Mary Pat | 2186 comments Suggested break down of reading so that you can check in and let us know how you're doing. The following breakdown is purely a suggestion and is therefore not set in stone.

Rather than putting dates for each section I've done it so that it takes into account that not everybody will necessarily have the book at the same time.

Week 1: 73
Week 2: 73
Week 3: 73
Week 4: 73



Joan Barnett | 863 comments I've read the first 2 and a half chapters. It is written a little differently. It has drawn me in a little bit. It seems like everything thinks she has a perfect life and it is setting us up to see what is not perfect about it. It seems like it will be an interesting read. Have you started it yet Allie?

Allie | 303 comments Sorry, Joan! I just got the book from my library and will be starting today. It’s gonna be super hot out so I’ll be sitting in front of the a/c all day long!


Joan Barnett | 863 comments I've only read 5 chapters so far but it gets you hooked. If I didn't have to work today I'd be reading more!! There are definitely some secrets going on that need to be uncovered.

Allie | 303 comments You definitely get hooked, I’m already up to page 185!

At first I had doubts....from grace’s anxiety within the first few pages, we know there’s certainly something going on. But I had doubts (especially since reading Gone Girl) that maybe she was an unreliable narrator and there was more to the story or a completely different side of the story from Jack’s perspective.

But nope, now I definitely think he’s a psychopath. I hope that doesn’t change with some wild ending that she’s been making it up this whole time. Everything is a little too neat though....


I’ll wait for you to catch up some more. I have another book I can finish up.


Joan Barnett | 863 comments Wow so dude is a little crazy. I'm up to page 123.


Allie | 303 comments Ya think?! Lol.
