Book Review: The 3a.m. Shattered Mums’ Club by Nina Manning

For her social media fans, influencer Sophy has the picture-perfect life. But why does she feel so lonely all the time?

Older mum Mel wasn’t planning on being a mum later in life. What does this all mean for the career that she loved? Can she ever go back?

And Aisha, whose much loved twin boys bring her so much joy, but have caused a rift in her own family that she isn’t sure she can ever fix.

Navigating this new world of motherhood is hard. And the only sanity these three friends have is their 3am mums’ club, where they can chat and support each other in the dark of the night as their babies, finally, finally sleep. 

But in the still of the night, secrets are revealed that could turn all their lives upside down…. more than they already are!


As an expectant mother, I was immediately drawn to this book. However, there were some points that I did regret it. Being a new mother, while great, is going to be a tiring, sometimes stressful experience. But then I fell in love with the characters and the book. It’s always so refreshing to have a book that tells things how they are and not sugarcoat to make things more comfortable for people.

That’s not to say this is a hard book to read, by any means. In fact, it’s such a heartwarming book full of love, friendship and strong women. Each of the characters are so different but it’s also clear why they become such good friends. Regardless of them being new mothers or not, it’s always good to be reminded that there are decent people in this world.
