I subscribe to Real Simple magazine and I was intrigued by their "No Obligation Book Club." You had me at "no." Here's their description: You’d love to join a book club—if it operated on your ideal schedule. And now you can: Be a part of Real Simple’s online No-Obligation Book Club. See what we’re reading now, what we’ve already read, what noted authors have revealed to us in exclusive Q&A’s, and more.
Big Little Lies is their September pick...
Sometimes it’s the little lies that turn out to be the most lethal. . .
Set in an Australian suburb, Big Little Lies focuses on three women, all of whom have children at the same preschool. One is a great beauty married to a fabulously rich businessman; they have a “perfect” set of twins. One is the can-do mom who can put together a mean pre-school art project but can’t prevent her teenage daughter from preferring her divorced dad. The third is a withdrawn, single mother who doesn’t quite fit in. Right from the start--thanks to a modern “Greek chorus” that narrates the action--we know that someone is going to end up dead.
You had me a the cover art. I'm not deep. It's how I roll. Oh, and if you want to subscribe to Real Simple magazine, The Container Store has an offer right now to receive a $10 gift card with a paid subscription. Go to RealSimpleOffer.com for details.
