Maybe Someday

Claudia: Who is reading “Maybe Someday” by Colleen Hoover? I am!!!! Freaking awesome!!

Sarah: It’s AMAZING! Loved!!! 5 huge stars!

Maryse: I’m reading it!!! :D

Claudia:  I just finished and my heart is literally twice bigger…

Kathy:  I loved it so much! Be sure to go in blind! Don’t read reviews! It’s all the little surprises in this book that make it special!

AGREED Kathy!!!!! EXACTLY THAT! But I think, in terms of THIS review? No worries. I leave out everything. LOL!!!! ;)

Yep! I just read my heart out. And now I’m grinning, feeling a little melancholy ’cause I miss the crew (and I miss “being” Sydney”), and now I wanna snuggle real bad. Who wants to snuggle? Beware of this book… ’cause it gives you the need to *snuggle*.

I’m not kidding! Sweeeeeeeeet!!!! But… daring. Not CRAZY daring… but she definitely took ‘em somewhere that surprised the heck out of me. There was healing, and self-growth in this book (as in all of Colleen’s books), but OMG… she sure as heck let ‘em make some mistakes and hurt people in the process.

“You can’t do this, Ridge. You made this choice for yourself years ago, and I tried to tell you what I thought about it. But you’re in it now, and if I have to be the annoying friend to remind you of that, so be it.”

Yep. Risky business, my friends. Especially when it comes to a slew of innately good people (and not a one of ‘em can you hate). Well.. maybe one REALLY ticked me off. Actually, two, but I’ll ignore that “other” one, and focus on the one I was REALLY liking… until I totally wanted to punch him/her? (<—I won’t even reveal that much) in the nose! And I totally don’t punch in the nose. Actually… I don’t even punch.neutral

I mean… it’s pure Colleen Hoover, ya know? The characters are just so likable. Awesome but real. They have pasts, and concerns, and worries, and flaws, and *issues*. Their stories (especially Ridge’s) are Whoa! But solid. Yet deep down, they feel like us. Lovable. I mean, come on! We so ARE lovable lol and that’s why we connect to her characters so hard.

So what’s it about? I’m keeping this part short and sweet, ’cause the “KA-POWS!!!” happen pretty much right from the start!

She (Sydney) lives across the *waggles hands in the air* way/area thingie/street from him (Ridge). He plays guitar on his balcony. She, sings (and writes lyrics) to his songs on her balcony (not knowing that he notices she’s singing to his songs…). They don’t know each other, or ever talk to each other…. but sorta have this private *thing* going on. But then they do connect. And he tells her a.. er…  life-altering detail. And she and he wind up being very good friends.

The very last thing I want – or even need – is to develop a crush on this guy. However, I’m thinking that may have happened before this week.

I’m stopping there.

So good. In fact, I awwwwwww’d like crazy… especially at one part towards the ***** that just melted me into a puddle of love-mush. I couldn’t believe my eyes at the… waaiiiiit wait. I gotta stop here. Too much too soon. You guys’ll know when you get to it. There are plenty of “it’s” (oh this is SO good) but this one part… awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!! <—- my actual note.

Toski: Maryse the ink pen. OMG. Please tell me that was one of the parts. I loooooved this book so much

Maryse: OH YESSSSSS!!! OMG the ink pen… never have I wanted to be drawn on so badly!!!!!!!!

But don’t go getting all cozy-comfy-secure on me. I’m not saying this ends well. ;)

‘Cause… despite their innate goodness, they still react humanly.

Ridge: Really, Sydney. I haven’t been looking at it like that at all. The last thing I want is for things to be weird between us. I like you. I have fun with you. But if for one second I led you to believe that something was going to happen between us, I am so, so sorry.

OH NO HE DIDN’T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe even what some would consider selfishly at times ’cause they’re caught up in the now, in the *spoiler* (okay I totally spelled that one out at first, but you know what? I’m gonna blank it out). Maybe you don’t know ANYTHING about this book yet, and I’ll let you discover it for yourself.

But just know that THAT part (that I blanked out)? Therein lies a HUGE part of the drama. A BIG part (and the part that had me salivating for relief). Once it “got me” I didn’t put it down until I got what I needed. *whooooo* what a ride.

