Flawless by Sara Shepard

Flawless (Pretty Little Liars, #2)
By Sara Shepard
Publisher: HarperCollins e-books, 2008
352 pages, Kindle Edition
Date Finished: 7/11/2010
Genres: Young Adult, Chick Literature, Realistic Fiction, Romance, Mystery, Coming of Age

First Line of Book: "You know that boy who lives a few doors down from you who's just the creepiest person alive?"

Review: Flawless was even better than the series debut, Pretty Little Liars. Even more thrills, more romance and friend prob's, and mystery after mystery. Who is "A"? Could they alwys be right around the corner? Is their anyway to solve the girls' personal problems??

This book ... wow. That's basically the rest of that sentence. If you loved PLL, you're really going to kiss Flawless all over (Caution: if, like myself, you are reading an eBook, this might be a little difficult; please -- don't injure yourself).

I have to say, this took me a little less time to read than the first book, probably because there was always something that I wanted solved. Then: WAM! I finished the book. I immediately bought and started the next book.

Like I said before, Flawless gives readers more thrills that I think are the best I've ever read; a little more teen romance that keeps the ball of "hate" rolling; the constant gaining/losing friends cycle; and more mysteries that might lead directly to "A." You're always trying to figure out who knows what, if that means what you thin that means, why she's acting like a baby. Believe me, if you love drama, you gotta get into this series before it's too late!


Quotes from the Book:

"One of Melissa's nerdy friends, Liana, had a crush on him, and once made Spencer deliver a secret admirer note to him at the espresso bar where he worked. Spencer recalled thinking that Darren had biceps the size of Chunky Soup cans."

"Sean had tucked her in. She'd blown snot on his shoulder. She'd wailed like an insane person. What better way to lose the guy you like than slobber all over him?"

"Back inside the tent, some of the boys were having a break-dancing contest. Noel Kahn was trying to do a kickworm, and Mason Byers was doing some sort of butt-spin. Wasn't this supposed to be a civilized function?"

"He swung into his car and put the siren on. If the neighbors didn't know he'd been there before, they sure did know."

"And then, ... she'd woken up here, in her bed. Someone must have carried her in, and Aria, who slept like the dead, hadn't noticed a thing."

It's funny because i recall that to be exactly like high school. I think that was why I hated it so. I wonder why it is that I hated high school so much, but I LOVE YA books the most. I live for the teen drama. Maybe I'm trying to relive my life???! ha! Prolly! Excellent review Z!

Leo, I'm jealous, I've wanted to visit Rome for ages. I hope you had an excellent time!

Thanks Jen! IDK; maybe you are trying to relive your high school years. Can't be too sure on that one. :)

Ugh, I really have to start these books soon! And yes I just used (ugh) for the first time ever. The review makes me want to skip one a go to two.

And is there ever any hint of who A is? It's starting to get to me on the show. I'm always thinking who's A who's A. Maybe I'll just skip them all and go to the last one, lol. Just kidding. :) But I seriously got to start the books.

Zakiya LadyWings said...

Yepps, Kate: You really need to start the books!! Haha. But no, they don't ever give out any hints of who A is... Actually. Well, I can't tell that. It would give away book #4 :). Get reading!

Congrats on using "ugh" for the first time! Lol.
