I've been procrastinating about writing my review for this book for over a month. Honestly, I'm still not sure what I'm going to say -- so here goes nothing.
I read E. Lockhart's Ruby Oliver series last year and LOVED them. We Were Liars is NOTHING like those books. In fact, I honestly wouldn't even know they were written by the same author except, well, they are.
I was intrigued about this book after Jaime @ The Perpetual Page-Turner gushed about her love for the story. Then, when my review request was approved, I immediately dove in, excited for a five-star read. I was immediately intrigued by the letter from the publisher, which basically asks all ARC readers to not spoil the story for others and not say much about what the book is about.
I won't spoil anything and I won't say anything about the storyline of the book. Let me just say that this is a weird little book with a storyline that was really not what I was expecting. Perhaps I was expecting a storyline that was a little more Ruby Oliver-esque, and that's why I was a bit disappointed. Or perhaps I expected to be blown away, and I just wasn't.
I will leave on this note: this is a book that most readers will probably love or hate and there probably won't be too many people who are left sitting on the fence, as I am. A month later, I'm still thinking that I liked it -- I think I liked it. But it was weird ... just a weird, odd little book.
Note: I received an e-galley of this book from Netgalley. The fact
that I received this book for review did not influence my opinion of
this book in any way.
