Reminders of Him: A Novel
About this deal
Kenna Rowan: a 26-year-old woman who has been released from a 5-year stint in prison for involuntary manslaughter of her former boyfriend I say this because there was no chemistry between them. It was just lust from day one. Too insta love for me. They didn't even know each other.
OH MY GOSH!!! This book was so heart wrenching!!!! Reminders of Him by Colleen Hoover was beautifully written, but yet so heartbreaking. The amount of tissues I went through was unbelievable. Thank you Colleen for leaving me so empty, the amount of tears I shed was insane! I cried my eyes out like there was no tomorrow! Once I started this book I couldn't put it down. This will be a story that stays with me forever. I cried, I cheered for Kenna, I cheered for Ledger. I was one ugly sobbing mess. If you have never read a book by Colleen Hoover before, you will never know the pain that goes along with reading her books. My heart was broken, my eyes were red and puffy from crying while reading this amazing story. Colleen you owe me a couple boxes of tissues😭💔!!! Second, it’s only the first month of 2022, and here’s CoHo wreaking havoc on my heart with another one of her tragedies. Again. 😢 And this time, she even managed to drag COLDPLAY into it. What a travesty! 😒 I'm the founder and president of The Literary Lifestyle, an authentic community that helps busy women relax, learn, and embrace a very cozy way of life.
Kenna could (should) have called the ambulance, even if she thought he was already dead. She didn't. She served 5 years for this in prison. CoHo wants you to feel sorry for her ( "But it's five years." "It was one mistake." ). No. She KNEW she was drunk. She STILL drove, DESPITE being drunk. She got into an ACCIDENT BECAUSE SHE WAS DRUNK. She DIDN'T call an ambulance because she thought Scotty was already dead, which is NOT a good excuse to not call an ambulance. She just LEFT. That man SUFFERED for SIX more hours before he DIED. And you want me to feel sorry for her? No. Hopefully one day I find out. Almost one out of every two couples divorce,” he says, his voice hopeful.
His parents didn't approve of Kenna, the one time she went to their house to meet them they heard her and Scotty have sex, saw her holding Scotty's cigarette, and assumed it was hers and as Kenna never had a good relationship with her own mother, she found it hard to talk to Scotty's mother Grace.
Also, Ledger kept harassing Kenna to show him the letters she writes to Scotty and that is totally none of his business. She said no. When a woman says no, you don't keep asking her until she says yes. To be fair, however, Reminders of Him was not a perfect book. While Hoover explained the potential holes this story could have had, I still didn’t believe Kenna’s guilty plea and sentencing were likely to occur as they did. (I’m a former lawyer and, thus, especially critical here.) It’s also worth noting that, while Kenna’s character is rehabilitated, she still made big mistakes and is not the most likable protagonist (if that matters to you). Is Reminders of Him worth reading? t Ledger also hate her for killing his best friend? he gets over that pretty fast and actually betrays the trust of the child's guardians by showing Kenna pictures of her child, which was totally not his place to do. he's known those people for his entire life, he practically co-raises that kid but throws it all away for a woman he barely knows and who killed his best friend? make it make any kind of sense
