NEW Wicked Author Sara Shepard ò Sara Shepard
Empty girl Avril was singing about Oddest Character Extrapolation Based on a Name The guy s name was Wolfgang for God s sake What if he spoke in rhymes What if he was the guy who impersonated Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart for the Hollis Conservatory s Great Composers of History festival What if he showed up in a doublet and hose and a powdered wig I admit that Wolfgang is indeed a worrying name but none of these theories seems terribly likely does itMost Unfortunate Common Characteristic on which to Base a Relationship They d compared favorite books and TV shows and discovered they both liked M Night Shyamalan movies ven though he was terrible at dialogue He s also terrible at moviesLeast Appropriate Comment in Front of Your Father I hate honeydew she said primly It tastes like sperm Most Unusual Example of School Discipline Because she d plagiarized an con paper Rosewood Day had mandated that if she didn t get an A this semester she would be removed from the class permanently So plagiarism is okay if you re clever nough to have not needed to do it And being removed from a class you have trouble with is a punishment I don t understandOddest Misunderstanding of Sexuality 1 Emily hadn t ven been offended and that worried her too if gay jokes no longer bothered her did that mean she wasn t gay No Why would the gender of the people you are sexually attracted to be inexorably linked to your tolerance of jokesharassment Also why is Emily so stupid Oddest Misunderstanding of Sexuality 2 So does this mean you rebi Or what I don t know what I am Emily answered uietly Maybe I just likepeople Maybe it s the person not necessarily their gender So bi then Like he said What xactly does Emily think bisexuality means if not xactly what she just specifiedOnce again the majority of this book was just rephrasing of previous scenes from the series with occasional new nonsense sprinkled in Surely there has to be some significant new plot development in the next book to keep this series dragging on 35 stars spoilers for the previous books in this seriesThis series has always created mixed feelings for me and rightly so It s a thriller but at the same time its pitched for its ntertainment value and that really is its best feature I never know what to xpect going into this books something simply amusing or something with a but chill factor Wicked was the first book that I can happily say that managed to create a perfect blend of those two lements The book started off a little slow and with an almost hesitant tone But I understood that the readers were heading into uncharted territories and the author had to carefully set Naked Choke everything up for the new disasters about to fall the girls but not hint at anything too much after we thought thatverything was practically over While the plotline lacked the action of some of the previous book it made up for it with the an incredible level of suspense and just general Pleasure Activism: The Politics of Feeling Good eeriness I loved the final third and have to say that while it wasn t scary I definitely had goosebumps and wasagerly flipping the pages with anticipation I also Murder at the Mansion enjoyed most of the subplots for once though they were a little repetitive and some were simply rehashes of the last book s secretsI was a little dissatisfied with the lack of character development thoughspecially concerning Hanna and Emily I find them both irritating and I am always tempted to skim their sections Hanna was just too bitchy as always I didn t like the way she treated Lucas and the lack of xploration into her grief frustrated me There was a great opportunity there for some tremendous character development and I was saddened that wasn t tapped Emily s xcessive giggling and crying bothered me like always Spencer and Aria remained consistent though and I still adored reading about them both Overall not much happened in this seuel but the suspense factor worked wonders I m Seductive Surrender eager to pick up Killer as soon as I can Reviewed by Jaglvr for TeensReadToocomIan Thomas is in jail awaiting trial and the girls are able to relax and return to their lives Or can they Just when the reader thought that the mystery of A has been solved at thend of UNBELIEVABLE bizarre Seductive Surrender (Highland Heather Romancing a Scot, events await t Like always this series is alwaysntertaining and you never find yourself feeling bored Although this is only the 5th book in the series I ve read I did feel like something was missing Sus Wicked by Sara Shepard Actual Rating 455 StarsThis isn t 5 stars because I m still waiting for that PLL book that just blows me away I do believe it s coming hahahaI loved this instalment in the absolutely addicting PLL seriesThis book was full of creepiness intense moments friendships and not so much friend shipsI loved getting to see of Kate she has a great name and Hanna s relationship it was so interesting The matter going down with Aria and Xavier was also really interesting can t wait to see how that goes down in the books to come I feel like this book didn t have much of Emily in it which I njoyed because i think she my least fav character although the parts she was in did still njoySpencer was great as usual although I think this book focused a lot on Hanna than anyone which I also loved because Hanna is so complex and fun to read aboutI predicted the ndingbecause of the TV show ven though it didn t xactly happen the same way hahaI also loved the chapter where Hanna was running on the trail such a picturesue sceneI completely love this addicting series and I just love Sara Shepard s writing so much she definitely knows how to write a thrilling and nail biting novel Can t wait to keep reading Onto number 6 now I think yes Order of my fav to least fave PLL books so far1 Wicked2 Pretty Little Liars3 Unbelievable4 Flawless5 PerfectPS I really recommend reading these books in xam season they re a great relief when you need it and don t reuire a lot of thought xxHappy reading guys This series is so good The books get better The Deepest Sin every time Stay tuned for reviews Ok soverything we ve read in the first 4 books has been alive and what we thought we knew is all wrong Ali s killer is still out there A is not who veryone thought it was And Emily isn t gay kindamaybeWelcome to Rosewood where verything is a lieSigh These girls man Honestly they bring all of it on themselves Also is there any other
