REVIEW: The Last Time I Lied by Riley Sager ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5
I’m the first to admit that I’m pretty hard to please when it comes to a thriller. Even if I don’t see a twist coming, they rarely surprise me because I tend to think the worst of people and expect every character to secretly be awful – even the narrator in most books.
This one, however, kept me guessing until the end in the best way possible. The narrator Emma was extremely relatable and vulnerable throughout the story. I loved how honest she was with herself as she went on this sort of trip of self discovery as she went back to the summer camp that hosted the worst summer of her life.
Told through flashbacks and current day scenarios, the story unfolded at a steady pace with new twists every time I felt myself starting to wonder what was going to happen next. I will absolutely read Riley Sager again – this one pulled me out of a reading slump and made me appreciate good writing all over again.
