This month’s book club boasts a 2 for the price of 1! How about a book AND a tv show?! If you haven’t heard about HBO’s new hit series Big Little Lies, than you are missing out on some well-deserved drama indulgence. Read a little further to find out more…
Book Club – Big Little Lies
Nicole Kidman, Reece Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley make up an all-star cast in HBO’s new mini-series: Big Little Lies. This show is based on the stellar novel by Australian author, Liane Moriarty, author of The Husband’s Secret and Truly Madly Guilty. If you’re like me, I always indulge in the book first before watching the movie or show so pick this up before you start tuning in!
This story follows these three women as they deal with ex-husbands, second wives, affairs and schoolyard scandals in a small coastal beach town. It’s nothing but good old-fashioned DRAMA and MYSTERY. The beginning opens with a murder although you’ll have to wait until the end of the story to find out who the murderer and the victim are. The story weaves in a way that will have you guessing the whole time.
It’s the perfect beach read to enjoy this summer. Easy to pick up where you left off and you’ll be anxious to find out the truth amongst all the lies. Then once you have your kids in bed, you can start binge watching! I thought the show was so well done and the directing by Canadian Jean-Marc Vallée is something to see. I personally couldn’t stop analyzing how amazing Nicole Kidman and Reece Witherspoon looked! Even your husband will tune in for this one once you promise Kidman naked in almost every episode. 🙂
