The Queen of Bloody Everything By Joanna Nadia Book Review
Published in paperback 27th Dec 2018
Joanna Nadin’s first novel for adults, The Queen of Bloody Everything, is about mothers, daughters and how we can make many choices in life but can’t choose where we come from.
As Edie Jones lies in a bed on the fourteenth floor of a Cambridge hospital, her adult daughter Dido tells their story, starting with the day that changed everything.
That was the day Dido – aged exactly six years and twenty-seven days old – met the next door neighbours and fell in love.
Because the Trevelyans were exactly the kind of family Dido dreamed of.
My Quick Review.
What a sweet, nostalgic nod to childhood. Loved this book!
We go through the life of Dido, the one she was born into and the one she tries to live.
Such believable characters. True, honest, funny, sweet, I could go on.
Hard to write about plot of the book without spoiling it. If you haven’t read it yet, read it now!!
