Book Review: We Were Liars - e. lockhart

"Welcome to the beautiful Sinclair family.  No one is a criminal. No one is an addict. No one is a failure."
Welcome to my book review. This book has broken me. This book has wrecked me.  This book has destroyed me.


"Be normal, now, she said. Right now, she said.  Because you are. Because you can be.  Don't cause a scene, she told me. Breathe and sit up. I did what she asked.  She was all I had left."
Ah, this book. This book.  I can't get over it. The love. The twist.  The ending.  The tragedy. The tragedy. 

Blurb:
"We are liars We are beautiful and privileged We are cracked and broken A tale of love and romance A tale of tragedy
Which are lies? Which is truth? You decide"

Is this "a tale of love and romance"? Most definitely.  But this book is so much more than thoughtless words, young love and secrets.  This book is about a king, who had three beautiful daughters.  Those daughters grew up and married. They had children.  The king built three beautiful houses, one fo…

WizardUpdate #3: Guest post offer!

I created a personal blog. It's not anything fancy, just something where I like to express my thoughts. It's also a great way to get to know more about this mysterious RecapWizard ;) I decided I would share it with you on here, as I already have posted links on Google+ and Twitter. Click here to visit Questions From A Teenager! So far I have written 4 posts (of which i am proud of), but I definitely plan on this being a long-term project. Which leads me to my next point and the point of this update:

Guest posts. When I first started this blog, I didn't really have a lot of experience when it came to writing. You can see that in my very first posts (embarrassingly bad writing style) and I do believe that I have made considerable progress. In my opinion, I still don't really have that much experience. That's why I started looking for opportunities to guest post. I am the co-writer of a fan page for the NBC show Grimm and have since then written 2 guest posts.  I can r…

WizardUpdate #2: I created a personal blog!

As you can already read from the title, this is a small update concerning what I've been up to recently - I created a blog! It's called Questions from a teenager and I am proud to say that I am really proud of this little space I created for myself. On this blog (RecapWizard), I don't share my thoughts on topics other that movies/books/TV-shows. I felt like I needed a place where I could just write about whatever popped into my head. That's why I created my new personal blog and I couldn't be happier about the result. 


As some of you may notice, this blog is not with blogspot, but with wordpress. I decided to try something new and I really enjoy the layout options more on wordpress. On the screenshot above you also see a small sneak peek of some of the posts I have written ;) I love the design of my blog right now - it's simple, not too much.
I am actually debating if I should create a new RecapWizard on wordpress as I am not very convinced of the layout options …
