2023 Book Review: Some of it was Real

Some of it was Real by Nan Fischer

A Contemporary, 2021 by Berkley, 304 Pages 

What I Didn’t Like:

  • I never like opening stories with the “getting ready” scene. But I will say it’s one short chapter and chapter 2 more than makes up for it.
  • There are some grammatical errors here. Not enough to pull me out of the story but enough to make me pause and figure out what the author meant. 
  • I wanted a tiny bit more justice at the end. That’s all I’m saying (no spoilers). 

What I Did Like:

  • LOVE the premise. I adore books with psychics. I just love the idea of being able to see things other people can’t and what the characters will do with that. 
  • Ending. I LOVE the ending. It leaves enough to the imagination to keep me thinking of these characters for a long time. It’s beautiful. 
  • The characters are wonderful. They have different voices, which makes it easy to keep them straight when reading their chapters and their dynamic works! 
  • The mystery surrounding Sylvie’s past is awesome. I was engrossed in the journey right along with her. 

Who Should Read This One:

  • Psychic story fans. At its roots this is a story about a psychic-medium being questioned on the genuine nature of her talent and it’s well done.
  • Romance fans, specifically enemies to lovers fans. Although, be warned, this isn’t a typical romance which means we aren’t bound by the “rules” of romance.
  • Mystery fans. If you like unraveling buried truths, this story delivers! 

My Rating: 5 Stars

  • With so much to love, this will appeal to a huge variety of readers!
