    There are three things you should know about me: 1. I'm in a coma. 2. My husband doesn't love me any more. 3. Sometimes I lie. HOLY MOTHER OF TWISTS. I'm not usually a fan of books that hang everything on their twists or reveals, but it seems I can make an exception when my mind explodes multiple times from all the surprises.

I'm not usually a fan of books that hang everything on their twists or reveals, but it seems I can make an exception when my mind explodes multiple times from all the surprises. This is a book where it's important to go into it knowing as little as possible, which makes it difficult to review. But I shall try. Amber Reynolds wakes up in hospital, but to everyone else she is in a coma. She can't move or speak. She can hear the people who visit her, but they're not aware of it. The narrative jumps between the "Now" in the hospital room where Amber attempts to uncover what happened, a "Then" leading up to what happened, and childhood diaries from decades ago. It all starts very intriguing but it also seems like a standard mystery. Amber knows her husband is somehow involved in what happened to her, but she can't remember why. Through her narration, we must piece together the truth. Well, the truth as Amber sees it. Or the truth she gives us. Sometimes I Lie is compelling, but I gave it four instead of five stars because it lingers a little too long on the not-knowing in the earlier chapters, through hallucinations and dream sequences. There was a very clear point to me when this book went from "not bad" to "really effin' good". I'll let you work out when that is. If you figure out all the twists and turns, then you must be one hell of an astute reader. I thought the author set it up perfectly, framing the narrative secrets just right so that I didn't even fully work out the questions I should be asking, never mind the answers. There were parts that left me speechless in shock. The epilogue leaves the story open for a sequel. I'm interested to see what the author will do with it; I only hope it is actually necessary, seeing that all the secrets seem to have been given up in this book. But who knows? Maybe the author has even more wild surprises up her sleeve. Trigger warning: (view spoiler)[Rape; somewhat graphic. (hide spoiler)] Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube

A Crazy, Intriguing, Twisty-Turny Psychological Thriller that Makes Your Heart Pound and leaves you Completely Dumbfounded. I am not lying or trying to josh you. Upon finishing "Sometimes I Lie," I re-read the last few pages over and over and then I just sat there, staring out, shocked; wild eyed - almost in disbelief. You've heard about the plot: 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. And that is all I will say about it, as you must read this one for yourselves. The characters are flawless. But can they be trusted? Is Amber's memory of them reliable? Sorry, but I'm afraid I can't tell you. When reading the book more often than not, my heart pounded and my breath caught in my throat. I constantly tried to figure out what was real and what was not real and more often than not, I was wrong. It blew my mind. I finished the book a few days ago and I'm still trying to find it. Published on Goodreads and Amazon on 5.9.17.

Amber Reynolds wakes up and doesn’t know where she is. For a moment she wonders if it might be a hotel. But then she realizes she’s in a hospital. She doesn’t know how she got there. Why can’t she open her eyes? She knows her name, that she’s thirty-five years old, and that she’s married to Paul. Memories come but she pushes them away. Something very bad has happened but she can’t remember what or when. “Why isn’t he here?” But she may already know the answer. She screams but no one can hear her. “I just need someone to switch me back on” There is a word that she doesn’t like. She’s alone with the word. She can’t move. She can’t speak. Coma She wonders how badly she’s injured. She’s all there in body and mind. She’s starting to have a hard time separating dreams from reality. Time has a different meaning. She counts seconds. She realizes just how long she’s been alone. She doesn’t know what happened to her… Now HE’S there. He’s crying. She doesn’t want to be alone with him but she doesn’t know why. “Hold on” he says. So many questions… Another person comes in …another voice. “You did this to yourself” Whoa! My head is spinning. What a mind-bending and engrossing read! I had been hearing great things about this novel, and I’m happy to say that for me, it absolutely lived up to the hype. So many things I didn’t see coming. I thought I had things all figured out until something would happen that had me second guessing myself. Nothing is as it seems. With so many great twists and turns, you have no idea who you can trust. “Sometimes I Lie” is Alice Feeney’s debut novel and what a debut it was! This was a well-written and compelling psychological thriller. I can’t wait to see what Alice Feeney writes next.

