  1. I want to be a Kettle sister Ha But I d do anything for some extra excitement Nuff said This is the author s debut I don t see that she has anything to improve on if I was to be honest I just love her original stories, she s got a flair for it.This one in particular shows me we are of the same era I love when the books I read contain little tid bits of pop culture references that I can relate to and really bond with Teletubies and Bananarama s song Venus being a couple of them The Kettle triplet [...]

  2. Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty is a 2016 Penguin publication Originally published in 2003 I had heard so much about Liane Moriarty I put several of her books on hold at the library a little while back I read them as they became available, in no particular order I love, love, love this author s style of writing But, while I cool my heels, still waiting on Truly, Madly, Guilty to become available, at my library, llllooooonnnnnngggg wait ,I reached back deeper into the author s backlisted titles an [...]

  3. 2.5 starsMy least favorite of the authors books Three 33 year old twin sisters and their dramas with husbands, boyfriends, children, parents, and each other It was like reading a three ring circus Perhaps I would have enjoyed it in my own thirties when I was still drinking cosmopolitans Perhaps a warning on the cover Not for mature audiences reader discretion is advised.

  4. This is the story of the Kettle sisters, Gemma, Lyn and Cat, 33 years old triplets two are identical twins and a look at their lives at a pivotal moment in time It s told in each of their voices, transitioning from past to present as they each face a critical issue The dynamics of how they interact with each other is also an important aspect of their story I very much enjoyed this story as the character development was outstanding I felt I truly knew each sister and how they would behave at ever [...]

  5. This is a really enjoyable and totally engaging book written in the author s customary style Chapters are preceded by little anecdotes from strangers who view the main characters antics as outsiders And then we get to meet all those lovely characters and, whether we love them or dislike them, discovering what happens to them becomes compulsive reading If you enjoyed Big Little Lies then you will enjoy this too I guess it does fall into the genre of Chick Lit but it is very good quality Chick Lit [...]

  6. I really like Liane Moriarty The ex advertising copywriter delivers Sydney based tales featuring gritty women who have loud, forthright conversations and live complex, secret ridden lives I ve heard her output described as chic lit, but but this feels like a diminishment of what are uniformly snappy, funny and often hard hitting stories My advice is grab one and judge for yourselves if you re not already a convert, that is.In this book her first we are introduced to triplets, the Kettle sisters [...]

  7. Things I generally try to avoid in my reading aka why I generally don t read adult fiction Very Serious Literature Pregnancy Infidelity Infertility DivorceThings this book prominently contains Pregnancy Infidelity Infertility DivorceAnd yet, a five star rating Nuff said.

  8. Definitely not my favorite Liane Moriarty.This book follows a similar format as her other books with the book opening with a dramatic and very public argument in a restaurant as they celebrate their 33rd birthday together The book then goes back to the events leading up to the big blowout to provide some context.Having read quite a few Liane Moriarty the twists and turns in this book were predictable, and I felt like this is one of my least favorite of her books due to the ending Moriarty is usu [...]

  9. How have I only just properly discovered Aussie author Liane Moriarty I loved this book, and can t believe it s her first novel she now has many under her belt it s so richly written I kept seeing Liane s name about the place, then was drawn to reading her debut tome as it s about triplet sisters and I m preggers with twins Well, I will definitely be searching out of her titles.The Kettle sisters depicted and their various partners, exes and rellies all seem so real and will live on in your mi [...]

  10. This is only my second Liane Moriarty novel I didn t expect to enjoy it as much as her popular Big Little Lies, but I did.It may not be literary fiction, but Moriarty can write characters incredibly well Most importantly, their stories are so relatable, so real It goes without saying that being about triplet sisters made things even interesting as most of us are intrigued by twins, triplets and so on Moriarty masterfully interspersed bystanders povs with the sisters It works really well to con [...]

  11. A stong 4 out of 5.Another funny, drama filled, soap opera like, juuuuicy novel from Liane Moriarty and it s crept in my favourites from her.The story follows three triplet sisters, in their thirties, who all have very different personalities and outlooks on life and explores how their complex relationships with each other withstand all the dramas that life throws at them Spoiler alert a lot.Despite all their dramas and some dark themes being explored, the author is SO good at still creating hum [...]

  12. The story about the Kettle triplets over the course of their thirty third year Cat, Gemma and Lyn Kettle are a strange sight when they are together and their lives take turns over the next year that no one could foresee Right from the beginning I was hooked as the book opens to the sisters celebrating their Thirty fourth birthday The story then jumps back to the previous year and all that has happened in the fascinating triplets lives The story is told from multiple perspectives I found it relat [...]

  13. The characters the dialogue and the quirky situations make me wish I could jump right into this book and into their lives, such fun spirited characters, the story revolves around triplet sisters, they have a heathly or is that unhealthy dependence on each other bordering on a love hate relationship that brings the most bizarre and fun encounters which, having this book set in Sydney and surrounding suburbs makes it that much better, feeling ever so familiar This is Liane Moriarty s debut book, I [...]

