Hello and welcome, fellow bookworms!
For any of my followers/regular readers of my blog, I apologise for my lack of posts! I’m back with one of my favourite reads of July: One of Us is Lying by Karen M. McManus!
I purchased this book from Book Depository after reading the blurb on the site whilst browsing for new books. I initially started reading the blurb after spotting the words “recommended for fans of Gossip Girl” as I’m a big fan, although I’ve only seen the first two series!
I got a fab surprise when I opened my parcel…THE PAGE EDGES ARE RED! (see featured image of this post).
But onto the book itself…
The blurb of the book is below:
“Yale hopeful Bronwyn has never publicly broken a rule.
Sports star Cooper only knows what he’s doing in the baseball diamond.
Bad body Nate is one misstep away from a life of crime.
Prom queen Addy is holding together the cracks in her perfect life.
And outsider Simon, creator of the notorious gossip app at Bayview High, won’t ever talk about any of them again.
He dies 24 hours before he could post their deepest secrets online. Investigators conclude it’s no accident. All of them are suspects.
Everyone has secrets, right?
What really matters is how far you’ll go to protect them.”
SOUNDS GREAT, RIGHT?
It was. This book definitely lived up to my expectations and more! I had so many theories from the beginning and most of them were wrong but I figured one thing out!
I don’t want to say too much for fear of ruining the book for any who are going to read it (you all should) but there were so many twists; it really kept me guessing! It was so good that I read it in a day, around being at work!
Rating: 5 Stars
(I’ve also added to my favourites shelf on Goodreads – there are only 3 other books on there, so I think that says a lot)
I hope you’ve enjoyed this review enough to read the book…trust me, it’s worth a read!
Until my next post.
