As I sit here writing this review, I am listening to Griffin Peterson sing his heart out. I couldn't do it any other way. A few days ago I contacted Colleen Hoover to see if I could receive an ARC of Maybe Someday for an honest review. Thank God, she was happy to oblige. I don't know if I could've waited any longer. Immediately after receiving Maybe Someday, I kind of panicked. This is one of Colleen's babies. She trusted me with it. I have written reviews for Colleen's books in the past, but never one specifically for her. Ya, know what I'm saying? Besides, I am a new blogger. What did I get myself into? She is most likely going to read my review! As I started reading Maybe Someday, I decided due to my nervousness, I would write my review as I went along in my notes. I wanted to get it just right. It started off ok, but as usual, Colleen knocked all sense out of me and I was left with raw emotion.
As you can see, while reading Maybe Someday, I was no longer in my world, but in Sydney and Ridge's. I could no longer write a review, but place a grain of sand of my emotions somewhere or I would com-bust!
I can not comprehend how Colleen Hoover is not an emotional person. I have read, where she has written, that she is not time and time again via Facebook and on her blog. Her books pull so may emotions out of me and then slam them back in. I know that authors have these characters talking to them; telling their stories. I think it is much more than that with Colleen Hoover. I bet if a doctor scanned her brain, they would literally find a colony of people living there. All waiting in line to have their stories told. Waiting to be set free. Maybe somebody should write a book about Colleen Hoover!
Maybe Someday couldn't have been any more agonizing , beautiful, and INSPIRING! It was pure perfection. Every time I read a book by Colleen, her words and characters steal a little piece of my heart. But with Maybe Someday, I think a part of my soul was taken as well. Wait, maybe that isn't right. I think that Maybe Someday, Sydney and Ridge, has put its heart and soul into me. Yes, that's more like it. Its not just the words, story, and characters, but the music that goes along with it. OMG, the music! It fills my soul as I write this. It makes me want to immediately read Maybe Someday again, so that it can consume me once again. Over and over.
" My entire body is battling itself. My left brain is telling me this is somehow wrong, my right brain is wanting to hear her sing again, my stomach is nowhere to be found, and my heart is punching itself in the face with one arm and hugging itself with the other." - Ridge
One more note before I conclude this review. It was so well written that that I became the characters in a way. Especially since it was written in both Sydney's and Ridge's P.O.V. I felt all of the pain, excitement, and love that they felt. These emotions became so strong that I wanted to literally become one of them. I had to become one of them. Weird, I know. Blame it on Colleen. That need was so bad because I wanted to make their decisions for them. Good or bad. I wouldn't have even minded being Ridge just so that I could do what I so desperately need them to do. I needed to end their suffering in such a bad way. That is a first for me. Never in my life have I ever wanted to be a man before. No matter how amazing the book was.
