Book Review: We Were Liars by E. Lockhart

“We are Sinclairs. Beautiful. Privileged. Damaged. Liar. We live, least in the summertime, on a private island off the coast of Massachusetts. Perhaps that is all you need to know.”
___________

Cadence Sinclair-Eastman, known as Cady, has grown up in a wealthy, prestigious family. Every summer they all head out to a private island to vacation.  Cady’s cousins plus a family acquaintance are her companions each summer.  She looks forward to spending the summer with them until one summer when something goes wrong.  All she can remember about that summer is that she was in some sort of accident that caused her to lose her memory. She can’t understand why her mother won’t let her return to the island the next year. Two summers later, Cady is allowed to return and everything seems fine and normal until her memory starts to return. 


My Thoughts:
We Were Liars is an extremely well written novel.  From the beginning, I knew that something wasn’t right about Cady’s story.  As things began to unravel, the book became more and more intriguing.  I would definitely categorize this novel as a mystery, but it also focuses a lot on the dynamics of Cady’s family.  I am hesitant to say too much about the story line because this is definitely a book where you don’t want to give away the ending.  Those of you who turn to the back of a book and read the last chapter before reading the rest of the story, don't do it this time!! Let it be a surprise.

Totally agree! She got me on this one. I did not feel the same about her other book, Genuine Fraud, it was not nearly as well done.

Have you heard all the buzz about double cleansing? Below you'll find a basic how-to and defense for double cleansing (with Some Call Me Crunchy product suggestions, of course)! 

Why double cleanse?

Double Cleansing is a must because having a clean canvas to apply toners and skin nourishing serums is very important. If you spend lots of money on serums and hydrating creams, but your skin isn't clean, those powerhouse products won't actually do very much...

Transitioning Your Skincare for Fall/Winter

November 17, 2023

A while back, I wrote a post about switching up your skincare routine for summer. It can be so very frustrating to think you've gotten your skin figured out only for the season to change and it's almost like you're starting over at ground zero. The truth is that our skin can actually be very different depending on the season. My skin is oilier in the summer and super dry in the winter ...
