After reading The Librarian of Auschwitz, I needed something lighter. Now, a book about a woman losing her memory may not seem lighter, but I love the writing. I’d never read anything by Liane Moriarty, which I realize now how much I was missing out.
What Alice Forgot starts with a woman, Alice, falling off a bike at spin class and hitting her head. This causes her to forget a chunk of her life where some significant changes happened.
I finished this book in a day and a half because I had to just. keep. reading. The characters were great, the way it was written was interesting and kept my attention, and I was just hooked.
The book also made me think about how seemingly small changes add up to big change. How people come in and out of your life and how that affects you. I finished the book a week ago, and I’m still thinking about that.
Also, you better believe I binge watched Big Little Lies after reading this. I recommend that as well, but one of the stars of the show is the soundtrack. I’m listening to that as I write this.
Perhaps I’ll go back and read that someday, but next on my list is Nine Perfect Strangers. One, because I owned it already (thanks, Book of the Month – my referral code there!) and two, because I want more of Moriarty’s writing in my life. Stay tuned for that review!
