Three Wishes by Liane Moriarty Review

Three Wishes

Australian triplets Lyn, Cat, and Gemma Kettle are about to turn thirty-three and one is pregnant, one has just had her life turned upside down, and one is only just keeping hers from skidding off the fast lane. Meanwhile, their divorced parents have been behaving very oddly indeed.

In this family comedy by Liane Moriarty, we follow the three Kettle sisters through their tumultuous thirty-third year -- as they deal with sibling rivalry and secrets, revelations and relationships, unfaithful husbands and unthinkable decisions, and the fabulous, frustrating life of forever being part of a trio.

I really don't want to start a new book after finishing Three Wishes. I feel like I need to read more about these sisters. I feel so comfortable in their story that I don't want to let go. It's weird having these feelings. I usually can separate reality from fiction but while reading this book the difference kind of got hard to tell apart.

I think they way Moriarty writes her characters is key to why I adore her books so much. Although I may be a stranger to their lifestyles, her characters evoke this feeling of familiarity in me. It's like meeting old friends and then you are like, wait yeah I remember you! After finishing one of Moriarty's book I always feel sad because I won't be spending time with the characters, happy because I got to spend time with them and exhausted because I haven't slept properly in the last two days. I couldn't put this book down!

Three Wishes made me laugh and feel sad in a matter of a few pages. It was up and down with the sisters, but they loved each other so much that no matter what happened between them, in the end, they would still be there for each other. I wish I had a twin sister. I wonder how that would have gone. Free babysitter for sure! But, no, seriously you need to read this book.


  1. I love books that can capture your heart like this one seemed to for you! Fabulous review. I definitely need to read this one. :)

  2. This one definitely sounds like a winner. I hadn't heard of it before, so thanks for sharing!
