Waiting On…WE WERE LIARS by E. Lockhart

Posted 27 November, 2013 | Mary @ TheBookSwarm | | 12 Comments

Twitter is abuzz with praise for this book so I figured I’d better jump on the wagon (I’m all about the wagon, when it’s a good one. And this one seems to be a good one.). It definitely sounds intriguing what with all the suspense and such (Question: is it too sophisticated for me? Perhaps. I’m a bit lowbrow. But I’ll give it a go anyway.).

The cover is simple…but it doesn’t do a whole lot for me. I do like the title font treatment, though. And how the author’s name is in lower case (it was like that on her other books, which I think is cool. All e.e. cummings and such.).

YA Contemporary
240 pages, hardcover
Expected publication: May 13, 2014
Publisher: Delacorte Press


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.

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

  1. This does sound intriguing! I haven’t heard of this one but I’m thinking I should read it so I can find out what happens! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. Hehe. I’m lowbrow too Mary, so I’m not sure about this one. I tend to shy away from anything resembling a classic or something of utter literary brilliance. I’d much rather have a sexy alpha male keeping me flipping the pages:) I’ll be curious to see what you think of this when it comes out Mary!

  3. I’m totally a lowbrow, too, Mary but this does sound really good! Great choice, although, I may wait to see what you think before picking it up. 🙂
