  1. Once upon a time there were three bears who lived in a wee house in the woods.Once upon a time there were three billy goats who lived near a bridge.Once upon a time there were three soldiers, tramping together down the roads after the war.Once upon a time there were three little pigs.Once upon a time there were three brothers.No, this is it This is the variation I want.It was a better coming of age than Catcher in the Rye, but I also thought Twilight was a better coming of age than Catcher in th [...]

  2. This is the kind of book that, when I finish reading it, I m like FINALLY and then throw the book out of the window in this case not applicable because of digital copy so I m doing it through a gif But really, what a weird story and an uncomfortable and pretentious atmosphere this We Were Liars book has It wasn t long, thank God, but damn it was painful to read This is my 3rd negative review read this week and I m seriously pissed but will try to keep it cool.I didn t getthe purpose of this book [...]

  3. This was, without a doubt, one of the most powerful and well crafted books I have read in a really long time Elements that made this book outstanding 1 It started with a map and a family tree Talk about setting yourself up for success 2 The personification of emotion This might not make sense unless you ve read the book, but wow it was powerful.3 The use of fairy tales from the main character to describe situations.4 The sense of complete mystery and suspicion I was always questioning everything [...]

  4. sobbing sobbing sobbing so much love for this book, and its perfect, perfect ending i can t even capitalize right now i don t even want to capitalize right now in fetal positionb my souuuuul.

  5. It s true what they re saying you re better off if I tell you nothing about this book.So I will just say two things.1 It is worth reading Even though I only gave it 3 stars.2 I gave it 3 stars because of the writing style, which irritated the hell out of me The fact that it got 3 stars after annoying me so much will hopefully give you some indication of how much I liked the idea.It s a very clever book and an incredibly sophisticated piece of YA BUT an execution that was not to my tastes The wri [...]

  6. It s been awhile since I have so totally hated a book.I m surprised at how varied the feelings on here about this book areme of my friends hated it.Some of them liked loved it.I still love them.Let s get to why I hated this so very frigging much.The main character is a twitbut then the whole family is Welcome to the beautiful Sinclair family.No one is a criminal.No one is an addict.No one is a failure.The Sinclairs are athletic, tall and handsome That s actually the good part on her family In so [...]

  7. I went into We Were Liars one cocky son of a biscuit eater, feeling above it all right from page one I d seen this book talked about so heavily by other bloggers and how some never saw the twist coming or how others totally saw that twist coming All the while, I was sitting on the sidelines with my shades on, posted up with my arms folded, saying, Yeah, yeah, yeah Hot potato That s not to say I didn t want to read this book, because I did I even had an ARC sitting on my shelf for the longest tim [...]

  8. so, just like Little Bee, this book begs you NOOO, DON T TELL ITS SEEEEKRITS and if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE part of me is tempted to write this whole long review about how this book is a magical adventure focusing on a young girl in manhattan during the blackout of 2003, when all the red pandas living in the sewers came out to play, carrying tiny flashlights and shepherding people from manhattan to their homes in the outer boroughs and all the lessons this young girl learns along t [...]

  9. 5 Stars There s not even a Scrabble word for how I m feeling right now This story left me defeated, but its tragedy was paired equally with an unconventional beauty It gripped me instantly to the point where I couldn t stop thinking about its mystery Its intrigue Its quiet calamity The suspense is painted on rather thickly, which is not to say that readers will not form an accurate theory early on But the journey remains worth it whether you ve Sherlock Holmes d this one or not The plot introduc [...]

  10. well this was all kinds of pointlessand also depressing ugh the writing is so manneredit is an affectationa studied display of real or pretended feelinge whole book lacks affect it lacks the real emotionthat it so desperately tries to conveyin its own affect less waye writer has talentsurebut here it is squandered.I like the premise, it s enticing who doesn t want to read about the fragile cloistered lives of insular rich white peoplewho summer on their own private island makes us not rich peopl [...]

  13. I went into We Were Liars blind, for the most part It had been sitting on my Audible shelf for so long that I had long since forgotten what it was supposed to be about Sometimes, I get it in my head that a book is going to be about something, when it absolutely has nothing to do with it God only knows where I get these ideas, but I do As a result, I often find myself being surprised by the content of the stories I read without re reading the blurbs This was one of those times Note to other reade [...]

  14. First,I predict the ending after 25% of the novel.d Yes,I was rightIt was a bit tedious after that, I mean I know everythingBUTBy the final 25 pages I cried like a babyIt s shameful crying, uncontrollable, unexpectedthough the whole thing wasExpected.Do you think I lie NoThey WereNot me 4 4 4 4 , 4 4 4 4 225 , , , , , , , , , , , , 3 3 3 3 3 10% Sin Clear Sinclair , , , , , , , Be a little kinder than you have to Always do what you re afraid to do Never eat anything bigger than your ass Do no [...]

  15. A really unfortunate novel by the author of the much better The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau Banks A completely unconvincing twist in the last twenty pages resolves the mystery in a way that is both improbably gruesome and also lightly dismissed by the author The real moral questions raised by the subject of the book, including racism, land ownership, inheritance, materialism, greed, and manipulation, are acted out in flat, white hat black hat morality plays by stock characters of litt [...]

  16. We Were Liars is an incredible, heartbreaking read that really messes with your mind until the very end The writing, while not for everyone I m sure, had me mesmerized It s so different and poetic and full of carefully crafted imagery It s a writing style that s really out of the box, you ll either love it or hate it Me, I was thoroughly compelled The plot itself is one you can t talk about or read about as you re bound to find out spoilers It s the kind of story where the story itself is a spoi [...]

  17. WARNING This book is a liar and it will cause you to cry for the next three hours, it crushes souls and it severely destroy hearts Proceed with caution.I spent the whole time sobbing trying to catch my breath then sobbing again.We Were Liars scarred me and Im broken way beyond repair And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.You can listen to my fanmix of We Were Liars on 8tracks.

  18. I m pretty disappointed in this one To me, it was very predictable and underwhelming However, I did really like atmosphere of the story, the characters, and the writing Listening to it as an audiobook definitely enhanced the experience.

  19. Eh This was not the book for me, which I was disappointed to discover after two book friends and an admired blogger all raved about this one If I had expected less, I probably would have enjoyed it , but as it stands, it ticked a few boxes for my various readerly pet peeves 1 A first person narrator2 An unreliable narrator This is not a spoiler Read the title And the narrator has amnesia 3 The narrator has amnesia.4 In the last 30 pages or so, the narrator author make a big reveal that negates s [...]

  20. ____________________________________________ Be a little kinder than you have to ____________________________________________Okay so where to begin.I liked this book,you can see it by my rating,but I don t feel it ended right.I am not saying it was a bad ending,not at all,I enjoyed it,but there was no justice.The next part of the review will contain spoilers because I want to discuss with you some part of this book.Okay so let s begin ____________________________________________ Do not accept an [...]

  21. What if we could stop being different colors, different backgrounds, and just be in love I hard quite a hard time rating this book.Things I LovedThe title, the unreliable narrator, the wonderful writing style, the air of mystery, the unexpected twists and turns, the priviliged wealthy private island setting, the fairytales.Things I Did Not LoveThe many names and characters Ugh, it took me a while to figure out who was who inspite of the family tree The self centered protagonist, the shallow side [...]

  22. I don t cry a lot but boy this had me sobbingI don t even know how to describe the feelings this story left me with Just read it and you ll understand

  23. Warning to everyone who reads We Were Liars Be prepared to scrape your chin off the floor With a forklift Yes, it really is that amazing.
