Would your life be any different if one afternoon you chose to have lunch at Le Peep instead of Emerson’s Ale House? Or what if you chose to take Rand road to get to Randhurst Village instead of Main Street? You may never know the impact of these seemingly small daily decisions like these, unless you’re a character in Blake Crouch’s Dark Matter or Leigh Himes’ The One That Got Away.

Dark Matter follows Chicago physicist Jason as he is suddenly thrown into an epic adventure he never knew was even possible, while Abbey gets a chance to find out what life would have been like if she had chosen to be with a different man in The One That Got Away. Even though both books are very different, Dark Matter is a twisty novel that will screw with your mind and The One That Got Away is a heartfelt comedy of errors, they both deal with family, love, self-identity, and the what if.

Which book will you choose to read? Will it change the rest of your life? There is only one way to find out…
