I swooned, I fell in love, my heart was broken, and then healed again. Holy hell, that twist!!! This book was perfect from cov I went into this story completely blind without knowing anything other than what the blurb said and knowing the fact that it was a standalone.

My personal recommendation is that you do the same thing. Try not to read anything about the plot and just dive right into the story! I genuinely did not see the twist coming and I absolutely loved that it surprised me! This book starts off by just throwing you right into the story. I fell in love with them together. I wish I could have this every day. Anyways, I started this book late at night but ended up staying up til the wee hours of the morning to finish it because I just needed to find out what happened next for Fallon and Ben.

The more I read, the more my heart squeezed. I was deliriously excited for their reunions, while being kinda scared about what would happen each year while they were apart.

My heart was in my throat!!!! Just for me. Because she missed me. For good. My gosh, there was this one specific point where seriously guys, I was raging!!! My stomach dropped. I was so mad that I was practically shedding angry tears. I was furious to the point of not believing I could ever forgive [that person].

I was done. But ohhhhh how the grovel was epic! It was so epic that it actually did make me genuinely feel for and understand that character and believe the apology in a way that made me forgive what I thought would probably be unforgivable and still fully love that character. In the final hour of reading this book, I went from full on freaking out, angst-filled, stomach dropping rage to sitting with the biggest silliest, happiest grin on my face basking in all the warm happy feels.

I really found it to be amazing how these two characters could literally spend only a matter of hours together over the years and still have me wholeheartedly believe their love for each other. But I really did. I felt the feels, believed their love, understood the mistakes, cheered for the victories. I loved it so much!

You grab it with both hands and you do everything in your power not to let it go. This book was unique, unexpected, gripping, addictive, a lot of fun, but angsty at times, and also totally swoon-filled and beautiful because the truth is that no person is perfect and even the best of us make mistakes. What counts is whether we learn from them, and how we repair the damage, and how far we are willing to go to prove our love for each other no matter what happens.

I really felt like regardless of whether I agreed with them , I understood these characters and I absolutely adored their beautiful yet unconventional love story. I laughed, cried, swooned, and fell completely in love. I have loved every single book that Colleen Hoover has written.

Her stories just reach right into my heart and this book was another top-notch winner — a truly fantastic top recommendation! Standalone romance. View all 76 comments. Nov 10, Emily May rated it did not like it Shelves: I like Hoover's writing, I like her concepts for novels that differ from the standard format of NA romance books, I really enjoyed Never Never and I also liked Confess.

This book, however, reminded me of all the reasons her stories and characters have annoyed me in the past. The relationship between writers and the truth is something I find fascinating. I especially like it when authors structure their novel so it's like a book within a book, or a story within a story, and you can't be sure whether you're reading the "truth" or what the writer wants you to believe.

November 9 touches upon that concept But the reality is it just isn't done very well. From that opening quote that had my jaw dropping in horror at what I was reading to the weird apologies made for bad romance novels. The book tries to make excuses for itself through the use of Ben being a romance writer. Fallon doesn't like instalove one of my own biggest pet peeves and yet both her and Ben conclude that they did have a kind of instalove.

But, you know, acknowledging something doesn't necessarily make it okay. In this case, it doesn't at all. Fallon is so annoying and melodramatic. I swear she must cry at least once per chapter. Also, she makes some sweeping, dramatic statements that seem off.

What a drama llama. Just imagine it I wouldn't think that was normal, I'd think "what a jackass". Ben is another controlling douche wrapped up in a gorgeous "I give you new self-esteem" package. I shove the dress back at him. Which, as the book shows, actually isn't true, and also: So, those are the characters, but there were other things I didn't like. Like the fact that Ben quotes poetry when he sees her naked and they're about to have sex eww and he says this cringy line: Just let me unsee it.

Then there's the fact that the blurb refers to " the ultimate plot twist " which can really only be one thing. The characters lives are not developed enough that there are multiple possibilities regarding the twist. It was so obvious what it had to be about. I honestly didn't buy into their reasons for not being together - it seemed like excuses made to prolong the story.

I've experienced what it's like to meet someone new, click with them instantly, and become completely wrapped up in them and your emotions. You generally do whatever you can to be with these rare people; you do not come up with crappy excuses why it won't work.

They would just distract one another from their goals. What a load of bullshit. Also, one last thing. This is a small matter, given all the other criticisms I have, but can we stop using stereotypes for gay men? And can we stop saying that the guy over there can't possibly be gay because he forgot to shave today? It's just stupid. And, let me tell you, my brother is gay and he waits until we're all like "it looks like a bunch of furry caterpillars died on your face" before he shaves.

