BLOG TOUR: November 9 by Colleen Hoover Review + GIVEAWAY! (CLOSED)


NOVEMBER NINE
BY COLLEEN HOOVER



Title: November 9
Author: Colleen Hoover
Publisher: Atria Publishing
Format: earc
Release Date: November 10th 2015

ABOUT NOVEMBER NINE:
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.

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

REVIEW:
It's rare to find a book that can leave you lost for words. When you're finished, everything you had just read consumes your body and you're left sitting there, soaking it all in. It's a beautiful moment to have.   

This story was a huge eye opener for me. It's my first Colleen Hoover book where I fully related to a character. I may not have gone through what Ben and Fallon had experienced, but that feeling of self-doubt, is something that I believe we have all felt. 

When you first meet Fallon, you know right away this girl has some spunk to her and I loved it! Her inner thoughts were funny and sarcastic at times. You discover that she's a girl with many hopes and dreams, but her insecurity is holding her back.

Then you meet Ben, oh Ben. I literally had a huge grin on my face because of him. He had a way of words that will make you swoon for days. He was also mysterious. I was constantly asking myself, "What are your intentions, Ben." I was dying to know what he was all about. I enjoyed how he kept me guessing.


Ben and Fallon together were remarkable. They're a pair you will route for and fall head over heels in love with! There is nothing bad I can say about them as characters. To the first conversation they had with each other, to the very last, was so special. I felt every single word they said to each other, and every moment they experienced. The one thing I loved the most was how, as the story progressed, so did they. Their layers slowly started to shred, and they became more vulnerable. It was absolutely breathtaking.

The dialogue was witty and charming! I enjoyed their conversations about books so much. Even though Ben is a writer, be isn't an active reader. Fallon is a huge romance novel lover, and it was so adorable when she would say phrases us book lovers know about. Read this book, and you will know what I am talking about! 


Overall, this a story that defines the sacrifice you make for love, and the journey through your own self-worth. It has easily become one of my favorite books this year. I was left with many tears in my eyes, a smile on my face, and a heart filled with hope.

I do wish you all can take something away from this book, I sure did.

I stopped writing for months because I felt like I wasn't good enough. I had no inspiration left for my story, and the joy of writing slowly started to disappear.

Until now.

If I can make one reader feel even a fraction of what Colleen has made me feel from this book, then I think I'll be alright.
