So, there’s good news and bad news. The good news: I loved this book. The bad news: This book will not be released until June!
Victoria Christopher Murray’s Greed: A Seven Deadly Sins Novel will have your emotions on 10! You’ll be rolling your eyes at the mess going on in here! We readers can see what’s coming, but our protagonist simply cannot because of her, you guessed it, greed. In short, VCM put her foot in this one.
The quick rundown: Zuri is like a lot of us. She’s hardworking, educated, and tired of being just above broke. Despite the lack of money, she’s content. With her boo by her side, she knows they will be able to live the life of their dreams one day, just like her best friend and her husband.
There’s always some ish, isn’t it? The devil is always busy.
That’s all I’m gonna say because you need to read this book.
If you can’t tell by now, I enjoyed this book immensely. I loved it because it’s relatable and relevant, especially in this social media age. If you’ve read VCM books, you already know how this goes. The Seven Deadly Sins books always have a message or several for us to learn from or reflect on. This one resonated with me a great deal because I’ve been through what Zuri has, and I also experienced the consequences of wanting more and being around the wrong people. Zuri, Zuri, Zuri! Chile! She infuriated me to no end because I knew what was coming. However, being a human, we often cannot see clearly when we’re in certain situations, and our wants overrule our rationality. This book has also reminded me to trust my instincts. Sometimes we need a reminder all isn’t always as it seems.
In closing, read it. If you like Victoria Christopher Murray books, you’ll love this.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher to read and review. Thank you!
