23. Pretty Little Liars Series Book #3: Perfect by Sara Shepard
24. Pretty Little Liars Series Book #4: Unbelievable by Sara Shepard
25. Pretty Little Liars Series Book #5: Wicked by Sara Shepard
26. Pretty Little Liars Series Book #6: Killer by Sara Shepard
27. Pretty Little Liars Series Book #7: Heartless by Sara Shepard
28. Pretty Little Liars Series Book #8: Wanted by Sara Shepard

so awhile back my amazing [enabler] friend Sarah sent me a care package with the first Pretty Little Liars book in it... I'm a tween-wannabee so clearly, I watch the PLL tv-show on abc family... [aka tween-crack].

um, the book was good - so good I clearly got on the internet and started searching for the books... now the practical side of me looked on our library webpage first because let's be honest these are not literary works of art that I want to reread every year, just fun in the moment books... alas, these books were not in the library system!

so I searched online to buy them [I know, I know - not in the budget but a girl needs to read!]... I found that Barnes & Noble was cheaper [for once] than my trusty Amazon so I went out on a limb and bought them there... a week passes and no books. I won't go into details but it took TWO WEEKS to get B&N customer service to resend the books, what crap. I was VERY unsatisfied with their customer service and will not be buying books from them again.

I'm sorry Amazon - I won't every doubt you again. Screw you B&N and your shit customer service [this makes me sad because I used to love them].

Anyways, back to the books... um, they were heaven, in fact they were so good I packed them up and mailed them to my best friend Lindi to read ASAP. They are really witty, capture teen drama and really kept me on my toes... I also feel like the character development was really good, you watch these girls go through some crazy shit and for being a teen book I was very satisfied. I couldn't wait when one book was over to start the next one... I finished book #8 and now I'm kinda depressed... [though my checkbook isn't] - what do you mean there aren't any more???

Oh well, on to read a classic [also from the lovely sarah] to make myself feel better about reading teen smut for the past two weeks!

happy reading penguins! :)

Have you read Shiver and then Linger by Maggie Stiefvater? No? DO IT.

The other teen book I loved was Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick.

oh, oh, OH!!! I'd be ashamed of myself if I failed to mention the Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare. AND her new book Clockwork Angel. *dying* and *waiting* anxiously for the new on in that series. :)
