WE WERE LIARS by E.Lockhart | Read Log

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 National Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart. Read it. And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.

Hello people of the internet,

I've started reading this book because one of the YouTubers I follow recommended it. Looked it up on Goodreads, seemed to have good score, didn't read any reviews in fear that it would spoil my experience with it - for that I am grateful.

The story line was very slot in the beginning and kept being so until almost 80% done, then it starts to unravel. Since starting this book, I felt very query about the dodgy characters surrounding the main character. I realize the reason why.

Some people are finishing this in one sitting, for some it is hard to get into because of the self-centered narratives in the beginning. (well, almost through-out the whole book) This is a read for when you're chilling and not really doing anything serious or think that much. Not a must-read, but a good-read.

Best,
- Anu
