Yes, you saw that right. I just gave a CoHo book four stars. Am I becoming a convert? …I wouldn’t go that far yet. Let’s see if this trend continues.
I think anyone who participates in a bookish community, be it through TikTok or Instagram or GoodReads, has a soft spot for books about books. November 9 strikes the right balance- with conversations about hated tropes (hello instalove), the difference between bad and good romance, and book boyfriends – without having it take over the narrative.
I liked that the characters actually addressed the similarities in their circumstances to Sleepless in Seattle and One Day. I love One Day and have seen it way too many times, so I may have been predisposed to liking November 9. Don’t worry, there is still plenty of CoHo angst and red flags to keep faithful readers happy.
