Book Beginning: Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty



"That doesn't sound like a school trivia night," said Mrs. Patty Ponder to Marie Antoinette. "That sounds like a riot."

-- Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. I was slow to climb onto this bandwagon and now I regret it. I love this Big Little Lies book! Now I want to read Moriarty's other books. What should I start with?

This is the cover on the audiobook edition I got from the library. It's so striking that I like it better than the tv show tie-in cover I usually see.

Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

SOCIAL MEDIA: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I try to follow all Book Beginnings participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up. Please find me on InstagramFacebook, and Twitter.


TIE IN: The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is a natural tie in with this event and there is a lot of cross over, so many people combine the two. The idea is to post a teaser from page 56 of the book you are reading and share a link to your post. Find details and the Linky for your Friday 56 post on Freda’s Voice.


"I'll pay you a thousand dollars if you stop that sound right now," said Ed. He put his pillow over his face. For a very nice man, he was surprisingly cruel about her singing.

Hi Gilion,

I don't know why, this is an author I have heard so much about, but who I have never got around to reading for myself. I definitely like your cover art better than any of the others I found when I was checking out the author pages.

You mentioned about reading more of her books - I quite like the sound of her debut novel 'The Husband's Secret', although I am wondering if I might discover things about my own relationship I may not want to know!! (just joking).

Thanks for hosting and Happy Reading :)

I've been slow coming round to reading this too - it looks as though it's good.

That's pretty sinister, isn't it?
I definitely want to read the book of Big Little Lies because I really enjoyed the TV series.

I agree the cover is very eye-catching, but I don't think it's one I'd pick up. Hope you enjoy it though!
