Our Shared Shelf: A Review

To escape my novel purgatory, I decided to join Our Shared Shelf. For those who are unfamiliar, Our Shared Shelf if Emma Watson's book club on Goodreads. I often draw my book recommendations from Goodreads along with a few lists Watson herself has composed, so for me, this book club was a no-brainer. 

The Circle Review

If a realistic dystopian novel about the internet peaks your interest, this one is for you. I went back and forth about reading this because there are so many mixed reviews, but in the end, I flew through this book. I read it in 2 days!

The Husband's Secret Review

This is the second novel I’ve read by Moriarty, and I was able to pick out similarities in her writing structure. She likes to have a “perfect” character who appears to have life figured out, then put them in a chaotic environment. She also likes to have multiple story lines and in the end mesh them together.

The Husband’s Secret provides mystery and comedy, but also leaves you thinking about it for days.

Big Little Lies: A book and TV series comparison

Liane Moriarty’s novel Big Little Lies released in 2014 and was an instant hit. Coincidentally, the first time I heard of the author was when Reese Witherspoon posted a photo Truly Madly Deeply on her Instagram account. If Reese was reading Moriarty, I knew I had to. I read Big Little Lies and I’m currently reading A Husband’s Secret.
