Book Review: We Were Liars

Anyone out there looking for a good novel to read? Well look no further! I recently picked up E. Lockhart’s We Were Liars from the library and decided to give it a try. A friend of mine back at school had recommended it to me and I am always ready to dive into a new book.

Let me start by saying that this book isn’t very long and it is an easy read. By easy read- I don’t mean that it is necessarily easy to understand- just that the word choice is simple. The book is very metaphorical and filled with anecdotes. It also does not follow the story in chronological order- it jumps around a lot.

The book focuses on several themes such as family morals and issues of wealth and class status. The story centers on a teenage girl named Cadence who comes from a wealthy family that spends their summers on their own private island. Cadence in present day is experiencing memory loss and throughout the book is trying to remember what happened during a past summer that she seems to have forgotten.

If you are in the mood for a twisty, deep and perplexing read (similar to Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn if any of you have read the book or seen the movie) than this is definitely the book for you.

I don’t want to give anything away but don’t judge this book until you make it to the end. It will all become worth it. 

Worry less and smile more.
