It's spring break, and the pretty little liars are trading in Rosewood for a cruise vacation. They want nothing more than to sail into the tropical sunset and leave their troubles behind for one blissful week. But where Emily, Aria, Spencer, and Hanna go, A goes, too. From scuba diving to tanning on the upper deck, A is there, soaking up all their new secrets.

Emily is smoo...more

BURNED? Are they going to be in another fire?
If this is true, please just take my brain cells now.


Plus that's the cover?

Now for the actual review!


Hanna is driving this drunk girl, Madison, home. They get into a car crash and Madison is unconscious. She calls the girls to come to the scene, where she panics and they hide her body and flee.

"Burned" doesn't seem to fit with all the other books (or would have made more sense on one the earlier books at least - 7 or 8?). I personally prefer "Demented," "Disturbed," "Whacked," "Surreal," or "Zippy."

Not that it matters. They could call it "PLL12ZOMG" and it'd still be a bestseller. :-)

Okay, here's the deal. I know I'm about the farthest away a reader can be from the target audience of the Pretty Little Liars novels, but you guys know that it's still one of my favorite series nonetheless. If you scroll through each of the books, there's a good chance you'll find a review of me gushing lovingly over it. That being said, this series needs to end.

I'm still trying to figure out if I'm beginning to like this series less and less because (a) it is, in fact, decreasing in quality, o...more

After finishing this book, I'm starting to lose faith in the plot. What started as an interesting, thrilling novel about five girls keeping non-life threatening secrets turned into a murderous spree. It's just not believable anymore. I know life is hard when you are teenager but we're talking about five teenagers who have committed serious crimes. They're just not hiding petty secrets, these pretty little liars are hiding murders, ex-convicts, car accident secrets, and endangering other people's...more

Is this finally the last? Has this heart gripping, midnight wakers, heart wrenching book come to its final? Has there to be another set of four? When will these liars finally be at peace or have a TYPE of ending? Is it full time to The Lying Game now? Has this become a tragedy of none? The Pretty Little Liars took you over your seat and dragged you deep into the darkest oceans to find yourself panting for more and to suffocate at the ocean floor, completely paralyzed. A series going into blame,...more

I hope this is the last one!!! I love the books..

But come on The girls always hold in their secrets.

Regret it later.

Lie to the people they love.

Then it bites them in the butt.

If she were to make another book I would be forced to read it, and this journey is getting long lol!!!

Have not ever lost any interest in the books though can't wait to read it! ;)

These books are cray. Can't wait for 13 and 14 so I can finally figure out this shit.

Ok I want to read this the MOST of ANYONE! I talk about PLL nonstop (no joke)! I been waiting for what feels like forever to get to read this: the last PLL book (or so I think)! Sadly, I'm gonna hav to wait a bit longer, but I don't know if I can hold a grudge for that long! Uggggh! :P
Aleesha
I was really hoping this would be the last book but it's not.

Honestly speaking the main body of the book is exactly the same as the other pretty little liars book albeit some new names. Emily gets a crazy girlfriend again, Hannah is trying to be friends with the popular crowd, Spencer is running after another perfect guy and Aria is still kooky. Throw in A and you have it.
It was pointless to read the whole thing just skipping to the end of the book would have given us the only new teensy tiny t...more

Sorry Sara Shepard, you've lost a fan. This series has dragged on so long that I can't keep an interest in it any more. It's just the same old same old, in each book. The only things that seem to change are the secrets, lies and who's A now.
Spencer, Aria, Emily and Hannah just sound like whiny brats now, and I just can't be bothered with wasting my time any more.
I think it's time to put this series to bed already.

Even the TV series has lost my interest, they take too many breaks, and wait too lo...more

I wouldn't be surprised if Sara wrote another four after this.

OK SO NOW THERE'S GOING TO BE ANOTHER BOOK IN THE SERIES AFTER THIS ONE. IT'S GOING TO BE CALLED CRUSHED. WTF WHEN IS SHE GOING TO STOP? I LOVE THESE BOOKS BUT THERE'S JUST WAY TOO MANY NOW.

Cannot flipping wait!!! I need to know if A is really Alison! I bet it is!

A typical trashy Pretty Little Liars book, where I yell at the characters for their stupidity throughout the entire thing. I sort of hate these books for being so awful, but then I need to know how it all ends, too, and so I keep reading. And, let's be honest, it's a nice little break, so read something so easy and titillating. The girls are on a cruise this time, but the book still follows the formula of the previous ones: They suspect someone who is slightly suspicious, put all their eggs in o...more

Can this be the last book? It is after all the 12th one. That's longer than Harry Potter! Honestly, I don't want to still be waiting on these books when I graduate college.

Blech I so do not like this cover. The title blends in too much. Plus the cover for Stunning kind of set the bar high.

IT'S OFFICIAL. I READ IT. AND LOVED IT.

okay, so since I'm like a supernerd, I ordered Burned on Amazon back in September, and selected one-day shipping so it showed up on my doorstep the day it's released, today. And then I got home from school and proceeded to read the whole thing in one sitting.

SPOILER ALERT!!! YOU HAVE BEEN FOREWARNED. DON'T READ THE REST OF THIS REVIEW IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE BOOK!!!!

Okay, so the good:
I stayed in the edge of my seat. I just love how Sara Shepard made A so.....more

Honestly, I found this book disappointing. This was supposed to be the last book in the PLL series, and we were going to find out who A is. First problem with this series is that Sara Shepard should have stopped at the eighth book. But she wants to make money, so she continues writing these 'books.'

Now let me say, I am a fan of Pretty Little Liars. I've read all 12 books and the little spin offs, like Pretty Little Secrets. I watch the tv show avidly. I await the next book release with anticipat...more

I know I probably have said this about the previous 11 books, but they really are all the same. The 4 girls are all stressed out that someone (A) is going to reveal all their secrets, and yet they just keep doing more and more stuff that they dont want people to know about. I was kind of hoping this would be the last in the series (come on, 12 books is enough!), but the way it ended, you know there are going to be more. And of course I'm a sucker and will read them. This one wasnt very exciting,...more

This series has just been going on entirely too long. It's getting kind if ridiculous. At this point, I don't care who A is anymore. Atleast they are super quick reads. The show is much better.

Ok, is the publication date for this wrong? Because I CANNOT wait until 2014 to find out who new "A" is

Hopefully this will be the last one and the Liars can get some peace...

Earlier this year, I started reading the PLL series and finally got up to date right as Stunning came out. So, this was the first actual gap I've had to sit through between two of the books. It was an interesting experience. But, picking up another Pretty Little Liars book after not reading one for about six months is kind of like going back to an old friend's house, sitting in front of their fire place, and having a homemade snack. It's really nice and I wish I could convey to some of my friend...more

(Source: I own a copy of this book.)
Hanna accidentally almost kills someone in a car accident, the girls are off on a cruise, and it seems A. is going with them.
Who is A. though? Will we ever find out?


This was another okay story for me, and again the Ali storyline drags on.

The beginning of this book was interesting at least with the car crash, and I was hoping that maybe we were going to get more of this storyline instead of the Ali/A. stuff, but no, A. was still tormenting them, and the coincid...more

Well, it's definitely better than Ruthless...anything's better than Ruthless.

I don't even know anymore...

I've been with the Pretty Little Liars series for a long time. Like, if this were The Vampire Diaries, I would be an Original. Now, I'm not saying that Burned was bad. Actually it was pretty good (not as good as Stunning, which I actually really enjoyed, but good nonetheless)! My only problem is the fact that...more
