    The Inbetween Days by Eva Woods was beautiful, brilliant, and uplifting!

    How can I describe this book? It truly makes you appreciate being alive and what life has to offer each and everyone of us.

    Eva Wood writes an emotional story that hits close to your heart with words that flow ever so beautifully across these pages. I was intrigued and pulled in by page one. The art to her words that create such beautiful imagery as you read each and every page.

    The storyline is absolutely heart-breaking. M

    I received a copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway.

    The Inbetween Days is like a much deeper and better version of If I Stay, and right from Page 1 it makes it clear that the story's going to be good. Eva Woods has a talent for not only writing from the point-of-view of one character, so everything around Rosie comes to life. Background fixtures like an office worker up in his skyscraper and Dot, a kind ghostly woman who drifts in for a visit, get their moments whereas in other books they mig

    4.5 Stars

    The Inbetween Days by Eva Woods is a heartfelt story of love and redemption. The dual timelines and alternating points of view make the book interesting. Rosie, the main character is very relatable and the theme of family is strong in this contemporary novel.

    This is my 2nd book by Eva Woods. Her book Something like Happy I gave it 5 stars. So I was excited to started on this one. This book was great! I could not put it down! Another 5 star book!!

    I’ve read a couple of books similar to this where someone is in a coma and she/he hears everything people are saying around her or him but the doctors don’t know if she/he can or not. It always has me thinking if this really does happen. Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for giving me this book for my h

    She just floated in the gray, the halfway, the in-between.

    Let me start with the writing style. Eva Woods managed to create this lyrical tone in the book that made the words flow off the page. She created deep emotion in a short time and created a story that hits close to home, regardless of who you are or the experiences you have had.

    The story itself was absolutely breathtaking. To have to go through what Rosie does is heart wrenching. The decisions she has to make and the things she has to se

    The Inbetween Days by author Eva Woods is BRILLIANT! It is one of the most thought-provoking books I have read this year. The character of Rosie is in a coma after being hit by a big red bus. Did she fall in front of the oncoming bus, or did she intentionally walk into the path? Those are a couple of the questions you will have as you read The Inbetween Days. Rosie can hear the words which are being spoken over her hospital bed, but she is not able to wake up or move. She hears the doctors tell ...more

    I’m a sucker for sister stories, so I was excited to receive an ARC of The Inbetween Days. Rosie and Daisy are barely speaking to each other when Rosie is involved in a tragic bus accident, and ends up in a coma. Daisy becomes terrified that Rosie tried to take her own life, and mourns their strained relationship. Rosie, on the other hand, embarks on a Christmas Carolesque review of her life.

    Both sisters are compelling characters, and I was definitely curious to see where Rosie’s memories took

    Thank you @harlequinbooks and @goodreads for this advanced copy of The Inbetween Days by Eva Woods.

    Rosie is in a coma after being hit by a double-decker in London. She is conscious but can't remember anything about her life prior to the accident. While in her hospital bed, she is visited by different people; some alive and some dead. They are trying to help her remember her life and come out of the coma. She has th

    I rarely talk to my husband about books. He doesn't read and just doesn't get my love for books. This book was on my mind so much I had to tell him about it. I loved this book! Rosie was hit by a bus. Was it accident or did she mean to walk in front of it? As Rosie lays in a coma, people from her past visit her and relive some of her memories with her. Rosie's life has been hard. As she relives her memories, she needs to decide if she will wake up. I loved Rosie and her sister Daisy. The charact ...more

    This novel transpires over a period of 3 critical days. Rosie Cooke has been hit by a bus. She now lies in a coma and the doctors fear that if she doesn't awaken within a period of 3 days her chances of coming back without serious consequences are few, if at all. The question is, was it an accident or was she trying to end her life? No one knows, not even Rosie, who can hear almost all of the time, but is unable to move or speak. She doesn't

    I’ve never read anything by this author in the past, but the blurb sounded interesting. Sadly, the story didn’t grab me as much as the blurb did.

    Rosie is in a coma after being hit by a bus. The question is whether it was an accident or intentional. Unfortunately, Rosie is unable to answer that question. She can hear others talking, and even see people some of whom are no longer alive and remind her of her past, painful memories. Will they cause her to wake up?

    The story has themes of love, family

    This is the first book I have read from this author, and I loved it. Thank you so much for the ARC through Goodreads.
    This is a story about love, family, forgiveness, choices that are made and the impact of how our own actions affect each others lives - family, loved ones, friends and even strangers.

    I am still in awe of this novel. It is beyond a moving, emotional journey that your heart foes on as you travel through the memories of a young woman in a coma. Reading of the mess that she saw of her life, of the pain she inflicted on others and of how her very existence and mistakes caused such ramifications for others is amazing to the senses.
    This is truly a not to miss novel.

    I liked the way the chapters are paced. The entire idea of the story is, to me, a bit reminiscent of George Bailey in It's a Wonderful Life - you never know how your life is intersecting/influencing those of others around you.

    The Inbetween Days is a truly uplifting story that makes you reflect on your life and feel grateful to be alive! I loved how it was told from the alternating points of view of Rosie and her sister Daisy. Having read and loved If I Stay by Gayle Forman, I was drawn into the premise of Rosie being stuck in the in-between of life and death. Eva Woods did a wonderful job of ushering the reader through Rosie's life with brief glances into her memories which were artfully crafted to give the reader ju ...more

    I was sucked into the story after reading the first paragraph. The story was reminiscent of The Ghost of Christmas past. The protagonist, Rosie is lead through a series of memories, while in a coma, after a possible suicide attempt. The cast of characters were likable and endearing. The story flowed well and continuously tugged at my heart strings. While Rosie appeared to live a flawed life, her behavior inspired those she interacted with to lead their best lives. The conclusion of the story kep ...more

    Rosie’s story is told from the alternating viewpoints of Rosie herself, in a coma after being hit by a bus, and her sister Daisy. As Rosie is in the coma, she receives several visits from several people in her life who have already passed on, and they accompany her on various trips back in time through her memory. It was fascinating to see how this author told the story of Rosie‘s life in these out-of-order flashbacks, and how easy it was to follow with the lead Rosy to the hospital bed with thi ...more

    "It's the people whose lives you touched-- that's what matters. Who remembers you. The difference you made. That's the only way you live on."
    A wonderfully thought provoking book that made me ponder who would notice if I was no longer here on earth?
    Rosie is in a coma when she is hit by a bus. Did she want to get hit by the bus?
    While lying in the hospital bed attached to life support, she receives many visitors. How is this possible that so many of these folks were long gone from this life on eart
