Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for the MUCH ANTICIPATED – The lies you told by Harriet Tyce.
I have been itching to read it since I first saw the cover and read the blurb…
Can you tell the truth from the lies?
Sadie loves her daughter and will do anything to keep her safe.
She can’t tell her why they had to leave home so quickly – or why Robin’s father won’t be coming with them to London.
She can’t tell her why she hates being back in her dead mother’s house, with its ivy-covered walls and its poisonous memories.
And she can’t tell her the truth about the school Robin’s set to start at – a school that doesn’t welcome newcomers.
Sadie just wants to get their lives back on track.
But even lies with the best intentions can have deadly consequences…
I have yet to read her first book – Blood orange (although I own it) BUT it’s hard to have missed all the glowing reviews for it. And so far I have heard that The lies you told is even better…
Sadly. Very sadly. I haven’t managed to finish it – yet! But that isn’t through any fault of the book, the book is absolutely great so far. August just seems to be ONE of those unhelpful months and my reading mojo has left the building.
The writing is great, the pacing feels spot on to me and I LOVE the short and snappy chapters that make me want to read just one more, then another, then one more…you get the point, right?!?! And Harriet Tyce has done an amazing job at creating characters I care about. It’s all very well written and I am hooked. I plan on finishing it in the next couple of days.
Clever plot. Great writing and memorable characters – now I just need some time and a big cup of tea to finish reading!
Here are some great reviews from other bloggers on the blog tour so far –
Have you read Blood Orange? Are you excited for Harriet Tyce’s latest book?
I received a copy of The lies you told by Harriet Tyce from the publisher, which was all arranged by the blog tour organiser – Thank you!
