November 9



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 Fallow 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 relationshio with Fallon-and simultaneously his novel-be considered a love story if it ends in heartbreak? - excerpt from book.

November 9 by Colleen Hoover has become my favourite even though I've only read 2 of her titles. The premise of this book was quite interesting with the characters just meeting once a year, you would think it's sorta like One Day but in the book itself they pointed out the difference. What really capture you is not only the genuine and uniqueness of the characters but the plot line was just amazing.

The main heroine starts off with her past and slowly in the book how it has shaped her. Through out her meetings with the male protagonist and experiences, she begins to grow and change. Her interactions with the people in her life are briefly mentioned but just enough to let you picture the whole idea. Whenever she meets up with Ben, you will be on your shoes and loving every conversation and moment. As for Ben, he is a mystery from the start till the climax of the book. Even though you don't know him but you'll love him all the same, his actions and thoughts of Fallon is one guy that captures you.

The book is written based on Nov 9 of a few years and in the perspective of Fallon and Ben. It is so enjoyable to read about a male and female perspective when it comes to romance for me as I'm often curious what goes through the other person, although in real life it's impossible to know of course. The alternating point of views gives you so much insight of the plot and also making things so much exciting with conflicting views at times. I would say that the timeline of the book is unique of its own and certainly fits the whole idea without boring you at all. You could say that there is much suspense year after year which is one of the reasons of my attention being hooked. When you reach the climax, I'm pretty sure you might let out a tear or two, at least you would feel something for the characters.

I highly recommend this book to contemporary/romance lovers, this is one of its kind. Colleen has certain amazed just through two books and I'm so excited to pick up other titles of hers to add to my book collection. The stories all came with a message and it was such a touching one. She certainly set some high standards for romance books for me now.
