Dear reader I just finished reading “The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett” by Chelsea Sedoti. I picked up this book in the Nook store on my tablet because the synopsis of the book seemed really interesting. My personal review of the book is as follows:
This book is one of the strangest books I’ve read in a long time, “Hawthorne” is (in my personal opinion) one of the strangest characters that I’ve ever read about, the way she looked at the world/her (what felt to me to be) obsession with “Lizzy”/her life.
I could only read so many pages before I had to put the book down for a bit(and read something else) because being “in Hawthorne’s mind” was too much for me personally to handle.
I did empathize with “Hawthorne’s” desire for there to be something “more” to life than the everyday.
I felt kind of happy about the ending of the book(for Hawthorne’s sake), I really do wish that somethings could’ve been explained about “Lizzie” just to give her a bit of depth(Yes I understand that the story is told from Hawthorne’s point of view however I still feel like some things could have been discovered by/or told to Hawthorne afterwards).
it left me in a weird(and hard to explain) head space after reading it. Overall I personally rate this book a 3 and a half out of 10. Happy reading dear reader ?. Please like and share this review if you like it doing so helps me to get considered by NetGalley and other places for future books ♡.
