Best of the Bunch: January 2015

Today I'm sharing the best book I read in January.

Of the nine books I read this month, only one earned a 5-star review from me, and it is definitely the best of the bunch!

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty was a totally compelling read. It has the feel of a murder mystery, except everyone's dirty secrets come out long before you actually learn who died. It delves into heavy topics like childhood bullying and domestic violence in a frighteningly realistic way. Moriarty's greatest talent is in perfectly capturing how people think — the defensiveness, the guilt, the doubt, the rationalizing. It's painful and honest and voyeuristic and just so well done.
