One of my new favorite books 📖 AMAZING ❤️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️5/5
Alicia Berenson shot her husband in the head five times. Since then, she hasn't spoken a single word.
This…wow… I finished the book last night and had to just sleep on it. The ending, the twist, I didn‘t see it coming. I sat, staring at the pages for a good twenty minutes, trying to wrap my head around what the heck I just read. And honestly, it was a pretty good read. There were times when I was disappointed by the writing style, but for the most part, it was good. I think. Idk. I‘m still confused if I liked it or not. Just read it yourself.
I feel like I need to give this book another try… I‘ve heard so many good things, and I think it might‘ve been because I was doing the audiobook and the reader just had me so turned off from it for some reason, I just couldn‘t get into it.

1. Yes! Yes! Yes!😊
3. Haruki Murakami. His magical realism storytelling always takes me where I least expect it. Same as David Lynch with his surreal movies. You never know what's happening, where the story is going and why. Love it.

I literally can not say enough good things about or recommend this book enough. A psycho thriller in which a woman, Alicia, shoots her husband after ~6 years of marriage, and then goes silent for ~6 years following. Enter psychotherapist, Theo, to try to uncover why she went silent and try to get her to talk again. Twists and turns and many psychology components, absolutely a must read.
This is my beloved house rabbit, Moxie Crimefighter, helping me with a reading challenge nearly 7 years ago.
First thing tomorrow morning, she goes in for oral surgery. She gets a little, bunny-sized gas mask, & they knock her out so they can file her teeth down. It should help with the pain she‘s been experiencing. The doctor is renowned in her field & very reassuring…but I‘m *incredibly* nervous.
Please send us love from your corner. 💞
I did not see that coming. Red herrings everywhere. I listened to the authors interview at the end and it was cool to hear how influenced he was by mythology. Good read if you like twisty whodunnits but not a psychological thriller, in my opinion. A solid mystery nonetheless.
It is more of a character study than a murder investigation. It's about what goes on inside the mind of the murderer and also the psychological effect of the events leading up to the murder. The brilliant plot twist. No matter how many murder mysteries you read, you wouldn't see this one coming. The last few pages tie up the novel so beautifully that you will find yourself flipping back to the pages to check if you have somehow missed some clues.
Tagged audiobook kept me company while I cleaned up my workspace and filed paperwork to wrap up this challenging school year. To all the Litsy teachers, instructional assistants, school administrators, OTs, PTs, SLPs, guidance counselors, school librarians, school nurses, and all the other essential school personnel I‘ve neglected to mention- thank you for your hard work and dedication. I hope you have an amazing summer!
The silent patient is about Alicia who is found with a gun and her husband murdered. As Theo starts to look into Alicia's pass as to why she has became mute things start coming together.
Fully engrossed in the book. Had twist and turns I didn't see coming. Thoroughly enjoyed it left me shook.
Phew! This was a good read and definitely lived up to what i was looking for in my reading at the moment – it's a psychological thriller, with good premise and pace. I had forgotten how it feels to finish a book in a day, and it's great when thrillers deliver on that. Pick it up if you are in a slump or are generally looking for a novel with good suspense writing.
PS: I found the narrator annoying at times though. 🤪
It appears I will be re-reading this book 😂
In an effort to get my non-reader coworker to read more books, we started an unofficial book club.
We let Non-Reader choose the book and the schedule (and I said it didn‘t matter to me if I had already read the book).
He arbitrarily chose 5 chapters a week. Then someone realized the book is 71 chapters. This will officially be the slowest reading pace ever for a thriller but I am so excited 😅
Oops. Forgot that I finished this last night. Tells a lot about the story, huh? I almost DNF'd this one because I was just so bored but it did pick up closer toward the end. Not enough that I'd classify it as a great thriller but it was ok.
I'll figure the #readathons out later. My book is too far away 😂😂

Delilah has been doing well since her tumors were removed. Although there was some scary swelling in her paw initially, it is back to its normal size now. Her wounds are still healing and the one on her foreleg looks especially raw since the tumor was so large and some of the stitches had to be removed. But I think she is out of the woods. She‘ll be going into the vet today for a checkup and I know she is hoping she‘ll ⬇️
