Undoubtedly the best Thriller this year! The author writes with such an ease that made this book unputdownable!
One of two new books that managed to find their way into my cart at Target today. Can‘t wait to start this one!
A liked this thriller.Maybe the end was a clitché which I cannot mention without spoil the story. But it was a surprised for me at some point. I think what I liked more was the psychological dynamics between the characters, how some psychological terms were well managed like the concept of contratransference and the therapy sessions. I could imagine some of the art works described here I wish they would be real4⭐️debut novel?
This might be an #unpopularopinion, but I thought this book was garbage! You can tell it was written for the main purpose of adapting it into a movie. Despite what he says in the acknowledgments, the author clearly has zero real knowledge of therapy.
My book club has been picking some real crap lately. 😡 But at least the book was over quickly.
I thought this book was interesting, and definitely a quick read. The twist was satisfying. But it was also pretty simple and mostly predictable. Packed with in-your-face allusion and chapter-ending lines that are short and dramatic but don't really need to be. I don't regret reading it but would consider this a classic Mom book.
Next topic I would request a discussion on: What do y‘all mark on your sticky notes while reading?! If any. When I do a book club book, I use them to remember points during discussions. But that‘s normally all.
LOVE LOVE LOVE the bookmarks ! I think I‘m just going to use them all at once!! I love the handmade ones even more! The little monster on the corner is so cute. I know my step daughter will snatch up the dog one, I am not going to even get attached to that one lol. Thank you @Lexeegee @Kshakal @ValkyrieAndHerBooks 📚💛 Thank you @LibrarianRyan for hosting my first #swap !! #bookmarkswap
And.. the end. I was into it- but felt a little “meh” with it at the end. I think it was overhyped. And/or I read too many books in this genre. How did the side story of his wife resolve- I missed that and just don‘t feel like flipping around on a kindle to see if I missed something.
It‘s a ghastly murder by a troubled woman. This haunting tale will have readers ripping through the pages to see if Alicia ever speaks again and why she would have killed the husband she loved. Theo, her therapist... https://www.bluestockingreviews.com/blog/the-silent-patient
I‘m probably going to be in the minority here. 🙁 So, I really wanted to love this book. I didn‘t hate it but I didn‘t love it either. The end was a shock in a good way since I did not see that coming at all! But in the end this one was just a 3 star read for me.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #BOTM picks are on point. While Theo, our psychotherapist, comes off as slightly pathetic, and Alicia, our patient, is primarily silent, the need to know why she shot her husband kept me turning the pages. Each character we meet that came in contact with Alicia is shrouded in suspicion, none are likable. It‘s a quick read with a major twist!
We are heading for a cruise and yesterday I picked this up as a last minute vacation read. I read it in one sitting on the plane. This is one of the better thrillers I have read in some time. #24b4Monday
“I‘m so glad mom finished her book; now she can pay attention to me!”
4-4 1/2 stars until the end, which was disappointing and seemingly rushed. Solid otherwise, and enjoyable for the most part, but the ending needs rewriting. 🤷🏻♀️

Plane reading, not to be confused with plain reading. 😂 On to chapter 5. Airplanes are one of my favorite public places to read. ✈️📚

This was truly a captivating story that has plenty of twists & turns that will keep your eyes glued to the pages. I absolutely loved that I was caught up trying to decipher what truly took place that night between Alicia & her husband only to have all my guesses blown out of the water when the reveal finally took place. I did have my suspicions but I never would have guessed everything that took place. Full review at www.thegenreminx.com
So my mom‘s husband thought that the Christmas #BOTM subscription we got him meant that we were now in a book club together; and, since he has been wanting to talk about books/be in a book club with people he knows to no avail, he was *way* too excited about this and our “book of the month club” for me to tell him otherwise about his gift, so now I‘m reading a thriller, his genre of choice, for our “book club” for two. 😂 📚
I forgot to share when my #BOTM book FINALLY arrived last week 🙄. I‘m hoping to read this newest one next month. If not it‘ll make it onto my new Book of the Month shelf 🤗!
