My Review:

 

OH. MY. GOODNESS. 

I keep telling people that I’m already wondering if this will already be my favorite book that I will read this year. 

I saw some other review that said that they didn’t like the choppy writing style. For me- that is what I found most interesting. It gave me a hint, of sorts, that something huge and abrupt was going to happen. I never would have guessed what was going to happen. Just know that We Were Liars is more than a story about a bunch of rich kids spending summers on an island. Random House is genius for promoting the book in a way that does not go too far into the plot. This way, the reader goes in blind and has no idea what to expect. I only knew that something had to be happening the way that the plot and story kept jumping around to different summers. I had to keep reading because I needed to know.

When I finally reached the book’s climax, I just stared at the page for a few minutes trying to process what had happened. In fact, I finished it days ago and I’m still trying to process it. 

Do yourself a favor and get We Were LIars when it releases in May!
