Big Little Lies–Liane Moriarty

Sometimes I give in and read popular books to see what the big fucking deal is. 

“Gone Girl” is an example of this. I read that because I didn’t want the mystery ruined. But I did not like that book. I could not remotely relate to the characters or understand their motivations. It seemed far-fetched. 

I read “Life of Pi” and was like “Meh. It was okay. Kind of annoyed at the ending.” *awkward shrug* 

I read “Simon VS. The Homosapiens Agenda” and was like ‘HOLY MOTHER OF FUCK THIS IS SUCH A GOOD GODDAMN BOOK EVERYONE MUST READ THIS AHHHHH” And threw it at everyone I know.

But that’s a story for another day. 

The point of my saying this is that sometimes books exceed my expectations. Sometimes. 

SO where does “Big Little Lies” rate? On a scale of Gone Girl to Simon? 

Somewhere in the middle. 

It was well written, and shocking in parts, and then everything exploded and I was left like “WHOA WHAT.” 

I didn’t think there was going to be so much intrigue in a book about three mothers and how they all come to be friends.

But sometimes a book is suggested by the entire world for a reason. 

Because it explodes at the end. 

Not…not literally. 
Although WHAT a surprise that would be! 

Constant vigilance!
