In Rosewood, Pennsylvania, four perfect-looking girls aren't nearly as perfect as they seem.

Aria can't resist her forbidden ex. Hanna is on the verge of losing her BFF. Emily is freaking out over a simple kiss. And Spencer can't keep her hands off anything that belongs to her sister.

Lucky me. I know these pretty little liars better than they know themselves. But it's hard keeping all of their secrets to myself. They better do as I say . . . or else!

I was really excited to read this one after I finished the second book in the series because the story was basically just starting to get interesting. The book starts off with the girls receiving another text message from the mysterious 'A', it's almost like 'A' wants them to find out who she/he is. Then of course, the girls are even deeper into their lies than before. Spencer has a new secret and 'A' knows all about it, dying to blow the lid on it and tell everyone else.We actually get to find out about Spencer and Melissa's past in detail this time around. I thought it was great when we find out how they used to be so close but over time, they drifted apart and now they can't even stand the sight of each other. They do bond though in the book and a few times, it seems as though they might be getting over their hate for each other and may possibly move on.Emily's story line in the book was fantastic! They completely left this out of the TV show so it was very interesting to read about. Her parents send her away to Iowa because she won't join the 'gay away' club, Tree Tops.Hanna getting hit by the car was still there though, just with a few differences. One mainly being how she made a fool of herself at Mona's party but she can't remember it after she wakes up from her coma. And they completely left out Hanna and Lucas kissing in the TV show too! I wish they would have kept it in because it was really cute and I think their relationship is incredible. I love how he's planning on staying by her side through all the snide remarks and hatred she was getting from everyone.And then we have Aria. Her story is pretty much the same as the TV show except for the part that she was actually dating Sean Ackard instead of Noel Kahn. And Sean told the police that she was seeing Ezra which obviously led to a lot of drama. Oh, also the whole story line with her Father and Meridith is different too. Completely different. I think it's much better. It makes the story more interesting.I'm really excited about the fourth book. I actually started reading it straight after I finished this one because the story was too interesting. I'm nearly half way through it now. I'm probably after adding in a few parts from the fourth book in this review too without realizing so I probably won't write a review for it. But overall, I really loved this book. It's definitely the best in the series so far. Like I said before, If you began to read the series but got bored after the first book, keep reading! The story does pick up.more
This is classic Y.A. fiction revolving around privileged teen-age girls. Petty rivalries and jealousies, pressure to excel (from parents), to fit in (from peers). Plus the added angst of having a secret that could destroy their lives and someone who knows the secret and threatens to tell. The four girls have no idea who knows and who they can trust, they don’t even trust each other.“A” now shows he/she is not only a master manipulator that knows all their secrets, he/she will go to extreme levels to keep the four girls under her control. He/she will even kill to keep her identity hidden.more
There's not much to say about this book that I haven't already said about the first 2. The suspense of Perfect is there and will keep you on the edge of your seat. Things in the novel started to become clearer and sometimes you'll get that "a-ha!" moment when you figure something out (or think you have). The characters are all the same, they haven't changed one bit, and I like that about this book. Along with the characters being true for all 3 novels, the action, suspense, drama and excitment is true too. I'm glad that I have number 4 to jump right into because with the ending of Perfect, you will want and need to have Unbelievable in your hands to start right away.I'm excited to be able to see what else A has planned and see what get's revealed in Pretty Little Liars #4 since I've heard that this is where the good (better), juicy stuff comes out!If you haven't already, you should definitely grab these books to read. You wont be disappointed, and they are quick, easy reads for in between some of the other books that are on you pile to read!more
