We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

We Were Liars - E. Lockhart

Oh my god. This. Book. Is. amazing.  I’m still not over it.


The best way to read this book is to not know much about it. I started reading it knowing things about it but I will not spoil it for you as some people did to me.


This book starts off with a map of the family’s island and the Sinclair family tree which helped me understand who lived where and who each character lived with.


This book kept me guessing. I kept coming up with different theories about what was going on. Some theories going pretty out there.


Cadence and here cousins, Johnny and Mirren and step-cousin, Gat, were all called ‘The Liars’. This was a huge plot hole. I don’t understand why the parents, grandparents and the younger cousins called them the Liars. I understand them calling that between themselves but anyway. The younger cousins were called the littlies and didn’t really talk to the older cousins as much because the older cousins kind of distant themselves away from everyone and did their own thing. The Aunts were close at the beginning but after the grandmother passed away they fought over who was having what whilst the grandfather watched on enjoying them arguing.


In parts of the book there were these made up fairy tales. They were a cool addition to the book and I have never read a book with that in it.


The only thing wrong with this book is it isn't longer or has a sequel. I can’t really say much more about it without spoiling it so this was one of the best book I have ever read and is definitely one of my favourites if you are looking for a contemporary, mystery, young adult, or romance novel this is definitely the one, it will leave you with all the feels you can think of.
