5,000 reviews? Holy crap!

HOPELESS has just hit 5,000 reviews on Amazon!  After only three months of release, that’s freaking amazing.  Thank you so much to everyone who decided to leave a review after reading that book.

It also got me to thinking about how I heard once that 1% of readers actually take the time to review books.  5,000 readers is 1% of 500,000 people!  So I checked and sure enough, Hopeless has just surpassed half a million ebooks in worldwide sales.  Half a million people have read that book!


A freaking.



That’s a lot of people.  More people than I know or will ever know or will ever meet.  You would have to meet half a person a day for a million days to meet half a million people. That’s like 125,000 whole puppies cut into fourths. That’s like the population of Las Vegas.  Or Sacramento.  It’s like if you counted all the limbs of 125,000 people, assuming they still have all their limbs, you would have half a million limbs.  It’s like 499,000 more people than fans of Nickelback. It’s like a quarter of two million people, which is how many people it takes to make half a million people if a whole lot of them die.

My point is… half a million people!

That makes me feel really nervous.

I think I need to give away my very last, unreleased galley copy of HOPELESS as a big thank you to all you HALF A FREAKING MILLION PEOPLE that read this book.  Lucky for you, I don’t have half a million followers, so your chances aren’t bad. Just comment below with whatever the heck you want to comment with and you just might be the lucky winner of the last galley copy.  <3

  1. Somebody necessarily help to make severely posts I would state.
    This is the very first time I frequented your website page and up to now?
    I surprised with the analysis you made to create this particular publish extraordinary.

    Great job!

  2. There’s certainly a lot to know about this issue. I like all the points
    you’ve made. – FYI : if you need complete information about Milia RemovalMilia Treatment, please visit Milia Removal Blog

  3. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  4. Congrats! Such a wonderful book! Once I started the first page I couldn’t put it down.I would be honered if u picked me! Defently going to look for other books u have written and read them :)

  5. I drop a comment each time I especially enjoy a article on
    a site or I have something to contribute to the discussion.

    Usually it’s caused by the sincerness communicated in the article I read. And after this post 5,000 reviews? Holy crap! | Colleen Hoover. I was excited enough to leave a thought :) I actually do have some questions for you if you do not mind. Is it only me or do a few of the remarks appear like coming from brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on additional social sites, I would like to follow you. Would you list every one of your communal pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  6. Hey how about a guy for once? Even a 70 year unemployed balloon maker who is also
    An unemployed musician who just loves your
    Books. I will even trade you a copy of my unreleased retirement album! “Unsweetened after 43 years”

  7. This was one of the only books that TRULY caught me off guard! Just when I thought I had it figured out…BAM!! Thank goodness I didn’t have to keep up with any pigs! I’d have been a mess for sure!! :)
    Congrats on all of your success, it is VERY MUCH DESERVED!!! Keep em coming!!

  8. The INSTANT I read your book I was hooked on you! I have all the releases in my Google calendar, I have it listed on my hard calendar, and I am feverishly looking for posts to see if you will be near the area for you to sign my books. I have purchased both e-books and paperbacks. I am a BIG FAN!! Enjoy your success, Colleen!!

  9. Hey, I was one of those reviewers! I love Hopeless and recommend it to anyone that will listen!

    Love your blog posts they always make me LOL, like for real, I’m not just saying it. My family thinks I’m crazy when I am laughing hysterically at my computer screen and want to know what YouTube video I’m watching, they don’t understand when they see the screen and it’s all just words… you are bemazing with words!

  10. Congrats sooooooo much!!!!!
    It feels almost like an honour to have been 1 of those 500,000 people!!!! I know at least 100 of them though!
    You deserve it! You saved my life from this book and probably other life’s aswell!
    Im grateful because of what you did an you did it without thinking of yourself!

    Love loads

  11. You absolutely deserve it. I LIVED your story and after many months still think about it. If that’s not the sign of true talent i don’t know what is!

  12. I loved Hopeless so much that I bought it for my sister and for my friend. They both loved it as well…I’m also one of those 5,000 reviwers! 😃 Congrats! Keep up the good work!

