  • Loved it!

    I wasn't quite sure what to expect with "My Sister, the Serial Killer" by Oyinkan Braithwaite but once I'd started to flick through it and read a couple of pages I was hooked and before I knew it, I was a third of the way through! Thoroughly modern and set in Lagos, Nigeria, this is a quick, enjoyable read that is dark, humorous and shows the bond between two sisters that stays strong no matter what....including murder. Every man falls in love with young and gorgeous Ayoola, the minute they set eyes on her. Fatally for them though, when she has grown bored of them she kills them and then calls her sister Korede to help clean up the mess. Crazy right? But with her sister a neat freak and a hospital nurse who better to call on to keep her secrets? This mad but exciting and thoroughly enjoyable read is addictive and has characters you can't help but endear to, both sisters have unusual qualities and the story was a pleasure to read. A completely original and unique premise that offers the reader a touch of humour to an otherwise dark and twisted tale, you can't help smiling at many of the quirky chapters and is guaranteed to have you turning the pages quicker than you can read them. If you're into intelligent, complicated and descriptive literary novels this won't be for you - this story is easy to follow with a simple storyline that's fast, enjoyable and leaves you feeling so glad that you've found such a fun read. 4.5 rounded up to 5 stars

  • 4 Killer Stars

    4 Killer Stars Review by Lisa Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Well, that was one hell of a story. Murder/murders, sister drama, work drama, family drama with a side of deadpan puns, this is the book for you. My Sister, The Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite is one that I keep thinking...wow I just read that. My only hang up is the ending, I felt it left me hanging and wanting to ask "that's it? I want to know more". Korede has taken on the role of protector for her little sister, Ayoola. Ayoola is the one that has it "all", the looks, the lightness about her and men dropping at her feet....literally. Ayoola is also on the "insane" spectrum with having a problem of killing her boyfriends. Korede who is also a nurse in a hospital has no life, working and cleaning up her sister's messes. When Ayoola shows up at Korede job things go from just okay to worse. Can Korede keep Ayoola from killing someone she cares about? I like how the author laid this story out. Jumping right into a murder scene and then the going back and forth from the past to present. The story flowed effortlessly and moved right along. A thriller, murder story at its best.

  • Excellent! Powerfully written and engaging.

    An outstanding first novel! I particularly like the style, which had a gritty toughness to it that exactly fitted the subject matter. More clarity in the ending of the book would help, as would greater length and complexity in the structure of the work - perhaps a sequel is indicated!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • You can’t see it coming.

    I was intrigued by the book and after reading it, I realize that, regardless of the scenario you might be in, family matters most. The context were the main character was is unconventional but you can totally relate to her sense of familiarity and protection towards her sister.

    Thanks for your feedback!
