Review – Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover

Synopsis:
This novella is a companion novel to the Hopeless series, but can be read as a standalone. 

A chance encounter in the dark leads eighteen-year-old Daniel and the girl who stumbles across him to profess their love for each other. But this love comes with conditions: they agree it will only last one hour and it will only be make-believe.

When their hour is up and the girl rushes off like Cinderella, Daniel tries to convince himself that what happened between them only seemed perfect because they were pretending it was perfect. Moments like that with girls like her don’t happen outside of fairytales.

One year and one bad relationship later, his disbelief in insta-love is stripped away the day he meets Six: a girl with a strange name and an even stranger personality. Daniel soon realizes the way he pretended to feel about Cinderella and the way he really feels about Six may not be so different after all. Especially when the two loves of his life end up being one in the same.

Unfortunately for Daniel, finding Cinderella doesn’t guarantee their happily ever after…it only further threatens it.
 
 
My Review:
5 out of 5 stars
★★★★★
 
Even though this is a novella, it was still packed full of all of the feels that you can expect from a Colleen Hoover book.  There was a twist in this book that punched me in the gut – I wasn’t expecting that at all. Knowing what happened while Six was in Italy though makes her behavior so much more understandable.  
 
I loved Six and Daniel together. I loved their first anonymous encounter in the closet at school. That’s definitely a unique first meeting and was a lot of fun to read. 



Daniel was absolutely hilarious. I loved all of the nicknames that he came up with for everyone. His family was pretty awesome as well. It’s nice when you can joke around and just be easygoing with your family. I loved Six’s character as well. She was spunky, sassy, strong, and matched Daniel in every way possible. I also really enjoyed the friendships between Daniel and Holder and Six and Sky. 

 
I’m going to keep this short to avoid spoilers from this book and the other ones in this series.
