The Other Me

This one took me about 80 pages to get into but once I got into it, I was hooked and couldn’t put it down (I stayed up until 1am finishing it!!!). It’s perfect for fans of Sliding Doors. Kelly is a struggling Chicago artist, but overall, she likes her life. She is free-spirited and happy, with a close knit group of friends. On the night of her 29th birthday, she is at an art gallery. She opens a door and suddenly she’s in her Michigan hometown with twelve years of all new memories (plus, her old memories… confusing!). She is married to Eric, a sweet and handsome guy that she barely knew in high school. Her whole family is there for her birthday dinner and everything is… very different. In this life, he’s her high school sweetheart. She still lives in her hometown, never went to art school and is instead a graphic designer who can barely paint (and seems a little bit bored, to be honest!). At first, Eric seems pretty perfect but as time goes on, she begins to think he might be behind this sudden switch. I liked this book because this sort of plot hasn’t been done before – it felt very fresh and because of that, it kept me on my toes.  It’s also a great exploration of “what if!?!” Order on or Amazon.
