The Hundred Lies of Lizzie LovettThe Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett by Chelsea Sedoti
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book featured a MC-Hawthorne- that was cliche stereotypical(weirdo) high schooler, who couldn't wait to get out of her hometown and school. She has a strange obsession with Lizzie Lovett, a girl for who she talked to for a total of like 4 minutes, and then later felt like she knew her and had a connection to her.

Every chapter was about missing Lizzie Lovett, and the author could have used Hawthorne's authentic unique voice to reach maximum potential by introducing other plot points in this book. I honestly didn't care for any of these characters or what they were going through, and that really disappointed me.

The plot and premise was moving along painfully slow and I was getting more bored and bored when nothing was happening except complicated drama in Hawthorne's life. I would say that the first 100 pages were fillers with no substances, because nothing other than day-to-day things happened. I never felt like I shipped the characters together in their relationship, so I felt like I wasn't "on board" with that aspect of the romance.

I didn't find any redemption in what has happened by the ending, and I didn't understand why the character was convinced of some supernatural elements that clearly didn't exist. This book was highly anticipated for me, but sadly it didn't live up to my standards and I would not reccomend it.



Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for providing an e-ARC copy of this in exchange for my honest review.
