The one thing they seem to have in common: horrible parents.

Jory: Older brother, Jory, has been pushed into the background of the 'Princess Liv' show his whole life. Jory suffers from Moebius Syndrome which displa ...more
If you're interested in reading this one, please do yourself a favor and don't read the synopsis close to when you're picking this up. Go in as blind as possible. The comparisons that the publisher has made to other books in the description here tip the reader off to what the big twist will be (if you've read said books), and while it didn't take away all the enjoyment in reading this one, I still wished I had been more out of the loop going ...more

I have to be honest, this book did not work for me. I don't know why I even continued to read it knowing I wasn't into it at all. I guess I needed to see what REALLY happened. Unfortunately, I felt more confused about the book AFTER reading the ending than I did when I started it. This book will work for some readers as evidenced by other reviews it just wasn't my cup of tea. I will tell you why below but it wil ...more
I liked the dynamic between Liv and Rory. I didn’t really like either one of them, but their relationship plus their toxic parents really intrigued me. This is quite a character driven story, all about the two of them.
Plot wise...I’m not sure what to say. It was a thrilling ...more
Told in alternating POV - an important concept in the story - What We Buried is a look at two siblings who grew up in the same household yet experience things completely differently thanks to nature and nurture. Pay attention to the details and read this book twice. You won't be able to turn the pages fast enough on this one.
(the comp to OOUL originally lead me to no ...more
Special thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
...I don't know what I just read. I try to keep this blog as PG as possible, but I'm going to have to make a small excuse for this review. This book was a total mindfuck. For the most part, I think I enjoyed it.
I love books/movies that make you think hard. Inception is one of my favorite movies, simply because it makes you think. What ...more

I received an ecopy of this through netgalley; however, all opinions are my own.
*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review*

Liv was a child beauty pageant queen, paraded around the circuit by their mother. Jory has a partial facial paralysis and has always felt that he is in Princess Liv's shadow ...more
Read it - you’ll find yourself wanting to read it a second time.
Dual perspective novels that feature siblings will always be my kryptonite. Seriously. There's nothing I love more than seeing a story play out from two different perspectives when they're siblings. But besides the fact that I adored the way What We Buried was written, I loved how Boorman constantly keeps us on our toes to figure out what's really happening. What We Buried was ...more
BLURB~“Told from the split viewpoints of Liv and Jory, Kate A. Boorman's What We Buried is a psychological thrill ride that deftly explores how memories can lie, how time can bend, and how reconciling the truth can be a matter of life or death.“Do you ever just want to be believed?”Siblings Liv and Jory Brewer have grown up resenting each another. Liv—former pageant queen and reality TV star—was groomed for a life in the spotlight, while her older brother, Jory, b ...more
