Burned Pretty Little Liars 12 Sara ShepardIt is revealed that prior to the events of Twisted the Liars covered up Hanna s involvement in a car accident that left another irl Madison badly injured While on a school sponsored cruise in the Caribbean the Liars uncover clues that suggest A is than one person They begin to suspect Naomi Zeigler of being A after she befriends Hanna who is unaware that Madison is Naomi s cousin and attempts to sabotage Spencer s new relationship Aria becomes friends with a boy named Graham only to discover he is Tabitha s ex boyfriend leading the Liars come to believe that Naomi and Graham are working together as A Meanwhile Emily falls for a stowaway Jordan unaware that she is a thief on the run from the authoritiesAfter an explosion on the boat the Liars Smoking with Crohn's go off on their own to bury evidence of their connection to Tabitha Tabitha s locket which A had planted for Noel to find A tampers with their lifeboat nearly stranding them in the middle of the ocean The near death experience pushes theirls into wanting to confess about killing Tabitha However as they make plans to come clean about everything they discover that they were not responsible for Tabitha s death at all She had been bludgeoned to death by AThe Liars finally come to believe that A is in fact Alison as Emily reveals that she may have helped Alison escape the burning Poconos house in Wanted Suspiciously though Naomi was at Gayle s funeral 2016 07051399 Okay here s the deal I know I m about the farthest away a reader can be from the target audience of the Pretty Little Liars novels but you uys know that it s still one of my favorite series nonetheless If you scroll through each of the books there s a ood chance you ll find a review of me A Guide for Murdered Children gushing lovingly over it That being said this series needs to end I m still trying to figure out if I m beginning to like this series less and less because a it is in fact decreasing in uality or b it s staying exactly the same and I simply know all of Sara Shepard s storytelling uirks After some thought I think it s a mixture of bothMaybe there was some uality to the first eight books that made me not notice but as I wasoing through Burned I found myself predicting the outcome for each of the characters as soon as they waltzed onto the page I mean at this point any PLL reader should know that if Sara Shepard spends two hundred pages attempting to make the reader believe a character is A the big twist at the end will be that said character isn t actually A at allHowever knowing storytelling patterns is one thing but the plot progression in this series arch books 9 12 has been laughably bad and it was most noticeable in this installment In my opinion the original series I m now referring to books 1 8 as the original series since when this whole mess is over I m probably just A Gallagher Wedding going to pretend books 9 14 never even happened worked so well because there was a close knit cast of characters whom I actually cared about which is why the deaths and other plot twists were so shocking At this point though Sara Shepard is just tossing in random extras in order to keep the plot moving along However I don t care thatirl I met thirty pages ago not only might have been unintentionally killed by Hanna but that she is also Illuminate: Ignite Change Through Speeches, Stories, Ceremonies and Symbols gasp the long lost cousin ofirl who s been in this series forever but only Timeless Moon gained any kind of relevance ten pages ago or that boy I met five pages ago is the ex boyfriend ofirl who was unintentionally killed by Aria By the way when did it become so easy to kill people These irls can t walk out to the mailbox any without killing someone or at the very least maiming them for life This series worked so much better when the plot elements were fairly believable Aria dating her teacher Hanna having an eating disorder etc It s becoming horribly apparent that Sara Shepard doesn t know where she wants to take this story especially since Burned didn t even progress the series overall plot except for a small development about Tabitha s death at the end even though she like so many others was just an extra randomly thrown in order to create some kind of storyline Tis a sad day when I have to ive a book in one of my favorite series a two star rating After finishing this book I m starting to lose faith in the plot What started as an interesting thrilling novel about five irls keeping non life threatening secrets turned into a murderous spree It s just not believable any I know life is hard when you are teenager but we re talking about five teenagers who have