Spencer stole her sister's boyfriend. Aria is brokenhearted over her English teacher. Emily likes her new friend Maya . . . as much more than a friend. Hanna's obsession with looking flawless is making her sick. And their most horrible secret yet is so scandalous that the truth would ruin them forever.
And why shouldn't I tell? They deserve to lose it all. With every crumpled note, wicked IM, and vindictive text message I send, I'll be taking these pretty little liars down. Trust me, I've got enough dirt to bury them alive.
If I thought this books series could get farther than the TV series, I was wrong. I really enjoy this series, but I do prefer the TV show.
The thing is that I can’t connect with any of the characters. They all seem too bratty for me. I wanted to smack them so many times! They annoyed me, yet I couldn’t put the book down, because I was curious. It wasn’t that it was captivating, I was simply curious about what would happen.
The thing that really got me freaking out in this book is probably the Toby story line, simply because I adore him in the show. In the series, he now really freaks me out. It’s probably one of the things I wish was the same as it was in the TV show.
Also, I can’t forget the story line between Spencer and Melissa. I don’t know which one of them is the cruelest one. I probably would say that HE is the horrible one. They both are victims of love in a way. Sigh.
I enjoy reading Sara Shepard’s books, simply because they feel like such a great summer read. It is short, fun and easy to read. It probably wouldn’t be the series I would recommend first when people ask me what they should read next, but it is still fun and light. Perfect to read at the beach.
Maybe I would have enjoyed this series a little more if I hadn’t watched the series before, because I honestly really like the TV show.
