Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
Published March 18th 2014 by Atria Books
Goodreads Summary: At twenty-two years old, Sydney is enjoying a great life: She’s in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers that Hunter is cheating on her—and she’s forced to decide what her next move should be.
Soon, Sydney finds herself captivated by her mysterious and attractive neighbor, Ridge. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to the passionate way he plays his guitar every evening out on his balcony. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either. They soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one.
A passionate tale of friendship, betrayal, and romance, Maybe Someday will immerse readers in Sydney’s tumultuous world from the very first page.
Review: I finished this book over a month ago but have waited to review it for several reasons. First of all, this book completely blew me away and I wasn’t sure how to write a review without sounding like a babbling, bumbling band of baboons (thanks to Professor McGonagall for that one). Second of all, I really haven’t been in the mood to write reviews this year so I’ve been putting them off. Third, there are so many twists in this story I find it hard to write a review without spoiling anything! But do not worry! I have a passionate hatred for spoilers so you will not find any spoilers in this review… just vague gushing about the mastery of Colleen Hoover’s story telling abilities.
I loved November 9 and then I loved Ugly Love… but this one just blows those two out of the water. The amount of feels (and intensity of the feels) are enough to knock you on your back clutching a box of kleenex. The characters are so well thought out and described. They each have their own strong personalities. The twists that CoHo weaves into this story are incredible. I totally didn’t see any of them coming and they added such dimension to a book you may go into thinking is just another NA romance novel. The struggle these characters go through feels real and heartbreaking. Oh man, even just thinking about the book now has me wanting to re-read it. Also, to add yet another dimension…. there is a SOUNDTRACK that goes along with the book! Griffin Peterson worked with Colleen Hoover to create the soundtrack featuring the music that Sydney and Ridge write together throughout the novel. Check it out here! I highly recommend this book.
