Last month I had a big, decade-flipping birthday. My awesome husband threw me a surprise party and wonderful friends filled my evening with laughter and lots of love. And lots of sweet bookish gifts. One gave me a book I'd been wanting for a long time. Another gave me her favorite book. And a couple of others gave me gift cards to Barnes & Noble.
Yesterday, out in the breezy sunshine on my front porch, I finished one of my gift card books.
We Were Liars by E. Lockhart.
Its mystery is a large part of its charm, so I won't give anything away. But the writing itself is so good. As soon as I finished it, I wanted to read it again. So just get yourself a copy, don't read any reviews or blurbs, and plop yourself down outside for a good read.
The Mt. Dew is optional, but for better or worse, I highly recommend it.
