This Lullaby By Sarah Dessen

5/5 This book really did it for me. The first Sarah Dessen book I ever read and it practically knocked the breath right out of me. First of all, let me tell you what gets a 5/5 in my book. The book has to make me burst out laughing, call the main character a complete dumbass, start flipping out, and most importantly, make me cry my eyes out. 

Remy is about to go off to college and helping her mother out with one more thing. One more wedding which will take place during the summer, handle her job, hang out with friends, and still help her older brother. Remy has a lot on her plate before she can go to Stanford. The last thing she needed was for Dexter, the too tall, to lanky guy to fall on her lap. Literally. Dexter is everything Remy cannot stand-he’s in a band, he’s too lanky, he’s too confident. And oh yeah, he’s in a BAND. So why can’t he just leave her alone?

I wish Sarah Dessen would write a series so badly that it hurts. But something I really didn’t like was just the very last page. It seemed so ordinary compared to a very extravagant summer. 

What I love most about this book is the mother-daughter that happens and Remy’s mom really doesn’t want Remy to give up on something that might be her chance. And that love isn’t perfect and that’s okay too. I love how much of a bitch Remy is because if she wasn’t, I don’t think Dexter would have tried so hard, and that the point wouldn’t have gotten a crossed as hard as it did for me. I have read all of Sarah Dessen’s book and they are all amazing and deserve a read from everyone. 

Liar By Justine Larbalestier

3.34/5 I really didn’t know what to think or believe about this book when I finished it.

17 year-old Micah is a compulsive liar. You can’t believe a word she says, and she’s perfectly fine with that. Until her boyfriend, Zach gets murder by someone and she has to finally tell the truth to get it off her chest. But how can you trust anything that a compulsive liar says? 

What I don’t like is that this book got me really confused at some parts, and I really couldn’t believe half of what she said because they were so outrageous and stupid. Also, I didn’t like the ending because, even though it was different from what I thought would have happened I was still a bit hesitant to believe it.

I like that she lied a lot. I’m not even sure why, I guess I like it because I’m know as the gullible one in my group of friends and I like how I could tell with some of the lies which ones were legit and which ones weren’t (even if I only caught two lies). I don’t think I will be continuing reading any more of Justine Larbalestier just because this one bored me.
