Word Revel

Book blogger, recent Sociology grad in her twenties. Stares at labels when no books are in sight. Disproportionately reads YA. This is a companion blog to http://wordrevel.com.


Confess - Colleen Hoover, Sebastian York, Elizabeth Louise Initial thoughts: Representations of truth through art were very well explored in Confess. That is one thing that impressed me a lot about this book. Some truths embedded in anonymous confessions were surprisingly very deep. On the whole this book surprised me as it made me shed a few tears. I can't remember which book last made me cry but Confess touched me because it was so unassuming yet heart-breaking. The narrators accentuated the moods of the two characters, Aubrey and Owen, allowing me to fully immerse myself in the audiobook. However, the prose and selection of words sometimes made me cringe, so I didn't end up loving the book as much as I could have.
