#BookReview: How to Kill Men and Get Away With It by Katy Brent

Synopsis: Meet Kitty Collins.


He was following me. That guy from the nightclub who wouldn’t leave me alone.

I hadn’t intended to kill him of course. But I wasn’t displeased when I did and, despite the mess I made, I appeared to get away with it.

That’s where my addiction started…

I’ve got a taste for revenge and quite frankly, I’m killing it.

A deliciously dark, hilariously twisted story about friendship, love, and murder. Fans of My Sister the Serial KillerHow to Kill Your Family and Killing Eve will love this wickedly clever novel!


Rating: 3 Stars
My Review: I tried so hard to love this one. But sadly this one wasn't for me.  I felt that the humor was spot on but the characters and the actual story were kind of meh.  The main character was kind of irritating and well I kind of hated her. Overall, this one sounded really good but the execution just didn't get away with it.
