Review: Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

Maybe Someday
By: Colleen Hoover

I was so excited for this book to come out! I was counting down the days and then, made the biggest mistake ever. I started reading it at midnight. I went to work at 8 a.m. pretty much useless, then continued to hide and read the rest of the book!! I am actually daring to say this is my new favorite book. Ever. Seriously.

This review will be vague. I think that is best when you go in not knowing much about the story. There are a few twist and the twists were what made the story unique, remarkable and unforgettable. 

At twenty-two years old, aspiring musician Sydney Blake has a great life: She’s in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her good friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers Hunter cheating on her with Tori—and she is left trying to decide what to do next.

Sydney becomes captivated by her mysterious neighbor, Ridge Lawson. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to the daily guitar playing he does out on his balcony. She can feel the harmony and vibrations in his music. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either: He seems to have finally found his muse. When their inevitable encounter happens, they soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one…

I will start with: I loved Sydney. She was adorable, strong and funny. I was already laughing in the first few pages. I was rooting for her and loved her every step of the way. Her and Ridge finally meet in person and he needs her help getting over a writers block. 

This is not your average love story. As we learn more about this unique cast of characters, the story becomes more complex. I had to put my iPad down once and think about what I just read. I actually said out loud. "how is this gonna work?"

This story is beautiful. That is the best way to describe it. It's heartbreaking, warming and thrilling, but not sappy and cheesy. Sometimes thats a hard thing to balance. Their circumstances forced the plot to take a totally original path, and I loved it.

My stomach was in knots, I cried and I laughed. I can't remember the last I was so utterly immersed and in head over heels. The story is intimate and sensual, but not in a sexual and graphic way. 

Favorite lines:

"I failed first."