  14. I normally love books by Liane Moriarty, and while Three Wishes was a fun and interesting book, it doesn t exactly hold up to the expectations I have for this author I suppose I can forgive her since this was her debut novel I really liked the pace of this book Stories that drag tend to bore me, as I m sure they do most people There was always something happening or some type of drama needing to be resolved in this story I really particularly love how, at least in all of the stories I have read [...]

  15. Three Wishes was Lianne Moriarity s first novel, and it s not surprising She s really come a long way since this one Or should I say, she and her characters have really matured over time I was not following, understanding, or caring about anyone here at first But the I got to know the characters, or really just Gemma the triplet who was fraternal , the I liked it The other two triplets were identical twins, so Gemma was unique and her sisters let her know how different she was I didn t care f [...]

  16. Well, this was not exactly very good It changes p.o.v between the 3 sisters and also has little pointless excerts from a strangers p.o.v that is never discussed in the book It really doesn t go anywhere and I didn t learn anything Lyn is married to her husband once a married man whose marriage she ruined , a 2 year old terror of a daughter, and a teen step daughter teen says it all She runs a small breakfast catering company and has the perfect life Really, she has no issues Gemma, is the whishy [...]

  17. Three wishes, three women who are triplets It was a good read with some real laugh out loud moments What a wacky family Favourite character was Maddie.

  18. Oh how I m going to miss Gemma, Lyn, and Cat I loved these characters The fact that they were there for each other through thick and thin, that they were flawed, just endeared them to me This book made me laugh even when dealing with some tough subjects Another one of my favorites

  19. Three Wishes is a standalone novel written by the amazing Liane Moriarty Based on publication dates, this title appears to be her first novel at least her first book listed on As good as Three Wishes is, I can honestly say she has gotten better and better with each novel Three Wishes follows three thirty three year old triplet sisters and describes a year in their lives when their worlds are turned upside down The way the story and POV s are set up creates some time hopping which was a bit distr [...]

  20. Originally posted here.One of my goals this year is to do readalongs because they re a lot of fun I read Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty along with two good friends, Janice and Holly I first discovered Liane Moriarty, Australian author of contemporary fiction, when I read What Alice Forgot last year I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to read the rest of her books The cute cupcake cover for Three Wishes is deceiving I thought I d be reading a book about quirky triplets, something light and fun Ma [...]

  21. It is actually a 3.5 stars rounded up to 4.I have some mixed feelings about this book, on one side, it gripped me from the start, and I liked reading it I had difficulties putting it down, which is the good part However, upon finishing it, I was left with a bittersweet after taste This book made me nervous, and left me unsatisfied.The writing style at the beginning is a bit confusing, but once you get used to it, it becomes enjoyable It is the story of three twins, and the narrative perspective [...]

  22. This is the third book I ve read by Liane Moriarty and I think one of the reasons I ve notched five stars for all of them is not because I necessarily enjoyed reading them but because I couldn t stop thinking about them Three Wishes also tackles uncomfortably sticky relationships with friends and siblings and spouses My brain keeps spinning on what ifs and how decisions we make spin off an impossibly intertwined sequence of events As always, she succeeds in getting the readers to realize life is [...]

  23. 3.5 stars A lot of people complain about formula writing, but every now and again especially when I m very busy I enjoy picking up a book and knowing exactly what to expect Three wishes did not dissapoint and I had loads of giggles and shed a tear or two, which is precisely what I wanted I enjoyed reading about the relationship between the sisters, even if their personalities where a bit stereotyped, but my favorite character was the mom A quick bit of escapism.The Story Lyn, Cat, and Gemma Kett [...]

  24. A quick, easy read about triplets who are in their early thirties Some laughs, a few sad moments, predicable summer read.

  25. Attracting attention wherever they go, the triplets Gemma, Cat and Lyn Kettle couldn t be different or closer Gemma is the flighty one and can t seem to hold onto a job, or a boyfriend to save her life While sarcastic Cat has always been in control and ready to take charge especially when it comes to her job and her marriage And organized Lyn seems to have it all the career, the loving husband, and the kids As these three independent yet devoted sisters get ready to celebrate their thirty fourt [...]

  26. I really enjoyed this book I was gonna say adored it but I m not sure if it s a lifelong adoration or a moment in time adoration But the important thing is I really enjoyed this title while I read it It s especially relatable to those of us with weird dysfunctional families who mean well and laugh out loud funny while tackling serious moments in life It s about the individual s lives but also the life of A FAMILY, despite little things like the parents of the original family for the purpose of t [...]

  27. I choose to read this book because my local library is doing a reader choice awards and it was one of the previous years winners Although I find that hard to believe that it won a reader s choice awards Gemma is one of the Triplets that is lacking in the brains department, Lyn is the overachiever and Cat is the one on the brink of major meltdown I get what they went through but the story kept bouncing back and forth between present and the past It was like I was reading a story with ADHD Here we [...]

  28. This was just what I needed after several rather tough and trying crime novels Moriarty s books I should say, are not your typical chic lit They feel real and part of reality is sometimes tragedy This is not to say that humor or happiness is lacking, but there is always some element of real life that keeps these books from veering into the pink fluff areaREE WISHES is the story or triplets, Lyn, Cat, and Gemma, who are all quite different but are bound to each other by the ties of family and fri [...]
