November 9 by Colleen Hoover

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.

Can Ben’s relationship with Fallon—and simultaneously his novel—be considered a love story if it ends in heartbreak?


Did you know there is such a thing as a genre-snob? Me neither! That is, until I read this book. I discovered that I have been prejudiced against contemporary romance and cheating myself out of beautiful,  emotionally havoc wreaking stories that could I could easily become addicted to! 

November 9 is the first time I've read anything by Colleen Hoover. I mean sure, I've heard her name more times than I could count and yes, she comes highly recommended as an author, but why?

I only have this book to go by, but it's all I've needed to completely change my perspective on genres.  It was immediately intriguing,  and mysterious without the constant allusion to the mystery which in turn created a pretty amazing plot twist. The characters are jaded and so very vulnerable that at times I forgot I was reading a fictitious story! I fell in love with feel good moments of the story in the beginning and stayed on for the love that quickly developed for the characters. Ibtgibk what shocked me the most is that the story was highly entertaining all the way through to the end.  I would give this more than 5 stars if I could and it is safe to say I am now a Colleen Hoover fan. I cannot wait to buy more books written by her! Pick it up! I guarantee you won't regret it!
