Review: Pretty Little Liars

Title: Pretty Little Liars
Author: Sara Shephard
Series: Pretty Little Liars
Publisher: HarperCollins
Published: 2006

Spencer covets her sister's boyfriend. Aria's fantasizing about her English teacher. Emily's crushing on the new girl at school. Hanna uses some ugly tricks to stay beautiful. But they've all kept an even bigger secret since their friend Alison vanished. How do I know? Because I know everything about the bad girls they were, the naughty girls they are, and all the dirty secrets they've kept. And guess what? I'm Telling.
                                                                                                                                          - A

Overall I liked this book. The prologue shows the girls seventh grade year. The year their friend Alison goes missing. It leaves you with a cliff hanger making you want more and more. The coming chapters introduce the main characters Spencer, Aria, Emily, and Hanna and how they go through their daily lives until they all start receiving mysterious emails, texts, and notes signed -A. For anyone interested in books like The Clique I definitely recommend the Pretty Little Liars series.

Something about the series that was a downfall though was the plot-line, which seemed a little too predictable. Though I liked how there was one last note from the mysterious - A left at the end of the book leaving you with a cliffhanger so you wanted to lead right into the next.
And I definitely do!

Flawless is the next in the Pretty Little Liars series and I'm excited to get my hands on it!

Overall I rate Pretty Little Liars 4 STARS.

More reviews coming soon,
