Review: My Sister, The Serial Killer

Updated: Dec 23, 2023

Synopsis:


Blood is thicker than water, and you'd know that when you're constantly cleaning it up. In this novel written by Oyinkan Braithwaite, we learn about two sisters who couldn't be more different if they tried. Korede, the older sister, works hard and tries to show her beauty in other ways that aren't physical. On the other hand, her sister, Ayoola, uses all the gifts given to her that are her looks. Even if a man is interested in Korede first, it takes no time for them to forget about her once Ayoola enters the room. To them, they are getting the most precious gem and the most outstanding trophy to show off. What they don't know is that Ayoola will only send them to their graves with little to no explanation. She only gets away with it because her loving big sister helps her clean up with the crime, with little to no questions asked. Even when Korede tries to warn the man of her dreams to avoid her sister, he takes it that she is just jealous and she will find her man someday. He realizes he is wrong when he finds himself fighting for his life against Ayoola. The question is, does he make it out alive?




My Review:


I rated this book a 2.5. It wasn't my usual style of writing, but it had some interesting moments. It was fast-paced, but still left room for a lot of questions. There was little info about the kind of father they had and the fact that he wasn't the nicest man. I don't feel like I ever found out why Ayoola killed these men and why Korede felt like she had to take up for her. I also didn't like how Korede got passed over so easily when her sister just waltzed into the room. I wanted to like this book, but it wasn't my cup of tea. I'm sure others like it, and maybe they have a better understanding than I do. My word is not and will never be the holy grail.
