    He put a hand on my thigh and moved it higher, digging his nails into my skin That ll be a pair of tights gone. This book is a bit deceiving Queenie is such a funny and lovable character, with what I think of as a very British sense of humour The book opens with multiple scenes that made me laugh and the author quickly builds up a warm and hilarious dynamic between Queenie and her girlfriends the Corgis , and between Queenie and her Jamaican grandparents This is everything I would have He put a han

    This is the kind of novel whose excellence sneaks up on you The beginning is kind of rocky and I wasn t sure where the book was going but then it gets great and unputdownable and I held my breath reading as fast as I could to see what would happen to Queenie This is an amazing novel about what it means to be a black girl whose world is falling apart and needs to find the strength to put it back together There is so much ground covered here from dealing with anxiety and self loathing to compli This is the kind o

    I empathized a lot with the protagonist and her struggles along with the portrayal of mental health, including the cultural stigma of seeking therapy, how childhood affects the way we treat relationships, how we internalize racism and learn to love ourselves as a WOC, etc The audiobook narrator also did a great job at bringing the story to life I struggle to emotionally connect with this book as much as I should, mainly because the progression of the narrative felt disjointed The first 2 3 of I empathized a lot with

    5 shiny, rebellious, beautiful stars As soon as I started this book, I thought I was having a light reading Because the book is advertised as modern version of Bridget Jones But after a few pages later, I realized this is deeper,heart wrenching, darker and twisted story of a young woman who is looking for a tree branch to not fall down from a cliff Queenie has really a bad year but it s not about her broken heart after her breakup or time out with her longtime boyfriend Tom This is su 5 shiny, rebellious, beautiful stars A

    Queenie is the newest debut sensation coming out of the UK by Candace Carte Williams Sadly it was not my cup of tea for a few reasons Firstly the good things about the book are the writing, especially the natural dialogue, and the fact that Queenie does get that mental health care that she so desperately needs However as a whole this book is based on too many black women stereotypes I really feel the author should have toned that down I m also not enjoying that this book is being pitched as Queenie is the newest debut sensation

    Why I love itby Jojo MoyesI have to confess I have a prior interest in Queenie s author, Candice Carty Williams A few years ago, I created a competition offering up my cottage to an aspiring writer in need of time and space to complete their project Candice was the first winner, chosen fromthan 600 applicants She had never driven outside London before, and it took her six hours to make a two hour journey the kind of thing that would happen to her character, Queenie , but when she arri Why I love itby Jojo MoyesI have to confess I have a pri

    A tiresome novel that made me cranky Everything about Queenie screams middle school angst Queenie and her crew think and act like 12 year olds trapped in 25 year old bodies Take away some of the sex, replace their jobs with 7th grade classes and you have the tedious dramas of adolescence I liked the clever use of texts That s about it.
