Series Review and Giveaway: After Series by Anna Todd #Hessa
I started listening to the book on February 11th. This audiobook grabbed me from the start. I finished it over the weekend, when normally I don't get that much listened to over the weekend, because I'm not driving in the car as much. But it got me to go to the gym and walk on the treadmill an extra day because it gave me a way to listen to it without just sitting around the house. I had to sit and listen for a couple hours to finish it on the 15th, because it was just so good, and I had to know. Again, normally I would move on and read something on my Nook while I read the 2nd book up before bed. But no. After the way the first one ended, ripping my heart out of my chest, I immediately picked up the 2nd book, 671 pages, and finished it within about 24 hours. The 3rd book, even longer, 834 pages, I also finished in about 24 hours. That night I started, I was working at the bookstore again, and I knew I had to buy the rest of the books immediately so that I could continue reading straight through with no interruptions, there was no way my mind would even entertain any other story. It's a good thing I did, because the store only had one copy of the 4th book. And I also went ahead and purchased the first book, even though I'd already listened to it, because I know that I needed to own the whole series, and would, emotions and all, have to read this series again. I finished all of the books by midnight last night. And I figured I'd just do a big review for the whole series. So, I will do my best to just do some quick little mini-reviews for each book here, so that I won't spoil for those who haven't read them before. This is going to be a long post, so hold on, and I hope I can keep you till the end of the post when I will be giving away your copy of any book in this series, international as long as The Book Depository ships to you.
Book 1 - After
So, after I was able to recover a bit, a few hours later on Monday night, I picked up the sequel, and was glad to be dropped right back into the story so that I could get all the details along with Tessa.
Book 2 - After We Collided:
Book 3 - After We Fell:
Book 4 - After Ever Happy:
Book 5 - Before:
Well, I'm going to have to finish this review. My laptop only has 6% battery left, and it's not comfortable to work on it where I plug it in to charge.. I hate that I didn't talk more about other important characters, my favorite being Landon. But I'm sure I will when I get the new book. And while I'm very excited for a movie to be made, I just hope that they do it right. Don't pick a skinny, no curves girl for Tessa. She's got to have curves. And it has to be rated at least R, as the steamy scenes are the best, better than just about any I've ever read. If you haven't started this series, feel free to enter the giveaway below. If you've started and haven't read on yet because you don't have the next book, enter below for that as well. If you hated the series, I'm sorry. I'm now a #Hessa fan for life. Today is the day I will try to pick up another book, start listening to a different audiobook.