committed serious crimes They re just not hiding petty secrets these pretty little liars are hiding murders ex convicts car accident secrets and endangering other people s safety They re not innocent victims any they are criminals I mean can you tell me of a single teenager that knows exactly how to blow up the boat in the boiling room Or how a teenage irl was able to hide her pregnancy from her friends and family I m sorry but it s not possible I know there s a lot of crazy people in this world but the crimes are just The Age of Light getting crazier It doesn t feel like a young adult book any when a teenager isoing on a killing spree I m still finishing the series because after L'opticien de Lampedusa getting this far there is no point in uitting I also want to desperately know who A is in this installment But I am no entirely happy with the direction the plot isoing At this rate the TV show series is way interesting than the last few installments and I still believe the series should have ended when we learned about Courtney After that the series has just Doomsday Men: The Real Dr. Strangelove and the Dream of the Superweapon gone downhill for me These books are cray Can t wait for 13 and 14 so I can finally figure out this shit A typical trashy Pretty Little Liars book where I yell at the characters for their stupidity throughout the entire thing I sort of hate these books for being so awful but then I need to know how it all ends too and so BURNED Are theyoing to be in another fireIf this is true please just take my brain cells nowPlus that s the cover Burned by Sara Shepard book 12 in the Pretty Little Liars seriesLet s just jump right in shall we okaySo my favourite aspect of this book was that it took place on a boat which was such a refreshing and fun idea for a book and also for these charactersI also loved the relationships between the irls and their partners I found them all super cute and fun in this oneI enjoyed all the irls plot lines in this instalment as well as the overall plot line in the bookThe ending was awesome and I just really enjoyed how all that went down A Whoops!: Why Everyone Owes Everyone and No One Can Pay got extremely creative with the text messages in this one and it s my favourite book in the series so far in terms of A messages I absolutely loved themThis is my favourite book out of this particular 4 book arc in the series followed by Twisted then Ruthless and Stunning My favourite arc of the series so far is books 5 8 followed by this one 9 12 then 1 4 but I have very high hopes for the last arc which is 13 16 DI m so excited to continue on with this series but I m so sad it soing to end soon what will I do with my lifeOrder of PLL books from fav to least fav so far1 Wanted2 Wicked3 Killer4 Burned5 Pretty Little Liars6 Twisted7 Unbelievable 8 Ruthless9 Heartless10 Flawless11 Stunning12 Perfect When will it end Not whilst someone s buying themThe preuel seuence features a flashback of a past event which occurred somewhere in the middle of all the other murders and escapades we have heard about but has not been mentioned at all so far to our four idiot heroines coming together to save Hanna from being arrested for drink driving and crashing the car of a stranger named Madison she met only hours previously even though Hanna isn t actually drunk The car is still operational and Madison is uninjured and passed out but rather than just leaving her to sort the mess out Hanna decides to call both an ambulance and her friends for assistance creating a race to see who will arrive at the scene first When the Michelangelo: His Epic Life girls win the race they then choose to carry Madison right around the car and back to the driver s seat rather than just push her slightly to the left Thisoes wrong when they apparently manage to break her neck whilst moving her and then they all run off like cowards and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge get away with the whole thing since there were no witnesses at the bar where Hanna and Madison spent the night But wait Someone knows Guess who it is Yep A 3 Incidentally a secondary mystery is the identity of the driver of the car which drove Hanna off the road Any ideas who might be responsibleBack in the present day everyone is preparing for the Desperate Plot Stretching Cruise they ve all decided to take and referencing on trend things like Dr Who and such There s also the matter of Tabitha theirl who they murdered ages ago but nobody has bothered to investigate properly Emily rehashes all her many problems before spotting a pretty irl and deciding that none of them matter Spencer Aria and Hanna all HAVE BOYFRIENDS THE TEENS ARE ALL WAITED ON HAND