I’m getting this out of the way up-front I have not read the book. With that said, I completely loved and adored the tv show. I need to rewatch it soon. I cannot wait for season 2, which comes out in June. I’m already exited about the post I’ll get to write!
This is one of those shows that I was kept on the edge the entire time. The plot had so many twists that I was never really sure what was going to happen next. If you haven’t watched it do yourself a favor and start! You will not regret it. It’s about family, friends, small communities, secrets, and scandal. I might end up still reading the book at some point. I know if I ask die hard fans will probably say it is a must read book!
What I really took away from this show is my love for Reese Witherspoon. She is a flawless woman. I remember in Sweet Home Alabama I wanted her hair and sass! Then in Legally Blonde there was some more hair and wardrobe envy! Pink! I wanted everything in pink and wanted to go to Law School, “What, like it’s hard?” She’s become a southern icon of beauty and grace! She only gets better with age!
The following are traits I loved and related to with her and her character Madeline:
I identify way too much with Madeline in her attitude towards life (most of the time)
2. I want Madeline’s house. That kitchen alone is worth killing for. It is GORGEOUS and PERFECT! My dream house includes that kitchen and view. Though the view might be a little difficult in my landlocked part of the country.
3. Good or Bad Anything is possible. Either way you might as well look Spectacular.
With all of that said, I promise I’m not a bad person. I’m a just little high strung but what working mama isn’t, a tiny bit psycho—I really blame working with preteens/teens & living in a small town, and I always tell the truth—that seems like a good thing, but has its downfalls!
What did you love or hate about the show? What did you think of the book?
Is there another kitchen or ocean view I should be coveting?
For those of you who loved Big Little Lies what are your go-to books?