  13. And of course you can’t forget all who have made BLOG reviews on Hopeless (like me!!) so way over 5,000 reviews for the impeccable story!! :D Half a million people?? Ermadgerddddd!!! Yay yay yay yay! How many physical copies have sold thus far?

  14. So excited for you! I haven’t read Hopeless yet (tragedy, I know!), but I read and ADORED Slammed and Point of Retreat, so I’m anxious to read Hopeless (and This Girl when it’s released)!

    Congrats again–you couldn’t be more deserving, and I can’t wait to see what new and exciting stories you share with us :)

  15. I loved this book as well as the Slammed series and I cannot wait for This Girl! I cannot wait to read more books as you are an amazing author! Thank you for sharing your stories! =)

  16. Coleen, you’re a Hoot!!! How do you meet a half a person a day? Hahaha!!! Oh,and btw….I’m one of the half a million and Hopeless is freaking fabulous!!!!!

  17. That is fan-freaking-tastic! Congrats! I am constantly promoting your books and it’s awesome when I recommend one to someone and they’ve already read it and we get to discuss how much we adore you! :)

  18. I love your books!!! I can’t for your new books to be released! <3 You have officially turned me into a book worm =)

  19. I loved everything about you … until the jab about Nickelback – then i decided we probably couldn’t be friends because i would sing Nickelback to you all the time because you love them so much. That’s ok-I’ll still read all your books and probably store them all on the shelf next to my Nickelback memorabilia. Congrats on the sales and reviews lady!!!!

  20. More than half a million have read Hopeless, thinking of all the people who used the lendme feature!

    Congrats well deserved!

  21. That is so a wonderful accomplishment for such a wonderful book! I know that after I read Hopeless, I couldn’t wait to share my thoughts with everybody that would listen!

  22. Your books are amazing!!! I loved Hopeless!!! I have already read it twice. I have read all your books and can’t wait for the next one. Keep doing what your doing! It’s awesome!

  23. Addicted to reading now because of your books! Thank you’ Oh and addicted to saying butterfly in front of my kids!

  24. Yay! Congratulations! I love your books Colleen and I’m really happy for you! Your success is totally well-deserved! :)


  25. I’m not surprised that Hopeless has sold half a million copies – its an amazing book, one of my all time favourites, and one that I recommend to anyone who asks me what they should read next. In fact the first thing I say to people who ask me that is ‘have you read any of Colleen Hoover’s books? ‘ keep on writing those amazing stories and you will be surpassing 1 million sales before you know it!

  26. THIS IS AMAZING! I just now realized that even though my review is up on GR and my blog, than it’s not on Amazon and I’ll get right on it;-) Hopeless was the perfect book to end 2012 for me and if there would have been an apocalypse, I wouldn’t have been very pissed, because come on! I read Hopeless and it was fantastic! I hope your success continues and million isn’t far away;-) By the way, I saw that comment about your tattoo – Head full of Doubt is my favorite song by the Avett Brothers so yay for that – it’s a great choice!!

  27. What can i say to you that wasnt said yet? Anyways, your family must be so proud of you. When did start writing? Having this talent? Is it too late for me now? LOL

  28. Congrats on half a million, and I am honored to know I am one of the people that reviewed your book. I have read it twice now, and I know I will go back and read it again soon. I wish you all the best and can’t wait for your next two releases, which I have already pre-ordered. Keep writing and sharing your amazing gift with us please!

  29. Congrats in the half a million! I LOVED Hopeless!

  30. The numbers don’t lie…Your books are freaking fantastic!…seriously some of the most creative writing and heart touching stories I’ve read.

  31. Woot woot give away on my birthdayyyyyy!! lol, (it was yesterday but butterfly it) Wow that’s amazing!! I read this book in a day, made me cry like a little baby <3… Is there going to be a follow up book to hopeless?

