Book Aesthetics

    Weekend Aesthetic {41}

    September 19, 2020

    The Weekend Aesthetic is a feature where I post book aesthetics on the weekend. They might be of a book I’m currently reading, recently read, or read a long time ago.

    Jennifer Lynn Barnes has been an auto-buy author for me for several years now—I just love the twisty books she writes so much. I immediately dived into The Inheritance Games the moment my preorder arrived, and I was hooked right away! It was so easy to fly through this novel with the short chapters, intriguing plot, and fun riddles. I loved Avery and the four Hawthorne brothers—their charm and personalities really made me question if I would be able to trust them. I especially loved Avery’s relationship with Grayson (enemies-to-kind-of-allies-to-maybe-forbidden-love?), so you better believe I’m hoping for more between them in book two. If you’re a fan of Knives OutThe Inheritance Games is the perfect book for you!

    The Inheritance Games

    The Inheritance GamesRelease Date: September 1, 2020
    Find it: Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound

    Avery Grambs has a plan for a better future: survive high school, win a scholarship, and get out. But her fortunes change in an instant when billionaire Tobias Hawthorne dies and leaves Avery virtually his entire fortune. The catch? Avery has no idea why—or even who Tobias Hawthorne is.

    To receive her inheritance, Avery must move into sprawling, secret passage-filled Hawthorne House, where every room bears the old man’s touch—and his love of puzzles, riddles, and codes. Unfortunately for Avery, Hawthorne House is also occupied by the family that Tobias Hawthorne just dispossessed. This includes the four Hawthorne grandsons: dangerous, magnetic, brilliant boys who grew up with every expectation that one day, they would inherit billions. Heir apparent Grayson Hawthorne is convinced that Avery must be a conwoman, and he’s determined to take her down. His brother, Jameson, views her as their grandfather’s last hurrah: a twisted riddle, a puzzle to be solved. Caught in a world of wealth and privilege, with danger around every turn, Avery will have to play the game herself just to survive.



    What would you do first if you inherited a billion dollars?