But don’t go in already thinking you know what you’re in for. There are oh… two… maybe even three twists? Well, I almost gave away a twist… it’s the *spoiler*, but for most of us, that’s a PLUS so I had to let you know you were in for some “feels”. *sigh* I wish I could tell you, and maybe from other reviews, you already know… but I know plenty will read this review with NO clue to the “surprises” and THAT (to me) is how you should go into a book.

Yep. Typical Colleen Hoover “gotchas” (which, may I remind you are so fun, as long as you don’t already “know” going into it). She’s all…. SURPRISE!!!!! and you’re all… Whoa! I didn’t see that coming (but YAY!!!!). Or maybe you’re all ROAAAAAR!!!

But that’s the best part, am I right? Nothing better than having an idea of where it’s going, and still being caught off guard, not once, but maybe even TWICE. And if you didn’t read ANY reviews, maybe even THREE times.

So… let’s add it all up, shall we?

All of that deliciously *spoiler* heartache-y tension + those twists + the incredible depth of emotion and angst that loads us in “feels” right to the very end + that signature Colleen Hoover “funny” (don’t even get me started on the “Warren pine-sol” reveal LOL!!!!!!!!) = You’ve got yourself an awesome read!!!

Delicious agony, with potential for sweeeeeet relief. But hey! Maybe not? I dunno (well ya, I do ;) but my lips are now sealed). Ya gotta read it to find out. This could go ANY way, my friends. And you’ll understand why, when you read it. You’ll be clutching your chest. There may be pain (their may even be disapproval). <—I love when that happens!! *grins wickedly*

4.5 stars!!! Oh… that one part? In fact… so MANY parts? 5-stars… *sigh* lemme think on it a bit. But, either way —> no doubt, I HIGHLY recommend and LOVED it!

Curious about how many others loved this book? Just look:

Maryse: Just finished “Maybe Someday”. So good and sweeeeeet and heartache-y, but nothing tooooo crazy. Just the way I love ‘em. Well… I do love the crazy ones, too (hehe), but this one was pure Colleen Hoover, and now I just wanna snuggle.

Chrissy: Just finished it too!!! Major book hangover after reading Tristan and Danika’s books and now this one. Not even sure what to read next.

Trina: So I just got done marathon reading Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover and I’m completely floored. Book hang over can’t even describe where my head is at. I am speechless and if you knew me, that in and of itself is a miracle….. Just…. Wow.

Nikee: How many stars?

Maryse’s Book Blog: 4.5 easy!! Once it “got me” I read it straight through… enthusiastically. And that didn’t take long, ’cause the intro is quite exciting in a UGH!!! way. Love that.

Chrissy: I was going to read it in one seating but having had 3 nights of 3am readings I needed to get some sleep.

Charlie: I was a zombie today at work from staying up all night but I just had to keep going…I was hooked! So so worth it

Maryse’: Yep… I started it and passed out early-ish into the book (but I was exhausted). This morning picked it back up and never let go.

Maryse’s Book Blog: Okay so who wants to snuggle??

Chrissy: LOL my arms don’t reach that far

Bobbi: So so so so good!! Broke my heart and then put it back together again. I HATE HATE HATE *spoiler*, but that was not the case with this one.

Maryse: And I LOVE *spoiler*, and this one was exciting (I feel bad for saying that)!

Donna:  I want to read this one. I haven’t read her books yet but have one or two on the nook.

Maryse’s Book Blog (Paranormal & Urban Fantasy) Donna!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG PLEASE. Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease read any of her books!!!! PLEASE. You will love us forever, I promise. I recommend Slammed ’cause it was my first and I had EVERY emotion I could have. DO NOT READ ANY reviews of it, go into it blind so you can experience the fun reveal and all of the reactions that will go with it. OMG PLEASE!

Tammy: Great book but my favorite is Hopeless.

Shannon: Slammed is still my all time fave!

Maryse: Slammed is my fav of all time too. But I know many consider Hopeless the BEST (and it’s FREAKIN’ fantastic) but me ‘n Slammed? We’re tight. So there you go, Donna. Can’t go wrong with either one of ‘em.

