    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 the [...]

    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 ba [...]

    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 a [...]

    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 [...]

    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, [...]

    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 u [...]

    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 more 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 more of her titles.The Kettle sisters depicted and their various partners, exes and rellies all seem so real and will 'li [...]

    10. 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 h [...]

    11. This is only my second Liane Moriarty novel. I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as her more 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 more interesting as most of us are intrigued by twins, triplets and so on. Moriarty masterfully interspersed bystanders' povs with the sisters'. It works rea [...]

    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 [...]

    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, [...]

    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 [...]

    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 more I got to know the characters, or really just Gemma (the triplet who was fraternal), the more I liked it. The other two triplets were identical twins, so Gemma was more unique and her sisters let her know how different she w [...]

    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 [...]

    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 more. 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 bi [...]

    20. Originally posted here.One of my goals this year is to do more 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 a [...]

    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 perspect [...]

    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 realiz [...]

    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 Gem [...]

    24. לין, קאת וג'מה הן שלישית אחיות בשנתן ה 33. שנה בה אירועים מכריעים קורים לשלושתן. בפרקים מתחלפים בין הדמויות העבר וההווה של האחיות משתלבים לסיפור פנורמי של אהבה וחברות אמיצים.האם והאב התגרשו כשהיו צעירות. חייהן מתעצבים בצל הגירושים והצורך לנקוט עמדה ובצל האישיות של האחיות.ספר ש [...]

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

    26. Attracting attention wherever they go, the triplets Gemma, Cat and Lyn Kettle couldn't be more 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 t [...]

    27. 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 [...]

    28. 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. He [...]

    29. 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 an [...]
