I know these pretty little liars better than they know themselves. Heartless. NOBODY BELIEVES A LIAR—EVEN WHEN SHE'S TELLING THE four pretty little liars into the beautiful, popular girls they'd always wanted to be. . Taking place between Unbelievable and Wicked, Pretty Little Secrets is a About Sara; Books. Whether you love your Pretty Little Liars served up on the small screen or in the bestselling books or both (like us!), there's plenty of soapy.

Yup, I will. While I love intricate novels, novels that make you think and challenge your perception of the world, I also love books that are just fun, that don't ask more of you than to tune in and listen. And that is what this book was: If you can get past the language, drugs, alcohol, and sex, then these aren't that bad of books.

I used to see copies of this book everywhere, from public libraries to at school, but I never really had any interest in reading it. It always seemed, from what readers had told me, to be overdramatic and superficial. After reading it myself, I will say that's a bit true, but not really to the point of being a detriment to the book, which is right at home in an era where online bac Heathers meets April Fool's Day in this strange yet intriguing story of secrets, lies and gossip in a modern world.

After reading it myself, I will say that's a bit true, but not really to the point of being a detriment to the book, which is right at home in an era where online backstabbing and guarded rumors are more common than ever. It's a dark story, yet funny at the same time, coming off almost as satirical in a way. Alison, a preppy school student, has gone missing, and the mystery of where she might be has haunted everyone In spite of missing her they're also hoping to bury her memory because of deep secrets only she knows.

When bizarre text messages start popping up, they begin to question the truth about their disappeared friend. Is Alison back - and is she angry with them? How far will she go? It's not a perfect book but I did enjoy its suspense and its creativity. Not afraid to question the dark side of the glamorous popular elite, Pretty Little Liars can sometimes be a strange yet worthwhile book with some likable characters and a decent plot.

Jul 14, Alix rated it liked it Recommends it for: Young Adult Fans. Overall a cute, quick read. I think if we were able I'd give it 3.

I wouldn't say it was absolutely enthralling and sucked me into its plot, or that it left me thinking and that the characters were multi-dimensional and had some depth to them. But nonetheless I did enjoy this book.

Pretty Little Liars is the story of four ex-best friends slowly coming together in the wake of being terrorized by the mysterious "A" after the disappearance of their friend Alison years earlier that effective Overall a cute, quick read. Pretty Little Liars is the story of four ex-best friends slowly coming together in the wake of being terrorized by the mysterious "A" after the disappearance of their friend Alison years earlier that effectively split up their friendships.

All the girls have secrets of their own, that the others with the exception of Ali knew about - Aria is hiding from her mother that her father is cheating, Spencer is in constant competition with her older sister right down to competing for boyfriends , Emily struggles with her sexual orientation and Hanna is body dysmorphic.

Can they uncover who the mysterious "A" is? Can they still hide their secrets from each other and from everybody else? Can they try to salvage their long-damaged friendships with one another? November Nov 28, Kay Iscah rated it it was ok. There's supposed to be 12 in total, but after reading the first one, I don't think I could take 11 more. The TV show has good writers.

I was not impressed by the writing in the book. The TV versions of the characters are generally flawed but likable. The characters in the book are slutty or unpleasant in other ways or one dimensional.

TV Ezra is misguided but lovable, book Ezra is just a jerk with poor self control.

All the hair colors are changed, which is good, because nearly everyone in the book is blonde or some shade of blonde or has blonde highlights or blonde tones There were a lot of references to classic literature and music, which seemed inserted to let us know the characters were better educated than they let on.

Maybe it was Shepard's attempt to get her readers to read more. They were far out weighed by the brand name dropping. I'm not big on designers or labels, but I'm pretty sure everyone is mentioned in the book somewhere. For giggly girls who spend their afternoons flipping through Teen Vogue and Seventeen, it probably connects to them, but I got rather bored with it. Apr 18, Lesleigh rated it it was amazing Shelves: Who would want to read a book with a doll on the cover?

Hanna, Spencer, Aria and Emily were all nobodies, until Allison found them. Together, they built a friendship, but it was all based on secrets. She was their glue; the only thing holding the girls together. Without her, the girls have nothing in common. So what happens without Ali in their lives?

