November 9 is really popular among the TikTok reading community. So I guess I had pretty high expectations for it.
As I was reading it, I was surprised by how cheesy and far-fetched it was. About 80% of it is really cheesy. Then it kind of comes together where it seems less cheesy because there’s a series of twists that pull it all together. But, for me, the last 20% was too late. I had already written this book off in my mind as the cheesiest love story I had ever read.
In the end it was a good book, but I definitely didn’t love it like so many TikTokers out there seem to.
