Okay, so I went ahead and read the next book. I actually finished it about two weeks ago and haven’t had time to post about it until now. It’s crazy because I thought graduating and not having to go to classes or do work would leave me more time to read/blog, but I’ve been super busy with the job search and everything else that life has thrown at me recently.
I’m pretty sure I’m just going to go ahead and read all of the Pretty Little Liars books that are out. They’re pretty easy to get through, so I’m hoping they don’t take up too much time. I just feel bad about starting a series of books and then never reading through all of them. Like I have to finish things before I can start something else.
This book, like the first was pretty similar to the television series. It kind of blows my mind how quickly the show went through these two books. I’m so used to one book being one whole season. I feel like if I read these books as they came out and had to wait for what happened next and then watched the show and saw how quickly everything flew by I would be kind of disappointed. Maybe it was a decision made by the editor to shorten the books and put out more of them, who knows…
The biggest thing I have to talk about from this book is ***SPOILER ALERT***
TOBY DIED!!! WHAT?! I was in shock. He’s such a huge part of the show that I thought he would be in it for a long time. There are so many amazing plot lines in the show that rely heavily on Toby. I’m glad that the show saw the importance of his character and what they could do with him. Plus making him overdose in the woods behind Emily’s house was just plain creepy and weird. Like did he have the drugs on him the whole time? That’s super confusing. And revealing that he molested Jenna and was doing it when she was blinded is absolutely horrible. I mean, their relationship in the show isn’t much better, but at least it was consensual.
What did everyone else think?
