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.

Oh Calamity!

I loved this book! My husband even remarked how fast I finished it because I could not put it down! The mystery, the characters, the twist at the end....

I wish I had saved this one for my book club. So much to unpack.

I read this book about 2 years ago with my book club girls. I loved Liane‘s storytelling and the dynamic of each and every character. The characters were all completely relatable. We have all known a Madeline, Celeste, and Jane at some point in our lives. #biglittlelies #lianemoriarty #scandal #bookworm

This book drew me in immediately. I became invested in the characters. When the other moms at the school were mean to Jane, I wanted to rush to her defense. It made me so angry. And the final big reveal at the end, I did not see that coming. This was a very enjoyable read.

Caucasian drama at its finest. Everything Desperate Housewives season 8 wishes it could be. Do I feel I was challenged intellectually by this book? No. But I did savor the drama and enjoyed the at-times nonsensical ride. lol

bookladyreads I really enjoyed this book. I've been reading more of her books. I read Truly Madly Guilty, which I hated and DNF'd, and I read Nine Perfect Strangers, which I rather enjoyed. Have you read any of her other books? 1mo
longisland_mom @bookladyreads ohhh interesting! no I havent! my Mom bought The Husbands Secret so i might borrow that though! 1mo
bookladyreads @longisland_mom Yeah. I DNF'd Truly Madly Guilty around page 250 and then I read the last few chapters of the book. Which I only did because that book is being adapted into a limited series. 1mo

This one took me a little while to get into, but once I did get into it, it really was an excellent read. The adults in this one behaved totally disgracefully, talk about guilty until proven innocent, & their victim was a 5 year old! As a head Teacher/Principal their behaviour absolutely horrified me. However it certainly left you wanting to read on! A few little twists to the end. This one and What Alice Forgot are my favourites by this author.

Megabooks Totally agree! I was reminded of Amabella and these parents‘ horrible behavior when I read 1mo
Ruthiella I really want to try What Alice Forgot. I‘ve also read The Husband‘s Secret and found it just OK. 1mo

This book is a wonderful excerpt into the lives of so many women. Each woman relatable to some version of yourself that you've already been or currently are. It's easy for me to relate to Madeline a busy bee mom but I've also been Jane, a "silly girl", and been a part of Celeste's mindset of "I've done this to myself". It is a powerful reminder of an unspoken bond many women share. I look forward to reading more books by Liane Moriarty. 5/5 stars.

Lisa0223 Ok I‘m definitely going to read this book! I love it when I can really relate to the characters. Thanks 2mo

This book lived up to the hype; would like to watch the TV series. The story follows three women and their interconnected families and relationships: Madeline, a mother of 3 who‘s smart, funny, and a typical mother; Jane, a single mother of a 5-year-old boy with a traumatic past; and Celeste, the woman with the “perfect” life who‘s battling her own serious demons. Moriarty manages to discuss important feminist social issues in a realistic way.

melissajayne I found the TV series so addicting. Fortunately it‘s only 7 episodes for each season. I also read this book twice and liked it much better after the second read. (edited) 2mo
NeedsMoreBooks @melissajayne Yes, I noticed. The 2nd season looks great although it is an offshoot. Some books read better the second time 😊 (edited) 2mo
OnlyYoo This book was so much fun! I was so shocked by the plot twist 2mo
nichollinlove I watched both seasons of the show before reading the book and I am now disappointed in the show. HBO decimated Madeline and Celeste's characters. Reduced them to sexually charged women that both hurt their families. It just doesn't align with the message of the book for me. I'm really happy I read the book. It's much better than the show, as those things usually go. 2mo
NeedsMoreBooks @nichollinlove thanks for the review on the show. That‘s the problem with adaptations 😡 2mo

4/5
I finally read this and discovered that reading about children and their mothers gave me more anxiety than reading about serial killers. Who knew? Ha. It is captivating, funny, and scary. But, it is also lacking depth. Not surprised. This book does what it promises: a page-turning, chick-lit mystery that will have you guessing until the end.

This book was deliciously fun to read! So fast-paced and wonderfully scandalous. No wonder they turned it into a series (which I watched on the way home from my trip). I couldn‘t get the actor‘s faces out of my head as I read though.

Read this, more like consumed this, book in a day. And wow. A good book that brought up and tackled a lot of potential tricky topics. Who would have thought a book about the secrets that kindergarten mom‘s have would be so dark and fascinating?

Side note: I checked the shows IMDb page after reading it and I think it is perfectly cast - exactly what I thought they would look like!

This was a lot more serious and intense than I expected it to be. Not on my radar at all, but my MIL handed it to me, so I read it and was delightfully surprised. I thought it was going to be frivolous and full of caricature and instead it was witty and thoughtful. Made me laugh out loud and sigh with sympathy and anguish. I‘m interested in what else this author has now!

I‘m just watching Season 2 now, and that slap! Two of my favorite actors, and this scene was crazy.

Anyone else let down by Season 2 overall though? Meryl Streep‘s portrayal of Perry‘s mother is one of the only things I like about this season, but I never seem to like when a series goes beyond the book that inspired it (GoT is an exception).

Anyone else struggle to get through season two? I was underwhelmed by the first season, but the second season just feels so drawn out and unnecessary based on what I‘ve seen so far. 🤷‍♀️
