I read this in book format.
We Were Liars is a book I will never forget. I was completely captivated by this and I will always remember that feeling when I closed the final page. I adore this cover. The whole reason I picked it up was because of it. It’s what attracted me to this story.
Cadence is a Sinclair. She spends Summers on her family’s private island and is part of a friendship group. They call themselves the Liars. There was an accident. A huge secret. Friendships are destroyed and hearts are broken.
I don’t want to give too much away with describing this book. I am on the fence about how I felt. I am a sucker for a twist and let me tell you, this one was not expected. The book is hauntingly beautiful and you will not rest until you’ve come to the end of it. And then you’ll sit, speechless and breathless.
I read this story whilst on holiday (vacation for you Americans!) and I was completely wrapped up in the We Were Liars bubble. I completed it on the plane home and I remember cursing, gasping, holding my brow with the stress of the book.
It’s truly something.
Please, give it a try and let me know what you thought, or, if you have read it, let me know so we can discuss it!
I give this book a 3.5 out of 5 stars.