They all go their separate routes. After losing weight, she and Mona have become the best of friends. Emily pays more attention to swimming. She now hangs out with the swim team, and her boyfriend, who just so happens to also be on the swim team.

Aria, the unique one of the group, has just returned from Iceland. Her family moved out of the country for two years.

So what more do they have in common? But who is A? No one knows. The plot is very intriguing and it just keeps the reader wanting more. After reading this book, you are left with an abundance of questions. Pretty Little Liars is a perfect example of a cliffhanger ending, and I loved every minute of it.

Jan 23, Newport Librarians rated it did not like it Shelves: Lots of readers love this series. But to me it read more like a shopping list than a novel: She slid her Tiffany Elsa Peretti heart ring up and down her finger. Spencer's Sidekick vibrated. Emily struggled to operate her Nokia. Ali's parents had gotten it for her at Tiffany's. Some of the issues faced by the four teen girls the "liars" are handled well.

Emily's questions about her sexual identity, Aria's infatuation with a teacher, Spencer's attraction to her older sister's boyfriend--such issues are all eminently worthy of serious fictional consideration.

But those brand names dropped onto every page. View 1 comment. Mar 23, Monica rated it it was amazing. Muy entretenido para una lectura ligera, imperdibles. Jun 27, Eric Boot rated it liked it. Jul 23, Jessica Avery rated it it was amazing.

I was a huge fan of the show Feb 02, Sarah rated it it was amazing Shelves: I own a copy of this book. Nobody knows what happened to her, but now 3 years later, her 4 closest friends start receiving strange messages.

Messages that say things that only Alison would know, messages that are signed simply A. Is Alison really back? Who else could the messages really be from? And if Alison really is back, what does she want? I watched the first season of this as a TV show and really liked it, but never got around to reading the books.

Firstly I liked the writing in this book, and it seemed really similar to the TV show, so whoever did the crossover for the show did a really good job. I kinda felt like I already knew the characters as I had seen the TV show, and I think this actually made me like the book even more than I perhaps would have done, as I could imagine what was going on a lot better.

The characters all seemed really similar to those in the TV show, although I did think that they seemed maybe a little more friendlier in the TV show than in the book. I liked the storyline. I thought the mystery over who A. I have to say that I was quite shocked by what the girls got up to in this story though.

We had shoplifting, drinking, affairs with teachers, and all sorts of other stuff, which was pretty crazy, but at the same time really good! I thought that this book did end in a good place, but there were still so many questions and mysteries unanswered that I really just want to dive into the next one straight away! Overall; a great YA contemporary mystery. View all 6 comments. Ideal para desconectar y distraerte con un misterio interesante. Probablemente lo haga. View all 7 comments. If you hated — just hated — high school, chances are that mean girls like these were the reason why.

The novel begins with an alliance amongst five seventh-grade students who become the mean girls clique of Rosewood Day School, located in a thinly veiled Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

The leader of the pack, Allison DiLaurentis, the meanest of the girls, disappears suddenly, and the clique dissolves.

Emily, Hanna, Aria and Spencer — especially Emily — have terrible secrets that would ruin their lives. After all, who but the five of them knew these secrets? The premise — texts from beyond the grave, so to speak — seemed quite intriguing. With a more likeable group of girls, I know I could well have enjoyed this book. But the eponymous Pretty Little Liars had more in common with the usual cruel villains of a novel than the protagonists.

You know who you are: Just count me out.

General Information

As the years went on i never thought i'd actually read them. I'll admit its taken me SO long to finally pick up this book and separate my TV thoughts from the book, but I'm so glad i picked it up! I was so pleasantly surprised by this book! I really enjoyed it. I loved how each chapter was focused on a different character, that's really unique and so fun, it also allows you not to get bored of one storyline for too long. The only things i didn't like about this book was that the 4 main girls really threw themselves at guys.

I hope this changes as the books go on and the characters develop: Im quite excited to read the second book of the series, and hope i'll want to continue on with the entire extremely long series! PrettyLittleLyingVampires, if you want to follow: Jul 27, Elizabeth Scott rated it really liked it. Okay, this series? Like a drug! I picked the first one up on a whim while at Target more proof that if I go anywhere that sells books, you'll find me picking up one.