I quite enjoyed the third installment in the series. Sara Shepard maintains excellent suspense and has created this little world where everyone is a suspect, possibly even more than one person.My issues with book 2 were still issues coming into book 3; the parents of these four girls do not act like parents would. I don't believe Ella, Aria's mother, would kick her daughter out of her house and let her be homeless just because she kept a secret that she did for her father. Parents pitting children against each other is wrong; and parents generally understand that and don't resent their children. With the relationship that has been portrayed between Ella and Aria, Ella's cold shouldering just comes off as a mean big sister; not a mother. The excellent parts of the book are still in action this time around. Sara creates such unique characters, and you genuinely feel horror for poor Hanna when her dress rips off at a dance, and when Emily's old-fashioned parents try and send her away to 'cure' her lesbianism. The psychology of the stories is also going down a lovely, dark avenue with the girls experiencing nightmares about Ali and her murder, the guilt of keeping their secrets and wondering what she might know is really eating away at them all, and that comes right off the page for me. Again; I'm eager to keep reading. It's been awhile since a series has wanted me to keep reading. The Sookie Stackhouse books lost me at book three.more
The third book was a little frustrating because I was ticked off with some of the choices of the characters and the ones I did like, got punished for them. Of course, that was the point, so I don't mind. I do wish I could just spend the day reading the rest of these books. The twist revolving around Spenser was not really a shock, but it was very well done. And I spent about 20 minutes after finishing this book trying to figure out who A is. I can't wait to read more. Shepard's really gotten me caught up in this series, which is really good.more
This is book 3 from the Pretty little liar series . I really like this one too . Pretty much its the same idea for every book.more
I really liked this book. It was very entertaining and very descriptive. The writer did a very good job of making you feel like you were in rosewood.more
When I was reading this book, the whole time I was wondering "WHO COULD 'A' BE?!" it kept me at the edge of my seat, thinking it was one person, then second guessing myself a short while later. I reallly enjoyed this book, I might think that it is the best out of the first three that I've read so far. I can't wait to read the next one and find out who 'A' is !more
After I finished the first two books and I still wasn't bored, I thought that i would probably get bored when I was reading this book because i usually don't read very long series because I feel like they stick to the same plot for too long, but this book had just as many twists and turns as the first two and I was interested the whole way through. It left me wanting to read the next book right away.more
I’m still loving this series! I started reading it when the series on ABC Family began and the books are just as fun as the show. Sara Shepard does a great job writing these characters and keeping you interested, while holding back on answering the big questions. A suspicious glow is cast on most everyone in Rosewood, and the pieces fall into place little by little.Things are heating up in Rosewood, Pennsylvania in the third book of the Pretty Little Liars series in the most suspenseful installment yet. Aria’s boy drama and the secret about her father’s affair come to a head, Spencer starts to piece things together in therapy, Hanna has a major breakthrough in the case, and Emily’s relationship with Maya heats up.More secrets are revealed through a home video that resurfaces featuring the girls and Ali. All of the girls are searching for the answers and getting closer to the truth.This installment was action packed! “A” is still blackmailing the girls and taking it up a notch by revealing her secrets to others.. How does she manage to be in so many places at once? “A” is everywhere.Perfect is the most exciting yet. I’ve given up waiting for the answers and now I’m just along for the ride. Perfect ends in a shocking cliffhanger that will leave you begging for the next book in the series: Unbelievable.more
This book was amazing!!! The detail and suspense are so great that its just unbelievable! When I read this book i was waiting for my sister to finish her gymnastics and people were really bored and I brought this book, every now and then I would gasp from something that happened and everyone would look at me and think I was really weird, but I couldn't help myself! Make sure that you dont read the last few chapters at night alone! they really scared me!!more
Oh the drama keeps continuing in Rosewood. Ali is dead, Aria’s secret is out and the rest are all about to find out their secrets will be leaked soon. A is getting a little more deceitful but A is also getting a little sloppy. Hanna finally figures out who A is, but before she has a chance to tell her friends, tragedy strikes.Now, when the other secrets come out, major drama occurs. Hanna loses popularity, Emily is sent away and Spencer, well the first secret A knew about isn’t out, but a new secret has her family irate, but ready to hide it as well. Oh, and Aria, lets just say another secret is about to pop out and with any luck, they’ll keep it under wraps.Ahhh it’s so hard to write these summaries without giving too much away! This book was definitely up to par with the first one, maybe a little better. There was drama around every turn and I’m now halfway through the 4th book and still don’t know who A is. I hope I find out soon because I only go the first four. I am going to have to check out the library to see if I can find the others.I am still a little frustrated with these books because although it would change the plot line, there would be so much less drama if they told each other when they heard from A until waiting until the next shoe drops.Much like the Private series, I have a hard time wrapping my brain around these girls being teenagers. I know I grew up in a different bracket of wealth than both of these series’, and even though I’ve seen reality shows about wealth and teens, it’s hard for me to believe these lives are possible.I give Perfect 5 bookmarks.more
