and sweet is a daily activity for my son and I now!
hopeless! Thanks for the chance!
My favourite Colleen Hoover novel is Slammed. Slammed is one of my top favourites because it creates every single emotion from the characters and the story line leads to one of the biggest book hangovers I’ve ever had. It was her first book and I read it a few years back when I first started to read on a regular basis and actually would finish books. Because of that book and many others, I’ve developed a love for reading that I never knew existed!
Slammed/Point of Retreat ♡♡♡♡♡
Never Never….cause I need part 2. But Hopeless still holds my heart!! I just love that book!
My first Colleen Hoover book was Maybe Someday. It wad amazing. It changed my life of reading again as an adult. I’m addicted to her books. I own all of them now and have read them all except for Confess. Fingers crossed.
Has to be Ugly Love, hearing the word Miles how a has new meaning for me.
My favorite was losing hope. But I really love them all !
Hopeless! But, love them all.
How can you choose just one of her books?! Hopeless was the first book I read by her so it will probably always be my favorite. But Maybe Someday has my most favorite Colleen Hoover scene in it!!!!!!
My favorite novel by Colleen Hoover is Maybe Someday. I could read that book over and over and it would make my heart race just as much each time <3 😀
If I could I would say all of her books since this women has magic powers, she really knows how to write a good romance book, and make us all cry! My favourite had to be Maybe Someday, the unique story, the characters Sydney an Ridge and the soundtrack that goes with the story makes it even more perfect!! Can’t Wait for CONFESS!! Fingers Crossed and good luck to everyone else!!
Hopeless is my most favorite. It took me through so many emotional AL twists and turns!
Love them all, but Ugly Love is my favorite
love every one but Maybe Someday is my very favorite!!!
Mine is Hopeless
Hi! I really really love all of her books, but specially Hopeless. I can’t wait for read this one. Thank you for the giveaway!
Hopeless is my favorite. I couldn’t put it down!
oh my goodness…I love ALL of Colleen’s books. But Ugly Love and Maybe Someday are my favs….Ugly Love a smidgen more!
my first favorite CoHo book is “slammed”, I had never read anything like it, but “maybe someday” has taken its place. “Confess” sounds intriguing as well as beguiling. Can’t wait to get my hands on it!
My favorite book by Colleen will have to be Maybe Someday. For days I was in a book flunk. After the book ended, I don’t know why, but I was devastated. I was just SO sad about what they lost and what they gained. I met Colleen last year as a birthday present. She’s amazing. My go-to-author. I’ve read everything by her. She’s that one author that will always stand out for me among others. She’s honestly so especial to me. I’d love to win this. I don’t know how much longer I could wait for Confess
I’ve read all of CoHo’s novels. Each and every one of them touched me in a different way. I can pin point a favorite. Each book spoke to me and inspired me differently. From the main characters to the secondary, there wasn’t a single one who didn’t inspire or touch me in some way. I can’t wait to go into this new journey with Colleen Hoover and her amazing story.
Hopeless is still my favorite, however the book Slammed showed me that poetry can be beautiful. Prior to reading that book, I hated poetry. Love you Colleen! You are a true talent!!!!
my favorite book is Ugly Love. That was my first Colleen Hoover book read!
Hard to pick one but my favorite would have to be Maybe Someday
It has to be Slammed because I read it first.
I like all of Colleens books.
I love them all but I think my favorite is Hopeless!
My favourite Colleen Hoover book is no doubt “slammed”. Love, Love, Love!!!!! I fell in love with the art of poetry… Simply a beautiful story. On a side note thanks for the chance of to win a copy of “Confess”. You are an amazing person! And I love love to win!! ❤️❤️❤️
I love all of Colleen’s books, but Hopeless made me fall in love with her! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Love them all but Hopeless is my favorite.
Maybe Someday 🙂
My favorite CoHo book is Maybe Someday.
My favorite book by Colleen Hoover is Slammed. I just recently read it and I loved it. I loved Will and Lake’s romance. I loved the storyline and the characters. I loved the poetry. I have always loved Poetry and I thought the Slam Poetry was interesting. I laughed, and cried. I loved that book. Colleen Hoover is an amazing writer.
Definitely slammed. The story plus the poetry were just perfect.
Maybe Someday or Hopeless. Those are my absolute favorites!
Either Ugly Love or Maybe Someday
They’re all my favorite! I adore Colleen Hoover
Maybe Someday! I let a friend borrow it about 6 months ago and it hurts how much I want that books back. It pains me to not have it in my possession at all times!
