Welcome to the J+G Book Club!
As we mentioned last week, the Jules + Gem HI lifestyle is inspired by the essence of hygge, the Danish quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being. In our previous blog post, we covered one of our fave hygge hobbies, interior design (specifically, coffee table decor). This week we're naming another one of our favorite hygge pastimes, reading! Every other month, we'll share a new book that we're currently reading or even re-reading (because we love it so much!). Snuggle up with a book in hand and a candle lit for a cozy activity, perfect for fall.

This month we're reading: Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
You may all be familiar with this novel being that it's now a popular HBO TV series starring Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman, among other well-known stars. See below for the synopsis–trust us, after reading it you'll already be hooked!
This #1 New York Times bestselling novel is about the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive. A murder...A tragic accident...Or just parents behaving badly? What's indisputable is that someone is dead. Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She's funny, biting, and passionate; she remembers everything and forgives no one. Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare but she is paying a price for the illusion of perfection. New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for a nanny. She comes with a mysterious past and a sadness beyond her years. These three women are at different crossroads, but they will all wind up in the same shocking place. Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the little lies that can turn lethal.
Happy Hygge Reading!
