Some Summer Readin’

Most of my posts lately have been all things baby, pregnancy and maternity! I wanted to change gears and talk about my summer reading. And by summer reading, I more mean my current slight obsession with anything by Liane Moriarty.

I came across her a couple months ago when I tried her novel What Alice Forgot. I was instantly hooked on her Australian dialogue and chick flick (chick lit)/not chick flick style of writing. I always have a hard time describing her because her books are definitely geared toward the female population, but they are also intriguing and have a wonderful story line and plot and are not necessarily predictable like your typical chick flick movie.

I have been telling everyone about her books and should probably become her PR person but you know….life, people.

Anyways, she has seven books and I have read four of them and am in the middle of a fifth.

My list so far

What Alice Forgot

The Husband’s Secret

Big Little Lies

Truly, Madly, Guilty

The Hypnotist’s Love Story (currently reading)

[What Alice Forgot is still my favorite so far followed by Big, Little Lies.]

I guess my slight disclaimer would be that there are short segments in her books that I would rate as PG-13. I don’t agree with everything she says, but I feel like as a Christian in this world we need to be “in it not of it.” Her books don’t contain anything you wouldn’t see on a popular Netflix show and are DEFINITELY not detailed sex scenes or anything like that–that would be too much for me.

OK, so you are new to Liane Moriarty and trying to figure out where to start. I found this list AFTER I started reading her books. It was written before her seventh book came out, but the writer suggests an order to read them in! I definitely did not do this order and it is obviously find if you don’t!

So what am I going to do after I finish all of her books? I found this post that shares other books fans of hers might enjoy.

What are you reading this summer!?

    What Alice Forgot is on my to-read list but I haven’t gotten around to it yet. I started Truly, Madly, Guilty and just couldn’t get into it.

      I’m sorry you did not enjoy it! It definitely was not my favorite of hers but still enjoyable.
