First off! My apologies – I somehow managed to completely miss my slot!
I did manage to snag an eARC of The Rearranged Life of Oona Lockhart via NetGalley but it was badly formatted so I popped it to one side. Reading is my happy place. And as such I can be quite particular and picky. So I opted to use my much loved audible credit for a copy of the book instead, because the reviews so far have been fabulous.
And it starts off really well! I’m only an hour or so into the audiobook and it is good! Very good. Totally different to what I’ve read lately. And the narrator is FAB.
I am sure a full review will follow on my blog at some point in the near future.
But in the meantime check out these fab reviews –
If you haven’t heard of the book, it sounds amazing. Amazing!
Don’t take my word for it have a read of the blurb below.
What would you do if you woke up thirty years older than you were yesterday?
Brooklyn, 1982. Oona Lockhart and her boyfriend are about to ring in the New Year and Oona’s 19th birthday. But seconds after the New Year begins, Oona is torn from her life and everyone she loves, finding herself in her fifty-one year old body thirty-three years into the future. The life she had is gone, and all she is a letter from herself from the previous year to guide her.
Each year on the stroke of midnight she finds herself resurfacing in a different year of her own adulthood. Still a young woman on the inside, but ever changing on the outside, who will she be next year? Wealthy philanthropist? Club kid? World traveller? Wife to a man she’s never met?
The Rearranged Life of Oona Lockhart is an uplifting joyride through an ever-changing world that shows us what it means to accept your fate and truly live in the moment.