boyfriends The teens are all waited on hand foot eat luxury organic food and once listen to the only Caribbean music Shepard is "aware of Bob Marley Nothing happens except for the appearance of many banners bearing eco messages and people "of Bob Marley Nothing happens except for the appearance of many banners bearing eco messages and people they can hear A 3 laughing behind doors which they then don t openThe irl Emily has instantly fallen in love with turns out to be Jordan a stowaway who bypassed the only just mentioned tight security and ended up hiding in Emily s cupboard along with the cosmetics she stole in order to not Making Sense of Leadership: Exploring the Five Key Roles Used by Effective Leaders go without re applying make up for than 3 hours Spencer is doing the jealous exirlfriend storyline this time around Aria somehow manages to end up having to do a Scavenger Hunt with Tabitha the maybe dead maybe Ali irl s boyfriend which is pretty bad luck Joining in the stupid coincidences Hanna is busy making her usual suddenly becoming best friends with her worst enemy mistake when she realises that old foe Naomi is the cousin of Madison the irl from the prologue s Stupid Car Incident which A 3 now knows about for obvious reasons Hanna therefore assumes Naomi is A 3 which of course means she definitely isn t Aria instead believes that the culprit is Tabitha s ex Graham which Gandhi Churchill: The Epic Rivalry that Destroyed an Empire and Forged Our Age gets him off the hook too Aria decides that the best way to assuage heruilt about killing Tabitha is to hang around with her boyfriend pretend to sympathise with him and manipulate his love life whilst not revealing that she is in fact the killer This sounds like the behaviour of a Les Innocents gloating sociopath but it does allow her to discover that Tabitha was committed to the same unlikely mental institution as Alison Courtney Hanna and any other teenageirl whose family wanted rid of them Hanna Aria swap suspicious reA 3 which doesn t make either suspect any likely Emily and her new irlfriend steal a boat Spencer is pushed into a pool by Naomi because she s jealous of her boyfriend but said boyfriend doesn t seem It's spring break and the pretty little liars are trading in Rosewood for a cruise vacation They want nothing than to sail into the tropical sunset and leave their troubles behind for one blissful week But where Emily Aria Spencer and .
Hool and numerous other private schools are oing too There is brief mention that they re holidaying near Jamacia where Aria killed Tabitha but that s forgone because everyone wants a tan in their high class brand bikinis and to flirt with all the orgeous toned boys on the cruise So the cruise is rossly extravagant for some reason You would think an Eco Cruise would know be frugal But no we have a casino a theater where Cirue De Soliel are performing nightly a The Lives of Stay-at-Home Fathers: Masculinity, Carework and Fatherhood in the United States gym with nineteen treadmills why this fact is important I have no idea a yoga studio a hair salon and spa thirteen restaurants eleven lounges a rock climbing wall and a wave pool Later it s also revealed the cruise has an auarium with endangered sea species AND and organic farm complete with chicken coops alpaca pens and areenhouse From what I know pets aren t enerally allowed on cruises I uess rules are different for farm animalsHanna is rooming with Naomi who is someone she has hated for every book I ve read so far but because she s popular and Hanna s an outcast right now Hanna decides they ll be BFF s so Hanna can be cool againAria and her boyfriend Noel want to do everything together despite actually wanting to do anything together It s a one week cruise why is it such a big deal that he Gone: The Disappearance of Claudia Lawrence and Her Father's Desperate Search for the Truth go surfing and sheo scavenger hunting Why do they have to do the same thing Aria suddenly reveals she has never actually learned to swim despite having swum in Jamacia with no trouble as well as every time the 1,000 Awesome Writing Prompts girls went to the beach or a pool party in the past twelve booksEmily wastes no time lusting after the firstirl she sees Jordan who turns out to be a stowaway with nowhere to sleep so Emily offers her the other bed in her cabin Since Emily s assigned roommate is a whore from a Catholic school whom Emily also lusts after who apparently dumped Justin Beiber and invites Moonrise (Snowfall, guys back to her room in the same sentance she meets them Emily figures the whore won t be using her bed andives it to her new obsession JordanSchool trip with school students