It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover is an intense romance novel that narrates the new and exciting life of Lily who has moved to Boston to start her career. She meets a guy named Ryle, and truly her whole world turns upside down. She also has to face the reemergence of a childhood friend and lover, which makes the story a whole lot spicier. This book had me hooked by the very first page, and I couldn’t put it down.

Hugo Wilkinson just got dumped right before the trip he was supposed to take with his now ex-girlfriend. He would go alone (in fact, he would prefer to go alone, being a sextuplet has its downfalls, after all) if only his train tickets weren’t in his ex's name. Obviously, the only solution is to find another Margaret Campbell to accompany him across the United States.

Normal People follows the story of Connell and Marianne, who in high school were total opposites to the outside world, but secretly the same people. As they grow up, they simply can’t stay away from each other. Now for me, this is one of my favorite romance ‘tropes’. The ‘We hate that we love each other but can’t stay away from each other enough’. If you also like that, I 100% recommend this book.
