Maybe Not Review...


Colleen Hoover, the New York Times bestselling author of Maybe Someday brilliantly brings to life the story of the wonderfully hilarious and charismatic Warren in a new novella, Maybe Not.

When Warren has the opportunity to live with a female roommate, he instantly agrees. It could be an exciting change.

Or maybe not.

Especially when that roommate is the cold and seemingly calculating Bridgette. Tensions run high and tempers flare as the two can hardly stand to be in the same room together. But Warren has a theory about Bridgette: anyone who can hate with that much passion should also have the capability to love with that much passion. And he wants to be the one to test this theory.

Will Bridgette find it in herself to warm her heart to Warren and finally learn to love?

Maybe.

Maybe not.

REVIEW

This is the amazing prequel to Maybe Someday.  I don't know that I have ever laughed so hard in my life.

So we all met Warren and Bridgette and their screwed up relationship throughout Maybe Someday.  This book is about how their relationship started and delves into the reasons why Bridgette is the way she is and why Warren has the strange obsession with porn that he does.  It starts on the exact day that Bridgette moves into the apartment and continues through until shortly after Sydney moves in.  You see Sydney, Brendan and Ridge throughout the story but this is Warren and Bridgette's book through and through.

I had been putting off reading this book because I haven't really heard anything about it from other people.  Usually a few days after a book comes out by Colleen I see at least 15 reviews pop up on Goodreads.  That wasn't the case with this book and I wasn't sure what to think about that.  However, that was just craziness because honestly who doesn't love absolutely every book Colleen has read?  

Anyways, I was happy to pick this book up after finishing two different YA fantasy books in order for a change of sorts.  I was of course not disappointed and now I want to reread Maybe Someday but I don't have it right now (I lent my entire collection out in December and am in no rush to get them back since I have nowhere to put them right now except in storage).  

I couldn't sleep last night so I picked it up at about one in the morning and didn't put it down until I finished it.  I couldn't help but laugh non-stop through out the book.  I found their relationship funny in Maybe Someday but to hear it from their perspective was full on hilarity.  I have no words to explain exactly how I felt and how much I loved this book.  I look forward to finally reading the Hopeless series next and then I am out of books by Colleen!  When does the next book come out?

5 hilarious stars!
