CJR The Brit Review: Birds of Paradise by Anne Malcom


My love for this author knows no bounds. Not only do I count her as a friend but she has a gift. And this book just proves it.

Here is the blurb:

He collected beautiful things.
Rare things.
Ripped them out of their natural environment and preserved them in all of their dead splendor.
The problem was I wasn’t beautiful. I was all of the hideous and ugly realities of the world packaged into one broken human being.
He came to kill me.
That was his business.
He ripped me out of my natural environment, the prison I’d created, and locked me away with all of his beautiful dead things.
I hated him.
I still hate him.
But if I was given the choice and the ability to leave this cage, come back to life, I’d stay dead.
In all of my hideous splendor.
Because my murderer can only possess dead things.
And I can only be possessed by someone more broken and ugly than me.


I really didn’t know anything about this story before I started. I read the blurb so knew that it was dark…..and I love the dark and I love this author!
I’m not saying much more because you need to read this book. Take it from me, it is nothing short of utterly fabulous. It will tear at your heartstrings and parts of you that you never knew existed.
PS: The lead guy in this? I swear he was just meant for me! I want him to call me solnyshko!
‘The time for destruction is now.’
