5.0 out of 5 stars It's a TJR romance, what's not to love?
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 13, 2021
Maybe in Another Life is a heart-breaking but honest portrayal of true love, friendship, and most importantly: choices. It’s the perfect read for fans of multiverses, what ifs, and cinnamon rolls.

Hannah is 29 years old and feels lost in life. Although she has bounced from city to city, she's still trying to figure out where “home” is. After moving back to Los Angeles from New York, Hannah bumps into her high school sweetheart, Ethan, and at midnight she's is presented with two options: go home with her best friend, Gabby, or get a ride with Ethan later. The narrative then plays out in two timelines, with Hannah in the middle of both.

Taylor Jenkins Reid has a spot on my auto-buy author list, and every time I read another one of her books, it solidifies her place as an all-time favourite. Her writing carries a wealth of depth and emotion to sweep you into the lives of her relatable protagonists. Hannah is a wonderful narrator for Maybe in Another Life. She’s a bit of a hot mess (who isn’t?), carries burdens from her past, and is still trying to work out what the future holds.

Maybe in Another Life is a satisfying read. Not just for the romance, but for the characters and dialogue. In both timelines, there’s the prospect of romance. I really expected to like one more than the other, but I found both to be well-developed with lovable personalities. But the real highlight of Maybe in Another Life is Hannah’s friendship with Gabby. The romance is cute, but the relationship between the best friends is a delight. Their support for one another, their unbreakable bond, and the genuine appreciation they show is heart-warming.

The book reminded me a lot of Sliding Doors (1998). It pushes the reader to start thinking about possibilities or alternative realities while highlighting the importance of appreciating the journey too. The primary theme is fate, responsibility, and finding happiness as it reminds us there are no real mistakes, just different paths. I love that it didn’t really matter which timeline led to the “real” happily ever after. Despite the difference in the parallel lives, Hannah’s realisations are the same.

I felt the ending could be stronger and the pace dipped occasionally, but I love the story regardless. It’s a book that is classically TJR, witty, comforting, and authentic. And its message is unforgettably charming to read.
