In picture-perfect Rosewood, Pennsylvania, ash-blond highlights gleam in the winter sun and frozen lakes sparkle like Swarovski crystals. But pictures often lie—and so do Rosewood's four prettiest girls.

Hanna, Aria, Spencer, and Emily have been lying ever since they became friends with beautiful Alison DiLaurentis. Ali made them do terrible things—things they had to keep s

Killer is the sixth book in the Pretty Little Liars series, and this one definitely isn’t my favourite of them.

This instalment of the series made my love for these books waver. I have to admit that it pretty much annoyed me and I got a little bit fed up. It seemed to get a tad repetitive. Aria falling for inappropriate guys, Spencer getting tangled in lies and mistakes, Emily having serious girl/boy issues and Hanna battling to be Queen Bee. It’s been that way since the first book.

A was the only

At this point, the formula that all of the books follow is way too repetitive. If I didn't already own all of the books, this is the point where I would definitely give them up. There is going to be some sort of memory of when the girls were younger and Ali was still alive. The girls will flashback to this a million times throughout the book. New information will only be revealed half of the time. There will be at least one party. Aria's story is going to involve her getting involved with an old ...more

Sometimes, when reading a Pretty Little Liars novel, I find myself marveling at the girls' lives, disbelieving them. While I, too, hail from Pennsylvania, my hometown is the antithesis of the fictional Rosewood – fictional being the all-important word there, because there are moments when I question whether such places could really exist. But they do. Shop for real estate in the towns which dot the real Main Line outside of Philadelphia; check out the King of Prussia mall which the series' King ...more

3.5 stars, actually.

Well... Hanna never fails to disappoint me. The word 'pathetic' often comes to mind when I read about her and her little ridiculous adventures.

Spencer is the perfect example of how 'being smart' often means 'being able to learn lots of stuff by heart'. She obviously isn't able to use her brain in a more useful way. Smart people don't handle the entire inheritance fiasco and everything that happened because of it like she did. The outcome was something so obvious it even had a

Would have given it 4 stars if it weren't for the last 2 words I read!

"It was Ali"
I can't believe my eyes. It says that Alison's parents didn't check the body's DNA for some reason.
So, could it really be Ali?!
The things that happened to the girls in between the chapters left me with a very sad face, though. Mostly Spence. I can't believe she lost all her college money savings! It was a stupid thing to do anyway. Why doesn't she just live with her mum without buying an apartmen

To get ready for reading this book, I looked back on my reviews of the earlier books and flipped through my copy of Wicked. Just doing that was enough to convince me to go online and buy a copy of the seventh book, Heartless without having even yet cracked open this book (the sixth in the series).

I'm glad I did, because having read this book in one delightfully lazy day (I think I read it in three sittings total), I'm practically panting for the next one. Part of me is always expecting this ser

**Spoilers for previous books as usual, but none for this instalment**

Killer is the 6th book in the Pretty Little Liars series. I found it to have a good consistent pace but it still has that annoying repetitious look at the past, every time looking at tiny details that weren’t included before. Even if it was needed to give hints, too much repetition bothers my reading flow.

So the drama continues without a yield since old A kicked the bucket and a new diabolical, yet confusing new A is torturing

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t read the first 5 books of the Pretty Little Liars series do not read any further.

Hanna, Aria, Spencer, and Emily thought things would get better when A was killed. They were wrong. The original A might be gone but now there is someone new who knows there secrets and they want something in return for their silence.

Hanna has a new mission now. Her only goal now that she doesn’t have Lucas is to get back at Kate for stealing her father’s affection and her friends. It s

Wow, wow, wow, wow. Must read the next one right now. What the heck just happened????

While this book was a little low-key on the drama than the previous ones, it doesn't mean that A. isn't even anywhere close to being over. While I did like Wicked a lot better, this one wasn't that bad. The beginning was a little slow and it took me awhile to get through it, the ending totally makes up for all of it. Now I got to talk about the girls!

Hanna - She is my favorite. I just can't help but not like her

To start off, I would just like to say that this review might actually contain spoilers as this book is fairly far into the series, so those of you who haven't read the first five books might not want to continue on reading this review.

The writing in this book is great. It flows very well, despite the fact it's written in four different perspectives. The story never felt chopped together either which was great. And the fact that shocks me the most is that this is the sixth book in the series and

I hate this book.

I really, really hate this book.

