Book Review: Perfect – A Pretty Little Liars Novel

Posted March 26, 2012 by @Angelized_1st in Books, Entertainment / 0 Comments

Book 3 in the Pretty Little Liars series is titled, “Perfect,” but the lives of the blackmailed foursome are anything but.

The ex best friends of Rosewood Day seemed to have it all until someone knew the secrets they’ve wanted to keep hidden. Is one of them murder?

What I loved about Perfect is that it is very different from Pretty Little LiarsYes, there were some incidents that also happened in the show, but they were altered. One of the biggest changes is that Hannah, Aria, Spencer, and Emily still haven’t renewed their friendship.

In the books the tests from “A” forced the girls to work together, thus renewing their relationship. In the book this hasn’t been the case. Another thing I am enjoying is how much darker the book is from the show. The parents are even more unlikable. The problems even more real. Now that the girls’ lives are seemingly destroyed, where do they go from here? Guess I’ll find out when I read book 4, “Unbelievable.” Since I just got on the waitlist for Unbelievable, I’ll read one of the 2 library books I was just emailed. First up is Bloodlines by Richelle Mead.

Bloodlines is the first book in the Vampire Academy spin-off series. Sydney, the Alchemist, who helped Rose Hathaway fight Strigoi is the narrator. Being human she has a different outlook from Rose as she lives on the fringes of the Moroi world, but also is forced to be a part of it. In Bloodlines, Sydney is joined by Jill Dragomir (Lissa’s sister), Adrian Ivashkov, and Eddie Castile whom we all know from VA. Since I loved that series so much, I hope I’ll enjoy this as well. Here’s a synopsis:

I wasn’t free of my past, not yet.

Sydney’s blood is special. That’s because she’s an alchemist—one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of human and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives. But the last encounter Sydney had with vampires got her in deep trouble with the other alchemists. And now with her allegiances in question, her future is on the line.

When Sydney is torn from her bed in the middle of the night, at first she thinks she’s still being punished for her complicated alliance with dhampir Rose Hathaway. But what unfolds is far worse.  Jill Dragomir—the sister of Moroi Queen Lissa Dragomir—is in mortal danger, and the Moroi must send her into hiding. To avoid a civil war, Sydney is called upon to act as Jill’s guardian and protector, posing as her roommate in the unlikeliest of places—a human boarding school in Palm Springs, California. The last thing Sydney wants is to be accused of sympathizing with vampires. And now she has to live with one.

The Moroi court believe Jill and Sydney will be safe at Amberwood Prep, but threats, distractions, and forbidden romance lurk both outside—and within—the school grounds. Now that they’re in hiding, the drama is only just beginning.
