Review: Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart

Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart is a book that  is inspired by The Talented Mr. Ripley. I loved Lockhart’s  We Were Liars, and The Talented Mr. Ripley is such an interesting story that I haven’t seen retold before. However, as I was reading, I noticed that there isn’t actually much difference between the two stories. If you are familiar with The Talented Mr. Ripley, I wouldn’t recommend Genuine Fraud, as the plot won’t come as much of a shock. Continue reading

Review: We Were Liars

We Were Liars by E. Lockhart is a book like none I have reviewed before! There are so many elements to this book that cannot be discussed in a review because there are many spoilers to be had in doing so. This book is filled with plot twists and mystery and if any little detail is mentioned about it, the whole book will be revealed. Continue reading
