The Hopeless Series by Colleen Hoover is a compelling and emotional series that follows the lives of two teenagers who are struggling with their pasts. The series is made up of four books, each of which builds upon the previous one to create a story that is full of heart, hope, and healing.
The first book in the series is called Hopeless and introduces us to the protagonist, Sky. Sky has always felt different from the other kids at school, and she has never quite understood why. However, her world is turned upside down when she meets a boy named Holder, who seems to know more about her past than she does. As they embark on a journey to uncover the truth about her past, Sky and Holder, find themselves falling in love. But when the truth is finally revealed, it threatens to tear them apart.
The second book in the series, Losing Hope, tells the story from Holder's perspective. After losing Sky, Holder is left struggling to make sense of his life. However, as he begins to uncover the truth about his own past, he realizes that he may have a chance to win Sky back. With the help of his friends and family, Holder sets out to prove to Sky that their love is worth fighting for.
The third book in the series, Finding Cinderella, is a novella that tells the story of Daniel and Six. Daniel has always been a bit of a player, but when he meets Six, he realizes that he may have finally found someone worth committing to. However, Six is hiding a secret that could destroy their relationship before it even begins. As they navigate the ups and downs of love, Daniel and Six must decide if they are willing to take a chance on each other.
The fourth and final book in the series, Hope Forever, brings Sky and Holder's story to a close. As they prepare to graduate from high school, Sky and Holder must face the challenges of adulthood while also dealing with the aftermath of their past. With the help of their friends and family, they must find a way to move forward and build a future together.
One of the things that makes the Hopeless Series so compelling is the way that Colleen Hoover has created characters that are both relatable and complex. Sky and Holder are not perfect people, and they both have a lot of emotional baggage that they are carrying with them. However, they are also incredibly resilient and determined to overcome their pasts and build a better future for themselves.
Another aspect of the series that is particularly powerful is the way that it deals with themes of trauma, abuse, and mental health. These are all topics that can be difficult to discuss, but Colleen Hoover handles them with sensitivity and compassion. By shining a light on these issues, the Hopeless Series helps to break down the stigma surrounding mental health and encourages readers to seek help if they are struggling.
Overall, the Hopeless Series is a must-read for anyone who loves a good romance with a lot of heart and depth. The characters are complex and well-developed, the writing is beautiful and emotional, and the themes are important and relevant. Whether you are a longtime fan of Colleen Hoover or are just discovering her work for the first time, this series is sure to leave a lasting impression on you.
