12 days of reading: 'maybe someday' by colleen hoover

As 2015 comes to a close, I'm looking back at and celebrating some of my favorites reads from the year via the 12 Days of Reading. Enjoy!

Day 1: Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover

Haven't you always wondered what it would be like to fall for the boy next (ish) door? Especially if he was a totally adorable musician, who created tunes that turned your heart and soul into mush?

About the Book
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.

After a couple of years of following (i.e. stalking) Colleen Hoover on Facebook and adding her books to my to-read list, I finally committed myself to reading Maybe Someday during my summer vacation. Not to brag, but this turned out to be a really smart decision on my part for a couple of reasons: 1) It was really good. 2) Because I didn't have to worry about waking up early for work, I could stay up late flipping the pages on this one guilt-free.

Without giving away too much--which is hard, because I desperately want to talk to all of you about a pretty crucial twist that happens early on, but it would spoil everything if I bring it up now--this story quickly surpassed my expectations. It offered up some rather clever story elements while also producing characters that were both relatable and unique.

Hoover masterfully writes from both male and female points of view while crafting a compelling story that left me hardcore crushing on Ridge.
