This book was pretty good ! Had some twists and turns I didnt expect. And it's also very comical, a little but of everything (:
Hey guys! What‘s going on this fine Monday? For me? Well, I don‘t want to brag but, I just finished my first book since September. So this is a pretty big deal for me. Lol. To pull me out of my reading slump could only be done by a psychotic murderous unreliable narrator. It was a fantastic time hanging out with Anya!•

I actually enjoyed this book! It wasn‘t amazing but it was a quick fun read. I‘ve heard other people call it “campy” and that‘s exactly how I would describe it, like an episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, it deals with some serious content but in a light way. Anya borders on Joe Goldberg obsession and I hear this book is going to made into a show also.
I struggled through this book solely so I can write an accurate review. Seriously... what did I just read?? #Spoilers There was sooo much potential for this story. A first person serial killer story??? Sign me up! Negative. The dialogue was atrocious & there is no way that magazine people talk like this. It hurt to read. Also we never found out why Anya was crazy. I would not recommend this book at all.
I‘m trying to do more library ebooks to try to save some money, but now I have anxiety about timing my reading of other books to when my library holds come in! Is this a problem for anyone else?!
Very surprised by this book! I thought it was going to be kind of cheesy but it had way more depth than I thought. Anya was one of the creepiest main characters I‘ve read in a long time. This was a super easy, fun little read but not for the faint of heart. “Everyone fucks you over eventually. Everyone. Don‘t believe me? Look around at your friends. Think of everything they‘ve done that pissed you off. What kind of friends are they? Shitty ones.”
Everyone tells me this is a quick read so here goes nothing!
I shouldn‘t be surprised that the serial killer telling the story is crazy. For whatever reason this one‘s mental illness is disturbing and made for an uncomfortable read. There were some funny moments, but mostly it fell flat for me. I pretty much figured what would happen about halfway through and from then just made slow to go. Right at the end it picked up, but by then it was too late for me. Guess they can‘t all be winners.
Ever get so angry you could stab someone with a glass shard and repeatedly bash her head in? Me neither. Working for a fashion magazine is driving Anya St. Clair to murder. Fat shaming and racism are only two battles she fights along with snobby, backstabbing gossipers. This dark satire throws its shots at the fashion industry but falls flat with empathy for our main character. However, it's still a solid read.
It‘s a problem guys...
This was very much Dexter meets The Devil Wears Prada. It‘s a gory story set in the world of high fashion magazines . I found myself rooting for different characters at different points in the book and liked it overall, though some parts were a bit predictable.
This book...! I couldn‘t put it down!! What a debut! I I don‘t want to say too much, but I definitely recommend to all!!
Is this going to win a Pulitzer? Nope. Is it a darkly hilarious book that will keep you reading until the end? Yep.
It‘s the snarkiness and wit of Jo Piazza combined with the clever bite of Caroline Kepnes along with the bitchy, behind-the-scenes setting of The Devil Wears Prada. 👠💄⚰️
She‘s on board with Bitches Get Stitches.
OMG!!!! This book was so good. Anya works in fashion. I don't want to give to much away but let's just say when Anya wants to deal with a coworker, she takes care of the situation in her own special way. She was crazy! This book was a page turner and I wanted to know what Anya was going to do next. Can't wait to see what this author writes next. #botm
This book is straight up crazy cakes-in the best way. I loved it. The start was a bit slow for me but once I got into it I found it completely addictive-think watching a train wreck. Anya works for a fashion magazine and has some issues with some coworkers that she deals with in her own special was. Dark and over the top funny. The characters aren‘t like able but that didn‘t matter to me at all. I needed know where this was headed. #netgalley
O-M-G... I loved this book. Part of it is definitely the fact that I briefly worked in a fashion related job and am so familiar with these types of people. The other part was all the similarities and parallels to American Psycho. Not only that, but a female serial killer? Yes, please. Especially one who is just crazy and not a victim really herself. This was biting, funny, disturbing, and beyond addictive. #botm
Rating: 5/5 Stars
I am so glad I made this my #BOTM choice this month. This book is so dark and hilarious. I loved the writing style, the fashion world, and the characters. I could not put this book down.
How far would you go to win a friend or someone‘s affection? Anya is working in the fashion world and wants Sarah to be her BFF, but first she must kill whoever gets in her way.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I'm throwing 5 stars at this bloody dark comedy. Almost didn't pick this one, but so happy I did. Anya is legit crazzzy!!!!! You'll find fashion and gore and humor all in one paragraph. I don't think this book is to be taken as seriously as a book like American Psycho, there is a similar vibe but not as yucky. I would compare it to the new show Insatiable on Netflix. Quick read! Under 300 pages! #botm #fashionvictim #darkhumor
Silly, gory and just plain fun! This quick read is an engaging and bloody story that is hard to put down! Definitely a good read for some dark chuckles- one of the more #HumorousBooks that I‘ve read in a while!! And while this isn‘t really my first pick for #NeedsToBeATVShow.... I can see getting totally hooked on it!! #ReadingResolutions #SeptInBooks18 @Jess7 @bookisglee
I don‘t know which one to choose! I want a fast paced but fun read, so I‘m leaning toward #fashionvictim or Cross Her Heart, but The Silence of the Girls sounds like it‘s not one to miss...
I have one credit left and then I have to cancel my #BOTM subscription due to budgeting constraints and I want to make it a good pick!
What do I choose?!
Got off work today and was looking at Instagram and noticed someone showed their September picks for #botm. So, it was nice to get off work and pick my new books. What books will you be picking?