The slammed series is my favorite book. I think it has so many different lessons in it and you can’t learn a lot from it.
Definitely Maybe Someday!
I gotta go with Maybe Someday 🙂
Slammed is my favorite series. I think it has so many lessons and you can learn a lot from it.
I know a book is really good when it makes me cry, and maybe someday by Colleen Hoover made me cry harder than any other book I have ever read, and the music included made it even better!
Maybe Someday, to me, is Colleen Hoovers best book so far. I love all of Colleen’s books.
How is it even possible to choose? LOL.
I’ll go for Hopeless. I love it so much that until now I haven’t read Losing Hope because I’m afraid it might ruin it. You know? Maybe someday, I’ll read it. 😀
My favorite Colleen book is Ugly Love, it was very well written and I can’t wait to read this new one!
Ugly Love is definitely my favorite
I cannot choose just one, so don’t even ask! Lol.
My favorite is Hopeless. 🙂
Definitely, Maybe Someday.
Ugly Love was just too….real for me, too many feels.
I’m crying already. My favorite Colleen book is Maybe Someday
UGLY LOVE 🙂
Slammed bc it is the book that made me fall in love with Colleen 3 years ago!
I LOVED Slammed.
I’ve only read Slammed and Maybe Someday so far. My library doesn’t own Point of Retreat. 🙁
I really hope to read more of Colleen’s books! She’s brilliant and my favorite contemporary author!
My favorite book would be Ugly Love….. But then again I love every book.. I can’t wait for Confess!!
My favorite is still Hopeless and Losing Hope by CoHo
For me, Slammed is Colleen Hoover’s best book.
Slammed is my favorite of all..though I love all of her books.
Slammed holds a special place in my heart, followed by Hopeless. I must say, though, it is very hard to pick a CoHo favorite since all of her books are in my top 50!
My favorite CH book is Losing Hope. Not only is it my favorite cover, but Holden was such a sweet Hero and he made that book even better than book 1.
Slammed! It gave me life
Eeeekkk! Maybe Someday is my favorite book eva! I can’t wait for Confess to come out! Colleen Hoover is Brilliant!!!
It’s a tie for me. I love both Ugly LI’ve and Maybe Someday.
my CoHo absolute fave is Hopeless
Hopeless and slammed are 2 of my favorites!!
My favourite book is slammed
Maybe Someday is my favorite. the first book by Collen Hoover that i read, and the one that lead me to another CoHo’s books.
Maybe Someday we’ll always hold my heart!
My favorite is Slammed.
I can’t pick one favorite! I absolutely love them all SOOO much!
I LOVE Ugly Love but Hopeless is a strong runner-up!
I’d have to go with Slammed. It was my first. It was when I fell in love. With a woman. Named Colleen. 😀
Maybe Someday!!! Definitely my favorite but love them all!!
My favourite is Hopeless! Thanks for the chance.
I have three main faves Maybe Someday, Hopeless and Slammed. So different and so hard to choose from.
So far my favorite has to be Maybe Someday, but I’ve loved everything I’ve read by her so far!
My favorite book by Colleen Hoover is Losing Hope!
I LOVE all the CoHo books ! But if I had to choose one, then it’d be Ugly love .
i love them all but my favourite is Maybe Someday!!
My favorite is Hopeless ♡
I adore all of CoHo’s books but my absolute favourite is Maybe Someday.
I ♡ them all!!
Hopeless is my fave, but to be fair I haven’t read Ugly Love yet.
My favorite was Ugly Love 🙂 can’t wait for Confess!!
hmm… It would either Ugly Love or Maybe Someday…..
Maybe Someday would have to be my favorite book by Colleen. I related to it, in the sense that I’m disabled and know what it’s like to want something so badly it hurts, mine being walking. And Ridge’s to hear. It was, like most of Colleen’s books, so powerful to me. I’d love to be able to read her newest story,
I don’t think I have a favorite because I love all of her books.
I haven’t read any of her books yet, but I would love for Confess to be the first one. 🙂
Thanks so much for the chance! My favorite CoHo book would have to be Hopeless. It’s the first one o ever read and it sparked my love for her!
I <3 Maybe Someday!
I own and love all Colleen’s books. But I have to say that Slammed Series is my all time favorite. I can not wait for Confess! !
MAYBE SOMEDAY, hands down! 🙂
Ugly Love…without a doubt! <3 Miles
I love everything ever written by Colleen!
