Book Review: Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

Big Little Lies got a whole lot of buzz when the TV miniseries came out last year. I haven’t seen the show yet, but I was curious about the book based on the premise of the show. One Goodreads reviewer described this book best: “this is the funniest book about domestic violence and murder that I’ve ever read.”  I feel like that just about describes this book.

Weekly Reading Wrap-Up: 18 January 2019

Happy Friday! This week has had lots of ups and downs, and I’m so glad it is Friday. It has been a great week for books, in contrast to the first few weeks of the year when I was really struggling to finish things and didn’t love the books I had read. I participated in our second instalment if the Off the Grid readathon and managed to read most of the TBR I set for myself! In addition, the TBR I set was amazing because they’re all 4.5-5 star reads.

Weekly Reading Wrap-Up: 11 January 2019

Happy Friday! It has been a roller coaster of a week and while I’ve been reading loads, I didn’t manage to finish anything (I shall explain in a moment).  Things might get a little erratic here on the blog as Scottish Fiance and I get all of the planning wrapped up for our wedding (just over four weeks to go!) and chase down RSVPs, but try not to miss me too much!

Book Review: The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley

I’ve been on the hunt for a great thriller ever since finishing up The Girl on the Train back in 2015. I don’t read thrillers to often, but the ones I’ve read lately have felt like a letdown. Enter The Hunting Party, a twisted tale of murder amongst friends in the Scottish highlands. I was hooked on this book from the first page and was completely blown away. It is easily the best thriller I’ve read in ages.
