Books: My Thoughts on The Lies We Told

The Lies We Told The Lies We Told by Camilla Way
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This was my first ready from this author and I had high hopes for this book as the synopsis sounded very interesting. Unfortunately, this book and I didn't get along. I wouldn't say that I disliked it, just that it was ok.

The story was very slow to grab my interest and I almost put it down without finishing it. When things finally started to click into place, the story did pick up, but the end portion of this book I feel was either misplaced in the story line or wasn't quite necessary. I knew going into it that we would be bouncing between at least two different story lines, but that still confused me a bit. I wasn't curious about any of the characters, and I didn't find the story suspenseful at all. Maybe it's because I read a lot of mysteries that this didn't quite grab my attention, but I'm beginning to think that psychological suspense is just not a genre for me.

Thank you to the Penguin Random House First to Read Program for providing me with a copy of this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
