Samantha Watkins by Aurelie Venem

Samantha Watkins (Chronicles of an Extraordinary Ordinary Life, #1)Samantha Watkins by Aurélie Venem
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

**I received an ebook from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

This book was a terrific read even though it took a little bit for me to get "into" the story. The writing style is quite a bit different from my typical reads, but that was refreshing.

This is the story of Sam - a quiet, fairly insular woman - who loses everything and in the process gains a whole new world. On the way home from her mundane job as a librarian she comes across something she was never meant to see, and in one fell swoop her whole world changes. Unable to return to her former life or risk death she must become a stronger, more confident version of herself.

It is well-told from Sam's point of view with plenty of detail and sub-plots as well as the main story to increase the reader's involvement in the storyline. I would love to read the next installment to see if the author manages to keep up the quality of the plot.
