Siri, Who Am I? by Sam Tschida

This book was oddly fun to read. And I feel like the cover is both fitting and not at the same time? 😂 But then again, this book is also really unique. It’s both a comedy and a mystery at the same time and I’m not gonna lie—I’m kind of digging it 👀 It was 100% a rom-com, but it had a lot of mystery thrown into it too (what else would you expect from a main character who lost all her past memories? 😂), which was super fun!

There were several points in the book where I got hit with unexpected plot twists and out loud, just stopped and went “WHAT?” 😧 I don’t know what it was about the book, but I was not expecting plot twists and then some jumped out at me and I was pleasantly surprised by them 😂 And that likely had to do with the whole mystery factor. I love how the fact that she has no memory of her past means that the reader doesn’t either and it keeps us guessing at the same time as her!

Something I also found that was new but that worked well for this book was the use of FOOTNOTES! At first, I found them kind of weird, but they fit well into the contexts and the story so I got used to them until it felt completely normal having them there 🙊 (They were short—usually only a few words—and only showed up every few pages!)

The only real issue I had with this book was the pacing? Not so much that it felt rushed or too slow (because I didn’t really have any issues with that) but that the timeline felt too short?? It all took place over the course of a week (give or take a few days) and a lot happened in that time that felt like it should’ve happened over a slightly longer time period. I don’t want to spoil anything, but all I’m going to say is that the relationship did not feel very convincing by the end of the book 😂

On that same note, I’m not sure I really liked the romance in this book?? I didn’t hate it, but it just felt like it was more of entertainment than something that makes you feel all giddy and warm. It felt like the romance was more on the side than a focal point 🙊 Her love-life was a spectacular mess, which was seriously entertaining, but I didn’t really think of it as romantic. It leaned more towards just being a comedy, for me.
