{Cover Reveal} November 9

New cover for Colleen Hoover’s Next book ‘November 9’

Colleen Hoover

With just three days left until the release of CONFESS, what better time than now to announce the release of the next book!

November 9 releases…November 10th? 😉 And it’s up for preorder! (Amazon preorders aren’t charged to your account until the day of release)

I wish I could express how much fun I’m having writing this book. Probably the most fun since I began writing.  I can’t wait for everyone to meet Fallon and Ben in November.

I wanted something a little different for the cover of November 9, and Atria’s art department nailed it on the first try.  Here’s the cover, and read below for the blurb and giveaway!


Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day before her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought…

{Meme} Top Ten Books I Wouldn’t Mind Santa Bringing This Year

There are so many books that I wouldn’t mind Santa putting under the tree. Just where do I start. Most of the books I want either are not out yet or I have on the kindle and would like the paperback version to add to my growing library.

1) Blood & Roses series by Callie Hart
I have read the first book in the series, but would really like to get the series in backpack version.

2) The rest of the books in the Black Jewels series by Anne Bishop
I have read and own the original 3 in the series, but would like to add the rest to have the complete collection.

3) The Firebird by Sophie Masson
This has to be one of my all time favourite books, but I am yet to own it. I use to get it at the local library all the time, then one day it was no longer there and I think I died a little inside.

4) Destroyed by Pepper Winters
The only book I don’t have in paperback form by this author

5) The Thoughtless series by SC Stephens
I have read these but am still yet to add them to my collection. Maybe I should do it before thoughtful comes out

6) Any Colleen Hoover Books I don’t already own
Discovered this author via the blogging community this year and loving everything that I have read so far. Will read more thou

7) Filthy Beautiful Lies Series by Kendall Ryan
I am yet to start this series, but it looks so good. If it’s under the tree I will just have to read it then

8) What If? by Randall Monroe
This book just sounds like a lot of funny and I’ll probably learn something unusual along the way

9) Dark Lover by J.R. Ward
I’m have been meaning to read these for so long now. Please somebody give me that extra little push

10) Any other books that anybody gives me because I’ll love them all

{Review} Ugly Love

Ugly LoveUgly Love by Colleen Hoover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

So read this in one sitting. I just couldn’t put it down. It was so intense and I was sucked in from the very first page to the very last page.

There is on way that you can’t feel something after reading this book. It is so easy to relate to the character and what they feel and go through. I was there for the whole ride and I never wanted it to end.

While the story did jump from the present to the past, it made perfect sense and was still easy to follow. The present follows Tates’ daily life and struggles with Miles, while the past focuses on how Miles came to be how he is.

I thought I was prepared going into this story. But I was so wrong. No matter you think you know, always expected the unexpected from Colleen Hoover. I’m an emotional wreck and love really does get ugly.

{Meme} Top Ten Books I’d Give To Readers Who Have Never Read New Adult

The new adult category is something that I went into half minded since it is different for everyone that reads it.


However the general category description is about characters in the age range of 18-25, leaving home for the first time, going to college, discovering things about themselves living in the real world, taking a chance with a first love. If I have forgotten anything I’m sorry but that is just my overview of the category (nothing official here)

new adult descrip

Below is a list of new adult books that I have read and would pass onto someone else.

1) Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire (review)

2) Walking Disaster by Jamie McGuire (review)

3) Thoughtless by S. C. Stephens (review)

4) Collide by Gail McHugh (review)

5) Gabriel’s Inferno by Sylvain Reynard (review)

6) Hopless by Colleen Hoover (or anything by Colleen Hoover really) (review)

7) A Little Too Far by Lisa Desrochers (review)

{Review} Losing Hope (Hopeless #2)

Losing Hope (Hopeless, #2)Losing Hope by Colleen Hoover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I didn’t think it was possible to fall more in love with Dean Holder, yet I was proven wrong.

I am always a bit wary reading male POV, ecpessically when it is for a book that I have read and loved to pieces. Yet Hoover is such a natural at this and all way doubts were laid to rest.

‘Losing Hope’ is Holders POV on what happens in ‘Hopeless’. It lets us know what he is thinking and also fills in some of the gaps nicely. There are parts were we get to see what he thinks when the main events in ‘Hopeless’ take place and also what happens when I disappears for a little while. I was wondering what was happening then and now my mind has been put to rest.

I loved it so much that I never wanted it to end.

I have only recently discovered Colleen Hoover’s book. After reading ‘Hopeless’ and ‘Losing Hope’, I can say that I have found a new author to love.
