Books: Pretty Little Liars (series)

For the past few months, I’ve been reading the Pretty Little Liars Series. I have found it to be one of the best teen reads ever. This series is about four friends who share one deep secret with a friend who is no longer there. The series begins a bit slow but gets right into the thrills. Aria, a girl who is unlike every other girl in Rosewood, Pennsylvania and loves English class but not for the reasons she should. Emily, an athlete, is the picturesque American Girl, but there’s something she can’t admit to herself, let alone the people around her. Hanna, the popular girl who was once a “nobody” in the Rosewood social scene, but is now the cover girl for Rosewood with a few skeletons in her closet full of designer brands. Spencer, the beautiful girl who strives to be nothing short of perfect and yet has some not-so-perfect secrets she’s hiding. What links these 4 Rosewood girls together? Here’s a few to get you started: Allison, their long departed best friend who made them popular, ‘A’ who is trying to ruin their picture-perfect lives, the reality that there’s a murderer out there with Allison’s blood on their hands and the deep dark secret that haunts them all to this very day.

Music: Sia
Genre: Dance/Electronic/Pop

Sia is an up and coming artist who has rocked the charts lately. Some of her latest hits have been performed with other performers like Flo-Rida and David Guetta. I enjoy her music personally because it has cool 80’s beats yet keeps it modern with some techno background and catchy lyrics that make you want to blast the music and dance “like you just don’t care!”
Recommended Songs:
Titanium with David Guetta
Wild Ones with Flo-Rida

Movie: The Avengers
Genre: Action/Adventure

Filled with action that packs a punch, The Avengers is a movie to see this summer! It has Captain America, The Hulk, Ironman, Hawkeye, Thor and many more heroes. Its comedic, action packed, and has a bit of romance. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and it was worth the $8.25 I paid to get in. This movie will not let you down!

    The “Pretty Little Liars” books and television show are both very exciting and interesting. They keep you wanting to know much more. It’s all about the mystery. You should check it out. You’ll love it.
