November 9
by Colleen Hoover
Standalone; Approx 320 pages


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?


November 9 is a completely unexpected story of tough relationships, survival and growth. It is no surprise that such a captivating story comes from Colleen Hoover, she certainly takes us to new levels over and over again.

November 9 burst off the pages as we are submerged in the priceless relationship between Fallon O’Neil and her totally self absorbed father. It is obvious, on so many levels, that she is a survivor.  BUT like most people Fallon carries scars, hers happen to be on the outside and they prove she has survived more than most.

‘A body is simply a package for the true gifts inside. And you are full of gifts. Selflessness, kindness, compassion.’ 
In walks Benton James Kessler, he appears almost as if out of thin air. He is funny and quick-witted all while warm and embracing. I loved him and his totally non-alpha persona. He was perfect for Fallon and knew all the right ways to put her at ease.
“Fallon, we’ve been dating for two hours now. I can read you like a book, and right now I do believe that book is full of erotica.”
As their limited time comes to an end, Ben proposes a totally crazy plan to meet up every year on the same date to check in and see if they still have the same connection. I LOVED IT!!!
“You can’t leave yet. I’m not finished falling in love with you.”
True to life, this couple is dealt some pretty unfair blows. I loved how they both appear to grow and mature but they stayed true to their commitment, always finding their way back to each other year after year.
'I don’t think a single part of me could possibly smile when she’s touching me like this, because there’s absolutely nothing good about the fact that I’m not going to feel this way again after tonight.'
This story is the perfect mix of humor, twists and turns, love, angst and it has that Colleen Hoover’s unmistakable stamp. I love how her words flow so smoothly, she has the perfect blend of sass and realness. I truly want to meet so many of her characters!!! If you are looking for an emotional, witty and priceless story that will have on the edge of your seat the entire time NOVEMBER 9 is your next read!

  2. It was such a perfect love story. Colleen gives me such high expectations for my future boyfriends/husband. Poor boys won't even know, and they will only have Hoover to blame. Great review! :D
