  1. There are now three years and over five hundred books between me and my completion of Suzuma s Forbidden The last three years have seen my reading tastes change a lot books I used to love often start to pale in comparison to newer treasures who do similar things but do them far better So I don t know how I would feel if I read Forbidden now but, going on memory alone, I recall liking it a lot I thought the author was brave to tackle such a controversial and edgy subject And I thought it was sad, [...]

  2. I need a moment.YOU CAN T DO THIS TO ME BECAUSE I WAS EXPECTING THIS BOOK IN AUGUST NO JUST NO TELL ME THAT S A GLITCH OR SOME SHIT CAUSE MY EMOTIONSSOMEONE HELP ME cries hysterically please sniffs I I I m gonna meditates __Very excited to read this book Forbidden tore my heart to shreds for one week straight.

  3. 3 STARSOnly because it was not a 2 star read for me, but the disappointment level was pretty high.Since this book was heavy on the metaphors of guilt, insanity and loving on the edge of pain I ll start with a metaphor of my own.Reading this book felt like seeing a beautifully framed photo, in some picturesque place somewhere with two strangers in it and something poetic scribbled artfully in the scene.But you re still in your house Wearing your pajamas at 2 in the afternoon Eating empty calories [...]

  4. 5 HEARTBREAKING, SOUL CRUSHING STARSI m all over the place right now, so this review might not make any sense to you at allFirst of all, this is NOT a happy book It was so consuming, I started crying from chapter 1 No No From the Prologue The way Tabitha Suzuma wrote this story was so beautiful and excellently done I felt myself falling into the words and being wholly consumed by the emotions and feelings in them OH MY GOD It was a roller coaster It was like i was experiencing every little damn [...]

  5. I literally have no idea where to begin with this review nor am I sure I have the words to do it justice What follows is probably going to be a ramble about what I think since I have read this glorious book Hurt is the story of Mattie Mattie wakes up one day with his room smashed to pieces and no memory of why it is so or why from that day on he no longer feels anything and is so sad he is crying himself to sleep most evenings On the face of it he has it all A shot at gold at the Olympics as a r [...]

  6. One week and counting Another book is added to the did not finish pile The will to read has left the building Need intervention, STAT.

  7. The book started out really great, the prologue left me with hundred questions of what happened and when its going to happen In the first chapters we were introduced to Math o s life before the event that ultimetly changed his life, and at first it was interesting, his relationships with his friends and how others saw him etc though I found myself bored really fast with all the detailed descriptions of how his house looks like and how many rooms he has, and how Lola looks like when she smiles So [...]

  9. Tabitha Suzuma is one of those authors that can break your heart with her books and it ll linger with you even years later when you think of the story She did that to me with Forbidden which is currently sitting on my favourites shelf , and I m pretty sure she s just done it again with Hurt although not quite in the same way.This isn t the easiest book to review, because I need to do it without spoilers Not just because it would be horrible of me to spoil a book for someone, but because the thin [...]

  11. Tabitha Suzuma tends to gravitate toward taboo and sensitive subject matter Often heart breaking and hauntingly sad, her stories aren t always the easiest to take in When I finished reading Forbidden, I remember crying myself to sleep and then feeling down and empty for the next several days I felt that way with Hurt too, however I have to agree with the growing consensus that Forbidden is the better novel That said, I think Hurt is beautifully written Lots of pretty words it s like reading a pa [...]

  12. Speechless.There s not much I can say about this book without giving away too much, just that the title is perfect Is better if you start reading it without reading reviews, or details, but know that your heart will end up broken and you will cry.I admit that at first, I wasn t really into the story, but I ended up devouring it, I didn t sleep last night because I wanted to know how it ended.I recommend it, please read it knowing it addresses difficult and sad subjects, but that are important to [...]

  13. Oh man, I see that this book is another tragedy But whatever, Forbidden was worth the tears, sobs and headache

  14. Reflecting on this since the weekend I finished it, I have to admit it doesn t deserve the full load of stars I first gave it There s something about reading angsty, life gone wrong fiction that deprives you of an HEA that sometimes blinds you to the flaws in the narration and side characters, which is the case with Hurt There s some great character development and I really liked Matheo and Lola s relationship at the start of the timeline, but at the same time a lot of unnecessary melodrama and [...]

  19. Holy hell I devoured this in one sitting Just sat and read this for 4 hours straight Most powerful book I ve read on this subject by far Tabitha Suzuma is now one of my favorite authors She knows how to write and fully express the emotions and turmoil of characters And handle these very sensitive, prevalent, and overlooked real life subjects This book deals with an issue that is horribly overlooked not just in books but in society This book can be a powerful eyeopener to a lot of people.

  20. The author CLEARLY had her reasons not to mention hurtful and painful ones choosing such a title This book is wonderful, beautiful and extremely painful P.S remind me to never read anything by Tabitha Suzuma ever again, because i can t remember the last time i cried that hard while reading a book.

  21. Finally have this book to read, after all the waiting and wanting, but I know it s gonna break my heart lip wibbles

  22. Tabitha Suzuma has an affinity for tragedies It s understandable Tragedies are exciting, and people are drawn to them.There s so few writers like her And it makes me wish she wrote so many stories that others could indefinitely read I can testify that her style and flair have the capability of drawing out saturated emotion from a reader without being sensationalised There s a mainstream fetish for abused characters, with dark pasts, or violent tendencies that leave me feeling apathetic I stream [...]

  23. Having read and enjoyed the powerful, heartbreaking and controversial Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma last year, I was looking forward to trying out some of her works I decided upon this, her newest book, after reading numerous good reviews about it over the past few months All I can say is, wow Although very different from Forbidden , Hurt is just as compelling, just as heartbreaking and just as well written as its predecessor It isn t an easy read by any means due to its own difficult subject mat [...]

  25. I found this style of writing to be over indulgent on the author s part, keeping me at arm s length from the story, never really allowing me to connect with any of the characters, including the MC, Matt The writing is overly detailed, descriptive and filled with so many metaphors that I constantly found myself skimming and losing interest in the plot Many interactions between characters and recurring events in the book felt contrived, purposefully trying to manipulate an emotional reaction from [...]

  26. I ve gone over and over how to even go about reviewing this book and the words have escaped me.I went in blind and I wasn t sure what to expect when I started Hurt I ran through several scenarios in my head after reading the first chapter, thinking I had it all figured out I was wrong The first half of the book the author leaves small truths in words and phrases casually left behind, that at first seem unimportant, easy clues that can be applied to all sorts of scenarios Later after I was finish [...]

  27. According to my calendar, 1205 days ago, I finished reading Tabitha Suzuma s Forbidden It feels like last night I can still remember as clearly as ever finishing the last page, having steadily read for most of the day when I received the book in the mail, and well into the early hours of the following day At the time, I didn t think it possible to feel, after reading a novel, any anguish, any pain or any sheer desperation for things to be somehow different I remember sitting at my computer, a [...]

  28. I was so, do disappointed in this book At 42% I almost dnf ed, but wanting to know Math o s big secret is what kept me going.I don t know what happened in this book to make me dislike it so much, but it really just didn t work for me Earlier this year I read Forbidden and it was one of my favourite reads, ever So, automatically I thought to myself that as Tabitha Suzuma was writing something new, I would love it That was my first mistake These books are worlds apart and should not be compared to [...]
