Not my favourite Moriarty, but it was still a good listen. It‘s hard for an audiobook to keep my attention, but I had no problems with this one. It‘s cute and quirky.

JacqMac @Nute That‘s my problem, too. My mind just wanders off. It has to be a really great story with a really great narrator, to keep me focused on it. 3mo

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. 14mo
MelissaSue81 This one wasn‘t my favorite... but I do think it got better.. it could have been shorter though. 14mo
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. 13mo
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. 13mo

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

Let me begin by saying I highly enjoyed the author‘s books The Husband‘s Secret and Big Little Lies. This was only a so-so. I read part and listened to part and skimmed to the end. Just too sappy and irritating , for lack of a better term. Just get on with it. Too much babbling. Maybe it‘s my mood but this just wasn‘t doing much for me. On to the next. 3⭐️

Loved this! I don't think it started out as strongly as it finished, but I do so adore the Moriarty "formula." That is: wide cast of interconnected characters, each with their own intricate story, bound together by some domestic mystery, that comes to fruition at some big event. I will be sad when I'm done with her books!

A friend at work was having a clear out of her shelves, so I got first dibs to have a root through and picked these 5 to bring home. I have loved every Liane Moriarty book I have come across, and John Grisham can usually be relied upon. I‘ve never heard of the others though, but their subject matter caught my attention. Have any of you Littens out there read any of these? I‘d love to hear about it!

⭐️⭐️⭐️ this was really so-so for me. While the writing was great, I didn't feel the story moved at a pace that held my attention. A lot of characters in this book, and unfortunately I didn't connect with any of them. I also found the mystery to be lacking and slightly predictable. #thelastanniversary #review

RadicalReader @LazyLibrary what mystery novel did exceed your interest? 2y
LazyLibrary @RadicalReader I would say her other novel Big Little Lies did, I really had no idea who was dead. And also Dark Matter by Blake Crouch, that was wild!!! I didn't know what was real and what wasn't! 2y
RadicalReader @LazyLibrary I love when you have to truly think about novels or read them multiple times or find assistance for character guides or chapter summaries to explain troubling situations. 2y

There was a moment, during the first half of the book, where I thought this was going to be my first disappointing book by LM - but, fortunately, that thought didn't last very long! This ended up being another fun, funny, enjoyable & suspenseful book by ML. Love her!!!

RadicalReader @Night_Reader what has been your favorite mystery novel of all time? 2y
Night_Reader @RadicalReader That's an extremely hard question. I've read lots of good thriller/mystery books but not sure bout my favourite. 2y
Night_Reader @RadicalReader Have you read 'The Trap' by Melanie Raabe? That's a great book. Also Lisa Unger's 'In the Blood'. 2y
RadicalReader @Night_Reader haven't read either but will most definitely check them out. In the blood by Lisa Unger sounds like the best thriller novel for me to read in 2018 truly gripping plot from the description. A book I recently picked up Crazy Love You sounds absolutely wonderful I recommend you check it out! (edited) 2y

The book was an ok story, but not as good as Big Little Lies. It dragged on a little at the end but had a good mystery element to it.
