The Dinner List answers the question, what would you do if the five people you would invite to dinner (dead or alive) actually showed up, and if I'm being honest, I'm not really sure I liked the answer. I was really excited about the concept of this book and thought it was going to go into more about all the guests, and while it kind of went into each of their importance a little bit the main story was about the main character, Sabrina, and the love of her life, Tobias. The story alternates back and forth between Sabrina and Tobias love story and whats happening currently at the dinner table and I didn't find either storyline particularly intriguing. The story moved really slow and took me multiple times picking it up to finally get through it. I wasn't the biggest fan of the relationship between Sabrina and Tobias, feeling like it left a lot to be desired and was at the point where I really didn't care what happened between many of the characters. Like I said before, the concept of this book was really cool and I'm sure their are a lot of people who will love this book, I just wasn't one of them.
