Review: Family of Liars by E. Lockhart

Goodreads | Waterstones

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.

Thank you to Hot Key Books for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I’m glad I grabbed the opportunity to pick up this book when I was offered the chance, because I honestly don’t think I’d have picked it up otherwise. Reading We Were Liars and Family of Liars back to back was such a great experience, I really felt the atmosphere and got so tangled up in the writing.

I really like the unique writing style of the Liars books. I’ve read quite a few of E. Lockhart’s books over the years and We Were Liars was always the most memorable one for me. The atmosphere is also impeccable and may well be my favourite thing about this series as a whole. It made me feel like I really want to go on holiday and gave me all of the summer vibes, despite the dark undertones to these thrillers.

I felt quite a lot of disconnect between the characters from Family of Liars and We Were Liars, and I also found them harder to like and relate to in this book. I have mixed feelings for all of the Liars, but this one just felt a little more forgettable to me.

Overall, I did enjoy a lot of aspects of this book and it definitely kept me reading! Thank you Hot Key for the opportunity to read-along this one!

3.5 out of 5 stars


May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
