Once again, Colleen Hoover has delivered an emotionally charged masterpiece that will capture your heart! Maybe Someday is not your typical romance but I promise you, it is one of the most deeply passionate and uniquely beautiful books I have ever read.

Pure perfection! 5++ stars!!

“I never realized how powerful desire could be. It consumes every part of you, enhancing your senses by a million. When you’re in the moment… all you can do is focus on the person in front of you.”

*5 out-of-the-box stars!*

Maybe Someday I'll come across a Colleen Hoover book that doesn't knock my ever-loving socks off and push me to scope out life from a profoundly lucid and genuine perspective ... But I highly doubt it.

So shots all around, for another CoHo favorite!

What I love most about Colleen Hoover books, in conjunction with her beautifully and poetically mapped out stories, is the fact that none of them are the same. In fact, they are so richly unique t

Maybe not right now. Maybe not tomorrow. But maybe someday.

Colleen Hoover is one of those authors that never disappoints. I don’t think she has it in her to write anything other than perfection. I loved every chapter, every page, every word of Maybe Someday.

Sydney and Ridge’s story was so different, so original, and due to the nature of the story, it’s going to be hard to review. I’m going to hide all my spoilers, and I would highly recommend NOT reading any of them unless y

I am conducting what I'm shelving as a "New Adult (NA) Experiment". I'm going to work my way through some of the popular New Adult books and see if I can weed out the crap and hopefully find some surprising gems. Here's hoping!

You know, I promised myself something before starting this book: either I would decide it wasn't for me and DNF it without a review, or I would be pleasantly surprised and continue to the end and write a glowing oh-my-I-can't-believe-it positive review. Neither actually ha

I’m torn guys. I’m so fucking torn right now. I honestly was headed straight for a 5 star right up until 60%ish where a major peeve specifically made for CoHo showed up out of nowhere (again). That, and my respect for Sydney and Ridge went from this:

I mean it’s no surprise that I am a CoHo fan. Since I finished this one, I have read all of her BOOKS and almost all of her novellas. If I average out all the ratings including this one, it’s a 3.14 which means more or likely I’m bound to lik

This love triangle is different from others I have read because there isn’t a villain or an unworthy person in the equation. All three characters’ feelings are equal and relevant and although we are only privied to two povs throughout the story, the third person’s side is felt throughout.

There is no doubt that Colleen Hoover can write any amazing novel. The development and interaction between Sydney and Ridge was pure magic. Their method of communicating with each other felt like a language meant only for Sydney and Ridge and I felt like a fly on the wall playing witness to their romance. One of elements of this novel that I appreciated was the lyrics. I usually cringe when I read lyrics in books because they come off so cheesy and unrealistic but not with Maybe Someday.

3.5 - They can't all be a winner - stars

I'm sad I didn't love it but oh well.....

Ok now don't get me wrong this book was written great and I still love me some CoHo, but this was not by any means my favorite CoHo book.....Maybe its my fault for not reading the blurb bc I didn't care since it was a new CoHo book but I actually considered DNF because I saw where this book was headed and its one of my pet peeves.

When your book is so highlighted that it glows in the dark you know you have a winner!

So much to say and yet not wanting to reveal any plot twist I'll re-frame from divulging into the plot line.

The beauty of MAYBE SOMEDAY is it's a book you feel. With every heartbeat you feel like you're there experiencing the story. When CoHo describes something you find yourself mimicking the characters facial expression and/or movements

Here’s the thing: I’m a huge fan of Colleen Hoover- a tremendously HUGE fan. I’m in love with everything she writes and I’d basically buy anything she puts her name on. Colleen is high on my favorite author list and I’ve adored every single one of her books, especially this latest one, Maybe Someday.

Saying I was excited to read Maybe Someday would be quite the understatement. I basically counted down the days until it was released and no one would ever understand

This is my third book by Ms Hoover. I loved Hopeless. Was not too keen on Slammed. Yeah, saw all the rave reviews for this one and thought to myself will I? Still had a bit on the Amazon gift voucher…. Cos it’s not cheap for an e-book. You UK buyers are getting it for a bargain at your price. I buy on .com so it was a bit more.

