Sometimes I don’t get a chance to review all the books I read, so I thought doing something like review bites could highlight the books I’ve read but haven’t reviewed. Sort of like brownie bites, review bites are a bite sized review! 🙂

Maybe Someday was my first Colleen Hoover book! (I know, I know — I’m working on it!) I picked it up at the store, on a whim, and read it in one sitting!

Maybe Someday is especially unique in that Colleen collaborated with Griffin Peterson to form a playlist just for this book and this story. The best part is, you can listen to all these songs as you encounter them when you read! Totally cool. Not to mention, Griffin is super talented and I loved all these songs. Listening to it as you read also emotionally connects you to the story and it’s pretty amazing.

Maybe Someday is emotional and Colleen writes about a sensitive topic (cheating) very well. I know people may be turned off by this topic but I was surprised by how it’s done. Reserve judgement until you read it!! The story showcases real people in real situations and shows that not everything is painted black and white. This is more of a character focused book instead of plot focused but I loved that. It’s hard for me to formulate words to describe how much I loved this story. It’s HONEST, and touching and you basically need to read it right now.

My Rating: 5 Stars!

  1. YAY! I’m so glad you liked this one! I loved Ridge so so much! Being such a huge character development fan, this one really worked for me. My heart was so broken for these characters because you’re right: its not black and white. It’s messy and real, and someone is bound to get hurt.

  2. It is about freakin’ time! So happy to hear you loved this book. If you didn’t, I’d be forced to unfriend you. You described it perfectly – it’s honest.
