I love a good recommendation and I love watching youtube videos, so when one of my favourites EssieButton did a collaboration with BooksandQuills I went crazy on my amazon account and ended up purchasing most of the book featured.
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart was one of those purchases. I will admit I didn't love this book as much as I thought I would. I think it was because of how it was actually written. I loved the plot but thought that it could of been written in a much better way but then it fits in with the troubles of the main character Cadence so I understand why its the way it is.
The story is about a family that holidays each summer on their private island, we know that something is wrong with Cadence known as Cady as she is unwell and we slowly discover throughout the book that it has something to do with an accident that happened on the island when her and her three friends were 15. I knew that something wasn't quite right throughout the story and was really happy at the end when it all came out.
Its an amazing read that keeps your turning the pages to find out everything that happens. It has everything you need in a good story as it has suspense, thrill, old money, love and hate. It shows the dark side of the bond between a family something which I particularly loved.
Definitely a good read! Don't forget to let me know of any book recommendations you might have as I do love a good book. If you have read, are reading or going to read this book let me know in the comments, or even tweet me!!
