Lately I‘ve been craving these suspenseful, mysterious stories that also are a little light and fun - Liane Moriarty has come through twice this month for me, first with Apples Never Fall and now The Husbands Secret! 🌸

A wonderful last day at the Sydney Writer‘s festival. Today started off with Indira Naidoo & Delia Falconer where I shed a tear, then an interesting free lecture on architecture & cemeteries followed by Diana Reid & Allee Richards, the discovery of Maxine Beneba Clarke, then Liane Moriarty interviewed by Caroline Overington who got very nosy & last of all David Williamson (a playwright who I hated in high school) interviewed by Trent Dalton.

CarolynM Ooooh! Why did you hate David Williamson? I haven‘t been mad about all of his plays, but some of them are brilliant! 6mo
LapReader @CarolynM I appreciate them now but hated studying them at school. He was fascinating to listen to today. You should buy his new book. 6mo
CarolynM Fair enough. Studying any play is enough to take the joy out of it in my mind🙂 I got his book for Christmas but I haven‘t got around to reading it yet. One day soon. 6mo
Jeg Sounds like a very good day. Actually seeing people in the flesh. Seems an age since we‘ve had a writers festival that wasn‘t mainly on screens. 6mo

Typical Moriarty, full of drama, a little mystery, a lot of upper middle class women. It went by pretty fast, kept me engaged, but it‘s not particularly memorable. It‘s my kind of unwind-read, if I‘m not up for a rom-com.

I couldn‘t put this one down! Just like Big Little Lies, Moriarty does a wonderful job of switching between multiple points of view to keep you on your toes. Cecilia Fitzpatrick finds a letter containing her husband‘s darkest secret, meant to be read after he dies. In a Pandoric moment, uncovering this secret while he still lives turns her world upside-down. Would you open the letter if you saw it? Not gonna lie, I think I would 👀

Between paper books and audiobooks I‘m tackling my TBR! Enjoyed the holiday reads. The tagged was good. Second Moriarty. Liked how she showed how interconnected lives could be, and how one act or decision could impact many other lives.

CBee Which other Moriarty have you read? I also really liked 2y
CBee @SW-T haven‘t read that one! Been a bit on the fence about it actually. Did you like? 2y
SW-T @CBee I did, though I have to admit it was kinda quirky and weird in parts, but somehow it all worked, at least for me. What Alice Forgot looks interesting. I‘ll have to add it to my TBR. 2y
CBee @SW-T cool! Maybe one of these days I‘ll read it 😄 2y

This novel was fine. A little too tied-up-in-a-bow, but it worked as an audiobook on walks and doing housework and as a curl-up-on-the-couch paperback, although it was a challenge to shift between the two because the chapters don't line up between the two versions. Curious what other differences there are, but not curious enough to re-read.

Item 23 for the #litsybitsy scavenger hunt is "lane way." I'm not sure we have those in San Diego. This is the closest I've found so far. It smells like eucalyptus and sage.
? The Husband's Secret
? 4.99 miles
I'm alternating between the paperback and the audio for the tagged book and the chapters don't line up. Anyone know why that happens? Different editions for different countries, maybe?

Pedestrian bridge for the #litsybitsy scavenger hunt (item 21). I love pedestrian bridges, but I don't use this one much because it has lots of blind corners around which one can stumble upon someone sleeping.

#litsybitsy scavenger hunt, 10: wild animal. Or at least I think a suburban bunny counts as "wild."

"An inadvertent wife fiercely guarding her husband's secret. A socially phobic wife with her marriage in turmoil. A mother dead set on finding her daughter's murderer. And now their lives converge !"

Even though the plot is witty, biting, clever and interspersed with events evoking some worthwhile introspection, I couldn't help the feeling that some of the chapters were dragged out. Nevertheless an engrossing read.

Loved this audiobook!

Cecilia finds a letter from her husband that is only to be opened if he has died... what could be so horrible he couldn‘t just tell her? Can Cecilia really know this letter exists and not open it?

Could you?

Loved the characters, the ending, and the way each plot had a bit of a finishing line. If you‘re a fan of Moriarty, this should definitely be on your TBR list!

KristenDuck @Pageturner1 you‘ll like it! 3y
Kaila-ann I tried to listen to the audio and got lost. I still have a physical copy on my shelves. 3y
KristenDuck @Kaila-ann you have to straighten out the characters first but once you know each one, it really gets going! 3y
Kaila-ann @KristenDuck I‘ve heard it‘s good but I tend to listen to my books in the car (driving) and ended up completely lost where the book was going lol. I‘ll get to it eventually 😜. 3y

“None of us ever know all the possible courses our lives could have and maybe should have taken”

I was obsessed with this book and never wanted to put it down. The story had me constantly on edge and every emotion the characters felt I felt along with them. It had me smiling, it had me crying, and it had me thinking about life once I was done. 9/10 would recommend!!

Wow! I really flew through this one over the weekend! Haven‘t read a book that fast in a while! I‘m grateful to have a couple more Liane Moriarty books at my disposal! Enjoyed the characters and their arcs and am excited that this is supposed to be a movie with Blake Lively! Definitely a 4 star read. The epilogue was both comical and information supplying which helps explain the otherwise abrupt ending. I thought the book could‘ve kept going!

LiteraryinLawrence This is one of my favorites by her! 3y
MyNamesParadise @LiteraryinLititz I really enjoyed it! A 4 star review definitely. I remember giving Big Little Lies 5 stars and What Alice Forgot 4 stars, but I read both of those years ago. I‘m about to start The Hypnotist‘s Love Story by her! 3y

MyNamesParadise @jenniferajanes agreed! It shows the effects of the simplest things and how what we don‘t know can hurt us. I really enjoyed the book overall and besides the epilogue I thought the book ended at an odd place. I thought it could‘ve kept going! I wanted it to keep going! 3y

Moriarty has written a decent beach book here with three plot lines converging around a secret that it immediately obvious to the reader. The book‘s epilogue drops this from an okay pick to merely so-so. Full review at https://booknaround.blogspot.com/2020/01/review-husbands-secret-by-liane-moriart...

This plot was so similar to Big Little Lies (which I loved)that nothing really came as a surprise to me. I know it was written before Big Little Lies, but it doesn't change that I've read it the other way around.
The predictable plot and the somewhat annoying characters made this my most disappointing read thus far for this year.

Scochrane26 I‘ve read 2 of her books, the first was this one, & haven‘t understood the hype with this author. I haven‘t read BLL though. 3y
Enchanted_Bibliophile @Scochrane26 I read BLL when it was first published. Back then it was a new genre and author and everything was just bright and shiny. Now I wonder how much those things influenced my liking of the book. 3y
