This happening?


I might break down and read Kathleen Valenti's newest book. 8)


(I mean, murder mysteries count as crime,...right? :lol: )
She/Her

People who say “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” don’t understand how words can be stones, hard and sharp-edged and dangerous and capable of doing so much more harm than anything physical.

Absolutely! Life gets in the way sometimes :doh:

I would say murder is a crime, so murder mysteries definitely counts. :)

I'm reading The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides, and I'm really enjoying it so far. :techie-studyingbrown:

Nice! I'm about halfway through now, and I want to keep reading more! The chapters are super short, which I like, too.

@gali, did you want to try to do a read-a-long with The Silent Patient? I promise I'll be better than the last two read-a-longs... :oops:

True, but I was thinking since you are a faster reader, you would probably catch up pretty quickly to where I am. :D

We can also just wait until the next book, if you'd like. :)

I will finish my current book and start this one in a couple of days. :)

@hsimone have you finished the book? I started it. If you still read it, I will open a thread for it.
