Heartless (Pretty Little Liars #7), Sara Shepard

After the fire, no one believes the girls when they insist that they saw Alison.

"A" sends Emily to Lancaster, where Emily comes to believe that Alison was not the girl in the hole, but that Wilden has murdered a girl named Leah and covered it up by making it seem like it was Alison.

Aria begins a relationship with Noel Kahn, after he defends her at a party. She visits a medium, who produces a message in Alison's handwriting that states that "Alison

How is this still happening?

As usual nothing happens in the prologue, although we are reminded of those suspicious builders from the first book. Then onto the exact same story arc as last time – as with the previous cliff-hanger figure (Ian), Alison has now vanished as quickly as she appeared. Which means a book’s-worth of characters obsessing about finding her and doubting her reality. Even Emily despairs “But it couldn’t be happening again. It couldn’t.” Sadly, it is. Also, we catch a brief

This was a very quick and enjoyable (like always) read. I felt like I got a lot more out of this book than the last couple. It’s still a little childish for me but I can’t judge too harshly on that because that’s just my age, I think. Like always, the girls different story lines are intriguing and keep you excited for the following books!

Heartless by Sara Shepard

Bad/boring review because I'm not home so I'm writing it on my phone:
This instalment was very enjoyable, as usual, but I don't think I enjoyed it quiet as much as the last 2 because of least they're over now, haha

I would've liked a bit more out of this one, but oh well, there's still about 9 books left in the series... Oh my, hahaha

This series really pulls you in. It's stuffed from cover to cover in each book with mystery after mystery. New theories are always arising and complications presenting themselves. Will Ali's murderer ever be caught? Is Ali even dead? Even after reading this installment, those questions still linger. One thing certain about this series is that no one will really know what happened until the series is finished. ...more
Heartless is, without a doubt, the best installment so far.
You could tell from the very beginning that the end was going to be worthy of shitting bricks, and upon arriving at that point, I realized it's very true.

In Heartless, the girls are kind of split up. Hanna is sent to a mental institution because of her big problem she's had her whole life, which I'm not going to get into detail about to spare you the details. Emily is sent to an Amish community by A to investigate, and she finds some int
Ok,. so this one was a little better than the rest. Hopefully this incline continues.

"A" is really sending these girls spiraling. I feel like if they communicated more with each other, they would actually figure more out but alas, they still aren't really friends. Although, in this book they are closer than previous books. So what has "A" been up to? A lot actually. Here's the rundown:
1. Sending Emily to an Amish community where she discovers that Wilden is hiding more than they think.
2. Sendin

It was during this book that I noticed just how different the books are from the tv show...Like I am on even playing ground now with the people that never even saw the show...the only difference is that in my head, they all look like the characters I came to know on tv. This time around, A splits the girls up a bit...she sends Hanna to a mental institution and she sends Emily off to Amish Country and Spencer and Aria are doing their own thing in Rosewood. Spencer is finding out that she might ha ...more
This series has kind of plateaued with this new A :( there is always the same formula of sort of boring plot with lots of wrong leads and some scandals, and them a cliffhanger/chocking ending. There is a grand 0 of character development to keep me invested and caring about these girls, the romances last about 5 seconds and they still aren't friends. Overall disappointed but still addicted 🤷‍♀️ ...more

(Audiobook format) This book was amazing! It started strong and started strong until the very end. Heartless totally made up for Killer being a little slow. This book kept me at the edge of my seat. I was totally hooked from the first chapter until the last. I just had to know what was going to happen. I thought the ending for the last book was great, but this one was way better. This was my favorite book of the entire series so far. Can't wait to see what the next book brings. ...more

I was so excited when this book came in the mail. I have been waiting for months to read it and it is finally here! YAY! Still really excited about it.
This book started where the last book ended, in the fire. The girls swear that they seen Ali in the fire but no one will believe them. In the last book Spencer had met with the woman who she thought was her adoptive mom only to have her take all of her savings. But then, at the beginning of this book, Spencer's parents tell her that the woman who