Shannon: I finished it yesterday! Loved it so much. I love Ridge almost as much as I love Will Cooper. I also quite enjoyed the soundtrack!

Darla: And the change up in the *spoiler*? FINALLY! Loved every agonizing minute of it.

Clare: Loved it too, didn’t want it to end!

Rebecca: I literally just finished Maybe Someday. Oh my heart!!! There was no ugly cry for a change, but my poor heart hurt for them!! It ached!! Absolutely beautiful, heartfelt!! This one is actually my favourite.

P.S. Thank you to the publisher for sending me a review copy!

Kristy P March 20, 2014 at 7:44 PM

I’ve already read it, too. So awesome! Having also read the Hopeless series, I can say that Colleen writes very tasteful yet realistic stories that draw you in. In a short period of time, she has become one of my favorite authors.

Kim Thomas March 20, 2014 at 7:49 PM

I loved this book and music!! Can’t stop listening to the music!! What I love the most is that it delt with realistic feelings. Life isn’t always easy. You have to make difficult choices sometimes. I so hope we will get a Warren story!! I will definitely reread this one!!

Nicole March 20, 2014 at 7:49 PM

I read this book in one day…could not put it down! Just like all of Colleen Hoover’s books. I’m so glad I went into reading this book blind. It had a few surprises in there that made it more special. This book had me crying at times..but in the end I was all smiles! Loved the characters and their struggles and the emotional rollercoaster Colleen Hoover always takes you on! Loved it so much!

Christina B March 20, 2014 at 7:49 PM

Love, LoVE, LOVE Colleen Hoover! #MaybeSomeday #CoHorts!

Kerry melton March 20, 2014 at 7:50 PM

Love Colleen Hoover and was glad to have met her this fall. She is amazing author that’s brings you into the characters in her books. Maybe Someday blew we away what a book, read it in one day couldn’t put it down.

Pam March 20, 2014 at 7:50 PM

Great review! Looking forward to reading this!

Ahh can’t wait to read this <3

Heather March 20, 2014 at 8:31 PM

Just finished this today and absolutely loved it (as I do all things Colleen Hoover). The writing is real and natural and I just loved the journey…the friendships, the heartaches, the humor (Pine Sol!). I felt like it could’ve gone anyway between the three and so badly wanted to peek at the last chapter bc it was killing me! But NO – I did not and am so, so glad. I went into this blind and definitely glad I did. You should too!!! Like right now!! Go!!!!!!!

Yunnuen Glez March 20, 2014 at 8:31 PM

WOW! This book seems really amazing! Love your review, by the way!

Wonderful review Maryse :)

Arianna C March 20, 2014 at 8:37 PM

I am so happy I was able to read an early version of this because yes, I had absolutely no spoilers. Colleen Hoover does it AGAIN!!!!! This book was beyond amazing. I was so torn the entire time and was just wondering what she could possibly to bring them together.. I read this book in 24 hours while juggling work and school and it was so worth it! Loved loved loved it. Might be my favorite one yet but I am not forced to patiently wait while she writes and releases her next one. 5 STARS!!!

Patty March 20, 2014 at 9:25 PM

Ok just finished….I have read all her books and waited patiently for it…I loved the whole story..the writing far exceeded expectation.. who he came up with the band…like I said loved the story. But I have t say I needed more closure at the end. Besides the fact I always want an epilogue and it didn’t have one, I felt like I needed to see more into their future. Still loved it though.

JennSmith March 20, 2014 at 9:25 PM

Great review! Starting this one tomorrow night!!

Patty March 20, 2014 at 9:26 PM

Lol. Awesome review, I love it! It is so hard to write a review without giving away anything.
Maybe Someday is amazing, I have been playing the soundtrack over and over again, my sister keeps asking what im smiling about and I just keep telling her to read the book. It is one of my favourite ever reads. ♥

Samantha Leade March 20, 2014 at 10:55 PM

I just finished reading it (all in one day mind you) and it is everything you said it is, just absolutely fabulous! I love that I could hear the songs as well on my device. So very creative and made me live it even more! Plus my friend from way back in third grade was mentioned in the acknowledgements and that’s pretty cool! ;)

Paige Thompson March 20, 2014 at 11:03 PM

I love this book so much! Love the songs! Phenomenal!

