Review: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart


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.

Quite an empty synopsis, I know, but I really feel like it's best if you go into this book knowing very little about what it's about. There was a ridiculous amount of hype surrounding We Were Liars but as I picked it up, I realised that I knew next to nothing about the plot. All I knew was that there's a twist and it's well-loved. For that reason, I'm going to be super vague in my review of We Were Liars by E. Lockhart.

First things first (I'm the realest...), this book is unlike anything I've ever read. It's a slow-burner and the first half isn't anything special but, for some weird reason, I was enthralled and couldn't put it down. Although it was pretty ordinary to start with, there was a kinda promise and I could just tell that it was all leading up to something. I kept reading and finished the full book in one sitting. As I put it down, I was literally trembling and, even now, I don't know why. A few weeks have passed and I still don't know exactly what I think of We Were Liars. It's so weird but it's only when it's all over that you realise how much you cared about the characters. It really is unlike anything I've ever read. 

That's all I'm going to say about this book because I really don't want to ruin it for anyone who hasn't read it yet. If you have read it, though, and want someone to fangirl with then I am very much available. Just DM me on twitter or something and we can ramble about it together.  


Have you read We Were Liars?
Lots of love, Cat
