My thoughts on My Lies, Your Lies
This is a good read filled with twisted mind games involving an author and a ghost writer. I felt it took a bit of time for the story to really get going. However Susan Lewis’s lyrical writing made that build up very atmospheric.
What’s really cool about this book is that it’s a very meta read, as it’s a book within a book. The story within features a tale of dizzy young love that will have you feeling confused, a bit uncertain but also totally absorbed. The characters scatter lies and half-truths and I loved trying to work it all out.
I adored the isolated old house setting, complete with an idyllic writers room in it’s own tower. It oozed creepy vibes. The perfect location for a crazy tale of obsession, betrayal and revenge to be etched out.Do you love twisted mind games, even better literary twisted mind games, then you need to hear about #MyLiesYourLies by Susan Lewis Click To Tweet
The ending annoyed me a little, as I wasn’t too sure how realistic everyones reactions felt. That aside this was an emotional and engaging page-turner for me, as I just had to know where it was all going.
