Cheri Reviews Nightbitch by Rachel Yoder

Nightbitch by Rachel Yoder

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Wow. I mean… wow.

I received the ebook ARC for this one but wasn’t in the right frame of mind whenever I thought about actually reading it. So when I saw it on Audible a while back, I bought it. And Cassandra Campbell is a great narrator.

I finally started listening yesterday and just got sucked right in. I’m certain I’ve never read anything quite like Nightbitch. Also, I fucking love the name of the book and how the main character (and only POV character) refers to herself as Nightbitch.

The first at least half of the book struck me as a call out for the importance of birth control for heterosexual females. It still makes me feel incredibly grateful that our son was raised in a two-mom household. But as the book moved on, and Nightbitch discovered her own power and strength, it’s much less about how shitty parenthood can be for women.

I will absolutely read this one again. Just to catch the small things I missed the first time. There were lots of laughs mixed in with the gruesomeness, too. And lots of howling. Such beautiful howling!

Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for bringing this interesting, smart, and unique book to my attention.
