If you go into this expecting a serious mystery, you're not going to be happy. SIRI, WHO AM I? is pure fluff.

I'd describe it as a cross between American Dreamer (1984), Legally Blonde (2001), and Memento (2000). The premise is basically this. An airhead wakes up in a hospital (no, that's not the introduction to an off-color joke), only to find that she's completely lost her memory. She's wearing a yellow Prada dress and the only possessions on her person are a rhinestone tiara and a matching bag containing a cracked cell phone and a Chanel lipstick. Using her cell phone, she's able to learn that her name is Mia and a whole bunch of people are really mad at her. She's not sure how she got the traumatic head injury that landed her in the hospital in the first place, but with so many people out to get her, it's starting to look like it might have been intentional. Mia's attempts to discover herself take her all over Southern California, from the beaches, to the local art scene, to hipster taco trucks, all the while trying to figure out who bonked her on the head-- and why. I loved Mia's voice. This book reminded me a lot of the Size 12 Is Not Fat series by Meg Cabot. The heroine is the perfect blend of snarky and vapid (hence the Elle Woods comparison), and she has a lot of really fun and on-point observations about the superficiality of Californian culture. Looking at some of the reviews, I suspect that maybe a lot of them aren't from California and therefore maybe didn't realize how accurate some of this satire actually is (very). I laughed my way through the first 200 pages because influencer culture really is ridiculous, and so are the Kardashians, and so are $12 burritos from a truck, and so is over-sharing on social media. How ridiculous is it that some of us over-share so much that it would allow us to double-back through our lives to figure out our street address and everything we did in the last week if we ever came down with retrograde amnesia? Speaking of retrograde amnesia, I love the psychology/neuroscience angle in this book. You see, Mia's unwilling partner-in-crime throughout all of this is a cute house-sitter named Max who works in a neuroscience lab. Max is basically like a black, male Ms. Frizzle with his geeky passion for science-themed t-shirts and the final frontier. Speaking as someone who majored in psychology, tutored (intro) neuroscience, and actually worked in a lab on experiments about deception (just like Max), this part of the book really spoke to me. I always love a good psychology angle in fiction. The second half of the book isn't quite as good as the first, which is why I think you need to suspend your disbelief. I personally thought it was a solid ending and even though it was kind of cheesy, it's the cinematic movie ending we all secretly want, even as our more intellectual sides might hang our heads. SIRI, WHO AM I? is just plain fun escapist fantasy and I recommend it to people who enjoy authors like Meg Cabot or Megan Angelo, and other authors of smart, brainy chick-lit. P.S. I've already done the mental casting for this movie. Jessie Usher is Max, Maddie Hasson is Mia, Sierra A. McClain is Crystal, and Johnathan Rhys Meyers is JP. Feel free to credit me as assistant casting director when the movie comes out. Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review!  4 to 4.5 stars

    I received an ARC of this book for free from the publisher (Quirk Books) in exchange for an honest review. I give this book 3.5 stars which rounds up to 4. I just want to start off by saying that you have to suspend your disbelief to fully enjoy this book. If you go into the book thinking it’s going to be super realistic, you’re not going to enjoy it. There are lot of things that are pretty unbelievable. So if you read this book, just follow Mia and just go with it. Don’t think too much about it.

Using social media to discover who she is so current and such a millennial thing to do. I loved following her on her quest to find out who the heck she is. The book had footnotes throughout and I found them to be a really cute touch. They added a lot of humor to the story. There’s a brief mention of Keanu Reeves on page 55 that I loved. Keanu Reeves is my favorite so any mention of him is a plus in my book. I was a little underwhelmed at the end. Once I found out what happened to Mia and who she was, I didn’t have any sort of reaction to it. I felt a little let down. There was a lot of build up, but ultimately it wasn’t as exciting as I thought it would be. Overall, if you are looking for something quick and light (and kind of ridiculous) to read, this book may be for you.

    'Siri, Who Am I?' tells the story of a young woman, Mia, who wakes up in hospital with short-term amnesia. With the help of Siri and a man called Max, Mia works her way through her old Instagram posts to piece together her life and work out who she is. As a woman in my late twenties, I was looking forward to reading this book. I expected a story that told the journey of the main character's self-realisation, in addition to humourous references to the life of millennials e.g. avocado on toast.

