Review ueenie by Candice Carty-Williams

Bridget Jones’s Diary meets Americanah in this disarmingly honest boldly political and truly inclusive novel that will speak to anyone who has gone looking for love and found something very different in its placeueenie Jenkins is a 25 year old Jamaican British woman living in London straddling two cultures and slotting neatly into neither She works at a nat. This is the kind of novel whose excellence sneaks up on you The beginning is kind of rocky and I wasn t sure where the book was going but then it gets great and unputdownable and I held my breath reading as fast as I could to see what would happen to ueenie This is an amazing novel about what it means to be a black girl whose world is falling apart and needs to find the strength to put it back together There is so much ground covered here from dealing with anxiety and self loathing to complicated families and learning to let go of things and people that won t serve you well And ueenie is the kind of narrator you cannot help but root for even as she makes infuriating choices Wonderful wonderful novel full of charm and wit and warmth and energy Check it out

ueenie by Candice Carty-Williams

Ional newspaper where she’s constantly forced to compare herself to her white middle class peers After a messy break up from her long term white boyfriend ueenie seeks comfort in all the wrong placesincluding several hazardous men who do a good job of occupying brain space and a bad job of affirming self worthAs ueenie careens from one uestionable decision. ueenie is the newest debut sensation coming out of the UK by Candace Carte Williams Sadly it was not my cup of tea for a few reasons Firstly the good things about the book are the writing especially the natural dialogue and the fact that ueenie does get that mental health care that she so desperately needs However as a whole this book is based on too many black women stereotypes I really feel the author should have toned that down I m also not enjoying that this book is being pitched as the black Bridget Jones Diary These two books aren t alike at all ueen was not a comedy for me I feel like it s an exploration of how a black woman watching abuse as a child and being abused affect her choices of men later on The book s concentration on ueenie s promiscuous lifestyle at times was hard to read and certainly was not funny I would even say it could be triggering to some readers Since the book is being pitched as humorous in the UK I had to ask myself who the target audience is supposed to be The author doesn t seem to disagree with that pitch because I haven t seen her say the contrary I also feel the cover was another way to attract black women to want to read ueen although knowing what s in between the covers I believe many black women would pass on it I don t recommend it

To another she finds herself wondering “What are you doing Why are you doing it Who do you want to be” all of the uestions today’s woman must face in a world trying to answer them for herWith “fresh and honest” Jojo Moyes prose ueenie is a remarkably relatable exploration of what it means to be a modern woman searching for meaning in today’s world. A tiresome novel that made me cranky Everything about ueenie screams middle school angst ueenie and her crew think and act like 12 year olds trapped in 25 year old bodies Take away some of the sex replace their jobs with 7th grade classes and you have the tedious dramas of adolescence I liked the clever use of texts That s about it

    He put a hand on my thigh and moved it higher digging his nails into my skin That'll be a pair of tights gone This book is a bit deceiving ueenie is such a funny and lovable character with what I think of as a very British sense of humour The book opens with multiple scenes that made me laugh and the author uickly builds up a warm and hilarious dynamic between ueenie and her girlfriends the Corgis and between

    I empathized a lot with the protagonist and her struggles along with the portrayal of mental health including the cultural stigma of seeking therapy how childhood affects the way we treat relationships how we internalize racism and learn to love ourselves as a WOC etc The audiobook narrator also did a great job at bringing the story to life I struggle to emotionally connect with this book as much as I should
