In Five Years by Rebecca Serle


A few days ago, I found myself at the start of what could have become a book hangover. When this happens, I normally go for a quick and easy read to get my reading mojo back. I’d seen a few really good reviews for In Five Years by @rebecca_serle so that’s what I went for, and it proved to be an excellent choice.

📖

Dannie is a Type-A Manhattan lawyer who has it all planned; she knows how she wants her life to be and she’s on the path to having it all. On the day that she nails the most important job interview of her career she also gets engaged to the perfect man.

📖

That night Dannie falls asleep only to wake up in a different apartment, with a different ring on her finger and a different man next to her. The date on the TV shows it’s the same night - just five years in the future.

📖

When she wakes up and realises it was a dream, she files it away in the back of her mind. However, four and half years later Dannie meets the man from her dream on the street. And let’s just say her carefully laid plans start to go awry.

📖

In all honesty I was expecting this to be a book I raced through, predicting everything that would happen but I was so wrong. It’s one of those books that you just get swept away with, I couldn’t stop reading and while I thought I had the plot nailed, I didn’t.

📖

This is so much more than an ordinary love story, I’m not going to tell you to much because you need to read it. I will say that it warmed my heart and broke my heart in equal measure. In Five Years makes for some really compelling reading, I cared about the characters from quite early on in the book and had sympathy for them all. 📖

In Five Years is out next March and it’s another one that I would definitely recommend. Thank you so much @quercusbooks I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and have put her other book The Dinner List straight on to my Christmas wish list.

What do you normally read to help you get over a book hangover?
