Queenie visits with Sir Rumsey to plead for her uncle's job back, but he does so under the condition Queenie sleeps with him.

When she realizes that he has lied to her, she storms out of the mansion, but not before he falls over a balcony and falls to his death.

Once at home, Queenie tells her mother and uncle what happened, Jones and Queenie depart for England. Lost in London, Queenie finds a career as a stripper.

Later, she makes her way to Hollywood , where she is renamed Dawn Avalon. Avalon becomes one of the biggest stars in Hollywood.

The author did an amazing job of addressing this issue. I feel the comparison to Bridget Jones Diary is a long stretch. The only thing Queenie and Bridget have in common is that they live in London and are bad at love.

Queenie is a way more complex character and while the book started out very shallow, things got deeper in the end. Overall this book will be open to a lot of reader interpretation.

I do see a lot of people either loving it or being underwhelmed- it is too hard to not like a character like Queenie.

Queenie is a glutton for punishment, seeking easy forms of it nearly everywhere she goes. She works at a newspaper and wants to write about current issues like racial tension in both the UK and U.

She gets in trouble at wor Meet Queenie a 25 year old Jamaican Brit living in London, who has been asked to move out of the apartment by her white boyfriend, Tom, who insists they need a break.

She gets in trouble at work for not working enough and engaging inappropriately with a coworker. The racism Queenie dealt with at work and in day to day life was frustrating and sadly, is still timely.

Gina would make condescending comments and so would the many men she interacted with, including one who dismissed the importance of the Black Lives Matter movement and others who fetishize her because she was Black.

It was difficult to sympathize with her at times when she continued to make poor decisions, again and again.

At one point she mentions her friends being tired of her and her problems and I thought, well how could they not be? Queenie did grow on me though and I enjoyed her character progression.

I liked her friend, Kyazike, as well as her grandparents — While they were definitely old-fashioned, you could tell they cared about her and I found their dialogue together comical.

Calling Queenie a late bloomer coming of age story seems accurate as she was certainly not child but still addressing her identity and finding her footing as an adult.

Queenie, our main character, goes through so many relatable experiences: struggling to find an affordable place to live in a gentrified city, partaking in mediocre to outright awful dates with men, and texting her best friend squad when life goes awry.

I loved how Candice Carty-Williams centers the black female experience in Queenie , by showing how Queenie encounters racism in the form of people touching her hair without her consent and her white fema Such a relevant book for the millennial era!

I loved how Candice Carty-Williams centers the black female experience in Queenie , by showing how Queenie encounters racism in the form of people touching her hair without her consent and her white female boss tone-policing her, the internalized stigma her family has toward therapy, all of the microaggressions her romantic interests perpetrated, and much more.

In an interview Carty-Williams writes about how part of what inspired this book included how she struggled to see herself represented in books, and I commend her for fighting to put forth Queenie into the world given the overwhelmingly white composition of the publishing industry and books published today.

The way Carty-Williams wrote her mental breakdown and the early stages of her therapy felt so realistic, both based on my experience as someone who has worked through my own PTSD and as someone who now provides therapy.

Black women are often expected to be strong and resilient , and while Queenie does embody those traits, she also gets anxious and makes impulsive, self-destructive decisions and takes more than an optimal amount of time to say bye to trash male romantic interests, potential or otherwise.

Carty-Williams affords Queenie the space to mess up and be human while also showing her gradual yet significant path to recovery.

Definitely recommended for those who enjoy realistic fiction. View all 6 comments. Shelves: popsugar-reading-challenge , june-reads , aty-challenge , 1-star-books.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. She is depicted as lazy, promiscuous, desperate, and broke.

The first chapter was fine and then the rest was just awful. A lot of the reviews I have seen are talking about Queenie being a hot mess.

Either that or angry black women. But you teach people how to treat you and she was letting anyone treat her anyway that they would like.

The way that the story is framed is problematic from the start because she is heartbroken about her boyfriend who is making her move out of their shared apartment.

Her New Year's Resolutions are about being nicer to people and getting back with Tom. She literally has let people use her like a doormat.

I understand the Jamaican against therapy thing. Reading this was traumatizing. Every sentence seems to denigrate her. Writing in her notebook is soiling it, throwing some glitter on her face instead of taking care of herself.

She is off for a long holiday and she just binges and cleans up after other people. Slipping the black lives matter stuff in this narrative feels so forced.

The author alludes to Queenie being overlooked at work because she is black. She has a full-on hour argument with one of her dates after going home with him about racism.

