I am now officially a huge fan of Colleen Hoover. I am practically holding myself down from going on a Colleen Hoover books binge and I hope I succeed. This book was that good.
Fallon in very unconventional circumstances, meets Ben an upcoming writer on the day she is moving to New York City to start a new life and they instantly click. The two who are both 18 years old, decide to meet every year on the same day (November 9) until they turn 23 when hopefully they will be ready for a relationship or maybe not. Each year after that day came with new discoveries and revelations which on some level strengthened their commitment to the plans they had but in some other ways threatened their love for each other.
This is a raw and heart wrenching story about body shame, guilt, fear, forgiveness, love and self discovery. Although I am not a fan of YA novels, this one got me transfixed to my screen until I was done with it. I loved the main characters, Fallon and Ben and found myself rooting for them despite all the obstacles that were thrown in the direction of the prospects they had to be together. I also liked the premise of the book and the message it holds, which urges us to embrace our flaws, past mistakes and hurts as this will only help us to move forward in life and ultimately towards healing.
I liked reading this so much that I honestly can’t think of what I didn’t like about it. It was that good. I highly recommend it.
