Welcome to a brand-new month for the Online Book Club! This month, we’re reading Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty.

If you’ve never joined us before, the Online Book Club is a book discussion group that takes place entirely online. Each week, I write a new blog post that talks about different aspects of the book, and you can interact directly with me and other readers by leaving a comment in the comments section. Make sure you check back each week and see what new topics we’re talking about!

Big Little Lies is a compelling story that introduces a mystery right in the first couple of pages. In the first chapter, you’ll learn that a violent crime occurred while parents were attending a trivia night at a local elementary school. We don’t know exactly what occurred that night, but we do know that someone was murdered, and that parents were involved. The rest of the book introduces the main characters and leads us through the events that led to the murder. There are a lot of twisted, interconnected relationships that are fascinating to follow, and the intrigue of the murder will make you want to keep reading to figure out what happened. The ending was really surprising to me—hopefully, it will be surprising to you as well.

Big Little Lies is also a mini-series starring Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman. I’ll post the trailer here, even though I think you should read the whole book before starting the mini-series!

Before you join the discussion next week, make sure to read the first 28 chapters. Don’t be intimidated by that number—the action makes the short chapters fly by really quickly!

I hope to hear from you next week. The discussion will begin February 12.

    This is Greg from the library’s Community Information Department. As a reminder/heads-up: Erin is out again this month, so I’ll be taking over for her in the book discussion. She’s written her blog posts as usual, which will be a great starting point, but I’ll be responding to the comments in her place this month.
