Friday Book Beginnings and The Friday 56: NOVEMBER 9 by Colleen Hoover

This is the second time I’m partaking in these two weekly Friday-features: Friday Book Beginnings and The Friday 56. Yeah! I’m so excited. Friday Book Beginnings is hosted by Rose City Reader and in this weakly meme you share the first (or two) sentences from the book you’re currently reading. I’m combining it with the meme The Friday 56, hosted by Freda’s Voice, because they overlap. In this feature you share a teaser from page 56 (or 56% in your reader) of the book you’re reading. One of the book I’m currently reading is November by Colleen Hoover. She is one of my favorite authors. November 9 is a stand alone and one her newest releases. I’ll first share the blurb and a link to Goodreads, so you can add it to your TBR-list.



Beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover returns with an unforgettable love story between a writer and his unexpected muse.
Fallon meets Ben, an aspiring novelist, the day before her scheduled cross-country move. Their untimely attraction leads them to spend Fallon’s last day in L.A. together, and her eventful life becomes the creative inspiration Ben has always sought for his novel. Over time and amidst the various relationships and tribulations of their own separate lives, they continue to meet on the same date every year. Until one day Fallon becomes unsure if Ben has been telling her the truth or fabricating a perfect reality for the sake of the ultimate plot twist.

November 9 - quote 2



“I wonder what kind of sound it would make if I were to smash this glass against the side of his head. It’s a thick glass. His head is hard. The potential for a nice big THUD is there.”

That’s a nice starter, because you’re immediately curious to who Fallon is talking to and why she wants to bang the glass against the side of his head. I’m not going to explain that, because that would take the fun out of reading it yourself.



“He pulls back and brushes the hair out of her face. “Promise me you’ll let us help you.” She nods, wiping more tears away. She can barely get out the words thank you between sobs.”

I absolutely don’t know what is going on here, because I’m only at 27%. However, I am very curious as you can imagine. I don’t even know from whom’s point of view the story is being told at that point. Fallon or Ben?

What book are you currently reading? And what is your Book Beginning and/or Friday 56?
