You can agree or disagree with it.** DNF at about 30%Domestic abuse is a sensitive topic and rises a lot of moral questions. And it is not an easy topic to discuss.

    • I love books with messages. This book gives us lessons. Be strong. Stand up for yourself. Never doubt you are worthy of love. Never let anyone make you believe you are anything but precious. Lily's story touched me. Abused. Hurt. Abandoned. She was a pawn for quite a while. Her father did not care. He hurt her. Her first love used her as well until she was broken. A teenage girl with no future gives us a great lesson in strength and humility.The book very tastefully handles heavy themes of abuse [...]


    • Also available on the WondrousBooks blog.To be honest, I feel somewhat guilty when I give a low rating to a book addressing issues as serious as these, like Ugly or This Is Where It Ends. But the thing is, with both of these books I have this nasty feeling that the topic has been milked. As far as Ugly goes, however, my main issue was not with the idea of the book, but rather with the writing style of the author.First of all, I want to say something about the topic of Ugly: domestic violence is [...]


    • I was lucky enough to be given an ARC for this book before release. All I can say is WOW, this book blew me away. Lily's story will pull at your heart strings, no scrap that, it will crush your heart, make it bleed. This story is not for the faint hearted. My heart broke for Lily right from the very first page, and every page after, as her story unfolded. I felt a wide range of emotions while reading Ugly. Sadness, heartache, anger, pure-f@cking-rage. There were times I wanted reached into the b [...]


    • Well Damn. This was good. UGLY isn't your classical love story. No. Not even close. It's dark and deep. It takes us inside woman's head who's been abused her whole life. It starts when she's still a teenager and her father beats her and verbally insults her. She goes days without food because he can't be bothered to buy it.Then Trent came to the picture and I thought "good, he'll save her and proctect her from her father". He seems to do just that. For a while Trent seems perfect. He's patient, [...]



    • 3.5Possible spoilers ahead. You have been warned. I try to stay clear of these type of books. Books that deal with real life issues. I get enough RL as it is. This "spoke to me" and I had to get it. I have never been in a physically abusive relationship, but I have gone thru some verbal/emotional abuse. Nothing as intense as Lily. I know a lot of the reviews call the MC "stupid" and "unrealistic" for staying with her dad and **POSSIBLE SPOILER** Trent. I do not find her stupid at all. I find her [...]


    • This had potential, but fizzled out quickly for me. It's a pet-peeve of mine when a book's title is over used within the contents of the bookI mean, come on! How many times can we hear the word "ugly" in a row here?! The characters were all flat. I get that this is a tough subject, but there was no depth given to any of the scenes or any chances for the characters to be brought to a level of understanding where I would care about them. And the ending was just meh. Far fetched and pretty cliché, [...]


    • What this book is about: In this story we follow Lily, an almost 18-year-old girl who lives with her abusive (physically and mentally) father. Her mother died some years ago and all Lily has learned from her father is how ugly, incapable, stupid and insignificant she is. On her way back from school one day, she meets a guy named Trent who is the first person ever to tell her she is beautiful. After a particularly nasty night at her father's house when he was drunk and beat her to unconsciousness [...]


    • DNF at 35%I hate giving negative reviews. I especially hate giving negative reviews to books that were kindly given to me for free by the author. But that's what it is about in the end, right? My honest opinion.And honestly, this book just made me angry and depressed. I knew this wasn't going to be a feel-good read. I was expecting and looking forward to something dark, something gritty, something to stir my emotions and make me uncomfortable. And that, it did.Abuse, whether it be of domestic, s [...]


    • This book was a difficult read to say the least. The contents of this book makes you cringe, cry, furious and heartbroken. Along with that you also feel strength, hope, love, trust and self discovery. I loved this book and the journey it took me on. Emotional rollercoaster it definitely is and worth every moment. This book was beautifully written and told. I will say this book is one that I won't forget. Along with Lily, Max and the other characters that stood by Lily in her darkest hours and ha [...]


    • 2 StarsOverall Opinion:I think this had some potential, but sadly failed. I like a good angsty read every once and I while, and I couldn't connect enough with the characters to get emotional. I was bored. (view spoiler)[ It was WAY too easy for the h to leave her husband. I felt like the climax of leaving him just fizzled out and was very anticlimactic. She has some nasty encounters with him much later, but I don't think it was handled well in that it was months after leaving him and their divor [...]


    • I received an ARC for an honest review of UGLY by Margaret McHeyzerLet me start with "I LOVED THIS BOOK!" Ugly is different from books that I usually read it was intense and dark. I was angry with Lily for continuing to allow the abusive relationships to continue. Lily continuously takes the blame for the terrible things that happen to her, she believes she is ugly and stupid and her self esteem is non-existent. The story turns around and Lily finally has had enough, she is hesitant to lean on o [...]


    • Unfortunately, Ugly was not my cup of tea. From hearing about this book on a regular basis and having good ratings, my high expectations dwindled as I went further into the book. I thought the domestic violence should have been handled more carefully. The vulgarity was off the charts and overused. I understood the root of this novel was just that "Domestic Violence". And going in, the subject was going to be heavy on the reader's hearts. But this novel lacked a storyline, and was filled with the [...]


    • Reviewed @ Confessions From Romaholics Review copy kindly provided by author in exchange for a honest reviewEver so often I come across a book that blows me away. I know with Ugly I was going to get a book that I would LOVE but I never thought I would get a book of this magnitude. A book that I sit here as I write this review, wondering two things. Why I haven’t read anything by this author before and where the heck did this book come from. As quiet simply I don’t know if I can write a revie [...]


