2019 was a great year for books and now that the year is over, many book lovers are looking back at what they read through the year. Bustle reached out to 38 of 2019’s debut authors to see what they chose as their favourite books of the year.
I was asked to share my choice and I recommended My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite.
“My Sister, the Serial Killer was the best book of 2019 because it literally has it all: a complex protagonist; a vibrant setting; a thrill-filled, intriguing pace; and, if that weren’t enough, a problematic love triangle… But what really makes My Sister, the Serial Killer the best book of 2019 is the relationship between Korede, the heroine, [and] her younger sister Ayoola, the serial killer. The bond of sisterhood demonstrated by author Oyinkan Braithwaite transcends the circumstances of these characters, and it will resonate with anyone who’s ever had a complicated relationship full of love and resentment, loyalty and betrayal.”
