When I choose my books, I tend to gravitate towards stories with mysteries, serial killers, etc. Typically, if the book scares me, then I will like it. And the funny thing is, my husband used to travel a lot for work. I would read these books while he was gone and yes, I would scare myself! Despite liking more challenging subjects, I also like a good, old fashion romance novel. I refer to them as my brain cleanser after reading something scary! Now, as you know, I am a Colleen Hoover fan. So, when it was recommended I check out another book by this author, I immediately placed a hold on it in my Libby app. November 9 by Colleen Hoover did not disappoint.

About the Romance Novel, November 9
From Amazon –
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 Los Angeles 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?
Not a very long synopsis, but sometimes I prefer that. It has just enough to pull me in to read the book, but doesn’t give much away.
My Thoughts on the Book by Colleen Hoover
When this book was first recommended to me, I was kind of not feeling it. I read the short synopsis and it made me think of that Anne Hathaway movie, One Day. That movie wasn’t my favorite. It wasn’t a bad movie, but not one I cared to watch again. However, November 9 was a Colleen Hoover novel. We all know how much I enjoy her books. It’s also a romance novel and I was needing a brain cleansing right about then, so I gave it a try. I’m glad I did. I found the characters to be likable and believable. Nothing annoys me more than not believing and buying into the characters. I know some people say the plot is everything in a book, and they aren’t wrong, but if you can’t buy into the characters, does the plot even matter at that point? While reading, I was waiting for that big OMG moment. There had to be one and boy was there. I think I may have gasped out loud on the airplane. Actually, I know I did! All in all, I really enjoyed this book.
