There aren't many books I dislike - because I always look for a recommendation of some kind, from lists, or my preference for an author or narrator etc. And it's an anathema to me that I disliked this book and I finished it – what good book did I miss out on as a result?!

In Five Years was well written and drew me along to the end, but wow, this was not your usual romance novel. I liked the twist at the end, and (spoiler alert) although it was wrapped up into a probable happy ending, as is the definition of a romance novel, there was something dodgy about this one.

The characters, Bella and the two male leads, were too perfect (is that another word for shallow here?), and who was Danny - very much a narrator and not someone who could "carry the movie", as she wasn't interesting. Yet I found Danny and David's relationship a curiosity, and Aaron of course - how perfect was he! so devoted. Yet did I know him? what made him tick? Even Dannie was opaque somehow.

Her relationship with Bella was the downer of the book. It was invasive and stifling. I know some of that grew out of the paranormal experience she had had, but geez. The novel was so intense around the illness, and around the relationship between the two women. Not a recipe for an enjoyable or even meaningful read! in my book, no pun intended. ( )

Would not recommend. The characters are all so uninteresting and shallow (so many brand name-drops, why?!). The conceit, a premonition of a new love, implies it is a romance but it isn't. The way the book dispatches with a major character through cancer, as though to obviate judgment of the main character's behavior, is extremely gross. ( )

Lots of nice descriptions of NYC, engaging (if not extremely likeable) characters. I appreciated the plot twist at the end where we find out that the pivotal scene at the beginning of the book was not what it seemed, and also the plot twist after the main plot twist with which the book ends. I just wasn't a fan about how the plot twist arrived...Bella deserved better. ( )

I feel a bit manipulated by this book. I definitely feel like it is marketed all wrong and I don't see it as a romance. I wish I had known more going in. If I had maybe I would have rated it higher or more likely I would have skipped it all together as it was super triggering for me and I had no warning whatsoever. If you are going to use a plot device like the one used in this book there should at least be a hint of it in the synopsis. ( )

Although Rebecca Serle did not intend IN FIVE YEARS to be a young adult novel, it still has a YA feel to it. The main characters, although adults in their late 20s, early 30s, refer to each other in YA terms (e.g., "best friends,” "besties"), and their circumstances almost always concern their love lives (also very YAish). That may put off some adult readers.

The real problem with this book is what, at first, seems like a good thing because it sparks your interest and draws you in.

Dannie has a dream that seems very real. Probably nothing will come of it, but maybe it was a premonition. So the entire book leads up to that particular day. And for the entire book you will be expecting an explanation of the dream/premonition. If it is a premonition, how and why did it happen?

That, alone, kept me interested in this story. Otherwise, IN FIVE YEARS is just a typical live-with-her-boyfriend-for-five-years-and-look-forward-to-marrying-him YA book. But there is that dream/premonition that sets it apart.

In the end, though, the story is unsatisfying. I still have questions and don’t feel like anything was explained. ( )

The future is the one thing you can count on not abandoning you, kid, he'd said. The future always finds you. Stand still, and it will find you. The way the land just has to run to sea.

Happiness.  The enemy of all suffering.
But the thing about parallel tracks is you can be inches apart, or miles.
We are like constellations passing each other, seeing each other's light but in the distance. It feels impossible how much space there can be in this intimacy, how much privacy. And I think that maybe that is what love is. Not the absence of space but the acknowledgment of it, the thing that lives between the parts, the thing that makes it possible not to be one, but to be different, to be two.
"You mistake love. You think it has to have a future in order to matter, but it doesn't. It's the only thing that does not need to become at all. It matters only insofar as it exists. Here. Now. Love doesn't require a future."
