Welcome to Bears, Beets, Book Club. Once a month I will recommend a book that I’ve read and enjoyed; I hope you enjoy my picks!
I am so tired of the news. I’ve been plugged into the news more than usual in the past few months (for obvious reasons) and it’s amazing how quickly reading the day’s latest can put me in a funk.
If that sounds familiar, take a break. At the risk of sounding like a middle school English teacher: Put down your phone and pick up a book. My Sister, The Serial Killer is a great one to crack open.
It’s short, funny, and a little dark, but not in a depressing sort of way. Even if you’re not a true crime fan, this book is entertaining and will keep you interested.
Book summary from Amazon:
Korede is bitter. How could she not be? Her sister, Ayoola, is many things: the favorite child, the beautiful one, possibly sociopathic. And now Ayoola's third boyfriend in a row is dead. Korede's practicality is the sisters' saving grace. She knows the best solutions for cleaning blood, the trunk of her car is big enough for a body, and she keeps Ayoola from posting pictures of her dinner to Instagram when she should be mourning her "missing" boyfriend. Not that she gets any credit.
Korede has long been in love with a kind, handsome doctor at the hospital where she works. She dreams of the day when he will realize that she's exactly what he needs. But when he asks Korede for Ayoola's phone number, she must reckon with what her sister has become and how far she's willing to go to protect her.
