WOW! This book was so amazing. I felt like I was on an emotional roller coaster the entire time I was reading it, but damn it was good. I have a book hangover, and I can’t decide what I want to read next. Colleen Hoover has such a great writing style, and I love the humor in her book. She writes with someone who has gained a lot of wisdom from her life experiences, and because of that, I feel like I can relate to her characters and stories. I cannot wait to read another one of her books. ( )

I'm not crying. you're crying. not me. never me.

Okay, so as a lot of you may know I discovered Colleen Hoover about 6 months ago, Slammed was the first book I read and did I ever love it. Through all three of the books I sobbed like a baby the entire time, and when I say the entire time, I'm 100% serious.

So, naturally, when it comes to Colleen Hoover, I have to dedicate myself to reading her books in a setting I know i'll be okay to cry in. So I bought this book over a month ago, but kept looking at it and thinking "I refuse to experience emotional trauma today" and I continued that until two days ago, when I was like "ok fine, November 9, I hear you calling my name from my shelf....fine" and so it began.

I was surprised when I didn't spend the entirety of the book crying, I was surprised that I was actually 100% okay with what was happening like 70% of the time, I'm sure that would be different if we read about all the other days of the year, but we didn't. It's only November 9, which is what makes this book so incredible. I thought the concept of the book was weird after reading the book One Day and not loving it, I was a bit hesitant (and I laughed really hard when Hoover referenced One Day).

Lets talk about our characters for a minute.
First we have Fallon, the daughter of a hollywood actor, who was once the lead actress on a show of her own until an accident left her scarred.
Then we have Ben, glorious Ben. Ben who I loved but hated at the same time. Ben has been through a lot of his own stuff.
Both of our characters had a life changing event happen on November 9th, this book changes the date from something negative to something positive for the both of them. This book was hella angsty, which made sense. This book was full of reading references which I absolutely loved (the TBR reference made me laugh). This book is more than just a book about an author and his muse. Thats what it seems like at first but its so much more than that. These two characters grow so much throughout the years they meet.
They go from teenagers to adults, from being unsure to being 100% sure, from not knowing love to being completely head over heels in love, from being scared to being confident. The transformation of them both is incredible.

My only issue with this book was some of the very cringe worthy quotes, most of which coming from Ben, but at the same time I think they fit in wit his character, yes he seems a bit controlling, yes he seems a bit obsessed, but when you reach the end and you read the final few chapters its like it all just clicks (it did for me anyways). Seriously, it all made sense and I was absolved of any negative feelings I harbored for Ben (haha. kinda like Fallon)

This book just did it for me, it was funny, cute, a romance that makes me wish I could be Fallon, and surprisingly I didn't cry until the very very end, the last 5 pages got me, the last 5 pages I was a blubbering idiot in my bed begging to be held. For a book to make me feel like Colleen Hoover always manages to do, it takes a lot, I am not an overly emotional person. I don't cry often, but my god, if a damn good love story with a lot of angst and a lot of problems that still has a happy ending ends up in my hands? I cry.

Overall, the characters were well thought out, not only to fit together but to make the reader like them both for a majority of the book. The story was unique. It was fast paced (which I expected, how could it be slow when it takes place over one day every year???). The story made me feel a lot of things. There's just a lot about this book? its good. ITS REALLY GOOD.

read it.
again, I'm not crying. You're crying. ( )

It's been some time since I read a book that falls entirely under the romance category. Also, the last time I read Colleen Hoover was in 2016 with It Ends with us. At the beginning of this reading, I was very skeptical because of how Fallon and Ben met which was not realistic at all (we meet people by pure coincidence at the restaurant now?) but also because of the connection that was instant between the two. It gave me a little Harlequin side, too good to be true.
But the more I read, the less I wanted to stop. I find the Fallon - Ben relationship rather original (although silly but good): Two young people who decide to have only one day of the year to see each other: November 9th until Fallon's 23th birthday.Why? Because Fallon's mother had advised her to live her life and not devote herself to romantic relationships until she was 23 years old. Honestly, spending 5 years seeing my sweetheart one day in 365/366 days of the year, without any further contact is just unthinkable for me. Even LDR (long distance relationship) couples don't do that oh oh.
Despite this, I liked the story, the book was easy to read, the turn of events was really surprising but the book was okay . I just think that the romantic relationship between Ben and Fallon could have been better exploited.

The great thing about the Colleen Hoover novels I’ve read so far is that they all have a big twist. Of course, November 9 is no exception although the twist comes quite late. I still didn’t suspect it though!

The story is told in the first person by Fallon and Ben, who meet when they are both eighteen. Fallon is moving to New York imminently and is having one last meal with her father. Her father is critical of her choices, and Ben steps in as her (fake) boyfriend. They of course, hit it off, but a relationship won’t work. Instead, they agree to meet on November 9 each year. If one of them doesn’t show up, they know that they’ve moved on. No social media, no texts, no letters. The story then moves through multiple November 9s, where Ben and Fallon’s lives become more complex but they still feel something for each other. But then they start to drift apart, and argue. Then, when everything is solved, Fallon finds the draft manuscript of the story Ben said he would write of their time together. The problem? The story doesn’t reflect what Fallon knows to be true. Could Ben have been using her the whole time for a story?

I must admit that Ben didn’t grab me at first. He’s a smooth talker, full of bravado and a little creepy, even if it’s well intended. (Jumping into a conversation with a stranger and pretending to be her boyfriend – bit odd). Fallon was much more interesting, not just because of her past and self-confidence issues, but the forced change in her career trajectory as a promising young actress. I would have loved a little more of Fallon’s story and her growth to accept her body and rebuild her self-confidence. I found it amusing that Fallon kept saying that she didn’t like instalove in her romances, because it seemed that instalove was exactly what Ben was doing. (But good for Fallon, resisting and listening to her mother – learn to love yourself first). As for the twist…well, it’s big and it’s unexpected. I don’t really think what he did is forgivable, but of course I’m adding my bias because it involves a classic car and on top of that, Ben can only describe it as ‘red’. That definitely makes him not my kind of guy (maybe less underwear obsession, more automotive learning).

I think one of the major things about Colleen Hoover’s novels is they test out what you are willing to overlook and forgive in the name of love and happiness. They divide readers morally, but oh boy, do they make for compulsive reading. (Thank goodness the characters are fictional though – they go through a lot). Very readable and excellent midweek reading.