This book has a lot of twists and turns and really leaves you guessing at the end. Emily's parents are mad and embarrassed that she is gay and wants Emily to go to Tree Tops, a place where they try to make people not to be gay. I really feel bad for Emily because she needs supposed during this difficult time in her life, and the only way her parents will let this pass is if Emily goes to stay with her Aunt and Uncle. So in the end of the book Emily is going there. Hanna isn't friends with Mona anymore and she finds out who "A" is but gets into trouble in the end of the book before she can tell anyone. Spencer finds out that when she was younger and something traumatic happened to her she forgot about it. And she thinks that she what she did when Ali died, and she thinks that she did it. She also steals her sisters paper and hands it in as her own and is nominated for the Golden Orchid award. So in this book Spencer's parents treat her better because of this big achievement. Until "A" let's everyone in Spencer's family know the truth. Then there is Aria, my favorite of the girls, who is having a relationship with her teacher Ezra. Only to have "A" come into the picture and gets Ezra arrested. Aria also sees Hanna's ex Sean and moves in with him and his family after her mom and her fight because Aria knew about her dad's affair and never told her mom.more
Hanna, Spencer, Aria and Emily are still dealing with Ali's murder investigation. Someone leaked a home video of the five girls together days before Ali went missing and the media can't stop playing it. Repeatedly watching the video makes each girl wonder if they really did know Ali at all. Spencer sums it up by saying: "Being Ali's friend was great, but we had to make a lot of sacrifices. We went through a lot together, and some of it wasn't good. It was like, 'We go through all this for you, and you repay us by ditching us?'" (p. 153)As each girl struggles to deal with "A's" threats, "A" begins to up the ante. "A" is now sending texts and leaving messages to the people in their lives exposing their secrets. As each girl is on the verge of losing it all, one of them desperately tries to remember the night Ali went missing. Is it possible she's responsible for Ali's death? "A" makes one little mistake and one of the four friends realizes "A's" identity. Before she can tell the others, she's mysteriously involved in an accident. Will she survive to reveal "A's" identity? Or will "A" have to take drastic measures to fix his/her mistake?Perfect, so far, is my favorite in the series. The author does a great job of showing how each girl is struggling to maintain her sanity and keep her life intact while dealing with "A's" threats. I didn't see the end coming and I can't wait to start Unbelievable to see what happens next.more
after they keep on getting all the weird and threatening texts from A, they try to find out who exactly is A. but A won't let them find out who he is. hanna and mona have been BBF since Ali went missing, and now because of A, mona is showing her true colors and spreading rumors about Hanna. when emily ignores A, the whole world finds out that she is gay. her parents threaten her if she didnt go to an anti-gay hospital to get theraphy or she would be sent away to Iowa to live with her anti-sex uncle and aunt. When Spencer is stressed out with all the essays she has to do, A tells her to use her sister melissa's essays. she listens to A and when she turns it in, she is nominated for a contest for an essay contest. Melissa some how knows about it but she doesn't tell spencer. when spencer becomes a finalist, and her parents are talking to her more than they talk to spencer, melissa is pissed and she tells on her.Aria had the perfect boyfriend, Sean. he had the perfect family and perfect body, once Aria is kicked out of her house by her mom after their dad lives them, she goes to stay with Sean. in the last book, she has an affair with her AP english teacher. now when she gets tired of Sean, she goes to see her teacher, Ezra and somethings happens. when she wakes up from a nightmare about Ali, she and Ezra start playing. when they were going back to sleep, the police came and you would never guess who is there, Sean. they arrest Ezra and now Aria is homeless. Hanna finds out who A is once she gets a note from A and the number wasnt blocked, Aria figures out who is Ali's killer. Spencer figures out what had happened the night Ali disappered, and emily might be going to Iowa. OMG something hasppens to Hanna becuase she knew too much. OMG who is A........more
