BIG LITTLE LIES by Liane Moriarty
Pirriwee Public’s annual school Trivia Night has ended in a shocking riot. One parent is dead. The school principal is horrified. As police investigate what appears to have been a tragic accident, signs begin to indicate that this devastating death might have been cold-blooded murder.
“Those we love don’t go away, they sit beside us every day.”
“It’s because a woman’s entire self-worth rests on her looks,” said Jane. “That’s why. It’s because we live in a beauty-obsessed society where the most important thing a woman can do is make herself attractive to men.”
“All conflict can be traced back to someone’s feelings getting hurt, don’t you think?”
― Liane Moriarty, Big Little Lies
I had this book in my possession since it was released and just never got around to reading it. It was the perfect way to end the year and begin 2015. I liked Big Little Lies more than The Husband’s Secret, the story just seemed better put together.
If you haven’t read it, add it to your TBR!
You want a good laugh? This is the book to read. I loved reading the Shopoholic series by Sophie Kinsella and this book does not disappoint. Filled with lots of insane situations and occurrences where I literally laughed out loud and then smacked myself on the forehead because of what shenanigans Poppy gets herself into, I could not put this book down. I read this in one day because I could not tear myself away from it. This is a great Sunday read.
I’ve lost it. The only thing in the world I wasn’t supposed to lose. My engagement ring. It’s been in Magnus’s family for three generations. And now, the very same day his parents are coming, I’ve lost it. The very same day. Do not hyperventilate Poppy. Stay positive!!
Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry the ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her ‘happy ever after’ begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring but in the panic that followed, she has now lost her phone. As she paces shakily round the hotel foyer she spots an abandoned phone in a bin. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect!
Well, perfect except the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton doesn’t agree. He wants his phone back anddoesn’t appreciate Poppy reading all his messages and wading into his personal life.
What ensues is a hilarious and unpredictable turn of events as Poppy and Sam increasingly upend each other’s lives through emails and text messages. As Poppy juggles wedding preparations, mysterious phone calls andhiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents… she soon realises that she is in for the biggest surprise of her life.
