Review: Never Have I Ever by Joshilyn Jackson


Well look at that, a gripping title for a psycho-thriller that completely lived up to its promise of a gripping read.

I find the cover really brilliant. A subtle use of juxtaposition. Outside it appears like a harmless, really peaceful, cute little village where the neighborhood is friendly and everyone knows everyone. Except that’s far from the truth because almost everyone is keeping a dark secret they’d rather have buried with them. Of course, someone is set on using these secrets against them disturbing the feigned peace the community is trying to portray.

The twists keep popping up naturally in the plot genuinely surprising me everytime. No making the reader anticipate wicked twists and all that, relying on unreliable narrators.

These are the best mysteries, really. There is a single plot and it follows the natural line and yet it’s still a very unique read. In the end, everything makes sense. Even as I was thinking about loopholes questioning the characters motives before I went to bed, I couldn’t find one. I would always answer my own questions logically based on the events in the story.

Hi! I'm Aj from the Philippines. Obviously I love to read and write and from years of experience I have learned that when you love something so much, you would do it absolutely for free so here I am writing stuff for all people to see in the hopes that at least one or maybe two souls could benefit or get little inspiration from what they will read from this blog. Enjoy and spread the love! ;)
