Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day before 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.

Oh dear, here we go again, Colleen Hoover busting out all the feels with November 9. To say I highly anticipated this book would be an understatement. One thing is for certain, I was not disappointed.

I was already looking forward to November 9 just for the fact that it’s a CoHo book, but my excitement shot through the roof when I read the premise. The idea of forming a strong connection with someone and deciding to meet once a year without contact in between is one I love. A big part of my excitement is because it reminded me of the movie Same Time, Next Year, which I adore. They’re executed differently though, and I have to say, I absolutely love the way Colleen brought it all together. I’m not going to get into a bunch of details, because it’s best to experience it yourself.

Ben and Fallon are adorable! While we get Fallon’s story pretty much right from the beginning, Ben remains a bit of a mystery. Oh, the anticipation of discovering what was going on with him was great, especially when it came to the book he was writing based on their situation. Yes, Ben is a writer, and the way books and their tropes were incorporated into the story was clever and a just so damn cute!

Going on this journey with these two was quite an emotional rollercoaster, and that’s something I can always count on from CoHo. The wealth of humor, the swooning, the angst … I crave it all. Experiencing everything with Ben and Fallon put my dark heart through the wringer on a number of occasions, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Give me all the feels!

There’s so much great dialogue, with an abundance of wit and smile inducing banter that flows so easy between them. There was definitely a whole lot of laughing going on! I like to highlight my favorite parts to revisit later, but I did it so often that I might as well just reread the book in its entirety.

Seriously, there’s so much to love about this book! So grab a copy and enjoy this completely fun and heartfelt romance. Now the painful wait starts for Colleen’s next book …

  1. I only have read one Colleen Hoover book so far and I really enjoyed that one, but so far haven’t been in a hurry to pick up any of her other books. I do like the premise of this one and I am glad to hear it was executed well! It’s interesting that you get Fallon her story immediately, while Ben remains a bit of a mystery, it’s fun to discover mroe about the characters as the book progresses. It sure sounds like it was an emotional rollercoaster. Great review!

  2. I hope I like this one, the last couple of COHO books for me have been a bit disappointing. I will be reading it for the book club this weekend, fingers crossed!

      Yes, you’ll like it. I didn’t find it heartbreaking in the way Ugly Love was, it in a different way. There’s also a lot more humor in this book, and Ben … haha love the guy to pieces. So yeah, definitely read it. And as an UL fan, you’ll be happy when you read this. That’s all I’m saying.

  3. My copy should arrive next week!! I can’t wait. I was actually going to buy the signed copy but it’s almost $20 and I need to save money for Christmas. Hopefully, I get to have the next CoHo book signed 😀 So yes, let’s painfully wait for the next book *sighs* I’m glad you enjoyed it!

  4. The only book I read from Hoover is Finding Cinderella and I love it so much! I really wanted to buy her books but it’s so freaking expensive. Maybe this Christmas, I’ll purchase November 9 as a gift to myself! LOL. Lovely review. 🙂
