Pretty Little Liars (Series / Books 1-8)
by: Sara Shepard
Three years ago, Alison disappeared after a slumber party, not to be seen since. Her friends at the elite Pennsylvania school mourned her, but they also breathed secret sighs of relief. Each of them guarded a secret that only Alison had known. Now they have other dirty little secrets, secrets that could sink them in their gossip-hungry world. When each of them begins receiving anonymous emails and text messages, panic, sets in. Are they being betrayed by some one in their circle? Worse yet: Is Alison back? A strong launch for a suspenseful series.
I first learned about Pretty Little Liars on TV, when I was browsing through various channels and then I saw Toby Cavanaugh and Teacher Ezra Fitz on one episode. They were rather cute! A week had passed and my colleague, Anneth, told me that her superfriend had been asking her to watch PLL and she asked me if I knew about the series. Honestly, I’ve only watched 1 episode but it intrigued me.
Together, we Googled more about PLL and I learned that it was based on a book by Sara Shepard. Being a bookworm that I am, I immediately tried looking for the rest of the books on Amazon and went on a book binge. Yay!
And then my addiction to Hannah, Spencer, Emily & Aria had begun. Intriguing plot – 5 friends, the queen bee went missing and then got murdered, suddenly her other 4 friends began receiving anonymous texts, emails and letters from A.. and their lives were never the same again.
I was just dead-tired when I’ve finally finished reading the eight books. Yes, EIGHT – 8!
The Liars have come a long way.. It’s only on Book 8 that I discovered who the real A is, (no, not monA) and who the real murderer was. Did you know that there was always someone getting killed at the end of every book? You would be surprised to know that Toby and Mona should have been dead a looooong time ago. Ha! Although I didn’t expect the twist, I was a little bit disappointed with the real A. But I still loved the whole series.
