What a cool read!I'd never been to Nigeria in books before. I found the setting very colorful, what was described anyway... was mostly attire.I really liked the characters, although I was frustrated at times by Ayoola's foolish and flirtatious manner. I can just imagine how her sister felt.The story...

Even though this was not exactly what I was expecting , I still really enjoyed it to the point that I flew through it. Now it is on the shorter side , but I put aside other books I was reading just to finish it. Starting out I was expecting it to be more like [book:My Lovely Wife|39796904] or the [b...

This was a quick and easy read. I loved its contemporary setting and unabashed display of a Nigerian society I actually recognise. As much as I appreciate all the renowned African literature set in politically charged times or civil unrest, it was refreshing to read a thriller based in an upper midd...

A funny, charming and sometimes suspenseful book. Korede's narrative voice is strong and unique.

Had I started earlier yesterday it would ...

It's that good.Set in the vibrant, noisy, dense city of Lagos, Nigeria, Korede is always cleaning up after her younger sister Ayoola, who is self-absorbed, entitled, and by most people's accounts, beautiful - at l...

This is one of the times that I'm glad I took a chance on a book I saw floating around my dashboard. The audio is great, and I had a lot of fun with the sisterly relationship in this one, which basically consists of loyalty while still not really liking each other. I mean, Ayoola understandably exas...

I was pretty sure I knew what I was getting myself into when I picked up this book. It is called MY SISTER, THE SERIAL KILLER, after all, and I wasn’t disappointed! This is a tale of two sisters bonded by sisterhood, an abusive childhood and murder. One sister is the beautiful, flighty one. The ot...

"My Sister, The Serial Killer" both is and is not what the title and the cover would lead you to expect. It is a book set in Lagos about two sisters, the younger of whom, Ayoola, has, by the start of the novel, already killed three men and the older sister, Korede, has always helped clean up the m...
