Big Little Lies follows three women, each at a crossroads:
Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny and biting, passionate, she remembers everything and forgives no one. Her ex-husband and his yogi new wife have moved into her beloved beachside community, and their daughter is in the same kindergarten class as Madeline’s youngest (how is this possible?). And to top it all off, Madeline’s teenage daughter seems to be choosing Madeline’s ex-husband over her. (How. Is. This. Possible?).Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare. While she may seem a bit flustered at times, who wouldn’t be, with those rambunctious twin boys? Now that the boys are starting school, Celeste and her husband look set to become the king and queen of the school parent body. But royalty often comes at a price, and Celeste is grappling with how much more she is willing to pay.New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and harbors secret doubts about her son. But why? While Madeline and Celeste soon take Jane under their wing, none of them realizes how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all.Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.

Genius! Pure and utterly genius!  I'm a person that believes there is no such thing a perfection(except for puppies and cupcakes) but this, my bookworm friends, is perfection! It is written gold right in your hands. It is a priceless artifact. It's a masterpiece!

Okay, I know, shut up with the lovefest already, but I can't help it! Like Madeline, I just can't contain my excitement. I cannot believe this book has been out since 2014 and I am only gifting myself the pleasure of reading it now. With all of the hype over the television show I thought I should probably hop on the bandwagon and give it a go. Of course, I wanted to read it first so I hesitantly bought my copy worried that it wasn't going to do it for me. That it wasn't going to "live up to the hype". Dear god, was I wrong! This book not only lived up to the hype, it demolished the hype, there isn't enough hype to hype up this book.

In case it hasn't been made clear, I loved the book. I devoured it in 2 days, but would have happily have given up sleep, food and work to read it in one sitting if I had been allowed. It so wildly entertaining! Big Little Lies is told in the perspective of 3 female characters: Celeste, Jane and Madeline. I haven't seen the show yet but I already know that they could not have done a better job casting. It seems like each actress was made for these characters. I can't wait to watch them come to life on the silver screen. However, these characters are so bold and vibrant that they flourish in your imagination on their own beautifully.

Liane Moriarty is a storytelling mastermind. She weaves this hilariously clever and at times dark, heart wrenching tale so effortlessly that it consumes you. You can't help but keep on reading. Big Little Lies is the most unputdownable book I have come across. I was absolutely hooked from page one all the way through to the end. And that twist! It's cray cray (kids are still saying that right?). I gasped. My jaw-dropped. My eyes bulged out!

Big Little Lies is a decadent read! You'll want to savour every last word!
