I have been hearing SO many good (and intriguing) things about We Were Liars by E. Lockhart over the week! This book was officially published yesterday and I have yet to hear anyone say something bad about it. Because I haven’t read the book yet and because I don’t think I can top this description, here’s what it’s about (from its Goodreads page):
“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.
We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from National Book Award finalist and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.”
Oh man. If that last sentence doesn’t make you want to read the book, I don’t know what will. I am desperately trying to avoid spoilers before I can get my hands on this book and that day can’t come soon enough! I can’t wait to read it.
Have you read We Were Liars? Did you like it? Did you add anything new to your wishlist this week?

I read it last night. In one sitting. It was phenomenal. I’m going to review it for reviewsday Tuesday next week. I cannot stop thinking about it, literally. It’s going to haunt me.
That’s SO good to hear! I seriously can’t wait to get it – maybe even more so because I’m scared I’ll be spoiled. So far so good though! I’ll have to check out your review when it comes out 🙂
I’ll keep it spoiler free, which will be kind of difficult. But it is seriously worth the wait. You’ll love it.
Awesome! Need to get a copy ASAP.
I had mine preordered since nearly the beginning of the year. It’s definitely worth it. You’ll have to let me know if you enjoy it!
Damn, that’s some proactive pre-ordering on your part! I will let you know 🙂
I had just read her other book, Disreputable History of Frankie Landau Banks, and found the tumblr marketing campaign. They drew me in really fast.
I can’t wait for this one either. Looks so good!
The suspense is killing me! Everyone is raving about it!
I think I’m going to save it for a vacation read this summer. But it does sound great.
I know almost nothing concrete about it but the description and everyone’s reviews is making me really want to read it. I think it would be a great summer vacation read!
Loved it! One of the very few books with an unreliable narrator that I gave 5/5 stars to. E Lockhart is a magician!
My excitement for this book is actually through the roof. Must. Acquire. Book. Now. So happy to hear that you loved it too!
I’m in the same boat you’re in – I’m hoping to read it tomorrow… fingers crossed.
Ooh let me know what you thought if you do!
