This week I finished the first book of the series.
Synopsis from Amazon.com:
Gossip thrives amid the Mercedes-Benzes, mega mansions, and perfectly manicured hedges in the exclusive town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania. Behind their big Gucci sunglasses, beneath their perfectly pressed Polos, everyone has something to hide, especially high school juniors Spencer, Aria, Emily, and Hanna. Spencer covets her sister's gorgeous new boyfriend. Aria is having an affair with her English teacher. Emily is infatuated with the new girl at school. And Hanna is using some ugly tricks to stay beautiful. Deeper and darker still is a horrible secret the girls have shared since sixth grade—a secret they thought was safe forever.
Then the girls start receiving threatening messages signed by someone named "A." Could "A" be Alison, the ultra-popular girl who disappeared three years earlier? Alison was their best friend. She knew everything about them. But if Alison isn't "A," who is? And how could anyone else know so much about the bad girls they were and the bad girls they've become? Suddenly, their secrets—the big ones, the little ones, even the long-buried ones—no longer seem so secret. Suddenly, nothing is safe in Rosewood.
If you love the show you'll love the book. I'm on the waiting list for Book 2. I think I found quite a few books to read this summer considering there are 10 out now, with an extra book out. The 11th comes out this month.
Definitely a quick read, I finished this one in two days. There are some differences between the show and the book, though mainly details that don't seem to matter much. The descriptions of the girls don't match the actresses that play that, but that's ok. A few other differences but it doesn't take away from the book as a whole. Can't wait to read the next one.
Please tell me I'm not the only one addicted to this show! Have you read the books?
