Pretty Little Liars Month is in full swing; and to further get you PLL lovers revved up, we’re taking a little trip down memory lane to recap the epic series that we’ve been crushing on since 2006 – all leading up to the latest installment – Pretty Little Liars # 11: Stunning, in bookstores this month!
ABOUT THE SERIES
In the exclusive town of Rosewood, PA, where the sweetest smiles hide the darkest secrets, four pretty little liars—Spencer, Aria, Hanna, and Emily—have been very bad girls. They’ve kept their scandalous secrets hidden for years, but now someone named “A” has the dirt to bury them all alive…and it may be too late to outrun the truth.
Pretty Little Liars # 1 – Spencer, Aria, Hanna, and Emily are most certainly not the only high school Junior’s on the planet with something to hide; but their secret is definitely more explosive than others. Since seventh grade, the four girls have kept mum about the disappearance of their BFF and ringleader Allison DiLaurentis; but someone knows the truth, and they’re eager to share it with the world.
Pretty Little Liars # 2: Flawless – Turmoil abound for the Pretty Little Liars. Hanna is obsessed with being flawless; Aria is hung up on her hottie English teacher; Spencer swiped her older sister’s boyfriend; and Emily likes her new bestie Maya as much more than a friend…yet none of these things compare to the truly wicked secret they’re hiding regarding the disappearance of Alison DiLaurentis all those years ago. And someone known as A appearing in text message, IM, and crude notes is not above exposing all of their faux pas.
Pretty Little Liars # 3: Perfect – Four girls in Rosewood, Pennsylvania known as Spencer, Hanna, Aria, and Emily are supposedly perfect – but that’s just what the outside world thinks. The mysterious A, on the other hand is armed with the dirt – Hanna’s BFF is on the verge of saying bye-bye; Spencer has moved on from boyfriends and begun stealing her sister’s other possessions; Aria keeps running back to her forbidden ex-boyfriend; and Emily feels as if she’s shouldering the weight of the world due to a tiny kiss. If the girls don’t watch their backs, A is about to unleash their lies…one secret at a time.
Pretty Little Liars # 4: Unbelievable – Courtesy of a mysterious person named A, four Pretty Little Liars have found their charmed lives flipped upside down. Aria’s English teacher boyfriend has landed behind bars; Hanna’s on the verge of death for knowing far, far too much; Spencer’s stressing that she may have been involved in Ali’s disappearance and murder; and poor Emily has been shipped off to Iowa to get acquainted with her conservative cousins. The takedown has begun; but for A, it’s only the tip of the iceberg.
Pretty Little Liars # 5: Wicked – Alison DiLaurentis’ supposed killer is finally behind bars; but that hasn’t stopped the four Pretty Little Liars from sticking to their truly wicked ways. Emily can’t get her new band boyfriend off of her mind; Spencer has started to dig up secrets about her family; Aria is providing a bit too much approval for her mother’s taste in men; and Hanna will do anything to reclaim the crown of Queen Bee. Sure, they may think that they’re safe from A now; but little do they know…history has a very strange way of repeating itself.
Pretty Little Liars # 6: Killer – Since Hanna, Spencer, Aria, and Emily became friends with Alison DiLaurentis back in middle school, the four girls have been lying. Lying about the terrible things Ali made them do before she was killed at the end of seventh grade. But bad things don’t die. And A knows that the four Pretty Little Liars simply can’t resist being bad. Spencer is stealing from her family; Hanna’s on a mission to corrupt hot younger boys; pure Emily has given up her abstinence; and Aria is snooping into her boyfriend’s past. And what is A doing? Well, there’s a new A in town; and it’s time for he (or she) to have a little fun.
Pretty Little Liars # 7: Heartless – The Pretty Little Liars have begun to tell very ugly stories – or at least that’s what Rosewood thinks. Hanna, Aria, Spencer, and Emily swear that they found a dead body in the woods. A dead body that mysteriously vanished. Then, once the woods went up in flames, the BFF’s claimed that an impossible person rose from the ashes. But the impossible person disappeared too. A is starting to get sick of the PLL’s. Solution? Time to get rid of them.
Pretty Little Liars # 8: Wanted – Back in middle school, gorgeous, popular, perfect Alison DiLaurentis plucked Hanna, Emily, Aria, and Spencer from obscurity, transforming them into glittering centerpieces in the affluent town of Rosewood, Pennsylvania. But Ali wasn’t perfect. She made the four girls do terrible things, and held their most personal secrets hostage. But that time of their lives is over. All of Ali’s secrets and lies have been revealed, and it’s time to move on. But someone refuses to let them do so.
Pretty Little Liars # 9: Twisted – One year has passed since Alison DiLaurentis’ disappearance and murder was put to rest; and Hanna, Aria, Spencer, and Emily stopped receiving the twisted, cryptic notes from A. Now seniors in high school, the girls have closed one nightmare chapter of their lives; only to open a new one. Hanna is on the verge of ruining her father’s Senate campaign; Aria’s seething over the new exchange student living with her boyfriend; Spencer’s getting very cozy with her soon-to-be-stepbrother; and Emily is ready, willing, and able to do whatever it takes to lock in a swimming scholarship. But the worst of their problems is yet to be revealed. During Spring Break, the four girls did something completely unforgivable; and now it’s coming back to haunt them.
Pretty Little Liars # 10: Ruthless – Rosewood, Pennsylvania has been riddled with scandal for years now; and it shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. At least when it comes to the Pretty Little Liars. Emily has begun to explore her wild side; Spencer just received a surprise visit from someone from her past; Aria’s love life is, once again, on the fritz; and Hanna has begun making nice with the enemy. But what happened during Spring Break is still hovering over them. It’s their biggest secret yet; and it just fell into the wrong hands. It’s payback time – A style. Read an excerpt here
