Such a fun read! Sort of a combination between Knives Out, Alice in Wonderland, and one of those stories where you find out you‘re really a princess or a king lost relative leaves you their fortune. Super enjoyable, can‘t wait for my hold on book 2 to come in from the library.

Great series to kick-start the year with, and get in the mood for some serious reading(eventually). All three parts have some brain-wracking puzzles and mind-games. Although the plot remains more or less the same, the thrill remains. 5/5.

The Inheritance Games | Jennifer Lynn Barnes

The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes seems somewhat similar to the movie Knives Out. The book begins with the main character, Avery Grambs, inheriting billions of dollars from someone whom she doesn't even know. The only catch is that she has to remain at the Hawthorne estate for one year with all four of the Hawthorne heirs. Each of the heirs have different opinions of Avery and are suspicious of her but some view her as a puzzle.

Avery is a normal 16-year old until she finds out that she is the mystery inheritor of 47 billion dollars. The catch? She doesn't know the man that has given her the money and there is a stipulation that she must live in his sprawling, maze of a house for a year or forfeit the money. If you like books with mind puzzles, you will like this book. A theme in the novel is the power of family, and this can be seen in the multiple family dynamics.

4 ⭐This was a fun, mysterious semi-crazy read. It is very reminiscent of the Westing Game but adapted for a more mature audience. We have a girl, Avery who lives with her sister, and they are barely scraping by. Avery hustles poker in order to make sure her favorite homeless man gets breakfast, she sleeps in the car when her sister‘s boyfriend insists he must be with in the apartment, and she just found out that a man in a slick suit has been

LibrarianRyan hunting for her. It turns out that Avery is needed in Texas to bear witness to the reading of a Will that will leave her set for life if she can survive in the Hawthorne house for a year. This isn‘t a haunted house but it‘s a house full of games and mysteries and hidden staircases, it‘s also full of a disinherited family that isn‘t exactly happy that some stranger got their billions. This book is both mystery and game. It‘s got a tad bit of 2mo
LibrarianRyan intrigue and a little bit of danger. It just works. It is a super-fast read that while it doesn‘t end on a cliffhanger it still ends with unanswered questions. So, my current favorite thing is that all three books are all out now, so I can continue this series. 2mo

Calling all #nancydrew and #thriller fans - I started a book club on Fable. My goal is to read mystery/thriller type books that give Nancy Drew vibes - intrepid girl detective etc. I have seen a lot of books that I feel could fall into this category- possibly even some that cross over into fantasy as well. Not all necessarily YA either. I invite you to join if these are your kind of books!

Jennifer Lynn Barnes uses motifs such as chess, keys, and cupcakes to evoke a mysterious mood, explore the themes, and create symbolic repetitive meanings in this creatively reimagined Cinderella story.

This YA mystery is every bit as exciting as a story about a young woman who learns a billionaire she‘s never met has left her all his money essentially disinheriting his four grandsons (the entire family really) sounds like it should be. Best of all? They all have to live together in the family mansion for a year otherwise the money goes to charity. And then there‘s a puzzle to solve, danger, family drama, paparazzi, & more. Very entertaining.

DogMomIrene Sounds super fun! Stacking!👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 4mo

Oh dear, that was dangerous. Finished one book, started the next one.... and several hours later it's 2am and I finished it. I have to get up again in a few hours. That makes for high praise for The Inheritance Games - I literally couldn't put it down. It was recommended to me by a school librarian and she tells me books 2 and 3 are just as good. They're going on my shopping list.

Im hooked. I see what all the hype is about. You had me at hello. Very unique and interesting story where our FMC spends the book trying to figure out her part in these games. Why she was chosen. This had mystery, family drama and of course some tragic love thrown in there for good measure. Curious to see how this series ends. #seriesread2022 @TheSpineView

Catching up on #Scarathlon posts, so I apologize for the blitz!

My YA book club is meeting later this morning to discuss The Final Gambit, so a re-read was in order! Still love this book and the plot, which is just so much fun- who hasn't dreamed of inheriting tons of money from a mysterious benefactor? I'm not as great with the riddles, but still so much fun.

Falling within the young adult genre, this book is the first in a three book series. This book has a dark academia aesthetic, is fast-paced, and provides twists that‘ll keep the reader guessing. If you enjoy YA novels and are looking for some escapism, you‘ll likely enjoy this book. Full review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/4744748658

1. Owl. I call the one that randomly visits my house, Lorna.
2. I love sharing Coraline with my kids. The Shining is probably my go to scary book re-read.
3. I definitely yell at people.
4. I still get excited to hear The Monster Mash for the First time every year
5. My daughter is already starting our list. Beetlejuice and Hocus Pocus always top the list. My favorite scary movie is Rob Zombies Halloween.

Book 1 of the series! Can I just say I loved loved this book! So unpredictable- can I just say I can‘t believe that this is a YA novel! These twisty turns and puzzles are so page turning. I love the dark academia vibe that starts coming out too! This is a definite pick for me!

JamieArc I‘m looking for some dark academia books for fall. Stacking this one! Also, welcome to Litsy! 🎉🎉. If you haven‘t started following @LitsyEvents I‘d recommend it to get a feel for everything that‘s going on. 7mo
rachreadsbooks @JamieArc I can‘t wait to read book2! I hope it keeps going with that feeling! It‘s not as deep as normal dark academia but it‘s just enough and this book just feels good- like a ride! Thanks I will give it a follow! 7mo

this YA mystery was just ok for me. I enjoyed some aspects of the puzzle and definitely wanted to find out answers as much as Avery herself did, but things got a little too crazy at the end. I‘m not sure I care enough to continue on with the series. I will say though, I think it would make a great tv show!

✅ YA novel
book 8/22 for 22 #readingchallenge