Ridge and Sydney connect trough music and soon very strong feelings starts to develop between them.
But life always gets in the way and things aren’t always easy: there will be major obstacles, hearts they don’t want to break… and heartbreaking beautiful songs.

Sydney did go through all of these emotional states because of Ridge.

I’m not saying that it’s a bad thing…but there sure was a lot of drama in this story. I didn’t see much of the exterior world or even the music industry. It almost felt like Ridge being apart of a music group was not even the reality since not much actually proved it, except for him playing guitar, writing songs and sharing some related info with his brother who was in of the group as well..

Ridge is a good guy, really. He’s lo

Well I guess I'm the odd duck here because I didn't like this. The only reason I'm rating it 2 stars and not 1 is because I did like how it ended, mostly. I completely lost respect for Ridge with his treatment of both women. Mostly Sydney, though.

People don’t get to choose who they fall in love with. They only get to choose who they stay in love with.

Well if there’s one good thing I can say about Colleen Hoover at this point in my reading canon, there is something about the way she writes that allows me to finish her book in a day. There’s an ease in the way she tells a story, a manner that keeps my attention even when I don’t like what is going on. I can’t seem to look away, even when half the time I’m alternating between wantin
So... Colleen Hoover. I was lucky when it comes to CoHo - I read her Slammed novels before all the hype and publishing deal, so I avoided the usual issues with books like this.

Maybe Someday was incredible, astonishing, heart wrenching , emotional roller coaster that totally blew me away.

Maybe Someday = Perfection

I cannot find the words. I am speechless. Colleen has created a masterpiece. A unique, heart wrenching, beautifully written piece of art.From the start, I was completely captivated. I just wanted the whole to go away, so I could lose myself completely within the pages.

I don't even know where to begin with this review..

I randomly decided to pick this book up because I was in a contemporary mood, I then proceeded to read it in one sitting until 1 o'clock in the morning..
I never do that.

This is a very painful and emotional story. I was crying through a lot of it and full on sobbing at a few points. My emotions are a wreck, and this book left me with a major book-hangover!
It is definitely a great book, I mean, it has to be if it made me feel so many emotions. How

Oh Colleen Hoover,

Every time I pick up one of her books, she completely blows me away, and this was no exception! This book was so unique and different from all the others floating around the NA genre right now. There isn’t one book I could possibly compare it too! Colleen Hoover has always been a favourite of mine and she did not fail to impress with this one. The characters, the story, the experience, they were all just so unique. This was one of those books tha

I put off reading this one knowing it had themes that I tend to not like in books...

What I should have known was that Colleen Hoover could make it not matter. In the end, I was okay with how they story unfolds. I got lost in the moments, in the feelings, in the words....

That's right! Jordan Catalano ate my hypercolor underwear…..

Underoos, hypercolor, thin mints, and Jordan Catalano.

What do these things have in common? Absolutely nothing….or maybe they do. Maybe it's possible to have absolutely nothing but everything in common, a beautifully random conundrum. Colleen Hoover is that conundrum. Each and every one of her books possess a fresh uniqueness that drags you into the very heart of everything she writes.

Beyond 5*s - AMAZING, absolutely stunning! Brilliantly written, heart-wrenchingly beautiful.

Colleen Hoover has done it again! She has written a story so unique, so genius, and so completely beautiful. She has written a romance full of emotion and she has done it through two characters whose connection is so much more than mushy words and crude sex scenes. Maybe Someday brings passion to its readers on a palpable level.

For Sydney Blake, life approaching 22 seems to be pretty good. She is a colleg

**4 shattered stars **

This was my first Colleen Hoover book. People were raving about it constantly and I was really curious what the hype was about. I was completely unprepared, I had no idea I would feel so many emotions while reading.


The story began dramatic; Sydney's world is shattered after discovering an affair between her boyfriend Hunter and friend Tori, and to make it even more traumatic, she discovered it at the day