    I'd like to thank Macmillan Audio and Goodreads Giveaways for this copy! 🖤 I never have as much time to plow through Audio books as I do print, due to small children, but don't let the amount of time I took getting through this fool you. I've seen varied reviews of this one and I'm definitely on the love it side of the spectrum! While I was expecting a little bit of the ending (only because I'd heard of this book many moons ago from my U.K. Friends), it didn't ruin the story for me one bit.

While I was expecting a little bit of the ending (only because I'd heard of this book many moons ago from my U.K. Friends), it didn't ruin the story for me one bit. There were plenty of twists and turns I didn't see coming throughout the entire book. It's been awhile since a novel took me by surprise in such a way. Don't read reviews going into this; just go in blind. You will be so glad that you did. For what it's worth, I think a good amount of the reason as to why this was a 5 star book in my experience was the narrator! Holy cow was she amazing! She knew just the right, subtle inflections to give throughout for each character; there was none of that awkward trying to fully change her voice in a cheesy form. She was absolutely brilliant, so much so that I immediately went to audible to find out what other books she's narrated as I would listen to her reading out her grocery list. She's THAT good! Highly recommended to all psychological suspense fans.

    ** 4.5 STARS** All psychological thrillers mess with your head, that's what we expect, but Alice Feeney has taken it a step further with this clever, compelling story. A story related to us by Amber Reynolds as she lies in a hospital bed whilst in a coma. I really don't want to give anything away here - it would be way too easy to give away a crucial segment of the plot and spoil the whole thing for anyone else, let's just say that this is possibly one of the most twisty turny books that I've had ** 4.5 STARS** All psychological thrillers mess with your head, that's what we expect, but Alice Feeney has taken it a step further with this clever, compelling story.

I really don't want to give anything away here - it would be way too easy to give away a crucial segment of the plot and spoil the whole thing for anyone else, let's just say that this is possibly one of the most twisty turny books that I've had the pleasure to read. The characters are brilliant ( some of them are chilling ) but they're very much at home in their own skins. As I've already indicated, the plot is superb, and has everything that a great psychological thriller should have. I don't know whether I'm on my head or my heels right now. What an almighty twist awaits those of you who have yet to read this book - phew! Alice Feeney is one talented writer, the narrative was spiced with some wonderful phrases, almost poetic. Here are just a couple of examples - 'I tread carefully over a carpet of lies, trying not to disturb them' 'We all have to have something or someone to love, otherwise the love inside us has nowhere to go ' Well, I think I've rattled on enough right now - if I were you, I'd just grab myself a copy just as soon as I could. I'm sure it'll keep you as enthralled as I've been. *Thank you to Netgalley, Harlequin and Alice Feeney for my ARC in exchange for an honest unbiased review*

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. the story alternates between three different points in amber’s life: now/then/before. or more precisely, in coma/leading up to coma/childhood journal, and it’s full of messy relationships, tangled secrets, plots, lies, and much shade. it’s a fun ride full of toxic people with plenty to chew on. and the promises of you’re a twist! and you’re a twist! and you’re a twist! are no lie. at the end of it all i have a couple of blurry areas - some timeline turbulence, some questions about edward and some miscellaneous loose ends, but for the most part it was fun smooth sailing. i read it in one day (or one night, since my night job has made me a daysleeper), in a mad dash to get ALL THE ANSWERS!, and if ever there was a one-sitting book, it's this one. call in sick and be cozy. you have four months to work on your fake cough. *********************************************** FOUR AND A HALF STARS! this is one hell of a debut. and it requires a careful careful tiptoe review. which will come SOON - i got behind again - eep! come to my blog!

I just couldn’t suspend my disbelief long enough to get sucked in and love this book like I wanted to! Three narratives intersect: A woman lies in a hospital bed in a coma. She can hear everything that is going on around her but cannot communicate to let those who love her know that something is very wrong. Switch to days before her accident, and we learn about her life. Her marriage is failing, she’s about to lose her job, and she’s sick of playing second fiddle to her sister. We also go back in time to read a young girl’s diary written in the 1990’s, which gradually reveals that all is not what it seems. I found myself really bored while reading this. The only part that piqued my interest was the young girl’s diary. Her voice was chilling, and I loved reading her POV on the events that defined her childhood. I love a manipulative narrator, and the author of the diary did not disappoint. On the other hand, the other two narratives moved slowly (too slowly IMHO), and then when all was revealed and said and done my first thought was that was just ridiculous! Are there really that many psychos out there? Maybe I have just read too many thrillers and have become too jaded to enjoy outrageous plots and twists, which was certainly the case with this book.