So far, my favorite is Maybe Someday. It is the one that turned me on to Colleen Hoover! I think Confess might be my new favorite, though. That excerpt nearly brought me to tears!
Maybe Someday is definitely my favorite from Colleen 🙂
I can’t choose between Maybe Someday and Ugly Love <3 🙂
It’s a toss up between Maybe Someday and Hopeless 🙂 thank you for the chance!
My favorite is Hopeless!
I love all of her books but my favorite is Hopeless it was one of the first books that made me love reading after I had stopped since I thought I never wanted to read again after grad school lol I would love to win this.
Slammed is still my favorite bc it introduced us all to CoHo!
I loved all of her books!
Holden and Will are my BBF ♥
It’s hard to pick a favorite. With every book I say it’s my new fav. But Ugly Love is the top of my list!
There’s no possible way to choose a favorite all of Colleen`s books are stunning. The Slammed series were my first and they did introduce me to the talented Averret Brothers so for this question I’ll choose my first. Super excited for Confess!
Gosh, That is hard. I have read everyone except this last one. I love them all…
I have loved all of Colleen’s books but Slammed is my favorite!
My all time favorite CoHo book is Hopeless! Thanks so much for the giveaway!!
I have to pick just one? It’s kinda like picking which of my kids I like best! LOL
OMG!!!!! I loved UGLY LOVE soooooo much!!!!! That one is my fave!!!!
Never read anything by her, but this looks like a good one to start with….please pick me as your winner?
I’m pretty sure based on this.. confess would be my favorite! I really would love the chance to read it it sounds so thrilling! Thank you for the opportunity you have a great blog!
I’ve honestly loved all of Colleen’s book…she’s one author I would read anything by..she’s proven herself worthy of that(to me.) Slammed, Maybe Someday, and Ugly Love are my favorite!! Thanks for the chance!!
My favorite book of colleen hoover’s is all of them because they are incredible and i can’t put them down!!!
my favorite is Maybe Someday! 😀
Ugly Love is my favorite Colleen Hoover novel, as of right now….That could change with this new one though. 😉
I must CONFESS, Colleen Hoover and I are imaginary besties. She is hilarious on social media and has such a laid back but fun, cool vibe. Love, love, love her books. Every single one. If I had to pick a favourite, it would be Ugly Love but I kind of think that’s like picking a favourite kid.
My ultimate favorite book is Maybe Someday. It started my love for Colleen Hoover and also my love of books that weren’t supernatural. Slammed is a close second favorite. I own all of her books except for Confess. Fingers crossed.
I read Colleen Hoover for the first time January 1, 2013…..Slammed and Point of Retreat both in the same day. Blown away. The very next day I read HOPELESS. That book totally rocked my world and sealed my fate as a CoHo fan and placing her on my “automatic pre-order/must-buy” list. I love EVERYTHING she’s released. Every single book. But if I have to choose one, I’d say HOPELESS
Hopeless!!! Absolutely loved that book.
So I read every book of her until now and I really loved Hopeless
It would be a tie between Losing Hope and Maybe Someday. Although, I love all of her books. Thank you for the chance to win Maryse. <3
My favorite Colleen Hoover book is Maybe Someday!!
me encanta la novela Hopeless, en serio me enamoro el drama, como los personajes deben coincidir de una forma u otra, me gustó también como describe Colleen Hoover a Holder uff es realmente guapo en mis pensamientos y ademas es realmente conmovedora la historia y como la fuerza del amor hace que se pueda superar cualquier cosa y sobre todo como somos capaces de hacer cualquier cosa por las personas que amamos
I have to go with Slammed. Reading the summary, I just didn’t think I’d like it- I think it was the idea of poetry within a novel. But I caved bc everyone was recommending it. And guess what? I fell in crazy love with it…storyline, dialogue, characters, and yes – the poetry slams. 🙂
I loved loved loved Point of Retreat….all time favorite!
I have loved every single one of Colleen Hoover’s books. If I had to pick only one I would choose Maybe Someday! Thank you so much for the chance to win.
Slammed is my absolute favorite. However, Maybe Someday and Ugly Love and Hopeless were great also. Wait and also Point of Retreat. Heck, I think I love everything Colleen Hoover.
my absolute favorite book is Maybe Someday <3
Love them all, but I would have to pick Losing Hope or Maybe Someday.
Ugly Love and Hopeless! I totally loved these books.
My favorite is Ugly Love!
My favorite is Slammed and Maybe Someday oh and Ugly Love also! It’s really hard to choose I love everything she writes!
I’ve only read Finding Cinderella and Ugly Love and loved them both!
