Colleen Hoover - Quotes and Video Book Reviews for One of TikTok's Favorite Authors

Colleen Hoover
New Adult novelist Colleen Hoover has become a major favorite among TikTok readers these past few years, and BookTok fans around the world are sharing her books with other readers. She’s already inspired a number of book clubs on Fable, so we’ve created this handy reader's guide to introduce you to Hoover’s work!

Colleen Hoover's book club interview

The author recently sat down with Jenna Bush Hager, addressing both the meteoritic success of her books and some of the controversies around her work. Most dramatically, she discussed her mother's story, which inspired the story arc of “It Ends With Us."“My mother and father divorced when I was two, and one of my earliest memories was him throwing a TV at her ... She was able to get out of that relationship. And then from then on, I just remember growing up with a mother who was so strong and independent.”While we don't have a release date for the film adaptation of "It Ends with Us," we do know it will star Blake Lively and Justin Baldoni as the couple at the heart of the story.

Colleen Hoover Quotes

Fable book clubs make it easy to highlight and share your favorite quotes. We've collected a few of our favorite quotes from Hoover's heartbreaking books.“There is no such thing as bad people. We’re all just people who sometimes do bad things.”  — "It Ends with Us"“Don't take life too seriously. Punch it in the face when it needs a good hit. Laugh at it.”  — "Slammed"“Love isn't always pretty. Sometimes you spend all your time hoping it'll eventually be something different. Something better. Then, before you know it, you're back to square one, and you lost your heart somewhere along the way.” — "Ugly Love"“All humans make mistakes. What determines a person's character aren't the mistakes we make. It's how we take those mistakes and turn them into lessons rather than excuses.”  — "It Ends with Us"“She’s not the kind of girl you choose your battles for. She’s the kind of girl you fight to the death for.” — "November 9" “When you find love, you take it. You grab it with both hands and you do everything in your power not to let it go. You can’t just walk away from it and expect it to linger until you’re ready for it.” — "November 9" “You’ll never be able to find yourself if you’re lost in someone else.” — "November 9" “I want you to remember who you are, despite the bad things that are happening to you. Because those bad things aren’t you. They are just things that happen to you. You need to accept that who you are and the things that happen you, are not one and the same.” — "Hopeless" You can discover more great books on Fable’s New Adult Genre page.
