    Had this been the sort of poetry I came across in any other random book, I might not have liked One Too Many Lies by L. A. Bowen. I can tend to be pretty picky with my poetry, which shows in the fact that there are very few compilations that I enjoy. Bowen accomplished something impre...

    Thanks to NetGalley for providing this copy in exchange for an honest review. ? This book is for a certain type of reader. I am not that reader. It's written entirely in verse and took sometime to get used to. We are also not given enough time to connect with the characters. As a...

    Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with a review copy. I gave this a 3.5 out of 5 stars. I enjoyed this poetry book, each poem continued the story. Some of the things mentioned in the beginning reminded me of some memories from when I was younger. Paige the main character followe...

    ARC Review: Received for free via Netgalley for an honest review. All opinions are my own. CW: underage drinking, underage smoking, blurry consenting (I lost half my review to this and honestly considered giving up, but I retried) I've read a few West44 books that I really en...

    Copy provided by the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I have a special place in my heart for verse books. I love the creativity and uniqueness on them. I had high hopes for One Too Many Lies but it fell flat. The story was very clique and boring. There was n...

    This novel in verse could have been powerful, but there was not enough story to connect with the main characters. Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to be an early reader in exchange for my fair and honest review. ...

    A well-done first book for L.A. Bowen. This book was written for a much younger demographic than I find myself in these days, but I appreciated the impact of the verse style on the story. It seemed that Paige's refusal to think very deeply about her choices was reflected in the succint...

    Starting the book I was a little confused, as it is only written in verse. I thought that it was only the beginning to have a different start into the story, but after not too long I noticed that the entire book is written in verse. It?s kind of like not rhyming poems telling you a s...

    THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME BY EDELWEISS+ IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW, THANK YOU SO MUCH! OVERALL The idea was there but I felt like the author didn?t go deep enough to make us feel something and feel connected with the characters. If you like character-driven novels in verses...

    This was a wonderful read with important life lessons in it written in a poetic way. I really enjoyed it. ...

    *2.75 Stars* I was provided an ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. One Too Many Lies tells the story of Paige and her friends. They're juniors and soon, they lose themselves into parties and small lies that become much bigger ones after a while. I read this in ...

    One Too Many Lies by L.A. Bowen - 3.5/5 stars ?Best friends forever. (I hope.)? *This book was sent to me by West 44 Books and NetGalley for an honest review, thank you very much!* Overall This isn't a bad book by any means I did enjoy reading it and it has gotten...

    Note: I was sent a free advanced copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This just didn't turn out to be for me. I think that stories written in verse have the opportunity to come out really powerful, and this had the potential, but there wasn't enough tim...

    ONE TOO MANY LIES by L. A. Bowen (out Jan. 1st) is a young adult poetry read. When it came to the writing, I was so amazed! I found myself engrossed by the adolescence stories these 11th grade girls went through, and the book did feel like a lighter, shorter version of We Were Liars. T...

    Overall I didn't mind this story. I liked the free verse poems it reminded me of books such as Cut and Glass. However this one didn't really have much of a story and I wish I connected with the main characters more. The whole thing seemed to just be one scene almost and I felt tha...

    I'm not sure whether it was the sheer stupidity of the protagonist (alcoholic!) or the use of verse to tell this story, but I really didn't feel any compassion for the main character. The book was one of a number of stories in verse I'm studying to see if I want to try to write a story...

    3.5 stars. ONE TOO MANY LIES is a great addition to your young adult collection, especially if you are looking for hi/lo books or books in verse. The story, while not particularly unique or surprising, has an authentic teenage voice and accurately portrays what many teenagers are livin...

    3.5 Quick read, relatable, cautionary. Didn?t realize this was part of a series of this type of verse novel which honestly took some of the ?purity? away for me and therefore lowered the rating. I may come back later and change it due to hoe I feel as I ponder the idea of these i...

    I'm not a fan of poetry. I read this book cause the synopsis and the cover. But it surprises me. I never read a book wrote like a poetry that likes a romance book, but in verses. I really like it. It's short (for me), but well wrote. I thought that it was like the book "One Of Us Is Ly...

    A book in verse that deals with the ups and downs of three 11th grade girls experimenting with adulthood in all the wrong places. Coming to an understanding after experiencing what could have been a tragic conclusion and ending with the knowledge that adulthood can wait. ...

    Lies. I did remember something about this. That somehow conflicates everything surrounding you with your friends and family. ...

    *I received this ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review* A cautionary free-verse tale that I feel like I've already read so many times before. ...

    wasn't expecting this book to be written in verse. Although it was a very quick read, I have no idea what I read. I finished it last night and I have no memory about anything related to this book. ...

    While I did like the story, I felt like it was way too short for the reader to connect to any of the characters. The ending left too much up for question and I was disappointed. ...

