Blog Tour Review + Giveaway: November 9 by Colleen Hoover

Rating: 5 Cups of Coffee
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?

Natasha’s Experience:
I tried writing this review a couple of times and stopped short every time I thought I might be giving something away that wasn’t already mentioned in the blurb. This is exceptionally difficult, seeing as the synopsis of the story really doesn’t give anything away. I thank the synopsis-writing gods for being intentionally vague because you made NOVEMBER 9 that much more incredible.

NOVEMBER 9 tells the story of Ben, the writer, & Fallon, the insecure, beautiful human being. Together, they are an unlikely pair that make love look and feel remarkable.

“I’m never going to meet anyone who makes me feel the way he does. People don’t get this lucky more than once in the same lifetime.”

Ben and Fallon meet and spend one glorious day together in LA, right before Fallon is planning to fly to New York to pursue her dreams of acting. They quickly become comfortable with each other and their connection is seriously sublime. Ben is charming, witty, romantic and seemingly selfless. Fallon is surprised at how at ease she feels with Ben, especially with her insecurities that are always at the forefront of her actions.

“My flaws are what wake me up on the morning and what keep me awake every night.”

The two agree to meet every year on November 9th for reasons that I won't be giving away. Sorry, definitely not sorry! Their lives change with every year that passes -- both positive and negative changes -- that affect both of them separately and as a whole.

I’m actually angry that I finished this book so quickly. Why didn’t I read every single page twice, just to make sure I really digested the words?

“Maybe the grand gestures don’t matter nearly as much as all the inconsequential things between the two main characters.”

Here is where I become ridiculously vague and tell you that you’ve got to read November 9 to begin to understand the reasons why I cried, laughed out loud, clutched at my chest, freaked out (enough to close my kindle app for a solid 10 minutes), and was completely enthralled by Colleen Hoover’s master of a mind.

NOVEMBER 9 is a riveting, surprising and breathtaking story with a unique take on soul mates (if you follow my blog, you know how much I love books on soul mates!!!). There is so much more than meets the eye, an entire subplot that sneaks up on you and leaves you absolutely winded. I was absolutely drunk off of Ben & Fallon’s story and feel that I will be perpetually hung over after this one.
