MY SISTER, THE SERIAL KILLER by Oyinkan Braithwaite

My Sister, the Serial KillerMy Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a book I've wanted to read for ages & decided to get stuck into today.

Korede's sister is everyone's favourite. She's beautiful, manipulative and a killer. Ayoola is also a sociopath and needs Korede to help clean up every bloody mess she keeps making.

And now, Ayoola's got her eye on the handsome doctor Korede is secretly in love with...

I really enjoyed this! I liked the writing style, Korede's voice and found the story very intriguing. It's also written in short, snappy chapters that not only show what's going on, but also what led to this point in their lives.

It's quite an interesting look into how far someone is willing to go for family. How much bullshit some people will put up with just because they feel they have to. And how toxic some families really are.

Korede was a great character and I often felt bad for her because everyone treated her like crap. No one respected her or listened to what she had to say, just because she wasn't as pretty as her stupid sister. That's why I was often frustrated when she covered up for someone who really didn't deserve her protection.

It's also why the ending, while it made total sense, frustrated me even more.

Still, this turned out to be a great book, and a different angle in the serial killer genre.
