I thought Flawless was a really good book. It refreshes your memory from the first book, Pretty Little Liars, very well. The author gives you kind of a summary of what happened n the first book before each even with each person occurs. Sometimes the book is a little hard to follow because of all the different characters and stories each of them have. But, I think that is one of the things that make it so good. There are also a lot of unexpected events that occurred and made this book very good. It was hard to even put it down. There is also a lot of mystery in this book. Spencer, Aria, Hanna, and Emily all get strange texts, IMs, and emails from a person named A who claims to know everything about them; even their deepest and darkest secrets. Like, what really happened on the night of the Jenna Thing, what Spencer's dad really does at "work", and who Emily and Aria really like. The end is also very unexpected and interesting. Hopefully they are one step closer to finding out who A really is.

The cover:
I like it. It’s not bad neither good. However, I do love the font *_*. And if you didn’t know, this is Hanna Marin on the over. What’s cool, is that on the back cover you can see the real model for Hanna, it’s done in all the books.

The storyline:
Where should I begin?
Let me get directly to the point after the summary.
Summary:
Flawless picks up right where Pretty Little Liars left off. In this sequel, we get to know more about The Jenna Thing, Toby and each girl’s secret.
Aria is no longer seeing Ezra, and somehow she gets caught up with Sean, Hanna’s ex-boyfriend. And her family’s situation is only getting worse.
Spencer’s attitude has completely changed. She’s now dating Wren, her sister’s ex, and she thinks everything is still fine. Until, her deepest secret is going to be out. And then things crumple down.
Emily is really messed up. She can’t make up her mind about her feelings. She becomes friends with Toby, and finds herself really liking him. Thinking by doing that she’s proving to herself that she’s not gay. Well, guess faith had other plans for her.
Finally, Hanna is dealing with her own demons. Not that this isn’t enough, her father comes back to add fuel to the already strong flames. Everything seems to be working against her.
And guess who’s ruining and manipulating them? Of course you’d guess, it’s “A”.
The girls meet and actually talk to each other, in the last chapters, in Foxy, a charity party, where they seem to not be able to find Emily and they think she’s in serious danger.
the book ends with them finally acting like friends and thinking that they’ve got everything figured out and there’s no more “A” until shim (a.k.a Him/She) sends a very threatening SMS to Emily. And that’s the end.
What I Liked/Loved:
- The storyline. It was amazing.
- The suspense and twists were unexpected.
- The way the chapters were laid and how each chapter had a very interesting title. It’s like I had to decipher the title and make possibilities of what might happen.
- The ending :).
What I disliked:
- Sometimes I would find the story fast paced and other times it’d be really slow.
- The characters were just not reliable. I know there are teenagers like them, but it was just too much.

Conclusion:
To be honest, I wish I’ve read the books before watching the show. Throughout the book I’ve been either spoiled or bored because I kind of knew what was going to happen.
Also, I read it in a very stressful and confusing time, so I didn’t enjoy it really and kept going back and reading each page because the next day I couldn’t remember what I read the day before.
So yeah, this is why the book was ruined for me.

The point? This book is really good. And I’m sure if I read it, like in nine months, I will probably give it 4 or 5 stars.

One more advice: Don’t read spoiling reviews or blurbs before you read the book, they might ruin the experience and the suspense element.

What’s next? Perfect of course!! I want more of “A”!!! :D.
