Pretty sure I want to kill off all the parents in the whole series after this book. I also kind of wish I hadn't spoiled the end of the series by reading ahead so the end of this particular book could've shocked me more. ( )

I thought this would be about Emily (killer) and I kinda felt like it was. But I don't really like her... Emily and Hanna are the only two I feel bad for. (H getting a new phone and E telling Isaac-spelling?) Spencer and Aria just keep on hiding things and sneaking around and stuff. Loved the book though. I totally can relate to Aria and Hanna they are my fav. I *hate* Kate. ( )

Even though I read a spoiler and knew what was coming at the end of this book, I still got chills. To me that's a sign of good writing. Although I didn't quite see the cleaning out of the bank account and the adoption storyline. It'll be interesting to see where they take all of that to in the show. Although, they may not use it at all, it all depends I guess. Theoretically, I should be caught up with the book series by the time the show starts back up in January. ( )

Killer has been my least favorite Pretty Little Liars novel so far. It seemed to have less twists and duller chapters than the previous five. Nothing really happens for the majority of the book. We all know the construction of the Pretty Little Liars books. There is some event that happened in sixth grade that comes up a thousand times in the course of the novel. In this case- it's the night the Liars tried to steal the flag from Ali. The ending was ‘killer’ though, if you get what I’m saying. Let's go through the characters and see what they've been up to.

Hanna: Hanna's plot line was the dullest for me. I've always been fond of Hanna. She's had a troubled past with both family and friends. In Killer, he dad forces Hanna to spend every waking moment with her stepsister Kate. Now let me tell you something. I hate Kate. She is one of the most deceitful and disgusting characters in the series. I think she is worse than Alison. Mostly, I just feel bad for Hanna. She has to deal with this nasty girl who holds a secret over her that could destroy her social status-which we all know is imperative to Hanna. She worked hard to obtain the "cool girl" status and will do anything to protect it, including ratting out one of Kate's secrets.
Hanna and Kate have a full blown duel over Aria's brother Mike-which I find strange. Hanna and Aria don't even discuss the matter of Mike. Through their battle of trying to win his affection, Kate admits that she never really did like Mike, and that she was tricking Hanna the whole time to see what she would do to try to steal him away from her. I wasn't expecting this little twist and honestly, I believe that Kate does have a level of affection for Mike. Or at least, I want to believe that. The Whole Mike/Kate/Hanna was a bit confusing. Who was being used? They used Mike and Mike used them. Toxic much?

Emily: Like Hanna, Emily didn't have much of a plot in this book. She seemed to be the only one trying to figure out the Jason/Jenna/Alison connection. I'm guessing this will be a pretty big clue in the murder once they figure it out...so shouldn’t all the
characters be trying harder? I mean come on, ladies.

Emily's story in this book is dealing with her first boyfriend since dating Maya. At this point, Emily's sexuality is a little sketchy. She is not sure if she is confused, or bisexual, or made a mistake about Maya and Alison. Regardless, Emily loves Isaac. I, however, do not. He was an okay boyfriend through the book, but when the whole issue of his mother being a total B-word to Emily, I hated him. I wish that Isaac would have considered that his mother was harassing Emily. He just brushed her
off and didn’t even listen to her. This mother is brutal. She made far too many sex jokes at the dinner table, which is just bad manners, like are we a teenage girl again? And cutting a head off of a picture is terrible. Where does this women get off? So again, I wind up feeling bad for Emily and her ever so confusing romantic life.

Aria: Oh, Aria. Where to begin. Here's my problem with Aria in Killer. Her relationship with Jason seemed unreasonable. Aria has been crushing on this boy for six years and all of a sudden, he finds her interesting. But what does he really want. A said that Jason had secrets, and I think he has a big one. Why is he so angry all the time? And what is his connection to the Radley? Was he a patient, or visitor? Aria is blind to Jason and his possible evil ways, but thank God Emily's not.

Spencer: Spencer had a rough going in Killer. Andrew convinces her to sign up on an adoption website to try to find birthparents. She gets a match! Spencer becomes obsessed with everything related to her mother-which-by the way, we have no proof if Olivia is even her real mother. Come on, Spence, get some bloodwork done before you screw up everything! I understand Spencer’s obsessive behavior towards Olivia, her parents practically hate her, and it's a lot to deal with. Especially with Ian and Melissa being all sneaky.
The worst part about the whole adoption situation is Spencer's college fund. She spends all the money on a fake apartment near Oliva's. The realtor was set up by A! I guess A did ward Spencer not to keep looking. I’m sure A doesn’t want any of the Liars to leave. She can't harass them if they are spread out, right? I’m excited for the next book to see more about Spencer's family situation. On the plus side, this distances herself from Andrew-who I don’t like very much. No reason...he's just not good enough for Spencer.

