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.


We Were Liars sounds amazing, and unlike any YA contemporary I’ve read recently. I don’t normally gravitate toward “mysteries”, but this just sounds way too good to pass up: A mystery/suspense novel set on a private island, where a tight group of friends are the main characters, and lies and deceit abound…? I don’t know all the recipes for “good book”, but that sounds like one way to do it! And the early reviews of this have all been amazing, if you haven’t noticed. I just need this book in my life immediately.

What book are YOU anxiously awaiting today?

Link me to your WoW post and I’ll be sure to stop by! :)

  1. I’m so excited to read this one!!! I have an ARC of it and I’m curious to see how it pulls off the contemporary feel plus the mystery element. If it turns out to be anything like Dangerous Girls, I know I’ll love it!

  2. This is definitely one worth reading! I didn’t end up loving it as much as some other book bloggers did, but it’s a very solid and unique book. The style takes a little getting used to, but it really sucks you in. I hope you love it, Nikki! :D
