If You'll Miss "Big Little Lies," Crack Open one of These Mommy-Drama Filled Novels

I’m not going to tell you to read “Girl on the Train” or “Gone Girl,” don’t worry. What Liane Moriarty did for the general public with “Big Little Lies” is in a category all its own, and if anything, you should go give her anthology a hearty read-through. What I will do is suggest eight other novels that come with enough scandal, mommy drama and wit to get you through this dark time without “Big Little Lies.” It’s all but guaranteed that we won’t be getting a third season, after all. Until you find your next HBO obsession, one (or all) of these novels should keep your thirst for spectacle at bay.
