A revolution. An accident. A secret.
Lies upon lies.
True love.
The truth."

         Once upon a time there was a family and in that family were four Liars. They grew up in a kingdom of private island surrounded by tormented seas. During the year they spent some time away, taking care of boring things, like school, life and etc, but every summer they went back to their kingdom where life was everything but boring. 

         But once upon a time there was an evil force, strong and powerful which occupied this world. That force ruined families and their bonds. It's a force little kids knew nothing about and it terrified them. It was ruining their childhood and everything they thought was unbreakable. They needed to fight and they needed to find a way. That's what they did. 

        Once upon a time there was a story, a story that was wonderfully written and that captured you from the start. That same story will make you laugh, cry and invite you to its world. But be careful, that story will give you much and you must give it something in return. Piece of your heart, perhaps. But worry not, that same story will keep it and take care of it. That story will also take a day of your time which you'll have to give to it, but in return it'll stay with you forever. It'll give you its eternity. 

        That same story is this story and it's a story you should read. Without thinking much about it and without excuses. Go on, chase it down and thank me later. 

My rating: 5 shining stars!

  7. !That same story will make you laugh, cry and invite you to its world. But be careful, that story will give you much and you must give it something in return. Piece of your heart, perhaps." Can you not write such perfect words to get me even more excited about this? HUH? CAN YOU NOT? Because I want to drop everything and run to this baby. Such a great way to write a review, Tanja :D

  14. I'm such a black sheep when it comes to this book. I didn't enjoy the choppy writing style of the author although I reckon it was done on purpose. I tried really hard to enjoy it, but the hype surrounding the book might have been too much and my expectations were too high.
    I'm glad you loved this one, Tanja! :)

  15. So far I've been seeing a lot of mixed reviews for this one, so I'm not quite sure what to think anymore! I'm glad that you enjoyed it, though. The premise definitely sounds different in a good way, and I'm intrigued about what these people are lying about, and gahh, your review is just so beautiful I can't even! Love how you started your first paragraph. It makes the book sound almost paranormal-ish, though I know it's not, and that just makes me all the more intrigued.

    I love that you were able to connect with the book on such a deep emotional level -- those are the books that leave the most lasting impact, and the ones you don't forget that easily. Most of the time, I just find contemporaries so easy to forget because even though they may have little quirks here and there, their story is mostly the same.

    Again, not sure if I'll give this a try, but I'm super happy that you enjoyed this, Tanja! And as always, brilliant review!

  18. This sounds soooo good! You totally have me convinced to give this one a try! Plus, I LOVE the way you described this book, "That story will also take a day of your time which you'll have to give to it, but in return it'll stay with you forever. It'll give you its eternity." --> PERFECT! I can't wait to see what this is all about, and I definitely can't wait to see why it invokes so many emotions in readers. So glad you enjoyed this, Tanja! Fabulous review! :D

  22. I feel so bad and sorry that I didn't end up loving this book as much as you did, Tanja. But on the plus side, I thoroughly enjoyed the reading process and the writing as it kept me on the edge throughout. Also, this girl, is the most beautiful review I've ever read from you and I love it so much! Also, I get the style of reviewing now that I've read the book. Amazing stuff here, Tanja!
