I was a bit disappointed by this story, as I felt like it had a lot of potential and did not live up to my expectations. I felt like Korede was a great character, but completely misrepresented herself and gave up on everything to help her…

This book was a very quick read but an enjoyable one. Took me a few hours to burn through it and I personally enjoyed the ending. A very satisfying book to go through. The characters are imperfect, well thought out and unique. I found…

Despite the slasher title, this is a fine read. I could hear Korede speaking in every sentence. Helping her sister cover up murders is her calling. Just as she has always protected her. But now, Korede wants this man but he is in love…

A terrifying and absolutely chilling story that will make you ask yourself just how well you know those close to you. An exceptionally enjoyable book if you are looking for a short, exciting read. Oyinkan Braithwaite creates a tale with a…

This book hits so many notes for me: an apathetic female lead, dark humor, sisterly bonds, murder. Did I just say I like to read books about murder? Yes, yes I did. Don’t @ me. Unlike other suspenseful novels with unreliable narrators,…

Had to check this book out after reading Nikita-Kiran Singh's review of it in The Wandered. Was not disappointed.

What a fun, maddening read!

I actually really loved this story. My hatred of Ayoola is real and my frustration with Korede is overpowering. I just wanted to shake her the entire novel. Well written and definitely leaves you with a sense of unease and dissatisfaction,…

Fast paced crime novel set in Nigeria. Dark humor abounds in this murder mystery featuring two very different sisters.

I found this book fast-paced, humorous and emotionally charged. I found the structure of this book refreshing and it was an all-round great escape.

In pandemic times reading is hard when your focus is consumed by stress, but it's one of the few safe things to do. Although "My Sister, the Serial Killer" lacked depth of plot and characters, it succeeds in being a fast past, stylish…

Mostly fluff. Lacked depth in the characters. Predictable in story. Quick read though, if you want something light to pound out.
Jun 08, 2020WPL_Najeeba rated this title 3.5 out of 5 stars
This was a quick read, pretty high-paced and entertaining. The author did a great job of portraying the balance between sibling rivalry with a need to protect one's siblings - either because of a feeling of responsibility or sheer love for…

Quick, dark, witty. Good summer read if you enjoy this genre.

Raised by an abusive father, the younger and irresponsible sister finds herself incapable of having a relationship without murdering the man, and her duty bound elder sister feels resigned to helping clean up the mess, most literally.…

This book flew by, Braithwaite's writing style is super engaging and its easy to connect with Korede and even to some degree empathize with said serial killer sister Ayoola. Ayoola has somewhat of a manic pixie dream girl vibe to her…

Quick, engrossing read about a twisted relationship between sisters. It was a fun book for a day in!

Dark and quick read. Where does loyalty end when it comes to family? Is murder or several murders an ending to a relationship? Should family always back family up?
Jan 15, 2020
With dark humor and a unique premise, this quick read is both disturbing and fascinating. Korede’s honest examination of her sister, and how she came to be what she is, will immerse readers in her moral dilemma. Addictive and surprisingly…
