Big Little Lies
Big Little Lies | Liane Moriarty
Check out the #1New York TimesbestsellerBig Little Lies by Liane Moriarty, called a surefire hit by Entertainment Weekly."The secrets burrowed in this seemingly placid small town...are so suburban noir they would make David Lynch clap with glee...[Moriarty] is a fantastically nimble writer, so sure-footed that the book leaps between dark and light seamlessly; even the big reveal in the final pages feels earned and genuinely shocking. Entertainment Weekly"Reading one [ofLiane Moriarty's novels] is a bit like drinking a pink cosmo laced with arsenic... [BIG LITTLE LIES] is a fun, engaging and sometimes disturbing read USA TodaySometimes its the little lies that turn out to be the most lethal. . . .A murder . . . a tragic accident . . . or just parents behaving badly? Whats indisputable is that someone is dead. But who did what?Big Little Lies follows three women, each at a crossroads:Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. Shes funny and biting, passionate, she remembers everything and forgives no one. Her ex-husband and his yogi new wife have moved into her beloved beachside community, and their daughter is in the same kindergarten class as Madelines youngest (how is this possible?). And to top it all off,Madelines teenage daughter seems to be choosing Madelines ex-husband over her. (How. Is. This. Possible?).Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare. While she may seem a bit flustered at times, who wouldnt be, with those rambunctious twin boys? Now that the boys are starting school, Celeste and her husband look set to become the king and queen of the school parent body. But royalty often comes at a price, and Celeste is grappling with how much more she is willing to pay.New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and harbors secret doubts about her son. But why? While Madeline and Celeste soon take Jane under their wing, none of them realizes how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all.Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.

After all of the hype from the mini-series, I finally read this. Enjoyed quite a bit--dark and funny--my favorite combination! Does this mean I'll see the series? We'll see. I'm a stickler for always preferring the book over the movie.

Favorite Quote: “It was interesting how you could say things when you were walking that you might not otherwise have said with the pressure of eye contact across a table.”

I have put this book off for so long. I started the show forever ago but never finished it. I'm glad I finally got the push to push to pick it up!

So much more enjoyable than I expected it to be. A little on the predictable side but also a little twist or two I wasn't quite expecting. I'd read the author again!

This was a fantastic listen. Imagine the elementary parents‘ group at their absolute cattiest. It‘s like playing a game of telephone, with the worst possible outcome. There are laugh-out-loud moments and plenty of aggravating ones. (I‘m so glad my last child is almost out of high school, and we can leave these types of back-biting social climbers behind, for good.) This is another great read from Liane Moriarty. Highly recommend.

A sad story of the violence done to women and how it affects their lives and those around them. There‘s also a mystery in the background of someone‘s death. Hope also runs in the background. It dragged in some places but I‘m glad I stayed with it.

I didn‘t know what to expect but I thought the novel would be a little soapy with a lot of drama. “Oh calamity!” I was right. It took way too long for me to care what happened at the trivia night. It was a pick in the end because of the relationships. The trio, Madeline, Celeste and Jane were the key female friends but Moriarty also explored parent/child, wife/husband, sibling and frenemies. The last half was mostly worth the wait. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

I ❤️ Liane Moriarty! This is the second of her books that I‘ve read and it‘s fantastic! Twists and turns, complex characters, and a story line that draws the reader in. This is one of those books that you can‘t put down until you‘re done!

marleed Are you just now enjoying this book for the first time? I‘m love that! One of my favorite things about Litsy is when a review pops up on my newsfeed to remind me of a book I loved just as much as its current reader! It what makes books so awesome. 7mo
Bojo2006 Yup, this was my first read of this book. Might check out the HBO version next 7mo

I am in floods of tears. What an amazing storyteller Moriarty is. I couldn't put this book down. Madeleine is bolshy and ballsy but vulnerable in her own way; Jane is defiant and brave but seems so fragile; and Celeste is the one that everyone assumes is fine but is living a lie. It picked on so many themes of being a woman and motherhood, as well as friendship and relationships, and I loved the interviews at the start of each chapter. Excellent!

Wow. This book was full of drama. It tackles big subjects while still remaining entertaining. The writing is joyful and frivolous without ever making light of the serious issues within its pages.

Big little lies took me on an emotional rollercoaster with its three main characters. I felt their anger, their jealousy, their pain and their joy.

⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4 stars

"As Jane looked around her, she felt that dissatisfied feeling she often experienced when she was somewhere new and lovely. She couldn't quite articulate it except with the words: If only I was here. This little beachside café was so exquisite she longed to really be there, except of course, she WAS there, so it didn't make sense."

@Yuki_Onna "Pickles is a model" ???? She does not look impressed at being roped into modelling my new read..

Started this today. So far I'm recognising Moriarty's style. Chatty, multiple POV, lively and quirky. I don't know how much the emphasis will be on the mystery and how much will be on the drama, but I'm excited to find out.

Here are my #roll100 books as randomly selected by @PuddleJumper

Both have been on my TBR for far too long!

The only other Liane Moriarty book I read started out strong, but got silly very quickly. I'm hoping this one is better as Nine Perfect Strangers had promise.

I'll start on Neurotribes once I've finished Black and British.

Zoes_Human I liked this one FAR better than Nine Perfect Strangers. 11mo
RaeLovesToRead @Zoes_Human That's great news 😁 Hopefully I'll like it! 11mo
LiteraryinLawrence I think I‘ve read all of Liane Moriarty‘s books and Nine Perfect Strangers was my least favorite. This one is much more representative of her style, so if you like it you can read her whole backlist! 😁 11mo

Hi everyone - I'm back after a month or so of radio silence. I have done so badly at reading, and I am trying to figure out why. I'm hoping that if I read a fictional piece from my shelf (and I LOVED this series too), it will motivate me to catch up on my goal! #booktwoof2021 #orisitbookthree #tbr #whatiread

There is alot of build up as the first chapter starts off with the murder, but as Moriarty writes with a deft light hand it was all fairly enjoyable. A surprisingly frothy book which tackles domestic violence and murder. I saw about half of the plot twist coming but the other half did surprise me.
Will now toodle off and watch the tv series. 😂😂

I really enjoyed this book. There is a richness and a realness to the characters that was refreshing for a thriller. Jane moves her and her son, Ziggy to a new town. During his kindergarten orientation he gets accused of trying to strangle one of his classmates and then the entire town seems to turn against him.

This was a great book to listen to (~15 hrs) during a 20 hr road trip back home after the holidays 🚗 Fast moving plot that made the miles pass by. This book seems to have garnered a lot of hype, and though it‘s not my usual book of choice, I can see why— its a great story, with a plot twist I somehow didn‘t see coming, and about characters whose behavior was so realistic. I laughed and gasped and exclaimed aloud!