presumably supervised by teachers right But whores will be whores in the PLL world I would think that on a cruise where the majority of the uests if not all of them are high school students someone would have thought maybe to take the minibars out of the roomsHanna has a memory of when she met Madison the drunk irl whom had a neck snapping moment in the opening of the novel and seems to think you eat a margarita with your hands because after her drink arrives we re told Hanna licked her fingers clean Hanna is then annoyed that she s thinking about that Hello, Snow! girl she might have murdered it s totally ruining her awesome trip It s later mentioned that this whole car crash memory thing actually happened the year before just as Emily found out she was pregnant So almost killing Madison hasn t affected them at all until now as is Sara s want to create new mysteriesSo far we haven t heard from A The only message is actually Spencer thinking about what A might say if she had left a message Theirls however are shocked that A might be on board and can t fathom how that could happen Clearly they haven t been paying attention for twelve books I m sure each of them has uttered the phrase A is everywhere at least once but they seem completely dumbfounded when this statement appears to be true Anyway the usual string of PLL coincidences happens Naomi is actually Madison s cousin The boy Aria was randomly paired with for her scavenger hunt Graham was Tabitha s boyfriend Hanna discovers this fact about Naomi during a secret party on board with plenty of rum apparently all it took was paying off one chaperone and these teen boys and A Little Dinner Before the Play girls can drink and party with ease Whilst comparing fake IDs which everyone in these novels seems to have Hanna sees Naomi s ID and recnognizes Madison She freaks outets a message from A tells the other Mastering the Art of Saying No Without Feeling Guilty: Tips, Techniques and Strategies girls and boom Naomi is suggested as our new A which is a clear sign that she s not The Shitty Little Liarsather on a deck and discuss Naomi as A and Hanna conveniently reveals that though they were in the middle of nowhere when Hanna crashed Madison s car and they may have paralyzed her Naomi s house was just over the hill Spencer recalls they left the scene before the ambulance arrived yet they mentioned seeing the "EMT S EXIT THEIR VEHICLE SOTHE "s exit their vehicle soThe also suspect Graham as new A but Aria rejects Spencer s suggestion to stay away from him cos she feels Yuganta, The End Of An Epoch guilty for killing hisirlfriend Aria s exact words are I can t just drop him I d feel terrible But she did kill his Once a Wicked Lady: A Biography of Margaret Lockwood girlfriend Spencer s roommate is described as uiet and bookish so she s not ever seen again Reefer is back from the last book a pot smoking weirdo Spencer met at Princeton whom she s obsessed with who also happens to be BFF s with Naomi Spencer is taking scuba diving as her cruise hobby but not to worry about her learning She s been certified since she was 14 Reefer s certified too Which is odd cos I don t recall Spencer ever scuba diving in the past twelve booksOh and I noticed this A million years ago Mona as A had forced her to confront Naomi and Riley last year and admit she had an eating disorder A million years ago last year Back to the story Emily and Jordan steal a boat and then make out which makes Emily instantly in love Then Emily sees something on the news about Jordan being a Preppy Thief complete with footage of her in an orange jumpsuit handcuffs and ankle shackles I don t think the police are allowed to ankle shackle an 18 year old for stealing but whatever Aria is thrilled at playing matchmaker for the boy whoseirlfriend she killed even when A sends her pictures apparently taken from the bottom of the cliff that show Aria shoving Tabitha off it Aria can t Forbidden Reading get the photos off her phone and frets about the teachers on the trip seeing them butiven they haven t noticed the secret parties teenage sex underage drinking and boat stealing I m A Northern Line Minute: The Northern Line guessing they re not paying that much attention Teachers need vacations too rightHanna is still sure that Naomi is A but that doesn t stop her from spending all her free time with her Shopping karaoke talking about boys planning an act for the concert at the end of the cruise But Hanna s an idiot in the books so I m not surprised Hanna and Naomi sneak away from the cruise ando to a VIP club where a bouncer lets these two underage Future Focus girls in with no uestion A bartender then serves two underageirls drinks with no uestion And creepy older Major Problems in American Urban and Suburban History: Documents and Essays guys in the barawk and holler at these underage irls

