Reviews ~ Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover

Finding Cinderella (Hopeless, #2.5)Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve had this novella at home for a while now, but I hadn’t read it yet. So as soon as the audiobook came out, I began listening and I loved it and I loved it more.

This was such a great addition to the Hopeless series. Daniel and Six and their Cinderella story touched me so much and I had major tears for most of the book. But the tears were so worth it.

We got little bits and pieces of Dean and Sky and that made my day. But when you read, or listen in this case, Daniel, Six, Holder, and Sky all together and their friend dynamics, you just melt. Daniel is funny, amazing, and charismatic. I loved him. But he loves Dean Holder. LOL!! (You need to read it)

Just go read it… it’s amazing. It can stand alone, but it’s always better if you’ve read Hopeless and Losing Hope first so you can meet Holder and Sky.


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.