I'm totally hooked. I'm hoping to read the rest of the books that are currently out while I'm on vacation. View all 4 comments. Jul 15, Lina rated it it was ok Shelves: So, ever since Pretty Little Liars came out on television people have been filling up my Facebook feed and twitter talking about how much they have to catch this show. Now, I watched the first episode, hated it and allowed the season to fly by without paying it any mind again.

A (Book Character)

This summer however, I started watching the show and while it is still trash, it's ABC Family soap opera entertainment. Benign viewing was possible. Once I brought up my viewing of the show people told me I should read the So, ever since Pretty Little Liars came out on television people have been filling up my Facebook feed and twitter talking about how much they have to catch this show. Once I brought up my viewing of the show people told me I should read the books because the are "better", so out of curiosity I did.

My reaction to the popularity of these books can be summed up as: As horrible as the show is, there is some fun to it. It's funny to see these WASP girls get their due for being the most interchangeable clique of friends on television.

But the book offers absolutely nothing as a medium for this to work. The characters have the same names and overall story lines as their television counterparts, with some improvements all around, but what was semi-interesting and enjoyable there is just dull here. Hearing this girls dealing with their "problems" just made me want to speed through the book.

Especially Aria's story. Aria is dating her high school english teacher and where in the show it was sketchy, they managed to make Aria's character "mature" enough to where you could see why a year old new teacher would fall for her.

Here she's just a whiny little brat who developed a superiority complex in Iceland. Hannah is just whiny and Emily fears no better, but none of them compare to Spencer.

I really loathe this character. She fools around with two of her sister's boyfriend and shows no remorse for it except when she gets caught of course then gets upset when she gets in trouble.

Girl Please. The backdrop of their friend's murder is what the story revolves around, but they do nothing to make me more for the Queen Bee character of Ali. All around this series is dull and the characters are poorly developed. If you are interesting in this series, watch the show instead, minutes once a week is more tolerable than actually wasting eyesight to read Life Styles of the White and Privileged.

This has been on my list for a while, and I'm glad to have finally read it, but I guess it just isn't really my thing. The whole rich-girl-does-bad-things storyline feels a bit overused and the part that actually is the most annoying is that there is no solution at the end of this to the mystery that is meant to be central to the book.

I guess I'm just not the target market. Aug 05, Jen rated it it was amazing Shelves: I give this five stars on account of its sheer unputdownableness. I'm quitting life for the next few day and devoting all my time to reading the rest of this series. I was not a regular watcher of this show, but my sister binged it and I would see episodes now and then so my interest was piqued to get the full story.

Not in this story, at least not in the entirety of book one. Is this book amazing? Is it pretty young minded? Was it still fun to read? Y Confession: Will I continue on with the series? Yes, it's not a binge read type of book for me, but when I need something that I can laugh at AND be appalled at simultaneously, this is definitely in my choices. Favorite quote: Chloe walks in on her dad kissing Emily, but thinks that it's Emily who is wrecking her family her father had previously been cheating.

Hanna's dad runs for senator of Pennsylvania. Hanna steals money from her dad and frames Jeremiah, a mean man who is also working on set. Spencer's mom has begun to date Nicholas Pennythistle, the father of snobby Amelia and her brother Zach, in whom Spencer develops a romantic interest.

When they go out dancing, she kisses him, only to find out Zach is gay. When the Hastings and Pennythistles travel to New York together, Spencer and Zach drunkenly fall asleep in the same bed.

During the night, Spencer had kicked off her clothes because she was hot, leaving her in her blouse and underwear. The next morning Mr. Pennythistle wakes them both up by entering the room. Their indecent clothing and close proximity leads Mr.

Pennythistle to believe that they had slept together and acts violent. Spencer tells him that Zach didn't touch her and that he's gay, hoping to help, but Mr. Pennythistle becomes furious and sends Zach to military school. Zach and Spencer's friendship ends, Zach leaving Spencer with the words "Rot in hell, bitch".