For one sentence. Why bother give an explanation at all if you are going to gloss over it? It can hardly be surmised that a person will steer clear of an entire race of people because childhood trauma with one person.

I mean, come on. Characters: Cassandra is a bad friend Seriously asking if a restaurant is black enough and you make her the voice of reason who then turns her back on Queenie for sleeping with her boyfriend.

But we are just accepting this. It happens so close to the end of the book that it just feels like lazy writing and further evidence that Queenie has no respect for herself.

Darcy is the only work friend who is not awful and yet we get no character development for her. She is simply a non-problematic foil for Queenie.

Tom is awful for the aforementioned reasons see paragraph 3 , Ted is a married man with a pregnant wife who has sex with Queenie in the office toilets and then hounds her until he finally corners her to talk to her and then writes her a letter demanding that she not tell his wife.

Adi fetishizes her body and has sex with her and then bad mouths her in front of his wife in the street. Courtney, the guy Queenie goes on a date with after she starts therapy, is an all lives matter guy who believes in reverse racism.

Even Sid the drummer has difficulty with understanding the word no. What is this? The Ending Everything just get wrapped up; which Queenie literally recounts in the bathroom mirror at the end of the book.

I am at a lot for words as to why this was so well received. This book is an embarrassment. This book is a dangerous thing.

This book could have been something that black women could read and feel inspired to change and grow and soar. Jun 09, Carol Bookaria rated it really liked it Shelves: favorites , new-adult , top , fiction , Compelling, deep, and ultimately heartwarming.

When I started reading this book, I thought it would be about dating and breaking up in the modern world. But as the story developed, it became clear our main character was walking though a confusing and challenging road.

I can't say much about the plot without getting into spoilers but I absolutely enjoyed this novel, it was so much more than what it is mentioned in the description.

This novel is all about the journey, growing up, forgiveness, and Compelling, deep, and ultimately heartwarming.

This novel is all about the journey, growing up, forgiveness, and family. I enjoyed it and highly recommend it to readers of contemporary fiction.

Except, you know, this show actually has black people in it. The tagline for Queenie states it is Bridget Jones meets Americanah - a book which I have not yet read, but do own because.

You then follow her as she moves physically from a shared flat to eventually back home with her grandparents and as she moves psychologically from a mindset full of self-sabotage mainly of the horrifying casual sex variety to admitting she needs some mental help and coming to terms with the upbringing that helped propel her poor decision making.

I loved Queenie — despite all of her flaws. She was a little Bridget Jones. I bought it myself. If nothing else, we could all stand to learn that.

This book came at the right time for me. Can draw so many parallels between myself and Queenie Update: I loved this book the second time around. I wish the author delved more into why Queenie felt the way she did about Black men, and her mom's issues.

I think a follow-up to this book would be a good idea for the author. So this book basically ripped my heart out and served it to me on a platter.

Oh the feels… Authentic, visceral, honest, painful, hilarious… Simply genius. And I think what was so brilliant about this book is that Queenie is possibly one of the most relatable contemporary characters that you could ever hope to read about.

She feels real. She is far from being a perfect human being because she makes seriously dodgy decisions that are pretty shady and at times is b So this book basically ripped my heart out and served it to me on a platter.

She is far from being a perfect human being because she makes seriously dodgy decisions that are pretty shady and at times is borderline narcissistic even… But she is so amazingly likeable in spite of all of this.

Not that likability should matter but I just think that writing a flawed character that people can see both the best and worst of themselves in and yet is someone that as a reader you wish you were best friends with is a skill that needs to be praised….

The storyline follows her as she deals with a break from her boyfriend Tom and struggles at work. And in following both her work and personal life we see how deeply the two are interlinked and how Queenie is affected by past relationships both romantic and business.

Highly recommended. Four and a half stars rounded up. View all 4 comments. Feb 26, Fadwa Word Wonders added it Shelves: reads , favorites , contemporary , releases , adult , neurodivergency-mental-illness-rep , poc-indigenous-rep , ownvoices.

I think. The more I'll sit on this book the more I'll love it and it'll end up becoming an all time favorite of mine. I think that, as it is, it'll very probably make my favorite books of list because of real and genuine it is.

Queenie is a book that does every single thing it attempts to do right. The exploration of break-ups, friendships, both CW: Anxiety, depression, PTSD, child abuse, self-destructive behavior especially through sex, work place harassment, racism, gaslighting, fatphobia.

The exploration of break-ups, friendships, both good and bad, work place wins and losses, messy family dynamics, racist micro and macro-aggressions, society's views on Black bodies and especially Black women, but my favorite of all and the reason this book has blown me away, is the mental health exploration.