I expected a story that told the journey of the main character's self-realisation, in addition to humourous references to the life of millennials e.g. avocado on toast. However, I'm afraid that I really didn't enjoy the story at all. The plot seemed completely implausible right from the beginning (the hospital releases a patient who's had a knock to the head and admits that she doesn't know who she is or where she lives). The book seemed to rely on the played-out storyline of a woman waking up with amnesia and realising that something isn't right (I'm not against this storyline at all; I've just read books that have done it a lot better)! On top of that, the main character was obnoxious, not one of the characters has any common sense, and all of the males were quite pathetic in their desperation to please the main character. Finally, who doesn't enjoy a good Instagram filter? However, the amount of hashtags used throughout the book was #cringe. To summarise, the plot of 'Siri, Who Am I?' could have been interesting, but it failed to live up to my expectations. Note: I was provided a free copy of this book by Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. #siriwhoami #netgalley

    Our protagonist here doesn't begin her story with an existential crisis. It's actually a literal "Who am I?" identity crisis, when she wakes up in a Los Angeles hospital with a head injury and no idea of who she is. She remembers nothing about herself, not even her name, although she can rattle off without hesitation the names of all the Kardashians and knows intimate details of their lives.

It's actually a literal "Who am I?" identity crisis, when she wakes up in a Los Angeles hospital with a head injury and no idea of who she is. She remembers nothing about herself, not even her name, although she can rattle off without hesitation the names of all the Kardashians and knows intimate details of their lives. (Well, you know, "intimate" to everyone who watches their reality show.) All she knows is that she was wearing a beautiful yellow Prada cocktail dress with shoes and cape to match when she was brought to the hospital, has a Chanel lipstick with her, and has a top-of-the-line, state-of-the-art haircut (albeit, at the moment, a bit messy with blood in the hair and staples in the scalp). But, most important of all, her cracked i- phone was found in working condition after a needed charge. So, of course, she asks the expected question of it, "Siri, who am I?", and finds that she is Mia, last name unknown, has an Instagram account which shows her living the good life, and manages, after being discharged from the hospital, to find her way to a beautiful pink duplex owned by a French billionaire with whom she seems to have a very close romantic relationship. A billionaire who is, at the moment, out of the country, leaving his place in the care of Max, a handsome Ph.D in neuroscience with the habit of wearing T-shirts saying things like "It's not your limbic system, it's mine", who is housesitting to supplement his income. Well, yes, this is an absurd set-up. In the first place, Mia would not be released from the hospital in her present condition, and, in the second, how convenient is it that there's a kind, considerate Ph.D housesitter willing to help her out in her search for herself? But just go with the flow, people, because this is cute and funny and actually has a bit of a message about knowing yourself (4realz). The more Mia learns about herself, the less she actually likes. And then there's also the possibility that the injury that put her in the hospital was the result of attempted murder. This is an entertaining, easy-breezy read, part mystery, part rom-com, part social commentary. At first Mia seems to be as "air-headed" as any of the Kardashians but then there will be an existential crisis for her and an interesting learning curve. The read has some superficially insightful commentary on our social media oriented culture of today. Like the addiction to selfies, when Max says, "All you do is take pictures of yourself," and Mia replies, "...Not taking pictures of yourself doesn't make you better than me," receiving the reply, "Ummm, it might." And the addiction to Instagram. "You can be anyone you want online. There's a filter for any look...any mood..." So there's no need to be real, in other words. And there's a fun put-down of hashtags, as in this moment when a friend says, "Ohmygod. That's like hashtag the worst", a comment that Mia internally critiques as "That's like hashtag the dumbest sentence I've ever heard." This is definitely chick lit but it's fun and has a few moments of self-reflection about who you are, is your real self enough or do you need an Instagram self to feel self worth, and so forth. It was entertaining to follow Mia along in her quest to recover her identity and her decision to make some changes in that old identity. I enjoyed it, 4realz. (I also confess to liking the author's last name. Who wouldn't like a name that's pronounced "Cheetah"?)

