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 long I went into We Were Liars one cocky son of a biscuit eater, feeling above it all right from page one I

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 time, but due to a lot of the hype, I kept putting it off Plus, I m one of those people who usually can easily figure out a plot twist and I didn t want to dive into something where a lot of people already mentioned figuring it out.But one thing did nag me a little in the back of my mind was that my Bookish Twin, Blythe from Finding Bliss in Books, LOVED it I highly value her opinion when it comes to books, because we almost always agree So when I happened to get my hands on the audiobook, I thought, What the hell I was supposed to read and review this anyway, right Let me tell you WHOA First off, I just wanna say that I don t know how the print compares to the audio and that it s possible I loved the bookthan others because of the excellent job of the narrator I can see how the fragmented sentences could be a pain to read, but this might be one of those cases where it sounds better out loud That being said, I if you haven t read this book, possibly check out the audio version first Anyway, I was feeling very blas about the first half It felt like a really random story about a rich, white girl and her white girl problems, crying her white girl tears and I felt myself unsure about what the point of it all was.And maybe that makes me sound extremely heartless, but I couldn t relate to the main character no, I m not even going to tell you her name because I want you to go in blind But somewhere along the lines, I started to become intrigued with the story because it became this strange, wild thing that I couldn t piece together.Lockhart uses a very odd narration with fragmented sentences and strange descriptions, but I thought it was beautiful and unique It added a very creepy layer on top the the existing oddness It makes you question the main character, her account of the incident and the entire book She s not very reliable and has the habit to cut off mid sentence I m not sure if that was used as a way to distract the reader or if it was to used to make us question her sanity Maybe a little bit of both Either way, it worked on me.As things started to heat up and I reached the cusp of the climax, the narrator s voice increased in intensity She began talking faster, became very emotional, then suddenly on the verge of tears And I started thinking to myself, OH GOD NO WHAT IS HAPPENING.And then IT was revealed and I was all, WHAT IS THIS LIFE I REJECT EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS ENDING NOOOOOOO So, naturally, I had a good cry and needed someone to hold me.By the end, I was all know this review might not be the most helpful in the world, but it s true what everyone says about We Were Liars You should absolutely go in blind, with no expectations and let this book take your feels as it sees fit If you are a fan of psychological thrillers like Stephanie Kuehn s Charm and Strange or Complicit , than this one may be up your alley I ll be here to hold you when you re finish.ARC was provided by the publisher via YA Books Central.More reviews and other fantastical things at Cuddlebugery 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.so 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 so, just like Little Bee,

their homes in the outer boroughs and all the lessons this young girl learns along the way from her red panda guide about life and humanity and art history and, ultimately, herself because i would read that book.instead, i am just going to say that it is perhaps unwise to market a book in this way true, the only reason i read it myself was because i came across it when making YA list for work, and i was all SECRETS I LOVE SECRETS I WANT TO KNOW THE SECRETS it s a very effective way of drumming up interest around a book.but the problem is, when you are prepared for a big twist, it is very easy to guess the big twist, which i did very early on if you think you are just reading a book about some rich family and a girl with a faulty memory and a mysterious summer, with no tantalizingly bossy instructions about keeping the book s secrets, you might besurprised when the reveal is revealed but when such a big deal is made of SHHHHHHH, and you know you are expecting something unexpected, you will probably find it, and so reading the book just becomes an exercise in waiting for the character to figure it out which is fine, but less effective in terms of shock value.i liked it anyway, but i think it would have beenfun to gasp in genuine surprise at the path it took so forget i said anything, forget what the synopsis tells you to do, and just read it like you would any other book.this should help you forget everything you have ever known to my blog 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 thi This is the kind of

