Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover | Book Review

Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

Reading Group: High School+

Personal Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Synopses: At twenty-two years old, Sydney is enjoying a great life: She's in college, working a steady job, in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter, and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers that Hunter is cheating on her--and she's forced to decide what her next move should be.

Soon, Sydney finds herself captivated by her mysterious and attractive neighbor, Ridge. She can't take her eyes off him or stop listening to the passionate way he plays his guitar every evening out on his balcony. And there's something about Sydney that Ridge can't ignore, either. They soon find themselves needing each other in more ways than one.

A passionate tale of friendship, betrayal, and romance, Maybe Someday will immerse readers in Sydney's tumultuous world from the very first page.

Original music created for Maybe Someday by musician Griffin Peterson can be accessed through the website listed in the ebook and paperback.  

Cover: I like the cover of this book because I didn't notice the image within the words at first and I thought it was really creative when I finally saw it.  The main image is them together writing music on whoever's bed, but within the words you see them kissing.  It's kind of like the main image os what everyone sees, but hidden in the words is what is really going on.  Also similar as to how lyrics to music can have a broader meaning than what's actually being said.

My Review: Communication is key in any relationship so what do you do when your ability to communicate is different than most of the people around you?  Sydney and Ridge have it all figured out, they communicate mostly through text messages, and even though they're in love with each other, they will not act on it because Ridge has a girlfriend and Sydney was just cheated on by her boyfriend.  Except they do act on, just once, but does it matter how many times you physically act on something when you've been thinking about it for weeks on end?  From there everything spiraled and looked bad, but then it looked good, and my heart could barely handle it.  Honestly, guys, I always read the last couple pages of a book (I know, I know, I'm awful), so I knew how it ended, but I didn't know how it got to that point and my heart was hammering in my chest from the time she moves out of the apartment to when she goes and watches the band perform with Warren.  It reminded me of Beautiful Oblivion by Jamie McGuire and how Cami says that if you fall in love with two people you choose the second because if you were really in love with the first person, you wouldn't be able to have those feelings for someone else.  
Some parts made me think Sydney and Ridge were the cutest people on earth.  One was every time Ridge told her something he never told anyone else, another was when he talked out loud for her, and the final moment was when she learned sign language for him.  The fact that they were willing to communicate the way the other one did made me want to cry because it just showed how much they cared about each other and how far they were willing to go.
I also liked how the fact that some characters were deaf wasn't that big of a deal.  I mean, obviously, the book would have been different if Ridge wasn't deaf, but I liked how the book didn't start, "Hello my name is Ridge, and I'm deaf..."  It came up when it was necessary to come up.  I didn't know his girlfriend was deaf for a while into the book.  I just loved this book.  Please go read it.
