Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney

Sometimes I Lie

There are 3 things you should know about Sometimes I Lie:

  1. It’s hard to put down
  2. You don’t know who you trust
  3. It’s very twisty and messes with your head

I won’t go into too many details about the plot because it’s best to go in not knowing anything. All you need to know is the opening lines:

My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me:
1. I’m in a coma.
2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore.
3. Sometimes I lie.

Goodreads is exploding with 4 and 5 star reviews for Sometimes I Lie. I enjoyed it, but I didn’t love it. I think after the third twist, it got a bit unbelievable. After the one twist, I actually had to take a moment and rethink everything!

Then there is the ending. I was confused… I’m still confused. I don’t think I fully understood it and what it means, and maybe that’s what took away some of the greatness of the book. It’s one thing to have a shocker of an ending. But it’s another if you don’t get it. I heard that there will be a sequel and I’m not sure how I feel about that. I think it was a good standalone and a sequel will make it even more unbelievable.

3 calculators out of a potential 5. There was a lot of filler chapters and waiting for something to happen. The end was hard to put down and I loved how the twists messed with my head.