of Ali these girls For being such good friends these books only seem to talk about the sleepover where she disappeared and this stupid find the flag game at their school And we get this stupid game description very single book multiple times from multiple POV s and for multiple pages NO ONE CARES ANYMORE Again why were these girls friends with this horrible childAnyway the girls Spencer dealing with the fall out of having cheated on her English paper and also the bombshell that she may be adopted Her parents instead of talking to her about this recent revelation just choose to ignore her Solid parenting right there Melissa is still a conniving brat of a sister so not much has changed there And Spencer still makes stupid decisions when it comes to IanAria Umm goes from living with dad to living with mom to living with dad again Also the author seems to think it s okay for 16 year old girls to have relationships with men in their 30 s because once again Aria is after an older man until she realizes he s dating her mom But then when he assaults her she doesn t tell her mom what a skeeze this guy is but just leaves so that veryone can be happy SighEmily The most useless character of this series Still whiny still in love with Ali And also now not so gay Even has a boyfriendHanna Still a bitch who only cares about being popular Had a boyfriend who treated her like the world but oh no he s a dork so I must dump him to remain cool with these people that I honestly hate Grow up HannaHonestly I think that s my main issue There is still no character growth in any of the girls and we are through 5 books And they re still not friends so verything is still very disjointed Maybe I should have skipped these and just stuck with the TV show. Finally behind bars the girls think they're safe But those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it And they should know by now that I'm always watchi.Memory Of Ali These Girls

interesting twists like i SO did not xpect ian to get killed and i am insanely curious of who A could possibly be i also am DYING to know what happens with mily and her new boyfriend he sounds like a

this party A starts sending texts again and leads the girls outside where they discover Ian s body But of course while they go for help the body has mysteriously disappearedcue ye roll here Somehow it continues There s another A We still don t know who killed Alison It s almost as though the previous four books were a total waste of time And Cycle Two beginsIn the flashback prologue we are re introduced to Snowflakes on the Sea every single Rosewood Day student whose name hasver been mentioned in the books all of whom are Wrathful Chaos: Five Books of Satanic Philosophy entranced by some nonsensical annual treasure hunttime capsule thing the magnitude of which Shepard assures me does not needxplaining All I learn from this is that the whole of the school grounds must be full of buried flags which no one ither currently or in the future could be interested in I suppose the whole matter can serve as a microcosmic representation of Rosewood s attitudes in general though the focus is ntirely on the privilege of winning the competition and the glamour of being recognised but no one stops to think what the actual purpose of burying time capsules full of decorated flags is since there is no purpose It s all just fuss and glamour around an mpty centre designed so that someone can be the best at something and veryone Humanism: The Greek Ideal and its Survival else can be losersAt any rate once we have heard once again about howmbarrassed both Hanna and Emily are of their hair colour poop brown and chlorine greenish respectively as we are told repeatedly in ach book the story proper begins The four girls are now having group sessions with a grief counsellor which #means we have to hear very plot point #we have to hear The Fix every plot point the previous four books reiterated The counsellor s advice is to put all the items which remind them of Alison into a bin bag and bury them which is not only uite stupid but also pretty much what they decided to do off their own bat at thend of the last book So I m not really sure what their families are paying the very best grief counselor in the Philadelphia area for Particularly since none of them seem specially grief stricken Still I suppose they may as well waste money on unnecessary pseudo therapy as on anything lse The rehashing of old vents from the previous books drags on tediously for some time leavened with the occasional new development Apparently the A blackmail notes have become a nationwide phenomenon which seems rather wishful thinking on Shepard s part Otherwise nothing much is happening Hanna is so stupid she keeps trying to send Mona texts about mani pedis forgetting that Mona is in fact dead and that prior to her demise she tried to kill Hanna Mike continues to be a sexual pervert but a girl has unwisely agreed to go on a date with him Aria does the talking to someone at an art show and realising too late he s the artist storyline but she s not concerned because she can tell by the way the artist in uestion sexually assaults her just after they meet that he thinks she s sexy and since he is a man this is flattering and she would like to sleep with him Spencer is annoyed that she is being lightly punished for the ssay competition cheating thing which is still being mentioned as though it was in any way interesting Spencer s male uivalent Andrew continues
to clumsily xpress sexual interest in her despite her numerous previous rebuffs Emily watches a Christian rock band at her localclumsily xpress sexual interest in her despite her numerous previous rebuffs Emily watches a Christian rock band at her local and notices that the male lead singer has the same shoes as her She then gets a feeling like lectricity flowing through her and is suddenly not a lesbian any Apparently Jesus can cure gays after all I m uncertain how much of this is deliberate and how much is down to massive stupidity uite a lot of time is taken up with Hanna wondering how she could possibly have failed to notice for. In idyllic Rosewood Pennsylvania four very pretty girls just can't help but be bad Hanna will do anything to be Rosewood's ueen bee Spencer's digging up her. .
