“Maybe in Another Life” by Taylor Jenkins Reid

★★★★☆

New release Tuesday! Purchase the book here.

Maybe in Another LifeMaybe in Another Life is a book with an intriguing twist akin to a choose your own adventure, but the main character chooses instead of the reader.

Hannah is a habitual mover, having lived in multiple different cities since graduating, but now she’s going to try moving back to her hometown — LA. The beginning of the book starts off with the same story (Hannah arriving back in LA, going to a party with her old friends), but when Hannah is faced with the choice of going home to settle in, or staying out with her ex-boyfriend Ethan (who she still has feelings for), the story splits in two. There are consequences and benefits to both timelines — both include life-altering events that Hannah will not be able to run away from, like she has always done in the past.

Interestingly enough, though the two timelines are night-and-day different, some things must always be meant to happen in life. It’s an interesting ride, to see what happens to Hannah and her friends around her as these alternate universes play out, chapter by chapter. Maybe in Another Life definitely belongs on your beach/summer reading list. Best read while eating a cinnamon roll.

Thank you to the publisher for providing me a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
