We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

"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."

It is true what they say about this book – the less you know about it, the better.

For the first time ever I won’t give you a summary of this book. I will say, however, that E. Lockhart crafted a beautiful and heart-breaking story with a very poetic and original writing style and a mystery (most) readers won’t be able to solve.

I tried my best to guess what will happen at the very end but I could not. I was truly shocked because my guesses were completely wrong. My face was a mixed between horror and disbelief when I found out.

So, this may be the shortest review in the history of book reviews but I honestly say it is better if I don’t give anything away, just for the sake of the reading experience. You only have to know that I like this book and if you see yourself as a contemporary and mystery lover, this is the book for you.

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

Reading Diary | February Books | 2018

Feb, 1st - 15:15. Finished the second book in the first volume of the Riyria Revelations and I was pleasantly surprised. I still think the world building is the weakest thing about the story because it's not greatly developed but the story is well-written and entertaining. I'm planning on continuing reading the series because now I'm intrigued enough to want to know how everything will unfold. Feb, 7th - 10:33.  I'm finally prepared to go and see the movie Call Me By Your Name because I just finished reading the novel. I enjoyed it quite a bit. It is a celebration of love and an exploration of sex and identity. It's quite explicit though so if you feel uncomfortable with that keep it in mind if you're planning on reading it. My full review of the book is HERE (I also talk a little bit about the movie).