  32. Congratulations!!! That’s really amazing and totally deserved. Wishing you many, many book success in the years to come :)

  33. Congratulations!! After this novel you have officially been put on my shelf of favorite authors. Sometimes your writing made me jealous, because half the time I was thinking ‘I wish I could’ve thought of that’. :) Seriously, this book was SPECTACULAR. :D

  34. Congratulations! This is the first book I’ve read of all of your books, and I simply loved it. I adored Dean Holder, and I wished all through the book that I was seventeen again and I was Holder’s girlfriend! I was very pleased to write my review on Goodreads, because I wanted the whole world to know how much I loved this book! I’m looking forward to reading more of your books!
    PS loved “the best first kiss” written in Holder’s POV. :-)

  35. OMG!! That’s amazing, and its all because YOU ARE AMAZING!! This would be the best thing EVER to win!! So happy for you <3

  36. I typically don’t review books because I never know what to write. I may give them a “star” rating but that’s about as far as it goes in the written format. I do give verbal recommendations to friends though – and yep, everyone has heard about all of your books. :)

  37. You deserve every review, every word-of-mouth referral, every single copy purchased. Hopeless and the Slammed series OWN me and I’m so excited for the new releases this year. Congrats on your success!!!!

  38. That is amazing Colleen! OMG, I loved Hopeless, can’t wait for Losing Hope! And a copy of Hopeless would look mighty fine on my shelf next to my Slammed Series!!! As always, you are amazing <3

  39. Thanks to some random oldies radio station, Peter, Paul & Mary won’t quit with their jam session in my head. So, here’s my comment:

    So kiss me and smile for me,
    Tell me that you’ll wait for me,
    Hold me like you’ll never let me go.

    I’m leaving on a jet plane
    I don’t know when I’ll be back again.
    Oh, babe, I hate to go.

    There. I hope you all get that stuck in your heads and we can all be doomed together. Toodles!

  40. wow that’s amazing! Congratulations!! I love this book & I’m glad so many other people have read it and obviously loved it as much as I did!

  41. Imagine if you had continued with your thought of NOT writing. Congrats! Let’s just hope a whole lot of half a million people don’t die so we can replace them with a quarter of two million people. It wouldn’t be so nice ;)

  42. That’s what you get when an amazing author writes an amazing story! Loved it and cannot wait to read more of your books.

  43. I absolutely loved this book! It was one of the best books I’ve ever read. :)
    Congrats on the wonderful success, and to much more to come! I’m definitely going to start the Slammed series soon, for sure. :)

  44. Colleen, Congratulations! Your success is very much deserved! I am looking forward to reading more of your words!!! You are such a special person. Enjoy your weekend!

  45. The above posts are going to inflate your ego so much, you’ll explode! We need to rectify this situation before you start suffering from delusions of grandeur.

    Your books suck ass. And your posts are really not that funny.

  46. I LOVE all of your books!! You keep writing and I will keep reading. I’m not surprised you have that many reviews. Once someone reads their first book, you get a reader for life. We just want others to know what we already know, that your books ROCK!!!

  47. “Hey, I will probably never meet you, cause HALF MILLION is crazy, but here is my comment, so make me win Hopeless MAYBE?” (I don’t know why I started thinking of this song but I did). I am curious about your tattoo though. will you show it to us sometimes? I haven’t left a review on amazon for Hopeless, but I left one on Goodreads.

  48. Wow that is awesome!!! You deserve it for being such a great author! Literally can not wait for Will’s story :)

  49. No kidding! That is a crap-ton of people! But a good book deserves to have as many people read it as possible – well deserved! I’ll continue to recommend your book and, who knows, in 3 more months you may double that number! Here’s hoping for Hopeless!

  50. Colleen, this does not surprise me is the least bit….I tell everyone about “Hopeless” It is such an AWESOME story…I love it. I can not wait for your next book. :~)

  51. CONGRATS!!!!! I am not surprised, i knew there would be so many who would go from i live this book to i love this book.

  52. Wow! That’s so freaking awesome!!! I’m glad my girls&I are included in this #. Love HOPELESS & SLAMMED. Can’t wait to read what the boys have to say ^.^

  53. Congrats Colleen! That is super awesome!! I loved Hopeless and can’t wait for your next books. I need a Will and Holder fix!

