Read it.

And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.

My Thoughts:
I received my copy of We Were Liars in a book exchange, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Normally, I check out reviews and read the synopsis of a book before I pick up a copy. But when I got this one in the mail…I was definitely intrigued. The story pulled me in fairly quickly, and it became one of those books that I just had to know the ending of. There were a few parts that felt a little juvenile to me, but the story is told from the point-of-view of a teenager, so that works with the story. If you are a fan of a good twist ending, then this is a book you should read. I’ll be honest, I did NOT see the ending coming. It was totally unexpected for me.

    The only books I can’t put down lately are suspense kinds like this- “the memory box,” “after anna” are 2 really good suspense books you can’t put down like this one sounds. And I struggle with getting through any book that bores me in the slightest bit! Lol *
