Burned (Pretty Little Liars #12), Sara Shepard

It is revealed that prior to the events of Twisted, the Liars covered up Hanna's involvement in a car accident that left another girl, Madison, badly injured. While on a school-sponsored cruise in the Caribbean, the Liars uncover clues that suggest "A" is more than one person.

They begin to suspect Naomi Zeigler of being "A", after she befriends Hanna (who is unaware that Madison is Naomi's cousin) and attempts to sabotage Spencer's new relationship.

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?

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

Burned by Sara Shepard
book 12 in the Pretty Little Liars series

Let's just jump right in, shall we, okay...
So, my favourite aspect of this book was that it took place on a boat, which was such a refreshing and fun idea for a book, and also for these characters!

I also loved the relationships between the girls and their partners, I found them all super cute and fun in this one.

I enjoyed all the girls plot lines in this instalment, as-well as the overall plot line in the book!
The ending was awesome,

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

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

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! ;)

I enjoyed this a little bit more than the last few I’ve read! I liked that it was a whole different setting and I really liked the drama in this one! Although I’m confused as to why there is a bazillion new characters in every single book and we just are made to forget about previous characters :/
I wouldn't be surprised if Sara wrote another four after this. ...more
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

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 ...more
It's finally happened. I have rated one of these books 1 star. But it honestly couldn't be helped. This one angered me so much that I had to force myself to finish and that's saying a lot considering how fast they are to read. I've also come to the conclusion that this book was literally here to just show off their privilege.

The girls are on a school sponsored cruise with minimal supervision - I think there's a mention of a chaperone once but you never see them. So of course, this means drinking

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

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
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
The best part about this book was that Sara Shepard completely changed the setting but still managed to pull off all the crazy events and all the A speculations. Somehow, everyone that the girls get close to or become friends with; turn out to be connected to a murder or to another deep rooted secret.

I simply love this series; it honestly gets better with each book. I'm not even upset about it being a 16 books long series. And I really love the creative liberty that was taken with this one.

Wow, I didn't expect that last chapter. I'm not going to spoil anything for anyone, but Shepard gave it a twist and changed the mechanics we've been used to so far. I looooooved that the whole plot took place in the same scenario and the creepiness that filled the air every so often. I can't wait to see what's coming.

Plus, today I was pumped because of the season six premiere, so that might have influenced my opinion... who cares? AWESOME book.

Wow, Oh my gosh, this book was awesome! This book was so good and suspenseful, I couldn't put it down. I stayed up until 1:30 last night reading it because I needed to know what happens next. This is definitely my new favorite book in the series! I love this series so much and can't wait to read the next book :) ...more

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.