promptly finds emails on Naomi s computer between Naomi and Madison saying they ve been searching for who crashed up Naomi s car So Hanna again is now positive Naomi is A Spencer decides its a smart thing to stay away from Reefer since he s BFF s with Naomi but then the smell of Reefer lemon and salt make her roan and he kisses her So screw it if he s in league with New A Upon confronting Jordan

dramatic climax occurs when a boiler suddenly explodes only a few feet Aria without hurting her The explosion is nonetheless so serious that it necessitates the evacuation of an entire massive luxury cruise liner In a display of astounding stupidity the irls decide to steal a lifeboat row to a cave famous for its scuba diving opportunities and hide Tabitha s necklace underneath some coral Why the hell this plan would even occur to anyone let alone seems sensible to four people is unfathomable Despite the difficulty of launching a lifeboat without training and euipment the cruise staff and FBI agents who surround them and the fact that they are actually witnessed by potential A 3 Naomi they still o through with this plan Even stupidly all four of them decide to et into the water even though only Spencer is actually diving which inevitably means that their raft has been sabotaged by the time they return Just once couldn t my worst fears about the predictable nonsensicality of the plot turn out to be unfoundedThe highlight of the book comes when the irls in a sudden moment of clarity realise the true horror of their ceaseless cycling through the same plotlines and unlikely murders forever tormented by yet another incarnation of A never to break free Realising that there is no other escape for either characters or readers they briefly contemplate surrendering to fate and slipping uietly to their death beneath the indifferent waves Tragically at the last moment they form a power circle and are saved by the power of friendship which conjures up a boat crewed by all the major characters plus Jeremy the cruise ship organiserOnce rescued Hanna confesses to Naomi for no reason other than the end of the book is drawing near and realises that she isn t "A 3 She also realises that the person who tried to kill her in the "3 She also realises that the person who tried to kill her in the is probably the same person who tried to kill her all those other times A uick thinking Hanna The only actual conseuence of the prologue is that she loses the friendship of Naomi which lasted about 6 hours in real time and consisted in its entirety of conversations about shoes Graham is now in a coma Emily oes home and it turns out her parents love her again Jordan is revealed to still be alive which means we ll have to hear about her in another book Another man turns out to have been in the boiler room at the time of the explosion and I m oing to o ahead and assume it was Jeremy since he s been mentioned in every chapter without having done anything and he inexplicably started acting in an evil manner at his last appearance As the book concludes the irls drone on incessantly about how they re about to hand themselves in although they aren t committed enough to the idea to tell anyone else or say their oodbyes to the friends and relatives they ll miss so terribly Then at the last minute an oddly late autopsy report shows that Tabitha didn t die from the fall but from being beaten at close range I m starting to lose track but this seems to be roughly the third autopsy she s had now which seems a bit unorthodox Although not as unorthodox as the lead detective calling back someone who claims to have information about a murder whilst he is live on air So it turns out that the Fairytale Food: Enchanting Recipes to Bring a Little Magic to Your Cooking girls haven t killed anyone this cycle They did semi cripple airl but no one even knows her so that s fine They all simultaneously realise who the killer was all along yes A the person who keeps trying to kill everyone Of course Then A sends a handily timed text to confirm this only moments after they ve reached their shocking conclusion Also A threatens to kill them all but since

these that s what we were promised That s what made me keep reading We were close to the end right But no no someone offered Sara money to stretch this already paper thin story for another two books Crushed and Betrayed set to come out this year I think Yikes Nothing new happens in this book The irls continue to manipulate people and screw others over for their own benefit and then are shocked
