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 ♡.
