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?”
If you fancy joining in, here’s how…
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two teaser sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
• Share the title and author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!
Which was the last book that kept you up through the night?
