The maturity, and at times, the lack thereof, and the resilience of these two main characters is well displayed and beautifully written. I loved getting to see who Ingrid is. Her life is full of tragedy and heartache. To see who she is as a result and to see glimpses of who she was before is eye opening. I loved that she digs deep and feels it all. You can tell that Chelsea dug deep into her emotional reservoir to write this character. Ingird is brilliant in her pain and warped world view. She is suffering and learning to cope in new ways every day. Watching her take baby steps throughout the day builds an admiration you cannot deny. Her journey is the beauty of this story and I longed to see her work through the harsh moments and come out stronger than before.
Coen is such a sweet character. You question his motivations from the very beginning, understanding that he is hiding something.Read more ›
Bend Me, Break Me was an incredible read. I picked it up one morning to just read a little bit before working on some chores and didn't put it down until I finished. I was just drawn right in and man...Ingrid and Coen are just so amazing together. He is so sweet and just what she needs. Oh I loved this story.
Ingrid has suffered some tragedies pretty recently that have left her broken. She tries to stay within herself, not letting anyone else in, not letting herself be happy, just trying to be just by herself. That way no one can hurt her. She doesn't think she should be happy, she doesn't think she should be the same person she was before. She doesn't think she is allowed to be that person.
She is going to school because that is what her parents would have wanted for her. She doesn't really know what she is doing, what she will get a degree in, but she is there. She writes poems sometimes, gets her feelings out that way, but shares them anonymously online. She is perfectly fine being by herself and in her own world until Coen starts showing up.
Coen was so amazing. Sure you know right from the start that he is hiding something from her, that he knows what happened to her because he is somehow connected, but he just wants to help her. Plus he likes her. Really likes her. Probably too much. She is so skittish at first, so not used to feeling things that they have a rough go of it. But he was incredible. He is always there for her, always willing to take her back and be friends again no matter what happens. He just...he is wonderful. He tries to get her to open up some, to let other people in and start to live again. He knows she has a lot that has happened, but he also sees how strong she is and what an amazing person she is.Read more ›
Coen stands out from the start of the book, the hottie has an agenda based around secrets, that much we know. He wants to find an in to quell something in himself, guilt I assumed at first, which is part of the truth, but also, he's pulled in Ingrid's direction as well.
Ingrid wants to be alone, she wants to go to classes, figure out her future and do it all while pulling herself away from anyone and anything that could be lost. Ingrid's been through a tragedy, and in the face of such events, she's pulled back from living. She's sad and upset, and hurt, but mostly she's afraid to allow herself the chance of ever feeling this way again. Ingrid keeps herself locked as tightly inside as she can, which is why she can't understand Coen's desire to start a friendship with her, but she also can't keep him away.
Bend Me, Break Me is full of emotional twists and turns, devestating events have cast a pall over both Coen and Ingrid's lives though in different ways. While Ingrid wants nothing more than to isolate herself, Coen wants nothing more than to pull her out of herself, to show her that its okay to still live her life. She can be happy, she can move on and its worth the risks involved.
There are secrets and buried truths between these two and of course they pop up and cause problems, but I really like how Coen and Ingrid engage each other, how they seem to be just what the other needs, even when they feel they aren't helping any. Chelsea M.Read more ›
