We Were Liars is a book that had briefly been on my radar a few years ago, but it never held much interest to me. There were reviews likening it to Pretty Little Liars, which is a far too melodramatic-teenage-drama for me. Luckily for me, I’m an impulse book buyer and bought a copy on whim the other day. I still wasn’t convinced that I would enjoy it, but I figured I should see what the hype was about. This is one time where my impulsiveness really paid off: We Were Liars turned out to be one of the best books I’ve read this year.
