Without Merit Colleen Hoover read online review & book description:

From Colleen Hoover, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of It Ends With Us, comes a moving and haunting novel of family, love, and the power of the truth.

Not every mistake deserves a consequence. Sometimes the only thing it deserves is forgiveness.

The Voss family is anything but normal. They live in a repurposed church, newly baptized Dollar Voss. The once cancer-stricken mother lives in the basement, the father is married to the mother’s former nurse, the little half-brother isn’t allowed to do or eat anything fun, and the eldest siblings are irritatingly perfect. Then, there’s Merit.

Merit Voss collects trophies she hasn’t earned and secrets her family forces her to keep. While browsing the local antiques shop for her next trophy, she finds Sagan. His wit and unapologetic idealism disarm and spark renewed life into her—until she discovers that he’s completely unavailable. Merit retreats deeper into herself, watching her family from the sidelines, when she learns a secret that no trophy in the world can fix.

Fed up with the lies, Merit decides to shatter the happy family illusion that she’s never been a part of before leaving them behind for good. When her escape plan fails, Merit is forced to deal with the staggering consequences of telling the truth and losing the one boy she loves.

Poignant and powerful, Without Merit explores the layers of lies that tie a family together and the power of love and truth.

    This book wasn’t bad but it’s the 5th book of hers that I’ve read & my least favorite. Had to push through.
  • Another favorite from Colleen

    By Payton_Z
    The beginning of this book was harder for me to get into that most of Colleen Hoover’s other books. But the ending was so worth it! If you find yourself having to push through the beginning and want to give up, don’t you’ll love it in the end!
  • Depressing

    By rayktay
    I couldn’t finish because it was just too depressing. The whole family is crazy and Merit is hard to like.

    In Without Merit, the Voss Family was full of interesting and flawed characters. Their family life was busy with people coming and going. It was easy to forget someone’s schedule or routine with how busy everyone was. Merit was a spontaneous character and the keeper of family secrets. Merit struggled with her identity having been an identical twin who constantly compared herself with Honor. Merit felt isolated, alone, and often times ignored in her busy family, but that was her perception. I knew Colleen had a fantastic sense of humor. In fact, I’m envious of that sense of humor because it makes me want to be near her in case her sense of humor is contagious. I could use some of that humor in my life. Colleen’s rebuttals for accusations was drawn from both sides allowing issues to be discussed from both perspectives. Without Merit included a wild bunch of characters that were oddly fascinating. I felt compelled to turn each page eager for more words. I loved the oddity of these characters especially Merit’s character. Her insecurities about herself were warranted and noted. The dynamics of these characters was entertaining. With themes of trust, perspective, honesty, and perception, Without Merit successfully illustrated the different dynamics in this household. Without Merit focused on many important elements. Together all characters played an intricate part of sharing this story. Each character had an issue that was special and unique to them.
  • Great book.. Need more!

    By Macy6961
    This was a great book but I feel that it ended too soon! As always the writing style of Colleen Hoover is impeccable. I'm left with so many questions after reading this book. I really really really hope there is a follow up to this story!
  • Colleen you SLAY me!!

    By Sj1857
    Yet another heart wrenching and breathtaking book! Never have I come across an author that can make me experience such a myriad of emotions in the span of 5 minutes. At one point, I even called the father the worst name I can think of only to have my heart break for him then proceeded to love him in the end. I can't deal!!! I recommend EVERYONE read this book!
  • Love it
