My Sister, The Serial Killer Book Review

Summary: This is the third time that Korode has to clean up her sister’s mess and she is hoping its the last time. Karode is starting to believe that her sister is a serial killer and now she has set her eyes on the man that Karode was after. Will she be able to get to him on time or will it be too late? Is Ayoola actually telling the truth?

Thoughts: I started reading this since I kept seeing it all over bookstagram and then on my Goodreads as well. I decided since it was a short read I might as well pick it up. I didn’t hate but also it wasn’t a 5 star read for me. I knew that some things were already going to go over my head because of the satire but I found that I still enjoyed some aspects despite that.

Something that I actually enjoyed in this was the stark contrast between Korede and Ayoola. Not only were the differences in their looks mentioned often but you also saw the difference in their personalities. I really enjoyed getting to see

Something that I was not a fan of was the short chapters because each chapter felt like it was starting a different story. There were some chapters that I felt didn’t really add to the story and others that I wanted more of. I also felt that there were no transitions in between the chapters so it read like a book without a plot even when the plot was intriguing.

The ending has two twists which redeem this book for me. I really thought and was hoping that it would go in one direction when suddenly it went in a direction that I didn’t even picture. Once that happened I was like oh for sure I know what’s coming next but nope that isn’t what happened either. I was quite pleased with both of these twists.

I recommend this book to those of you who enjoy a short quick read, or who enjoy mystery/thriller books.

You can purchase this book at Barnes and Noble or look for it at your local library.