I had to order it from the UK to get my fix! It was...worth it! Amber is the most unreliable narrator I’ve ever encountered. This book will have you questioning everything you thought you knew all along the way. I found the premise completely original. The only fault I found was that, while the diary chapters were necessary to propel the plot forward and connect the loose threads of the intricate web, they were a bit too lengthy. If you like endings that are tied up neatly, or even endings with simple closure, this book may drive you mad! 🙃 There is quite a bit left to interpretation, and I liked that because it fit with the whole questioning tone of the book. That’s about all I can say. I don’t want to give even the tiniest bit away and spoil the fun for you. Curl up with this blockbuster early in the day, and you’ll be wondering where the time went! 😴 Thanks to the sisters for another awesome discussion!

This book follows our protagonist Amber as she wakes up in the hospital, in a coma with no memory of the past 24 hours as she attempts to work out in her mind how and what and why this is all happening to her. We as readers are trapped in the head of a less then reliable narrator (as subtly implied by the title of this book) as she pieces together the events leading up to her tragic predicament. This book to me was a bit of a mess. The author decided instead of really developing and working on one or two major shocking reveals or duplicitous characters she would throw in every possible thriller cliche imaginable. Which in the end worked against her (at least in my eyes) because it became borderline comical, like how many horrific events can happen to one woman within a week time span? It got ridiculous and just cheesy. Murder, rape, sociopaths, impersonating, fire, revenge and hallucinations Amber seemed to have experienced all spectrums of human depravity at some point with in the week. One of the biggest reveals was based on these diary passages from what we are led to believe is Amber's childhood and can I just say the reveal with those bloody diary entries in the end was not good enough to justify me drudging through chapter after chapter of the whiniest and most dull diary in the world. So much of this book was a set up yet at the same time nothing of importance was truly set up properly. The reveals were so random and out of no where that I was left uninterested and not at all shocked, you can't really be stunned by a characters behaviour when you never truly got to know them in the first place. Overall, this is cluster fuck of a novel that has the trappings of a thriller without any rhyme or reason or proper execution. I would not recommend this read.

I thought this book was good from the start but by the ending it propelled into the brilliance category. This could very well be THE talked about psychological thriller of 2017 and you need to get this one to read any which way you can. This makes The Girl on the Train looks like child's play. This novel messed with my head. I may be recovering for quite some time. Everything just works. Plot. Characters. Reveals. Twists. Prose. Everything is 5 star in this one and it's in my short list of Top 17 books of 2017, highly likely to get a top spot. If they don't make a movie about this book I'll be starting a personal petition to do so. Absolutely brilliant, entertaining and clever fiction! This is one talented author. Oh yes indeed. If you love a good twist you will adore this book. I recommend it to everyone. Anyone that reads books. I was honestly stunned at the end of the book. You know those moments? What the..? Holy flak Batman! I'm revealing nothing. I'll be annoyed at any review that drops in spoilers for this one. The less you know the better. I couldn't put it down and it left me wanting for more. More of the story. More from this author. Alice Feeney take a bow. Don't miss this one. Let it take you on it's journey to mess with your head and emotions. Just when you think you've got it all worked out...I bet you don't. Sublime! Thank you to the publisher for my ARC of this book via NetGalley. Thank you to Alice Feeney for writing it!

She shares her tale of what happened in the few days leading up to the coma and in the past. Because she has partial amnesia and is high on drugs, she makes for the ultimate unreliable narrator so you can’t figure out what is real and what is scrambled. Once you make it to the end and all the deceptions are unraveled, it makes for an extremely satisfying story.

