What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty is a great holiday read, perfect metro commute book, or just an easy book to keep by your bed and pick up when you have a few spare minutes before falling to sleep at night. Yes, it’s more of a “chick lit” book, but sometimes those are refreshing after reading something heavier (aka Unbroken).
I found this book on a “must read” list, and finally it was one that held true to the list title (unlike this one…). This book is an easy read with hysterical rants. I actually felt I came away with a new outlook on life (a small change, but still).
Would the “you” of ten/five/two years ago like the “you” of today? Do you have the same values, goals, interests? Every now and again we need to take a few minutes to reflect on life and tweak things if we see we got off track somewhere. Life is tough, and sometimes it can throw you. But pull an Alice and be confident enough to tell life to back off and start to make changes for the better.
After I finished the book and looked it up to write this little review, I realized Liane Moriarty has also written two other books I’ve recently read, The Husband’s Secret and Big Little Lies. Her books touch on very serious life topics, but in a lighthearted way that is easy to relate to. All in all, I strongly recommend What Alice Forgot to any girl looking for an entertaining read with some hidden larger life takeaways mixed in.
Suggestions for my next read are appreciated :) Thanks in advance!
