A beautiful and distinguished family.
A private island.
A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive.
A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lies upon lies.
True love.
The truth.

We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from New York Times bestselling author, National Book Award finalist, and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart. 
Read it.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.



Huh. Well, it wasn't exactly what I was expecting... I can't even say too much about this because it's obviously a mystery and that's the whole thing with this book: no one knows much about it until they start reading. However, I will say this: E. Lockhart's prose is beautiful. She has a gorgeous style that made me love reading her work and it was honestly half the reason why I enjoyed the book and kept reading. The story was interesting, but I also felt kind of disconnected from the characters, and I'm not sure if that was an intentional part of the book or not, but it kind of made me not care too much. I did think the whole mystery was interesting enough, but the book still wasn't as WOW as I was expecting it to be. 




Happy reading!

  1. Such a shame you didn't enjoy it. This was probably my favorite book I read all last year. I read it in like 3 hours and bawled my eyes out afterwards. I just loved it. The prose was beautiful and I really had no clue what direction it was going in until the reveal, which doesn't happen to me often.

  2. The ending was kinda vague and I would have wanted to know more about what happened to Cady. But I think it fit the vague and mysterious way the whole thing was written. It was enigmatic through and through and will keep you guessing and on the edge of your seat from beginning to end.
