I have been seeing this book for sooo long and finally, I decided to read it! My Sister, the Serial Killer is a book written by Oyinkan Braithwaite. It is a story about two sisters and as you can tell by the title one of them is a serial killer.

When I started reading this book, I was surprised by how fast I was going through it. I was very curious about what would happen and so I couldn’t put it down. The dynamic between Korede and Ayoola wasn’t different from other siblings but the murders surely spiced it up.

During the first half of the book, I didn’t like any of the characters. Korede seemed so uptight and Ayoola was so self-absorbed. I also didn’t like how everyone seemed to favor Ayoola and didn’t care for Korede. I thought I’d finish the book without liking any of the characters but I was wrong. The internal battle that Korede hooked me. Was she gonna do the right thing and protect Tade from Ayoola or was she gonna keep help cover for her sister? This book showed the lengths people would go to, to protect their family.

The only thing I didn’t like about the whole book is that it felt like it was hovering on the surface level. I wish it went more into the details of what was happening. I didn’t feel the story climax and was just surprised that I finished the book.
