Although I am not big on resolutions, I have set a goal to read 20 books this year. And I’m using Goodreads to track my books now – I realize it’s been around a while, but I just started using it and like it! So my first book of the year is down!
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty is chick lit at its best, especially if you have kids. The focus of the book is one event, but you don’t know what actually happens until the end, but she keeps you guessing. And even though you get details from both before and after said event, you still don’t know exactly what happens until the perfect moment. And I’d be surprised if anyone could guess the big revelation that is discovered. Having worked with both kids and parents in various settings, I can appreciate the different personalities and clashing parenting styles and opinions. If cliques and gossip and cattiness completely enrage you, I would not recommend this book. This should, however, be a fun book club discussion in a couple weeks.
This was an entertaining and quick read. I’m excited to read more of her books!
