Colleen Hoover Explores Family Secrets in "Without Merit"

Adrian Liang on October 06, 2017

Without Merit by Colleen HooverAs bestselling author Colleen Hoover explains about her novels, "My personal goal is to make them as different as they can be so that readers don't know what to expect."

This is a hard trick to successfully pull off, as readers tend to return to their favorite authors because they do know what to expect. But Hoover has built enormous trust between herself and her readers, and they willingly put themselves into her hands.

Hoover's latest book, Without Merit, hit shelves on October 3 to much acclaim. Here she talks about the book, the reader reaction to last year's gut-wrenching novel It Ends with Us, and her philosophy on how to write the best book she can.
