Book Review: The Maidens by Alex Michaelides

Alex Michaelides writes seriously broken, battered, and fascinating characters! I read The Silent Patient when it came out and really enjoyed the mixture of psychology, trauma, and mystery. The Maidens brings together all those elements in a new, yet somehow familiar-feeling, way, and makes for a marvelous reading experience.

While a hearty suspension of disbelief is required in both books, I still found the story relatable and exceptionally engaging. The characters are a mess, honestly, but in a way that makes for brilliant revelations and breathless page-flipping. I really enjoyed the way the book referenced a few characters and events from TSP also. It was fascinating to see a second book hint at events in a first, when the first hasn’t happened yet chronologically – and it made me want to reread TSP as a result!

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my obligation-free review copy.
