Goodreads Synopsis:

When they got in the lift, they were strangers.
Sasha, who is desperately trying to deliver a parcel; Hugo, who knows he's the best-looking guy in the lift and is eyeing up Velvet, who knows what that look means; Dawson, who used to be on TV, used to be handsome, and is sincerely hoping no one recognizes him; Kaitlyn, who's losing her sight but won't admit it; and Joe, who shouldn't be here at all, but who wants to be here the most.

And one more person, who will bring them together again on the same day every year.

Book Review:
Pre-reading Thoughts:

I am really excited for this book. I haven't heard much about this book but there has been a small buzz about it. I'm really intrigued to see where this book will go.

Thank you so much to Pan Macmillan South Africa for providing me with an ARC of this book! Just a small disclaimer for those reading this review. I have received this book for free. Please note that this does not affect my opinion in any way. All thoughts are my own.

Writing Thoughts:

This book has multiple points of views and if that isn't your thing that I highly recommend that you do not read this book as it has six. I think that the multiple perspectives were a genius idea when it came to this book. It added a lot of depth to the plot and helped to provide both background on the characters and some more insight into the plot.

Plot Thoughts:

I didn't quite get into the book because the plot was very slow. We had one huge event happen and if I am honest, this was the right book at the wrong time. I do think that this book will be super interesting but I don't really think that I am super interested in such a complex story right now. I really enjoyed how each perspective had a moment that tied in with both the previous one and the next one.

Character Thoughts:

We are introduced to six vastly different characters at the beginning of this book. I really liked how they were all different and flawed in very different ways. I definitely think that the characters will make this story and not the plot because it seems so character driven. 

Final Thoughts:

Overall, I think that this book has potential. I did DNF it but not because of a fault within the book but rather because I wasn't in the right mood to read it. I will definitely be revisiting this book as soon as I can. The multiple points of views add a lot of depth to the plot and the book itself seems as if it will be largely character driven. I'm definitely still intrigued to see how things progress from where I ended but I'll read it another time. Thank you so much to Pan Macmillan South Africa for providing me with a copy of this book.

Yours in Reading,
