Hi friends! I recently finished Mad Honey by Jodi Picoult and Jennifer Finney Boylan.
*Disclaimer : I received a copy of this ebook for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
Here’s what I thought :
Lily has been through a lot in her life. Bullied in school, and completely humiliated by people she thought were friends. Her father has not been accepting of her choices since she was a child. And now she’s dead.
The telling of Mad Honey was so unique for me. I’ve never read a book that goes forward and backwards in dual pov’s before. I really enjoyed the different perspectives.
Mad Honey is both heart shattering, yet in a way uplifting. How life can be a series of “yes, and” moments. And how sometimes we need to find the strength to leave situations.
Asher and Lily had a typical teenage romance. …to a point. I’m trying to keep this spoiler free so I won’t let you in on all of their secrets.
Teenage romances can be angsty and tumultuous while we are trying to find out who we are and what we want. They are no different.
Olivia and Ava also are grappling with their own inner turmoils of the past that they’ve had to accept and move on from. They are both incredibly likable characters.
Also, if you like learning facts about bees, then you’re in for a real treat.
This was one of the better books I’ve read so far in 2022. 5⭐️
