Fun, but a little repetitive

What I Liked: 1) Reading PLL is like reading a tabloid, for me. Like, you can't possibly imagine how all of these crazy things are happening, yet you can't stop reading. I love being able to indulge in something like that every once in a while. It is unapologetically unbelievable, and I love it for that. Like one of those horrible reality shows when you wonder, "are you like that in real life, or are you only acting that way because there is a camera on you?" 2) Once again, we were met with more questions than answers. That's something I like about the series, but there was something different about it in Ruthless than some of the others. In Ruthless, we were met with a definite answer about one of the issues. I thought at one point everything might be all over, but of course it can't be. It was almost as if there was a story within a story. And while the main story continues, the other one was over. 3) I liked the direction the plot is going, though there were a few times I questioned the motivations of the four girls.

What I Didn't Like: 1) It almost felt like we were reliving parts of some of the other books. That was one thing that really just bothered me. I would be reading along and think, wait, didn't this already happen, just with another character? That disappointed me some, because I've always found Miz Shephard's storylines to be unique and creative. 2) Why does every book start with, "well, I don't really hang out with my old friends anymore..." How many times are they going to have a girl break-up, only to have A tie them back together. When will they figure out they are stronger as a group? *shakes fist at make believe characters*

Overall thoughts: For fans of the Pretty Little Liars series, I think you'll be surprised to find some repetitive storylines, but pleased to find that Spencer, Aria, Hanna, and Emily are still up to their old habits. I like it best when the girls are working together to solve their issues, and I found that to be lacking in this book. Here's hoping that in the next book, our favorite little liars will bring their friendship back!

Of course you're going to see the fangirls out there who will rate this book five stars just because its a PLL book. I will be honest, i loved all 9 books. They were full of suspense and lots of juicy secrets. This time, not so much. It read more like a story. There's no "wow" moment and no great cliff hanger. I think Sara was going to stop PLL series after the whole "Ali was really Courtney" thing but PLL got popular and Sara was paid more. Maybe she ran out of ideas. Her contract still has more books so i'm hoping shes not rushing these. Another thing i'm sick of is the repeating. I know all about Ali, i know about about Emily being called Killer etc! It's as if Sara forgot we read the other books. Its a waste of ink and page numbers to repeat yourself so many times. Just because this book wasn't as great, it won't stop me from finishing the series. Crossing my fingers for a better book next time.

    I love this book!

    Sara Shepard is complete genius. I adore this series and this book is amazing! So... Spencer has a guilty conscience about what she did to her friend over the summer, Aria's love life is forever changing, Emily thinks she found a new best friend, and Hanna is in love with the enemy.... I wish my life was this exciting! Oh yeah. I almost forgot... there's a psychotic stalker named "A" out to get them. But don't worry the figure out who it is...or do they??????

    Yaaaaaaaaaay!!!

    In Pretty Little Liars, the next book is always better. Thus, I shall probably read Ruthless approximately twenty threee consecutive times. I read Twisted nine. I agree with thee person who said they were obsessed and it IS a drug. However, I beg to differ on the Bieber Fever part. December 6th is sooooooooooo far away!

    Haha ;)

    Awww. Poor little liars. Let's re-cap, shall we? Spencer was high on drugs all summer and sold out a 'friend'. Hasn't she learned from Macbeth? No one gets away with anything. At least while I'm around! Emily found a new friend to kiss, little did she know Kelsey was out for revenge. Hanna was kissing the enemy, then again, who isn't the enemy? Aria tried something new, and old. Then there was Tabitha. So she was in a mental hospital, doesn't that explain so much? Just wait. You have no idea what happens next. Good luck, your gonna need it!
    Kisses!

    Love

    This is an amazing series. I really lucked out when my best friend told me about the series and let me borrow her copy of the first book! The series never ceases to impress me and I love the plot. Although I think this series is amazing there are a few moments of repetativeness. I greatly enjoy this series and I recommend it to anyone in need of a new obsession. Word from the wise: avoid reading this book at night, I know all too well that you wont sleep too soundly...
