The ending to this book... I did NOT expect. One of the best plot twists I‘ve ever read. Loved it! This book is written so well... a quick read for the summer as the chapters are short and they end in ways that make you want to keep reading. Romantic, mysterious, well-written... Definitely one that I recommend!

LiteraryinLititz I liked it too! Her more recent book Genuine Fraud was NOT as good, in my opinion. 1w
Jacki_Reads @LiteraryinLititz I had a student blow through a lot of her books this year, and this is the one that had the best reviews. I may stay away from that one... thank you! 1w

My #summer pick is We Were Liars. I really enjoyed this book and didn't see the end coming, which for me is a big deal because usually I know what's about to happen.

1) It has to make me feel something. For example, we were liars made me have a roller coaster of emotions and left me speechless!
2) anything cat related! I have 3 cats and I‘m so obsessed with them, so anything cat related
3) I am the WORST cook, my boyfriend does all of the cooking I burn or undercook everything!
4) I‘m honestly not big into poetry. Probably Edgar Allen Poe
5) @jmbooks welcome!

Wouldn't recommend the audio version because the book contains a map and family tree that I found very helpful to reference as I read. Don't read reviews or you'll encounter spoilers. Just read the book!

Total teeny bopper of a book, but I still thought it was great- and nice to have an ‘easy read‘ for book club every once in a while!

I read this book in one day because I could not put it down! I really enjoyed the style of writing, especially the way E. Lockhart described strong emotion. I have taken a few days to process the end, and while it isn‘t my favourite, I‘m calling “We Were Liars” a win because I was intrigued and engaged the whole way through.

7ish/10 Decent read. First half of the book was vaguely interesting, borderline banal and trite. Second half a lot more seemed to happen rather quickly and the end of the book arrived with an unexpected impact. Would possibly read again

I loved the writing style for this YA book. We Were Liars is a solid read, and there is true character and plot development.

Summers for these four friends are always joyful until one summer something tragic happens and things will NEVER be the same. But what exactly went wrong...? Honestly I saw the twist coming a mile away - but I still recommend!!

(Note : this is my personal photo from last summer 😊)

In this book the protagonist begins a giveaway project, where she gives away one item each day. Her reason for doing it is rather sad, but it did inspire me to do something similar, new year and all 🤷🏽‍♀️😅
Hopefully I can keep it up!

LMJenkins I read this book, but don‘t remember anything about giveaways? Maybe I need to re-read! 6mo
haanim @LMJenkins I can‘t jog your memory without dropping spoilers 😂 it wasn‘t a major plot point though, just one of the things she did, I guess as a coping mechanism. 6mo

I‘m rating this a pick because I was engaged and happy to keep reading throughout. BUT the ending was a shock to me. I‘m still not sure how I feel about it, honestly. This is a book I‘m going to be thinking about for a long time, trying to process it all. Wow. ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5.

Next audiobook. I‘m not sure how I feel about that ending in We the Liars. I will say that it turned the story into something I didn‘t think it would be. I‘m looking forward to this next one. I researched a little bit about Jon Ronson for my psychology class in college.

I saw this on Libby, so I decided to give the audiobook a try. I‘m about halfway through, but honestly, it‘s pretty boring. I was expecting a mystery of some sort. Not sure why. Also, I don‘t really like the narrator‘s voice for males.

BookishMarginalia I read the print book and loved it. 6mo

I tried. I gave it about 60 pages. I just couldn‘t finish it. I didn‘t like the main character, and as she was the narrator, I couldn‘t get through the whole thing. I rarely give up on books and tried so hard! I guess it‘s not for everyone. People seem to be on opposite sides of the spectrum for this one. I‘m on the least popular end 😬

I didn‘t like any of the characters, and didn‘t feel badly for them. (Possible, though vague, I think) spoiler [They did it to themselves! Stupid teenagers!] I feel badly for the dogs, though. The story itself was good, and it‘s one where, after the twist, it is tempting to start over again to see if you can pick out any of the clues. I listened to the audio, and it was fine