    Thanks NetGalley for the review copy in exchange for an honest review! I was initially drawn to this book because it is told in verse, but the reality of Paige?s story led me to finish it in one sitting. I was eager to find out the end of Paige?s story. Does she stand up for her...

    Thanks to NetGalley for providing this copy in exchange for an honest review. ? This book is for a certain type of reader. I am not that reader. It's written entirely in verse and took sometime to get used to. We are also not given enough time to connect with the characters. As a...

    Thank you to Netgalley for providing me with a review copy. I gave this a 3.5 out of 5 stars. I enjoyed this poetry book, each poem continued the story. Some of the things mentioned in the beginning reminded me of some memories from when I was younger. Paige the main character followe...

    This novel in verse could have been powerful, but there was not enough story to connect with the main characters. Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for the opportunity to be an early reader in exchange for my fair and honest review. ...

    A well-done first book for L.A. Bowen. This book was written for a much younger demographic than I find myself in these days, but I appreciated the impact of the verse style on the story. It seemed that Paige's refusal to think very deeply about her choices was reflected in the succint...

    Starting the book I was a little confused, as it is only written in verse. I thought that it was only the beginning to have a different start into the story, but after not too long I noticed that the entire book is written in verse. It?s kind of like not rhyming poems telling you a s...

    ONE TOO MANY LIES by L. A. Bowen (out Jan. 1st) is a young adult poetry read. When it came to the writing, I was so amazed! I found myself engrossed by the adolescence stories these 11th grade girls went through, and the book did feel like a lighter, shorter version of We Were Liars. T...

    Overall I didn't mind this story. I liked the free verse poems it reminded me of books such as Cut and Glass. However this one didn't really have much of a story and I wish I connected with the main characters more. The whole thing seemed to just be one scene almost and I felt tha...

    I'm not sure whether it was the sheer stupidity of the protagonist (alcoholic!) or the use of verse to tell this story, but I really didn't feel any compassion for the main character. The book was one of a number of stories in verse I'm studying to see if I want to try to write a story...

    3.5 Quick read, relatable, cautionary. Didn?t realize this was part of a series of this type of verse novel which honestly took some of the ?purity? away for me and therefore lowered the rating. I may come back later and change it due to hoe I feel as I ponder the idea of these i...

    I'm not a fan of poetry. I read this book cause the synopsis and the cover. But it surprises me. I never read a book wrote like a poetry that likes a romance book, but in verses. I really like it. It's short (for me), but well wrote. I thought that it was like the book "One Of Us Is Ly...

    A book in verse that deals with the ups and downs of three 11th grade girls experimenting with adulthood in all the wrong places. Coming to an understanding after experiencing what could have been a tragic conclusion and ending with the knowledge that adulthood can wait. ...

    3.5 stars. ONE TOO MANY LIES is a great addition to your young adult collection, especially if you are looking for hi/lo books or books in verse. The story, while not particularly unique or surprising, has an authentic teenage voice and accurately portrays what many teenagers are livin...

    3.5 Quick read, relatable, cautionary. Didn?t realize this was part of a series of this type of verse novel which honestly took some of the ?purity? away for me and therefore lowered the rating. I may come back later and change it due to hoe I feel as I ponder the idea of these i...

    I'm not a fan of poetry. I read this book cause the synopsis and the cover. But it surprises me. I never read a book wrote like a poetry that likes a romance book, but in verses. I really like it. It's short (for me), but well wrote. I thought that it was like the book "One Of Us Is Ly...

    A book in verse that deals with the ups and downs of three 11th grade girls experimenting with adulthood in all the wrong places. Coming to an understanding after experiencing what could have been a tragic conclusion and ending with the knowledge that adulthood can wait. ...

    Lies. I did remember something about this. That somehow conflicates everything surrounding you with your friends and family. ...

    Had this been the sort of poetry I came across in any other random book, I might not have liked One Too Many Lies by L. A. Bowen. I can tend to be pretty picky with my poetry, which shows in the fact that there are very few compilations that I enjoy. Bowen accomplished something impre...

    Thanks to NetGalley for providing this copy in exchange for an honest review. ? This book is for a certain type of reader. I am not that reader. It's written entirely in verse and took sometime to get used to. We are also not given enough time to connect with the characters. As a...

    Starting the book I was a little confused, as it is only written in verse. I thought that it was only the beginning to have a different start into the story, but after not too long I noticed that the entire book is written in verse. It?s kind of like not rhyming poems telling you a s...

    Thanks NetGalley for the review copy in exchange for an honest review! I was initially drawn to this book because it is told in verse, but the reality of Paige?s story led me to finish it in one sitting. I was eager to find out the end of Paige?s story. Does she stand up for her...
