Why Should I Trust You?


Hello Lovelies!!

It's my finals week, so I'm going to make this one quick. 

This week's Top Ten Tuesday (by the Broke and the Bookish) allows us to fill in the blank! So I will be bringing you...

The Top Ten Books with Characters Who are Unreliable Narrators (AKA BIG OL' LIARS).

I love unreliable narrators because you never know if they're actually being unreliable or not. Occasionally they tell the truth, but occasionally they lie. So here we go...

1. Nothing by Janne Teller
2. Liar by Justine Larbalestier
3. Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman
4. Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta
5. Don't Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout
6. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
7. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
8. The Princess Bride by William Goldman
9. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
10. I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson

Many of these books feature the unreliable characters as side characters and not main characters. Plus I don't want to ruin the surprise if you dive in to read these!! Who's the biggest liar??

What about you lovelies? What books do you love with unreliable narrators? Let me know in the comments!!

  1. I love books with unreliable narrators-they make things so interesting. Poe did a lot of that well (in his short stories). Another one would be "The Rook," by Daniel O'Malley- since the MC can't even figure out who SHE is!

    1. Oooh! That sounds interesting! It reminds me a little bit of the TV show Dollhouse from the description. I don't read very many adult books, but I might have to pick that one up!!

  2. Oh I LOVE this idea! I agree, I am quite fond of that kind of book too, unreliable narrators are exciting! I don't even want to tell you the one that I am thinking of because it would almost ruin some AMAZING twists. So I won't, in case you haven't read it! But I have another one! In Liars, Inc, you never know who to trust, the main character, the side characters, everyone is suspect! Great list!

    1. Haha, the one problem with my topic! It's a bit spoiler-based in its existence! I have heard such good things about Liars, Inc. I'm definitely going to have to pick up a copy!
