January Book Club 2020: My Sister The Serial Killer

We've inhaled the pages of Oyinkan Braithwaite's debut novel, 'My Sister The Serial Killer' and with a title like that, you can see why!

When Korede’s dinner is interrupted one night by a distress call from her sister, Ayoola, she knows what’s expected of her: bleach, rubber gloves, nerves of steel and a strong stomach. This will be the third boyfriend Ayoola’s dispatched in, quote, self-defence and the third mess that her lethal little sibling has left Korede to clear away. She should probably go to the police for the good of the menfolk of Nigeria, but she loves her sister and, as they say, family always comes first.

Until that is, Ayoola starts dating the fit doctor where Korede works as a nurse. Korede’s long been in love with him, and isn’t prepared to see him wind up with a knife in his back: but to save one would mean sacrificing the other…

Find out if this crime thriller had us on the edge of our seats…

Enjoyed the book so much!


I personally did not like the book. It felt like you really did not get much character development besides a few flashbacks and it felt like it ended abruptly. Other than that I liked the length and thought it was easy to follow along.


Read it in two days. I felt like it was to fast the story, it was to easy to read. I wish it was longer, that there where more details. It just felt dry. 😞


Sounds great 🙂

I liked reading this book but I was expecting more “crimes” to happen. I thought it was going to be more like a thriller. Over all I liked the book but I expected more from it. The ending disappointed me a bit.

Get it while it's hot!
