Everyone on TikTok was raving about “Verity” by Colleen Hoover, so I took it upon myself to see what the hype was about, and it was worth it. “Verity” was one of the most plot twisting books I have ever read.

The story tells about a quick to fame writer who ultimately became “brain dead”, she had three kids two of whom passed away. The story flips between the actual book and the character “Verity” her manuscript. With so many plot twists and emotional turns this book kept me turning the pages. 

When I first bought the book, it took me a while to get into it. I couldn’t find the spark that everyone had talked about, but I gave it time and I am glad I did. I’ll admit my opinion is a little biased because I love Colleen Hoover books. I own around seven of them and have loved each one. 

Reading this book was a little tough to understand, mainly because I had to really pay attention to the clues that were right in front of me.

The book was originally published December 7, 2018 and overall has a pretty good rating. One reader said “it was difficult to put down,” and I would agree. 

The book was an enjoyable read, and I would recommend reading it and any other books from Colleen Hoover. Overall, I would rate it a 10/10.