I'm so done with superficial, twisty for twists' sake and I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M SAYING THAT!!! 😢 There are plenty of books that offer much more in the way of characterization and believable plot twists. The Flight Attendant, Unraveling Oliver, Sharp Objects The Kind Worth Killing to name a few. I would absolutely recommend SOMETIMES I LIE for a quick, entertaining read! Just know that you’re getting a little guilty pleasure without a lasting payoff🙈

She doesn’t remember what happened to her in the past 24 hours. She can’t move, speak or even breathe on her own. The only thing that she is still able to do is to listen what is going on around her. The narrative switches between “Now” where Amber attempts to figure out what led her to comma; “Then” a short period of time prior the accident; and “Before” where the readers are able to track her childhood through the entries of some diaries. The most compelling evidence of the novel is the introduction. Amber confesses that she lies; we know that we have to do with an unreliable narration. Nevertheless, we also know that she has a partial amnesia, she is under drugs and thus, it is a real struggle to comprehend where the illusion ends and where the truth starts. On the one hand, I caught myself multiple times considering that I’m into a mind of a psychopath. On the other hand, I could trust no one since they all gave me vibes of sociopath. As a result, after a certain point I gave up attempting to conceive a reasonable explanation. I just dissolved into the narrative. There were some lines that drove me completely insane as I couldn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. It was like being into a dream. "…but nightmares are dreams too…" And then came the reveals and the twists and I was completely mind blown. I was like that: And then like that: And at the end I was completely demented as the story came to the end and I have been left with so many questions. "… X told me to do it…" Feeney plays with our minds skillfully through her well plotted, addictive, awe-inspiring, and creepy story. She is not afraid to sketch her characters by giving them the freedom to get lost into illusions and mind traps and at the same time to find their way back to the reality and truth in order to declare that: "The thing about the truth is that it sucks." So, I’m asking you that: How often do you lie?

    A main character who is in a coma and sometimes lies. I'm all in! Quite a spellbinding read from start to finish. We are not sure how Amber ended up in the hospital in this coma , but she does admit that sometimes she lies. This was like a puzzle and I was trying to put the pieces together, but couldn't entirely trust all the pieces. Very cleverly written and I loved hearing what Amber was thinking while in this coma sizing up everyone in the room and giving us her insight. There was so much goin A main character who is in a coma and sometimes lies.

Very cleverly written and I loved hearing what Amber was thinking while in this coma sizing up everyone in the room and giving us her insight. There was so much going on, I had to hold my breath too keep up. The narrative switches from Now (in coma) to Then (before the coma). I loved trying to figure out what the lies were and who to trust. It is super twisty and just when you think you have it figured out another twist flies your way. A fast read for me because I needed to find out what was going on. The ending was my favorite part because it leaves you questioning yourself and if you perhaps missed anything. I have a theory, but I am still questioning myself. Just read it and see what you think . Thanks to NetGalley and Flatiron books for my copy.

    I swallowed this book in two, big gulps! The book starts with Amber waking up in a hospital unable to move but able to listen and smell everything around her. She's in a coma! She can't remember how she ended up there but little by little she starts reconstructing the events from the conversations of her visitors and memories. Amber suspects her husband and maybe her sister but is not sure... This was an excellent psychological thriller! The story alternates between the present and the past.

It takes place in England and is intriguing and fast-paced. There are elements of dysfunctional relationships and you must read this book carefully, if you blink you may miss very important details. I can't say much about the book without entering into spoilers but overall I enjoyed it and recommend it to all readers of thrillers. Thanks to NetGalley, the author, and the publisher for providing me with a copy of this publication in exchange for an honest review.

I liked that, it has been a very long time since I have read a novel quite this psychologically twisty. The chapters alternate with Amber, now in a coma, but able to think but not move or reach out, with chapters from before, detailing what happened, and journal entries of a young girl. Creepy too, since Amber is my eldest daughters name. Does anyone remember the bad seed? For the longest time couldn't quite figure out what the journal had to do with anything, but as with most everything else in this novel, the author reveals exactly when the author wants to reveal. Unlikable characters? You bet! Didn't matter though, was too caught up in the story. It was nice to read a thriller where I could just go with the flow, just follow along. Not that I had much choice since I could never quite figure out what was going on. Well, some things were obvious and as they appeared but the ending, in my estimation very, very well done. With a cliffhanger to boot. This was another sisters read that made for a great discussion. ARC from Netgalley.

