    'The Best Lies' is an electric YA thriller that will have readers on the edge of their seat until the very end. I'm a huge fan of this genre, so I immediately knew I had to read this as soon as possible. I wasn't exactly sure what to expect, but this book went above and beyond anything...

    We?re the heroes in this story, born of tragic circumstances, yes, but also strong enough to overcome them. We?ll win the day. This story drew me in right away with the taunt plotting and characters that felt like they could be a real teens. I liked the change of now...

    If you've ever wanted to know about the other side of obsessive friendship, this is the book you need. One of my favourite tropes to read about in books is the sick, pining friendship, and I've only really imagined it from the person who's pining. The Best Liestakes this trope and tw...

    5 stars. ?We have been sold a lie. Our parents thought nothing of hurting us in the name of love. What a thing, to learn as a child, that pain is love. That love is bruises on our bodies and scars in our minds.? The Best Lies follows Remy Tsai, who used to know how her story ...

    I am a complete sucker for hyper-dependent female friendship stories that go every kind of wrong and this one is brilliant. Read it! I finished this book yesterday as I flew to New Jersey to visit my best friend. The irony isn't lost on me. Thank you to my GR friend, Miche...

    "Love is truest, strongest when you need each other, when you can't live without each other. Anything less is ephemeral. Anything less risks heartbreak." If ever there's been a quote to capture a skewed view of love, it is the one above, but it captures what it's like to be young, d...

    This was a book that I was looking forward to but I am so disappointed by what I just read. This was portrayed as a mystery type read and that couldn?t be farther from what this actually was. This read nothing like a mystery/thriller like it?s portrayed to be. It really read like a...

    This book was so disappointing. Maybe that's my fault, but I went in with high expectations based on the title alone. With that being said let's begin with the characters: Remy: absolutely the most annoying protagonist (if you want to call her that) ever. She's extremely clingy and ...