  54. Congratulations on the success of Hopeless. You certainly deserve it. Hopeless was AMAZING…definitely one of my favorites and a book I will read again. I cannot wait for Losing Hope.

  55. That is awesome and congrats. I yet think you should a write a book like your blogs…they are so funny, I would imagine I would laughing out loud with an entire book ( just something to think about…hint hint)

  58. Can’t wait to have that puppy in MY hands!! I was so floored by this book, I pre bought 2 copies to give away. Your words are truly gifts to all of us! Thanks & Happy Easter!

  59. I am hopelessly in love with Hopeless! The book was amazing! Everyone that I have told to read it has always came back to me in tears thanking me for having them read the book. Colleen Hoover you truly are an amazing and gifted writer…. Thank you!

  60. Hopeless is simply amazing! I ranted and raved about your book and convinced tons of people they were missing out if they didn’t start reading your book right away. Once they read, they couldn’t agree more. You are an amazing author! I can’t wait to meet you at the Orlando Book Bash!!

  61. Congrats Colleen!
    I bet it’s even more people than that! Anyone that hasn’t read your books is completely deprived-they’re so amazing!

  62. Your amazon and it was a well deserved amount of people to follow you! Keep up the amazing work! And I’m so happy for you!

  63. I’m commenting not to win, I already have a signed copy. But, I just want to tell you that someone with your talent deserves that half a million or and 499,000 non-nickleback fans ( the 999 fans are coming, they are just slow to the party). I hope you never stop writing and I’ll most definitely never stop buying your books!! I’m even thinking about getting some type of “hopeless” tattoo. And I only save my tattoos for books that have really made an impression on me!! Just gotta think up the design.

    1. I’ve been thinking about getting a tattoo for this book, too. You know, since it pretty much changed my families life. lol. I thought a tiny star on my pinky? You know, for the stars and the pinky-holding? I don’t know, though. Still contemplating.

  64. Congratulations! I think tha’ts awesome! Since I was lucky enuogh to win a copy of your book on goodreads, if I win this I will give it to my friend who’s obssessed with your book and was the one to recommend this amazing book. :D

    I can only imagine how exciting it would be to have your very own creation read and loved by so many people over the world!!
    Would love a book number 2 though..

  114. If I feel strongly about a book, I write reviews. I do this as a courtesy to my fellow readers. I know I rely on reviews others have left to choose the books I read. I LOVED your books, so naturally I left reviews for them, on both amazon and goodreads. Some super smart person should create an app the allows you to write one review and post it to amazon, goodreads, and Barnes and Noble with just one click.

  115. Holy cow! That’s freaking awesome! This gives new meaning to the ass spanking intro on Nightline! Who’s holding the whip now!!??!! ;)


  117. Oooo…to get my hands and eyes on that copy of Hopeless…that would be one butterflying awesome thrill! I think I’ve told half a million people about that book…okay, at least my 400 FB friends, all my coworkers, and anyone else who will listen… I love it so much. What a wonderful, wonderful read!

  118. Your story is absolutely amazing. I’m.glad so many people have been smart enough to figure that out. Is be lucky to.win buy if not ill still remain a fan of your work!!!

  119. I am HOPELESS without Colleen Hoovers books! ABSOLUTLY the BEST AUTHOR!! She is ” THAT GIRL” with her there is no “POINT OF RETREAT” The rest of the world is ” SLAMMED shut when you get lost in a COLLEEN HOOVER BOOK! Get all of her books you won’t be left disappointed!

  120. That’s a huge number, but small for such an amazing book. Hopeless is the first book I have ever told friends they HAD to read, not that they should read if they were looking for something different. Thank you for being you and telling beautiful stories. You have given me that last kick in the ass to seriously sit down and right. I owe you girl. :)

  121. You’re the cutest!!
    Hopeless deserved all the reviews and more! It was seriously by far the greatest book I’ve ever read. The amount of goosebumps and tears it left me with was countless. You’re amazing!!!

  122. I knew from the moment I read the first sentence I would be in LOVE with Hopeless. You are a fantastic author and truly an inspiration.
