'We Were Liars'- E.Lockhart: Book Review!

Hi Guys,

Today I am going to be doing my 4th 'Zoella Book Club' Review! I am half way through all of the books: it is unbelievable! A lot of these reviews have been pre-written because I am such a fast reader so this post will be going up a month and a half from now; it feels so weird! (I'm just looking over this before it goes up and it still feels strange! I don't even remember what I've written!!)Before I get too dazzled, let's get on with the post!


As always, I will keep spoilers to a minimum!


'We Were Liars' focuses on Cadence Sinclair, a privileged all-American girl, who is spending the summer at her Granddad's private island. This one sentence pretty much sums up Cady! Also, she has a really tight bond with 'The Liars'  who are her cousins Johnny, Mirren and Gat. 

Johnny, Mirren and Cadence are all cousins who are carrying the Sinclair legacy; Gat is a friend of Johnny's who begins to fall in love with Cady. Their bonds are broken after Cadence's accident takes her away from the island for a summer. 

I thought that the characters were likeable and the way they were introduced was really great. I think having Cady's narrative (as well as contributing to the authenticity of the plot) made your perspective of  'The Liars' biased but in a good way. If you hadn't had the story from the narrative of a 'Liar' then it would have just been the life of  a spoiled rich girl!

In terms of plot, it was amazing! I loved the pace and there seemed to be a twist every page... up until the end. There is a huge shock which will make you go right back to the start to see how you missed it! My mum and my friend both guessed it and I got half way, but I promise you: you'll be surprised!

I have zero criticisms for this book. It was like nothing I've read before and I'm sure that the story will stay with me. I 100% recommend 'We Were Liars'!

I hope you enjoyed this post. If you want to catch up with the ones that you've missed check out the page that I have up. It has links to the rest of my reviews. Don't forget to add me to your circles on Google + so I can get 100 followers by September 1st!

Thanks for Reading

November's Essay...

I haven't been feeling very well this month. I took my first day of school- in a few years- on Monday because of how bad it was. Physically, I had a cold. No, I'm not one of those people! (Side note...) It always irritates me when people have a bit of a sniffly nose and then take two weeks off from school. There's just no need! My moto is: have a bit of lemsip and get over it. I'll drag myself into school practically unconscious with a bus stuck in my side and still plaster a smile onto my face. This month, however, I finally admitted there was something wrong.

A day was spent under a blanket with Gossip Girl on. In the end I put 'After Laughter' on and woke up two hours later, confused, wondering why the music had stopped. Even though I felt awful the next day (I always get massive colds!), I went back into school. That day at home did me good though because it was nice to spend some time resting and not being stressed. That's something that I don't do …

A Zillenial on the Eighties...

Now, let's throw it back to the glorious year of 2004. Shrek 2 was hitting our screens, Jeremy Clarckson was hitting Piers Morgan in the face and Maria Julia Mantilla was being crowned 'Miss World' over in China. I, a bit closer to home, was enjoying the early years of life. However, across the sea 'Bowling for Soup' were releasing '1985': a bop that I would only come to appreciate about twelve years later. The song contains references to many pop-culture focal points that I have never understood... until now! It's time for me to explore the eighties! 

First off is 'Whitesnake'. For the past few years, I've thought that 'Whitesnake' was one person (a rapper or something? I don't know!) but it turns out that they're a band! The were a British hard rock band who rose to fame in the 80s, originally formed in 1977. Another band that I believed to be a single person was 'Blondie'. My friend recently went to see them, althou…
