    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

    Thank you to everyone that has commented on this review whether you agreed or not, in a positive way Most of you have not For that, you are in my prayers, because you need a help I cannot offer I don t like this book, and no amount of your ranting will change my mind about that It is not the wholly Black positive thing you re claiming it to be Th

    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 an

    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

    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

    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.
