Free download ueenie AUTHOR Candice Carty-Williams ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB 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

Free download ueenie AUTHOR Candice Carty-Williams ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB 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. 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 ueenie and her Jamaican grandparents This is everything I would have expected from a book being compared to Bridget Jones s DiaryWhich is why I feel like I need to issue a warning this book goes to some really dark places Bridget Jones is klutzy and embarrassing ueenie is a far complex and real character She is dealing with mental health issues and a post relationship breakdown The decisions she makes like having unprotected sex with lots of different men are clearly not healthy I know some readers will feel frustrated with her behaviour at times but I also think the author never portrays it as a good thing and instead honestly portrays a young woman dealing with severe anxiety in the only way she feels she can I think it s a good example of some very serious issues being wrapped up in a book that is full of humour to balance out the sadnessueenie has just broken up with her long term boyfriend Tom who is white Through flashbacks we soon learn that their relationship was pretty messed up from the start with Tom refusing to defend her against his family s casual racism ueenie doesn t see it that way though This break up has hit her hard She responds to it by hooking up with guys and having various datingsexual encounters that are a mixture of hilarious and cringy Carty Williams explores dating anxiety and racism through the eyes of a modern day Jamaican Brit and she does it all with a sense of humour and no aversion to cringe factor Oversharing at inappropriate moments dating disasters and witty badass girlfriends are just some of the sources of hilarity in this book I think the serious issues are actually impactful because of their juxtaposition with the humour and friendshipNo this isn t another Bridget Jones s Diary but then we re not living in the 90s any either ueenie is bolder complicated diverse and ultimately feminist And I see nothing to complain about in thatBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube
