Oh dear.

Piper Adler wake she up in hospital after apparently attempting to take her own life, but she knows she wouldn't do something like that...

This novella reads as a submission to a school creative writing contest, one that didn't win.

Just do yourself a favour and avoid throwing your money away on this nonsense, I wish I hadn't bothered.

Yes, I'm grumpy, but I'm frustrated with my precious reading time being wasted on drivel like this.

Genre: Psychological Thriller

I picked up this book on a whim today because I was looking for something different to to fade into that wasn't a romance. So it definitely checked off this mark for me. I also read it in just a few hours because it is a very quick and fast paced read. Here on goodreads it says the kindle edition is a little over 400 pages but I think this is wrong, it's more of a novella length. With that, The Paper Year is a decent thriller although

When I opened this up on my Kindle, that little side bar popped up, saying that it was 417 pages long, but would only take a little under two hours to read.


Indeed, this is a short story/novella, not a novel. Good to see Goodreads has it listed as only 141 pages. I'm going to Amazon after writing this review to get my money back, as I was deceptively sold something that I did not receive.

In any case, it was another psychological thriller that claimed on the cover that it had an amazing twist.
"The Paper Year", is a psychological thriller, a story typically outside of my normal reading genre I was unsure how I would feel about the story to spite the fact that it was written by a romance author I read normally. Well I am happy to say I loved it! The plot line was gripping and had me captured from the very beginning.

I have been getting back into reading my thrillers and mystery novels, and I also like the author Avery Aster, so when I saw that she had a new one out, I wanted to read it. I loved this book so much, and if you are a fan of psychological thrillers, then this is a book that you will love. The book starts off with a woman trapped in a basement. At first, I thought that the husband had done something and was trying to get rid of her and that she was seriously cray-cray. The book then jumps back to ...more

I enjoyed this book. It's a quick read and I read it in one sitting.

Piper Adler a psychotherapist lives with her husband and her dog in an apartment. Her life starts falling apart when she wakes up in hospital and is told she attempted to commit suicide. Did she and just can't remember?? It gets worse when some people don't believe her.

I didn't guess what was happening which is a great plus as my mind tried to work overtime throughout the story.

I thought the ending was a bit rushed but I didn

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review for Stephanie's Book Reports.

Sutton Place is the be all end all as far as places to live goes. Everyone who is anyone lives there and now Piper Adler, a psychotherapist, is moving into a garden apartment with her new husband. Life to Piper couldn't be any better or so she thinks until she wakes up in a hospital accused of trying to take her own life.

I am a huge Manhattanites fan, having said that I did like this book, it was different than the normal Avery Aster book, but very good too.

I really liked Piper's character. She is a married therapist, who is very smart and calm under pressure. When an odd accident happens and lands her in the hospital, she really digs in and tries to find answers. Through all of these "accidents" and missteps, her husband is not very supportive. I really was not a fan of his, personally he really wasn't a very g

"The Barclay makes Real Housewives lame."

Oh many drama queens here.
This life in a building with some interesting characters is totally typical Avery Aster and I love it, well who doesn't, these people got me laughing and drive me nuts at the same time. It's also different from other Avery's books, this one got some suspense in it.
For short book, I really enjoying this one. I got the thrill, the angst and all the sadness and loneliness. Although it felt a bit rushed at the end,

The Paper Year
Avery Aster

This book is a very quick read and it leaves me more "wondering" than satisfied. You get a list of characters and who they are from page one. Now that had me worried in a sense as if you have to clarify who your characters are and what their roll is then to me you aren't expecting your readers to remember them on their own. When I'm consumed with a books characters even with series I don't need this. I remember exactly who is who and what they are involved in.
