Waiting on Wednesday: We Were Liars

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart
Pub. Date: May 13, 2014


Goodreads says, "A beautiful and distinguished family. A private island. A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy. A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive. A revolution. An accident. A secret. Lies upon lies. True love. The truth. We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from National Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart. Read it.  And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE."
The early reviews for this book have been crazy good, so I can't wait to get my hands on a copy. I love the fact that it's a mystery/suspense/thriller kind of story---the YA genre needs more of this!  What do you guys think?

  2. Ah, I had a very different reaction to this book. Actually posted my review of it yesterday. Didn't at all live up to the hype for me, but then again, it also ticked some readerly pet peeves of mine, so there was a good chance I was never going to LOVE it. I don't give any major spoilers in my review, so it's safe to read unless you want to know absolutely NOTHING about the book before starting it.

  3. The synopsis for this book is perfect I think. It gives us just enough information to have an idea of what we're getting into, but withholds even more to have us cursing the release date for being so far away. Can't wait to get my hands on this Christina!
