After – Anna Todd

You know when a book is hyped so much that you just roll your eyes and leave it be? Yeah? That’s probably one of those reasons, why I was late to the After – party. Next to that, One Direction isn’t exactly my kind of band but then again, 1 billion reads on Wattpad cannot like, or can they?

Like mentioned before, I was ignoring that book for a long time, but now I gave in and finally jumped onto the train. My thought on the book will follow in this review, so please read on! You can find my German review here.

Tessa is a good girl with a sweet, reliable boyfriend back home. She’s got direction, ambition, and a mother who’s intent on keeping her that way.But she’s barely moved into her freshman dorm when she runs into Hardin. With his tousled brown hair, cocky British accent, tattoos, and lip ring, Hardin is cute and different from what she’s used to.

But he’s also rude—to the point of cruelty, even. For all his attitude, Tessa should hate Hardin. And she does—until she finds herself alone with him in his room. Something about his dark mood grabs her, and when they kiss it ignites within her a passion she’s never known before.

He’ll call her beautiful, then insist he isn’t the one for her and disappear again and again. Despite the reckless way he treats her, Tessa is compelled to dig deeper and find the real Hardin beneath all his lies. He pushes her away again and again, yet every time she pushes back, he only pulls her in deeper.

Tessa already has the perfect boyfriend. So why is she trying so hard to overcome her own hurt pride and Hardin’s prejudice about nice girls like her?

Unless…could this be love?

Now newly revised and expanded, Anna Todd’s After fanfiction racked up 1 billion reads online and captivated readers across the globe. Experience the Internet’s most talked-about book for yourself!

There was the time before Tessa met Hardin, and then there’s everything AFTER … Life will never be the same.

First of all, I have to say that I don’t get the hype! The book isn’t bad, but then again, it’s nothing too special either. It’s the regular new adult college book.

[Wrap-Up] March Wrap-Up – What did I read?

Hi you all and sorry for being so inactive this last weeks but I basically read like a maniac!
And during the Easter Holiday, I was at my friends place so I didn’t get to blog either but I hope I’m back to business now!

Anyway. I managed to read 7 books last month and that’s actually quite a lot – at least for me as a super snail reader. I will link the book and my Goodreads reviews. Some review can also be found from my blog.