    2.5 ⭐. This is a review of the audio version. I know that I’m in the very minority but this was just too crazy. I found the first half of the book very creepy. It almost read a bit like horror for me. Maybe that’s because I hate hospitals. I’m not sure. Then came a point in which the book took on massive twists and soooooo many twists. The last couple hours of audio were over the top in my opinion. Too many outrageous twists!!! It was like Gone Girl on steroids. Maybe I just read it wrong becaus 2.5 ⭐️.

Case in point: Amber Reynolds wakes up in a hospital bed in which she can hear the voices around her, but she cannot react in a physical manner. Our girl is in what's perceived to be a deep coma. She identifies the hospital routine and workers by their perfumes, tobacco use, etc. Amber still doesn't know why she is here until the pieces slowly start to fit together. She recognizes her husband's and her sister's presence. What role did they play in all this? While Sometimes I Lie is an intense psychological freefall into the great unknown, it did have some questionable sequences in its construct for me. I think that we lovers of mystery/thrillers have just about had our fill of the over-use of "Then and Now" along the lines of every story in the past few years. This one also implements diary inserts from 1992. Admittedly, this was the only way to keep our finger on the pulse of Amber through the past years to the present situation. But, seriously, this can be exhausting for the reader along with an unreliable narrator. The lies do begin to stick to your socks like chunks of sticky velcro. Feeney ratchets up the ending to a frenzy of unbelievable events......a sort of Ninja mixer on high speed drowning everything out. Sometimes I Lie has garnered many 5-star reviews. You have to go into this one without any outside influences and details. See for yourself if there's a final checkmate on this multi-tiered gameboard for yourself.

Amber Reynolds wakes up in a hospital bed. She's conscious but unable to move or speak. Even though she can't remember anything about the incident that caused her injuries, she's certain that her husband has something to do with it. As the professional and marital troubles that plague her present and the traumas that defined her past come to light, the circumstances leading to Amber's misfortune become clearer. The voices in my head are louder than the silence in the room. The loudest is my own, reminding me constantly of all the things I have said and done, all the things I haven’t, all the things I should have. I can feel it coming. There are always ripples in the water before a big wave. I’ve learned already to just let it take me; far easier to surrender and let it wash me up when it’s good and ready. I fear one day the dark water will swallow me down for good, and I won’t always be able to resurface. Switches are either on or off. People are either up or down. When I’m down, it’s so very hard to get back up and this is the farthest I’ve ever fallen. Even if I could remember my way back to normal, I don’t think I’d recognize myself when I got there. There are so many reasons why I shouldn’t like this book–it features the world's most unreliable narrator, amnesia, some tricky trickiness, and the very last page left me irritated AND confused–but I loved every second of the reading experience! The story grabbed my attention by tapping into both my fascination with creepy children and my fear of being trapped in my own body with no way to communicate. Personal story: In my worst recurring nightmare, a shadowy figure runs into my bedroom or stands over me. I feel awake, but I can't move or scream. It's the freakiest thing! Naturally, I'm drawn to stories about being "locked in"! Things have changed since we were children, perhaps not as much as we might have liked, but the world is a different place. Faster, louder, lonelier. Unlike the world around us, we haven’t changed at all, not really. History is a mirror and we’re all just older versions of ourselves; children disguised as adults. Novels featuring an amnesiac main character are usually so boring for me because the main character obsesses about their amnesia the entire time, so I'm just impatiently waiting for the inevitable rush of memories at the end (hopefully!). However, this story was well-executed. The perfect balance of chapters about the distant past, the recent past, and the present kept things moving along at a steady pace. Through entries from childhood diaries, we get insight into some character-defining events. The "Then" chapters reveal Amber's escalating professional and marital struggles in the days preceding her accident. The "Now" scenes in her hospital room are so tense! Amber is mentally alert, so through her thoughts we experience the frustration of a competent mind but an unresponsive body. As far as her visitors know, she is unaware that they're even there. Along with Amber, we hope to get clues of what happened that fateful night from the snippets of conversations we can catch. She doesn't trust many of her visitors for reasons she can't yet articulate, so I never felt like she was safe in her hospital bed. However, I didn't trust Amber either! She admits to telling lies from the very beginning, plus what she’s saying can sometimes feel oddly disconnected with what’s actually happening. Warning: There's one triggery scene that I thought was unnecessary and went on way too long based on other information. People are not mirrors—they don’t see you how you see yourself. Many of the quotes I've featured mention ghosts, mirrors, and distorted reflections. Amber has spent so much of her life pretending that she's lost all sense of self: "Some people are ghosts before they are dead." She describes her semi-emergence from the coma as being "returned to [her] factory settings as a human being, rather than a human doing." If Amber regains her memories of the days leading up to that fateful night, will she recognize the person she'd become? What version of her will emerge? This book also deals with the nature of lies and the narratives people instinctively create for self-preservation. Amber confesses to occasionally lying, but what does she lie about and why does she do it? Sometimes people consciously lie, but sometimes their "lies" are their honest perceptions. Two people can experience the same event in two different ways and both their versions feel true to them. You can never be sure who to trust in this book! Sometimes I Lie is an addictive read. I love a super twisty suspense novel that holds onto its dramatics and darkness from beginning to end!  If you liked this book, you might also want to check out The Visitors (writing style, slow-build, weird sibling relationships, flashbacks to a bizarre family situation, ultra twisted) and White Bodies (strange sister relationship). People think that good and bad are opposites but they’re wrong, they’re just a mirror image of one another in broken glass. __________ I received this book for free from NetGalley and Flatiron Books. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. It's available now!

