Girl A | Abigail Dean

Mehso-so

🌟3/5🌟
Not a thriller at all. It‘s more so a retelling of a traumatic, heartbreaking childhood, heavily inspired from the Turpin case. The author likes to switch different timelines a lot (almost every paragraph) and it gets very confusing which timeline you‘re in or which character is being referred to. It‘s one of those things where you gotta read a few more sentences to get the gist. Starts slow but starts picking up towards the end!

The book concerned itself with too many characters and it tried to describe all of the different phases of their lives no matter how irrelevant they were to the core of the story. It muddled Alma and Ichimei‘s relationship. Until the end, I couldn‘t appreciate their relationship. There was also too much narration and very little dialogue. Everything is described exactly leaving little room for one‘s imagination.

This book was really just about the eldest sister (Korede) cleaning up after serial killer sister‘s (Ayoola) mess. The book was far too short and lacked too much depth for me to fully understand why Ayoola was the way she was. Instead, we get Korede‘s bitter POV throughout the book. There‘s no growth at all with any of them until the end. Ayoola stays shallow, Korede‘s stays bitter, and their mom is forever in-denial.

And Yet: Poems | Kate Baer

Baer does it again! I annotated so many pages in this collection. Her ability to write about motherhood and womanhood always resonate with me and this book was no different. I found this collection had stronger themes of death than her last two, possibly because of when it was written, but again it resonated with me. Her writing is so accessible, honest and meaningful.
My favorites were :
There Are Days
Idea
January
Gay Poem
The Truth Is

This book wanted to be the next IWWV & TSH, but it‘s terrible. The writing gave me a lot of 2nd hand embarrassment. I just kept despairing that no actual human being would behave and talk this way. The characters are all unbearable and deserve every bit of misery.

Rating: 0 /5