Just sayin'. Mar 07, Angela rated it it was amazing Shelves: I must seriously love abuse because I keep coming back for more of it when it comes to your books! This could be the last book I read all year and I would be perfectly content with it. November 9 is stunning. All us book nerds have one serious thing in common when it comes to reading We love book quotes! We love to say them, we love to share "You'll never be able to find yourself if you're lost in someone else.

We love to say them, we love to share them, we love to make pictures with them, we just seriously love them. November 9 hands-down has some of my favorite book quotes in it. Not just from things I read this year, from things I've read in general.

If I could, I would just copy and paste the entire book as my review and just leave it at that. It's all just so beautiful. November 9 follows Fallon, a girl who meets a young writer Ben the day before she's set to move cross country.

With a seriously silly introduction it leads these two characters to spend her last night in town with each other. This becomes the inspiration for Ben's first novel and for the two too met up every year on the same day. I seriously can't get over these two. They're both so easy to fall in love with. Fallon with her insecurities and Ben with his boyish charm will win your heart over within a few pages.

Fallon is this character who is struggling to find her footing again in life, and Ben who knows what direction he wants to aim, but needs the arrow guided. I liked their ups and downs. I liked how their struggles became our struggles. We get to grow with these characters and we get to go through so much time with them. Fallon and Ben will make you feel every single emotion. One page these two would have me dying laughing then I would turn it and the next I would be crying so hard I couldn't breathe.

Their relationship will have you second guessing your hate for insta love. That's all I'm going to say character wise Vague I know, but if you've ever read a CoHo book if you haven't where the hell have you been?!? He drags in a raspy breath. From here on out it's going to be a jumbled mess of spoiler free fangirl talk You've been warned.

The plot OMG the plot. It's a sucker punch from all directions. It's an uppercut to the face, an elbow to the stomach, a smack to the ear of pure emotion thrust upon you. Let me break this down for you The first few pages I was all lah-tee-dah minding my own business being all swoony over all the possibilities of where this story could head I mean good God and it's only 50 pages in!!!

I wanted to lay a book worthy kiss on Ben so hard, because that moment is pure perfection. Every girl deserves a Ben! Maybe someone can invent a pocket sized version of him, and whenever were having an ugly day ladies you know what I'm talking about you can pull out your pocket sized Ben and he can pay you compliments and make you feel like the princess you are. If you can't tell by that bizarre thing I just said, then let me just come right out and say it, I was completely hooked.

I was just sitting on the sofa sobbing. Then it's scene after scene of these perfect stolen moments, breathtaking events, and heart stopping romance that you'll be rooting for But don't get too comfortable because you know one of those epic CoHo twist are going to happen When it happened I couldn't breathe and I swear I almost threw up. Feeling all emotions at once hit me so hard it almost induced vomiting But mainly just caused me to do that heavy cry where you can't even function or form words and all your sentences come out in broken fragments.

Pain swept my legs out from under me. View all 39 comments. Feb 20, Christy rated it it was amazing. There is nothing quite like a Colleen Hoover book. She is one of those authors that leaves a stamp on her work. Her plots seem to have this special twist, her story lines are always unique and her characters are witty, wonderful and flawed.

When I read November 9 I expected greatness. This is a CoHo book. And I wasn't disappointed. November 9 is a day on the calendar. One day out of When I read the blurb for this book, I was intrigued. At first I thought- such a cool idea. Then I thought, how is this going to work? This is a book that put me through the ringer. My emotions were all over the place. It made me feel. It made me stay up all night reading. Be surprised and let the emotions consume you. November 9 is the perfect mix of humor, twists and turns, love, angst and it has that Colleen Hoover stamp that is unmistakable.

View all 87 comments. Note to self Too cheesy for me. Too much drama. Too many coincidences. Her books are a hit and miss for me. This one definitely missed the mark. It had everything but the kitchen sink. I am in the minority here. Most loved it and those of you still to read it will probably love it too. Aw, well Suspension of disbelief or willing suspension of disbelief is a term coined in by the poet and aesthetic philosopher Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who suggested that if a writer could infuse a "human interest and a semblance of truth" into a fantastic tale, the reader would suspend judgement concerning the implausibility of the narrative.

Suspension of disbelief often applies to fictional works of the action, comedy, fantasy, and horror genres. Cognitive estrangement in fiction involves using a person's ignorance or lack of knowledge to promote suspension of disbelief. View all 89 comments.

Things change. She laughs and focuses on my eyes for a beat, but then her focus falls to my mouth and God, I want to kiss her. In other words, this book is extremely chees Once upon a time, I was a die-hard fan of Colleen Hoover. In other words, this book is extremely cheesy.

