BLOG TOUR- Review & Giveaway: NOVEMBER 9 By Colleen Hoover

Hello Readers!! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog tour stop for Colleen Hoover's newest novel November 9! I could not be more elated to bring you my review for this wonderful novel. I could not get enough of this book. I read this novel at the beginning of November and I am still thinking about it. Fallon and Ben's story is one to last through all the ages! Now before we get to my thoughts and the giveaway, here's a little bit about the book!

Title: November 9
Author: Colleen Hoover
Publisher: Atria Books Paperback
Pages: 320 pages
Pub Date: November 10, 2015

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

Can Ben’s relationship with Fallon—and simultaneously his novel—be considered a love story if it ends in heartbreak?


Colleen Hoover is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Slammed, This Girl, Point of Retreat, Hopeless, Losing Hope, Finding Cinderella, Maybe Someday, Ugly Love, Maybe Not, and Confess. She lives in Texas with her husband and their three boys.


Even though it has been almost a month since I read this amazing novel, and the feels are still going strong I am going to do my best to get coherent thoughts written down. As you all know I am a HUGE Colleen Hoover Fan. There has not been a book of her's that I have not loved. She is one of my instant buy authors. The minute I know she has a new book coming out. I've got to have it. With November 9, there was no disappointment.  I truly believe that Colleen Hoover has out done herself with her latest novel. 

From the minute you turn the first page and meet Fallon. This young actress who has suffered a tragic accident, feisty, strong, and witty! However, not away at how strong she really is. You just felt this instant connection with her. She is having an argument with her father, which we all have done with a parent a time or two. You cant help but root for her to prove her father wrong. Without getting to spoilerish, you'll see what I mean. 

Then in walks the WONDERFUL Ben!! Making his grand entrance, and probably one of my favorite book entrances. I LOVED him from that moment. I knew though that he was going to break my heart, because there was no way you couldn't fall in love with Ben. He is charismatic, witty, smart, and sexy as hell!

The way this story was told was fantastic. How Fallon and Ben decide after having an amazing day together, to meet every year for the next five years. That they will not follow each other on social media of any kind, or exchange phone numbers. But that they will meet up on the same day, November 9 at the same restaurant they first met to catch up.  Now of course there is much drama, and things happen. You find yourself yelling at the book, "WHY CANT YOU JUST EXCHANGE PHONE NUMBERS!! "

A quick story, I was reading this book at work (Barnes & Noble) and I only have the kindle app on my phone. So I'm reading and it gets to a specific part in the book. I am literally crouched down beind the registers. Holding my phone inches away from my face, practically in tears. I knew I should stop but I could not help myself, I needed more! It got so bad my manager heard me, came back to the music department and I make-up running down my cheeks. Lets just say I am no longer allowed to read at work. lol. But it was so worth it!

Now back to the book and my thoughts.....

The writing of this novel is amazing, I have half the book highlighted because there are so many great quotes throughout the book. 

You could relate to both Fallon and Ben in such different ways. Since Fallon was in a horrific fire when she was younger, she has major confidence issues that she is learning to live with. Issues that make her vulnerable when she is with Ben. But the most beautiful thing about Fallon and Ben's relationship is that he brings out this confidence in her. Which I think is the most perfect thing in the world. Every woman, and man should have the person in their life that just makes them feel better about themselves and make them realize that no matter what. They matter, their feelings matter, and its ok.

And Ben has secrets of his own, but Fallon helps Ben heal in ways that I don't think she will fully ever understand. Just like he will never fully understand what he's done for her. The development of their characters, watching them grow. It was like watching a flower bloom in the spring, and the color of the leaves changing in the fall. Absolutely breath taking to watch and I still want more!!

Bravo Colleen! Bravo!

EXCERPT #5  - Daisy's POV

Ryke leans forward now, enough to lift my chin with his fingers. “You’re fucking trouble, Calloway.” 

Then he kisses me, a tender kiss that aches to become ravenous. So we kiss again, his hand sliding through my hair, his tongue skillfully teasing mine. My chest rises in a deep, longing breath.
And my pulse thumps in excitement.

I smile into the last kiss, my lips tingling beneath his. “Wow,” I breathe when we break apart. “I think I’d like to get to know your mouth better.” I smile. “Let’s do that again.”


Both giveaways are open internationally! Make sure you enter, the prizes are some good ones!!

Amazon eBook ** Amazon Paperback

INSPIRE (Book 1):

Kalliope lives with one purpose.   To inspire.   As an immortal muse, she doesn’t have any other choice. It’s part of how she was made. Musicians, artists, actors—they use her to advance their art, and she uses them to survive. She moves from one artist to the next, never staying long enough to get attached. But all she wants is a different life— a normal one. She’s spent thousands of years living lie after lie, and now she’s ready for something real.   Sweet, sexy, and steady, Wilder Bell feels more real than anything else in her long existence. And most importantly… he’s not an artist. He doesn’t want her for her ability. But she can’t turn off the way she influences people, not even to save a man she might love. Because in small doses, she can help make something beautiful, but her ability has just as much capacity to destroy as it does to create. The longer she stays, the more obsessed Wilder will become. It’s happened before, and it never turns out well for the mortal.   Her presence may inspire genius.   But it breeds madness, too.

Inflict -cover

About INFLICT (Book 2):

Wilder Bell made a dangerous bargain...   For a chance at love, he gave up his life.   History knew Kalliope as an ancient Greek muse, but to Wilder, she was simply the woman he wanted to fall asleep with every night and wake up next to every morning. He made a deal with Hades, but the only thing the Lord of the Underworld deals in is death. Now Wilder is wasting away in a cold and wretched afterlife, waiting for Kalli to come for him. She will come. He has to believe that. Because the alternative is worse than death.   Kalliope lived her entire existence knowing that she was both a blessing and a curse to anyone she encountered. Wilder was no different. She loved him, and she got him killed. Now to get him back, she’ll have to face a scheming god, a perilous task, and death itself. But before it’s done, the Underworld will take more from her than she ever thought possible.   To be made whole, all must first be lost.
