Book Review { Big Little Lies }

Synopsis: Big Little Lies follows three women, each at a crossroads:

Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny and biting, passionate, she remembers everything and forgives no one. Her ex-husband and his yogi new wife have moved into her beloved beachside community, and their daughter is in the same kindergarten class as Madeline’s youngest (how is this possible?). And to top it all off, Madeline’s teenage daughter seems to be choosing Madeline’s ex-husband over her. (How. Is. This. Possible?).

Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare. While she may seem a bit flustered at times, who wouldn’t be, with those rambunctious twin boys? Now that the boys are starting school, Celeste and her husband look set to become the king and queen of the school parent body. But royalty often comes at a price, and Celeste is grappling with how much more she is willing to pay.

New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and harbors secret doubts about her son. But why? While Madeline and Celeste soon take Jane under their wing, none of them realizes how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all.

Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.

My thoughts: This was on my to-read list but I had a few other books I wanted to read before I started this one, but Show Your Blog Love started a  book club and this was the first book every chose to read so I dove right in. And boy am I glad I did! This is the second book I have read by Liane Moriarty and she kept me up way too late some nights because I couldn't put it down.

I loved how the book went between conversations of the incident and back to the story telling style. I was so captivated by the plot and the story was told so well. Throughout the book you read the little lies that the characters told everyday and it kept you guessing at what happened! It all comes down to a trivia night where all the secrets and lies will come to full surface.
