The Other Me by Sarah Zachrich Jeng


I went back to school this week as a high school teacher. Talk about a perfect time to read new books for a little escape 😉

Thank you Berkley for my gifted ebook in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis: Her birthday should be like any other night. One minute Kelly’s a free-spirited artist in Chicago going to her best friend’s art show. The next, she opens a door and mysteriously emerges in her Michigan hometown. Suddenly her life is unrecognizable: She’s got twelve years of the wrong memories in her head and she’s married to Eric, a man she barely knew in high school. Racing to get back to her old life, Kelly’s search leads only to more questions. In this life, she loves Eric and wants to trust him, but everything she discovers about him—including a connection to a mysterious tech startup—tells her she shouldn’t. And strange things keep happening. The tattoos she had when she was an artist briefly reappear on her skin, she remembers fights with Eric that he says never happened, and her relationships with loved ones both new and familiar seem to change without warning. But the closer Kelly gets to putting the pieces together, the more her reality seems to shift. And if she can’t figure out what happened on her birthday, the next change could cost her everything… 

First of all, can we talk about how gorgeous the cover is?! This was a debut book for this author, and I am really impressed at her writing skills. I think this author has some really great potential! I really enjoyed how original the story-line was. I loved the technological spin on the plot as it’s something that really captivates my mind in this generation. Despite being a unique story, I could still guess the ending of the book. I will chalk that up to the fact that I read quite a lot of suspenseful novels. It’s a bit of a slow burn, but I’m really glad I got a chance to read this one!

3.5/5 Stars
