Poop my pants I love these darn books! Forget my previous statement, I have sent my soul (and common sense) to Sara Shepard and purposefully forgot to include a return address. Ruthless here we come, baby!

Another one?
Honestly, I'm not quite sure how Shepard could continue the series. In the last novel, Wanted it was set and ready to end; all the secrets from the beginning of the series were revealed and explained, it was the right time to finish. I mean, what more could she possi...more
Another one? Okay then. I will read it, because i am such a fan and i love the series, but really? It was a perfect ending to the series. Left us wondering, but still closed the mystery of Ali's death. Gah. Here is a summary of the new book that i found on Tumblr:

"It’s been a year since the torturous notes from A stopped and the mystery of Alison DiLaurentis’s disappearance was finally put to rest. Now seniors in high school, Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily are older, but they’re not any wiser....more
This book was not necessary. It had ended in "Wanted" and sealed the series well enough. I honestly think Shepard wrote this because of the TV show's success. ABC Family probably needed another season hence the book. I'll still read the next one but it's just getting old.

Okay, finally finished. I'm kind of sick of these books now. It just seems that everything is repeating itself. Some plots in the book just seemed too...ridiculous or convenient.Hopefully, Sara Shepard changes it up a bit in Ruthless, the next book.

BEFORE READING: Wanted ended off as a final salute to the pretty little liars that we all couldn't get enough of.
The series was pretty dang addicting, though i'm not very sure about this new 4-book addition.
Basically, the Pretty Little Liars show di...more

Why am I going to do this to myself AGAIN???

It's like watching a train wreck in slow-motion. You know it's going to crash and burn in a dragged-out way, but you just can't turn away.

I hate you Shepard.

**Update** Spoilers Alert**

Shepard never ceases to amaze me. Just when you think a series can't be butchered to pieces anymore, Twisted comes along. Take the same stupid storyline, add a couple of new characters, and voila, Shepard has an excuse to drag out this series for another 8 books (yep, t...more

loved it! so excited for the next book!
I really don't care what anyone says; I unabashedly love this series. I eagerly await every installment and devour the things within hours. Sara Shepard is one of the best (if not the best) YA author I've ever had the pleasure of reading, and she creates some of the most twisted and engaging plots I've ever seen.

I'll be honest, when I first discovered Twisted was actually going to be a novel (I'm pretty sure that Wanted was definitely supposed to be the last in the series), I felt feelings of bo...more

Wow. This book really just grabbed the series and shook it up. I am impressed, and eagerly waiting the next book 'Ruthless'.
In this book, Hanna, Aria, Emily, and Spencer went on vacation to Jamaica. They came home, and don't talk. Why? They did something awful. Something as bad as The Jenna Thing- even worse.
But they continue to live their lives, thinking Ali is dead and A is gone.
Hanna helps her father in his political career to become the Senator, while trying to fulfill her own goals of being...more

Another one?? Oh, Sara Shepard, you love to shock us don't you? Well, bring on 'Twisted', because I'll keep reading 'em as long as you keep writing 'em!

To be honest, I was sad with the way the series 'ended'. I'm one of those people who has to know what happens exactly. I hate endings where it could go either way, and to me it seems like the author is cheating. (I know, I know. That's just my opinion. I still love Sara Shepard, she's amazing.)

So the idea of 'Twisted' is very exciting. I can't wa...more

Recommends it for: Fans of the previous books

Okay, I can't exactly say I'm not enthralled the Pretty Little Liars series was expanded, but at the same time, I can't say I'm all that thrilled about it, either. This go-round of the Pretty Little Liars series is a lot different than the first eight books -- I can't exactly figure out why, but it seems really different. Like all the other Pretty Little Liars books, the ending is extremely thrilling and not exactly satisfying, and like all the other Pretty Little Liars books, the characters hav...more
What the HELL? Why is there going to be another book?


