Four pretty little liars' charmed lives have turned into living nightmares.

Emily's been shipped off to Iowa to live with her überconservative cousins. Aria's boyfriend is behind bars—because of her. Spencer's afraid she was involved in Ali's murder. But Hanna's fate is far worse: She's clinging to life in the hospital because she knew too much.

If these girls don't s

Buddy read with Jessica.

So does my Pretty Little Liars marathon end with the 4th book in the series. Feel no sadness, shed no tears because we will be back next year with the remaining 12 books (and most likely with 2 companion novels, making it a total 14 books). Yes, we are so gonna do this 16 (18) book series.

Unbelievable was the action packed, drama filled guilty pleasure as the last three books I have read and enjoyed. We got a lot of background story, a lot of suspense, but most important

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

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

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

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

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 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

“Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the naughtiest of them all?”

So let's see... what am I going to say?!
This series is huge and there are a LOT of books (sequels of PLL) and I don't really want to review them all because I hate to review books of series especially when the series is as long as this one... so, maybe this is going to be the last book

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.
Morgan F
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

5 Stars.
Like all the other "Pretty Little Liars" books.

My Thoughts on "Unbelievable":
*I know Mona was no good.
I never liked her, even from book one,
she just seemed too fake.
*I don't like Maya.
I never did. And I think something
might be up with her exit from Emily.
But who knows?
*Awwww, I love Lucas.
He's adorable.
*Did I mention I don't like Mona?
*I never liked Melissa either.
She seems too, i don't know, ANNOYING!
*I really doubt Ian killed "Ali".
(more on that later)
I mean come on?
*For some reason

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

Like all of the Pretty Little Liars books, Unbelievable was, well, unbelievable! I especially loved this book because it was kind of like the grand finale of the first four books. It had a amazing suspense and Sara Shepard constantly kept me guessing as to who A was and who Alison's killer was. She has a way, sort of like Poe, of twisting the story so that the main characters are the ones to blame. I also apreciate Sara's diversity and her knowledge of all things fashion. SO much happened in th ...more

Unbelievable is an amazing title for this book. The secrets keep coming out about the girls in Rosewood. But the secrets are nothing compared to Hanna being hospitalized after being intentionally hit by an SUV when she figured out who A was. As she starts to recover, she tries to remember what happened to her and who A really is. The girls get another helper as they try to figure out who the killer is and who A is, or if they are the same people. Miss Mona also starts getting text messages, but ...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

***Spoilers for the first three books in the series***

This is definitely a guilty pleasure series. These books are fun to read (they remind me so much of the Gossip Girl books), but perhaps not the most memorable, as I read the first three books of this series a few months ago and found that I was having trouble trying to remember what had happened in the previous books when I picked up this fourth one. I also think I just might have not been in the right mood for this book because it took me s

Wow that was pretty cray cray! Even though I kind of know what happens, it's still so much fun to read these books! Sara Shepard is a really good writer! :)
Elizabeth Scott
Okay, SO did not see so many of the things that happened here, esp who A was--I totally thought it was someone else and was completely surprised. And now I have to keep reading to find out who the new A is...

The first four Pretty Little Liars books have been really enjoyable and *a lot* of fun to read!
Sarah
I hate these books but I can't stand not knowing what happens. I bought and read this one, hoping it would be the last, but it looks like there's still more for me to read. Argh!
Jessica
Man, these books are addictive!

After finishing this book, I can say with certainty that I will be reading this whole (incredibly long) series. I've said it a million times now, but I jut freaking love all the scandal, drama, lies, and secrets in these books. I don't keep up with celebrity gossip (usually) and thankfully my personal life is mostly drama-free, so this series has become my regular source for drama.

Unbelievable moved a little bit more slowly than some of the other books, but it was