    Siri, Who Am I? is a debut book for this author. This book is a bit difficult for me to rate. I think that the title, cover and premise are really great. And I found the beginning really intriguing. But then the book leveled off a bit for me. The book is about a woman who wakes up in the hospital with amnesia. She doesn't even know her name. So she has to use clues (some from her phone) to try to put the pieces of her life back together. The narrator is Mia (1st person POV).

I'm not exactly sure what genre I would classify this book as. But probably some combination of Women's Fiction, Chick Lit and Romantic Comedy. But there is also a bit of a mystery aspect. I was definitely curious to find out how Mia ended up in the hospital. There are two male leads: rich guy JP and house sitter Max. As the story progressed we learn a lot about Mia's life. I liked the idea of her learning about her life. But I got a bit bored in the middle. The book was funny. The romance aspect was decent. And I enjoyed how social media played such a key role in the book. This was a quick easy read. And there were definitely things I enjoyed. But overall it's probably 3 stars for me. Thanks to edelweiss and Quirk books for allowing me to read this book.

Also there can be such a thing as too many hashtag's mentions. Not for me.

    This is a story about Mia who wakes up in the hospital with no memory of her past. The whole concept was interesting but I didn't like characters at all an couldn't relate with them. I was also disappointed with the ending. Thank you to NetGalley and publisher for providing me copy of the book in exchange for honest review.

    There is this Gen X and Bommer obsession with millennials-isms. Smartphones, Kardashians, and quinoa- the caricature of the modern millennial seems like it's always the same brand of vapid.

Good job, you really had something to say about modern pop culture. While Siri, Who Am I isn't a complete and direct example of an out of touch person trying to break down the walls of millennial consumerism (taking a much lighter tone) even the title is cringy at best, reflecting that classic millennial strawman. Theres a lot of pop culture dropping in this book. A lot of it. Its saving grace is that it's light-hearted and an easy read. If you are already on board with the premise of knocking a millennial Paris Hilton down a peg and can suspend disbelief, this is Meg Cabot style readable and can absolutely be fun- but if you are tired of Kardashian jokes, i'd skip it.

It looks as though the release has now been pushed back until January 2021, which is why this seems to be such an early review. DNF at 60%.

    Siri, Who Am I? is marketed as “Memento gets a millennial makeover,” and while not a perfect parallel, it is an apt description for this fun contemporary read. “Memories change over time. Some fade. Some become stronger. Everyone has different memories of the same event. Memory is just a story we tell ourselves, not an objective truth. That’s why your sense of self, which is dependent on memory, is something that fluctuates and changes.” This starts with a young woman waking up in a hospital not Siri, Who Am I? is marketed as “Memento gets a millennial makeover,” and while not a perfect parallel, it is an apt description for this fun contemporary read. “Memories change over time. Some fade. Some become stronger. Everyone has different memories of the same event. Memory is just a story we tell ourselves, not an objective truth. That’s why your sense of self, which is dependent on memory, is something that fluctuates and changes.” This starts with a young woman waking up in a hospital not able to remember anything about herself. Thankfully, she does have her iPhone. It is able to tell her her name (Mia) and she decides to mine it for information about her life. Using her Instagram detective skills, Mia finds her way to what she believes is her house. And so her adventure to rediscover herself begins. Much of this book focuses on Mia’s road to discover herself, but this is also a rom com, love triangle and all. Many of the tropes you would expect to see grace these pages, and they are handled well. The plot moves at a quick clip for fast and easy reading. And the writing is strong, with a clear, snarky voice. The only place it fell slightly flat in was the characters. Although Mia is nicely developed, many of the rest were stereotypical. If you’re looking for a full cast of fully fleshed out characters, you won’t find it here. But I can’t say that I minded much. Although a storyline beginning with a main character with amnesia is nothing new, Siri, Who Am I? offers a fresh perspective. It explores our society’s reliance on social media and the results of living our lives filtered through its lens. As Mia’s attempts to piece together her past by going back to places from her Instagram feed, the differences between her perfect photographs and the reality she discovers unfold slowly but surely. “Fairy tales only exist if you keep your rose-colored glasses on…” In the end, Siri, Who Am I? was a fresh and fun palette cleanser with some depth. I’m certainly impressed with this debut and look forward to see what she does next. *Thanks to the publisher for providing an arc of this edition via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    I think I can make this short, the more you read the less you like the heroine IMHO and by the end she is trying to do something with her life and makes some really stupid decisions that only work in a fairy tale world.