seriously pissed but will try to keep it cool.I didn t getthe purpose of this book.Why were they calledLiars anyway Okaythey lied but who doesn t Why are they supposed tobe so special Becausesome of them are rich So what Many people are as well and it doesn t make theminteresting special Did it annoy you How I just wrote what I wrote If it did, this is not the book for you It s like the author wanted to make this story phenomenal and so damn poignant and thought that by adding some metaphorical sentences, a different writing style and a heavy recycled subject she would succeed But she didn t At least, not for me I personally thought it felt very pretentious and TOO MUCH The pacing is uneven and the story very repetitive The characters, except maybe for Cady, the MC, are one dimensional and I couldn t connect with any one of them.Again with the subject, is it mainly aboutrich wants to date poor guy aka love of her life but can t because family So confusing but I guess that s it since THAT started a lot of stuff The love story, by the way, is so so so dull This is all because of the hype Oh, the hype was there It.IS.There But we all know hype lies and loves doing it This is not the type of book I usually read because it feels, just by reading the synopsis really couldn t this book have at least a normal synopsis too sad dark eerie for me but, HEY, we all need to step out of our comfort zone from time to time PLUS, John Green praised this book He Thrilling, beautiful, and blisteringly smart, We Were Liars is utterly unforgettable.John Green, 1 New York Times bestselling author of The Fault in Our Stars praised this book And, since I finished reading The Fault in Our Stars not so long ago and loved it, I thought I d trust Green s judgement Except, it was boring Boring Boring Boring The only parts I felt myself enjoying reading are the little stories with the king and his 3 daughters I really don t recommend this book It s a waste of time because it s confusing as hell and doesn t even have a nice normally written ending.I wish I could burn it We were warm and shivering,and young and ancient,and alive When I began to read this book I went in completely blind and had absolutely no clue what it was about The blurb on the back didn t tell me anything about the plot and everything I knew was that We Were Liars had apparently won the YA Goodreads Choice Award in 2014 So yeah, I just decided to read it and hoped it would be good and looking at it in retrospective this actually was the best decision I could have made P Because let sWe were warm and

plot and everything I knew was that We Were Liars had apparently won the YA Goodreads Choice Award in 2014 So yeah, I just decided to read it and hoped it would be good and looking at it in retrospective this actually was the best decision I could have made P Because let s face it, this book will mess with your head big time The Liars will make you wonder, they ll make you question what happened in summer 15 and you ll not only become curious but you ll also feel a need to read on XDSilence is a protective coating over pain Of course there are plenty of hints, but will you be able to figure them out or will you be in the dark until the end I guess by now you already realised that this isn t one of my typical reviews and yes, you re right I won t write anything about the plot Sorry No, I think I m not lolA brute beneath a pleasant surface, betraying his kindness in letting me come to his sheltered island every year I ve betrayed him by seducing his Catherine, his Cadence And my penance is to become the monster he always saw in meThis is a book you ll have to experience for yourself And I want you all to scream WHAT THE FREAKING HELL when you finally reach the ending Haha And before you ask, yes I screamed it loud and clear XD This story is a mindfuck and even my usually very observant mind wasn t ready for the finale PSo all I m going to do is to give you a little character description The rest you ll have to figure out on your own XD Meet the Liars MirrenShe is sugar She is curiosity and rain Be a little kinder than you have to JohnnyHe is bounce He is effort and snark Never eat anything bigger than your ass GatDo not accept an evil you can change His nose was dramatic, his mouth sweet Skin deep borwn, hair black and waving Body wired with energy Gat seemed spring loaded Like he was searching for something He was contemplation and enthusiasm Ambition and strong coffee I could have looked at him forever CadyAlways do what you are afraid to do, I say.These days she is a gnarled crone, touching the raw flesh of my brain with her cruel fingernails She pokes my exposed nerves, exploring whether she ll take up residence in my skull If she gets in, I m confined to my bedroom for a day or maybe two Are you curious and intrigued already If yes, I hope you ll enjoy the book as much as I did It was a really nice and fast read and it definitely exceeded my expectations No Truth be told, it completely messed with my mind But we all love deliberate confusion, don t we PI suffer migraines I do not suffer fools.I like a twist of meaning
