Before I start presenting you the left pieces of my by Colleen personally shredded heart, I just wanted to warn you: this is a CoHo review, which might will be a bit, but just a bit, emotional….;)
What a Colleen Book does to you is nothing you can easily put into words.
Let me explain it this way. Yesterday I was supposed to meet a friend in the evening. I had a relaxed day that began with, of course, reading this new masterpiece.
What I did the whole day? No answer needed at this point. 😉
So when I was on my way to meet my friend, I had exactly 42 pages left. The train comes every 20 minutes. So 20 minutes and the time it takes to get there added might be enough time to finish .
So yes, I was late on purpose to finish this book. This is what Colleen´s books do to me.
But it was worth it. You need more reasons?
Because the writing is wonderful. Because the plot line is so Colleen like. Because the characters are so Colleen like.
Every time I start a new book written by her, I have a little fight with myself. A fight about the need to turn the first page to open the door to a new Colleen adventure filled with tears, laughter, anger, ….emotions. .A fight about leaving this book on my TBR shelf a little bit longer. Because it feels good to know there is another unread Colleen Book.
But in the end I , of course , ended up with turning the pages-all of them in one day.
And I don regret it! Because with this book Colleen made her readers one of the most wonderful presents. She wrote a story which felt like it´s about us. The people commenting on her posts and books. The people who interact with her. She listened. And this is what you get with “November 9”.
There is a quote in the book which says: “You can’t leave yet. I’m not finished falling in love with you.”
That´s how I felt after turning the last page. With a waterfall of tears in my eyes while being to late….
Colleen, I blame it on you!
