As much as I love a bit of Top Ten Tuesday, I thought I’d try a different weekly tag today. I first saw Goodreads Monday over at Confessions Of A YA Reader and it’s hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. This is my first attempt at this tag, but I think all you need to do is show one book from your TBR that you’re excited to read. Images and blurbs are from Goodreads (hence the name!).
A beautiful and distinguished family.
A private island.
A brilliant, damaged girl; a passionate, political boy.
A group of four friends—the Liars—whose friendship turns destructive.
A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lies upon lies.
We Were Liars is a modern, sophisticated suspense novel from New York Times bestselling author, National Book Award finalist, and Printz Award honoree E. Lockhart.
And if anyone asks you how it ends, just LIE.
I’m slightly in love with that blurb. It’s definitely got polarized responses, but with Gossip Girl off Netflix indefinitely, I need some rich kid drama to fill my day! For the next book, I got a bit confused and thought I had to mention a book from my WTR read pile too, oops. I don’t know if this is a famous book and I just live in a hole, but I’d only first heard of Eliza And Her Monsters really recently. It looks like a great rec for mental health issues, although I’m never that good with books about people losing their sanity.
Her story is a phenomenon. Her life is a disaster.
In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, and friendless. Online, she’s LadyConstellation, the anonymous creator of the wildly popular webcomic Monstrous Sea. Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves the online one, and she has no desire to try.
Then Wallace Warland, Monstrous Sea’s biggest fanfiction writer, transfers to her school. Wallace thinks Eliza is just another fan, and as he draws her out of her shell, she begins to wonder if a life offline might be worthwhile.
But when Eliza’s secret is accidentally shared with the world, everything she’s built—her story, her relationship with Wallace, and even her sanity—begins to fall apart.
Feel free to link up your Goodreads Monday in the comments and I’ll try and check it out. Have you read any of these? Would you try one? Let me know in the comments!
