Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
Published March 18th 2014
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.
I read Ugly Love and November 9 from Colleen last year and I LOVED both books so much. I had really high expectations for Maybe Someday, especially because so many people told me that it was their favorite CoHo book. On many levels, Maybe Someday matched my expectations. However, I found myself reading this book differently than how I read Ugly Love and November 9.
The writing style for Maybe Someday is perfect. I loved the style and pace. I loved the alternating perspectives between Sydney and Ridge. I loved the plot. I, however, found myself questioning if I liked the characters. The characters are super believable. They’re well written, have a lot of depth, and are relatable. But I found myself getting so frustrated and annoyed with Sydney and even Ridge at times. And it was because I didn’t like their choices and I didn’t agree with them. But it’s perfect because they’re so believable as characters. They made perfectly normal mistakes. And I was getting frustrated because I was so emotionally invested in Sydney and Ridge that their choices got to me on a very deep level.
Overall, I loved this book. It was a lot different for me from Ugly Love and November 9 but I think Maybe Someday is a book that each time I read it, I’ll get something new from it. I appreciate the characters, especially Ridge, so much and I highly recommend this book.
