I’ve always loved the idea of parallel universes, and so I loved the idea of The Two Lives of Lydia Bird. While technically this could be classified as a romance, it is more about a woman who puts her life back together after the death of her fiancee.
I really liked Lydia, and I especially liked seeing her grow and seeing her realize she was growing. I liked the idea that Lydia’s sleep world with her fiancee wasn’t perfect. No life is perfect and while perhaps one bad thing isn’t happening doesn’t mean other bad things won’t.
Was this book a little predictable, yes. But that didn’t bother me. This is a book where the ending doesn’t matter as much as the journey. That isn’t to say I didn’t like the ending, but it wasn’t as important as the rest of the story.
I really enjoyed this book. It was well written and an enjoyable read.
