The Love of My Other Life
Bookgyrl, Goodreads: 5/5 stars

When I read the blurb I thought I knew where the book was going to be about. I was so wrong.

I remember a movie with Gwyneth Paltrow called ‘Sliding Doors’ about split decisions that change your life and how this plays out.

This story about Josie is about a bike-accident she has that somehow puts her in a parallel life. She has a different house, career and an amazing husband. But what about the other Josie? And is this life what she wants?

What an amazing read. I loved the ending!

Both lives have ups and downs. It tugged at my heartstrings. The decisions they are faced with, the sadness but also happiness.

What an amazing read. I loved the ending! I highly recommend.

The Love of My Other Life
Jasmine J., Goodreads: 5/5 stars

What I loved:
-Josie! She is very relatable, endearing, and I really loved her personality. I would feel the same way she did if I woke up to a new life.
-the first chapter had me hooked! I had to know how this story would unfold. I also had to know how this was happening!
-Even though her new life sounds awesome, we still deal with some heartbreaks along the way. This made the story more believable in terms of not everything is greener on the other side. Also creates more at stake on what life she wants.

I honestly couldn’t put it down. This is definitely a book everyone needs to add to their summer reads!

This book is a great romance, and a perfect summer read. I often loved the romance elements, and the funny moments. But even the heartbreaking moments were realistic and hits you right in the feels. I found the writing style to be great and really sucks you in. I was able to finish this book in less than 24 hours. I honestly couldn’t put it down. This is definitely a book everyone needs to add to their summer reads! Thank you to Netgalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review!
