#BookReview: Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney @alicewriterland @Flatironbooks

32326398A main character who is in a coma and sometimes lies. I’m all in!

Quite a spellbinding read from start to finish! We are not sure how Amber ended up in the hospital in this coma , but she does admit that sometimes she lies. This was like a puzzle and I was trying to put the pieces together, but couldn’t entirely trust all the pieces. Very cleverly written and I loved hearing what Amber was thinking while in this coma sizing up everyone in the room and giving us her insight.  Four stars because I felt there was almost too much going on.  I’m not sure how to explain it, but with all the lies I think I wanted a more defined plot line.

The narrative switches from Now (in coma) to Then (before the coma). I loved trying to figure out what the lies were and who to trust. It is super twisty and just when you think you have it figured out another twist flies your way! A fast read for me because I needed to find out what was going on.

The ending was my favorite part because it leaves you questioning yourself and if you perhaps missed anything. I have a theory, but I guess I’ll have to wait until the next book!

This was a Traveling Sister Group Read and we had a great time discussing and guessing what would come next.


4 Stars



    • I would love your take on it Part of my issue was because I was reading another book with lying and it could have been me getting confused! I’m def. not going to read similar books together again!