As you can see from my initial reaction back in December when this book was announced, I was pissed. The 8th Liars book ended PERFECTLY. Yes it was a little open-ended, but it was a great ending. (Not to mention that it said all over that book "this is the final book!") I was so annoyed they were going to make not just one, but 4 more books out of this series. Someone got a little greedy from the success of the TV show I guess!

Despite a...more

Twisted was better then I expected, which considering what I wrote before I read it is a good thing.

Even though some parts are too damn predictable I love this series. I also love Sara Shepard and how she turns me into a lunatic wondering why her brain is so screwy.
I picture her as a giant and reaching down from the sky (or looking in a bubbling cauldron) and just stirring up trouble until everything is upside down and crazy.
( P.S. I hate Klaudia with a passion, cause her personalit...more
(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
Ali may have started the fire, but did she die in it? What happened to the girls in Jamaica? And what happened to Emily last summer?

This was an okay story, but I really wasn’t sure about certain plot-points.

This book surprised me a bit because I thought Ali was behind us now, but for some reason she was still playing a huge part in the girls lives, which considering she’d been absent for over a year was a little strange. When the girls once again started recei...more

As usual, I love another book in this series. I love the never-ending suspense, the countless secrets, the juicy scandals, the deep messages portrayed, the theories that arise, and the mystery that keeps me guessing and guessing more in each book. Although, I think I enjoyed this one a little less than the previous ones. I figure I'm just a bit exhausted from reading this series and the fact that it feels like it's dragging on and on. Apparently, there's going to be another arc in this series. A...more
I loved this book! Despite what others have thought (that Sara just continued the series to make money) I think this series was much needed- and wanted! I know personally that "Wanted" just did not seem like the end to me. There was much more that needed to be solved. Even it was truly the end to the real Ali and the mystery had been unsolved, there were so many other clues that Sara had left in the books but never really done much with. Although in this book things took a strange beginning (Wil...more
When I heard about this extension to the series, I expressed my concern and had the immediate issue that Shepard was just out to earn more by milking the story for all it's worth. I was unsure how Shepard was going to continue on a story that seemed completely finished in "Wanted (Pretty Little Liars, #8)", but the mystery goes on. I also was interested in what she was going to do since the "Pretty Little Liars TV show" is very different, but she sticks to the book plotline, and I was very happy...more
So is the title of this book Twisted or Every-stereotypical-girl-story? Is this even a book, or is it a piece of perfectly usable paper that was wasted for this...this...flush-it-down-the-toilet-burn-it-on-a-cross-spit-on-it-put-it-in-a-food-processor thing of blasphemy to the entire World of Literature?

Honestly, this crap doesn't measure up at all with the others. What, eight books didn't wrap the story up enough?

Oh, they did something terrible in Jamaica, and now, they can't be in the same roo...more

Now I have to get next book at Library... oh wait...Library is closed! UGH!!!!

When Alison DiLaurentis disappears, the lives of Spencer Hastings, Aria Montgomery, Hanna Marin, and Emily Fields are changed forever. One year after that fuzzy Labor Day weekend her body was found, and although she was gone, she was still impacting her four best friends lives in a very negative way. While vacationing in Jamaica the four girls run into a mysterious teenage girl who is remarkably similar to Ali. After being followed by this mysterious the girls come to the conclusion that Ali was...more
I loved the PLL series until I read this book. I just hate the turn the series goes through. But that's just me. I honestly think the series was better off without Twisted. But overall, it wasn't too bad.

I WANT TO READ THESE NEXT ONES! I totally feel in love with the series and thought it ended at Wanted but guess I was wrong!

“But then Klaudia's lips curled ino a conniving smile."Actually, Aria, I'm going to fuck your boyfriend. Tonight."
Aria started at her. It felt like Klaudia had just punched her in the throat. "Excuse me?"
Klaudia scooted closer to Aria. "I'm going to fuck your boyfried," she said again -in textbook-perfect English. "Tonight. And there's nothing you can do about it.”
