Short, quirky & funny.
Happiness = reality - expectations
This is a very well written book. I was hooked from the start. The only drawback for me was their mum's story - it felt a bit weak/flat. Overall, a great read. Loved Danny & Maeve's relationship.
This is a very addictive book. But I must say it's not on the same level as The Handmaid's Tale. It doesn't have the same power, mystique or gravitas. This felt very new age and it was too neatly packaged. Nevertheless, I still really enjoyed it. Now I must re-read The Handmaid's Tale to bask in its greatness.
Really, really enjoyed this book and learnt lots from it. I wanted to give it 5 stars but couldn't because the second half of the book (some parts) felt rushed and impersonal. Regardless, I know I will always think fondly of Sunja and her family.
My 7 & 8yr old love his Weir Do books & they love this memoir just as much. 👍 I'm in awe of his many, many talents.
Very well written memoir about an extremely interesting, chaotic & dysfunctional family. Her parents did some pretty messed up, unforgivable things but I love hearing the author speak about her parents/life, "...I don't see myself as a victim, I see myself as somebody who got some incredible gifts...". Well, her parents have sure built a resilient, strong & intelligent woman!! What an incredible story.
My first book written in verse & it was a very successful & positive experience. I tried desperately to get the audiobook but unfortunately it wasn't available in Australia. If anyone knows how to get the audiobook online in Australia, please let me know. Highly recommended for poetry and non-poetry lovers.
Manipulation, jealousy, gossip, betrayal, obsession & 3 teenage girls with social/emotional issues, what could possible go wrong??
A thrilling & suspenseful page-turner that will keep you guessing. I really enjoyed it but the ending felt a bit rushed & bland.
The movie was way, way better! This book bored me with it's overly long descriptions. 87 pages in and the book is describing trees & autumn leaves falling and how people in the neighbourhood are raking up the leaves - it goes on for TWO pages!!!! "Different families used different methods. The Buells employed a three-man formation, with two rakers raking lengthwise and another sweeping in at a right angle..." OMG!! Time to bail, I think!!
A sad and heartwarming story of a 63 yo woman who re-discovers herself in a small desolate town/community called Borg. The locals take her in & show her the true meaning of love, laughter, loyalty & friendship.
Wow. I can't believe I only found this book now, where have I been?? It's over 500 pages & I finished it in 2 days. What a dark, gripping page-turner! I loved reading from the dad's perspective - so beautiful & heartbreaking!
I didn't enjoy this as much her other books but I still love the way she writes.
Nothing more awkward than being stuck at a kid's party full of strangers. Luckily, I have my trusted friend, Liane Moriarty, with me. 👍
Surprisingly, I stuck with it until the end. Even though his family life wasn't ideal, he at least had his sister & extended family who really loved him & supported him. Some people don't even have that. It was an interesting read.
Found these in the bargain bin - had to buy!! 😮 🤗 #bargainTuesday
