After I finished this book, I cried so much! I couldnt help myself. Honestly my friends shaped my life and made me who I am more than my own family. They saw ...more

i went into this expecting the story to go in a certain direction (think one day in december) and i was 100% sure of it right until the last 10 pages, when all of a sudden the story doesnt end like i thought it would. and its not like it comes out of nowhere. it makes sense and im not angry about it at all. i was just so sure it would end in a certain way, i was completely blind to clues ...more

Couldn't put this one down!
Although I'm not a huge romance reader, every now and then a book comes along that just warms (and breaks) my heart.
After reading the intriguing synopsis, I knew I wanted to read this one and find out just what In Five Years was all about.
Dannie is a Manhattan lawyer with a five year plan (I love that!). She has a wonderful career, boyfriend, New York life, BUT who is this man in her dreams? He seems so alive and "real" to her, but he is not in her five ...more
When she eventually wakes up back in her own timeline, she thinks it's a dream, though a very realistic one, and puts it behind her. ...more
I went into this book expecting a sweeping love story for the ages, one with a love triangle that would really feel heart wrenching and give me all those conflicted feels.
What I got was a love rhombus?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
A very weird and very strange love rhombus.
Because for so much of this book we knew the ending...
We knew the MC would end up in flagrante delicto with this guy who wasn't ...more
This book was nothing like I expected. If you're looking for a swoony romance or easy to read chick-lit type book, that's not what you're getting here. This was a hard-hitting contemporary fiction that hit me right in the feels. After reading the blurb, I thought I had an idea of how this book would go, but I wasn't prepared for what happened. It had twists and turns I didn't see coming, but I loved it.
Dannie is an attorney and a number oriented person. As a fellow Type-A person who ...more

"Where do you see yourself in five years?" is the quintessential interview question that most of us are required to BS our way through when getting our first job. Dannie, on the brink of getting her dream job, answers this question as well in an interview at the very beginning of the book. Things are going swell for Dannie: she has the dream boyfriend, a ritzy Manhattan lifestyle, and if she gets her position at this law firm, the perfect ...more
"Love doesn't require a future."
Can I just say I have mixed feelings?
Not because I didnt love the story but because Im not sure I agree with the ending.
What a heartbreaking and beautiful story! In Five Years brought out so many emotions in me.
The novel is a story of two best friends, their friendship and the love, loss and hope they experienced.
From the first moment I opened this book, I knew I wouldn't be able to put it away for any reason. It's one of those books that demand your ...more
I went into this thinking it was a romance, but I quickly discovered I was wrong.
In 5 Years is the story of two childhood friends Dannie and Bella, who are now 28, living in New York and can't be more different. While Dannie loves order, planning and stability, Bella is a spontaneous, free-spirited artist. Dannie has a very clear idea of where she'll be in 5 years from now - she'll be a corporate lawyer on her way of becoming a junior partner, married ...more

"What are the odds?"
"In a city of nine million? Less than zero."
On occasion - but not often - I read a book and I really don't know how I feel about it. Not in that way where I say I don't know how I feel to soften the blow before I explain why I didn't really like it... but a way where I liked certain aspects of it, really disliked others, and couldn't ever balance out my thoughts into anything resembling a star rating. This book was one of those. I'm going to leave the rating blank.
From the very beginning I had a bad feeling about this book so I couldn't read it properly, I just skimmed and scanned it to see where it goes. And in the end, I was happy that I didn't spend 5 or 6 hours on this book because the ending would frustrate the hell out of me.
Here is the result of my skim-scan and quick reading. It has all the spoilers so make sure you don't uncover it if you really want to read this book.

Heres some advice from me : Before reading this book, read others reviews first because the story is not what you think. Its not the same as the synopsis said.
I started having bad feelings about it when Dannie fell asleep and dreamed about her new life in the next five years with an unknown guy named Aaron. I found it pretty weird that even though she didnt know him, she still had sex with him anyway after a little talk. I was like WTF. In real life, ...more
I went through so many different emotions reading this book and that is not necessarily a good thing. The first few pages of In Five Years are enthralling - Rebecca Serle can write. I remember saying to my husband when I was 15% in that I could already tell that this had the potential to be a five-star book. Unfortunately, not long after, everything came crashing down.
Dannie is the type-A-personality-person that has her life together. She is methodical and mechanic. She has clear plans ...more
Love doesnt require a future.
This is most likely my final review of the year and although I failed by leaving more than 30 books on my Currently Reading shelf (which were 100% already read and only left there to serve as reminders of my failure to post things in a timely fashion), I can at least finish up the decade as a rightreader for once and with a glowing recommendation for In Five Years when it gets released this Spring.
So here ...more

Many thanks to Netgalley and Atria Books for the chance to read this novel early.
It's no secret I love mindbending books that play with the concept of time. As soon as I read the blurb for this one, I knew I would be bumping it to the top of my to be read list. I'm so glad I did because this book was very nearly perfect and not what I was expecting at all.
The blurb for In Five Years is a little misleading, but I'm actually glad it was. Oftentimes the blurbs ...more
This started well , it has a great premise and I was intrigued to see how this will go!I find it unique and brilliant and I was expected to find an emotional read but for me it wasn't!I still loved it and I find myself hooked but I didn't love it as much as I wannted!
This is about love and friendship, I have to say that the main heroine was ok for me, I couldn't connect with her so I couldn't empathise her either.
Overall, it was a great read if you are looking for something ...more
This is another book that you don't want to know too much about before you read it. It is a beautiful story of love, friendship, ...more

This book was fantastic. I would recommend not reading the book blurb right before reading this book. As it gives away a lot of the story IMO.
The narrator is Dannie (1st person POV). The story is set in NYC. She is a very ambitious lawyer. The story starts in December 2020 (and moves forward until we reach five years later).
There is romance in this book. However to me this was not the main focus of the ...more
