I’m so excited to share the cover for Maybe in Another Life by Taylor Jenkins Reid! If you must know, I discovered the awesome Ms. Reid last year when I read her novel After I Do: A Novel. This book became one of my top reads last year and I couldn’t wait to read more from her.
Maybe In Another Life is Taylor Jenkins Reid’s third novel and judging from the blurb alone, it promises to be another compelling read.
At the age of twenty-nine, Hannah Martin still has no idea what she wants to do with her life. She has lived in six different cities and held countless meaningless jobs since graduating college, but on the heels of a disastrous breakup, she has finally returned to her hometown of Los Angeles. To celebrate her first night back, her best friend, Gabby, takes Hannah out to a bar—where she meets up with her high school boyfriend, Ethan.
It’s just past midnight when Gabby asks Hannah if she’s ready to go. Ethan quickly offers to give her a ride later if she wants to stay.
What happens if she leaves with Gabby?
What happens if she leaves with Ethan?
In concurrent storylines, Hannah lives out the effects of each decision. Quickly, these parallel universes develop into surprisingly different stories with far-reaching consequences for Hannah and the people around her, raising questions like: Is anything meant to be? How much in our life is determined by chance? And perhaps most compellingly: Is there such a thing as a soul mate?
Hannah believes there is. And, in both worlds, she believes she’s found him.
I am immediately reminded of a Gwyneth Paltrow film Sliding Doors, which I loved, so I am so excited to read this book. And knowing how crazy talented this author is, I am on pins and needles while waiting for this book. I cannot wait.
