Book Review: Family of Liars – E. Lockhart

A massive thank you to Hot Key Books, Tandem Collective UK and the author for this copy!

The blurb from the back of the book:

The thrilling prequel to the TikTok phenomenon and #1 New York Times bestseller We Were Liars takes readers back to the story of another summer, another generation, and the secrets that will haunt them for decades to come.

A windswept private island off the coast of Massachusetts.
A hungry ocean, churning with secrets and sorrow.
A fiery, addicted heiress. An irresistible, unpredictable boy.
A summer of unforgivable betrayal and terrible mistakes.

Welcome back to the Sinclair family.
They were always liars.

SPOILER ALERT! Read We Were Liars first.
(No word of a lie, it’s better that way …)


Firstly, I would absolutely recommend reading We Were Liars first!!

This was such a great read full of twists and turns. I didn’t think it could top it’s sequel, but I think I liked this one better.

I loved learning more about the four sisters when they were teenagers. I felt for poor Rosemary especially!

It was interesting to read about Carrie, and theorise about what was going to happen.

I had an inkling about Carrie’s lineage and I was correct!

I loved reading about Tipper and Harris, and I learnt why the sisters are how they are in We Were Liars.

Excellent plot that kept me guessing from start to finish!

I gave it ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My name is Lisa and the pooch in my profile picture is my baby, Skye. I love everything bookish! I also find things like tarot and angel cards, along with runes and gemstones really interesting and I like to incorporate these into my photos.
