Start Books Reviews Review: Pretty Little Liars- 8 volumes

Review: Pretty Little Liars- 8 volumes

Pretty Little Liars it is a hit with the youth audience, and some adults. The series, from ABC Family in the USA and spent in Brazil in Boomerang, has won thousands of fans over its 6 seasons. But what about books? We do Thunder Wave we read the first 8 books, which were kindly provided by the publisher Rocco, and we came to tell you a little more about the series of books by Sara Shepard. In the future we will post about the other books and a comparison of the series vs books.

In the review we talk about the 2 boxes, which have 4 volumes each. The complete series has 16 books and also has three extras, which must be read at least after the first eight, due to Spoiler.

Box Pretty Little Liars

The central story is about the five beautiful teenagers, all from wealthy families, who live in the same city, Rosewood, and study at the College Rosewood Day.

They are:

Spencer, a girl Box Livrosintelligent, competitive and perfectionist, who does not hesitate to use drugs to improve his grades;

Hanna, the girl who always wants to be popular, but who was already overweight, even suffering from bulimia;

Aria, who seems to be the most balanced of all, with a certain artistic approach, and who in the past was called weird, for wearing streaked pink hair;

Emily, the swimmer, but who hesitates to assume who she really is;

And finally, Alison, the most beautiful and popular, with whom boys fall in love and girls aspire to be equal.

Alison was very manipulative and involved the five of them in an event that wound up a student named Jenna, which the five had to hide. She also had a habit of disparaging other girls, making her friends do whatever she wanted.

After Ali's disappearance, the four best friends, full of individual secrets that only Alison knew about, end up being threatened by someone named "A". As the threats arrive, the four are more focused on finding out who is behind the messages, which ends up making them even more neurotic than they already were and even somewhat inconsequential, harming other people with their attitudes. Ironically, while trying to cover up their old secrets, they wind up further and create even worse secrets.

Each volume has a greater focus on one of the characters, we can see that on the cover, and so we get to know a little more about each one of them as events unfold, while we play detective, trying to unravel who the blessed “A” is.

A

Throughout these eight volumes, we are introduced to new characters, some passengers, others more prominent. Of course, some fatalities happen along the way. But one thing is routine, they always make mistakes when they think they discover the identity of the culprit.

Sara Shepard addresses several subjects with different themes, such as bullying, student drug use, homosexuality, bulimia, infidelity, mental problems, minors with drinks and the dispute for popularity in schools. That is, normal things in a world of rich American teenagers ...

The works have an easy and engaging narrative, even if irritating a little with the extreme stupidity of the little liars, it shows the futile life of all the girls in the city, not just the five friends. The author knows how to report everyone's daily life and piques curiosity, both in the mystery of who “A” is, and in the question of how long they will curl up to cover up a lie. Always having a new subject, with one more mess and a surprise at the end of the current reading.

A single unpleasant point is the repetition of information at the beginning of the books, especially for those who read everything at once, but for those who have read the last time it is even a good reminder.

I must point out that it differs a little from the series, both in the appearance of the girls, because Spencer is blonde, Emily redheaded and Aria the tallest of them. Some characters, who probably captivated the audience, are still alive in the adaptation and not in the book. Others do not appear in the story, appearing as a complement only in the series, but every adaptation has its differences.

What I liked most about this edition of Rocco were the covers, they are beautiful and original. They all represent one of the four on the cover like dolls, which suggestively look like Barbies. and on the back cover as a person. In the first box we see the doll with full body and in the second, a half face that is complete to the human.

Capa Pretty Little Liars

Despite the stupidity of the protagonists being irritating, it was a reading that impressed me, because I ended up liking it more than I expected. The theme ended up not being as youthful as you might have imagined, and the mystery really gets you.

The books are launched in the following order, with three more extras.

1- Evil (Pretty Little Liars)

2- Impeccable (Flawless) -

3- Perfect (Perfect)

4- Unbelievable (Unbelievable)

5- Wicked (Wicked)

6- Destroyers (Killer)

7- Merciless (Heartless)

8- Dangerous (Wanted)

9- Treacherous (Twisted)

10- Relentless (Ruthless)

11- Stunning (Stunning)

12- Devastating (Burned)

13- Hammers (Crushed)

14- Lethal (Deadly)

15- Toxic - (Not yet released in Brazil)

16- Vicious - (Not yet released in Brazil)

  1. Oiii, I was very pleased with these books a long time ago. But, I don't think I would read for the simple reason that there are so many books and I usually don't have good memories of such a great series haha

    Kisses, I loved the post and the idea of doing it.

  2. Hello all well?

    Despite being a very famous series, I don't really want to read. Adaptations are always different, there's no way. But I believe that they were not so bad after all. Rocco really did the editing.

  3. Oie Kadlu,
    I've read all of the series, I'm completely in love with pretty little liars, both TV series and literary. I'm even rereading, I love Sara's writing, she makes me addicted to her books haha
    I liked the review and fell in love with their boxes * - *
    Kisses

  4. Look, I loved the covers, I had heard something about this edition, but this is the first time I stop to read it and find out more and I confess that I was curious, because it must be incredible to intend to read it.

  5. I knew about the series both on paper and on TV, but I never really got excited about reading or watching, because I always thought it had a very adolescent footprint, but for what reason you are even cool to read because of the mystery. I was curious. ^^

  6. well, particularly I find the covers very ugly… and the series doesn’t do my style, so there’s no chance to watch or read the books… not to mention that I hate protagonists & #039; stupid & #039;…

    flower, the term would be homosexuality, okay? it is pejorative to use homosexuality ...

