SLAMMED (Slammed, #1)

Slammed (Slammed, #1)Slammed by Colleen Hoover
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am officially got slammed by Slammed. Perfect story…perfect twist…’s just perfect. I didn’t get to sleep after reading this book. It has this effect on those who got slammed by this book.

Layken’s father died unexpectedly and that is why her whole family moved. She hated moving into Michigan not until she met their next-door neighbor, Will. Life in Michigan began to change for Layken. And that also includes her mother’s condition, brother’s friend, new best friend, new school, new teacher…..and slam poetry.

I was never fascinated in poetry of sorts since then. I don’t know why but it was kind of always leaving you hanging especially if you want more. But this slam poetry… this introduced me into a whole new side of poetry. Pretty addicting since it has more meaning than narrating a story and the emotions are overwhelming.

I really love all the characters in this book most especially Layken. She’s not perfect but she tries hard for her family. As for Will, you will definitely know more about him by his poetry. His’ are always so powerful and really has a lot of meaning on life and death.

This is one of the few books that you wouldn’t put down if you’re not finished with it. It is one of a kind. Never I thought I will praise a book with poetry in it. Never I thought I will be hooked with this book. And never I thought I will get to write my own version of slammed poetry:

I was hooked with books again this year
learned a lot with love and life
thanks to authors who gives inspirations
thanks to publishers who still believes

I was hooked with books again this year
gave me fictional friends and families
but they gave me hope in a lot of ways
they gave me something to look forward to everyday

I may use them to forget problems
but it is always worth it
I know they understand that I find happiness in them.

It’s my first time with this.. So yeah…don’t judge me. But if you want more great slam poems, please do get this book and check it out for yourself!
