"I’ve been going through a big reading slump but this book reminded me why I love reading. The plot unraveling to what was the ending, plus the incredible detail that went into describing scenes and characters were all reasons why Magic for Liars is so good!! I also appreciated the queer characters very much :-)❤️"
