16143347 We Were Liars

Author: e. lockhart   
Publisher: Random House
Release Date: May 13, 2014

Synopsis from Goodreads:

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.

Why I'm Excited:

e. lockhart is the woman. The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks is one of my all time favorite books and I love the Ruby Oliver series, too. This synopsis is a bit vague, but certainly intriguing. I love a bit of mystery and suspense and it sounds like it will deliver both. I'm beyond excited for this book.

  1. This one sounds interesting. I'll be watching for it. Hope you enjoy!
    Here's my WoW!

  2. I've never heard of this author, but from the sounds of it...I should check out her books. I will have to look her up on goodreads. Thanks for sharing!!

    Here is my WoW:

  3. This author is new to me, but your description of her work has me wanting to know more about her.

    My WoW:

  4. I need to read that book (the disreputable...). I haven't had the pleasure of reading any of her work. What's wrong with me? Lol. This sounds great, Natalie.

  5. Ohh! I love the sound of this one and the cover is awesome. It looks like a summertime read--my favorite! I have to admit I have never read anything by Lockhart, but I definitely want to. Great pick!

  6. Oh boy! I can already feel the drama! I like the cover (: I haven't read anything by Lockhart yet, but I'm thinking I might need to soon haha. Awesome pick, thanks for sharing!

    Here's my WoW at Bookmunchies (:

  7. Maybe it's just me, but that synopsis just didn't draw me in. It's a suspense, so I understand the vaugeness, but I'm just thinking *meh*. I likely wouldn't pick this up if I just saw it sitting on the shelf. I would be hitting up the reviews first *patiently waits*

  8. I've not read any of her books before. I ordered this one through Random Buzzers because I just felt drawn to it. You should sign up and get a copy :-) When you read it I hope you love it!

  9. I haven't read this author, but the book sounds interesting. Hope you enjoy it! ~Pam

  10. Mhm, only read the first book in the Ruby Oliver series. Was not thaaaat happy with it. But I do agree this one sounds interesting...

  11. Wow, that synopsis sounds PHENOMENAL. I didn't know E. Lockhart had a new book coming out! Adding this to my TBR list on goodreads!

  12. I think your WoW posts are my favorite. You always feature such great contemporary books! I'm kind of freaking out right now because I totally didn't know E. Lockhart has another book coming out and I feel like I've been waiting for forever for this. Ahh!

  13. I've never read anything by the author, but this one definitely caught my attention. I think I saw The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks up on Audible, so maybe I'll check that one out, as well. Especially since you seem to adore the author. :)


Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
