Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney



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?


Here’s the thing about hyped books: some people read it and rave, the reviews spread like wildfire and you get your hopes up for some false promise of something out of this world only to be inevitably let down. I get it, it’s happened to me too. But please, reader, *try* to go into this one with an open mind and no preconceived notions and just enjoy the ride. Because it is quite a ride to enjoy.

So this isn’t really a review but more of a recommendation😆 read it, enjoy it, and let me know what you think after you have here👇

5 stars!

This was a Traveling Sisters group read and I’m so very thankful to have been able to discuss this one with the ladies, it always enhances the experience and this one was no different.


  1. Great review. I really liked this book. The ending was wide open for a sequel, don’t you think???

      There’s a new one coming out next year called Sometimes I Kill! Not sure yet if it’s a sequel or a new storyline, the short blurb doesn’t say much, but I can’t wait either way!

        Same! I am hoping that it’s a sequel to Sometimes I Lie, because the ending sets it up for a sequel. But you are right, in any case, it’s going to be GOOD!