My favorite Colleen Hoover novel is Slammed. It was the first of her novels that I read so it introduced me to her and The Avett Brothers (who I now LOVE!). And I love her too!
My first CoHo novel was Hopeless and I thought it was amazing, but my all time favorite is Ugly Love. UGHH!! That book had me turned into an emotional mess. I loved every bit of it.
I absolutely LOVED Hopeless. Till date, it’s the best book I’ve ever read. I am a serious book addict and it took me like 3 months after I read Hopeless to even pluck up the courage to read Losing Hope or really any other book. I just wanted to curl up in a ball and cry and kiss and hug Sky! *cries* Anyway since I’m international, I can’t enter the giveaway but good luck to everyone! Love you CoHo!
Definitely Maybe Someday…still I love them all!! ♡
If I had to pick my favorite CoHo book would be Maybe Somday!! 🙂
I don’t have a fave by Colleen Hoover, I have enjoyed all of them!
I can’t pick a favorite book because I seriously love them all
Can’t wait to read it!!!
I’ve never read a book by her, but by the comments left so far, I definitely have to give her work a shot!!
Honestly, Im completely new to Colleens books!! All ways on the look out for new book to read, and love. So this book is definnetly on my to be read list, that just keeps growing longer and longer. Love your blog 🙂
How will I manage to read the entire book when the excerpt from “Confess” has me in tears.
To be honest I’ve never read one so this would be a awesome opportunity..
My favorite Colleen Hoover book is Maybe Someday. Followed very closely by Ugly Love! I have all her books on digital format and am gradually getting them all in paperback. Can’t wait for Confess!!!
Love reading. It’s the only sanity I have in this f’ed up world.
I really can’t pick a favorite. I’ve read them all loved them.
I already have it pre-ordered. I think my favorite book is Maybe Someday. It is hard to choose as I LOVE them ALL.
My favorite is probably Ugly Love, but I love them all and can’t wait to read Confess! Thanks so much for the chance!!
My favorite book by Colleen Hoover is Hopeless.
Sounds like a good book
I enjoy all of Colleen Hoover’s books but if I had to choose I’d pick Hopeless & Maybe Someday!
Everyone of her books, but my favorite is ugly love
My favorite Colleen Hoover novel to date is Ugly Love, but I love them all.
My favorite book is Maybe Someday! the story is so beautiful.
I am embarrassed to say that I have not read one of her books yet. I have the Slammed Series loaded on my Kindle. I keep waiting for that perfect moment to start her series (like waiting to open that really good bottle of wine). You want to read those books that everyone raves about but at the same time hold on to them when you just might need a really great book. I am ready to dive in!!
Can’t wait to read this book!!
Ugly Love was my most favorite CoHo Book! I love her!
Hopeless was the first of her books I read and it still holds a special place in my heart!
Maybe someday I loved the songs right there to click new experience which I loved.
I loved Hopeless….Dean Holder ROCKS!
I loved Finding Cinderella.
Ugly love and Hopeless are my favorite Colleen Hoover boos to date. I’ve been waiting on Confess since Colleen showed me the cover at Book Bash last June. This one might just jump to the top. Thanks for the chance.
One of my favorite authors…can’t wait for CONFESS!
I have loved every CH book I have read but I think my fave would be Slammed. Maybe because it was my first. 🙂
I haven’t read any of her books yet but I’m looking forward to reading them 🙂
I love them all! Excited for this new book!
I love all of your books Colleen! You are my favorite author.. I have to say my favorites are the Slammed Series, probably because this was the first books I read of yours , I remember it being very emotional and reading with a box of tissues. We all need a good cry sometimes! I have enjoyed all of your books since. Can’t wait to read Confess!
Very tough! I’m going to say Ugly Love!!
I loved Hopeless but I have only read a few. Thanks for an awesome giveaway ♥

I read anything that Colleen Hoover writes. Love all her books! Looking forward to this new book!
It is between Maybe Someday and Ugly Love. Love both Ridge and Miles <3
Slammed !!!! 🙂 Thanks!
Hopeless will forever be my favorite by Colleen. I’ve read it at least 4 times and each time it leaves me breathless.
SO hard to pick one but I loved Hopeless!
OMG how do I decide??? I think I’m going to go with Ugly Love 😀
So hard to choose. ..but I think I have to go with Slammed!!
I love all books Colleen Hoover. Have all my friends reading them. but my favorite one is Ugly Love and soon it will be Confess. Have to say though Never Never was good too! Looking forward to part two.
