Book review: Mother May I by Joshilyn Jackson

Saturday, May 1, 2021 Permalink

Although I’m really REALLY tired of books about mothers and children: those going missing, squabbling between couples, parenting issues and the like, this book is very much in my wheelhouse. I hadn’t planned to read the entire thing when I got into the bath with my copy but – for the first time in a long time – I deferred cooking dinner to keep reading.

I read Jackson’s previous book Never Have I Ever and it was similarly themed around motherhood, relationships, secrets and revenge.  For most of this novel I was riveted and and it was really only the direction this book takes that left me disappointed, which (I guess) means Jackson sucked me in big-time.