    Bjs. 😀

  8. This series is definitely not for me. Even more with 16 books ????? My God! Hahahaha
    I am very curious to know this stop by A. Who is it and everything. But I would settle for a spoiler and that's it! hehehehe

  9. OIE
    I really admire those who have the determination to read this whole series, because I unfortunately couldn't, I think the TV series will be more practical kkkkkk
    The covers are really beautiful, I would buy just to decorate my kkkkk bookshelf THAT IS FULL.
    But I loved the review, clarified many of my doubts, if the series was small I would read it for sure.

  10. I had a co-worker who was addicted to both the books and the series. I don't know if I would read it because I get lazy when I see a huge series. This question of repeating information in all the books happens in Meg Cabot's Mediator too, it is chto even when reading everything at once.
    Kisses!

  11. I know the tv series, but it didn't win me over. I can't stand the actresses who play the roles. But you are absolutely right it is a success among the young audience. I didn't know the book series was so big.

    Kisses!

  12. I didn't know the series has so many books, I was surprised. My cousin is addicted to the TV series and even told me the ending. I don't have much interest in reading or watching, but I loved the idea of the covers.

  14. I confess that I was never interested in reading the books despite being a big fan of the series. Perhaps it is exactly because of this fact ... Your text was very cool, you managed to summarize the 8 books without giving spirler or suppressing too much information. Love the covers too!
    See you! Naked.

  16. Hello, people like I am uninformed… I didn't know the series was based on books, I loved the covers of the editions and the idea of the series is very good. Nice to talk about books and characters… Bjs

  17. Wow, you need to breathe to read this series, huh! 16 volumes and three extras! I found, in fact, the covers very beautiful, but the books, at the moment, do not interest me, because not even the series managed to arouse my curiosity. But I loved your review, and it is always good to know the books to be able to indicate them, because I know people who enjoy the series a lot.

  18. Hi, I find this series very interesting and, although I haven't read or watched the TV series, I'm super curious to find out who A. is. I want to read these books someday. Great post!

  19. Hello, I always see comments on this series of books and most of the time, people prefer adaptation. I don't know why, but I never felt like reading or watching.

    Congratulations on the review!

    Literal reading

  20. Hello all well?
    I know the TV series, but I never got to follow it. I saw some episodes and even thought it was cool.
    I have no desire to read the books, as it is quite extensive and I am not able to start such long series, in this case, I prefer to do a TV series marathon. But I think these covers are beautiful 😉

    Kisses
    Reader Always

  21. Hi!
    I was never interested in reading the books, but as soon as the series was released I started to follow. The truth is that I abandoned it from the second to the third season.
    With your review and brief introduction of the story, I see that you really have a lot to offer, in addition to the mystery that involves the character “A”, but at the same time it seems repetitive and tiring, so I would not give either of them another chance .
    I loved the post, congratulations! = D

  22. Hi,

    I started watching the first season, but I stopped and I don’t know why, because I was loving the series, and the books I’m dying to read them all and I’m sure I’ll love reading, because I have so many books sometimes I am afraid the author will get lost in the narrative, as it can get a little tiring, but other than that I find a valid reading for anyone who is a fan of the TV series or for those who want to know only the books.

  23. Hi ^^

    I have a certain desire to read the books, although I don't feel like watching the series, but it bothers me a little to know that there are so many books and that maybe it will take me a long time to handle ($$$) hehee

  25. Hi!

    I had seen the books before, but I didn't know what it was about. It is not my favorite genre, neither book nor series. But I think if it were shorter I would even read it because of the mystery. And as you commented on the stupidity of the characters, this is something that irritates me as protagonists. I like strong protagonists.

    I thought it was fantastic how you managed to review the whole series at once. Congratulations

  26. Hi how are you? It is impossible not to like and get attached to these five friends. I discovered one day unintentionally and I didn't stop following it. I confess that I have not yet read the books, I follow only the series, and it is possible to imagine what we can expect from the books. Great review. Kisses, Érika

  27. I already knew the series, but I never had an interest in books and I still do not, but maybe one day I won't read it, I find it interesting, but it's not a read for now.

    Hugs and see you!

  28. Hi, how are you?
    I have a friend who loves the series, but hasn't read the books yet. I want to do both, because I am very curious, and I find the covers of these books very beautiful.

    Congratulations on the review.
    Kisses

  29. Hi,
    I bought these two boxes, but I haven't stopped to read yet. However, reading the review I was curious, not least because I have a habit of giving a good spacing between one volume and another, so as not to get tired of the author's writing. Thanks for the tip and I will try to start reading and discover so much mystery. But as the series is long… sahushua… let's go.
    I really like the series, I intend to follow it again, good to know that it differs from books.

    Good reading.
    Kisses

  30. I am VERY INTERESTED in watching the series, but I have an agreement with myself to never watch films / series before reading their respective books, only that I am very afraid to buy all these books and not be able to read. That happened with The Chronicles of Ice and Fire (Game of trhones) stuck in the last book, I can't get out of half, and look that the collection only has 5 books !! Imagine if it were 16, like Pretty Little Liars ???? !!! If anyone knows of any tips to be able to read a long series I accept, see? I have a lot of problems with that, I always get tired of the story.

Malorie is a rational and well-tied sequence that plays with common fears and manages to hold the reader's attention from beginning to end.
