I received this galley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Atria books.
From the moment I started Maybe Someday, I knew that I was going to love it. I have been a huge fan of Colleen Hoover since her self publishing days, and this book was no exception. Her writing is so captivating, that you have no choice but to keep reading no matter what else you are supposed to be doing. Her characters are so realistic and relatable, and I fell in love with both
Sydney and Ridge. I finished this book about
a month ago, and I am STILL thinking about it. I can't wait to have some free
time so I can re read it!
The story starts with
finding out her boyfriend and best friend have been sleeping together. With no
where else to go, her neighbor Ridge, who she doesn't know very well except for
their nightly guitar and song writing moments from different porches, offers to
let her sleep at his place. The story then backtracks two weeks to see how the
two of them met. Just the way Hoover
started the beginning of the book was different and original, and I was
While I have loved every single one of
characters, I can easily say the Sydney
and Ridge are my absolute favorites. I don't think it can get any better then
these two. They are both so sweet, kind and have the most believable and real
connection. They were also both extremely funny. There were so many times I
found myself laughing hysterically, it's a good thing I wasn't reading this
book in public or I would have been completely embarrassed.
What also made this book extremely special was the fact that
Ridge wrote music together. Sydney
wrote the lyrics and Ridge wrote the music for it. I loved reading the amazing
lyrics that they came up with together. In real life, the lyrics and music were
written by the amazing and talented Griffin Peterson. I have not been able to
stop listening to all the songs, and I highly recommend listening to the music
as you read the sections in the book. This brought so much to the story.
Maybe Someday is one of my favorite books of 2014 and actually, I think it's probably one of my favorite books of all time. There was just something so amazing and wonderful about this story. From the plot, to the characters, and to the music, this story is not to be missed!