First of all, can I just say that this book sh0uld be called: The Hastings Family Secrets and How To Hide Them instead of Heartless? Because everything, pretty much everything, in this book was about how sneaky Spencers' parents are and especially her father. That asshole!! If I was Spencers and Melissas mother, I'd cut his balls off for what he did... Anyway, this entry to the series is full of action and yet it is another entry where Aria just kinda hangs out while stuff happens and does prett ...more

Very quick read as always, one of the more entertaining series of the book because it was more mystery than boy drama which I liked. The ending was a bit off though, but it almost felt like it was supposed to be.
so I feel like a ton of shit happened in this book. One thing that really bugs me is how obsessed with Ali Emily is - she thinks Ali is like perfect when Ali really is a horrible person. Like why are you so obsessed with someone like that? I feel bad for the girls in this one the whole aspect of getting arrested. I feel really bad for Spencer too - confronting her dad about the affair and ruining their marriage since her mom didn't know about it. Overall a lot happened in this book. ...more

Oh good grief. I cannot believe this wasn't the last book. I must have lost track. Surely there is no way that "Twisted" will wrap this all together with a pretty little bow and set everything straight.

You won't get too much validation from Heartless; however, this book stands out from the rest because the girls actually take ACTION, which is more than they do in the other books. They don't let people hold them back as much, and circumstances don't trap the girls in situations that render them c
This is really the point where the series has to keep coming up with random drama to continue the series. Hanna's in a mental hospital. Emma is hanging out with the Amish. There is very little explanation as to how that storyline is supposed to actually work. The plot seems to be based mostly on the reading of a Wikipedia page. Aria's chapters introduce even more supernatural elements, which just don't fit in well with the rest of the series. Also, it just doesn't feel like she's doing anything. ...more

I thought I would dive back into this series as I really want to finish it. I feel that this series has been dragged out for too long as there are 16 books in total.

This book was a little slow and not a lot happened during it. It seems very unrealistic that people would randomly remember little details from the day Ali disappeared. The girls seemed to be constantly remembering something despite it happening 4 years ago which seems really unbelievable. I have no idea how the author intends to wr

Is Ali really dead? Who set the fire in the woods? And who will find out the identity of the ‘killer’ first?

I really liked this book, it was a bit of a return to form!

We learned loads of new stuff in this book, and discovered lots of new secrets. Each of the girls was sent off in a different direction, each thinking that they were close to discovering Ali’s killer, and each coming to different conclusions. The good thing though was that each girl’s ideas seeme

Another Great book in the PLL Series by Sara Shepard!!

This one ended with a twist and a revelation that NO ONE saw coming!! I feel so bad for Spencer right now.

So sad about Jenna but can't wait to read the next book in the series to find out what happens next even tho ive seen the tv show many times!!

This is the most fun I’ve had reading in a WHILE. The DRAMA. I love how the book series makes sense compared to the TV series which stopped making sense somewhere around season 3. It’s more logical and less insane and I’m honestly shocked at how good it’s getting. I was expecting trash but this was the best, most God-tier trash out there. Highly recommend.

U think these girls would learn by now not to trust anything A says.
They just gotta jump right into A's trap

This one has been the best one.
4.5 stars

** Spoilers from earlier installments **

Heartless was the best book in the PLL series so far! I honestly don't care what the others say about this series, I admit that it's addictive. I said previously in my review in Killer that I felt like I'm about to give this series up but Shepard gave me a sparking hope, hahaha! The last two books, Wicked and Killer, were not that enjoyable so I'm really glad Heartless changed everything and the things that I loved about the earlier installments

I personally really love this whole series of Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard. All of these books are amazing and there has not been a bad one. These books keep you so interested and you find yourself always reading them to see what twist, scandal, heartbreak, and obstical will be thrown at you next. Pretty Little Liars is about 4 girls who were all best friends with one very popular girl named Ali. One summer was the best summer of their loves, they were with eachother every single day, ev ...more

Wait, who did I say killed Ali? Could it be the new nicknamed Pretty Little Liars, Emily, Aria, Spencer, and Hanna? And could Ali still be alive? Also, who is this new, just-as-threatening, A?

Emily, Aria, Spencer, and Hanna all claim that they found a dead body in the woods behind Spencer's house, only to have all their evidence of it there vanish without a trace left. Of course, the police don't believe them, so when the girls try to convince them more, they attract more attention from the pub