Colleen never disappoints!! Loved Maybe Someday!

Claudia Adrianne Triplet March 21, 2014 at 12:08 AM

There was nothing I didn’t love about Maybe Someday. Even the heartache and pain because in the end seeing the love between Sydney and Ridge was totally worth it.

Jenny Vasquez March 21, 2014 at 12:12 AM

Maybe Someday is such a fantastic book for so many reasons. It’s so thoughtful and unique and different, yet is so relatable. I’m looking forward to rereading it. Great review avoiding spoilers, lol. Thanks, Colleen!

Rachel Estrada March 21, 2014 at 12:17 AM

Great review! Amazing book!! <3

Amy March 21, 2014 at 12:18 AM

Colleen Hoover just does not disappoint, right? Maybe Someday managed to extend the love haze left from Tristan & Danika. Definitely a snuggle-inducing story. Oh Ridge, you can strum my guitar anytime… :P

Hazel B. March 21, 2014 at 12:19 AM

Maryse, I love the fact that you never spoil books with your reviews. I am so excited to read this one. Colleen is batting 1000 with me (four out of four so far). I absolutely love her writing.

Seth Sinclair March 21, 2014 at 12:37 AM

Shai Villanueva March 21, 2014 at 2:13 AM

I totally agree! Love your review. And of course the book! It really scrapped Slammed as my Top CoHo book. Or maybe not. I don’t wanna cheat on Will. ;(

Cristina Buzoianu March 21, 2014 at 2:30 AM

Zaira Fernando March 21, 2014 at 3:49 AM

Roselle Torres March 21, 2014 at 4:22 AM

WOW!!! I must say this is a 6-star rating for me.. (if it is possible to have a 6-star) hehe! YES!!! I can’t believe I was able to finish the book in less than 24 hrs. I was actually on travel and brought my ipad to finish this book. Colleen Hoover has a knack in making her readers cry. Just wow!!! she’s so good with every words and lines of the story. I almost highlighted all the lines per page. LOL! Hands down to Colleen. :)

karen zi March 21, 2014 at 4:44 AM

I’m sooo in LOVE with this book! the emotions of Ridge and Sydney! I can’t help but to get mixed emotions about it! they love each other but at the same time other people will be hurt, but With Maybe Someday, I just love it!

Anubha March 21, 2014 at 6:12 AM

Didn’t read the review as suggested in the beginning conversation. I just brought myself a e-copy and am really excited. I loved all the songs on the album couldn’t wait to start the book :D

Lisa March 21, 2014 at 7:22 AM

I am reading Maybe Someday right now. Absolutely loving it! I’m currently at work, but my hands are itching to continue reading Ridge and Sydneys story. Colleen Hoover is an amazing writer: each book is a masterpiece!

Lisa March 21, 2014 at 7:27 AM

What a great review, Maryse! I absolutely loved this book. It was unique and breathtaking. Colleen really killed it with this book! <3

Carrie March 21, 2014 at 7:31 AM

Great review Maryse. As if I didn’t already loved the books Colleen has written, this was SO worth waiting for. I never imagined the characters to be what they were. AMAZING !!

Veronica Rundell March 21, 2014 at 7:32 AM

I guess I need to read the book in order for that “review” to make any sense…at all! That’s okay. Was gonna dive in anyhow.

Azalea March 21, 2014 at 7:46 AM

Bumbaru Daniel March 21, 2014 at 10:19 AM

Thank you for the great review! <3

Bianca March 21, 2014 at 10:24 AM

Great review as always! And I’m glad you didn’t spoil it, because I think the surprises helped make the story, helped you connected with Syd. I planned on only reading a bit because I’ve been having all night reading sessions too many nights in a row, however, once I was 50% thru I HAD to finish it. Loved it. Funny, serious and seriously perfect.

Jean March 21, 2014 at 11:00 AM

Wow, I have never seen so many comments to one of your reviews! I didn’t read your review, but definitely moved this one up on my list!

Thank you for the spoiler free review! I cannot wait to read this book!