Shepard really is just going OUT of her way to drag out an incredibly stupid and ridiculous story line. To save time, here's a bullet list of things I hate about this book:

-No self-respecting writer should ever use the words "made a farting noise" EVER, let alone MULTIPLE TIMES!
-I think by the SIXTH BOOK, people understand the basic plot. There is no need to repeat everything that has happened since book one. Repeatedly, at that.
-I must have rea

In picture perfect Rosewood, Pennsylvania, pictures often lie - and so do Rosewood's four prettiest girls.
Hanna's on a mission to corrupt Rosewood's youth, starting with a very attractive sophomore. Even though Hannah is Queen-Bee there is someone willing to change that and send Hannah back to her original self "Piggie". Aria's snooping into her boyfriend's past, but will she like what she finds. Spencer's stealing from her family, no wonder they dont like her, and pure little Emily's abstainin

Now that the old A is dead, Hanna, Aria, Emily and Spencer think that they are free from harassment. However, what they don’t know is that there is a new A that is out to get them and is worse than the first! Hanna’s convinced her new stepsister, Kate, is out to take down her entire reputation, (which isn’t looking too hot thanks to thee mysterious A) so she decides to fight fire with fire and tries to go for Aria’s younger brother, who Kate pretends to like.

Actual rating - 3.5

I enjoyed Killer slightly more than Wicked, but that was only because of the ending.

-A's texts still weren't as good as the earlier ones.
I really miss the creepiness.

I felt sorry for Spencer in this one. (view spoiler)

How much more can these girls get into? I'm not sure, but I'm sure sara shepard got lots more secrets reveal. These chics will never make to 20 at the rate they are going....

Isn't Jason hottie? :)

Anyways, I am little annoying about Hanna and Spencer. I mean... Why can't Spencer listen to her boyfriend about her "real" or "whatever" mother in New York. Now she is lost to world from her boyfriend, parents, and sister. But I think her parents are 100 times worse to treat shit to her. Hanna, enough with contest with her will-be-stepsister about Mike. I was like....Why can't Hanna tell her father about A note and she have miss her father. I mean...why can't Hanna tell he

Here's what I really don't like about this series:

1. The ever present high-pitched, familiar giggle. Each one hears a giggle when something goes wrong and they turn around but, *gasp* no one's there!
2. How can there be this many nutcases in one small town?
3. All their parents are jerks or just as dumb as they are.
4. Nothing they do makes sense.
5. I could buy the first 'A', but two? Nope.
6. How is this one person EVERYWHERE ALL THE TIME?
7. I do not buy that a 12 year old had a beauty so amazing t

Sara Shepard definitely knows how to end a book and make you crave its sequel. KILLER definitely has a killer ending -- no pun intended. I literally can't wait until HEARTLESS.

Sara Shepard writes very twisted and riveting plots that you can't ignore. At this point in the series, after writing 5 other books, she's a pro -- her writing is fair (nothing special, but there's nothing wrong with it), her characters are -- kind of -- deep, with real-person problems and real-person concerns, and her plo

I'm not even going to bother posting the jacket cover description because it is so ridiculous and not related to the plot of the novel. It includes the line "Spencer is stealing - from her family." She's not. The other lines about what the characters are up to are equally irrelevant, and the rest of it is just background (Ali's dead, the girls are being stalked. We've known this since book one).

That said, these books just keep getting more and more mysterious. And I love the cover for this one.

The girls are still freaked out about Ali’s killer. At first they were convinced it was Ian, but now, they don’t know for sure. They have no idea what to believe, and are getting new messages from a new A. Spencer has met what she thinks is her biological mother, but hasn’t told anyone about it for a friend/rival, Andrew. He thinks that she should be careful and not give 100 percent trust into this woman. Hanna has to do everything she possibly can with her new stepsister to be. This wasn’t her ...more

This is book 6 in the ‘Pretty Little Liars’ series.
Ian is on the run, and there’s a new A. in town.
Who killed Ali? Who’s the new A.? And what will happen next?


This was another interesting instalment and yet more secrets were revealed. In response to the ending though – I totally saw that coming.

I did enjoy this story, and I thought it was better than book 5. It was interesting to see how things developed and the new relationships between the characters. Some o

It was almost a workout reading the book Killer by Sara Shepard because I had to flip the pages so fast. I had to flip the pages so fast because I wanted to know what happened next. There is a mysterious person who torchers the four main characters, A. The main characters are trying to find out who this person is. How would you like to have someone know your every move? A sets a forest fire with the four girls in the woods. I wanted to uncover what happened to the

I'm getting kind of sick of al those mysteries. Al those leads that lead to nothing. Not knowing who killed Ali, who A is. It's like the story is being chewed and chewed all over again. Like a cow, I'm reading this book. Also, when I read about Hanna, how childisch she was acting and competing with Kate. Who could first get Mike?
Also that Spencer believed that Olivia was her real mother? And what kind of romance was that between her and Andrew? Also Isaac's mother who is mentalli ill? Cutting h

Emily blinked. Was it her, or did that statement seem...loaded? She checked Issac for his reaction, but he was innocently selecting a roll from a wicker basket. "Uh, thanks." Emily said, pulling the platter toward her. She did like meat. The kind you, um, eat.”
