Maybe Not (Maybe Someday #1.5) by Colleen Hoover

Book summary:
"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."

         I don't think it ever happened to me that I loved a novella more than the actual book. But here we are experiencing that moment, cause people! This book! It was HILARIOUS! I'll just point out some of the elements I loved here but it's worth reading just because of all the laughter it probably prolongs your life for a year or two.

Short but sweet. Usually when reading novellas I have problem that I miss some information as you cannot put everything into such format. You have to leave things behind. But honestly I'm starting to believe that NA novels would probably work better in this short format, than they do as full novels. If you wonder why, well all unnecessary drama is cut! Yes, believe it or not! There wasn't a single moment when I thought "Don't start all the drama again". It was a bliss.

Male POV. I don't remember when was the last time I got to read a book from male POV that was done like this. It was so good. I believe that was another reason why there wasn't so much drama (I know I sound like a parrot but I LOVE THE LACK OF DRAMA HERE). So yeah, Warren rocks. Also he is one of the guys Glass and I won't fight over. Ha! I'd love him as a friend, and I'll leave all nasty things to Glass.

Laughing your ass off. But really people. There was that moment I believe at 66% of the book when  I just couldn't hold it any longer and I started laughing out loud. They were hilarious. I couldn't do anything else but laugh every time I though about that scene. It's a good thing I was home alone, as I didn't have to pull out the good ol' one
So yeah. Go and read it, when someone like me tells you to read NA - you my friends, go and do it! 

Rating: 5 stars.

Until the next time,

  1. This sounds absolutely wonderful Tanja! :D I love how it's short but sweet and emotional at the same time - definitely a highlight. And I love when male POV is done correctly. Too many times women try to write from a male POV but make it sound inauthentic, but it sounds like Coleen nailed it here. :D Thanks for sharing!

  6. I still have yet to read a novel by Colleen Hoover! I have no idea why I keep putting it off, this one sounds so fun and I love the concept behind it. A book that can make me laugh out loud is always a winner to me!

  7. I'm so glad you enjoyed this one, Tanja! Hoover isn't an author who works for me, sadly, but I do have better luck with her male POVs so maybe I'll give this one a try. Wonderful review, dear!(:

  8. OMFG YOU LOVED IT HAHAHAHHA. I loved it a lot too! more than MS tbh and it's one of my favorite CoHo books ever! I laughed so much too and they're just so funny and cute you can't help but laugh. LOL! Warren is so awesome :) And yes! It's not as you are missing some information or something, no! There's intrigue, but you get it like a speed course through a full length novel and it never feels like there's something missing. So happy you're loving NA lately. (NOW NOOOOOOOOOOWWWW ADDICTED SERIES TANJA... tsk tsk)

  10. Hahaha! It's true. When you like NA, it has got to be great. But like I just said in my previous comment, I'm not interested in these books, but who knows? I may give it a go sometime. Great review as always!