Rachel March 21, 2014 at 3:28 PM

Absolutely amazing! Colleen is by far in my top 3 fav authors. I always feel like I am in the book while reading her books and I feel every emotion the mc’s feel.

Millie March 21, 2014 at 4:00 PM

Read it and cry like a baby otter !
Will will forever be my first Colleen Hoover’s sweet hero, but now I want to go on a island with him, Holder and Ridge and live happily ever after.

desiree March 21, 2014 at 4:21 PM

Kristy March 21, 2014 at 4:22 PM

LOVED this book!!!! I love all of Colleen Hoover’s books!

Rachel Miles March 21, 2014 at 4:58 PM

I LOVE this book so much! <3

Amanda Tse March 21, 2014 at 5:22 PM

I cannot wait to read Maybe Someday!!! I love anything by Colleen Hoover and am sure Maybe Someday will not dissapoint

cynthia March 21, 2014 at 5:24 PM

I just finished it last night. I could not put it down. I was so wrapped up in the book that I forgot (or was too lazy) to listen to the songs as the appeared in the book. I listened to them after I finished and I realized that hearing them when I was supposed to would have made this book even better. I might have to re read it and listen when I’m supposed to.

Sharon March 21, 2014 at 8:37 PM

Can’t wait to read this one!

Erika G. March 21, 2014 at 10:51 PM

In the midst of reaing it now. Simply beautiful!

I can’t wait to read it!! So excited!!!! :) ))))

Kimberly Plummer March 21, 2014 at 11:52 PM

Awesome review!

Valentina March 22, 2014 at 8:34 AM

Awesome book… I didn’t sleep at all last night, because I couldn’t put it down… sleep deprived after reading for seven hours straight, is totally worth it… now I’m listening to Griffin Peterson and his superb songs for this book… Colleen never makes me regret when I chose one of her works.

Dee March 22, 2014 at 9:25 AM

OMG..I read this straight through. This is the best story, I have to say, I have ever read. A visit to the website for the music and epilogue is a must! I know this will be a book I will read over & over. I wanted to get mad at times but I just couldn’t do it. I fell in love with the characters (Ridge & Sydney) and it would be great to read more about Warren (his story) & Maggie (her story).

Laura March 22, 2014 at 9:55 PM

I need to read this book right now. Oh boy, looks like an amazing story, I’ll read it as soon as possible.

Tess March 23, 2014 at 7:26 AM

Great review, Maryse! :D I absolutely loved Maybe Someday and Sidney & Ridge’s love story stole my heart right from the beginning! The way they communicated their feelings through song is really moving! The lyrics are so heartfelt, beautiful and poetic! Maybe Someday is hands-down my all-time favorite CoHo book!!! ♥

Brittany Burton March 23, 2014 at 9:40 PM

The best reviews have great outsider commentary, and my dear, yours is fantastic. I do in fact want to read Colleen’s other books, and your banter with your friend helps me to decide which to start with (Slammed, the first of them, and I learned nothing but that you loved it :) ). Tomorrow’s my birthday so, I’m getting it then. If I don’t win a copy of Maybe Someday eventually, I’ll work my way up. :D

Julie N. March 24, 2014 at 9:46 PM

I just finished it and I loved it!! CoHo has penned another great one! The music was such an added bonus. Just loved it! And great review Maryse!

kim sullivan March 25, 2014 at 11:04 AM

I can’t wait to read this book!! She is an awesome writer!

Heather March 26, 2014 at 12:42 PM

I’m looking forward to reading this. Everything Colleen writes is Amazing!!! Thank for such an awesome review.

Jennifer M April 9, 2017 at 9:01 AM

Morning ladies. I know I’m late reviewing this one. I’m slowly going through your book lists catching up on favorites. I finished Maybe Someday last night and I have to say, I loved it. It was so powerful and full of emotions. There were parts where my jaw literally hit the floor. I swooned so much and I couldn’t tell you how many times I laughed, tears rolling down my face hysterical, Mt husband kept looking over me and asking if I was ok. Lol. I don’t want to reveal any spoilers, so ladies if you’re looking for a heartbreak, hilarious and with an amazing ending, please read this one
