Maybe Someday + Maybe Not, by Colleen Hoover | Book Review #349 & #350

This review may contain spoilers. 

IMG_5744At twenty-two years old, Sydney has a great life: She’s in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers Hunter’s cheating on her–and she is left trying to decide what to do next.

Sydney becomes captivated by Ridge, her mysterious neighbor. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to the passionate way he plays his guitar every evening out on his balcony. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either. When their inevitable encounter happens, they soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one…

Original music created for Maybe Someday by musician Griffin Peterson can be accessed through the website listed in the ebook and paperback.

From the author of the New York Times bestsellers Slammed, Point of Retreat, Hopeless, This Girl, and Losing Hope, Maybe Someday is destined to be another bestseller and long-lasting fan favorite.

Whenever it comes to a Colleen Hoover novel, I don’t like to read the premise of the novel before I read it. I’ve actually come to finishing my review of books and then there’s a 50/50 chance I’ll read the synopsis. Maybe Someday is another book of Hoover’s in which I did not read the synopsis for. Which I am grateful for, since reading books without having read the synopsis, in my opinion, makes the book shine all that much more.

Needless to say, Maybe Someday started off in the typical fashion of Hoover’s other novels. The story starts with a bit of action; just enough to draw you in, and just enough intrigue of what’s happening to get you to reading the rest of the novel. This seems to be the way that Hoover writes her books, and honestly, I am living for it. I love that she opens her stories like that.

24445517There are two points of view within Maybe Someday. Which I didn’t want to expect, just because I’ve read many books recently that have multiple points of view. However! I genuinely love both points of views. Sydney and Ridge are two people who both love music, but they’re people who have different qualities of life. Something that I like about them is that they fit so seamlessly together.

There was nothing in this book that I didn’t like. Well, maybe the fact that Ridge got slightly territorial, and slightly jealous over a harmless situation.

What I liked about Maybe Someday was that I was once again very easily and very quickly sucked into reading this book. I actually read this novel in one sitting! — Another thing that I really enjoyed about Maybe Someday was the friendship between Warren and Sydney; it’s the best to be honest.

Overall, while I didn’t end up loving Maybe Someday, I didn’t hate it either. I’m in the weird zone of liking it, and really liking it.

I give Maybe Someday, 3.5 stars!

Maybe Not (Maybe, #1.5)

23587984When Warren has the opportunity to live with a female roommate, he instantly agrees. It could be an exciting change.

Or maybe not.

Especially when that roommate is the cold and seemingly calculating Bridgette. Tensions run high and tempers flare as the two can hardly stand to be in the same room together. But Warren has a theory about Bridgette: anyone who can hate with that much passion should also have the capability to love with that much passion. And he wants to be the one to test this theory.

Will Bridgette find it in herself to warm her heart to Warren and finally learn to love?


Maybe not.

IMG_5869I went into Maybe Not, not really knowing anything about this novella, but I had an inkling, since I had read Maybe Someday the night before. I was so glad that Maybe Not was Warren’s story!

Maybe Not is an incredibly quick read — and if I’m remembering correctly, I read Maybe Not in just under an hour.

I’m incredibly glad that we got more of Warren, since in my opinion he’s a great character. I’m also very happy for him and Bridgette. My only wish about Maybe Not was that it would have been longer than the 120 pages it is.

I give Maybe Not, 3 stars!

Happy Reading!
