Amazon Synopsis:

A murder…A tragic accident…Or just parents behaving badly? What’s indisputable is that someone is dead.

Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny, biting, and passionate; she remembers everything and forgives no one. Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare but she is paying a price for the illusion of perfection. New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for a nanny. She comes with a mysterious past and a sadness beyond her years. These three women are at different crossroads, but they will all wind up in the same shocking place.

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.

This is one of those books that has made the bestseller list, but didn't initially interest me. I'm desperate to finish my last 5 books before my birthday, though, so when I saw this was available, I just snapped it up and decided to power through it.

I was worried for nothing. I loved it. It was beautifully written, the story was funny and interesting and relatable. And I loved the twists. It kept me guessing. Although I did figure out one of the elements way before it was revealed. *pats self on back*

I really liked it. It's a bestseller for good reason. Two thumbs up.

Only 4 books to go! I can do it!


  1. I'm glad to hear you liked it! I've heard great things about Moriarty's writing, and am on the wait list for a couple of hers. Yay. :)

  2. Way to go with the progress on the 30 before 30 - you've got this, Sadie! This book was on my list for a while too, but my library website doesn't have it on audio. So instead I might try The Husband's Secret, another one of her books, that does happen to be available. You have my permission to read that one too and tell me if it's any good ;D