3 years that her best friend was a deluded psychopath who knew all her secrets and wanted her dead The Casa Mono Cookbook even though they were incredibly close and lovedach other like sisters Hanna is pretty thick but it does stretch credulity that ven someone as dense as her could have been completely unaware of the situation Strangely however having the characters of the book as baffled as the reader as to how they are supposed to take the plot seriously does not make the books any less awful The new plots continue the sub soap opera awfulness of the arlier books Spencer s grandmother dies and leaves ach of her grandchildren 2 million xcept for Spencer I was too distracted by the disgusting privilege of the Hastings family to care why but I assume it s because Spencer will turn out to be illegitimateadopted Meanwhile Aria s new inappropriate love interest turns out to have all the combined flaws of her last two being both older and involved with someone she knows in this case her own mother Since absolutely nothing of interest came of the previous two unsuitable liaisons I don t have high hopes for this storyline Ian is released on bail due to his mum developing Plot Convenient Cancer and immediately afterward the girls all receive another A message This means that A 2 is obviously not Ian but naturally we have to sit through page after page of various people assuming that it is and telling the police as much After all they all saw him on the news report putting his hand into his pocket And what s kept in pockets Mobile phones obviously Case closed The usual nothing much occurs Emily takes up a lot of pages falling in love with stereotypical sensitive musician type Isaac who is as intensely boring as she is Hanna decides to be best friends with her three worst nemies which is hard to care about if you re not 10 years old and an idiot Aria s family bond with her mum s new boyfriend over their mutual hatred of all Icelandic people who are apparently weird Hanna continues to drop her boyfriend very time she has any friends and then Lachlan's Protg (English Edition) expect him to pick up the pieces when she falls out with them Ian suddenly appears and tells Spencer that there s something very important she doesn t know related to Alison s death but he can t tell her what it is yet because it s not nearnough to the nd of this cycle Mike continues to harass Emily for being a lesbian Spencer jumps onto the prophetic dream bandwagon seeing a vision of an older and a younger Alison aged 13 and 12 respectively arguing with ach other over Ian Luckily she can tell the difference because she is able to match any outfit of Alison s with the time and date she wore it anywhere up to 4 years ago As can all of Alison s other friends Obviously It increasingly seems that I am supposed to believe that Alison is literally haunting people s dreams whenever the plot is getting a bit thin although why she can t find anything better to do as a ghost than offer the vaguest of useless clues and bicker with herself over boys I m not sure Alison s family appear now and again and we are informed that they are behaving weirdly although nothing in the writing indicates this After ndless running away crying and making a scene in public places Emily finally tells her new boyfriend that she used to go out with a girl and he graciously accepts this which is xactly as you would xpect from the smug type of Christian he representsThe trial is ventually reached but unfortunately doesn t get very far as it turns out that Ian has Conflict in Blood escaped the Rosewood police who are on typicallyffective form and disappeared In response the police amp up the security on the girls although for some reason this personalised security only applies when they re at a party Spencer fails to tell the police that she has seen Ian basically because she can t be bothered Everyone continues to drone on incessantly about the flag hunt thing from 4 years ago which they have suddenly simultaneously decided is massively relevant The magical website which Spencer joined automatically finds her a potential birth mother by using only Spencer s name and address which seems a touch unlikely Hanna continues to be stupid that a normal human mind can comprehend Spencer joins in by deciding to dig up the bin bad they buried at the beginning of the book because she thinks Alison told her to do so in a dream Inside it she finds a sketch Aria drew of Alison and Ian 4 years ago and uses it as actual concrete vidence of their feelings and motions at that time The only actual clue she finds is yet another hint about the flag hunt thing which I very much do not care about Meanwhile in yet another The Crucified Ones: Calling Forth the End-Time Remnant example of Rosewood sxcellent parenting Hanna s father punishes her for bullying her step sister by decreeing that they can now only attend social Grace Hopper and the Invention of the Information Age (Lemelson Center Studies in Invention and Innovation series) events if they are together Which I m sure will resolve matters Then for some reason the girls allnd up running about in the dark outside Logic, Labels, And Flesh exactly like they were told not to in danger from A As usual none of them die but since something dramatic has to occur to conclude the book Ian is found dead Which isntirely his own fault for telling someone that he had a big secret but refusing to disclose it since according to the rules of badly written drama that s Dialogue:
