Trisha | 31444 comments although this says it's Pretty Little Liars .5 book, it reveals many secrets very early

so read at your own risk :)

Please feel free to join Amanda and I!

Amanda | 4462 comments Yay, can't wait to read this.


message 3: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31444 comments me either!!! I think we already know all the secrets, but maybe with our NEW info, we'll be able to spot another suspect! :D Fingers crossed!


message 4: by Amanda (new)

Amanda | 4462 comments I hope so I'd like to be able to get some more insight on who we could have as a suspect.

message 10: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31444 comments okay 5 chapters in

In the first few chapters, I was really feeling back for Courtney! It's crazy to see Ali and the family from Courtney's perspective

but Yikes! (view spoiler)

I'm (view spoiler) and everyone else in town!

Nick (view spoiler)

Melissa (mlj0820) | 524 comments Ah! I happen to be reading this book as well right now, I am about 5 or 6 chapters in. Does "buddy read" mean there are only a specified amount of people reading this together or can i join in on this discussion?? I just joined this group today, so not sure of how things go! =]


message 12: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31444 comments You can definitely join in!

buddy read just means we're reading it together and commenting here.

You can join in any time!

currently, we're kind of coming back every 5 chapters
and chatting

we're marking spoilers, so we don't spill anything if someone hasn't gotten to that chapter yet!

so jump right in!

how far are you?
what do you think so far?

and how far are you into the series??


message 13: by Melissa (new)

Melissa (mlj0820) | 524 comments Alright, I'll need help learning how to hide the spoilers like you all do.

I am currently all caught up in the series, the only one I havent read yet is "Crushed", which the the newest book. I plan to read it after I finish this one.

I am actually at the beginning of Chapter 8. I think it is really good so far, I love all of her books and usually get through them pretty fast, I read the entire Lying Games series also.

Seems to be there are a few new characters introduced in this book, like Matt her boyfriend who went away, and now Nick, who I don't know what to think of yet...


message 14: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31444 comments Yes! I didn't know about (view spoiler)

Hmmm....

I'm done with Chapter 10
It was interesting (view spoiler)

but man seeing the two together (view spoiler) lol


message 15: by Amanda (new)

Amanda | 4462 comments I have not started this yet. I will start this once I get home from work.


message 16: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31444 comments No worries, I'm starting 3 books today, so I'm just kind of bouncing around!


message 17: by Amanda (new)

Amanda | 4462 comments Through with 10 chapters

I agree (view spoiler)

Nick (view spoiler)

message 19: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31444 comments lol! I love it! This one has me thinking and wondering :D


message 20: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31444 comments okay, I'm getting ready to pick this one back up! :D so excited! LOL! I love all the twists and ideas!


message 21: by Amanda (new)

Amanda | 4462 comments Me too, I'm picking this back up now as well.


message 22: by Trisha, lives on coffee (last edited Sep 26, 2013 12:44PM) (new)

Trisha | 31444 comments okay, 16 chapters done
and I'm frustrated!! lol

I don't think I like seeing things from Ali's perspective. (view spoiler)

Aria's dad (view spoiler)

lol This one is killing me!

Oh and Nick (view spoiler)


message 23: by Amanda (new)

Amanda | 4462 comments Finished.

These spoilers are through chapter 16.

I agree Trisha this book was frustrating. (view spoiler)


message 24: by Amanda (new)

Amanda | 4462 comments Spoilers through to the end.

Ali (view spoiler)


message 25: by Trisha, lives on coffee (last edited Sep 26, 2013 03:31PM) (new)

Trisha | 31444 comments I think this is the first Pretty Little Liars book that actually made me mad :(

I feel manipulated. I don't feel like this was an accurate picture of Courtney. Because she seemed SO manipulative. And SOOOO cruel and evil.

This book seemed like I was supposed to think "ahhh, poor Courtney, she had such a tough life"

ugh :(
(view spoiler)

(view spoiler)
but I'm excited for the next book. :) I'm hoping for some answers! LOL!


message 26: by Amanda (new)

Amanda | 4462 comments I know Trisha I felt there were things that I may have missed too. I have no clue about Nick (view spoiler)

I am excited for the next book too and I hope that we get some more answers.


message 27: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new)

Trisha | 31444 comments lol

thank you for buddy reading this with me.

There is no way I would have read this without a buddy

:)


message 28: by Gisbelle (new)

Gisbelle | 27299 comments What I still don't understand is that the whole family had no clue Courtney had switched place with Ali. Like it is possible, even they are identical twins.


message 29: by Trisha, lives on coffee (last edited Sep 26, 2013 05:12PM) (new)

Trisha | 31444 comments Yeah...it's pretty far fetched.

how would they not know when she switched

but suddenly know at the end that the left was the bad one
and that that one had hurt the other one

I thought the one left did some pretty convincing acting at the end there!

(I'm trying to avoid spoilers just in case anyone else comes onto this thread so I'm leaving names out :D)

You're welcome. I don't think I would have gotten to it without a buddy read either.


message 31: by Amanda (new)

Amanda | 4462 comments I thought that it was pretty far fetched as well. Even though they are twins there would be differences between the two that the parents should have been able to see.


message 32: by Melissa (new)

Melissa (mlj0820) | 524 comments I finished this a couple of days ago but forgot to update on here...I am just wondering about the other person...those who read know what I am talking about. I am going to start Crushed pretty soon! So maybe that will give me some more insight.
