Liane Moriarty

Liane Moriarty, author of The Husband’s Secret and this week’s new release, Big Little Lies, writes:

“Childhood experiences are often richer and more intense than anything you experience as an adult. Reading is one of the great pleasures of my life, but not every book brings me that intense, magical pleasure I experienced from reading (almost anything!) as a child. Here are just some of the books that let me re-experience the magic, and I’m so grateful to their authors for giving me that gift.”


Life after Life
By Kate Atkinson

“I had such a sense of movement when I was reading this book, it was as though the author was spinning me round and round leaving me laughing, dizzy, breathless and exhilarated.”


A Corner of White: Book 1 of the Colors of Madeleine
By Jaclyn Moriarty

“This is the first in an extraordinary three-book fantasy series that takes you on an incredible journey between Cambridge, England, and the Kingdom of Cello. (Written by an award-winning YA writer, Jaclyn Moriarty, who happens to be my sister.)”


Range of Motion
By Elizabeth Berg

“I read nothing but Elizabeth Berg novels one summer while I was recovering from a broken heart. By the end of the summer my heart was healed, thanks to all that time I spent losing myself in her beautiful stories, of which this was just one.”


The Time Traveler’s Wife
By Audrey Niffenegger

“I believed it so completely. Her husband really could time-travel. And it was so tricky being married to him!”


We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves
By Karen Joy Fowler

“A wonderful, original story about an unforgettable family. I laughed and cried the whole way through.”
