Book Review

In Five Years follows Dannie, a twenty-something lawyer on the biggest day of her life she interviews for her dream job and her longtime boyfriend David proposes to her. But when she falls asleep and wakes up five years in the future with a different man. When she wakes up in the present she can’t seem to shake that future vision of her life, especially when she meets that man from her dreams four years later.

In Five Years comments on how life doesn’t always go the way you planned, but that’s often for the best. It plays on the favorite interview question: “Where do you see yourself in five years?” recognizing that even the planning doesn’t mean the future will look the way you plan.

I enjoyed In Five Years. It was just the right length, it pulled my heartstrings, and it was not predictable. What I didn’t like about it was that it was not a romance, despite the setup at the beginning. But if you get past the fact that this is not a love story, you find a gorgeous story about friendship and learning to accept changes to your life plan in order to find happiness.

Thank you to Netgalley and Atria Books for the review copy!
