  1. Great list! How did you make it so long without reading Gone Girl? The hype was huge!

    1. I know, and my brother kept threatening to ruin it for me because he watched the movie and couldn't believe that I wanted to read the book before watching the movie! I just had to avoid reading anyone's reviews so that I didn't see anyone's spoilers.

  2. Ooh Gillian Flynn is one I was going to try in 2016 and never did. I'll have to carry that over into 2017. :) And Riggs- I keep going back and forth on if I want to read Peregrine's or not.

  3. I just read a fantastic adult mystery by Linda Castillo. I already reserved the next 2 books in the series. Loved seeing who you read who are new to you too.
