    1. "Three may keep a secret, if two of them are dead." -Benjamin Franklin. The first book in the series, Pretty Little Liars, is about five best friends - Emily, Aria, Hanna, Spencer and Alison. Alison is the girl everyone loves, but secretly hates because they’re envious. She is what you could call the secret keeper of the clique, the one that holds the deepest and darkest secrets of each of the girls that nobody else knows and that they wouldn't dare share with another person. During a sleepove [...]

    2. (I think it’s extra hilarious to visualize Chris Lilley’s Ja’mie King character in the context of this book, especially with all of the snarky things she says, because it totally applies to PLL)AlisonShe’s the queen bee who knows how to make the girls feel like they belong, but digs at them to keep them insecure and put them in their place so they’ll never challenge her. Ali is Regina George minus Tina Fey’s writing, in that she’s a toxic manipulator but there isn’t the underlyin [...]

    3. This series feels like it'll be a total guilty pleasure. It really reminded me of some of the R.L. Stine and Christopher Pike books that I read as a teen, and that's definitely a good thing. It's not literary genius but it's fun and easy to read. I started watching the TV show based on this series and I wanted to find out more because the episodes weren't coming out fast enough for me. I didn't feel like reading and watching the same series was redundant, it felt more like they complimented each [...]

    4. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/A week or so ago one of my new friends on asked what was taking me so long to finish Pretty Little Liars. Truth is, I finished it in one day waaaaaaaaaaaay long ago, but my reaction was . . . I never got around to writing a review. Want a sneak peak into the world of Mitchell and Kelly and how to tell if they didn’t like a book????Yep. Not a note, not a highlight, not a comment, nada. This time the problem stems from one issue and one issue alone . . [...]

    5. Okay, I'm hooked. I started watching the TV show when it first came out, and liked it well enough. So I decided to see how the book series would compare. This book follows a former group of friends three years after their leader, Alison, went missing. Now they are getting mysterious text messages from a person known only as "A". "A" knows secrets only Alison knew and trust me, these girls have plenty of them. Despite being only 16, these girls have more skeletons in their closets than the cast o [...]

    6. Before I being, I would like to admit that by choosing to read this book of my own free will, without compulsion or obligation, I made a rod for my own back and have no right to complain about any suffering that followed. Nonetheless, I am going to do so:-The previous holder of my “most unappealing first sentence of a book series” award was the awe-inspiringly stupid Charlaine Harris, on grounds of grammar alone, for Dead Until Dark’s “I’d been waiting for the vampire for years when he [...]

    7. I'm ashamed to admit I've read this book, and the only reason I'm copping to it is because I need it for my reading challenge. Pretty Little Liars is not the type of book I usually read, but after a friend admitted the show was one of her guilty pleasures, I decided to check out the book. Unfortunately, I got no pleasure from reading this, only guilt and frustration. Pretty Little Liars tells the story of Aria, Spencer, Emily, and Hanna, four girls whose best friend, Alison, disappears one night [...]

    8. Pretty Little Liars has been my favorite book I have read so far. It is filled with drama, suspense and mystery, but it also brings together friendship and bravery. Four best friends, Aria, Hanna, Emily and Spencer, are separated by the death of their friend Alison DeLaurentis, as she has mysteriously disappeared. They each shared secrets with Alison and one very important one that nobody could find out: the Jenna secret. All four friends soon drifted apart, but were brought back together when t [...]

    9. “I'm still here, b!tches. And I know everything."Once upon a time, five girls were friends: Alison, the ringleader, Aria, Emily, Hanna, and Spencer. Then one day, Alison just up and disappears.Three years later, the girls begin to receive threatening texts, IMs, and notes about their secrets, past and present. Aria is flirting with the English Teacher; Emily is hanging out more with the new neighbor girl, Hanna has a dirty way of keeping thin, and Spencer is out for her perfect sister's boyfri [...]

    10. I've been a long-time fan of the tv show so I thought I'd give this book series a try.I don't know if it was because I've seen all those things happening in the tv series, in a much more lengthening and stretching way but this book lacked the thrill the tv show sometimes gives me. I was no surprised at all by anything happening in the book and I expected that there wouldn't be anything that would blow my mind away but I was disappointed by the fact that the characters in the book are a far-cry f [...]

    11. Overall a cute, quick read. I think (if we were able) I'd give it 3.5 stars.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 [...]

    12. I've really enjoyed the TV series, and I'm anxious to know who A is (DON'T TELL ME). So I thought I'd try reading the Pretty Little Liars book series, by Sara Shepard. 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 dimension [...]