    I read so many psychological thrillers that they tend to blend together. It is often hard for a novel to be twisty enough. So when you go into a book knowing nothing except the protagonists name and three things about her including that she sometimes lies. Well..you never want to quite believe anything she says. We know she's a liar, so should it be easy enough to predict the lies?

Well..you never want to quite believe anything she says. We know she's a liar, so should it be easy enough to predict the lies? It was an interesting question I posed myself and found that even when I was right about one little lie, all the big ones still smacked me right in the face. Even though I was second guessing every thing I was told, the twists still got by me not giving themselves away until the reveal. Sometimes I Lie was quite the pleasant surprise. 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. This is how the story begins. With those statements above. And then the story opens with Amber in a coma. Alternating between present day (now) and a week prior (then) leading up to how she got there. It doesn't take long for an additional timeline to be added to the book set in 1991 (before) in the form of diary entries. The characters are all pretty unlikable and not without flaws. Entirely complex individuals. You never know quite who you can trust. There are plenty of secrets. And it is all just really great. This is an author I'll be watching out for. I had a couple quotes that stood out to me, but I honestly don't want to give anything at all away from the plot. So I'm withholding as hard as that is. I hope you'll just take my word for it that the writing and plot are both wonderful. It is dark, compelling, and very deceiving.

    Amber wakes up but she can't move a muscle, not even to open her eyes. She soon realizes she's in a coma, totally lucid but unable to move. She can hear everything that is happening around her and gradually discovers she had a car accident and is in the hospital in a coma. She has no memory of the accident.

She soon realizes she's in a coma, totally lucid but unable to move. She can hear everything that is happening around her and gradually discovers she had a car accident and is in the hospital in a coma. She has no memory of the accident. What follows is a narrative by Amber, with the chapters alternating between the week before the accident and the current day with Amber trying to regain her memory and make sense of the conversations of the staff and family members who visit her. Interspersed among these two timelines are childhood diary entries. The prose is often dream-like with a stream of consciousness style as Amber tries to make sense of it all. It perfectly highlighted the confusion and frustration of being able to hear but not move or respond. The reader is in the dark too and we know from the blurb that we have an unreliable narrator so I was suspicious of everyone. I began to question what, and who, was real. However, I grew frustrated when I'd read 2/3 of the book and was still totally in the dark and growing weary of the narrative style. That is likely a consequence of having my reading interrupted by a few days of no reading. I recommend this book be read quickly in one sitting or, at most, over a couple of days. The last 1/3 of the book was unputdownable with the revelations and twists coming fast. If you enjoy neat tidy endings this isn't the book for you. As soon as I finished I had to discuss what the heck just happened. Luckily, this was a group read with the Traveling Sisters, and it was great fun to dissect as we read and discuss our guesses and theories along the way. In a field saturated with psychological thrillers that sometimes start to all sound similar, with the same tired tropes, this book was unique and well done. The author managed to surprise me, not once, but several times! The only thing that kept it from 5 stars was my frustration with things not moving along a little quicker in the first 2/3, and maybe an eye-roll or two at how a certain event played out. The author is busy at work on her second book and I will definitely be anxiously awaiting it's publication. I read this with Brenda, Melisa, Diane, Holly, Jennifer, Kaceey, Dana, and Lindsay.

