Last line: But even if she got ten years or more, it didnt really matter...theyd all get what they deserved in the end.
Ehhh. The book was very slooooow paced. It was suspenseful and it kept you wanting to find out what happened and what the true story was but it just didnt do it for me. The ending was full of twists and turns but still everything felt predictable. Wouldnt recommend.
Great engrossing read. Give yourself some time because the moment you pick this up you'll want to read in one sitting. Characters may be not so likable but the plot is so good and the mystery element will keep you guessing and there's plenty of surprises along the way.
This book had so many surprises inside! This book starts out in the 1980s but the very next chapter is set in 2017 and it keeps going back and forth between every chapter. At first the 2 stories seem unrelated but slowly pieces start to fit together and you make connections. Psychological thrillers have been my most enjoyable reads lately and this one sits towards the top of my favorites!
I really couldn‘t put this down. Super twisty and creepy. If you liked We Need to Talk about Kevin or Baby Teeth, this had some interesting similarities. So glad to have gotten to read this. It was truly an awesome pick. I‘ll be sending it back to its origin this weekend 😊 #lmpbc
Luke‘s sister, Emily, disappeared years ago and now Luke himself has disappeared. This is a good, dark, twisty thriller with a wicked ending. It had me saying, “wait, what?” at least once and I didn‘t figure it out early. I would definitely read this author again. #botm
Making my way through my towering #botm pile! Hoping this thriller doesn‘t disappoint ✌️
I am trying to clear my #unreadbotmbooks from my tbr. This is a short 300 pages so should be a quick forgettable thriller. I don‘t have very high hopes for this one.
An unputdownable pych thriller with multiple twists following two narrators and time periods. I loved its clever storyline and found it intriguing trying to figure out the puzzle pieces. And that Hannah was so deeply demented she gave me the chills. I highly recommend this #botm club pick - chalked full of disturbing secrets and lies it‘ll sure keep you guessing, it did me! 👍🏻 4.5 stars
This arrived yesterday! The package was a little beat up and dirty so I don‘t know what happened on its journey but it‘s safely to its destination. I love thrillers so I am excited to get reading!

Devoured this one as quickly as my leftover holiday desserts! Lots of good twists, really kept me guessing.
Clara's boyfriend Luke goes missing one night. When Clara realizes he hasn't come home, she goes looking for him, trying to figure out what happened. As she digs, she gets drawn deeper and deeper into numerous mysteries, including what happened to Luke's sister Emily who disappeared twenty years before. This is a twisty, turny thriller that kept me reading late into the night. #TheLiesWeTold #CamillaWay #NetGalley
I did enjoy this book, however I had higher hopes for the ending. It lacked structure for me. I found myself identifying with Clara the more I learned about her as a character. I felt her emotions on every page... almost like I'd been there before personally.
Moral of the story: Be careful who you trust - no matter who they are.
Clara‘s boyfriend, Luke, goes missing. There are many layers to get to the bottom of everything in this one. It started out slow for me but then it is twist after twist and a straight up moment when I said “Holy Sh*t” out loud while reading. I can‘t say I was really rooting for any of the characters but getting to the bottom of the mystery was more than enough to keep me engaged throughout.
Average thriller. Pretty insane and reasonably creepy ‘bad‘ guy (girl). Most of the characters were fairly unlikeable; the main character wasn‘t particularly objectionable but she wasn‘t very interesting or sympathetically written, either. A few twists, mostly uninteresting secrets...but fast-paced enough to not pan it all-together.
A quick and fun read. Some twists were predictable, some were a bit more surprising. I mentioned before that it had a few editing errors that were annoying, but overall a good thriller.
Jus finished my pick for #lmpbc! It was crazy (in a good way) and the twists kept coming! @cwarnier I‘ll mail this to you on Monday, but I don‘t have your address. Did I miss an email with the group addresses?
This was my #BOTM pick for October. Overall, it was an engaging book that I enjoyed reading. It was actually pretty perfect for me right now, as I am having trouble reading anything too heavy. This one kept me interested and turning pages. It was fun to try and figure out the mystery as I read.
Holy smokes! The Lies We Told is a rollercoaster of a ride with so many twists and turns. I devoured the book in one day. All you need to know is that Clara‘s boyfriend, Luke, goes missing. Sorry for being brief, but the less you know the better the book will be.
Congrats Carrie! 😘😘 You were my first Litsy gift swap partner and I couldn‘t be happier to have gotten to know you more since then! 🤗🤗
I have loved so many books this year, but this is one of my most recent favorites! It really grabbed my attention from the first page and I couldn‘t put it down. I read an e #arc of it, but it was good enough to own so I ordered a physical copy for my bookshelf! I highly recommend #thelieswetold! #70kgiveaway
Absorbing from the very first pages, this #BOTM pick certainly kept me turning the pages! While I didn‘t really like any of the characters, I still wanted to know what would happen next! And the ending is certainly begging for a sequel!!
