Book Review: The Perfect Mother by Aimee Molloy

Hey everyone, hope you all are doing well! Weather has been crazy here in Texas. It feels like it's getting to be summer here, but it's supposed to go back down to the 30s this weekend. I have been in the process of getting a home that should be closed on by next week. And I get to have my Bell Library! *Eeeep*. If you follow me on Instagram, I will be definitely giving my followers a tour.

Anyways, I read this really intriguing book in January. I became part of an online book club that my sister-in-law invited me too. A little off topic, but I am thinking of making my own book club. What do you guys think? Let me know in the comments below! Here is my review on The Perfect Mother by Aimee Molloy. SPOILER ALERT!

A Little Bit of Background


Aimee Molloy is a journalist and co-author of five books. The Perfect Mother is her first novel that recently debuted in 2018. I could not find too much about this author, but hopefully, I can do an interview with her on here soon!

The Perfect Mother is a New York Times Instant Bestseller. The story takes place in modern day New York where you meet a group of mother's called the May Mother's whose babies are all due in May. Hence May Mothers. The group decides to go out for one night and one of the mother's, Winnie, mysteriously isn't seen the night her baby, Midas, is kidnapped from the babysitter. 

What Was Enjoyable


This book will definitely hook you in from the very beginning. The reader becomes entrapped in this

small, Brooklyn, mommy world. From the characters, to the scenes presented, to everything in between, there's just not a boring part of this book.

You will be guessing who took baby Midas and what happened to him the whole time. I guess this kind of goes with my first statement, but this definitely helps you turn the page. Who is kidnapper? Why did they take him? Who took him? These questions are going to overpopulate your head, and some readers enjoy books that make them think and become their own little detective. Guilty!

What Was Least Enjoyable


The only problem I had with this book were the multitude of characters at the beginning. Because there were quite a few faces, it was hard for me to deipher who was who at first. But about the 7th chapter, I go everyone down.

Overall


Overall, this was a pretty good book to start my year off with. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a quick read, because even though it's 336 pages, you'll  be reading through this book ike you're reading a novella. Until next time my lovelies, Happy Reading!
