This book is absolutely gorgeous in person. It‘s almost too pretty to read. Plus, it has some kind of scent to it as well. 🥰❤️😍

First time in a while I have been this invested in a story. Hard for me to believe this is a debut novel. Such amazing writing.

I haven‘t been reading very much lately. It‘s mainly been because of a combination of work stress and diamond painting addiction. But I just got these new releases and feel like it might be time to dive into something new.

Which one should I read first?

TheBookStacker My box is taking forever! 9mo
Velvetsun @TheBookStacker I feel you. Plus, My box arrived all torn up. Thankfully the books weren‘t damaged. 9mo
hermyknee @TheBookStacker @Velvetsun my book is taking forever, too! I‘m really disappointed because today is the release day for the book I chose (The Winter Sister). Thank goodness I didn‘t pick On The Come Up - I would be so mad if I didn‘t have it today! As it is, I preordered it on audible so I had it as soon as I woke up today! But, my #botm tracking says my pick ISN‘T EVEN AT USPS YET. 😐😑 (edited) 9mo

TheBookStacker I am almost done with the silent patient, it‘s very good! 9mo
LaurensLibrary Sometimes my tracking says its still "in route to usps" and then it will update a few hours later and say its being delivered the next day. I'm not complaining, I just don't think the tracking is reliable. ? 9mo
LaurensLibrary Also I heard one of the books sold out real quick.. like it was gone the night of 1/31. 9mo
Velvetsun @laurenslibrary The Silent Patient sold out, I think. It‘s not listed on the site right now. 9mo

I have tried so hard to wait to start this series until it was completed...I hate waiting a year+ between books.
But, with the last book coming out in a couple of months I think it‘s finally time to do this.

Ddzmini I bought the second one yesterday and can‘t wait to read it but I‘m reading “The Red Book” now and can‘t put that down 👀📖 so it has to wait nail biting time but I‘m loving it 📚😋🤣🤣🤣 10mo
julesG That's exactly why I started this a few days ago. 10mo
Velvetsun @julesG How do you like it? 10mo
julesG Started this as audiobook and like it, but I'm going to switch to the ebook. I kept checking Google books because it was slightly confusing with flashbacks and such. 10mo