Ugly Love is my favorite Colleen Hoover novel! 🙂
My favorite books are Ugly Love and Maybe Someday
I have to say Maybe Someday, or Hopeless, Ugly love didn’t like that much 😛
I love all of her books but if I had to pick one I think it would be HOPELESS.
My favorite so far is Hopeless but I’m REALLY looking forward to Confess. I can’t wait to read it. Thanks for the giveaway!!!
Can’t wait to read this book!!!!
Hopeless is definitely my fav!
Hopeless, I’m going to get to slammed soon

I love them all it’s like I can’t pick….But I will…..Today it’s Hopeless!
I loved Slammed.
My favorite is Maybe Someday! I can’t wait to read Confess! Thanks for the giveaway!
My favorite is UGLY LOVE – I fell so in love with that – was a huge – HANGOVER for me – it was days before I read anything else .
Hopeless is my favorite I think though I love them ALL.
Maybe Someday is my favorite. The sexual tension that builds between the characters is palpable. His struggle between the long term girlfriend that is safe and his undenying sexual attraction for the the girl that isn’t is so authentic. Loved it!
Hopeless is my favorite with Slammed as a close second.
Unfortunately I have not yet read any of Colleen’s books, but the excerpt is fantastic and I have added Confess to my wishlist. Thanks for the great giveaway.
I love all of her books but if I have to pick one it’d have to be the Slammed Series.
Slammed is my favorite, I even got a tattoo quoting the book!
Hopeless is my favorite!!
Thought the excerpt was great. Look forward to reading this book. Thanks so much for the giveaway!
I love your book lists as they give me another place to start when looking for a new book to read.
My favorite is Hopeless!! Thanks for hosting this contest!
It’s so difficult to choose! I loved them all…I guess my favorite was Ugly, and then Slammed…but all were great! Thanks for the giveaway!!
Ugly LOVE…ooops! LOL!
Slammed is my favorite book!
Ugly Love is my favorite, Miles <3
I can never choose favourite books, but if I absolutely had to choose my favourite Colleen Hoover book, it would definitely be a tie between “Maybe Someday” and “Ugly Love”. There’s just something about Ridge, and something else about Miles.
Maybe Someday is my favorite.
Slammed is my all time favorite! 🙂
My favorite book is Slammed!
I tried searching for CoHo’s books EVERYWHERE in my country! I can’t find them! They’re always out of stock! Ordering them is to expensive because I get to pay double tye price shipping and taxes. IS THIS FAIR?
My favorite CoHo book by far has been Maybe Someday! Here it is a year later and I still have a book hangover!!!
If I HAD to pick a favorite it would be Ugly Love, but I love everything Colleen writes!
My favorite book is Maybe Someday. It was my first Colleen Hoover book and made me fall in love with her writing.
Confessed was amazing!
I would love to win a signed copy of Confess!! I recently finished Slammed, Point of Retreat and Ugly Love and am so ready for my next CoHo novel <3
My favorite CoHo book is probably Point of Retreat. I mean if someone’s pointing a gun and making me choose. 😉
i love them all. How can you pick just one.
I can’t pick just one!! I love all of colleen’s books!!
Hopeless – I really connected with this story and read it in one sitting when I was home sick one day.
My favorite is Hopeless!
As I love every book by Colleen Hoover, my absolute favorite is Hopeless. It completely captivated me. 🙂
My favorite CoHo book is Maybe Someday but I am way excited for Confess to come out!!
Wow, I do love Colleen Hoover books! Each one is different and full of diffenent feels for me. I think that when I read Hopeless though, it was the turning point for me, and after that, each one was so unique and affected me.
Ugly Love is my favorite so far! I have a feeling Confess will become my next favorite!
Waiting in anticipation for the release of Confess! Colleen Hoover is an exceptionally gifted writer and I have read and love all her books. Thank you and keep them coming!
Can’t choose. The books are just so closely tied in quality!
I don’t think I’ve read one of her novels yet but I have tried to win them. I have her on my TBR list.
I have read and loved all of her books but Slammed is probably my favorite because it was my first one. Thanks for the chance!!!
My favorite Colleen Hoover book is Ugly Love!!!! 🙂
My favorite is Maybe Someday.
Maybe Someday! Thanks for the chance!
UGLY LOVE. Without a doubt.
Maybe Someday, hands down. It just moved me!
Finding Cinderella is my absolute favorite! Hopeless is a very close second! Love all of her books, though!
