REVIEW: Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

Maybe Someday

Blurb: At twenty-two years old, aspiring musician Sydney Blake has a great life: She’s in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her good friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers Hunter cheating on her with Tori—and she is left trying to decide what to do next.

Sydney becomes captivated by her mysterious neighbor, Ridge Lawson. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to the daily guitar playing he does out on his balcony. She can feel the harmony and vibrations in his music. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either: He seems to have finally found his muse. When their inevitable encounter happens, they soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one…

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover, a passionate tale of friendship, betrayal, and romance—and the enchanting music that inspires one young woman to put her life back together.

From the author of the New York Times bestsellers Slammed, Point of Retreat, Hopeless, This Girl, and Losing Hope, Maybe Someday is destined to become another bestseller and long-lasting fan favorite.

Includes a free original soundtrack by musician Griffin Peterson

My Review

I just don't even know where to begin this review. I think this is my favorite book by Colleen Hoover. 

Life is full of "maybe somedays" Maybe Someday I will be this or that, maybe someday I will stand on my two feet. Maybe someday all of my dreams will come true. At some point in your life you will have said maybe someday. Sydney's 'maybe someday' was heartbreaking, beautiful, and longing. Every emotion that she was feeling was conveyed in just those two simple words. 

This book is a love triangle, and while I know some people will shy away from it because of that, I need to say I think you need to give it a shot. You won't be disappointed, not in the author, and not in any of the characters. I know. I know, love triangles are horrible. Someone always gets hurt, someone is always the bad guy and it is always, always easy to pick a team. Well, forget all that shit. It does not apply here. Not once was I mad at Sydney or Ridge. Heck, I couldn't even not love Maggie. I fell in love with each and every character in this book, well except Hunter and Tori because they are douchebags. I loved the dual POVs, how seemingly effortless the story flowed and the lyrics. Especially the lyrics. If you loved Colleen Hoover's poems in the Slammed Series then you are going to adore her lyrics. I want these songs now! EVERY.SINGLE.ONE! I think the songs add so much more to this already amazing book!  

Sydney is one of my favorite female characters. There isn't even one thing I didn't admire about her. I admired her strength and her right hook :) I admired how hard she tried to fight her feelings, how she tries her hardest to not be the girl everyone hates. But not because she didn't want others to hate her. No, because she didn't want to hate herself and become someone she isn't. 
The relationship between Ridge and Sydney was just simply beautiful. Their friendship was so easy. It just came easy to be themselves. Good or bad. Honest. I love Ridge. I love the relationship he has with Maggie. With Warren. With Sydney. I could probably gush about this book over and over again. But instead I will just say read it for yourself. I laughed. I cried. I fell in love. I got my heartbroken. And then I fell in love even more. I was so sucked into this story that I felt like I was living it. Every emotion or thought Ridge or Sydney had, I did too. I know this review is just gushing but I just can't say more without fear of spoiling. Fall in love with music and everything in between...

**Also after reading be sure to check out the epilogue on Colleen Hoover's website! 

5 stars!
