Wonderful. Break-ups handled even more beautifully than the love story. #ATY2018 #summercatchup

Unique and interesting premise despite the booms of reality television. Entertaining enough that I wish I could have read it faster. #aroundtheyearin52books #ATY2018

Greet continuation of the series. It was a bit confusing at times but that‘s likely due to long interruptions in my reading. #aroundtheyear2018 #ATY2018 #uniqueformat

I wasn‘t too impressed with The Final Girls but Sager really found his footing with this one. Enjoyable thriller that had me guessing throughout. #aroundtheyearin52books #ATY2018

Although I loved the themes in the book and the ending was powerful, I really didn‘t like the author‘s writing all that much. It was a bit simplistic and even hard to follow at times, especially the dialogue. #aroundtheyearin52books #ATY2018 #womensprize

Thoroughly enjoyed the unique format and flew through the story. Excited to see where the trilogy goes #aroundtheyearin52books #ATY2018

I guessed the basic elements of the twist very early on but it was still interesting to see how exactly it unfolded. Good enough thriller. #aroundtheyearin52books #ATY2018 (Picture from a recent walk enjoying the beautiful fall colors)

And Then There Were None, literally...at least on this list for my #ATY2018 list.

Gezemice Wow, awesome! Congratulations! I award you an extra medal for ability to fit all that into one square picture. You rock! ❤️👍 1y

julesG Congratulations! 1y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Gezemice Nope, I fixed it though now...just so you don‘t have to squint through all that again, #48 one of the 7 Deadly Sins was supposed to be MacBeth, I corrected it in the photo now. (edited) 1y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Gezemice Thank you for catching that! 1y
Gezemice @Riveted_Reader_Melissa You are welcome. Great list! I had trouble with the 7 deadly sins, not sure how to attribute things... I think I used Othello... jealousy should be a deadly sin, but there is also anger and envy in there. 1y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @Gezemice Yes, that one would fit too. I went with MacBeth... lots of envy& lust, but definitely tons of Pride. Shakespeare did the sins very well in his plays. 1y
BarbaraBB Are you ready for ATY 2019? (edited) 14mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @BarbaraBB Not at all! LOL. 14mo
BarbaraBB I am going to try ATY for the first time... 😅😉 14mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @BarbaraBB This year was my first time, and it went pretty well, for most of the year I just read and fit in my books where I could. It wasn‘t until the end that I had to go looking it find something for the last few. 14mo

I‘m a sucker for CoHo. All the feels, per usual. It was frustrating how poor the communication was between the two characters but that also doesn‘t mean it‘s not realistic. Finished in less than a day. #aroundtheyearin52books #ATY2018

JHSiess Loved it. 1y

Perfect combination of character development, team dynamics, and historical sense of place. It‘s dense but the writing creates ease in reading #aroundtheyearin52books #ATY2018 #medicallegalthriller
