Mini Review | My (extra)Ordinary Life by Rebecca Ryan

⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5 Light, easy read with an engaging protagonist that also manages to sweetly tackle the subject of unprocessed grief.

Format: Kindle

Read: April 2023

I got this one a whim when it was on Kindle deal for 99p and I really enjoyed it! Stayed up too late reading it several times which is always a good sign.

It’s quite a light and easy read despite dealing with difficult topics like unprocessed grief and depression. The protagonist is engaging and relatable, and while certainty a little “quirky” at times she never crossed over into annoying. That’s a fine line to walk with me!

The author must have some experience working in secondary schools from the description and frustrations that Emily has as a teacher. It did take me back to my stint as a School Librarian!

The plot is wholly predictable but I think that is the point as Emily learns what truly makes a life worth living as she works through her guilt and grief over being the “boring” twin that survived.

I’ve read a few books lately with similar themes (The Midnight Library and The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue) and I enjoyed this one the most by quite a stretch because it keeps things simple, and doesn’t get distracted dressing things up in fantasy concepts.

This was a super solid 4 stars for me – loved it but I just didn’t have my life changed!

My (extra)Ordinary Life on Amazon. (Still 99p as of July 2023)
