I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Siri, Who Am I? is an amnesia trope mystery with a side of romance.
About Siri, Who Am I?
Mia wakes up in a hospital, not knowing who she is or how got there. Her purse has no ID, just a phone and a couple of keys.
Using her phone, she for clues about her identity. Siri tells her that her name is Mia. Her haircut (minus the staples from her head wound) is trendy, her dress is Prada – is she rich?
More sleuthing sends her to a gorgeous home. Does it belong to her? Or maybe the gorgeous man posing with her on Instagram. She discovers Max, a neuroscientist, housesitting for the owner, a wealthy French man- the hottie from the photos.
Max agrees to help her figure out the rest – like her last name, what’s her relationship to the French hottie, where does she work. And most importantly, how did she end up in the hospital? Was someone trying to kill her?
My thoughts about Siri, Who Am I?
This feels spot-on for our current Instgram-or-it-didn’t-happen reality. Very reflective of how we curate our reality.
Mia’s constant inner monologue is #hilarious. And her search for her identity is one madcap scene after another,
Such a fast, entertaining read that really drew me in as Mia slowly puts the pieces together, discovering who she is and how she ended up with a head injury. Mia doesn’t just discover her identity, she also finds out who she wants to be.
While I saw some of the twists coming, and I think you will too, I still found this totally fun.
Some reviewers were turned by by Mia’s frank attitudes about sex workers and thought that a book billed as a “fun read” shouldn’t include serious subjects. What do you think? Tell me in the comments below.
I thought the author handled things in keeping with the tone of the rest of the book and Mia’s character.
If you enjoy zany, try A Bad Day for Sunshine by Darynda Jones. This book and her previous mystery series, the Grave books are full of zany and madcap adventures but also have hard subjects like abuse. Read my complete review of A Bad Day for Sunshine.
The Marriage Game by Sara Desai is populated with zany secondary characters straight out of a screwball comedy romance. Read my full review.
