My Loves Lately…..

Hey guys….. we all made it thru the dreaded Monday didn’t we? I swear I barely did……I have been battling a migraine now for the past 24 hours….typical me. But lets push that aside because I want to share with you all 3 things I am LOVING lately! A Book, A Movie and a TV show!!!

Sometimes it’s the little lies that turn out to be the most lethal. . . .
A murder… . . . a tragic accident… . . . or just parents behaving badly?
What’s indisputable is that someone is dead. But who did what?
Big Little Lies follows three women, each at a crossroads: Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny and biting, passionate, she remembers everything and forgives no one. Her ex-husband and his yogi new wife have moved into her beloved beachside community, and their daughter is in the same kindergarten class as Madeline’s youngest (howis this possible?). And to top it all off, Madeline’s teenage daughter seems to be choosing Madeline’s ex-husband over her. (How. Is. This. Possible?).
Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare. While she may seem a bit flustered at times, who wouldn’t be, with those rambunctious twin boys? Now that the boys are starting school, Celeste and her husband look set to become the king and queen of the school parent body. But royalty often comes at a price, and Celeste is grappling with how much more she is willing to pay. New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and harbors secret doubts about her son. But why? While Madeline and Celeste soon take Jane under their wing, none of them realizes how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all.
Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.

 I loved Big Little Lies, I loved the style it was written in where you know what happens at the end but the book is a puzzle to finding out who did it! This was the perfect Summer read with a little murder mixed into my Chick Lit! If you are looking for your end of Summer read then pick this one up!!!!

 SO I read this book last year and of course loved it but when the movie came out I was never able to go see it sadly. 2 weeks ago this movie came out OnDemand and since then I have watched this around 4 times! I absolutely fell in LOVE with this movie. This book was brought to life perfectly and the actors were brilliant. Ansel who plays Gus made me fall completely in love with him which really sets you up for an emotional break down at the end but I loved it. I loved everything about this movie and yes, even I….the girl who never cries in movies bawled my little eyes out in this one. But when the movie was over I wanted to hug it…..I wanted to immediately watch it again. I cannot say enough about this movie….you must watch this even if you haven’t read the book. 5 stars!!!!!!!!!!!

Would you like to know how I have spent the last the past 85 hours of my life????? On my couch with Charlie Hunnam and the Sons. I will have to brag that even though this is kinda depressing I watched all 85 episodes to catch up to the final season last week in a little over 3 weeks. To say I loved this show is an understatement. And yes, I started it because I have a HUGE crush on Charlie Hunnam but I fell in love with the show and everyone in it. I am so sad that I fall in love and the final season started last week, typical! You guys….. I would never have thought I would love a show about a biker gang but boy do I ever! If you need a new netflix watch here it is! And ya, let me know when you are gaga for Jax!!!!!!

    I may have to check out that book. I loved the movie too. I am not a pretty crier so, I fought the tears back in the theater for FIOS. When you posted it was OnDemand I could not wait to watch it at home. For some reason it was not on AT&T U-verse. I was so disappointed. Maybe it will be this weekend. Don't know about SOA, that is like Walking Dead, and a few other Netflix shows, just can't seem to get into them. Hope the migraine goes away soon.