Are they staring at me? Do they see me as a monster? Am I repulsing to them? Just stop. I understand that her confidence is low due to the scars, but does she have to whine about them all the time and continuously mention them? I vote for a no.

But the humor in this book is of very poor quality. And the year after that? Same date, same time, same place. To me, the idea of someone writing his own love story sounded fascinating. Yeah, right.

Maybe it could have worked. Maybe with other characters it might have been less annoying, unrealistic, eye-roll worthy and cheesy. Colleen Hoover knows how to express emotions: And any guy you allow to touch your scars better thank you for that privilege. Books are there to be read, and we either enjoy them or not. View all 60 comments. Huge disappointment: I love everything CoHo writes, but this one didn't work for me. Let me start from the beginning: I really liked the premise of this book and it was one of my most anticipated reads of the year, I was really excited when it came out and wanted to love it!

I've read some really great reviews and my hopes were high! But oh, it didn't meet my expectations. To explain myself, let me give you an actual quote from the book.

And also Both of them. I know. I'm pathetic. But if we're just going to sit here and stare to each other, it'd be nice if she were showing a little cleavage Thank you for this beautiful gift. And those are not all of them, just the ones I remember.

And those are said by Ben, the male protagonist, the one that's supposed to make us fall in love with him. I don't really understand Fallon, there's a scene that really disturbed me the first day they met, he undresses her "not in a perverted way, it was just curiosity".

The thing is I don't really like Ben. He has some other great quotes and he's a funny guy sometimes, but he's by far the worst fictional boyfriend Colleen ever created in my opinion. And Fallon I kind of like her sometimes, but she's too melodramatic. There are also good things in this book, as I said, there are some funny quotes that really made me laugh and there are also some really nice quotes that I loved He pulls back in shock,.

That's all I get? A seven? People don't get this lucky more than once in the same lifetime.

I'll not spoil you, but their relationship is going really well: Miles deserves it. The truth is I love Colleen Hoover and even if this book disappointed me, I'll still read everything she writes.

She's still one of my auto-buy authors. I don't know what happened with this one I think I'm just tired of the same formula she always uses: A guy with a tragic past and drama and angst and more angst.

Or maybe I'm just not into NA anymore. All the "hot scenes" made me roll my eyes. All in all, I didn't despise the book, I'm just not amused by it.

It put a smile on my face. I'm so use to CoHo not following book trends that i Two words - absolutely brilliant! I'm so use to CoHo not following book trends that it was pleasant surprise to see the crossover.

It started with her first book Slammed and has continued on in her other books. While they make me want to smash my kindle against a wall, they also make me appreciate the realness of the situation. CoHo's love stories are guaranteed to have the ability to provoke strong emotions in the reader.

My favorite aspect of the story is how the book flowed so well together even though the story took place over a large time span. It held me captive from the opening scene until the very end.

I love that CoHo commented on my status update.

It made my year. November 10, Pre-order order: View all 40 comments. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. If I love or hate a book, I don't care how hyped or popular the book or author is, you will get my honest opinion no matter what. I will be the first to admit that I am a huge fan of Colleen Hoover's writing.

Her books are always high on my favorites lists and she is an auto-read author for me. Despite the fact that I did not like this book 1. Despite the fact that I did not like this book at all and that it didn't work for me one bit, she is still one of my favorite authors and I will still be rushing to read her next book.

Unfortunately, and it pains me to have to say this, but November 9 just wasn't for me. From the summary, this book always made me a little nervous for several reasons. But, it's Colleen-freaking-Hoover and there was no way I was not reading this book. I was super excited to get an early copy and despite the fact that October was only reserved for Netflix binging, I couldn't help myself and had to read this book. The thing that upsets me the most is that November 9 had so much potential and the first few chapters showed so much promise.

At first, it was just a few things here and there that bothered me, but eventually almost everything started bothering me and combined, it just didn't make this an enjoyable book for me.

Since there were so many things that bothered me, I'm gonna list these in a non-spoiler and spoiler section below. If you are avoiding spoilers, simply skip that part and head to the end to my non-spoilery final thoughts.

Non-spoiler list of things that bothered me: Now, I'm not this monster that expects or wants all MC's to be perfect and beautiful and flawless, but this goes back to one of my main problems that I have with New Adult and the fact that everything has to be so fucking tragic. I thought we were at the point in NA where we were past characters needing a tragic past, but apparently not. Just to name a few. Hoover's male characters always seem to have this really intense feel to them, which I don't mind at all.

But in Ben's case, there always felt something off about him. He literally came out of nowhere to save the day and offer to be Fallon's pretend boyfriend in front of her dad.

