Leah - oh hi, month-old review that’s been sitting in an open tab since I first saw it D:
I loved this one so much and completely agree with everything you have to say about it, right down to immediately wanting to dive into it again. I’m seriously in awe of how Shari was able to BELIEVABLY (!) weaves these characters’ lives together. The scene at the airport was what really made me gasp and realize just how far ahead she had to have planned everything.
Such a lovely book ♥

Alexa S. - Your review of In Some Other World, Maybe is lovely, E! I’ve had my eye on this one for a while, but I definitely want it even more after seeing what you thought of it. It’s definitely interesting to ponder all of the “what ifs” in life, and I like that it’s a part of the novel in a big way.

Meg - Okay, I’m convinced! I read Netzer’s Shine Shine Shine and both enjoyed and was confused by it, and I have a hunch this will be the same. But in a good way! Looking forward to reading it.

Mawa Mahima - Well, the prospect does sound intriguing! I have a soft spot for scientists, so I think I’ll like this one…and also how could the mothers have known that their kids would hit it off? :O It sounds chilling, but I can’t help but feel that it would be awesome (and slightly terrifying) if this was a piece of nonfiction!
