We’ve witnessed an evolution in the world of adult fiction, and one name that consistently stands out is Colleen Hoover. With her work, “Maybe Someday,” she has indeed captured the hearts of many, reminding us of the timeless allure of love, music, and genuine emotion.
For an overview of all Colleen Hoover books, check out this article.
Two characters, Sydney and Ridge, are at the heart of this tale. Their bond is one of kindred spirits, a connection initially rooted in music. As they strum their guitars on opposite balconies, a musical dialogue begins, paving the way for a deeper, more intimate relationship. Their partnership is unique, a blend of melody and emotions that perfectly captures the ups and downs of love.
One of the most riveting aspects of their relationship is the way they communicate. Ridge’s deafness, rather than being a barrier, enhances their bond. It paves the way for an array of nonverbal exchanges, from simple gestures to the art of songwriting. The playfulness between them, as seen in their witty text banter, provides a heartwarming touch to their journey.
Music is an essential character in this narrative. The songs penned down by Sydney and Ridge aren’t just melodies; they are an emotional testament to their journey. Take “Living a Lie,” for instance, which resonates with the dramatic flair of a Coldplay piano ballad. On the other hand, “Maybe Someday” captivates with a rhythm reminiscent of the Lumineers, symbolizing the hope and anticipation of a future together.
However, love isn’t always simple. As Ridge grapples with his feelings for both Sydney and Maggie, his long-distance girlfriend, readers are taken on an emotional roller-coaster. Maggie’s character is a testament to strength and understanding, adding depth to the narrative. As secrets unfold and emotions peak, what stands out is the refreshing honesty with which the characters face their dilemmas.
“Maybe Someday” isn’t just a book; it’s an experience. Colleen Hoover, with her knack for weaving unforgettable characters and palpable tension, ensures that readers are in for a treat. The novel serves as a gentle reminder of love, the magic of music, and the importance of genuine emotion.
