Review: Without Merit by Colleen Hoover

Book: Without Merit

Author: @colleenhoover

Publisher: @atriabooks

My rating: 🦄🦄🦄🦄/5

This book follows our main character Merit who has a hobby of collecting trophies she’s never earned for every embarrassing moments in her life and she has a HUGE collection. Merit Voss comes from a very imperfect crooked family. Well know for their tantrums in the entire town. She lives in re-purposed church with her parents, step mom, step brother, her real brother Utah and her twin sister Honor. One day while collecting a trophy she comes across a guy who instantly takes her breathe away, Sagan. She soon comes to awkwardly realize that he is her twin sisters boyfriend. While we follow merit as she deals with her dysfunctional families deeps dark web of secrets, we are also shown some dark sides of Merit herself. One day Merit decides to give up and exposes the secrets the family has been too afraid to speak out loud about and so, all hell breaks loose.

There are soo many topics Hoover brought to light in this book, we’ve seen her change course from cuddly romance to talking about mental illness, abuse, sexuality and even refugee crises. However, these are way too many topics for just one book. There wasnt enough room to discuss such important topics and so it felt a bit incomplete. I do love that shes trying, i loved how she completely packed and highlighted just one single topic in her previous book ‘It ends with us’. Nonetheless i highly recommend this book to everyone, its about everything important that needs to be talked about at this time and i personally believe YA readers would LOVE it.
