Is this stalkerish?! Am I obsessed? Maybe I need to make an appointment with Darius. I wonder how Darius would diagnose me? Perhaps he’d think I was just a little bit stalkerish but not full-blown crazy stalker? Or better yet, I’d have Jolene observe me, what would she think? What would Fig and her loony eyes see when they looked at me?
I’m going to put my obsession aside for a moment. Can we talk about this insanity I just read from you? First, I think you’re brilliant and maybe a little crazy. Second, I’m a little bit scared of you, but I’m more scared of your observers. Third, I’m in awe of you and your top knot and your words and your brain and your storytelling and, my god, I hope not a word of this story is true because … I keep picturing Misery and hearing the shower scene music from Psycho. Why are people so g-ddamn crazy? It’s a question I ask often.
I can’t say much else because I want your observers, I mean readers, to go into this book without knowing much about Fig or Jolene or Darius. They should just know that your twisted tale and creepy characters were exhilarating and made my cold black heart start and stop over and over. Bad Mommy is basically a freaking Christmas miracle that everyone needs to read. It's like you gave me the best present ever so thank you for that. And even if I have to wait another year for a new masterpiece from you, I’ll do so patiently while I stalk your insta. Your words are worth the wait.
The story is written in three different parts. Each part is told from the perspective of one of the three main characters in first person narration. Each part seamlessly follows a continuous timeline instead of telling the same events three different ways. This technique adds another element of depth that is unique and interesting. Like peeling back the layers of an onion, Tarryn slowly adds more dimension to the story line with each new perspective. The story is well-paced and doesn’t lull at any point. The tension continues to build from the start all the way to the very last word. It is also very plausible. At no point did I feel like this couldn’t actually happen. There were twists to the story, but not the ones I was expecting. Overall, I’m very satisfied in the direction the plot went and how it ended.
Tarryn Fisher has quickly become one of my most favorite authors because she has a unique way of unfolding a story. She also has an exceptional ability to write characters that are so complex and well-developed that they feel like real people. The characters in Bad Mommy are no exception. They are flawed and beautifully human. The characters are The Psychopath, The Sociopath, and The Writer (I think it should have been The Enabler, but whatevs I get it). I honestly felt a connection with each of them.
All in all, Bad Mommy is a fantastic story that feels like it could be very real. There are plenty of twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat. The writing is phenomenal and the plot is very realistic. Great read!!
Fig was obviously phsycho from page one. I didn't hate her, I just thought she was sick... Then the book kept going... 0n some levels I could relate with the characters, while on others I couldn't, so I was caught off guard by some of their actions (that sounds negative, but it definitely isn't). I whispered, "Oh sh*t..." under my breath more than a few times. The three separate POVs I also loved. It brought a new shade of light to the story with each perspective.
I don't think I rolled my eyes or thought, "Well that was kinda dumb" once... which is rare for me. I can't think of anything I didn't like really. If I HAD to be nitpicky and say anything it would be that Jolene doesn't like things of extreme popularity, but wears a Nirvana shirt and has a Kurt Cobain magazine, but like I said, that's digging for something.
I thought the ending was quite clever as well. This is the first time I've read this author and I will definitely do so again.
Bad Mommy is Bad A$$!!!!
Tarryn Fisher...ur mind is Bad A$$!!! lol
This book was sooo freaking good...Can you tell with all the Bad A$$ Comments?? lol
I just know that when I am reading a book, and its pretty early on in the chapters that they start talking about the lead woman or man is seeing a Shrink....ummm its probably going to be a pretty good book. And yesss this book was sooo good and I could hardly put it down. I even listened to it when I was driving to Sulphur Springs yesterday. This book definitely made that drive sooo much better!!!
Sooo yalll...don't be like me and wait to read this one. It definitely needs to be moved up your TBR if you have not picked it up yet. Its such a nice little mind effery!!! lol That's a word right?
