Synopsis

 

 

Wow, was this a strange book! I actually knew a spoiler going into the novel. But, it wasn’t too bad.

I appreciated the way it was narrated, with Mr. Utterson. It was interesting to see someone else’s perspective. This book is so short! There’s not much I can say about it without totally spoiling it. Continue reading

Spoiler Review here


Synopsis

 

 

I don’t really know what to say about this novel. I had to read it for my British Literature class, and therefore would have been fine had I not read it. This book is nothing like what the movie adaptations portray. And it was very very confusing, at least in the beginning when Victor was preparing to make the Creature. Continue reading

Synopsis

 

3 or 2.5 stars…

It took me a very long time to finish this book. I don’t think I’ll be continuing the series.

Pretty Little Secrets by Sara Shepard Review

 

Image**This is a Pretty Little Liars collection novel**

Recommended for: anyone who really enjoys the PLL series and wants to read more about the characters

Read from September 29, 2012 to December 31, 2013

★★★

Not going to lie: This was a good book but if you’re not entirely obsessed with the Pretty Little Liars series and you think you need to read it in order to read the rest, don’t bother. This book was somewhat of a struggle for me as it was hard to be intrigued. Plus I read it after reading the 13th novel in the series, which makes it hard to read since it takes place between the 4th and 5th books. Anyway, a fun read but not entirely necessary. Probably a book to read if you’re looking for something with not a lot of plot.
