Review: Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

5+ Stars

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

Sydney becomes captivated by her mysterious neighbor, Ridge Lawson. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to the daily guitar playing he does out on his balcony. She can feel the harmony and vibrations in his music. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either: He seems to have finally found his muse. When their inevitable encounter happens, they soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one…

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, a passionate tale of friendship, betrayal, and romance—and the enchanting music that inspires one young woman to put her life back together.

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

Includes a free original soundtrack by musician Griffin Peterson.


My thoughts; WOW, just wow. I can not believe I am once again sitting here struggling to put all of my thoughts into words. At this point I am determined to think Colleen Hoover in incapable of writing a bad book. I sorta wish she would, just so I can finally be convinced that she is an actual human being. Again.... WOW.

There are two things that I have always connected to on an emotional level, books and music. It never fails when I am in a certain mood I relate to one song or another and I can hear my own feelings being put to music. And then, reading.... my passion, what makes me tick, what gets me through all the bad days and keeps me smiling on the good ones. I could never put into words (maybe a light pun intended) how I feel on some days but these two things never fail me. 

That being said, Colleen Hoover (and Griffin Peterson of course *swoony sigh*) has taken those two things and made them ONE. I don't think I have ever experienced this level of emotion while reading, ever. I don't know that I can say this is the best book I have ever read, but I can tell you that this is by far my most epic reading experience to date. To have a book not only grab your heart and sense of imagination with the story but also your sense of hearing and deep emotion with the music that accompanies it. Again.... WOW.

I don't want to say a lot as far as the story line is concerned because I feel like each person should learn every new detail as they read, and listen to the words of each song. From the first moment Sydney sits on her balcony listening to him play, to the first text, to the very last line of this book. I hope you all can feel that without spoilers and without preconceived ideas.  

Happy Reading!! :)