    3.5 stars This was a twisty, creepy, suspenseful story revolving around Amber who is in a coma after an unknown event occurs. The narration switches from Then – Amber before the coma, and Now – Amber while in the coma.

With that being said, I enjoyed this novel, but didn’t love it as much as I thought I would. I didn’t like or connect with any of the characters. The storyline was interesting but not outstanding for me. I enjoyed the suspense of trying to figure out exactly how it all would come together in the end, but it didn’t ‘wow’ me. There were a few questions left at the end that left me intrigued to see if there would be a follow up novel. I read this along with the Traveling Sisters and there was a ton of great discussion! I would recommend this novel because it was enjoyable for me overall and the majority of readers, along with my Traveling Sisters, seem to absolutely love it.

It opens with the narrator telling us there are three things we need to know about her: 1) she’s in a coma, 2) her husband doesn’t love her anymore and 3) sometimes she lies. And to say more would be to say too much. It had me fully engaged. I read it in a day, keeping me up past my bed time. It had me impressed at some really clever twists — one in particular was especially spectacular. I have two reservations that prevented me from jumping on the 5 star bandwagon for this one. First, the plot takes precedence over character so at times it felt that it was more about showy turns than anything else. Second, there is a subplot that leads to a scene in the hospital that was really disturbing and to me didn’t fit in with the general feel of the book. The first reservation didn’t really prevent me from enjoying Sometimes I Lie. This is a display of cleverness — not a deep character study. It just means that this was entertaining and nothing more serious. The event giving rise to my second reservation threw me off for a while and seemed unnecessary. Anyways, I’m still trying to figure out if I got the end right. I’ve heard rumours of a sequel. I could be persuaded. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for an opportunity to read an advance copy.

    I love unreliable characters so I was very excited about this book! Unfortunately for me, most of the twists were easy to see coming and the story simply didn't impress me. It's definitely a page-turner and if you like your thrillers to be full of twists this might be worth a shot!

    Keeping with the theme of this book I’ll be reviewing this by telling you three things you should know about Sometimes I Lie and why I think it’s a must read in 2018 for psychological thriller fans! 1. It’s addictive, the true definition of unputdownable AND is also unpredictable. Twisty is not even an accurate description but it’s the best I can do, there was so much that was completely unexpected that I’m afraid to discuss the plot at all. Go in as blind as possible and hold on tight, you’re in Keeping with the theme of this book I’ll be reviewing this by telling you three things you should know about Sometimes I Lie and why I think it’s a must read in 2018 for psychological thriller fans! 1. It’s addictive, the true definition of unputdownable AND is also unpredictable. Twisty is not even an accurate description but it’s the best I can do, there was so much that was completely unexpected that I’m afraid to discuss the plot at all. Go in as blind as possible and hold on tight, you’re in for a crazy, intense ride! Then message me when you’re done so we can talk about that ending. THAT ENDING!! 2. It has a really immersive atmosphere that is both claustrophobic and exciting. Amber is in a coma but she can hear what’s going on, but she can’t see. She has no idea why she’s in the hospital and she’s frantically trying to piece together the events prior. This is told in the present as Amber recovers, a few weeks before the event that lead to her hospitalization and a series of diary entries from childhood. It’s executed flawlessly and I was hooked by each timeline, they were all equally intriguing, captivating and intense. 3. The characterization is on point, while Amber is extremely well developed the constant wondering if her memory of events was accurate or not kept me on the edge of my seat. Could I trust her intuition, after all she’s an admitted liar, so trying to figure out what was true and what was false was just downright fun and entertaining! I’ll close by encouraging you to read this, it’s fast paced, exciting and brings something fresh to a genre full of authors trying to be the next Gone Girl on the Train and then fell Into the Water. This is unique and a massively impressive debut and I’ll be preordering Sometimes I Kill ASAP. If you’re in the US and want a chance to win one of three copies check out my Instagram for a giveaway!