    • WARNING: This book is DARK! Also, the main character had no one in her life to show her love, care for her, and help her. Her reasoning for sticking with Trent is because she feels like she's to blame. She thinks she's too stupid and ugly. It's what everyone tells her so it sticks. Please do NOT go into this book thinking she is dense.5 'Snowflake' starsLily is mentally, physically, and emotionally abused by her father at a very young age and it doesn't stop. His words and his actions are so cru [...]


    • This was a heart-wrenching trainwreck. I could see the horrible things that were going to happen to poor Lily from the first page and there was no way of stopping it, and in that regard it killed me. This was very blunt and very explicit, and a sign of strong story telling.Though I didn't particularly race through this book, I found myself often unable to look away and resultantly stayed up half the night to finish it. I loved how blunt and unforgiving this was, how matter-of-fact the telling of [...]


    • Wowis story was brilliant and I'm not sure I can truly put into words how deeply it touched me. Lily's story was so intense, so gripping I had a hard time putting it down. From the first few pages I was sucked into a world where pain, heartache and loss were so overwhelming. I felt everything Lily felt, yet there was no way I could jump through the pages and help her. I'm not going to lie, there were moments throughout this story I gasped for air, the struggles she faced are so true, so real tha [...]


    • 4 stars!Ugly is DARK, intense and abusive, it's raw, real and painful. At times I had to walk away from the book angry because of Lily's excuses and reasoning. She like most victims, blames herself for all the terrible things that happen to her. But don't give up on her, she finally decides to do something about her circumstances and with the support of friends, loved ones and an unexpected gentleman. Lily is able to turn her world around and the ending is absolutely phenomenal! Well done Margar [...]


    • Wow This was a pretty difficult read I think in the back of my mind I didn't allow myself to think that some of this stuff, somewhere, to someone, is reality I swear, I was a big depressing bag of misery while reading Very difficult I don't want to say much on how this book evolves, but it covers a full journey


    • I hate rating a book that approaches a tough subject so low, but I felt I had to in this case. Abuse, domestic violence, and sexual abuse are very hard subjects to talk about, write about, and think about. While it is the reality for many, it is easy to shy away from the subject and remain blissfully unaware. I don't feel that way, I want to embrace the problem and bring hope for a better future. I applaud books that approach it, that can open up the communication lines for friends, family membe [...]


    • What an apt title for this book. There is so much 'ugly' in this world and unfortunately for Lily she is surrounded by it for the majority of her childhood and well into adulthood. No one should ever have to endure a life such as Lily's. As a reader I was fully submersed into that world, making it a difficult book to read; it was so sad and just hurt so much.Though the conditions are harsh this book is about survival. It's about being conditioned to believe in lies and then fighting to overcome [...]


    • Tenho amigos que amaram esse livro e outros dois que detestaram, porém a minha avaliação é que, foi uma grande história sim, mas a personagem as vezes era muito chata e mesmo assim o livro ainda passa uma grande mensagem. Esse é um livro 8 ou 80, nem todo mundo vai gostar, mas terá gente que vai amar como eu amei.


    • Это самая тупая и уродливая книга! По крайней мере, первая её половина это точно. Про вторую мало что могу сказать, только то, что она никакая, и я читала её уже через страницу. Смысл "Уродины" (если, конечно же, он здесь был) можно понять, пропуская добрую половину книги.Надо оо [...]


    • Oft bin ich beim Lesen nah am Wasser gebaut und muss, sofern mich eine Geschichte eben berührt, schon mal das ein oder andere Tränchen verdrücken. Was allerdings "UGLY" mit mir angestellt hat, habe ich bisher nur sehr sehr selten erlebt. Das erste Mal flossen die Tränen auf Seite 16 und ab da mindestens zweimal in jedem Kapitel. Und das bis zum Ende. Das Schicksal der Protagonistin hat mich absolut mitgenommen und so flossen die Tränen nicht nur aus Trauer um dieses junge Leben das die schr [...]


    • ✯✯5 Beautifully Ugly Stars!!!✯✯I was nervous to read this. I was both mentally and physically abused so I went into this book with my guard up. I fell in love with Margaret when I read her bookA Life Less Brokenand Allyn she's still one of my all time favorites. But, Ugly wow!!! It's a YA book and very dark on top of that. This is a must read. Lily lives with her father.Her mother passed away. Her father is an unbelievably cruel, evil, violent, drunk ugly piece of crap. There I said it! [...]


    • 4.5 StarsLily doesn't know what it is to live in a home where you have a loving caring family. Her mom passed away years ago and she is being raised by her father, if that's what you want to call it. He's horrible! He's atrocious! He's an absolutely deplorable human being. He not only hurts her physically but emotionally as well. Lily has no one to turn to, she does everything to be invisible to her teachers and peers at school and it's been working, until one day a boy smiles at her. Soon that [...]


    • This book was so powerful. I could not put it down. Lily's story is amazing and heartbreaking at the same time. To go from one abusive household to anotherLily has grown up feeling worthless, because well, that is what she was told. She was told this so often she believed it. There was a tragic accident that happened when she was very young and that is when everything started. Now at 17 she finally has the strength to leave her father behind and not look back. Little does she know, her savior Tr [...]
