Question of the Week: Do you like summer? What are your favourite things to do during summer?

🤍 'We Were Liars' is the most critically acclaimed YA novel that I've read and if you know me, you know that i love everything critically acclaimed.

🌿 At it's core, the book is about the wealthy, seemingly perfect Sinclair family who spend every summer together on their private island. In the family, four of the older cousins have a group and they are dubbed to be the "Liars". Well, they're not all cousins. Cadence (the protagonist), johnny and mirren are cousins and the fourth liar, Gat, is a friend of johnny's. The Liars spend summer together every year. Every summer has its own story.

☕ During Cadence's 15th summer, something happened that changed her world forever, and it's something that you wouldn't expect. She loses most of her memories and begins to suffer from migraines. The rest is a mystery that is slowly uncovered as you flip the pages.

🕊️ The book mainly revolves around the theme of self-acceptance, family morals, and the consequences of your choices. The story is packed with emotional drama and family conflicts that are far from cliché but will still make you nostalgic.

📚 If you need a good cry, 'We Were Liars' is your go-to book. I don't like to admit it but there were moments where i had to literally put the book down and just sob. Please read this one if you like teen fiction & good writing. Rating: 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart

Read more
Okay, so, we loved this book so much that we decided to follow its format and work our usual routine backwards to replicate the reverse chronology of the book. We also had an unexpected 45 minute delay before recording, so we are way more keyed up than usual, and goofiness ensues. Please hang in there (especially if your name is Energy Lockhart).

Molly suggests all of E. Lockhart's other books.

Amy suggests Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk.

Kim suggests The Talented Mr. Ripley by Patricia Highsmith (Nathan suggests the film), Here Lies Daniel Tate by Cristin Terril, and Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson.

Is It Teen Enough alum Katie (via Goodreads) suggests the movie Memento.

Nathan suggests the films Six Degrees of Separation and The Last Seduction, and the book Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis.
