Queenie was funny, she was smart, and she was deeply flawed and I loved that. Candice did a great job of depicting what life is like for Black women and how it often feels like we have the weight of the world on our shoulders but the only choice we have is to grin and bear it until we can’t take it anymore. Her story was raw and real. I loved the family members and her friends that were such an integral part of her life and healing. The mental health aspect and therapy was amazing. Kyazike was probably my favorite but Maggie was also hilarious. I listened to this as an audiobook and loved how the narrator told the story. 4.5 ⭐️’s for the audiobook.

The book is equal parts a horror story and equal parts about colonialism, inter generational trauma, and the struggle of fitting in as a first-generation American, both in America and in their home country. It also has a sprinkle of a coming of age story. I truly enjoyed this book and I also got the chance to learn more about Vietnam and some of the experiences of Asian American families. 5 ⭐️’s.
She Is a Haunting

I’ve been waiting for this book to be released since January and it did not disappoint. Delicious Monsters didn’t have an ending that I expected. It’s a story that sticks with you.

This is by far my favorite audiobook. I had to keep reminding myself that Cara wasn’t a real person because all I kept saying was, “Cara, WHAT?!” The story was so funny and I loved the realistic elements in the audiobook that made it feel more conversational. Cara was funny, she was loving, she’s been through A LOT, but she was also flawed. I loved that she got a little taste of a happy ending. The author gave a funny spin to a story about a woman who immigrated to the U.S. to flee a violent past and found a family in the neighbors in her building. 5 ⭐️’s for the audiobook version.
