The Other You | J. S. Monroe

This had a really interesting premise and the story was good but the ending was a little rushed for me. I wanted more detail about the reasons behind it all. The story is told over a few days by various people in the story. I liked hearing from Silas as it showed the actions of the police in the story. The plot builds slowly and steadily. It's quite modern looking at how much technology does for us and how bad it can be. #readersfirst

jeannasser This looks interesting. It's found its way into my TBR list for sure 👍👊 1mo

This was a good thriller once it got going. It was a bit slow at the beginning but I'm so glad I stuck with it because the end was very clever. I was so hoping for a big twist at the end. I predicted some but not all of it. The plot was interesting with some amazing twists. Its told from Caroline and Aidan's point of view adding more depth and confusion. The characters were interesting especially Aidan. #readersfirst

I‘m a quarter of a way through this book and I‘m loving it! I‘m noticing things that I think will be important later and I‘m looking forward to seeing where it goes. #tbr #readersfirst #arc #bookworm #bookflatlay

Continuing Anton‘s upstairs/downstairs look at life in a Grand London hotel in the 1930s. The focus shifts to other characters this time, Nancy‘s anxious younger brother Frank has joined the hotel as a page, Maynard‘s secret is under threat, Helene considers a new romance & wealthy Vivienne may have found her purpose in life. It‘s firmly in the realm of historical fiction, rather than straight-up romance, with the politics of the time 👇

RachelO never distant from the main storylines. I didn‘t love it as much as the first book, but that may be because I read them in such quick succession. And he may have fallen into a couple of relationship tropes, which disappointed me a little. Overall though, an enjoyable read - look forward to the next one! Thanks #readersfirst for the review copy. (edited) 3mo
RachelO @Birdsong28 Hi Victoria! Did you ever get a copy of this? If not I‘ll pop it in the post to you in a week or so, when I get back from my travels. 😘 3mo
Birdsong28 @RachelO No I didn't 😭. That is so kind of you and I really appreciate you thinking of me ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️😘😘😘😘😘❤️❤️❤️📚📖 3mo

RachelO @Birdsong28 No probs! As you hadn‘t mentioned, I guessed you hadn‘t- I‘m away for 10 days, so it‘llbe a couple of weeks 😊 I‘ve got a long wait for the next one now! 3mo
Birdsong28 @RachelO No rush just post it when you can. I will be looking forward to it. 😘 📚 📖 3mo
RachelO @birdsong28 Urgh!!!! This went in the post first class on Monday... and tracking says they haven‘t tried to deliver it yet. If you end up with another red card, can you send me a photo, and I‘ll make a formal complaint- I‘m worried there‘s a mismatch between what my PO says is OK and what yours does. She assured me it was fine size-wise... Hopefully they‘re just being slow. 3mo
Birdsong28 @RachelO The post hasn't been yet and I didn't get a red card yesterday so here's hoping it gets here ok 🤞. I will keep you updated. Yes you should lodge a complaint about this 😡 3mo
Birdsong28 @RachelO Just letting you know that I have received your book. Thank you so much 😘📚📙. 3mo
RachelO Seriously??! Without paying excess? 🤞🤞 Glad it arrived and sorry for the stress - tracking still says it hasn‘t been delivered! I‘ve been composing ranty complaints letters in my head all day. Am absolutely investing in some parcel-measuring thinggies!!! 3mo
Birdsong28 @RachelO Yes. It's fine there was no stress on my end. I would still put in a complaint about your post office as it's the second time something has happened to you they obviously don't know what they are doing at your post address 3mo
Birdsong28 @RachelO Meant to say post office lol! If your complaint helps someone else as they are probably doing worse to other people's letters/parcels 3mo

Only 2 days late!!

This is my #weeklyforecast - I will review Anton‘s next book before #readersfirst start sending me grumpy emails or decide to blacklist me. Enjoying it so far 👍

And have a 4 hour round-trip by train on Saturday, so Pratchett on audio and Treasure Island!!! as light reading, both physically and mentally (it‘s exceedingly silly!)

Cinfhen Those ARCs are both delightful and torturous!! I try to keep up but sometimes I just fall far behind 🙄😬 4mo
RachelO @Cinfhen Yup! My NetGalley heap never recovered from my over enthusiasm when I first signed up 😬📚📚📚 4mo
MatchlessMarie @RachelO same. I'm trying to make next month #NetgalleyNovember so I can finally remove my shame 😅 4mo
RachelO @MatchlessMarie Glad to know I‘m not alone! It‘s a good idea - I might join you and see if I can nudge my rating up another 5%... 4mo

And now onto something completely different!

squirrelbrain Ooh, did you get that from #readersfirst? I haven‘t requested a book on there for aaaages.... 4mo
RachelO @squirrelbrain Maybe... From a while back... (over a year 🤭) I‘m on an ARCs catch-up 🤫 4mo
squirrelbrain Oh, my mistake! There‘s been an Anton du Beke on there in recent weeks but, just checked, and it‘s a different one! 4mo
RachelO @squirrelbrain ...and that could be why I‘m on an ARCs catch-up. I don‘t often request from RF, so was v surprised to receive Book 2, but I really need to get through Book 1 first! 4mo
squirrelbrain 😁👍 Enjoy! 4mo