    13. Who would want to read a book with a doll on the cover? I mean, isn’t that for like middle graders? WRONG. Pretty Little Liars might start off with the characters in their middle grade years, but before long, they’ve already bloomed into full fledged high school students with personalities of their own. Hanna, Spencer, Aria and Emily were all nobodies, until Allison found them. Together, they built a friendship, but it was all based on secrets. The only secret the girls didn’t realize was [...]

    14. Hmmmm. Lots of readers love this series. But to me it read more like a shopping list than a novel: "He rubbed his fingers over the cuff of a hung-up pair of Joseph trousers. She slid her Tiffany Elsa Peretti heart ring up and down her finger . . . Spencer's Sidekick vibrated . . . Emily struggled to operate her Nokia." Even when a body is identified by a ring, it's not just any ring: "She remembered Ali's white-gold initialed ring. Ali's parents had gotten it for her at Tiffany's . . ." As a mem [...]

    15. That was pretty good*raising eyebrows*Sometimes a little unrealistic and overdramatic, but on the whole it was just the book I needed during a test week: light, funny and short :) 3.5 stars

    16. I was a huge fan of the showat being said there are differences in the book. the characters looking different is the main one. it was a quick read and i really enjoyed it

    17. Pretty Little Liars by Sara ShepardI absolutely LOVE the Pretty Little Liars TV show, and when that show first started i wasn't a crazy reader, but i bought the first 8 books of this series. 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 differe [...]

    18. 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. or twelve.) and bam! I'm totally hooked. I'm hoping to read the rest of the books that are currently out while I'm on vacation.

    19. It wouldn’t be fair for me to rate this book. I’m not only not the correct target demographic — clearly tweens and teens — but I fall into the reviled substrata of the novel: earnest smart girl. I don’t know how much I would have liked the book at 15, much less at 55. 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 Da [...]

    20. RESEÑA EN LEEEÑAELAMuy juvenil, muy yankee, bastante pobre escrito pero aún así con gancho, entretenido y ligero. Ideal para desconectar y distraerte con un misterio interesante. A mí me spoilearon quién es A en la serie, pero de todas formas me gusta mucho el concepto y lo disfruto *procuren no spoilearme más nada, por fiiiiiiis, que vi solo dos temporadas y media más o menos. Y algún día la quiero retomar!*Si miran la serie, este libro entero es el episodio piloto. Eso me re intriga, [...]

    21. 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. 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 [...]

    22. WOW! 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.

    23. I enjoyed this a lot, except for the looks of the girls it related to the show quite a lot! I'm definitely continuing this series.

    24. This book has officially been read by me 1.1 times. For further explanation, please keep reading.Pretty Little Liars has always been one of those series I was in doubt about everyone liking. I mean, seriously, the covers were garbage. Dolls, bright colors, fancy cursive script . . . I almost puked every time I walked by the extra-special PLL stand in the Barnes and Noble store.And then when the media tie-in covers were released . . . blech. They were even worse than the first ones. I made sure I [...]

    25. As I wandered through the hallowed high school halls, with a target on my back, being judged and ignored in equal parts, feeling like a space alien with three heads, my shoes squeaking on the hard linoleum, scared that I would be stuffed in a locker before third period and left for three more, I tried to picture a happier place and time, possibly being stuffed in a wooden coffin and buried six feet under, or chained to a basement wall by my ankles. No, high school wasn’t that bad, but it could [...]

    26. (Source: I own a copy of this book.)3 years ago, Alison went missing. 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. [...]

    27. Omygod. This is seriously amazing! I can't believe that I put off this book for 2 years thinking that it wouldn't be worth it to read the series! I know right, I'm too late for this hype. Lol! But seriously, the whole ride with this book has offered me so much fun and at the same time was very frightening to read. I can feel these goosebumps whenever "A" contacts them. It's just so creepy. It will really make you itch to know who the f* is A!!! Oh my, I wonder what will I do if ever I got a pysc [...]

    28. I loved this book of course, however I started reading the series while I was on season 4 of the show so it kind of ruined it, and I also enjoyed Sara's The Lying Game books more. I still really enjoyed this book and will continue with the series

    29. "Hell is other people" - You got that right.This scores high on my guilty pleasures rank. I'll admit, the cover didn't really do much for me, I recently tried to read Cum Laude and I expected this to be more of the same, but no!This is interesting, creepy, weird, entertaining and I can't wait to find out more. 5 rich bitch friends, one of them disappears. After that the other 4 grew apart and years later, suddenly everybody starts getting weird messages from somebody who goes by 'A.' They all th [...]

    30. After watching the first season of Pretty Little Liars I decided it was finally time to start this series and I wasn't dissapointed. It took me a little while to separate the book from the show in my head since some of the things that happen are different, and the characters' appearances are described differently to how they look in the show! But once I got past that I really enjoyed it. Its an entertaining read just based on the characters lives, but its also a mystery too about who 'A' is and [...]
