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.

  1. This is the second one in the series right?! I'm reading the first one right now and I totally agree with you! The girls are all so awful, but you can't stop reading!

  2. I feel the same way! I love the tv show too, they are so different to me that it might as well be two different things completely. Have you watched/read The Lying Game? I'm enjoying that too!
