'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

My Christmas Gift Guide!!

Hi Guys,

Welcome to the first of my Christmas posts! I'm already ridiculously excited and there is still 29 days to go! Today I'm going to be giving my gift suggestions for anyone who needs help with their gift giving. Obviously, Christmas isn't all about the presents but it's always nice to give someone a gift that you know they will love! That was a super long intro so lets get into the actual post!

£5 or less...

1) Sleek Mini Matte Me 4 set: I have this on my list because this set looks amazing! For anyone who doesn't know, liquid lipsticks are meant to be the next 'thing' (Thanks to Kylie Jenner) so these are perfect for the makeup lover in your life! The only thing I will say is that they have been sold out online and are impossible to find in store. Let's just hope that they get restocked soon!

2)Impulse Body Spray Mini Cracker Gift Set- Rock and Love, Why Not and Very Pink are all included in this adorable set. The best part about it is that it is cu…

What you Need For Back to School...

It's already this time of year again; obviously I'm thrilled. Of course this is the best part of summer with the perpetual worrying about getting the 'wrong' thing and all of the consideration you have to put into making sure your bag won't clash with your face. I mean, maybe that's not what you're thinking, but now you are, right? Is your backpack the wrong colour for you? I can't confirm it isn't, but I can guarantee that these items are all cute as hell.

Bags:
VANS Snoopy Backpack- Currently, this back pack is sat in my wardrobe, waiting for the sixth of September. I saw it when I was in Cornwall and fell in love with it so ordered it as soon as I got home. My bag was VANS last year and was so well made (there's even a secret pocket)! This one is a dark navy with little drawings of skateboarding Snoopy all around. I've loved Snoopy since I was little and this is just a nice homage to him!
Michael Kors Over the Shoulder- I have never been mor…
