The Book Club One with Truly Madly Guilty

Full disclosure I wrote the below review in February of 2018. Now it is almost a year later. OOPS. Since I wrote this, I have finished reading all of Liane Moriarty's books. AND I have her newest book, Nine Perfect Strangers, in my queue right now. I love Moriarty's writing even more than I did when I read Truly Madly Guilty. She amazes me. And I can't wait to break into Nine Perfect Strangers!

Book #5

This book's title really encompasses each character, and I truly, madly love that each character of the novel is an example of the title. Since watching Big Little Lies, I have made it my goal to read all of Liane Moriarty's books. The way she writes from each character's perspective fuels my insomniatic reading. This was the third book of hers that I have read. I found it at Goodwill for $1 and got all giddy to take it home and get through it as quickly as possible. I will confess, that I saw the big event coming from a mile away, thank you context clues. And the ending was mostly predictable besides a few small factors that I hadn't guessed in my head. While I do not particularly like reading or watching anything that I can guess the end of, the reason that I love to read Liane's books is that they are somewhat of a murder mystery without detective work.  Basically, I go into the book trying to detect my way to discovering the end before I reach it. This one just happened to be easier to figure out.  I don't want to give too much away, so this book report will be short. But you should definitely read it. Five stars for sure. I loved reading it, own it, and will read it again (to see what additional foreshadowing I missed this first time). And I would recommend the book to anyone who reads anything.
