Reviews One of Us Is Lying

  • Chelsea Humphrey
    What a marvelous, delectable read! There was something so addictive about this book; it felt at times distinctly young adult while also having moments that felt so well done it was beyond the stereotype of what a teenage thriller tends to be. It’s taken me 4 days just to collect my thoughts to the point that I can attempt writing a proper review, and I’m certain this will be one of the most talked about books in the YA genre this Spring/Summe...

    Hi hello I’m coming at you live from the bog of eternal satisfaction on this warm wednesday night in July because THIS BOOK.I finished this book with the biggest cheesiest grin on my face, I don’t even know what plane of existence that was but there were a lot of corny feelings involved (any planets I can blame that on??). It’s like I was floating on a cloud or something. I was overwhelmed with so many emotions for no reason and I guess my ...

    I'd give this 4.5 stars.If One of Us Is Lying was a television series, I would binge-watch it wholeheartedly. It's been a while since I've gotten so into a book I've devoured the majority of it in one sitting when I haven't been on a plane. This hooked me completely, and I'm surprised how much I liked it.Five students have detention one afternoon. There's Cooper, the golden boy and star baseball player trying to decide between college and the m...

    More addicting than lays potato chips! Well, I can't remember the last time I've eaten lays potato chips. Do they still make them? My 5 stars are for pure page-turning enjoyment. I LOVED "The Breakfast Club" ---(my kids watched it a half dozen times too) ---and this was The Breakfast Club on steroids! Moral of the story: All kids lie! haha!

    Content warning: Harmful representation of sexuality and mental illness.This book was such a disappointment because I was REALLY enjoying it up until the last 3rd or so. I seriously thought this would be a 4 or 5 star read. However, upon finishing, I strongly believe that this book should not have been published as is. It's ignorant and damaging.Aside from the parts that I found harmful, the writing was very trope heavy and relied on too many ste...

    I'm going to go ahead and leave this at a 4 star. I wasn't sure between 3 and 4 because it's one of those books that was driving me crazier than I am. I couldn't put the book down and wanted to smack everyone in the book! Major players:Simon BroneynNate CooperAddyThey all go to detention and one dies. Why? There are lies and evilness all around! Stupidity and sadness.

    4 to 4.5 StarsEvery time I walk into the living room my wife is watching Pretty Little Liars or Revenge or Riverdale or Veronica Mars or . . . well, you get the idea. Sometimes I watch a bit with her. As I started this book I immediately thought “this book will be perfect for her – it’s the same type of thing”!So, if you like those shows, books like those shows, books those shows are based on, etc., then this is the book for you. While no...
