If you’ve ever scrolled past BookTok, you have witnessed the obsession of the author Colleen Hoover. People either love her writing or hate it, it seems. Her writing generally has a young-adult essence to it. Her book It Ends With Us is said to pull on the heartstrings and have an incredibly deep storyline. It also has a sequel, It Starts With Us, which recently came out. Note: This book has heavy themes, so read the trigger warnings first.
