What can I say about Big Little Lies? I’ve read this book previously, (like in 2014, maybe?) but I decided to read it again before the premier of HBO’s mini series based off the novel, two weeks ago. I love this book. Big Little Lies started my love for Liane Moriarty and I have since read all of her books except one (which I am currently reading and will be posting about soon.) This is one of my go-to recommendations because it has a little bit of everything; mystery, friendship, romance, and murder.
The story is narrated by Jane, a single mom who is new in town; Madeline, Jane’s defender who has problems of her own between her eldest daughter and ex-husband; and Celeste, who is in an abusive relationship but can’t seem to admit it to herself. Throw in the drama surrounding their kindergarten children, and somehow this book ends in murder. Seriously, read it. Then, watch the mini-series so we can discuss it. I rated it 4 stars on Goodreads.
