Actual rating: 3.5/5 stars

This book was much better than the last two, it was thrilling, and kept me wondering what was going to happen next (even though I basically knew, because of the TV show)

The plot that this particular instalment is entered around was one of my favourite episodes, so that was really enjoyable!

I also feel like towards the end of this book, the characters started to become less annoying! Hallelujah, haha.

Going to take a break from this series now, and start back up again l

I have decided not to read anymore of these until the last one is published. I just want to know "who done it" without having to read all of the HS drama. I really liked this series at first, but once I got to the third book, all of the drama got old and started to annoy me. Of course, I am WAY past my teenage years; I'm sure that has something to do with it. ;)

"There's a lot you can't tell about people, looking in from the outside"

After the explosive events of the last book, a LOT is happening. Emily has a one way ticket to Iowa. Aria is still homeless, waiting in the hospital with her ex-friend, Hanna, as Hanna struggles in a coma. And Spencer is shaken by what she did to her sister. The girls just wait; will Hanna remember who "A" is? Will they ever be free of "A"'s grip?

I came roaring into this one straight off Book 3. I just had to find out what h

I don't know if I saw it coming. Who A. is I mean. I guess I did and I guess I didn't. Oh yeah, I'm such a wiz with words, I just blow your minds, don't I. (Hey, it's Monday morning, go easy on me)

I added a lot of drama in my reactions while I was reading this, since I think these books bring out my inner queen.

I'm very curious about what will happen next. Like deadly curious. *grins*

Silly little story I want to add: I was reading this on the train and some girl was trying to explain drugs to so

Hanna is still in a coma in the beginning of the book and when she wakes up she can't remember anything about her accident or remember who "A" is. Her best friend ends up being someone bad and her mom tells her that she got a job in another sate and leaves Hanna the option to move with her, or move in with her dad and his fiance and her evil stepsister.
Aria who is my favorite in the series is dumped by Sean when he finds out she was with her teacher, Ezra. Ezra ends up getting fired and moving a

Another great sequel and the conclusion to the first arc of this story. I really enjoyed it but I also think that it's a great place to stop with the series.

Book four in the Pretty Little Liars series

Mona is dead. Wow. I had a suspicion she might be lying about the notes, but never did I think she'd run Hanna over because she "knew too much".

And the turns get curvier and the twists get heavier.

I can't stand Hanna. No matter how much I try to like her, she's always aggravating. She tries to be perfect, but no one is. Spencer could tell her a bit about that. And Emily drives me nuts. She's always crying and expecting everyone to hurt her. Even Maya.

Okay, WOW. This book literally had my heart pounding out of my chest so hard I considered putting it down... then realized I, of course, totally couldn't. Needless to say, all that adrenaline is probably going to keep me up for hours tonight. I know I wasn't as wild about the third book, but this one was incredible. Every time you think you've figured out what's going on, you learn something else and have to completely reevaluate. And while the last book was sort of all details of the entropy of ...more

I thought I knew what to expect; Unbelievable is the fourth book in Shepard’s Pretty Little Liars series, following Pretty Little Liars, Flawless, and Perfect. Shepard has a talent for making the series flow together seamlessly. Shepard has talent, period. While each book so far has read like a chapter in the overall series, I keep finding myself satisfied at the end. Don’t mistake me—I still want LOTS more, the who dunnit, the whys, and the hows… But I’ve read some series where their versions o ...more

For the amount of secrets revealed in this installment, it is easily the most boring of the series so far. How is that possible? I don't know.

The entire book felt like one long rehash of what has already happened. I know that's needed in series, most do it either within a few chapters or lightly sprinkled through out the whole book. But this book...it was the entire thing. Until the last 10 chapters or so, the whole thing was "Previously on Supernatural--" if you know what I mean.

So. Meh. Disapp

Loads of fun, but the long-anticipated conclusion didn't contain the mind-bending twist I was waiting for after so many little twists and red herrings and reveals in the long buildup.

I think this one might be my favorite in the series so far. It just seemed more suspenseful and "action packed" than the other ones. Despite the many annoyances, I couldn't put this book down.

As for the identity of A and Ali's (supposed) killer, I would like to be all smart and say I knew who they were all along, but I honestly didn't. There were enough red herrings along the way that had me guessing the whole way.

But as for the girls, I just can't get over their life styles. I find the books

Unbelievable picks up where Perfect left off: moments after Hanna's accident. While her friends and family pace the hospital's waiting room to learn Hanna's fate, "A" continues to threaten each girl. Emily is sent to live with her cousins after her parents learn she kissed the new girl, Maya. Little does Emily (or her parents) know that her cousins aren't so innocent and have issues of their own. Meanwhile, Aria is trying to cope with her parents' imminent divorce. Just recently broken up with h ...more

I think it's hard to rate individual books in a series, especially a long one like PLL, but I honestly believe that each book is great and the only one I'd say maybe wasn't a full 5 stars like I rated it, was probaby book 1, just cuz it was a little bit boring.

But this book is amazing! It's actually starting to get a little deeper and the characters are stating to have more depth to them as well.

I like the fact that with each book, I keep trying to figure out which girl is my favorite and I re

Four girls; Hanna, Spencer, Aria and Emily are still being haunted by an unknown person named "A". In the Pretty Little Liars series, by Sarah Shepard each of these characters have a deep dark secret that they cannot let out. Spencer is rewarded for plagorizing her sisters senior year essay, because she was too lazy to write her own. Emily is sent to a strict aunts farm because of the secret that her mom didn't like. Aria is kept from her forbidden love, as"A" threats to tell her parents and it ...more

Sometimes when I would have trouble in school or maybe with sports I would have to stay strong, and keep on going through with it. Just like in the book, everyone has trouble with things, but you just have to keep on going through with it and keep your head up during tough times. In Unbelievable written by Sara Shepard, the four main characters, Spencer, Aria, Hanna, and Emily all face the same problems and are really struggling, just like what happens to people in real life. This problem that h ...more

This book is truly breathtaking. In fact all of the pretty little liars books really capture me. These books are perfect if you are in the mood for a murder mystery and you are tired of having all the boys as the hero and/or villan or victim. These books are perfect for any girl who likes to be under a good book spell. They're quick reads if you love them and even though my busy schedule gives barely any time to read, I still found a way to fit in these great books. These books aren't what you t ...more

Sara Shepard...obrigada por me viciares em PLL! Estás perdoada pelo mauzinho The Lying Game.


Doces e Vingativas é bombástico! E é sem dúvida o meu livro favorito pois é finalmente neste livro que a identidade de 'A' é revelada! A sério, adrenalina é que não falta no livro, onde muitos segredos são revelados e muitas confusões são resolvidas. Mas vamos por partes.

Quanto à identidade da 'A' não é quem eu pensava que era, tinha quase a certeza que era Melissa mas pelos vistos não. Já no final do 3º

I wasn't a huge fan of this edition. After the last addition to the series - Perfect - I thought the books were getting better but yeah, they're obviously not if this is an indication. There wasn't anything definitively wrong with this but it was nothing special. In fact, it was pretty dull. There was no climax and it was just too boring for me to get into.

I also have to add that some of the MCs are really getting on my nerves. I'm not a fan of Hanna, and Emily's constant mood swings a

OK. It wasn't so surprising because I suspected everybody of being -A.
Like all the other books it was a fast enjoyable read and I really can't wait to read the next book.Hope it will not get boring because there are a lot of books in this series ugh
I will give it 4.5 stars because it did not shock me like I was expecting.
