We Slay Book Club April Pick

Family of Lies by Mary Monroe

I think I knew deep down that I was not going to like this book. I rarely read AF-AM and from what I've heard, Mary Monroe is not my cup of tea. This is the only book I've read by her and one is definitely enough. The dialogue, the characters, the plot; everything was just awful. I hated every person and every thing that they did. I wish I had left this book club pick unread.


Family of Lies read like a very bad soap opera, not even so bad it's good, it's just bad. I've read her other works, so I do like her writing, The characters were so trope-tastic I found myself rolling my eyes at some of the decisions the characters made. Commonsense was no one's friend in this book. This was not my cup of tea, but I am sure someone will enjoy it.