I don’t know that I can favorite a CoHo book but I will say that Finding Cinderella is the first that comes to mind because it was the one that introduced me to the wonder that is CoHo – making me question: How can I read this book forever, why have I never heard of Colleen Hoover, and how fast can I own everything else she’s written?
That is a hard decision, but I think I will go with Ugly Love!! 🙂
My fave CoHo book is Maybe Someday! <3 Thanks for the chance!
My favorite is MaybeSomeday!
My fave CoHo book so far is Ugly Love. Co’z Miles and Tate are so lovely.
I’ve never read a Colleen Hoover book but have had her novels on my TBR GR shelf for ages. I’m just dying to read one!
It’s so hard to choose a fovorite!! But I think it’s Hopeless … or Maybe Someday… I don’t know! I love them all!
It’s a tie between Hopeless/Losing Hope and Maybe Someday. Thanks for the chance Maryse!
My favorite book HAS to be Slammes. Mainly because it was the first book I read by her and I haven’t stopped since then.
PS: On close seconds is Ugly Love. <3
Stupid autocorrect! haahh
Slammed is definitely my favorite because of the incorporation of slam poetry! Thanks for the giveaway! xx
My favorite Colleen Hoover book is Hopeless
I’ve loved all of them that I’ve read but my favorite would have to between Hopeless and Maybe Someday.
My favorite novel by CoHo HAS to be Ugly Love. That book got me emotional like I have NEVER gotten emotional over a book. It brought the feels to a whole new level. I’m hoping CoHo writes a sequel. I’m not a fan of series that the second book continues the story of the first book but from Ugly Love, I loved the characters a lot and this is the first time I have wanted another book with the same MC’s as MC’s.
Slammed is the first Colleen Hoover Book I have read and it will always be my favourite!
Love all her books, have read them all as well and with her teaming up with Griffin Peterson, Maybe Someday took #1 in my heart 🙂 THANK YOU ! <3
i want to read Confess i cannot wait
Maybe Someday is my favorite!!
Ok, just one favorite. I just reread Ugly Love and I cried harder this time. I think I will always love Will. Wait you just asked which book not book boyfriend. I will go with Maybe Someday and all the others too!!
So far, it’s Ugly Love but I’m thinking I might end up liking Confess the most from what I’ve heard about it!
I can’t choose a favorite because they’re all my favorites!!! Over Christmas break (I am a full time college student) and believe it or not I spent my whole break reading every single one of your books!!! I could not put them down! I was referred by a friend and I cannot get enough! Please never stop writing!
MAYBE SOMEDAY! <3
Slammed was the first one I read and I went through many tissues, so it will always be my favorite. Red, puffy eyes are always so becoming, don’t you think?
Ugly Love, without a doubt. That one broke my heart, put it back together, and had my ugly crying. In the best way possible, of course. 🙂
Discovering Colleen Hoover was one of the best choices I made. I certainly love all her books but I have to say “maybe Someday” is definitely my favorite.” There’s always something different in each book and that’s what I like about Colleen Hoover and I can’t wait to read confess!
My favorite novel is Hopeless. It’s the first CoHo book that I read and from then on I’ve been a really huge fan of her books. She’s amazing. Thanks for the giveaway :]
My fav coho novels are ugly love nd maybe someday and since then i hav fallen in love with her and her books and this is such an awesome give away.thanks.
Ugly Love is by far my favorite CoHo book (yet). Thanks for the chance 🙂
Agh!! I follow Colleen on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, but I still haven’t picked up a book to read her work. I love her sense of humor on social media, so I can only imagine what she can put into words. Thank you for a chance to not only read her work, but for a signed copy at that. Thank you!
I would have to say that it’s a battle between Maybe Someday and Losing Hope… So hard to choose though…
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Hopeless with all my <3 but a very close second is MAybe SOmeday. I had a week where I just read all of her books. THEY'RE SO GOOD!!
Definitely Maybe Someday 🙂
I love every single one of them, but slammed and ugly love were my favorites and maybe someday too but I love all of them, she’s any amazing author and every time one of her books come out I can’t wait to read it
maybe someday, but Hopeless is the one that will ALWAYS stick with me!
Maybe Someday would be my favorite book so far. It was hard to choose
I have not read any Colleen Hoover books yet but have heard so many good things about the writing/characters/stories… I have a few on my ‘to-read’ list so thought this would be a great opportunity to finally get my hands on one!
I love all her books. To hard to choose between them all
i looooove ugly love!
i love UGLY LOVE and HOPLESS
I love Maybe Someday!! ☺