The girls start to get messages from a new "A", and believe it's Ali and that she somehow survived the fall from the building. In the end of the book, the news turns on and a teenage girl's dead body was found floating in the water in Jamaica. They identify this girl as Tabitha Clark from New Jersey. The cops believe her death was a tragic accident - not a murder.

The girls realize they killed an innocent girl.

Pretty Little Liars

Emily accidentally meets Kelsey at a party and is instantly smitten with her. She and Kelsey grow close, much to Spencer's disapproval. After Emily is hurt by Spencer's remarks about her love for Alison, she angrily tells Kelsey that Spencer framed her for the drug possession. Depressed, Kelsey overdoses and attempts to throw herself into the quarry where Mona died, but Emily saves her and Kelsey is sent to the Preserve for treatment.

While visiting Kelsey, the girls realize that Tabitha was also a patient at the Preserve and was the same age as Alison and Courtney. Hanna's father asks her to help with the social media aspect of his campaigning. She meets a boy named Liam, who she falls for, despite knowing he is the son of her father's political opponent. They break up when she learns he has been seeing multiple other girls while dating her, and reconciles with Mike.

After Aria is dumped by Noel, she seeks out comfort in Ezra, in hopes of rekindling their romance. However, things are strained between them, and Aria eventually goes back into a relationship with Noel, after discovering Ezra and Klaudia being intimate.

The Liars attempt to circumvent "A's" threats by coming clean about their secrets, with varied success. Meanwhile, "A" becomes more violent, shoving Emily down a hill at Stockbridge trail. Kelsey cannot be A. Emily and Spencer have their biggest rivalry.

Aria panics when she finds out Noel's father is a drag queen and ends up putting her relationship with Noel at risk when "A" threatens Aria to expose Noel's father photo publicly. On a tip from "A", Hanna begins spying on Mike's new girlfriend, Colleen.

Later she becomes publicly humiliated by "A" when she sends everybody a video of Hanna stalking Colleen, and her desperate ways of getting Mike back.

Gayle is murdered by "A" and it is revealed that she was Tabitha's stepmother. Tabitha's father speaks at Gayle's funeral, and announces that Tabitha's autopsy showed no trace of alcohol, meaning that she was murdered. He thus plans to re-open the investigation into her death, and threatens the killer that he will find him, both Gayle's and Tabitha's killer.

The girls get very nervous about this. After an explosion on the boat, the Liars go off on their own to bury "evidence" of their connection to Tabitha Tabitha's locket, which "A" had planted for Noel to find.

The near-death experience pushes the girls into wanting to confess about killing Tabitha. However, as they make plans to come clean about everything, they discover that they were not responsible for Tabitha's death at all: She had been bludgeoned to death by "A". The Liars finally come to believe that "A" is, in fact, Alison, as Emily reveals that she may have helped Alison escape the burning Poconos house in Wanted.

Suspiciously though Naomi was at Gayle's funeral. Set between Unbelievable and Wicked , the book is told from the point of view of the second "A", Alison DiLaurentis, as she spies on the girls during their Christmas vacation. The novel is divided into a series of four short stories, with each one focusing on the exploits of a specific girl.

Spencer and her family go to Nana Hastings mansion in Florida, and Spencer falls in love with a tennis player named Colin at the country club. Melissa seems to be helping Spencer win Colin's heart, but Colin ends up taking an interest in Melissa. During the trip, Spencer and her mother also run into Mrs. DiLaurentis several times, and Spencer is confused by her mother's strange behavior around Mrs DiLaurentis. Spencer also decides to fight for Colin.

After Colin dumps Melissa to go out with her, Spencer and Melissa discover that Colin's actually 33 years old and also has a wife and child.

Spencer and Melissa decide to team up to get revenge on Colin by putting crushed Viagra in his Aminospa vitamin water right before his important tennis game. In the end, they all have a fun vacation, but Spencer worries that someone has been following her. Melissa and Spencer seem to briefly make up in this, hence the sisters' wary friendship in Wicked.

Emily is asked to go undercover as Santa Claus at the new mall, in order to catch 4 girls who work as elves there, who are suspected of vandalizing Christmas decorations around town, including Emily's mom's baby Jesus ceramic figure.