So I gave it 4 Stars and then decided that was too high a rating for this book so I reduced it to 3, maybe it was 3.5 and I rounded down but I felt that the guy who had really shown her love got the shaft in this story that falls squarely into the "this really could have been a much better story with a bit of effort" category So 3 Stars

    This book was a fun ride! I enjoy any book with a memory loss trope at the center, and this one was no different. It got 3.5/5 stars from me! Here's what I enjoyed about this book: 1. I loved the slow uncovering of who our MC was. We had some level of suspense right up until the very end! 2. I really enjoyed our main supporting character, Max. He was compassionate, supportive, and genuine. 3. I loved that it turned into a "self discovery" of sorts, as Mia learns who she was and who she wants to be. This book was a fun ride!

While she wanted to change the trajectory of her life, she continued to lie and manipulate people. 2. The ending lacked luster for me while also being completely unbelievable. After basically nothing going right for her for the entire book, it's as though everything was wrapped up in a pretty bow by the end. In conclusion, I will absolutely read more by Tschida - but I don't think I would read another book featuring Mia!

That's why I feel sad and find these reviews fake, even if the people writing them haven't even realized that themselves. Just, do us all a favor and keep your opinion to yourselves if you can't be objective enough to offer useful reviews on this site.

    Honestly, I finished this book with the biggest smile on my face. When I began reading it, I thought it was a little too superficial. Little did I know, that superficiality was the point! Instead, I ended up with a book that was a little bit silly, a whole lot of sweet, and that actually had something good to say. The book was full of surprises, had a completely to-die-for romance, and was just a 'feel good' kind of read. A fluffy, marshmallow read with heart, heels, and Pedro. Poor Pedro.

The story revolves around Mia after she clearly got knocked over the head by someone. She wakes up in the hospital from a coma not even knowing her own name... let alone who did this to her. Mysteries are always fun to read. Mia progresses throughout the book trying to put the pieces together to learn who she is and why someone would want to kill her. Nothing is what it seems in this book. The first half of the book was very strong. About halfway through the book, I honestly became a little bored. It started to become predictable. Mia's voice became a little annoying to me. Instead of caring about the outcome of her fate, I didn't really care what would end up happening. The romance in the book fell very flat to me. The book became kind of predictable. I was hoping for a surprising ending and outcome but it wasn't. I did adore the author's writing style. Tschida did have a beautiful way of describing her characters and story. The plot just didn't do it for me. I think with more experience her other books will continue to get better. Why did there have to be so many hashtags in this book? They were dumb and some of them were totally unnecessary. I did like the idea of a social media-based mystery. How Mia could essentially come across as anyone she wanted to be. That anyone can have a fresh start. Using an iPhone to uncover who you are is a unique concept. More mysteries should use social media tactics. The pacing of the story was very well executed. However, there needed to be more plot twists to keep me intrigued. The beginning was better. Siri, Who Am I? was an easy fast read. I am excited to see what Tschida decides to write next. Anyone who likes an easy read should pick this one up. It turned out to pretty average for me. However, I can see some people really loving this book. Parts were cute and lighthearted. The characters needed more depth but all in all, this was a relatable book to this generation. Some things were a little unrealistic but still a good story and concept.

    I was intrigued when I read what this book because I am far from a millennial, I passed it by at first but I kept thinking about it so I went and downloaded it. It was exciting reading the book because you could never guess if it was actually who Mia was or if she was just guessing.

