Lisette's List by Susan Vreeland

I read Lisette's List by Susan Vreeland and savored this novel about art, World War II, and love. If you've read any of Vreeland's other novels, you know she gets into the art world like none other. And her writing is beautiful, to boot!

The Italian Wife by Ann Hood

I'd heard of Ann Hood but had never read her books till now. I enjoyed The Italian Wife, especially at first. As this novel progressed through the generations, I was more ambivalent toward the characters. Some were more interesting than others, just like real people, I guess.

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty

I just finished reading Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty and I loved it!

This novel jumps around with a scene from the climax as the first chapter. Interspersed throughout the book are quotes from characters being interviewed by a reporter after the big event. This process gives lots of great foreshadowing plus hints at what the heck is going to happen.

The book was so well written and even seemed simple at times, but of course Liane Moriarty knew exactly what she was doing with this tactic. I am definitely going to be reading the rest of her books.

Set in Australia, this book felt as universal to me in dealing with how students and parents worldwide probably act. Read it! I'm pretty sure you'll love it.
