Bad Mommy by Tarryn Fisher
Kindle Edition, 231 pages
Published December 24th 2016
When Fig Coxbury buys a house on West Barrett Street, it’s not because she likes the neighborhood, or even because she likes the house. It’s because everything she desires is next door: The husband, the child, and the life that belongs to someone else.
Bad Mommy is basically a book about a grief induced crazy woman wanting to copy or better term is replace another woman and get her husband, child and pretty much everything about her. It’s told in a three part form with each part a different point of view. As you go along the book, it kind of took away the novelty of the plot. It goes from exciting to a little bit dull and ordinary. The writing used was and always be okay because I’m a little bit bias but the story wasn’t just outright that good for me. I would have liked it even more if it focused on one point of view only and stood by the plot at first and didn’t divulge on other topics which for me were not that relevant to the original plot.
In conclusion, this may have been very well written but it was poorly told. Giving it 3 mediocre royal stars. Pretty sucks because I love Tarryn and I just wish she goes back writing like The Opportunist again. Just raw angst and love. This was a meh for me and this is my first book of the year so you understand my dissappointment. Here’s to me looking forward to greater reads for the year.
