My Review

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.

What is with me and choosing boring psychological thriller books?! I can’t consider this a psychological thriller book too dull to hold that title. PS. If I was listening to this book on Audible I would’ve returned it already but nope it was a physical copy that I bought so I had to read it or my money would’ve gone to waste. Also, I kind of guessed the ending halfway through.

We Were Liars talks about a family dynamic. Cousins and the love interest Gat. This book talks about their summers and how after a terrific accident everything changes. After 2 years Cady returns to the island and meets with the Liars her cousins and Gat. Something does not add up why are they lying about the most simple things.
