What I Actually Read in February

The Midnight Library by Matt Haig is definitely one of my favorite reads so far this year. Imagine if there is a place you visit between living and death. In this case it is a library and the main character has a chance to replay regrets and decide where she wants to stay. Fantasy at it’s best.
The Last Flight is a psychological thriller. Two women, both abused by men, decide to leave their lives behind. The author tells their story jumping back and forth between the two characters. A bittersweet and unexpected ending.

In Five Years by Rececca Serle

In Five Years, is in some ways a love story but really more about friendship and knowing yourself.  One of the main characters is Dannie Kohan, a corporate lawyer who has everthing planned out.  After nailing an interview for her dream job and getting engaged to her longtime boyfriend she falls asleep on the couch.  When she wakes up she finds herself in a different apartment, with a different ring on her finger and beside a  different man.  Looking over at the TV she sees a date:  2025, five years in the future.   Returning to present she is shaken by the dream and even more so when she comes face to face with the man in person.
This story is about love, not only romantic love but friendship, about being a parent and letting go of expectations.
It is a great read for the beginning of 2021.
