Reading Challenge - Book Nine

OMG. Definitely one of my favorite books so far this year! I ended up listing it in the reading challenge as 'a book that's becoming a movie in 2017.' I think it's more accurately called a mini-series, but close enough. Hubby and I are done with the first three episodes on HBO so far, and the finale was actually broadcast last night.

I read Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty because I LOVE book and movie combos, and people were starting to talk about the show. Luckily, but book was in a box of books from my mom, and she's a recent Liane Moriarty fan, so several books are by her.

I loved the characters, even the ones you love to hate. And the mini-series is doing a great job with them too, I think. Characters are truly what draws me into a book, and I loved the way they were developed in this book. I keep saying I feel bad for hubby for watching the show with me, as I'm continually commenting on their back story, or how they really think/feel during a particular scene. Because I've read the book, so now they're my friends. LOL

This book made me laugh, cry, and shout out loud (much to the dismay of my kids trying to watch their tv shows in the same room). I would definitely recommend it as a great book to escape real life and be entertained for a few hours.

I loved this book. I couldn't wait to watch the mini series, and then I enjoyed the series even more than the book.

Loved the book and all the others by her as well. Glad you liked it too.

Well this looks pretty interesting! If nothing else the cover is very eye catching. I'll have to look at this deeper.

I've read this and a few of Liane Moriarty's books, and all are good. Jenn - I loved the miniseries as well.

I've been seeing and hearing about the book and series everywhere. I'm definitely going to add it to my list!

Everyone is talking about the star-studded HBO mini series right now. I knew it was based on a book, but you are the first person I know who has actually read it. I generally like to read the book before seeing the movie, or in this case the mini series. So, I guess I should get on it!
