Hello there avid readers! I hope all of you have been having a wonderful life. For me, it’s a bit complicated. Doesn’t seem like I’m going back to school this Fall. I didn’t get campus housing and I go to Emerson College and I live in Florida so I’m sure you can imagine how hard it is for me to find a place and why I haven’t yet. I’m not giving up yet though! I have until Thursday to find a place to live.
But this is why I read, to escape reality, to fill my thoughts with other wonders and forget my worry’s, even if it’s just for a moment. So this is what is on my list for this week. You’ll notice a theme. Just a heads up, the synopsis for each is provided by Goodreads.
Rewind to junior year in Rosewood, Pennsylvania, to a winter break no one has ever heard about. . . .
Fat snowflakes fall onto manicured lawns, quilted stockings hang over marble fireplaces, and everyone is at peace, especially Hanna, Emily, Aria, and Spencer. Now that Alison’s murderer is in jail and A is dead, they can finally relax. Little do they know there’s a new A in town…
Rule number one of being an effective stalker: Get to know your prey. So I watch these liars day and night, keeping an eye on the trouble they get into, the messes they make, and the secrets they keep. Hanna’s desperate for a very personal session with her gym trainer. Emily is number one on Santa’s naughty list. Aria’s old flame from Iceland is about to land her in hot water. And Spencer’s resorting to some backhanded tactics to get what she wants.
What happens on holiday break stays on holiday break—right? But guess what. I saw. And now I’m telling.
Taking place between “Unbelievable” and “Wicked,” “Pretty Little Secrets” is a very special “Pretty Little Liars” tale revealing the liars’ never-before-seen misadventures over their junior-year winter break
In the eleventh novel, A is still out there, lurking in the shadows and digging up the liars’ latest secrets…
Emily’s reconnecting with an old flame, one baby step at a time. But is she headed toward true love or another bundle of heartache? Spencer’s learning about the highs and lows of campus life on a trip to Princeton. Aria’s seeing a whole new side to Noel’s dad—and it could drive a wedge between her and Noel. And, for better or worse, Hanna’s getting in touch with her inner A.
Secret by secret, lie by lie, the girls get tangled in A’s dangerous web. Soon A will have enough ammunition to pull the trigger and end the pretty little liars, once and for all….
It’s spring break, and the pretty little liars are trading in Rosewood for a cruise vacation. They want nothing more than to sail into the tropical sunset and leave their troubles behind for one blissful week. But where Emily, Aria, Spencer, and Hanna go, A goes, too. From scuba diving to tanning on the upper deck, A is there, soaking up all their new secrets.
Emily is smooching a stowaway. Aria’s treasure-hunting partner is a little too interested in her booty. Spencer’s going overboard trying to land a new boy. And a blast–or rather, a crash–from Hanna’s past could mean rough waters ahead for everyone.
The liars better tighten their life jackets. A perfect storm is brewing, and if they aren’t careful, A will bury them at sea. . .
I’ve become so obsessed with the Pretty Little Liar’s series. I haven’t watched the show, but these books have me hooked. I’ll get around to having a marathon, but in the meantime I’m preoccupying my time with the novels. What’s on your reading this list?
