some glorious flashes of brilliance but they were quickly displaced in my memory by innumerable issues The author does create a creepy atmosphere and at points, the writing is engaging, at others it s barely coherent The suspense and thrills which usually come with the identification, search and capture of the antagonist are sorely lacking as the bad guy is clear and very obvious from the first chapter onwards I was hoping for some shock or surprise, but sadly it didn t happen.As time went on it descended into complete chaos and ended up being rambling and tough to get through I never warmed to any of the characters as they felt one dimensional and rather shallow and needed their personalities developing in order to get the readers attention This may be enjoyable to Teens and Young Adults and those looking for a light, quick read that is a bit of fun than serious reading, but, unfortunately, it fell flat for me and was deeply disappointing I am curious as to what the author will do next and wouldn t be averse to checking it out Hoping it ll be readable and exciting than this was.Many thanks to Simon Schuster UK Children s for an ARC flag 13 likesLike see review View 1 comment

could totally see this up there with them It was really easy to imagine this cinematically It s quite tense as you can imagine, taking place in one evening the pace is fast going and doesn t let up from the minute they all arrive at the mansion Each character is easily identifiable and as each reveals their innermost secrets you learn to either like them or hate them I liked the fact that you pretty much know who did it from the halfway point even though the it s not confirmed until nearer the end There s a sub story around abuse both from a parent child point of view and that of romantic relationships It s also a story of friendship and love Oh and a bonus point for Gavin who demanded a bathroom break when fleeing a demented killer because no one does that in films and I completely would Overall I loved this and as the last book I m reviewing in 2018 it s great to end it with a 5 star book flag 12 likesLike see review Oct 08, 2018 Liz Barnsley rated it it was ok 2.5 stars.Yes

creepy moments to give the author due, porcelain dolls and suchlike but those flashes of brilliance got lost amongst the idiotic and very uninteresting characters It s not horrible But in comparison with other tales of this nature it falls very flat.Also if you are going to rip off Edward Cullen you should probably try and improve on the original but Shane was, if it s even possible, even paler A

writing had me hooked, it was creepy and suspenseful and though it s not as horror tastic as a Stephen King novel, I will never be looking at porcelain dolls the same way again no it s not a Chucky thing, and I will not give any other comments on this because I don t want to spoil it There were moments that I struggled to tear my eyes away from the kindle screen afraid that I d lose the thrill and have to build it up again Given the bulk of the story focuses on just the one night in the present, I think the characters were fleshed out really well Definitely enough to get an idea of who they are, their values, and their growth They were mature and had solid back stories I m one of those readers who likes to guess the whodunnit ending, usually satisfied when I get it and love it when I don

here at all Who killed him While the story is not realistic, I mean who really can pull together a murder mansion house at such a young age, it is intriguing Like the television shows it mirrors, This Lie Will Kill You is a teen drama you can t help but read even if it s a bit cliche You know what s coming at every turn, the shock factor isn t quite there, but you want to know what happens next anyway I think it works as a teen novel and while it lacks some of the smarter suspense of adult mysteries, I still enjoyed it and can see younger readers getting caught up in it Characters Gavin, Juniper, and Brett were like classic teen movie actors for me Their awkwardness relatable, their stories predictable, and their part in the book vital for making it likable Ruby and Parker are difficult characters, each so self centered Parker is obviously the bad guy, and I don t mean the bad boy everyone likes, but truly just a bad guy, he s pinpointed as the evil mastermind early on, which allowed for some surprising twists The mysterious dinner they are invited to does follow a fun murder dinner style plot and the five play into it perfectly.The novel starts with a beautiful, literary description of the night that set the events in motion, but from there it becomes quite simple There are holes in the characters stories and while the timeline moves forward at the right pacing it doesn t have nearly the suspense and surprise one would expect My biggest complaint, one I think will be noticed by every reader, was the repetition in this novel The effect some of the words could ve had, like porcelain, felt cheap by the end Character driven with an interesting, if not formula, plot, This Lie Will Kill You was a quick, fun escape read for me I allowed myself to be pulled into the murder mystery evening and enjoyed the various ideas Chelsea Pitcher borrowed from similar movies, television shows, and games There s a lot going on in this book, from various character connections to the unveiling of the true events of that fateful night, but it lends itself to the story While predictable, it is still engaging and I think readers who enjoy teen readers and thriller reads will find this one a winnerC provided flag 8 likesLike see review Nov 21, 2018 Danielle Life of a Literary Nerd rated it liked it Shelves arcs, mystery thriller They climbed into the

I loved the idea of former friends all isolated and trying to survive, but they were pretty one dimensional with clear roles to play so the story was predictable Also Ruby s first interactions with her love interests were shown via flashback and they were some of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen with my own eyes I also found the ending of the story to be rushed and unsatisfying There

