❤ November 9 ❤ Colleen Hoover ❤



• release day: 10 November  2015 ☺

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 of 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.

ARC received from publisher for an honest review

You know, each and every time I pick up a Colleen Hoover, I say to myself  "she can't do better than ..." (whichever is the last of her books I have read).

But each and every time she blows that thought right out of the water, and it was not different with November 9.

I loved the premise of November 9 - after a chance meeting, Ben and Fallon to decide to meet up on the same day every year for the next 5 years, but will have no contact for the rest of the year.

Told from Ben and Fallon's POVs, through trials and tribulations, through relationships, careers, lives in general, the reader can feel the excitement as November 9 comes around each year.  The anticipation, the fear, the wondering - are they as wonderful as they remembered?

As the years progress, Ms Hoover does things to me

3rd November 9 - my heart breaks

4th November 9 - this happens - and I am sure Ms Hoover loved doing it to us!

Last November 9 - I swear she was trying to kill my by dehydration as I am sure  I looked like this

As much as November 9 is a story about love, it is a story about friendship, loss, survival.

From the minute I picked it up, I could not put it down.  I just needed to know what was going to happen to our lovelies as each year passed.

November 9 is a beautiful story that will at times break your heart, and needs to go on your TBR list!

I can't wait to see what Ms Hoover brings us next
