After finishing Assassin's Apprentice I was undecided about what to read next. it's hard to follow up a book like that, and I considered just going straight to the next book in the series, but I decided to take a break instead - and I'm glad I did. I decided to read Big Little Lies simply because it was one of the oldest things on my Kindle, and I generally have a read it or delete it rule. I always forget how amazing Liane Moriaty is. When I started this, I was thinking "I'm not in the mood for chick lit", but that's not what this book is doing. It explores really big issues - bullying, family violence, blended families, abuse - while still being light and breezy. It a great read. I'm nearly at the end and I really, really, really want to know what happens. I'm working form home today and doing revisions on things I've written (a task i find tedious) so I'm using finishing this book as an incentive to get on with it.
