Review: Maybe Someday


Maybe Someday
By Colleen Hoover

Source: Personal purchase, e-book,
Genres: New Adult, Romance, Contemporary, 

Goodreads Synopsis:

At twenty-two years old, Sydney is enjoying 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 that Hunter is cheating on her—and she’s forced to decide what her next move should be.

Soon, Sydney finds herself captivated by her mysterious and attractive neighbor, Ridge. 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. They soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one.

A passionate tale of friendship, betrayal, and romance, Maybe Someday will immerse readers in Sydney’s tumultuous world from the very first page.

My review:

I expected to enjoy this book, but I never expected to enjoy it as much as I did. This was my first Colleen Hoover book, so I was expecting really great things because I know how much everyone loves her. After reading this, it’s fair to say that I’ll definitely be reading more by her in the future! This exceeded my expectations greatly, and I really enjoyed the book.

The plot was done so well. Although I would class it as a romance book, we weren’t too overwhelmed by the romance, and there was definitely no insta-love. I thought the way the book was written in Sydney and Ridge’s POV was done really well, and I feel that it was definitely needed. Sometimes this way of writing gets tiresome and confusing, but I instantly knew who I was reading about, and enjoyed both chapters equally.

My favourite character was Maggie. Although she was a side-character, I enjoyed every scene with her in immensely. She was really complex and well developed, so every time I read about her she seemed so real. I liked her much more than Sydney (even though I still liked Sydney), and could definitely read more about her!

The ending was so perfect. It was not rushed at all, instead heartbreakingly beautiful. It was just how I’d hoped everything would turn out, and had my heart ache. At times I felt it might have even bit a bit slow and dragged out, but I think that is just me, and I know it’s impossible to be displeased with the way things ended. I really enjoyed the book, and it was a great way to end. I know that I’ll be reading more of the author in the future!

    1. Yes everyone who reads one loves it! I'd definitely recommend Maybe Someday. Thanks for the comment!

  2. Yay I'm glad there wasn't insta-love and that the romance didn't overpower the entire book. I keep hearing so many great things about Hoover, so I guess it's good to lower your expectations a bit since she's so hyped up. Lovely review!

    1. Yeah, there was lots about their friendship and other things that happened, so it didn't become too heavy. I tried to lower my expectations for this one, but I know now that I will have high expectations for the next book I read from Hoover! Thanks for commenting :)

  3. Great review! I recently just posted a review of Maybe Someday here! I completely adored the novel! If you liked Maggie so much, you should check out this link for a bonus epilogue! It was exactly what I needed to get past the book hangover I got from this!
