Book Review: November 9 by Colleen Hoover

I have to thank the book blogging community for putting this book on my radar. I read numerous reviews and mentions and got curious enough to buy the book. I am definitely glad that I did.

Review, shall we?

November 9 by Colleen Hoover is about Fallon, a former actress currently living in the aftermath of tragedy and Ben, an inspiring writer. The two characters meet on November 9. This date becomes an important date in the book since everything revolves around it This is also the one day that Fallon and Ben agree to meet each year over a period of five years. They also agreed not to communicate or contact each other at all apart from on that date.ROMANTIC


I really enjoyed reading November 9. Fallon and Ben were likeable characters. They both had their own struggles but it was great seeing how the relationship impacted on them. I think the author did a great job in developing the story especially given the premise of the relationship whereby the main characters only met once a year.Despite being unusual,it  still seemed believable and kinda romantic.


There are sections of the book that seemed a bit clichéd, too mushy and corny but still this didn’t take away the fact that the story was beautiful. The romance was undeniable.

I also thought it was quite a page turner. It was so fast paced and so I found myself looking forward to the next November 9. The twists were  good. For instance; one of the major twists was finding out how the two characters were actually connected through their pasts.

I never used to be a fan of YA and especially romantic themes but this year has been full of surprises. I really enjoyed reading this book. I can picture it as a movie/film and I hope it will be adapted into one.

    Nice review! I loved November 9, and I read it in one sitting. It was a bit unrealistic, but I didn’t care. I still thought it was a cute read.

    Colleen Hoover is a popular author but I don’t read YA, it is usually a 50/50 chance I will enjoy it and I have to figure out my mood. Nice review, I have been intrigued on this one.

      I hope you get to read this one. I never used to read YA before this year and really struggled through some although others like The Book Thief were pretty good. Hopefully you like this one if you decide to read it.

    I put this one on the back burner last year, because the hype was so real. I still plan to read it before this year is out. Maybe on November 9th 🙂
