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?
If any of you have been reading the blog for long, you know that I’m a huge Colleen Hoover fan. And I can honestly say November 9 is probably the best fucking book I’ve ever read by her. It’s even a top pick for the year. Hoover always manages to bring out the feels. I know when I read her books I’m going to laugh, cry, and curse the world for not having as much beauty in love that she portrays on the pages of her novels.
November 9 shows so much honesty in love, grief, and learning to love yourself. Get over past mistakes, and look for a future. Fallon and Ben are two amazing characters that I won’t forget soon, if ever. I can’t imagine going through they events the both of them have gone through. I loved that the book takes place on the same day for 6 years. We get a small glimpse of the years, but we know everything they’ve felt and accomplished. I loved the ease Fallon and Ben felt around each other. There was no pretending, and they could be themselves. Share their fears, hopes, and dreams. Everyone wants a relationship like that.
November 9 is definitely a book you should have tissues ready for, but it’s not all cry-worthy moments. Be prepared to have your heart completely full with love and emotion. I hope your heart is as full as mine after having read this. Go after love, don’t let it slide by or wait for the perfect moment. And make sure to mark that day somehow to remember it!