I were in a similar situation, I would totally die I mean, I m the comic relief I d be the second person bumped off hell, FIRST if all my Asian friends decided to stay home that evening Plus, I can t even really run and power walking away from a killer just isn t going to get you very far even if it does prevent me from contracting a debilitating case of the tripsies That being said, I just can t say no to a cheesy, teenybopper revenge thriller.Yeah I need to learn to say no Wait, where are my manners No, thank you This Lie Will Kill You is not good in fact it s borderline terrible And it really is hard for me to write those words because I so wanted it to be good Maybe it should have been a glaring red flag to me when the synopsis reads that it s Clue meets Riverdale Really I love both of those things Where do I sign up Except this book is neither of those things Even if you stripped Clue of it s brilliant mystery and memorable characters, This Lie Will Kill You wouldn t even come close.Let s begin with the writing I realize that I read an uncorrected proof, however, it kind of reads like a Dick and Jane picture book with a serious comma problem We re talking very basic words and sentences You could always tell when the author got really excited about certain words or phrases, though, because they would be repeated extensively throughout the book a la Stephanie Meyer and chagrin Variations of the word heart are used 81 times 82 if you include the dedication It is mostly descriptions about Ruby s heart how her heart feels, what her heart is made of and, my personal favorite, hopes that her heart would soften to red Whatever the fuck that means Cheshire grin is used 3 times which is definitely 3 times too many There are various other examples of word phrasing over usage but I ve grown bored.Pitcher also does something which I wish authors would avoid and that is mentioning other contemporary works within their writing Hear me out If you mention Harry Potter and your book is kind of crap then guess what I m just going to be thinking about how I d rather be reading Harry Potter Please, just STOP.Given the type of novel that This Lie Will Kill You is, if the writing were its only issue it could pass with a 2.5 5 star review for me A solid meh It s fine It served its purpose Unfortunately, the rest of the book is kind of a mess as well.Let s begin with the characters We have a group of teenagers with ridiculous names Ruby Valentine, Gavin Moon, Juniper Torres, Brett Carmichael, Parker Addison, Shane Ferrick, Brianna Ferrick and while their names are unique, they re basically The Breakfast Club.Ruby Valentine the most beautiful girl in school, dates the rich guy, has an abusive fatherJuniper Torres good girl who is academically inclined.Gavin Moon the outsider.Brett Carmichael jock, the muscle.Parker Addison controlling rich guyShane Ferrick mysterious newcomer, he s basically Edward from Twilight.Anyway, they are invited to an eerie mansion for a Murder Mystery Party where the winner will receive a 50,000 scholarship So of course they all go because money Very basic plot, which isn t necessarily a complete dealbreaker For me, however, the creep factor just wasn t there and any incidents that were meant to be scary just sort of fell flat I was promised the intrigue of Clue and I got an episode of Pretty Little Liars during the writer s strike Ultimately, This Lie Will Kill You is lacking any real suspense Most of the plot consists of flashbacks to an incident that happened the previous summer sound familiar It s not a real deep mystery either and you basically know where the book is headed from the beginning It s too bad the ride along the way just isn t enjoyable enough to be worth your time flag 7 likesLike

happened last year, they are desperate to get a leg up in the world But someone else is desperate for answers.Looking at past reviews, I can see that I m a rarity for enjoying this book, each reader to their own, but I thought the prose was engaging and mysterious, sucking me in to the dark void where five teenagers need to face the consequences of their past All three of them had slipped into an alternate reality, where the world was beautiful and terrifying, and you had to see both sides in order to survive I thought that the characters were written beautifully and had that three dimensional element of feeling real to me I loved Ruby I thought she was so enthralling as a character, she was by far my favourite Ruby needed to be loved Maybe it was wrong, maybe she was supposed to love herself, the rest of the world be damned, but she couldn t stop waiting to be welcomed into the universe Like I said, it s a very familiar theme, but if it s done well, then it s done well, and I will

revenge and determined to find out the truth of what happened that night, and they will do whatever is necessary to know the entire story from start to finish.Each of the characters were so strongly developed I adored each persons chapters and being able to get into their brain to see exactly how they were feeling about the events that transpired at last year s party, as well as the events at the revenge party Ruby s chapters were by far my favourite though She was such a complex and interesting character with an insane life No joke, I have no idea how that girl is still standing.The writing was easily my favourite part of the book Like I just mentioned, the characters were written beautifully Not only that, the descriptions threw you into both the past and the present so clearly I could picture everything as it was happening, and my god, if I never even have to think of a porcelain doll ever again, it ll be too soon.I was constantly on the edge of my seat wanting to know what was going to happen While it was pretty obvious from the prologue who organized the revenge party, I was engaged all the way through wanting to know every single detail of both the past and present.Overall, I would highly suggest picking up this book While, yes, it is obvious who the party is organized by, I think the book is so thrilling and mysterious that it s easy to look past that

skepticism, and maybe your brain in general and just going with the flow As soon as you start questioning all the plot holes and loose ends become visible If you can just go with it, it s a fun, fast paced thriller and a real page turner I kept feeling like something was strange about the writing style Something was a bit off and I couldn t quite place my finger on what It was very disjointed, full of sentence fragments, manic in tone and felt somehow jagged It was definitely not beautifully written I do think that this was done on purpose to fit the frantic pace and cartoon like brutality of the story It was uncomfortable and suspenseful and made it hard to stop reading I have to say that I figured out the villain s early on as it was pretty obvious who was responsible for the death and who was controlling the party There s also a big reveal about another unsolved case and that also held zero surprise I m not sure what the deal was with making the characters dress in different colours but the bad characters could not have been clearer if they were wearing black hats The ending was moderately disappointing There was less resolution than I wanted and it felt like to story just fell apart I think this will appeal to younger readers who want to be entertained for a few hours and don t want to have to think very much It is the equivalent of a teen movie like I Know What You Did Last Summer without the originality It was a reasonably entertaining way to spend a few hours but not a book that I would read again, or am even likely to think about again Thank you to Simon

