Throwback Thursday is a meme created by Renee at It’s Book Talk to share old favorite books rather than just the new shiny ones. This is a great idea to bring back to life some much-loved books. Please feel free to join in.
My choice for this week is:
What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
Published May 27 1, 2009 by Penguin Books
Alice is twenty-nine. She adores sleep, chocolate, and her ramshackle new house. She’s newly engaged to the wonderful Nick and is pregnant with her first baby.
There’s just one problem. All of that was ten years ago . . .
Alice has slipped in a step-aerobics class, hit her head and lost a decade. Now she’s a grown-up, bossy mother of three in the middle of a nasty divorce and her beloved sister Elisabeth isn’t speaking to her. This is her life but not as she knows it.
Clearly Alice has made some terrible mistakes. Just how much can happen in a decade?
Can she ever get back to the woman she used to be?
I’ve read all of Liane Moriarty’s novels and this is definitely one of my favorites. A bump on the head and suddenly ten years have passed… Alice can’t remember a thing. And it seems that a lot has gone wrong over the years as she finds out she’s not speaking to her sister AND she’s getting a divorce.
I absolutely loved this novel and really want to read it again. I remember that I had to rush through the last quarter of the book as it was due back at the library. I remember finishing it in the car on the way to the library. We were going out of town and had to drop it off on the way.
“What Alice Forgot” was a thought-provoking, unique, and hilarious read that I can’t wait to read again!
