Hi. Today I am reviewing Kill for Love by Laura Picklesimer, I think it is.

And you can’t see the cover. Sorry about that. I read it on my Kobo. Yeah. Boy, wow. This is a very dark sort of satire, I think, of sorority life. And this girl who’s just out of control, man, she is out there killing people. And I’m not giving anything away that’s not revealed right away, I don’t think. You just watch this woman kind of, I don’t know, sashay through life, just taking great joy in killing people. Killing guys specifically. And then there’s this boyfriend of hers, Weston. I keep wanting to call him something else like Westlake or Westfall. I kept confusing his name, but his name is Weston, which is a very interesting name. I don’t know why. It just sounds so Weh-stahn, so formal. I think that name was chosen to sound kind of like a formal douche or something, you know what I mean?

Anyway, ole Weston really takes a lot of abuse from this woman. I mean, she’s just like, Ugh. There’s something very toxic about her. But at the same time, something very funny about her and just, it’s like watching a car crash or something. It’s just like fascinatingly horrid is the best way to put it. Anyway, for those of us who enjoy fascinating and horrible, you may enjoy this book actually. I mean, I read it all the way through and I was just very interested to see how this woman would end up. And I’d have to say that this comes very squarely under the heading of Noir. If you ask me, boy does it. So if you like noirish crime fiction with women who are just … barely tolerable as people. There you go. I mean, that’s what it is. It just explores a really dark side of this horrible relationship and these people. And so with that, I will just end my review. There, I said it. Okay. Thank you. And I’ll talk to you later. And

Yeah, if you enjoy that stuff, do read the book. It’s fun for what it is. Laura Picklesimer? Yeah, Laurel Picklesimer. I hope I’m pronouncing that right. Take care and I’ll talk to you later.
