[Blog Tour] November 9
"November 9 is yet another breathtaking novel by Colleen Hoover that's full of blushing, gushing, and heartache. I loved every page and breathed in every beautiful word."
—Anna Todd, author of the After series

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?

What can I possibly say about November 9. Well let’s see, it’s a Colleen Hoover novel, so I obviously devoured it. I can’t explain it… but the way that Colleen writes just  begs you to keep reading.  It’s so hard to put a book down written by her.  I’ve been in quite the book slump lately too, and once I finally picked this up to read it, I couldn’t stop.  Every moment that I wasn’t reading, I was thinking about the characters and what was going to happen to them.  I mean seriously, Colleen. How do you do it to me!?  EVERY. TIME.  I can’t help but immerse myself in the stories that Colleen tells. 

November 9, I have to say was a little bit different from her normal works. I mean I could be wrong, but I feel  like this one was different. The premise was absolutely stunning – as always. There was so much angst and passion it was ridiculous. So obviously I fell in love with this novel. Who doesn’t fall madly deeply in love with a Colleen Hoover novel though? I mean lets be real. First of all, the names that she chooses for her characters… I can’t even.  Especially Benton and Fallon; I couldn’t love those names more. 

I can’t even begin to put into words my feelings towards this book. I loved and hated it at the same time. I loved the passion between the two characters, and the devotion to keeping a tradition going for any amount of years with a technical stranger. I hated what happened to both of them.  I hated the hurt and turmoil that  each of them went through. I hated the secrets.  The part that I hated most of all, is that I didn’t hate it. Not even a little. Not even at all. Yes… I am slightly obsessed with the movie 10 things I hate about you, thus the reference. 

Not once, through this entire novel did I hate the male character. I loved Benton.  Fiercely.  Honestly I think I loved him more and more throughout the novel, even after you learn his secrets.  I got mad at Fallon quite a few times for her reactions, but I completely understood where her emotions were coming from.  I just couldn’t help it though, I fell for Ben. Hard. 

The tears this novel brought to my eyes were relentless. I’m  probably a little over emotional  at times, but the agony…  I can’t.  If you’re not a Colleen Hoover fan, read this book. It’s definitely worth your time. If you are a CoHo fan, I don’t need to say anything because you’ve already read it.  I guarantee this will give you the feels, no matter who you are.  But alas, I can’t reveal anything  about this because I would be ruining the story for you. I will say there are some pretty huge revelations though. Some, if you’re like me… you’ll see them coming. Hope to hell that they’re not real, but you know deep down that it’s true. It happened. It’s happening.  Those are the moments I live for as a reader, and once again CoHo has not failed me.
