Review: Beside Myself by Ann Morgan

* Copy courtesy of NetGalley *

I'm a sucker for a book about twins, and my expectations for an enjoyable read were blown completely out of the water by Ann Morgan in Beside Myself.

Twin sisters Helen (bossy) and Ellie (submissive) play a game one afternoon to swap identities, but Ellie won't change back. What happens next is an ever growing divide between sisters and fascinating process of character development and decline.

Beside Myself is a suspenseful read and an interesting look at identity and mental illness. I couldn't help but wonder what I would have done in Helen's situation.

Beside Myself by Ann Morgan is my favourite book of 2016 so far, although I'm not sure if it can stay at the top for the entire year, let's see.

Would you like to comment?

  1. I enjoyed this one as well!!! Review scheduled for a couple of day's time!

  2. Thanks Deb, I loved it. I found the formatting of the NetGalley very hard to read though and passed this on to the publisher. Hopefully that was just the ARC though. You might need to post in NG soon though, I saw the book was going to be archived off my shelf in 3 days time.

  3. Ever since I saw this book I've wanted to read it. I'm so glad it lives up to the expectations, I'll definitely have to grab a copy!

  4. I hope you do Amy, it actually exceeded my expectations so I hope you pick up a copy.
