Review: Stunning by Sara Shepard

Stunning (Pretty Little Liars #11) by Sara Shepard
  • Hardcover: 320 pages
  • Publisher: HarperTeen (June 5, 2012)
Goodreads Description:

 Full of darker secrets, juicier scandals, and deadlier plot twists, the latest arc of the #1 New York Times bestselling series continues to deliver fast-paced, tension-ridden drama.

After Alison DiLaurentis tried to kill them, Spencer, Aria, Emily, and Hanna tried to get their lives back on track. But these girls just can’t stay out of trouble. First there was their disastrous trip to Jamaica, and their summer breaks were no less eventful. Now a new A is stalking them, taunting them with the very secrets these pretty little liars have been trying to forget. But this A doesn’t just want to blackmail the girls—this A is out for blood.

Sara Shepard’s fan base only gets bigger as the hit ABC Family Pretty Little Liars TV show continues to draw new readers to the bestselling series. Everyone will be dying to find out what A does next....

My Thoughts:

I don't have much to say about this book because I felt like nothing of interest really happened. Normally the Pretty Little Liars books are chock full of twists and surprises but it in this one there only seemed to be one twist (at least in my opinion). I pretty much figured out that twist somewhere between the first quarter to first half of the book, so when it came time for the reveal that was supposed to be shocking my reaction was, "duh!". The story AND the characters were lackluster and boring. These girls have been through a lot and are a little older so I would expect some growth but they all seem to be repeating their mistakes over and over. Overall, the book wasn't bad (or good), it was just disappointing. Hopefully the series will be ending within the next book or two because I think the series is suffering by continuing, but I do want to know how things turn out so I will be reading the next book in the series. 

2.5/5
