OK - I read this the week of Halloween into November because I wanted something spooky.... & spooky it was. But it also was a little confusing to me.
The idea of the book was interesting & creepy. Parts of it left me a little lost but other parts held my attention & then the next little bit, I was confused. In the end, are the twins really Changlings or has Lauren's past issues confused her. It really did hold my attention to the end with the mystery of it all.
In the end, it was OK. I made it through the whole book so it held my attention enough - but is it something I'm gasping over - nah. & I DEFINITELY wouldn't recommend to any new mother to read - OHHHH NOOO WAYYYY.

Quick Summary: Oona's birthday is New Years Day & when she is is waiting on NYE for the strike of midnight for her 19th birthday, everything changes. From there, every midnight on NYE, Oona jumps on her time line - falling into her life at various ages - going forward & back - piecing the parts of her life together.
I really am a fan of Time Traveler's Wife - love the book and the movie. This book gave me those same sort of vibes.
I had a lot of questions reading it - any time you bring time travel in, I think you open a HUGE door of questions that have no answer - but you just have to remember time travel isnt real, so just go with it.
I just loved Oona - & the whole story was interesting how she goes from 19 to her 50's back to her 20's ... her finding out what's going on in her life. The fun references in some of the ages were fun too - very Forrest Gump, crossing paths of famous people down the road.
The book has some fun twists & turns & I think I gasped a few times. It also is heartwarming & moving... & really a great reminder to love the day you are in.

I wouldnt recommend this. It would be a good Netflix made movie - with an updated script.
Quick Summary: A famous actress is hiding a secret & one person knows who she really is. When her husband goes missing & she's accused of his death, will all her secrets come to light?
OK - I wanted to read this author's books after I read Rock, Paper, Scissors & enjoyed it so much. This one had the very much same creepy, mystery vibe & I was anxious to see how this was going to turn out.
Little did I know that this was going to be one of the most difficult books for me to get through. Honestly - this needs some BIG TIME TRIGGER WARINGS on it. There's disgusting animal abuse, there's child abuse, & the end of the story - I wont give it away but I honestly got nauseated. If I didnt have only 30 pages left, I would have just put it down ... or thrown it if it wasn't on my Kindle.
I personally wouldnt recommend this book - but if you like disturbing, mental trauma, then go for it.
