Blog Tour Book Review: November 9 by Colleen Hoover



I love being a part of anything that has to do with Hoover's writing because I always know I will love whatever it happens to be. With the case of her new book, November 9, I was once again blown away and thrown on an emotional roller coaster that was so worth the ups and downs. 




Title: November 9
Author: Colleen Hoover
Series: Stand Alone
Published By: Atria (November 10, 2015)
Source: An ARC copy was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Book Description:

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. 






About the Author:


Colleen Hoover is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Slammed, Point of Retreat, This Girl, Hopeless, Losing Hope, Maybe Someday, Finding Cinderella, and Ugly Love. She lives in Texas with her husband and their three boys.






What can I possible say about this read that probably hasn't already been gushed about before me? Or for that matter the greatness that is Hoover's writing.

She always manages to amaze me no matter how many times in the past I have adored her novels, she still manages to surprise me, make me teary eyed and always leave me with a smile on my face. She comes out with fresh new ideas that melt my heart, tear it apart and always mend it back together again. 

She truly is a master at what she does and what she does is write so freaking well that it blows me away, every. Single. Time.

With characters that are instantly relateable and so endearing that you can't help but fall in love with them. I immediately loved both Ben and Fallon and that love only grew as the story wore on. It was so very hard not to get wrapped up in their lives and care about the outcome. I was rooting for them the whole way through and, the best part besides the wonderful slow burning love story? All the book boyfriend cliches! I loved reading about Ben and Fallon and they “discussions” about book boyfriends. It was hilarious! Plus, hello Tate and Miles! Love loved that we get to see these two amazing people again!

All in all, another five star, blow me away, make me weep like a baby read.

  4. I have read many positives for this one, as well as a few not so positives. I am gonna make this one my official CoHo read since I haven't read any of her solo books. I love the Never Never books that she co-penned with Tarryn. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I ran for a copy of this book despite the fact that I've only read two of Hoover's books I found to be...okay at best. I have this hope that one of her books will do for me what it does for so many countless others. I'm thinking I may read it next year but keep your fingers crossed for me. I so want to feel what you felt!

  7. To be honest, I've always been hesitant in reading NA because of all the drama and angst. However your review of this one is making me reconsider. I should definitely checkout a book by this author sometime as I see her name everywhere!

  14. I am beyond embarassed at this point. Honestly, I'm ashamed that I still haven't read anything by Hoover. And she hits all the right notes: relatable characters, excellent romance, believable issues, all of it. I'l have to make time and that's it.

  15. I confess that the author is new to me, but seeing how this book has been floating around the blogsphere quite a bit in recent days, I might just give in and see what the hype is all about! Great review ;)

  17. This boook is polarizing readers, well at least the blogs I follow. It's good that you loved it, some people got tired of the brokeness she's so notorious for

  18. I'm glad that you loved this book. It looks like I should try to fit it in somewhere. I just don't know where.

  19. Haha yes, the way she wove the cliches and tropes in was so much fun. And I was not expecting that UL appearance, but it made me insanely happy.

  21. I loved this as well.It's only the second one I have read by her. My review posted last week on Pure Textuality-and if we still gave stars, it would have been 5 as well! Glad you had a good time with this read :)

  22. Been reading some conflicting reviews on this book. But I'll most likely read it as well because it's Hoover. Lol.

  23. Yay! I've come to expect so much from Hoover that I'm actually afraid to read her books lately in case they let me down. Crazy, right?
