Sorry for the delay, Tien; I was at the Miami Open all day yesterday. You've got to love those ageless Bryan Brothers!

Here are your picks. I really liked the first two and the third is your highest rated:

The Girl With All the Gifts
The Story of Edgar Sawtelle
They Cannot Take the Sky

Enjoy!

Hi, Amy. I have landed on Agatha Award and would appreciate 3 book selections from my shelf. Thanks.


message 35: by Amy (new)

Amy | 2125 comments Bea wrote: "Hi, Amy. I have landed on Agatha Award and would appreciate 3 book selections from my shelf. Thanks."

Here are three with names in the title, Bea:

The Story of Edgar Sawtelle
The Unthinkable Thoughts of Jacob Green
The Confessions of Nat Turner

I enjoyed The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, but haven't read the other two.


message 36: by Bea (new)

Bea | 4419 comments Mod
I think I will go with The Unthinkable Thoughts of Jacob Green as it is on two different group challenges for 2019 and the shortest of the three. Currently I am reading a 1000+ page book, so short books look good.

message 38: by Amy (new)

Amy | 2125 comments Lusie wrote: "Hi Amy! Can you please pick 3 books for me from my shelf?"

Here you are, Lusie:

The Silent Patient (I just picked this up from the library)
Girls' Night Out (I could use one of these!)
The Thread (I just had to sew a pet bed that my evil dog chewed up)

Hope one is to your liking :-)


message 39: by Lusie (new)

Lusie (illusie) | 2954 comments Thank you! I think I'll go for the thread.
lol Oh no, evil dog! Is the damage bed or can you still use the pet bed?

My sewing skills are mediocre at best, but I saved the pet bed. My dog is using it as I write this (my good dog, not the evil spawn).

Wow! You have a lot of books listed that I'd never heard of. I'm choosing one from a cozy mystery series, one from a non-mystery series, and one stand-alone. I hope you like whichever one you choose.

A Likely Story
Daughter of Moloka'i
The Silent Patient

Thanks, Susan. I'm almost never away, but I didn't get a message for Amanda's request so I totally missed it. Thanks for stepping in for me.
