Bad Mommy / I Can Be A Better You by Tarryn Fisher
Publication Date: January 12, 2017
Book Summary: 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.
Book Review: BAD MOMMY, which is now named I CAN BE A BETTER YOU, by Tarryn Fisher just ruined my life. How will I be able to move on from this book masterpiece!? After reading this twisted tale, I’ll start with saying bitches are cray. It just makes you question, are the people in your life genuine, or are they all wearing masks?
The story opens up with Fig, and her obsession over the picture perfect family in her neighborhood. When the house next door goes on sale, Fig makes it her goal to move in and copycat the life she’s always wanted. Little did I know, that was just the beginning. I loved every moment getting to know each character, even the ones I loathed. The characterization for each individual was spot on. They all were featured in a way where as a reader, I was given the chance to unlayer the traits of each person.
As I read, the unexpected occurrences left me open mouthed and gasping for more as I stormed through the chapters. This psychological thriller fucked me mentally and I couldn’t believe this was my first time picking up a novel by Tarryn. I should kick myself for not reading her work sooner. Her extraordinary writing enveloped me into a crazy cocoon and didn’t let me go until the end.
If you’re looking for a novel that’ll mess with your emotions, then you need to pick up BAD MOMMY immediately! One of the best thrillers I’ve read thus far. I must own every book she has ever written, being that I’ve officially added Tarryn to my list of favorite authors. She is one talented cookie that’ll grab the reader by the horns and drag them down into the darkest part of the human mind.
