In Five Years is as clever as it is moving, the rare read-in-one-sitting novel you won’t forget.” —Chloe Benjamin, New York Times bestselling author of The Immortalists

Perfect for fans of Me Before You and One Day—a striking, powerful, and moving love story following an ambitious lawyer who experiences an astonishing vision that could change her life forever.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Dannie Kohan lives her life by the numbers.

She is nothing like her lifelong best friend—the wild, whimsical, believes-in-fate Bella. Her meticulous planning seems to have paid off after she nails the most important job interview of her career and accepts her boyfriend’s marriage proposal in one fell swoop, falling asleep completely content.

But when she awakens, she’s suddenly in a different apartment, with a different ring on her finger, and beside a very different man. Dannie spends one hour exactly five years in the future before she wakes again in her own home on the brink of midnight—but it is one hour she cannot shake. In Five Years is an unforgettable love story, but it is not the one you’re expecting.

  • I wish I hadn't read it, save your time.

    This book had some good ideas that never came together. The plot is so ill-placed that it ended as quickly as a bad sitcom that was canceled mid-season. One of the worst parts is that the entire story is from only the main character’s POV. Literally no one else. There’s a total of about twenty pages of dialogue from all the other characters combined. The love interests are at their core the same person, and they're both treated as disposable. Even the main character describes her best friend as a vapid hippie but implodes when they're separated. The plot and writing are painful because the book is peppered with erroneous name drops of different high-end clothing designers, tourist trap overpriced NYC restaurants, and parts of the city that have no bearing on the story. No character development, multiple changes in story direction for no reason, and a lack of a solid ending. I wish I hadn't paid for this book because I wouldn't even read it for free now or recommend it to anyone unless I dislike them.
  • Good read

    So many turns in the book and outcome is not what I expected. But then again it was what I expected after reading a few more chapters.

    The writing is well done. The author draws you in and you understand her feelings and thoughts throughout. The style is easy and natural. The story is unexpected and endearing.

    First book I have ever reviewed. This book is just awful. Bad writing. Bad premise. Put it in my trash can after about 40 pages.
