Author: Colleen Hoover
Acquired: Barnes & Noble
My Rating: 5.0!!!
Beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover returns with an unforgettable love story between a writer and his unexpected muse.
Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day before her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel. Over time and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet on the same date every year. Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist.
Every since this book came out I was on the mad hunt for it. I didn't pre-order it since I was on my supposed Book Buying Ban and I "thought" I could wait for it. November 9, is only my third Colleen Hoover book but I knew I had to get my hands on it. So when Amazon was officially sold out I searched at every Barnes & Noble in my 20 mile radius until I found a copy!
At this point I know you all have heard about this book and it's synopsis so I will just get right into everything I liked about this book. First of all I know I am going to enjoy a book when I am won over by the first few pages. With my 10 to 12 hour work days (Oh the joys of a nurses life combined with Los Angeles traffic.) I need a book that will grab my attention and keep me invested from the very beginning. Or else I lose interest and it gets added to my pile of books I have started and have not finished. November 9 had an amazing first chapter and was exactly what I was looking. How our characters first meet is absolutely amazing and kept me riveted.
Even though as the synopsis gives away, our main characters only see each other 1 day a year, however there is so much depth and character development that I was shocked that Colleen Hoover or any author frankly could accomplish that. I know in a few negative reviews that I have read, some people criticize Fallon's character development as they believe it is centered completely on Ben, However I find that not to be true. Ben may push her in the right direction, but as he can only speak to her 1 day a year, I find his involvement to be very minimal.
And lastly probably the most intriguing thing about this book is the amazing twist in the book. It was one that I definitely did not see coming. I usually am pretty good at predicting what is going to happen in books, but I was so invested in to the story and these characters that I was completely shocked. So much so that I stayed up wayyy past my bedtime to see how the book was going to conclude and I have not done that ever since I started my nursing career!
If I had to rate the 3 Colleen Hoover books I have read thus far it would be: 1) Maybe Someday 2) November 9 and 3) Ugly Love! I can't wait to get my hands on more of her books!
