Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

G’Day, Bookworms! Man, do I ever love audio books. The last time I read a book by Liane Moriarty, I spent the first few chapters thinking the What Alice Forgot (review) was set in England only to be jarred when a mention of Sydney forced me to re-align my mental accent.

Down The Rabbit Hole: What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty

Down The Rabbit Hole: What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty

Hey there, Hi there, Ho there, Bookworms! Before I start talking books today, I want to tell y’all some pretty crazy news. Over the weekend I found out that I made it into the finals of the 2013 Bloggie Awards. I’m completely flabbergasted, because I am up for Best Written Weblog in a category with my super pal, Quirky Chrissy, The BLOGGESS (OMG), and The Pioneer Woman. Also in our… Read more »
