BOOK REVIEW: Maybe Not: A Novella by Colleen Hoover



Colleen Hoover, the New York Times bestselling author of Maybe Someday, brilliantly brings to life the story of the wonderfully hilarious and charismatic Warren in a new novella, Maybe Not.

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 not




Thank you so much Colleen Hoover for writing this novella. Last week, when I saw the announcement of Maybe Not I said, I HAVE TO READ IT AS SOON AS IT IS PUBLISHED!! I didn’t care about the schedule for the blog or anything, I had to read it because it was a spin off of Maybe Someday, book that I love so freaking much, and because it was about Warren and Bridgette. So i squeezed my schedule and read Maybe Not in 2 nights. I LOVED IT! It was funny, sexy and the best part is that IT IS DRAMA FREE!! Being inside Warren’s head was very interesting. From Sidney and Ridge’s POV, he was the very cool best friend and roommate, very funny, a real prankster and he was a P-O-R-N addict! HaHaHa yes, that was what i thought about him, until I read Maybe Not. Aside from all that, Warren is an amazing guy, he is very mature, yeah I never thought that, very cocky, so good in bed. Oh Yeah, the sex, it was pretty HOT.

There was something I particularly loved about Warren: he was very patient and so understanding with Bridgette. She wasn’t the nicest person in the world, always so moody and rude to people, but Warren saw something in her. Of course it all began as a physical attraction, but it transformed into something else, something deeper, something beautiful.

I really enjoyed the moments they shared together, even the mornings when Warren said: “Hi Bridgette” and she only replied, “Screw you Warren” and he knew it was her unusual way to say hello to him. I laughed so much with this book, specially when they go to Warren’s sister’s house. Bridgette was so cute and awesome there.

So bad it was just a novella. It was amazing but it was too short. Can I have more please?

My Review



1530578_757139390966331_297148705_nColleen Hoover’s love for writing began in 1985 when she was five years old. Her first story was titled “Mystery Bob” and was a huge hit with her mother, who was really good at faking interest.

Colleen continued to write short stories for friends and family until December of 2011, when she decided to write a long story she titled, “Slammed.” She self-published SLAMMED to Amazon in January, 2012 and it hit the NYT’s bestsellers list in May, 2012. She has since signed with Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster, and now has six NYT’s bestsellers. Colleen prefers to be called a writer, as the term “author” still terrifies her and makes this feel like a job with expectations. She doesn’t work well under pressure and hopes writing will always remain fun and exciting.
Colleen’s newest novel, UGLY LOVE, releases August 5th, 2014. She is currently working on a new novel, CONFESS, which she is writing as fast as she can before she wakes up from this crazy dream.

You can follow Colleen on Instagram and Twitter @colleenhoover. You can also find her on her blog at where she holds a daily book-a-day giveaway, or on her very active Facebook page at where she loves to give away more free stuff when her husband isn’t looking.

Colleen also wants the world to know that writing short biographies in third person is incredibly awkward.
