This Lie Will Kill You Reviews
What started off as a great premise turned into a hot mess with flat characters and a plot that made no sense. Chelsea Pitcher’s word building is at times beautiful, almost poetic. I liked another book of hers, but can’t see any reason to recommend THIS LIE WILL KILL YOU.
OMG! What a twisty mystery! I just loved it! The story follows 5 high school kids that get a letter in the mail inviting them to a Murder Mystery Dinner where they can win 50K. It just so happens that these 5 chosen where all involved in an incident a year prior that lead to the death of someone. I am not going to go into the story more as to not spoil it but I will say that you will never guess the ending! I highly recommend this book to everyone who loves a "who done it"!
I received a digital ARC of this title from Edelweiss for an honest review.
Five teens are invited to a locked-room, murder mystery night and the one who solves the mystery will will a $50,000 scholarship. But when they arrive and find out who their competition is for this scholarship, they realize that they have an actual death (murder?) in common. They quickly realize that the scholarship was a ruse and they're really there to figure out/confess to what happened a year about when another boy di ...more
Received an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.
One year ago, at a party in December, a series of events happened that led to the death of a teenager. Five teens had played a part in that death, but no one really knew what happened. Fast forward one year, and each of these students receive an exclusive invitation to compete for a $50,000 scholarship. After the events of last year’s party, they could each use that money for college so they all attend.
Once there, they realize they may h ...more
My hopes weren't exactly high going into this so I can safely say I was pleasantly surprised.
Its not much of a mystery (its pretty easy to figure out who dunnit), but there was a twist at the end that I was not expecting.
The language was sometimes too lyrical and flowery for the genre and it can sometimes be a little... cringe-y.
But it is wildly addicting and compulsively readable. Regardless of my criticisms above, its really quite enjoyable.
*2 WTF STARS*
In the blurb they said this would be like Clue meets Riverdale... Sounds great right? Color me intrigued!
Well, unfortunately it ended up being a big fat no for me.
I really don’t know what to say about this.
I can’t even properly put my finger on what exactly I disliked about this! The storyline was basically all over the place, I couldn’t care less about any of the characters, everything felt so unbelievably unrealistic, it was totally obvious who the bad guy was, the writing at th ...more
This was good. This is the kind of book I would love to see Netflix adapt into a series. It's enigmatic, thrilling, enjoyable and detailed.
It's a familiar theme, very I Know What You Did Last Summer meets Pretty Little Liars, but the author owns it, runs with it, and throws it into the air as dark confetti as the reader watches this mystery unfold with their eyes.
"There'd been a party to plan, with a very exclusive guest list. A killer to catch."
Five friends are invited to a murder mys ...more
I received this ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review...so here it is.
This book is a mash up of “Pretty Little Liars” meets “I Know What You Did Last Summer” with a dash of “Clue” mixed in for good measure. I think that’s where my problem with this book stems from: there’s just too much going on. It’s unnecessarily boggled, but not in a clever murder mystery kind of way.
The premise starts out solid. Five high schoolers receive an invitation for a murder mystery evening from th ...more
