I really don t care what anyone says I unabashedly love this series I eagerly await every installment and devour the things within hours Sara Shepard is one of the best if not the best YA author I ve ever had the pleasure of reading, and she creates some of the most Twisted and engaging plots I ve ever seen.
I ll be honest, when I first discovered Twisted was actually going to be a novel I m pretty sure that Wanted was definitely supposed to be the last in the series , I felt feelings of both excitement and uneasiness Pretty much every loose end was tied up in the last novel, and it seemed as if there was no place to go given the ending I figured the new, four book contract was signed simply due to the success of the TV show, and while that may be, that didn t influence the quality of this book Twisted was of the same caliber as the first eight n This series is so archetypical it s not even funny at this point.
And so we enter the third circle of hell.
The prologue begins with some discouraging talk about unspecified people who have nine lives, and the worryingly ominous statement thatnothing in Rosewood is ever really overNot as long as the publisher is still signing the cheques anyway Our four privileged heroines are introduced holidaying in a Jamaican luxury paradise hotel, swimming in their designer bikinis and listening to Redemption Song played on steel drums, either to hint at the upcoming themes of enslavement and oppression or because it s the only reggae song Sara Shepard knows Although this prologue is for once not a flashback to events previously featured in the books we are still treated to many, many pages of plot reiteration, with the result that the whole section istreading water than moving forward Alison s motives for her various crazy This book was not necessary It had ended in Wanted and sealed the series well enough I honestly think Shepard wrote this because of the TV show s success ABC Family probably needed another season hence the book I ll still read the next one but it s just getting old Message to Sara Shepard Don t cry because it s over Smile because it happened Dr Seuss Well at least I m one book closer to finishing the series.
Why am I going to do this to myself AGAIN It s like watching a train wreck in slow motion You know it s going to crash and burn in a dragged out way, but you just can t turn away I hate you Shepard Update Spoilers Alert Shepard never ceases to amaze me Just when you think a series can t be butchered to pieces any, Twisted comes along Take the same stupid storyline, add a couple of new characters, and voila, Shepard has an excuse to drag out this series for another 8 books yep, this mystery ended in a cliffhanger surprise As usual, the twists are predictable and completely impossible Apparently, A is back with a vengeance, and she has the ability to teleport Sending cryptic messages to one Liar in Philly, while simultaneously,a Liar in New York gets a text, too The horrible thing that the Liars did while on vacation was predi ☆ Twisted Á Twisted by Sara Shepard book 9 in the Pretty Little Liars seriesActual Rating 3.
5 5 StarsThis book takes place a year after the last one, and throughout the entirety of this book we are getting hints as to what happened in Jamaica I found myself enjoying Emily s storyline a lot in this book, which is different for me because she s usually my least favourite, and I did not see that particular thing coming Gosh, way to throw that in there randomly Ms Shepard hahahaI really enjoyed this instalment, and I think it s setting the next half of the series off well Order of PLL books from fav to least fav so far 1 Wanted2 Wicked3 Killer4 Twisted5 Unbelievable6 Pretty Little Liars7 Flawless8 Heartless9 Perfect Otro libro m s con el cual me engancho igual que los anteriores Me encant , se me hizo s per ligero, y la verdad es que no puede pasar mucho tiempo sin saber algo sobre pretty little liars Ahora que ya termin la serie, s lo me quedan los libros Le por ah que la trama estaba un poco rebuscada, y algunas cosas que suceden como que se me hacieron un poco forzadas pero bueno, no le quita mucho al libro a decir verdad, los nuevos personajes me encantaron, y los casos de las diferentes protagonistas te entretienen bastante PD A pesar de que aqu no est Ezra, amo que Aria est con Noel.
Es que esta se ora nunca deja de sorprenderme Si el anterior arco me gust , creo que este que adem s es el m s largo de todos, con 8 libros en total , me va a encantar Este primer libro del tercer arco me ha sorprendido bastante, y no iba con grandes expectativas.
Obviamente y como siempre hay partes en las que Sara Shepard no avanza demasiado la trama, o hace que esta parezca m s floja De hecho, me he dado cuenta con Twisted de que utiliza un formato interesante para que la trama avance, y que en este caso ha funcionado genial Y claro, creo que por primera vez en todos los libros de la saga, ha conseguido que las escenas que parec an de relleno tuvieron su importancia en determinado momento Bravo, queen.
En este libro tenemos nuevos personajes como Chloe o Zach que me han encantado Sus tramas han conseguido que me vicie much simo a la no S Been A Year Since The Torturous Notes From A Stopped And The Mystery Of Alison DiLaurentis S Disappearance Was Finally Put To Rest Now Seniors In High School, Aria, Spencer, Hanna, And Emily Are Older, But They Re Not Any Wiser The Pretty Little Liars Have Secrets Than Ever Twisted Secrets That Could Destroy The Perfect Lives They Ve Worked So Hard To Rebuild Aria S Jealous Of Her Boyfriend S New Exchange Student Spencer S Getting A Little Too Cozy With Her Soon ☆ Twisted Û Download by ↠´ Sara Shepard To Be Stepbrother Hanna S One Scandalous Photo Away From Ruining Her Dad S Senate Campaign And Emily Will Do Anything To Get A Swim Scholarship Worst Of All Last Spring Break In Jamaica, They Did Something Unforgivable The Girls Are Desperate To Forget That Fateful Night, But They Should Know Better Than Anyone That All Secrets Wash Ashore Eventually
