Pretty Little Liars Review:

Pretty Little Liars

This is the story of five friends, Alison, Aria, Emily, Hanna & Spencer, these friends are bound by a secret, a secret so terrible, that could potentially change their lives forever.

They are different in so many ways but at the same time all of them just want to fit, be the girl everybody wants to hang out with. They accomplish that by being friends with Alison DiLaurentis, the most popular girl in Rosewood. Things start to get difficult the night Alison vanishes without a trace, she kept them together and now they start drifting apart from each other.

Years later, Hanna is no longer the girl with weight problems, she transformed into the “It Girl”, she has the body and the style. Aria returns to Rosewood from Iceland, with a new daring and audacious attitude with the will to take control of her new self. Emily is the sporty girl, an all-star swimmer and perfect daughter and Spencer, the pretty typical overachiever.

Their lives continue to be awesome until one day each girl starts receiving threatening messages from a mysterious sender who’s signature is “A”. They must face their past and their worst fears in order to find out who is this mysterious character.

At first I got frustrated with the situations they got themselves into, but, as I advanced into the book, these girls started to learn lessons and the consequences of their acts. It managed to keep me interested and I wasn’t able to put it down. It’s a nice mystery book and that is the main reason I liked this book.

Although this book is intended to be a young adult novel, on my personal point of view, I wouldn’t recommend it to all. Many of the events, circumstances, actions or topics can be too complicated for some young readers, if you are mature enough or with some parenting advice this book is full of suspense and mystery.



  1. I dunno if I'd read that. Mystery, sure, I like that kind of stuff, but maybe I'll wait until I'm, say, 16. :)

  2. I love that book!!! ( and I'm 12 :P)

  3. I started this series a while ago and thought it was pretty good! I love the mystery aspect, and how each book is more addicting than the previous one.

  8. Just stopped by from the blog hop and I'm glad I got the chance to check out your review and to start following...I'm adding the book to my TBR list, thanks for the rec!


  9. hey, thanks for following me! Right back atcha. I think my daughter has read these books. I agree that there are some YA fiction out there that is more appropriate for "older" people. For sure you need to know your kids. I have to admit, I really enjoy that genre. :)

  10. I'm now following you, I'm from the blog hop. :) Here is my url: http://teenbibliophile.blogspot.com/

    I read Pretty Little Liars a year or two ago. They were good books. I still have to catch up and read the last three books in the series. I'm excited to see how good the tv show will be.

  11. I remember coming across these books long back. I wondered if I would like them then. I was hesitant to read it, but after reading your review, I might give it a try, if I get this book. Good review!

  12. I thought this book was okay. The writing was definitely accessible to a younger audience, but the actual plot seemed more mature. It's a fun read, but not very sophisticated or memorable. I'd love to find out who A is, though! Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday :-)


Thank you for taking the time to comment. It makes my day and I read every one of them. ♥
