Kim Reads Books About Things

I like most books, particularly children's and YA. The fact that I am 21 does not and will never hinder this, and it shouldn't. A good book is a good book is a good book. Anyway. I'll read anything I can get my hands on if the mood suits me.

Also-read recently: We Were Liars

We Were Liars - E. Lockhart

My review from Goodreads didn't carry over, so... here we go.



I hated this book at first. It felt like Gatsby-lite, which was baffling, and I wasn't feeling all of Lockhart's storytelling choices. (As I am a gigantic fan of The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, this shocked me.) However, after many struggles and much wondering about whether or not I should finish, it clicked with me, and I really enjoyed it and started really caring about what happened.


And that, my friends, was more shocking than any twist ending. Give it a go. It's polarizing, but it's certainly unique.
