#awesomeautumnbooks #troubledrelationship
Who says you can't run away from your problems? You are a failed novelist about to turn fifty. A wedding invitation arrives in the mail: your boyfriend of the past nine years is engaged to someone else. You can't say yes--it would be too awkward--& you can't say no--it would look like defeat. On your desk are a series of invitations to half-baked literary events around the world. Let's accept them all...

I'm a little behind in my own challenge! This is my pick for #AwesomeAutumnBooks - #Liars & #TroubledRelationship - #OneofUsIsLying by #KarenMcManus. It has been described as #PrettyLittleLiars meets #TheBreakfastClub 😍It is on my #TBR and I'm hoping it will live up to all of the #hype. Has anyone read this yet? If so, what did you think about it? #YA #YoungAdult #Mystery #fiction #ToBeReadNext

britt_brooke In my TBR, too! It was a recommendation from @Cinfhen. 👍🏻 2y
MinDea I just bought this a couple weeks ago. I hope it is good! 2y
Cinfhen Oh no...#pressure @britt_brooke @Jess7 😱as a member of #NoYA OOUIL was a really fun, campy throwback to my HS days kind of read! It just worked...good mixture of mystery & snark 💕hope you all enjoy it @MinDea 2y

Pickpick

A gothic, sinister tale of 19 yr old Anne Jaccobs & the effects of her oppressive household on her psyche. She forms more than one #troubledrelationship & her calculated manipulations of each had my heart racing. The prose is so beautiful and poetic I found myself rereading paragraphs and dog-earing pages to return to later. This macabre tale set in Victorian London will definitely be one of my favorites this year.

Mehso-so

Chemistry has a #troubledrelationship! Sadly, I did not enjoy this as much as I was expecting to--perhaps I should forgive the narrator for having no personality given how depressed she is (I know-I've been there) but I couldn't get over my annoyance at how little she let us in. I would usually like little tidbits of information scattered throughout--they should be a pro for this book but they were so pedestrian, not at all profound or revealing.

Natasha.C.Barnes #awesomeautumnbooks It's so hard to explain what I mean in 451 characters! Sorry if this review makes no sense. 2y
emilyhaldi I totally agree with your assessment!! I felt the same. 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @emilyhaldi Omg so glad to hear it. The style AND subject matter sounded right up my alley, too... 2y
Natasha.C.Barnes @emilyhaldi And how many times have I heard ppl in fiction/tv/real life complain about ppl who want things to be "chemical-free" when everything is chemicals. So many times! 2y

I've only read half of this one but there was definitely a lot of familial troubles - sons vs fathers; wives vs husbands and of course subjects vs the King.
