If I Lie by Corrine Jackson

Buy the book at


Book summary: 

A powerful debut novel about the gray space between truth and perception.

Quinn’s done the unthinkable: she kissed a guy who is not Carey, her boyfriend. And she got caught. Being branded a cheater would be bad enough, but Quinn is deemed a traitor, and shunned by all of her friends. Because Carey’s not just any guy—he’s serving in Afghanistan and revered by everyone in their small, military town.

Quinn could clear her name, but that would mean revealing secrets that she’s vowed to keep—secrets that aren’t hers to share. And when Carey goes MIA, Quinn must decide how far she’ll go to protect her boyfriend…and her promise.

      Please let me say this once more - oh you sweet little books. I mean I really like these. They're perfect for reading before you go to sleep or when you want to just shut the world around you. If I Lie did all that.

     For starters I was really surprised when I saw that this was a debut novel, cause by writing I though well this woman has a lot of stories behind her. I was wrong as usual, kidding, but really I was surprised. So we're in the small town in which most of the young boys go to the army. Quinn's boyfriend is one of them. He has gone to the Afghanistan and Quinn should wait for her darling to come back. But once she did something unforgivable. She cheated on her boyfriend and she has been caught.  Because Sometimes a moment defines you, defines how people see you for the rest of your life. Now Quinn must fix everything. Which is a hard thing to do considering that she knows something about Carey no one knows. Things get even worse when Carey goes MIA. Now Quinn is torn between explaining herself or keeping the promise.

      I honestly have seen some reviews for this book and they weren't so great. I truly understand that but there is a thing - I'm sucker for these sweet little stories. Yeah me reviewing books is not always great thing cause it doesn't take much for me to like the book. So if you are like me then you'll pick up this book, if not then suit yourself.

Until the next time,

  1. Oh I adored this book too Tanja, I had a couple of issues with it, but it was a beautiful debut novel from Jackson. So glad you loved it too! Great review! :)

  2. Oh, my thoughts exactly! The writing in this book was so pretty of didn't seem like the work of a debut author! And you're right (as usual!), the book kept me up as well. Such a lovely review, Tanja! ♥

  3. Thank you girls! :) I'm happy you like it too! :) ♥ ♥

  4. I liked, but did not love this book. It was sweet and beautifully written, but much too dramatic for my taste and I didn't connect with the characters. Still, I'm pleased you gave it five stars Tanja! btw - you are reading The Hallowed Ones! I loved it, and I hope you do too. *insert stalk mode* ;)

  5. I love sweet books :) sometimes I don't mind to much drama! :) Yes I'm almost done ;)

  6. Gosh, I am very much anticipating this book, since many people seemed to enjoy it (at least the ones I know lol ;p). But, I can't wait to see how it turns out! And yeah I'm a sucker for these types of stories so I HAVE to pick it up! LOL ;p Great review, Tanja! Glad you enjoyed this!

  7. Yeah I'm sucker for them too! What can we do :) Hope you'll get it soon ;)

  8. I think this is a book that deserves to be read by many people and get a good vibe out to people of what the human condition can do to someone. I think this just shows how cruel people can be in the grand scheme of things. We don't want to know the full truth, we just want to blame and hurt people when we choose to do things that are expected of us. This world needs to start being more caring or it's just going to fall apart pretty fast.
