Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover
I am pretty sure a lot of you have tried to read a book at least once. Those of you who are fortunate managed to succeed at it, others were not that lucky. For those who have not been able to experience the magical, heavenly feeling of being totally immersed in a book, I give you this quote by the brilliant Harry Potter author, J.K Rowling “If you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book.” Good news is, I found the right book for you; it is Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover. This book is most significant for having a quick pace of events, digging deep down in the readers’ souls, and using easy, yet intriguing language.
The book starts with a girl, Sydney, punching her roommate, Tori (ex-roommate now) and her boyfriend, Hunter (ex-boyfriend now as well). Then, Sydney stays at her neighbor’s, Ridge, until she finds some other place to go, (at least that is how she intended for things to go). Things take a grave turn of events when she and Ridge, who already has a girlfriend, start developing feelings for each other. You are probably thinking that you have already got it all, the whole boyfriend, crush and betrayal drama. Well, I am glad to tell you that you are wrong. The book digs way deeper than that.
Colleen Hoover takes us on a journey inside ourselves. Suddenly, every girl is reflected in Sydney; whereas, Ridge is an echo for every man. The situations and dilemmas they face are so familiar; anyone of us could easily be in their shoes one day. Moreover, Hoover managed to add some brilliant quotes that prompt readers to stop, stare and think. For example, “Is life really that black-and-white though? Can a simple right or wrong define my situation?” This simple quote can keep you thinking for days, and it will definitely cross your mind in almost every situation you go through.
Maybe Someday will easily grab your attention for its good use of natural and genuine language and its perfect, yet easy style. Thus, do not worry if English is not your mother tongue; you will not need a dictionary by your side. Furthermore it is not just a page-turner, actually it is a page-stopper. You will feel the urge and desire to stop at every page and inhale it. You will want to inhale the great use of metaphors, the smart use of words, and the feelings and atmosphere of the whole novel.
In a nutshell, Maybe Someday can be described as the beginning of your never-ending dive in the ocean of books. Take a deep breath and sink into it. It is the most beautiful form of sinking, because it is only when you sink, do you really learn how to breathe.
