I had a hard time with Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty. I struggled through the first 3/4 of the book and absolutely LOVED the last 1/4 of the books. I also had a hard time rating this book on Goodreads. How do you rate a book that you forced yourself to read for 3/4 of it but loved the last 1/4? The struggle is real y'all.
The characters in the book know what happened but the reader doesn't. The story is revealed mainly through the eyes of 6 characters but we get a glimpse through 3 other characters as well. It was frustrating for me not to know what happened. The characters kept revealing parts of what happened but never the full story. When the reader finally does learn what happened is when I really started loving the book.
There's betrayal, lies, drunkenness, over the counter meds, flirtation, jealousy, hoarding, sibling arguments, mommy issues, a good time, and a grumpy old man. The book covers a spectrum. ha!
Liane Moriarty is coming to an indie bookstore in Houston called Bluewillow Bookshop in September. My friend and I have tickets to go. I'm very excited to meet her and have my book signed.
I started The House on Mermaid Point (Ten Beach Road, #3) by Wendy Wax this weekend. This is a cute beach read series that I started this summer. I'm taking my time getting through the series because I don't want to get tired of it.