I think it's the best and most relatable I have ever read in my life. And I think that the main reason for that is that it features a Black woman going through the motions of life with a deteriorating mental state, while everyone perceives her as invincible and while simultaneously dealing with every other things that comes with being Black.

And I just Especially because of the fact that it also dove head on with how mental illnesses are treated and approached in Black communities, with how taboo it is and many hoops people need to jump through to seek and get help.

In addition to that I liked how the book showed a step by step of Queenie's struggles with mental health, from when she was still in denial about her mental health state and trying to hide it and deal with it on her on, to her seeking treatment and getting better, going through all the motions of self-destructive behavior, self-isolation, loss of motivation, panic attacks and so on and so forth.

And my favorite part? It not only tells you that recovery isn't linear and that it can be ugly and messy but it also shows that it's peppered with setbacks and one setback doesn't mean you're getting worse again.

And all of these serious topics are topped with humor that had me cracking up and counter-balanced the sometimes heaviness of it. Queenie's relationship with her best friend was seriously the best to read about, and I loved how this book showed that trauma is intergenerational and your own can blind you to other people's, but it also shows that relationships can be mended even when they seem irreparable, and that with the right support system, you can go far, and even when some are reluctantly part of it, they eventually come around and their support is unconditional.

This book surprised the shit out of me, because the marketing copy led me to believe I was getting something other than what it turned out to be.

I even wrote a blurb when I was halfway through this one, thinking that it would be perfect for readers of rom-coms like The Wedding Date.

The marketing copy pitches this as a cross of Bridget Jones and Americanah because it features a quirky, unlucky-in-love black woman who wants to be a journalist covering the Black Lives Matter movement from her Brit This book surprised the shit out of me, because the marketing copy led me to believe I was getting something other than what it turned out to be.

But, no, that's not really what this book was in the end. What it was was actually so much better than that. It's about Queenie, a black woman in London who, yes, is unlucky in love and wants to advance her journalism career by covering the Black Lives Matter movement.

But it's ultimately about Queenie's journey of self-discovery as a woman outside of her identity as an object of men's attention. It's wildly empowering in a thoroughly unexpected way.

When we first meet Queenie, she and her long-time boyfriend Tom are agreeing to try going on a break. He wants it more than she does, so she continues to reach out to him occasionally and is hurt when it's consistently met by radio silence.

Despite the fact that she desperately wants to get back together, she responds to this rejection by sleeping with as many inappropriate men as she can find, no matter how terrible this makes her feel.

Yes, this does sound like the set-up of a stereotypical haphazard romantic comedy in the vein of Bridget Jones , but the thing about this book is, without getting too spoilery, that Queenie begins to recognize how problematic her behavior is and she fucking does something about it.

When is the last time you read that in a book that gets marketed as "chick lit"? Queenie is a phenomenal character because her journey feels so real.

Her emotional baggage is not only relatable, but it's ultimately fleshed out in a way that feels authentic and not forced.

While her personal growth feels a bit rushed at times, given how deep her pain goes, it's done in a way that is brutally honest.

There's no sugar-coating here: Queenie has to acknowledge less-than-flattering aspects of herself and figure out how to deal with them.

There are some aspects of Queenie's life that felt a bit glossed over—the roommates that she moves in with are barely acknowledged and the extent of her problematic sexual exploits is covered in a few sentences that sort of minimize their magnitude—but I was able to forgive that one quibble because of how much I appreciated the frankness with which Candice Carty-Williams explored the hard work of battling mental health struggles.

She doesn't just use depression or anxiety as a catch-all term to show that Queenie has some minor problems—she lays out exactly how Queenie experiences the real symptoms of these issues, how they're rooted in her family history, and the real techniques she learns to combat them.

And at the same time, the book doesn't feel too touchy-feely or didactic. The tone stays relatively light-hearted; Queenie's relationship with the Corgis is admirable and often hilarious.

The book recognizes when Queenie's behavior is problematic even when she doesn't, but it treats her with empathy and understanding.

Which is, honestly, something that we could all stand to learn to do a little better. A great read, highly recommended.

Just don't go in expecting it to be "the black Bridget Jones " like the publishers seem to want you to do, Nov 24, Beverly rated it really liked it Shelves: coming-of-age-novel.

I received Queenie free in a Goodreads giveaway! I am really glad I got it too as it is a compelling story with a lovely cover, Queenie's name is embossed in her braids.

There is no face on the cover though and I think the illustrator is being very clever. Queenie does not know who she is and lets others decide for her in most areas of her life.
