You know how sometimes you just want to curl up under a blanket , make some popcorn and watch a romantic feel good film? Well if you want to read something that gives you the same feeling look no further than November 9.
Colleen Hoover generally writes some pretty heavy contemporary fiction but November 9 is dramatic,cheesy and predictable. It reminded me of One Day in parts and I can't recommend it enough.
The climatic twist was quite predictable and extremely dramatic which was the only thing that didn't really appeal to me but the way the relationship is built up between Fallon and Ben made my heart skip a beat. It was such a cute and brilliant way for two people to connect. It's highly unrealistic but it just works in the space of the novel.
Overall, November 9 satisfied my need for romance novels even though it was a young adult novel.It's not a feel good novel but it's like popcorn for the soul that can give fodder to your loveless (or add spark to your lovefilled) life.
