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.

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas | 2021 Reads

  I enjoyed this because Thomas focuses mostly on the internal conflicts of the main character and how her decisions affect her and everybody around her and still deals with a lot of racial issues that Black (and Brown) young people have to deal with in the US, especially in poor neighbourhoods. Bri is a teen going through a difficult time. She can seem hot-headed, opinionated and, at times, selfish, but she is just trying to be herself, help those she loves and pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. I was reminded though of why I rarely read YA contemporary fiction these days: one, dramatic teens (don't get me wrong, I get where they are coming from but still makes my eyes roll) and two, intentional lack of communication between adults and kids which drives me up the wall.
