It has been a long while since I read a book that I couldn’t put down.
One that made me excited to get into bed at night. One that I carried with me everywhere so I could jump back in at a moment’s notice.
Big Little Lies is one of those books.
This is not an epic, friends. This is not a thought-provoking, life-changing, mind-altering read.
It’s just fun. And fast-paced. And witty. And full of little twists and turns and “never saw that coming” little moments that I love. It’s set in an Australian suburb and follows the lives of several women as they navigate schoolyard politics, mommy wars and behind-closed-doors secrets that unravel throughout the story, sucking you right in.
If that’s your thing, pick it up today. Finish it tomorrow. And let me know what you thought.
On a detour to Big Little Lies, I started Bossypants because I kind of felt like I was the last woman on the planet who hadn’t read it and I couldn’t remember why. A few chapters in, I remembered why. I want to love the whole Tina Fey/Amy Poehler funny cool girl clique as much as most do, but they leave me underwhelmed and dare I say it, kind of annoyed? I started Fey’s book and found myself bored and rolling my eyes here and there and I decided to put it down because life is short and I don’t want to waste it reading books I am not into. I may revisit one day (tell me if it gets better?!) or I may not.
In the meantime, the next one on my list is The Woman I Wanted to Be by DVF. This was a Christmas gift and I am excited to get into it for a little girl power inspiration for the new year. I have things I want to do this year. Ideas I want to take flight. Places I want to see. And I am hoping this book will be a good start down that road. Will let you know.
As always, would love to hear which titles you can’t put down right now and you can see the others on my “Books to Read” board here.
Happy Monday! xx
