thoughts

Fallon meets Ben on her last day in LA, before she’ll be going to New York. Ben comes to the rescue, when Fallon is having not the most pleasant conversation with her dad and since that day November 9 has a significant importance in their life. They have an instant connection, so they decided to spend Fallon’s last day/evening together and make an agreement to meet every year on 9th of November to spend one day together for the next five years.

“You’ll never be able to find yourself if you’re lost in someone else.”

The previous books by  Colleen Hoover I’ve either liked or loved, but this one was a bit disappointing to me. I really liked the writing style and also how fast it’s possible to devour all Colleen Hoover’s book. What I didn’t like was the overflowing drama and the love between Fallon and Ben wasn’t very believable to me, because they met only once a year(they spent only 28 hours in 5 years together) and didn’t communicate apart from that one day at all. The book also didn’t give much insight about the time they spent apart, we mostly learnt about the same exact day. I can’t say I didn’t like the book, it was still quite enjoyable, but not exactly what I was expecting of it.

“When you find love, you take it. You grab it with both hands and you do everything in your power not to let it go. You can’t just walk away from it and expect it to linger until you’re ready for it.”
