Author : Colleen Hoover
Publisher : Atria Books
Date of Publication : March 18th, 2014
Synopsis : Maybe Someday
Review :

This one is my fav,,, 

Watching him from here,
Seeing something from so far away
Get a little closer every day
Thinking that I want to make it mine
I’d run to him if I could stand
 But I can’t make that demand
What I want I can’t demand
Cuz what I want is you
If I could be his, I would wait
And if can’t be yours now
I’ll wait here on this ground
Till you come, till you take me away
Maybe someday
Maybe someday

Trying to ignore the things you say
You turn to me
I turn away
Hurts to see you every day
Smell your perfume on my bed
Thoughts of you invade my head

Truths are written, never said. 

Sydney's life is close to perfect. She lives with her best friend and her boyfriend Hunter loves her so much. She's also got a neighbor who played guitar well. But on her 22nd birthday, she lost everything. Her boyfriend cheated on her with her best friend and now she is homeless. Life can be so cruel and unfair sometimes, but God will never give us a challenge that can’t be challenged or a problem that can’t be solved. Just like a hero in movies, her neighbor Ridge showed up at the right time and giving her a room to stay. That’s how things got even more complicated that it already has. Sydney fell in love with Ridge but sadly he already has the love of his world, Maggie. 

"Sometimes in life, we need a few bad days in order to keep the good ones in perspective."

The love that they had for each other is flawless. With all the flaws, ugly points, and their stupidities, they turned the imperfection into beauty. Something that most people can't see it that way. 

"If you can learn to love yourself and all the flaws, you can love other people so much better. And that makes you so happy." - Kristin Chenoweth.

I don't know if I've a right to pity Ridge for being born deaf, but I bet he won't allow me because he is doing so well that you won't even notice that he has inability to hear in the first place. The fear that he had overcome for the past years was amazing. 

"She understands me. She respects me. She astounds me. She predicts me. She's never once, since the second I met her, made me feel as if my inability to hear is even an inability at all."

Note to self  : 

If your boyfriend is cheated on you, just leave him right away and never look back even if he begged or cried or whatever.
1.     There is a possibility that he could cheat on you again.
2.     Quoted from Johnny Deep, if you love two people at the same time, you should choose the second one because if you really loved the first one, you wouldn't have fallen for the second one.

This book is so unique and original. Every single things about it is so special, the texting, even the lyrics are utterly good. I've noticed that the author has an incredible talent in translating words to poems by reading Slammed series. So i'm not surprise when I know Maybe Someday includes lyrics, guitar and musics. Usually I choose not to read anything that involves rock band, musics, etc. I don't even remember if I've ever read one. But there is always a first in everything. And this book is a very good one.
