PDF READ (Burned Pretty Little Liars #12) Author Sara Shepard

Un lieu incertain yIn the boiling room Or how a teenage girl was able to hide her p 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 girls and their partners I found them all super cute and fun in this oneI enjoyed all the girls 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 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 s going 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 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 butou guys know that it s still one of my favorite series nonetheless If Starman The Truth Behind the Legend of Yuri Gagarin you scroll through each of the books there s a good chanceou ll find a review of me 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 was going 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 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 Shepard is just tossing in extras in order to keep the plot moving along *However I don t care that girl I met thirty pages ago not only might have been *I don t care that Girl I Met Thirty Pages Ago Not I met thirty pages ago not might have been killed by Hanna but that she is also gasp the long lost cousin of girl who s been in this series forever but only gained any kind of relevance ten pages ago or that boy I met five pages ago is the ex boyfriend of girl who was unintentionally killed by Aria By the way when did it become so easy to kill people These girls 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 give a book in one of my favorite series a two star rating BURNED Are they going to be in another fireIf this is true please just take my brain cells nowPlus that s the cover 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 girl 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 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 the girls 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. Trying to land a new boy And a blast or rather a crash from Hanna's past could mean rough waters ahead for everyoneThe liars better tighten their life jackets A perfect storm is brewing and if they aren't careful A will bury them at se. G moment in the opening of the novel and seems to think ou eat a margarita with our hands because after her drink arrives we re told Hanna licked her fingers clean Hanna is then annoyed that she s thinking about that 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 ear 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 The girls 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 girls can drink and party These books are cray Can t wait for 13 and 14 so I can finally figure out this shit 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 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 This goes wrong when they apparently manage to break her neck whilst moving her and then they all run off like cowards and 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 The Girl Who They Murdered *Tabitha the girl who they murdered ago but nobody has bothered to investigate properly Emily rehashes all Her Many Problems Before Spotting A Pretty many problems before spotting a pretty and deciding that none of them matter Spencer Aria and Hanna all have boyfriends The teens are all waited on hand and 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 imagining they can hear A 3 laughing behind doors which they then don t openThe girl 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 go without re applying make up for than 3 hours Spencer is doing the jealous ex girlfriend storyline this time around Aria somehow manages to end up having to do a Scavenger Hunt with Tabitha the maybe dead maybe Ali girl 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 girl 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 gets him off the hook too Aria decides that the best way to assuage her guilt 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 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 teenage girl whose family wanted rid of them Hanna Aria swap suspicious reA 3 which doesn t make either suspect any likely Emily and her new girlfriend steal a boat Spencer is pushed into a pool by Naomi because she s jealous of her boyfriend but After finishing this book I m starting to lose faith in the plot What started as an interesting thrilling novel about five girls keeping non life threatening secrets turned into a murderous spree It s just not believable any I know life is hard when ou 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 ou tell me of a single teenager that knows exactly how to blow up the boat. Anna go A goes too From scuba diving to tanning on the upper deck A is there soaking up all their new secretsEmily is smooching a stowaway Aria's treasure hunting partner is a little too interested in her booty Spencer's going overboard. I hope this is the last one I love the books But come on The girls always hold in their secretsRegret it laterLie to the people they loveThen it bites them in the buttIf she were to make another book I would be forced to read it and this journey is getting long lol Have not ever lost any interest in the books though can t wait to read it A typical trashy Pretty Little Liars book where I ell 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 I keep reading And let s be honest it s a nice little break so read something so easy and titillating The girls are on a cruise this time but the book still follows the formula of the previous ones They suspect someone who is slightly suspicious put all their eggs in one basket and turn up with nothing in even worse shape than before Sure I m getting tired of this process because I know it ll end up with no leads and one big reveal at the end to make me want to buy the next I wish Shepard would switch up her formula a bit and get me guessing again because at this point I know without a doubt that who the girls suspect is never actually going to be A I would be lying if I said I won t read the next one but I ll also still stick to borrowing the book from a friend so I don t actually have to pay for something that is vastly below my reading level Who else do I have to blame but myself This was supposed to be the last of 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 The Summer I Wasn't Me year I think Yikes Nothing new happens in this book The girls continue to manipulate people and screw others over for their own benefit and then are shocked when A calls them on their indiscretions This book starts of withet another crime Hanna meets a random girl an Ali look alike at a bar the girl gets wasted and while driving her home a sober Hanna crashes the car Instead of calling the police she calls Aria Spencer and Emily who decide the very best thing to do is to rearrange the scene to put the unconscious drunk girl behind the wheel and run and hide Whilst moving her they slip and hear a snap that Spencer fears is the drunk girl s neck breaking Her NECK BREAKING But Spencer only fears that possibly they paralyzed this girl Not that they killed herAnyway the girls leave the scene just as the ambulance arrives and we re told that it s in the middle of nowhere and absolutely no one saw them which of course means someone did and that someone is new A Despite the girls claiming to be haunted everyday by all the murders they have committed Aria pushed Tabitha off a cliff they all blew up the house with Ali in it and then their spate of smaller crimes Hanna drinking driving and smashing her ex bf s car Hanna getting involved with numerous people wanting to destroy her father s campaign Spencer s foray into drugs Aria doing her teacher and Emily doing whatever Emily does which is usually nothing of interest Anyway despite all of this the girls are totally psyched for an upcoming cruise to the Caribbean which is apparently paid for by their school and numerous other private schools are going 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 tan in their high brand bikinis and to flirt with all the gorgeous toned boys on the cruise So the cruise is grossly 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 gym with nineteen treadmills why this fact is important I have no idea a oga 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 A *pens and a From what I know pets aren t generally allowed on cruises I guess 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 go surfing and she go 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 girls went to the beach or a pool party in the past twelve booksEmily wastes no time lusting after the first girl 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 guys back to her room in the same sentance she meets them Emily figures the whore won t be using her bed and gives 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 guests 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 girl whom had a neck snappin. 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 .
