Deadly Words : a Born Bad Novel
Meghan O’Flynn
4 out of 5 stars

Meghan O’Flynn is an author I’ve read and enjoyed in the past so once I saw Deadly Words I knew I needed to read it. Overall, it did not disappoint. I had a little trouble getting into the book at first, I felt a little lost and as if the storyline was slow to pick up. Despite this, the writing was strong and I could already tell I was invested in Poppy as a character. While the book often felt long, it never got to the point where I found myself bored or disinterested. I feel like Meghan O’Flynn had a unique approach to unraveling plot twists and that
kept me engaged. There were several times I read a line that
really stuck out, whether it was description or metaphor it really
showcased the authors talent on many occasions. I’m addition to the author’s unique writing style I liked Poppy’s sense of humor and really hoped that she would see that while some people do bad things, they aren’t always bad and she too deserves good things. I liked Carsen immediately and was happy to see he played such a big role in the storyline. Even though the book was centered on the daughter of a serial killer, i enjoyed the complexities of the characters and the theme of the story itself, even though people are evil, we still have our version of them and our reasons we love. I am happy that this is the start of a new to
me series and I really look forward to reading more in the future.
