I enjoy Moriarty‘s mysteries; the ones I‘ve read involve multiple POVs that connect in the end. This one fell a little flat for me because I guessed the ending, and I wasn‘t a fan of one “piece” of it - it felt like a character was settling. It was still well written, but I also want to say it has suicidal thoughts and things of that nature. I may not need a trigger warning, but it‘s something I would mention when recommending/lending a book.

5feet.of.fury I have been trying to read this for a while. I‘m finding it hard to get into. Maybe this is a sign. 6mo
BriannaT @5feet.of.fury Maybe! I found Big Little Lies by her easier to get into and it was worth it. But then again I‘m weird and I‘m afraid to DNF anything because then I “let the book win.” 🤦‍♀️ 6mo
5feet.of.fury @BriannaT I usually persevere but sometimes you gotta draw the line 😂 I have Big Little Lies on the shelf and I loved the adaptation, I feel like I would love her writing but… this might not be the one to start with 6mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Post partem, biological clocks ticking away, discovery sexuality, and more. Good story and I liked the twist 😉

Finished this one the other night and while I enjoyed it, it was not one of my favorites of Moriarty‘s. I have one more of hers to read and then I‘ll be caught up on her backlist before her next book comes out later this year though! I had trouble keeping track of all the characters in this one and the “big reveal” felt like a bit of a let down, but I laughed out loud a few times and there was one last small surprise near the end I liked. 3.5 ⭐️

I got confused and expected a common murder mystery, but it was a great read nonetheless! I guessed the truth about the Munro mystery before it was revealed, but the book was still interesting, with a wonderful cast of characters. I wish one specific character turned out to be bisexual instead of gay - it would have provided even more diversity (us bisexuals are so often forgotten!) and offered a final twist in another character‘s happy ending.

I won‘t say that is my favorite Liane Motiarty book but I did enjoy it. I enjoyed all the different characters and how their individual story played a part in the bigger story. I did feel like the ending was a little rushed and I wanted to know more about the characters especially Sophie! I have had this book on my shelf since 2016 so I am glad I could use it from the #booked2021 prompt: set in Australia

Crazeedi I've read all her books, I agree not her best, but still good 2y

I enjoyed this book & the different personalities of each character. It shows the lengths that family will go to keep a secret, protect or provide for each other. Whilst the love of some doesn‘t always feel obvious, scratch the surface and you‘ll soon realise it‘s been there all along, just maybe your perception has been skewed.

This is the lightest book I‘ve read of Moriarty‘s but still loved it. Imagine being 39, afraid your biological clock is ticking fast and suddenly you inherit a fabulous house on a small island from your EX boyfriend‘s dead aunt! So begins the story of Sophie, who has the jolliest parents on planet earth. The mystery of a couple who disappeared and left their baby on the island is ever present. Enjoy the read!

A quirky mystery, a full cast of eccentric characters and a storyline full of drama, secrets with a good dose of humor speckled throughout, The Anniversary was a fun read that kept my attention. After having read several books by this author, it is clear that this is one of her earlier works, but enjoyable none the less.

When Sophie‘s ex-boyfriend‘s Great Aunt Connie leaves her something in her will, Sophie is just as surprised as Connie‘s family. When she decides to accept the inheritance, she begins a new life surrounded by an old family secret. What a fun, quirky, flawed group of characters. They come together perfectly, as I imagine Aunt Connie‘s marble cake did. I enjoyed my time with them, flaws and all, and appreciated the closing of the story. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

My exciting Saturday night! We had so much fun celebrating hubby‘s bday last night with friends (thanks to our oldest taxiing us there and an Uber home). Tonight we had hubby‘s bday dinner with the kids: steamed crabs (it‘s a MD thing - no one does it like we do), grilled shrimp, roasted brussel sprouts, and of course beer to go with the crabs! Reading this book until my eyes close, with my constant companion. #hamiltonsighting #dogsoflitsy

Lots of characters to keep straight from early on in this book. I had to sketch out a family tree cheat sheet! I think I‘ve got them all down, and I‘m quite curious as to how this will all play out.

This is one of my favorite books, & I decided to listen to the audiobook this time around. It holds up well and I once again had a huge smile on my face at the end of the book. I love all of the characters and the setting of the fictional Scribbly Gum Island in Australia. Bonus points for the awesome Australian accent in the audiobook. 5⭐️

I think I'm only a fan of half of Liane Moriarty's books. I devoured her most recent titles and started reading her older books. This is the second one I'm bailing on. Super disappointed, but got stick to my rules. Hook me by page 100 (read 159 of this one) or move along.

litenthusiast That's how I feel about her book too. Also, I love your rule about giving a book until page 100 - I may have to adopt that rule. 4y
MelissaSue81 This one wasn‘t my favorite... but I do think it got better.. it could have been shorter though. 4y
MaggieCarr @litenthusiast it's a good rule and it keeps me motivated. My TBR stack is often at avalanche risk so best to move along when I'm not enamored by a title. 4y
MaggieCarr @MelissaSue81 I can see how shortening it may have helped. Still love her recent titles, maybe it just took time to hone in on her writing style. 4y

A decent family story with realistic varied characters, I found that “The Last Anniversary” couldn‘t impress me with its mystery, but kept me interested with its relationships & family dramas. I‘m intrigued by Liane Moriarty‘s writing and will keep her in mind for future reads, but this book was just too long & the predictable reveal of the Munro baby means this book is only getting three stars from me.

Moriarty develops her characters with such raw and honest flaws but adds a touch of humor. This is a mystery of a couple that disappears from their island home leaving their newborn behind with the teakettle boiling and a warm cake on the counter. There is a crazy climax that clears up the mystery as all the other residents on the island come to terms with their part in the mystery. 4 1/2⭐️ #freakyfriday
