Book Review: The Lying Game by Ruth Ware

Book Rating: 3/5 Book Review: I really wanted to love The Lying Game. I’ve heard a lot of hype around it, and I had built it up to something that it just didn’t quite meet. It was a slow psychological thriller about a group of friends who experienced something horrible when they were young. We…

Book Review: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

Book Rating 4/5 Book Review: What if we could stop being different colors, different backgrounds, and just be in love? The book We Were Liars follows a group of friends who visit Beechwood Island every summer. Three of them are related (Johnny, Mirren, Cadence) and one is portrayed as just lucky to be involved (Gat).

Book Review: The Kommandant’s Girl

I just started reading this book on Friday, and despite being busy and not having much time, I stayed up late (which I never, ever do), came home early instead of going out with friends (also a rare occurance), and read all day today instead of watching TV like my normal Sunday activity. Needless to…
