Liane Moriarty is a bestselling Australian author with a large fan following who love her writing style and deft story telling. Big Little Lies debuted at number one on the New York Times bestseller list and has been adapted for television, the series won a host of Emmy Awards and screened early last year. Big Little Lies may just be the first of Moriarty’ works to be adapted to screen, and I will definitely be keeping an eye out to watch what comes next.
Nine Perfect Strangers is the latest Liane Moriarty release and it is already garnering some pretty rave reviews on Goodreads. We have thirty of our members delving into the book this month and I know some are huge fans, there was great interest in the book so I look forward to reading what they all think.
Nine Perfect Strangers takes a group of stressed citysiders to a health and wellness resort called Tranquillum House and promises total transformation.
The retreat participants are keen to immerse themselves in the calming atmosphere, soak up the hot stone massages and drop their baggage.
The resort’s director is a woman determined to reinvigorate bodies and minds and these nine perfect strangers have no idea what they have let themselves in for.
Moriarty user her trademark wit and compassion alongside her ability to understand and explore human behaviour and the connections that can be forged in trying circumstances.
If this is anything like the other works of Moriarty I have read, or watched in the case of Big Little Lies, then I am sure I’m going to love it; and I’m sure there’s going to be twists and turns and a whole lot of the unexpected. I look forward to it, and reading what our members have to say.
My blurb went missing… so now I have to bring you a new one. One that is a little broader too.
I devour books, vampires and supernatural creatures are my genre of choice but over the past couple of years I have broadened my horizons considerably.
I inhale music, hair metal that satisfies my inner bogan is where my musical passion lies, but again I’ve been exposed to lots of different music I wouldn’t normally listen to and have broadened those horizons also.
In a nutshell – I love to write! I love interacting with a diverse range of artists to bring you interviews.
Perhaps we were perfect before – I LOVE WORDS! Reading, writing, speaking, listening – if it’s got words I’m there!
