Book Review: Never Never: Part (Never Never #3) by Colleen Hoover & Tarryn Fisher

The blurb as seen on Goodreads:
Release Date: January 19, 2016
Publisher: Hoover Ink
77 Pages

New York Times bestselling authors Colleen Hoover and Tarryn Fisher are back with the much-anticipated final installment in the Never Never novella series. 

Together, Silas Nash and Charlize Wynwood must look deeper into the past to find out who they were and who they want to be. With time ticking down, the couple are in a race to find the answers they need before they lose everything. Can they regain what they once had? And will it restore who they once were?

So that ending...

This series was an odd one. The first book had me confused and disliking the characters, but I was interested. The second book had me liking Silas and throwing around theories. And then the third came out.
Whereas the first two had intrigue and mystery, the third felt just like a sappy teen romance novel. Now, I've never read any other of Fisher's works, but I've read all of Hoover's and I know that there's talent in this writing so I expected to be blown away and shocked by the big reveal. When the "theory" of their memory loss was first presented, I scoffed. No way would the authors go that route. It's too, umm..., wishy-washy, for lack of a better term. But alas...

The reasoning behind everything just made no sense. In a sense I felt let down by it all. Here was a series that was so unique in it's plot and there's so much information being thrown around and that's what the author's chose to do with it? 

It wasn't horrible. I did enjoy the story, even if I didn't like one of the main characters. But the ending was weak.

"Real" Book Challenge December Recap

Real Book Challenge on Swoony Boys Podcast and Fiction Fare

Happy 2016 everyone! I know that 2015 was a slow time here on the blog, but life just kind of got away from me toward the last half. I'm hoping 2016 allows me to get back to reading and blogging because, man, I've missed it!

Aside from just posting, I haven't updated my "Real" Book Challenge since August (I know, I fail). But since this was the last year that it's happening, I wanted to post a wrap up with all of the "real" books I've read since August.

Goal: 80
Total So Far: 48
Current Level: Real Book Hoarder

I didn't do nearly half as well as I wanted to but it was fun nonetheless. Thank you so much to the girls over at the Swoony Boys Podcast for putting this on, it was always one of my favorite challenges to participate in.
