One Of Us Is Lying by Karen McManus
One of Us Is Lying - Karen M. McManus

I loved this book!!! So you take a ride on a mystery train through Whodunnitville. At times you think you know who the real culprit is, and in the end it turned out I was right, but not before a few twists and turns along the way. I loved these four characters who were under investigation. Nate, the bad boy who turns out to not be so bad. Addy, the girl who earns her place as one of my favorites in the story. Cooper, the jock you love instead of hate. Then Bronwyn. The smartest girl around. Now I want more!! I'm off to purchase an ecopy of One Of Us Is Next.

One of Us is Lying - audiobook
One of Us Is Lying - Karen M. McManus


Twisty-turny breakfast-club-ish story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I actually figured out what was going on towards the end (but maybe I was supposed to figure it out). I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will read more by this author.

ONE OF US IS LYING by Karen M. McManus
One of Us Is Lying - Karen M. McManus
Five students end up in detention and one dies.  The other four are under suspicion for murder.  The dead student wrote an on-line gossip column that seems to be true.  And each of the suspects has secrets he/she wants hidden.  Who is guilty?
I enjoyed this story.  It is a fast read but I was guessing the whole time who was guilty.  I was wrong.  The students are good.  So are their secrets.  The adults get so wrapped up in protecting their child that they aren't real strong to find out the truth only what gets their teen out of trouble.  I liked the support system these teens gave each other as well as the caring that developed between them.  I look forward to book 2 in the series.

One of Us is Next
One of Us Is Next - Karen M. McManus

What a ridiculous ass book. 


Okay. I am going to say something more substantial. I have eaten flavorless oatmeal that had more to it than this book. Character development is non-existent. You get to see characters from the previous book briefly, but we don't get to get into their heads. McManus decides to bring in a new crop of people for the most part that I didn't care about. 

I saw the twist coming as soon as a certain scene happened. And then I saw the next twist after that. Nothing was a shock and the why behind this was not even believable.


I had a huge problem with her last book, "Two Can Keep a Secret" because she has young adults acting in ways that other teens would scoff at. The whole truth and dare game made zero sense. But how did no adults even hear about it? Seriously? Considering social media today no one talked about it for this to get discussed? 

The jumping back and forth between 5 or I think 6 characters did not help matters either. There is zero tension going on. There was some tension in the first book because people were accusing teens of murdering their own. The murder in this book happens I think more than halfway through and I ended up loathing the characters so who cared in the end? Not me. 


The romance between all of the leads were lame and I didn't care about who ended up with who even a little bit. I think McManus was trying for some epic romance up there with Logan and Veronica with two of the characters and I was over it.

Good collection of essays that form a memoir
I'm Telling the Truth but I'm Lying - Bassey Ikpi

FYI - the kindle edition of this book is on sale.


Ikpi was part of the Def Poetry Jam, but this is a collection of essays  that function as a memoir.  If you or some one you know is dealing with mental illness, this is a very good read.
