I am looking for a phrase to describe a "collection of false exaggerations", something that can fit well in the following line:
I am really shocked to see this, it seems that everything you told me before was just a collection of false exaggerations.
I don't think "collection of false exaggerations" is a real phrase. "Bag of lies" is a similar phrase but not with the same meaning.
I am looking for a phrase that can directly replace mine in the above sentence or otherwise any other way to say the above sentence while keeping the feelings same. The feelings here being that my expectations were set too high due to a lot of exaggerated information fed to me.
