Pirriwee Public's annual school Trivia Night has ended in a shocking riot. One parent is dead. The school principal is horrified. As police investigate what appears to have been a tragic accident, signs begin to indicate that this devastating death might have been cold-blooded murder. In this thought-provoking novel, number-one New York Times best-selling author Liane Moriarty deftly explores the reality of parenting and playground politics, ex-husbands and ex-wives, and fractured families.
Incredibly well written tale about women, mothers, communities, and the small and big violence that can be both common and uncommon. As a survivor of domestic violence, I found the author’s depiction of the characters’ relationships to be scarily accurate. The women were complicated, quirky and endearing. I was on the edge of my seat and didn’t see the curveball coming at the end... fabulous plot twist, great novel.

After a violent coup in the United States overthrows the Constitution and ushers in a new government regime, the Republic of Gilead imposes subservient roles on all women. Offred, now a Handmaid tasked with the singular role of procreation in the childless household of the enigmatic Commander and his bitter wife, can remember a time when she lived with her husband and daughter and had a job, before she lost everything, even her own name.
Claire Danes performed this perfectly. I thoroughly enjoyed this listen. Margaret Atwood is brilliant and the book was amazing.
In his newest collection of essays, David Sedaris lifts the corner of ordinary life, revealing the absurdity teeming below its surface. His world is alive with obscure desires and hidden motives, a world where forgiveness is automatic and an argument can be the highest form of love. Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim is another unforgettable collection from one of the wittiest and most original writers at work today.
Intelligent humor. Some dark/mature themes and adult humor/language. I laughed out loud throughout the whole book. "Six to Eight Black Men" made my husband and I laugh so hard we cried!
As women everywhere will attest, when it comes to understanding female sexuality, most guys know more about what's under the hood of a car than under the hood of a clitoris. And while it seems that men have struggled valiantly since the dawn of time to find ways to reliably elicit the female orgasm, rare is the guy who has the modesty to ask: "What do I do?" Ironically, the answer has always been right there on the tip of his tongue.
Super educational and informative, even for a woman. Can't wait to test this out with my husband...

Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from society and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself?
1) I wish Brené Brown narrated this herself!
2) I could listen to this over and over... although I enjoyed the Audible, this is the kind of book that deserves a hard copy, a highlighter, and a pen for making notes. It's chock full of wisdom I need to ACTUALLY apply to my life.