I absolutely loved the ending. All the Liars are conflicted about what to think about Jason and Wilden. They finally meet together and explain to each other what they know. Right now, it’s sketchy. We don’t know for sure what the relationships between Jason, Ali, Ian, and Wilden. I’m excited for some clarification in the next book. I think Wilden is an interesting character. He has major problems going on and I need to find out!
As I’ve said, I thought this book was a bit boring, but the ending was fast paced and had my heart racing. I still think that Ian is guilty and has something to do the killing. I don’t think Jason was the other blonde Alison was talking too. Did A have anything to do with the fire? Lately he/she has been helping the liars. I have so many questions! Must read next book.
And ALISON?
I'm also curious to see what the flag has to do with the story. Why did Alison lie about what she drew?
My biggest problem with this book was the lack of friendship between the Liars. That's why I reviewed it the way I did. They were not a cohesive group, and I missed that. Don't they know by now that they need each other to solve these problems? They barely even speak in the book. Aria and Emily talk, maybe once and that's it. I feel like their trust is fading. Spencer should’ve talked to the girls about Oliva and done some more research. Andrew was 100% right about Spencer diving into everything way to fast. It cost her fortune!
As always, I love the writing of Sara Shepard. It's easy to read and is full of light, high school feelings. As a high school I can really relate to everything. There are moments where you want to roll your eyes, and moments where you gasp at the page with wide eyes.
I recommend this series to all ages. They're quick reads, with loveable characters. Sometimes the plots are slow-like in Killer-but you can count that they will start up quick again.

Based on just the title of the book I figured that the majority of the book was going to be about Emily. The nickname that her old friends used to call her 'Killer' was because of her protectiveness and loyalty to Ali.

The first chapter starts right where Wicked has left off, with the girls in the woods behind Spencer's house taking Wilden to see Ian's body. Which they had just found. Of course, in typical Rosewood fashion the 'body' is missing when they get back to the spot and Wilden doesn't believe them. I just don't understand why, when everything is going against them, two of them didn't stay to guard the body. As much as I really do like [a:Sara Shepard|93970|Sara Shepard|http://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1229580414p2/93970.jpg]'s work I'm starting to see a pattern that is making it really easy to predict some of the twists.

'A' has a way of playing each girl to make them think that one thing has happened, and then drops a bomb that makes everyone else think less of them.

The Spencer plot line of the book is a little dramatic, and is almost equally fuelled by Melissa as it is by 'A'. Although I do have to admit it really does seem like she was adopted at one point, I'm a little confused by the fact that Spencer looks like Olivia. Or possibly she is just saying that because she is so convinced that she is adopted. I think it is a little crazy that she just up and left for New York for the day to see her supposed bio-mom, but I guess that when Melissa points out that Spencer isn't one of Nana Hastings natural-born grandchildren, hinting that Spencer was adopted can make someone believe it a little bit more. In the end we find out that it was a scam and all of Spencer's collage money is gone. Can't say I feel too sorry for her as it kind of was a pretty dumb move. On a different note, I love Spencer and Andrew together. She seems much more herself with him and what we've seen of his character has been extremely caring.

Hanna drives me nuts. If I ever knew a girl as fake and annoying as her in real life I would honestly punch her out. I mean, I remember high school and how crazy people could get, and I remember that there were some girls who acted like your looks were the most important think in the world, but honestly sabotaging a seemingly good friendship with her soon-to-be-step-sister over a younger guy is crazy! On the other hand I do so how she feels like Kate is just trying to make her look bad, and maybe she is, but if it was me I would just suck it up. As for Hanna's dad, Tom, he is a complete ass of a father. Taking his soon-to-be-step-daughter's opinion and stories to be true over Hanna's 100% of the time. I would leave. Just a side note, I really wish she didn't break up with Lucas, I thought they were perfect-- even if he was a little dorky.

Aria has the strongest sense of herself out of the four girls. She knows what she wants and doesn't usually let people push her around. I think that the only real influence that A has over her is how horrible she feels about her dad's affair and that she didn't tell her mom. In all honesty she shouldn't have felt that way as it wasn't her fault and once she sees that she will be able to grow that much stronger. I really liked her relationship with Jason, and am a little annoyed that he freaked out too easily. I really wanted to like him.

Emily. She is, in my opinion the main character of this book, based upon her old nickname being the title. Emily strikes me as the girl who need validation for everything she does. Unlike Hanna, who also shows signs of needing validation, Emily can't make up her own mind. 99% of her decisions are base upon what how her friends and family (and Ali) would say about her doing it. Or what A tells her to do. I see her as such a push over and I think that A knows that too. It honestly is so sad to me that she can't do anything by herself.

Generally I just have a few things that are bugging me about the series. The first one is the damn giggling. What the hell! You would think these girls would have said something to each other and figured out that they are not crazy.

Secondly, what the hell is with the lax attitude with age differences in this town. I mean come on. Hanna's mom was dating Darren Wilden. Darren Wilden was in the same graduating class as Jason, Melissa and Ian. They graduated the same year that the girls finished grade six! That is a six year difference. Which is not too bad for Aria/Jason, Spencer/Ian, Ali/Ian. But unless Hanna's mom was younger than sixteen when she had Hanna, the age difference is at least ten years. Going with averages, she was probably 22 when Hanna was born, making her 16 years older than Wilden. The age gap between Byron and Meredith is unknown, but is probably a couple of years less as she was all ready in collage when the girls were in grade six.

I don't know, at this point I may only be reading this to find out what happens. I'm getting quite annoyed with the repetitiveness.
