This is how I kill someone. I learn his habits, I know his schedule. It is not difficult.”


“But boys will be boys, our favorite phrase that excuses so many things, while the only thing we have for the opposite gender is women, said with disdain and punctuated with an eye roll.” 

That's such a good quote!

This book surprised me so very much. It was really, really great. I loved most things with this story and I definitely think that everyone should read this novel.

The Female of the Species is one of the best contemporaries I've read, to be honest. It has a fantastic cast of complex characters, the plot it fast-paced, it handles some really important questions, and it is very emotionally gripping.

What is it about?

Alex Craft knows how to kill someone. And she doesn’t feel bad about it. Three years ago, when her older sister, Anna, was murdered and the killer walked free, Alex uncaged the language she knows best—the language of violence. While her own crime goes unpunished, Alex knows she can’t be trusted among other people. Not with Jack, the star athlete who wants to really know her but still feels guilty over the role he played the night Anna’s body was discovered. And not with Peekay, the preacher’s kid with a defiant streak who befriends Alex while they volunteer at an animal shelter. Not anyone. As their senior year unfolds, Alex’s darker nature breaks out, setting these three teens on a collision course that will change their lives forever.

Have you read this book? What did you think? :)