The author made the story exciting and even though the story was about a Millenial and using social media to find herself, I could follow along too. I think that was another reason I liked it so much because it was nice reading about the younger generation.l Getting amnesia could surely happen and yes, they would probably use social media to find out who they were. It seemed like using Instagram, Mia didn't tell the whole story so it made it harder to figure out who she was. Whether you're millennial or old like me, the book is going to make you stop and think about things. It had wonderful characters and took you all over the world. From the very rich to the poorer places. We were on yachts to visiting stripping clubs. I would recommend this book to anyone. Millennials do live a different lifestyle and it was nice being a part of that generation in this book. I received an ARC from NetGalley for an honest review. I loved where this book took me and all that I learned so I would recommend it for anyone.

Sorry for the super early review 🤷🏻‍♀️😩

    Siri, Who Am I? is a rom-com starring a 20-something woman with a case of amnesia. After waking up from a coma, Mia doesn't remember anything about her own life except what she can learn from her phone. She learns her own name after asking Siri who she is. Her wallet is missing, she's wearing a yellow Prada dress and has a cool haircut. She assumes she is rich because of all of this evidence. She is seemingly all alone. No one has shown up at the hospital to visit or release her. The hospital ju Siri, Who Am I? is a rom-com starring a 20-something woman with a case of amnesia.

Her wallet is missing, she's wearing a yellow Prada dress and has a cool haircut. She assumes she is rich because of all of this evidence. She is seemingly all alone. No one has shown up at the hospital to visit or release her. The hospital just lets her out and she uses her instagram feed to figure out where she lives. She winds up at a nice duplex on Ocean Boulevard in Laguna Beach. There is a house sitter, Max, there and he tells her the house belongs to a rich chocolatier. Max and Mia work together to try to figure out exactly who Mia is. Okay, this was kind of fun. It was definitely a quick and easy read. I had to really suspend disbelief that the hospital would release a patient who didn't remember who they were out into the wild and that they wouldn't get the police or social workers or someone involved. Also, based on WHERE she received her head injury, you would think someone there would've supplied her identifying information when they brought her to the hospital. OK, i need to stop overanalyzing this. If you suspend disbelief about all that stuff, it is an entertaining read as you follow Mia along on all her foibles and her resolution to make herself a better person when she uncovers things she doesn't like about her previous life.

    This book was just pure fun! Imagine waking up in the hospital after an accident and having to use Siri to tell you what your name is and having to use your Instagram app to help you piece together your life, especially when the phone number for the person listed as Mom has been disconnected. This was a fun and addicting story that I read in a day. I look forward to more books by this author. I thank Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book.

'Siri, Who Am I?' was definitely something I wouldn't usually pick up, but I'm happy I did. It was entertaining and completely unrealistic, but I had fun reading it. Siri, Who Am I? is about a girl named Mia who wakes up from a coma with amnesia. We get to find out who she is right along with her. Isn't that fun? It is pretty funny. All Mia has with her is a yellow Prada dress, a sparkly clutch, two keys to who knows where and a cracked screen, cell phone. Her nurse suggests she find out who she is by looking on that. What Mia finds out is that her name is Mia and she has no one in her life that she trusts. No family or friends. What she does know is that she has a following on Instagram and she is prepared to Nancy Drew the shit out of the situation. First stop, home...or to the house in a pic she thinks could be her home. When she arrives one of the two keys in her clutch actually goes to the door, soooo that must mean this is her house, except....a very cute black guy is sitting in the kitchen. Could this be her boyfriend? Husband? Max introduces himself as the house sitter and before he can ask too many questions Mia heads off to go take a nap. Head injuries are exhausting. First of all, I can say that this book is completely batshit crazy and unrealistic. I mean who lets a person with amnesia and no friends, family or money even, just leave a hospital without some kind of adult protection service? That is one of the questions Max asks Mia when she wakes up. She explains that she is going to piece everything about her life from her Instagram and strangely he is up for it. To help her that is. Mia has some crazy adventures around the L.A. area the next 5 days and slowly figures out she doesn't like the "old Mia", she much prefers the honest "new Mia". She learns over chance encounters over the next few days who she really is or was, and she tries to rectify her bad ways. It's definitely not an over night thing, but she's willing to work on it. This story could totally be a movie. I don't really watch rom-coms, but this totally is that kind of chick lit book that you can indulge an afternoon in or a relaxing weekend. Giving this contemporary amnesia romance a 3.5 roses.