really, REALLY didn t like it Like, gave up with less than 100 pages left.This book is about a group of friends that a year after a tragedy are trying to put their lives back to normal and forget what happened Then a mysterious invitation shows up in their mailboxes inviting them to a party with an incentive, a 50,000 scholarship to whoever wins When the friends show up to the mystery party, they slowly realize everyone s part in the tragedy a year prior and someone is getting their revenge.I was so excited to read this book, I was thinking part Clue and part Pretty Little Liars I know the others compare it to Riverdale but I never jumped on that wagon I hated the writing style and I caught myself numerous times rewriting certain parts of the book, that s never good if I do that I couldn t get into the story and the way it bounced around between all the characters drove me insane.Also, some of the ways the author would have Ruby think and talk completely stumped me The way her and Shane talked to each other honestly made me think of a modern day Romeo and Juliet and not in a good way.Another sad thing is I LOVE horror movies, that s pretty much the only genre of movies that I watch Reading the synopsis of this book I got total I Know What You Did Last Summer vibes and I was super stoked for that Which yes, the dolls were creepy but I m one of those people that think porcelain dolls are freaky, have my whole life But that was literally the only scary part of this whole book in my opinion I just expected a lot from this.I have never read anything by Chelsea Pitcher

caused the murder and the one who is taking revenge on behalf of the victim It, however, has a well written character driven story that takes us through the relationships between the five teens, the circumstances leading up to the murder and how they were maneuvered by the ex boyfriend from hell into going just that one step too far Told through each of the teens in third person perspective, we get to see the pieces of terrible things, and how they are being covered up As a bad guy, Parker is extremely infuriating To be honest, if Brianna wouldn t have even waited till he entered the mansion to strangle him with the rope he brought in, that too would have been fine He is manipulative, stalkery, and obsessed with Ruby, his ex who he is abusive towards Ruby, for her part, is still not over the death of Shane, the boy who died and who she loved she is also a survivor of abuse from her father and is trying to escape from Parker s attempts to get her back Juniper, Ruby s ex best friend, is a smart character who senses how shady it is, but comes to protect Ruby Brett, meanwhile, comes with a guilty conscience already and a troubled heart As they get going with the game, the story spills out, and yes, it is pretty much what you expect it to be What I didn t expect it to be was so dramatic now I see why it has been likened to Riverdale in its synopis some of the characters are so extra The writing is okay, but the characters do seem exaggerated at times even the dialogue at times felt too cheesy and metaphorical for a bunch of teens to talk in The ending is also stretched out to give insight into the motives and backstory of a character.In short, this is a mystery plot that is driven by the characters, than the twists and motive Is it diverse One of the characters is gay another is Asian.

good person I think we re supposed to feel sorry for Shane, but I spent most of my time when he was on the page wondering if he was up to no good because he seemed to fart butterflies and float through being fairy perfect Wtf Let us get to know him When we finally did see him through Ruby s eyes he was so much better, but it didn t explain his initial magnetism, and that just seriously put me off him Who goes up to a girl at school and dances with her Seriously He was obviously a good guy and didn t deserve any of the things that happened but I just didn t care Then there s the way the characters and the writer exploit Brianna and her mental problems NOT OKAY The whole thing is a half decent thriller, but the plot and writing just weren t strong enough Honestly I nearly stopped on the first page where there is the line When cars make friends with mortals Wtf Plus I spotted all the twists, which is rare for me The only one I didn t is the very last one, but the main one I knew

sounds really creepy The porcelain dolls, portraits with people missing, rooms with the character s dreams Definitely the perfect setting for this type of game I wouldn t want to be there alone at night But that s when things got disappointing for me The plot feels all over the place As readers we switch between past and present and it s not always clear when this switch happens I had times while reading where I didn t figure out that it was the past until near the end of the chapter This also made it really hard for me to connect with a character.All of the characters have some type of history that has changed them in some way While this is perfectly normal, I mean no one is perfect It just felt a bit too much that all of the characters had some heartbreaking issues.Unfortunately I knew who was behind everything before the halfway mark That s when the book kind of changes and as a reader you are just waiting for characters to confess their sins to see if they can escape I really wish had been done with this dinner party That could ve made this book exciting I really see the potential in this book and where the author wanted to take it She is really creative with this dinner

Thank you NetGalley and Simon Schuster Canada for this ARC.This is exactly what I needed A fantastic YA mystery with hints of the board game Clue sprinkled throughout the night.I blew through this, it was so addictive The story is nothing new, but the writing had me turning page after page Something I will recommend to anyone looking for an easy, quick read with some surprises thrown in.
