Yes, it’s Thursday, not Friday night. The newsletter is arriving in your mailbox a day early today so the staff can enjoy a much-deserved 3 1/2-day weekend.
Last weekend, I had a booklover’s dream weekend as I read two books that were page-turners. First up was BIG LITTLE LIES by Liane Moriarty, which is one of our Summer Reading titles that will be in stores on July 29th. Many of you may remember Liane’s last book, the New York Times bestselling THE HUSBAND’S SECRET. In BIG LITTLE LIES, she looks at three women, each of whom have their secrets that they are putting bright faces on. There’s a bullying scandal among the youngest students and a murder that are gossiped about from various characters in pithy comments from the opening pages. At the start it is not clear who and what is being commented on, but as the pages turn --- and they will turn quickly --- the tension ramps.
