This was meh. It‘s entertaining if you‘re looking for an easy thriller, but it‘s nothing groundbreaking. #audiobook (TW for a disturbing sexual assault)

It was ok, I felt like it dragged a little and the timelines confused me until 2/3 in.

A decent twist wasn't enough for me on this one, I'm afraid. I feel like you never truly get to the root of the characters and their motivations, it all stays very surface level and contrived. You also really need to suspend disbelief to buy that the "diary" chapters were written by an 11-yr old ?

(? another day, another book, another brunch ?)

I enjoyed this chilling tale of sister. There was one part that was a big sick but the rest was fine. The book alternates between a childhood diary, the present where Amber Taylor is in a coma, and the events leading up to the accident. This book was so twisted that I think I understand the ending but I am not positive. Really good read! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

cj82487 I listened to this one and the narrator did such a good job telling the story. It definitely caught me by surprise in the end 2w

4⭐⭐⭐⭐

mandi1082 This book starts of with the main protagonist in a coma who cant move, cant speak but can hear everyone around her.

This book is soooooo hard to rate because it had me interested from the beginning. Was an easy read the book was under 300 pages, but left me a little confused at the end with a lot of questions that weren't answered.

mandi1082 After thinking about it for a few hours and reading other reviews I wasnt the only one that felt this way. I did enjoy the little twist and turns. I would recommend the read. 1mo

I‘m giving this a “pick.”
I think.
It was unsettling, with a fair amount of twists and turns. At the end I was left scratching my head, trying to figure out what I just read. 🤷‍♀️. I may have to refer to the written version (vs. audio) to get a better grip on things. This is for book club, which is fortunate, because I think a discussion is definitely in order for this one!

A slow twisty thriller, with delightful unreliable characters. The twists wee subtle, but still surprising. While not as strong as GONE GIRL, it has similar vibes. Book 8/30 for #bfcr2

All 3 books were part of my June TBR and I haven‘t gotten to any of them yet! 😱 It‘s partially because I started two unplanned ARCs and partially because life thwarts reading plans, you know? I am hoping to get to them at some point #thissummer and I *might* be able to start one before the month ends. If I am able to, what one do you think I should I start? #songsofsummer @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

OriginalCyn620 Life does have a way of interrupting our plans! The only one of those I‘m familiar with is Sometimes I Lie and I haven‘t read my copy either! 2mo

Finally finished this one... can‘t say I‘d recommend it.

I was put off by the narrator - I didn‘t like not knowing what to believe and what was unreal. Basically Amber is in a coma, and we, the readers, hear her thoughts as she tries to piece her life back together in her mind.

We also experience visitors who may or may not actually be there.

I found it confusing and not as entertaining as I had hoped it would be. So just a “meh” rating.

This was OK. It was confusing and I did not like the nonlinear timeline. I was not really invested. Entertaining, barely. Memorable, not. Unique, not even close.

I‘m about halfway through this one and it‘s enjoyable enough. I can‘t say I‘m a huge fan of unreliable narrators but I‘m still curious with what is going to happen...

In this book, the main character, Amber Reynolds, says there are three things you have to know about her.

What three things do you think everyone should know about YOU?

Mixed on this novel (it was selected for one of two book clubs I'm in), mostly because of the unreliability of the narrator(s) and the pacing/detail/predictable elements. And the characters need help. Serious help. All of them.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sometimes I Lie is a page turner. There is an unsettling feeling about our unreliable narrator that ebbs and flows throughout the story. Quick read & intriguing, I flew through it. This book was pretty graphic at times & disturbing (NOT as disturbing as I Know Who You Are. I‘m still asking myself what the heck?) I‘ll def be following Feeney‘s work! I know now to expect her stories to “go there” 😂 if that makes sense #sometimesilie 💫

This book had the potential to be a "perfect" mystery/thriller. However, the authors plot twists near the end of the book were unrealistic and a little confusing ?
Overall score 4.0/5.0

This was a fast paced thriller with lots of twists and turns but some parts I felt were a bit gratuitous and far-fetched. Perhaps that‘s the point of a thriller and maybe it‘s just not my favorite genre. I keep getting suckered in to picking them up again though!

I really enjoyed this book in the beginning and thought it was going to be a solid thriller, but as it went on, it got to be a bit slow and drug out. The twist was a good one, but I did start to suspect it towards the middle. Not bad, but I didn‘t love this one.
