** Thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. **
I buddy read this book with Payton @ Payton’s Book Thoughts. If you want to read her review for Liar you can do so here. Me and Payton decided on doing at least one buddy read a month and this was one of the two we picked for July. We had hoped to read this book all in one day but that didn’t quite happen, but we came really close. If you aren’t following her blog you really should.
I’m not sure how great of a review this is going to be because I really don’t want to spoil anything for those of you who haven’t read it yet. Every time I think of something I want to mention I have to take it out because it spoils something. So with that being said I will do my best, just know that it might not be a very in depth review, not that I usually do in depth reviews.
This was my first book by K.L. Slater and I have to say I really enjoyed it. The beginning was a little slow going to me but things started picking up and I was drawn into the story. It was highly addicting and I just couldn’t get enough of it. I wanted to know what was going to happen.
When I started this book I wasn’t expecting the British Slang so I was a little thrown off by it but the more I read the more I got used to it.
I think we could have done without some of the side stories because to me they just seemed like filler.
I will say the author had me. I definitely wasn’t expecting any of the twists, I mean that ending blew my mind because I wasn’t expecting it at all, but at the same time I felt like it was a little rushed and it left me with some unanswered questions.
There is so much more I want to talk about but I just don’t know how to without spoiling it so I am going to leave it at that.
I would definitely recommend this to those who are looking for a book you just can’t put down with some shocking twists.
Have you read Liar? What are your thoughts on this book? If you haven’t read it do you plan on reading it? Have you read any other books by this author?
