The Silent Patient was THE mystery thriller of 2019, with numerous friends and library patrons telling me I had to read it. I don’t know why it took me so long to pick this one up but I am glad I read it because I was hooked from the first page. I would highly recommend this book, especially if you like stories with a lot of twists and turns.
There were things that I really enjoyed about this book and found myself wanting to find out how everyone’s lives were affected by the horoscopes. There were other things that annoyed me and prevented me from giving this a higher ratting but it was a quick, fun read and I would recommend it as a summer read.
This was a book I read to fulfill a reading challenge I am attempting to complete this year—this book falls under the self-published category. A lot of romances are self-published and Courtney Milan is a pretty popular author so I thought this would be a good choice. This book wasn’t horrible but I found it slow and unengaging with so-so characters and a plot that never really grabbed me.