    Suspension of disbelief is extremely necessary for this one. Maybe even expelling it altogether? The convoluted story of Mia's memory loss made absolutely no logical sense and she was often pretty grating as a character. I was along for the ride at first but as the mystery of her identity just kept dragging on I rapidly lost patience. The California Instagram influencer culture satire is strong, and I think the author came very close to making an excellent point about image and truth and being k Suspension of disbelief is extremely necessary for this one.

    I rarely LOL at books, but I did for this one. Don’t get me wrong, this book isn’t profound in the least. But the characters and story are so enjoyable and it goes so fast. I got my ARC at ALA Midwinter so this is a millennial librarian who read this of her own volition instead of relinquishing it to the dusty, bottom shelf of the staff room. I read anything and everything Quirk puts out.

    This was a light read, a witty and fun contemporary version of the amnesia trope. When a young woman wakes up in the hospital with no memory of her own life following a head injury, all she has is Siri and her Instagram feed to go by. Her carefully curated social media presence turns out to be just that, so she has to decide which version of herself she really wants to be.

For one young woman, things are about to get a lot more complicated as she doesn't remember who she is or how she got there. Siri, Who Am I, was fresh, brutally honest, and raw! This novel was what rom-com dreams are made of; a funky and infectious story about an amnesiac, sorting through the random puzzle pieces of her social media life to find her true self, beneath all the glitzy and glamorous Instagram photos. I honestly felt like if I was playing a chaotic game of "Find the Mia" which consisted of the most random series of events that should be totally bizarre but makes perfect sense! It takes a very special mind to come up with half the smack talk in this book, so hats off to the author for penning this engaging and dynamic story. The MC's narrative was over-the-top hilarious while still being highly relatable with her skillfully sarcastic retorts and larger-than-life personality. The only thing funnier than her witty monologue was Max- the sweet neuroscientist who was " a genius intellectually and a basic bro emotionally." There was a surprising depth to this novel that elevated it from a regular chick-lit to something very intellectually and emotionally fulfilling. I relished the references to social media being used as a medium to reinvent/paint a prettier picture of your lifestyle. The relevance, especially within our current social media-crazed society where merit is based on the number of likes/comments/follows was germane. Siri, Who Am I, provides an essential reality check about the dangers of social media- not everything you see is real. "Is there power in choosing to be fake?" The revelations being unraveled the further we delve into the book shocked me to my core and forced me to reassess how I perceive events. The author makes constant referrals to memory, or rather one's ability to recall events and how your perception can cloud your judgment. "Maybe the truth is like memory-shifting depending on the perspective." "Memories change over time, Everyone has different memories of the same event. Memory is just a story we tell ourselves, not an objective truth." Also, I want to applaud the author for including my humble little island of Trinidad and Tobago- we really do have some of the best cocoa beans in the world. While I thoroughly enjoyed the overall book, some things detracted from my reading experience. Max was written as such a sweet and innocent guy and I honestly saw no merit or value to the overall story by the constant references to his skin tone or the fact that he's "black". I fell in love with Max's naivety and down-to-earth personality and could honestly give two hoots what color his skin was. This incessant need to reinforce his "black skin and being a person of color" was, in my humble opinion, unnecessary, purely because this approach was not taken with any of the other characters. Another aspect that was challenging was the writing style, specifically, the use of footnotes. I like an inside joke/tidbit as much as the next person but I did not enjoy constantly flipping through the chapter trying to place a footnote that was 15 pages before. Eventually, I just ignored them altogether which I regret as I am sure it would have added great comedic value to the story. Besides these minor peeves, I believe Siri, Who Am I, was an excellent spin on the memory loss trope without being cheesy or cliche. It was a quirky, light story of self-discovery, loving the skin you're in, and being real! Thank you to the author Quirk Books and NetGalley for providing me with an arc of this book.

Sometimes all that glitters isn’t gold and Instagram pictures don’t display overdrawn accounts, angry relationships and business woes. Siri,Who am I will be favorite for woman’s fiction in 2020 and I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to read it ahead of the release date. A sincere thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
