Sometimes I Lie – By Alice Feeney

Goodreads Synopsis: My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me:
1. I’m in a coma.
2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore.
3. Sometimes I lie.

Amber wakes up in a hospital. She can’t move. She can’t speak. She can’t open her eyes. She can hear everyone around her, but they have no idea. Amber doesn’t remember what happened, but she has a suspicion her husband had something to do with it. Alternating between her paralyzed present, the week before her accident, and a series of childhood diaries from twenty years ago, this brilliant psychological thriller asks: Is something really a lie if you believe it’s the truth?

Find on Goodreads and Amazon.

It’s not often that I stop a book because I’m disgusted with it, but this book is one of them.

Starting off Sometimes I Lie is not bad, its just boring. Amber is in the hospital and she’s in a coma, but she can hear what’s going on around her.  What happened to her is a mystery, but of course she’s having problems with her husband and her family.  The story feels predictable as hell.  The story goes between the past and the present, which isn’t my favorite writing style.   And the characters are all the same. Amber is nothing new. Her crumbling marriage is nothing new.  And the twist at the end didn’t matter at all to me.

Here’s where I stopped reading. This book needs a trigger warning for an exceptionally graphic rape scene. It made me sick to my stomach.

My ending opinion is don’t bother with this book. I know it has a lot of rave reviews, but my opinion is there’s no need to read yet another book about a woman who thinks she’s gone insane and involves abuse. I gave it two stars on Goodreads.
