Verity- A Book Review


Verity is considered a thrilling and one of a kind book, by Colleen Hoover. Verity focuses on the life of Lowen Ashleigh, a young writer living in New York City, struggling for money and not really living the life she envisioned. One day she meets a man who will change her life forever, in more ways than one. The man is Jeremy Crawford, husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford. Jeremy ends up hiring Lowen to complete Verity’s remaining books in a successful series. Verity was unable to finish the series because of injuries she sustained.

Lowen arrived at the Crawford home, ready to sort through years of Verity’s notes and outlines, hoping to find enough material to get her started. What Lowen doesn’t expect to uncover in the chaotic and unorganized office filled with paper, books, and notes everywhere. There is also an unfinished autobiography Verity never intended for anyone to read. There was page after page of bone-chilling entries, including Verity’s recollection of the night their family was forever changed.

This book was a 2 out of 5 read. I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone, unless they’re specifically going to tell me their opinions on it. The book shows manipulation, toxic traits, and unnecessary killing. All the characters contain toxic/psychopath traits, and it’s hard to see which character is the sane, heroine type character. They all seem to play the villain. I personally wouldn’t consider this book a thriller, as it had a lot to do with romance- a very “toxic” romance. The book has a good plot, but it was getting nowhere. The main character made the most inconsiderate decisions. Overall, this book is not meant for everybody, however, it illustrates the main  lesson that you never know what someone is going through.
