The Lying Game by Sara Shepard | Book Review

(The Lying Game #1)

Published: December 7th 2010

Synopsis:

I had a life anyone would kill for.

Then someone did.

The worst part of being dead is that there’s nothing left to live for. No more kisses. No more secrets. No more gossip. It’s enough to kill a girl all over again. But I’m about to get something no one else does–an encore performance, thanks to Emma, the long-lost twin sister I never even got to meet.

Now Emma’s desperate to know what happened to me. And the only way to figure it out is to be me–to slip into my old life and piece it all together. But can she laugh at inside jokes with my best friends? Convince my boyfriend she’s the girl he fell in love with? Pretend to be a happy, care-free daughter when she hugs my parents goodnight? And can she keep up the charade, even after she realizes my murderer is watching her every move?

From Sara Shepard, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Pretty Little Liars books, comes a riveting new series about secrets, lies, and killer consequences.

Let the lying game begin.

This book was positively addicting! The only thing that prevented me from reading this in one sitting is that I didn’t have enough time. It did give me some PLL vibes at first, but overall it was its own story that I really enjoyed!

WWW Wednesday #8 (May 27)

Formerly featured @ Should Be Reading, WWW Wednesday is a meme now hosted by Sam @ Taking On a World of Words.

We simply need to answer the following questions:

  • What are you currently reading?
  • What did you recently finish reading?
  • What do you think you’ll read next?

Currently Reading?

I’m so close to finishing Inkheart!! It’s really good. As for Ignite Me, I’m super excited to finish it, as it is the third book in the Shatter me trilogy. I’m perhaps… 40% through it? Fire in Frost is quite interesting and I’m looking forward to finishing it. Around 10% through it.

Recently Finished?

I finished quite a lot of books since last wednesday! I don’t remember them all, of course. Most recently I finished: Aftermath by Tom Lewis & Wicked by Sara Shepherd. Other books I finished include End of Days by Susan Ee, Animal by Nikki Rae & Love, Rosie by Cecelia Ahern. Hopefully reviews will be coming soon!

Read Next?

I know I’m participating in a read-along for A Court of Thorns and Roses (along with several other bloggers) sometime in June, as well a buddy read with Tasha & Poulami in July for Daughter of Smoke and Bone. I don’t know when exactly I’ll be starting these, but I know I’ll be reading them! Other than those two, I’m going to continue with books on my Popsugar challenge, which will include:

I also have review copies I will be getting to:


So that’s it for this week’s WWW Wednesday! I’d love it if you link your posts below or answer the questions in a comment.

Happy reading!
