'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

A Collection of Failures Through February...

I don't really know if what a clumsy and awkward person I am has been documented enough. Through inference, I feel like it's been made evident. I've mentioned a few of the embarrassing little moments that I've had throughout my monthly's but you are wrong if you think that's it. My life is not just a collection of one off encounters with shame: it's basically a book. A solid 75% of February had been comprised of making a fool of myself, overall. So, here I am, admitting to that fact, and hoping that these stories will make you feel a little bit better about yourself...

The Onion Incident- Okay, I feel like this dramatic title has really pulled you in! Our story begins on a Thursday morning, during half term. I was going to go out to print some photos for my scrap book but my mum asked if I'd go and get her two carrots, an onion and a bag of potatoes. A strangely specific list- I know- but I just accepted it and went off on my journey. I printed my photos…

Why I Hate Rom Coms...

Contrary to what the title would have you believe, romance is my favourite genre of film. I'd say that the first real rom com I watched was 'Pretty Woman' and my obsession had grown since then. However, no matter have much I adore them, I have some issues with the category. Pretty much everyone romance film includes one of these tropes; they wouldn't be a trope if they didn't!

First of all is rain. I have no problem with the weather: light drizzle is actually my favourite weather (I find it really therapeutic to see it bouncing off of an umbrella, okay?!?) but the rain you get in rom coms is next level. It's thunderstorm level of soak, yet nobody seems to have seen the forecast! Surely if that much rain was predicted, one of these people would be wearing a raincoat? It actually doesn't seem to have any kind of effect on the characters, so their lack of preparation isn't an issue. If I'm getting rained on I'm shivery, have stringy curls all over m…
