Books in the Series: Pretty Little Liars, Flawless, Perfect, Unbelievable
Summary from GoodReads:
Among the mega mansions and perfectly manicured hedges of Rosewood, Pennsylvania, everyone has something to hide—especially four very pretty little liars.
High school juniors Spencer, Hanna, Aria, and Emily have been keeping secrets ever since their best friend, Alison DiLaurentis, disappeared three years ago. But when the girls begin receiving threatening notes from someone named “A,” their secrets—the big ones, the little ones, even the long-buried ones—no longer seem so safe.
Unravel the Pretty Little Liars’ wildest mysteries in this special box set. But remember, nothing is as it seems in Rosewood . .
I was really excited to get these books when I used my giftcard from Christmas. I read The Lying Game by Sara Shepard as an ARC and I really enjoyed it. I have also been watching the show on television and I got hooked. Shepard keeps you wanting more by always ending the book with an air of mystery. I have fallen in love with these characters too. I can't decide which one is my favorite. I think it's a tie between Aria and Emily. I love that Aria is this free spirit who doesn't really care what people think of her. She is also always worried about her family. I feel for Emily because she is going through an identity crisis and is always worried about how she'll be seen. The books differ quite a bit from the series. The first couple of episodes mirrored the books but then they slowly diverged. Now that I know who A is (don't worry I won't reveal), I'm curious to see if it will be the same in the show. I have the rest of the series as well for my Kindle and I can't wait to devour them. I definitely ate these books up quickly; I read all 4 of them in like 3 days. Overall I give this series (thus far) 4.5 stars out of 5.
