Ruthless by Sara Shepard...
For years scandal has rocked Rosewood, Pennsylvania—and high school seniors Aria, Emily, Hanna, and Spencer have always been at the center of the drama. They’ve lost friends, been targeted by a ruthless stalker named A, and narrowly escaped death. And it’s not over yet.
Aria’s love life is on the fritz. Emily’s exploring her wild side. Hanna’s kissing the enemy. And someone from Spencer’s past—someone she never thought she’d see again—is back to haunt her.
But none of that compares to what happened last spring break. It’s their darkest secret yet and guess who found out? Now A is determined to make them pay for their crime, and the only thing scarier than A is the fear that maybe, just maybe, they deserve what’s coming to them.
I was really excited when I got my hands on this book a week early, thanks to another glitch from the website that I pre-ordered it from and I was really excited to start to read it because I loved the last book and it had me really wanting to know what was going to happen in this book. Unfortunatley I really did not like this book.
The plot. I thought that the plot was very slow and dragged for most of the book. For me I found that it didn't have any of the mystery and suspense that made this series so interesting, mysterious, enjoyable and fun to read and it ended up taking my about a week to read when all the rest of the books took me about a day or two because they were so great.
The characters. I found that there was really no character development in this book, we didn't get to see any of the characters grow throughout the book and become better in one way or another they just seemed to go along with their lives which I did find a little bit boring.
Overall for me this book was a let-down, but this could have been due to my high expectations for the book. I think that this will be my last "Pretty Little Liars" book that I will be reading or atleast for a while.
