This weeks book is:
If You Could See Me Now by Keris Stainton
To be honest, the first word that pops into my head from reading this book is ‘stupid’ and ‘short’. I wasn’t expecting a ‘fantasy’ twist in this, if you could call it that. And it just went downhill from there for me.
I’m going to warn you now, this MAY include spoilers, so if you don’t want to read any please stop reading!
The book is based around the main character, Izzy and her life with her boyfriend who has been ignoring her, and her work/home life. She is unhappy and decides to go out for a girls night with her best friend, Tash. They both get very drunk. Something crazy happens the next morning, and it’s not just the horrible hangover, Izzy has woken up totally invisible. Her life totally changes because of this.
She ends up dumping her boyfriend, without him knowing that she is invisible, and also tries for a promotion at her work. She gets to work with the new guy, Alex, who she has a bit of a crush on.
Suddenly her best friend has her heart broken, the promotion is turning out to be way more complicated and Alex is keeping secrets…
It was great that this was an easy read book. It is a breath of fresh air between reading intense crime/thriller’s. I just thought this book was really stupid, and it never explained how or why she turned invisible which really annoyed me. This book was also quite short and I finished it fairly quickly.
This book comes into the genres of romance, adults, women’s fiction and contemporary. If you’re into things happening in books that aren’t explained, then this is the one for you.
I rate this one a 4/10
I was really let down. ‘Book of the Week’ posts aren’t always positive ones, but the majority of them are which is what I hope for!
Thank you for reading, I hope I didn’t spoil it too much.