What would have resulted in a one time thing turned into so much more when he stayed with her a few hours while she packed for New York and broke down barriers that no one else could in only a few hours, like letting him take off her clothes. He said just the right things to make Fallon feel better about her scars. He asked Fallon to date around while she was in New York for a year so she didn't 'miss anything', and he sounded like an inspirational coach half the time while the other half he said some really cheesy shit.

Things like: It felt as if the second we joined together, a tiny piece of our souls got confused and a piece of his fell into me and a piece of mine fell into him. I just know that there is no way I can tell him goodbye after this. It'll tear me apart, way worse than last year. I can't go another day without him being a part of my everyday life. Not after this. Keep in mind that this is after he 3rd November 9th they have spent together, roughly 12 hours they have spent together in total since they first met and after the first time they have sex This is one of the main reasons why I had such a hard time connecting with not only the story, but with Ben and Fallon as a couple.

As stated in the summary, Fallon and Ben only meet once a year on November 9th, the day they met. This all sounds romantic, but it didn't work for me in a number of ways. Ben and Fallon agree for some reason more on that later that they should have zero contact at all during the years they are apart. They block each other on social media, they never give each other their phone numbers or emails so they don't talk, text or email.

Basically, they just show up to an agreed location on November 9th at a certain time and hope the other is there. They have no idea if either of them have met someone else or any of the normal every day things that happen in life. Meanwhile, they always act like theirs is an epic love story despite the fact that in reality they just really basically strangers who happen to have a 'connection.

Fallon tells Ben early on that she hates insta-love and when she explains to him what insta-love is and he says that it sounds like what they must have, she quickly dismisses it. Years later when it comes up again, we are supposed to buy this half-assed explanation with this: Later on when they have sex, Ben muses about how as an author he has no words to describe that moment in paper so he will just have to Which is exactly what the book does at that moment.

After reading Ugly Love, we all know Hoover is capable of writing really great and classy sex scenes. This approach came off as lazy. It felt like Hoover used the fact that Ben was an author, and Fallon was a reader to shut down any problems. I mentioned earlier that the plot of this book reminded me of One Day by David Nichols which I have read.

There is a scene in here that really bothered me when someone brings up the comparison: I immediately shake my head. They only agreed to meet once.

I's like One Day, then. That movie with Anne Hathaway? Fallon and I have no contact. I think writers just naturally become defensive when their ideas are compared to other ideas, even if it's done innocently. But mine and Fallon's story is one-of-a-kind, and I feel somewhat protective of it. I don't like the fact that an international best seller book is reduced to simply an 'Anne Hathaway' movie. I especially dislike it since Hoover is an author herself.

I'm sure it was innocent, but this bothered me. The reason why Fallon moves to New York is because he mother says that you don't know who you are until you are 23 years old, and you shouldn't date until then because if you don't know yourself how can you fall in love.

And she always listens to her mother because her mother is always right. Something that Fallon feels the need to remind us of several times. So, she moves to New York to try to find herself and put herself out there to try to help out her career. This is all fine, but Fallon is 18 and alone and miserable in New York. And this doesn't explain the fact that she and Ben can't talk on the damn phone or text or email each other, even as friends. Years later, when Ben wants to move to New York to be with Fallon so they could be together, a family tragedy forces Ben to stay home.

Or should I say, convinces Fallon that Ben has to stay home and once again can't have any contact with her. For his own good, of course. All of this just felt really forced to me. Spoiler things that bothered me: Instead, Ben is dating his dead brother's ex-wife and is raising his brother's son with her. She is hurt and angry, even though she's the one that told him to stay to help her. Even though she's the one that left without refusing to give him her number. She says something that really annoys me: It turns out that Ben is the one that set fire to Fallon's dad's house two years ago.

That day he pretended to be her boyfriend, he was following her dad and fully knew who she was. This kind of negated all the 'your scars are what makes you beautiful' and 'you are lucky to be alive' and all that other after-school speeches he gave her. After that, I never really knew if he really felt that way, or if it was out of guilt for being the cause of that. I know this came as a huge shock to most readers, but it only annoyed me because the whole 'I'm responsible for your traumatic accident and now I'm gonna seek you out to ease my guilt' has been done before in Ten Tiny Breaths by KA Tucker and Leaving Paradise by Simone Elkeles.

He found some letters with his name on them and he assumed that they had an affair and he was responsible for his mom killing herself.

I would also like to point out that this assumption is incorrect. This felt like overkill for a number of reasons. Ben's mother had terminal cancer and she didn't want to be a burden on her sons. So she shot herself in the head. In their home.

Knowing that Ben was there at the time and he would be the one to find her since it was only the two of them that lived there. Leave a comment Lil Fontes pinned post 20 Mar at 5: Breakfast at Tiffany's. Play Add Share More.