The 4 girls, who call themselves the "Merry Elves", take a liking to Emily, and it's revealed that one of the girls, Cassie, was close with Alison. Emily accompanies the girls on their biggest prank yet, but Emily's mom uses her phone to track her, and the Merry Elves get caught. Eventually, the elves forgive Emily after she bails them out of jail.

In the end, everyone realizes the true meaning of Christmas, but Emily can't shake off the weird feeling that someone is following her. It is revealed that A is blonde she will later be revealed as Alison as Emily sees a blonde figure run off. Hanna joins a boot camp after thinking she gained too much weight at a holiday party. She develops feelings for the instructor, Vince. She also develops a rival, Dinah, another girl who also likes Vince.

After competing for Vince's affection, she and Dinah become friends after catching Kate making out with the mall's new Santa prior to Emily , something which Hanna also photographs. After agreeing to stop chasing Vince, she celebrates by going out for drinks with Dinah, where Dinah admits she knew Alison.

Hanna goes home drunk, causing her to oversleep. As she arrives at boot camp, she discovers Vince and Dinah kissing, revealing that Dinah only pretended to be friends with Hanna to have Hanna let down her guard.

Hanna flees the scene, devastated, and is confronted by Kate, who, after receiving a tip-off, followed Hanna around, taking unflattering photos of her at boot camp, which she threatens to put on Facebook.

Hanna counterattacks by showing Kate the pictures of her and Santa, causing Kate to back off. Some of what Dinah said may be true such as she knew Alison. But it is likely she made most of it up to get Hanna's trust. Aria goes with her father and Mike to Bear Claw Resort, but leaves to go back home after finding out that Byron invited Meredith along as well.

Upon arriving at home, Aria's surprised to see Halbjorn, an old boyfriend of hers from Iceland. Halbjorn tells her that he's running from the Icelandic police who're after him because he protested against the demolition of a puffin sanctuary. Unfortunately, his travel visa only lasts for a week. Aria proposes the idea of marrying him, and the two head off to Atlantic City to elope. At the hotel, they attend a magic show involving two panthers, which greatly angers Halbjorn, who cares a lot about the environment.

After getting married the following day, which requires Aria to forge her mother's signature and lie about her age, they go to the place where the panthers are kept. After convincing Halbjorn not to release the panthers, they go back to the hotel. The next morning, Aria wakes up to find Halbjorn gone and his clothes missing as well. On the lobby's TV, Aria sees that Halbjorn ended up releasing the panthers anyway. Aria goes to the courthouse and confesses to lying about her age and forging her mother's signature, making the marriage null and void.

Upon returning to Rosewood, she is joined by Mike and Byron, who know nothing about her marriage. As they watch TV, it shows that Halbjorn has been caught, and it also reveals that he's done these sorts of things in the past, including trying to blow up a demolition office.

Aria's satisfied with breaking up with him, but is paranoid about someone following her. In Wicked , it's briefly stated that Aria and Meredith did converse about the baby.

The book ends with a sign-off from the new "A," as always who says that the Liars' lives are going to get a lot worse. All of which comes true It's the end of seventh grade, and "Alison DiLaurentis" and her friends are the alpha girls of Rosewood Day.

But "Ali's" hiding a dark secret of her own, something so huge it would destroy everything if it ever got out. She's desperate to keep the perfect life she's worked so hard to build, but in Rosewood deadly secrets have deadly consequences. Set in the weeks leading up to "Ali's" murder, this special Pretty Little Liars tale is told by the prettiest little liar of all: For the first time ever, we see how the mystery began—and how "Alison DiLaurentis'" life ended.

This book is titled Ali's Pretty Little Lies but it's actually about her twin sister, Courtney, who pretended to be Alison because she didn't want to go to a psych ward.

And if Alison really is back, what does she want?

They identify this girl as Tabitha Clark from New Jersey. And I know everything. He told her they hated each other, but Spencer tells her about "Courtney's" statements that she and Ali shared everything together. Overall a cute, quick read.

Alison mysteriously disappears during a sleepover with the girls in the summer before 8th grade.
