Big Little Lies #TeaserTuesday

I started reading Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty yesterday and it kept me awake till past midnight, till my eyes closed and I crashed on the bed without removing the covers. That, dear friends, never happens to me, no matter how tired I am, and on a school night too, when I had to be up again at 5 am.

This one is that good.

Sharing a passage from the book for Teaser Tuesday – the brain child of Should Be Reading. I fully intended to do this yesterday but you know now what happened.

The book had many many passages I loved and identified with but I’ll talk about all of that when I review it. Here’s one I quite agree with. The unfairness of this question has baffled me time and again.

“I mean a fat, ugly man can still be funny and lovable and successful,” continued Jane. “But it’s like it’s the most shameful thing for a woman to be.”
“But you weren’t, (fat and ugly) you’re not—” began Madeline.
“Yes, OK, but so what if I was!” interrupted Jane. “What if I was! That’s my point. What if I was a bit overweight and not especially pretty? Why is that so terrible? So disgusting? Why is that the end of the world?”

Which was the last book that kept you up through the night?

    Big Little Lies is one of the books that I received last month as a gift for my birthday. After reading this post of yours I really want to pick it up soon! I was reading Wonder last night and I couldn’t sleep till I finished reading it!

      Both are so very different and yet wonderful reads. I don’t think anyone can dislike a book like Wonder.

    The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty is on my TBR and have heard a lot about Big Little Lies. This one sounds interesting and would like to read it too.
    You know what, just a few days ago, I was checking my old posts, and saw Teaser Tuesday posts and I thought about you, because I first saw it here on your blog! I abandoned them after 2-3 posts I guess. Must re-start!!
