My summer reading plans.

Hey all! I don't have TOO much to do this summer. But one of the things i plan to do is to read some books i haven't had the time to read, but i really want to, here's some of them;

The Harry Potter Series
I remember reading the first, and maybe the second, a really long time ago, but I never finished the series, and i haven't seen the movies. Don't kill me! I really want to read them all this summer. I've heard that they get really good after the fourth.

Pretty Little Liars Series
I've read the first book twice now, and i really am interested in the plot, i want to read the 2nd book this month sometime, and i hope to finish th series within the next couple months.

Warriors Series
These are more at the bottom of my list, don't get me wrong. they're great books, there's just a bunch of other books i've wanted to read that i've been putting off for a long time. I want to try to read these soon though.

Got any more suggestions? Thoughts on my reading plans? Leave a comment! I reply to all!

Pretty Little Liars

High school juniors Aria, Spencer, Emily, and Hannah are 4 pretty girls with some ugly secrets. Hannah had low self-esteem because her own father called her overweight, but after making herself eat greasy, fatty food, then throw up, she's one of the prettiest, most popular girls in school now. She stopped for a while, but after some stressful things happen, all she wants to do is eat. Is she going to fall back into her bad habbits? Aria has always been the unique one but very unsure of herself. She contantly tries out different personality types, to see which one is most pleasing to other people, and make her popular, so she won't be just the weird girl with the pig-puppet. But when she meets an older man in a bar, was pretending to be someone she's not the best idea after all? Spencer is always surpassed by her older sister Mellissa, from school, to boyfriends. Spencer is always a little envious. And when Mellissa brings home her new super cute, British boyfriend, will Spencer be able to push aside her jealousy and resist temptations? And Emily, her life is going pretty well, she's doing good in school, and one of the stars of the swim team. But things shake up a little when there's a new girl, Maya, moving in across from her. Emily is very intrigued by Maya, and soon learns some secrets about her, and maybe herself. But are Emily's feelings for Maya a little more than friendly?

What do all these girls have in common? They were all best friends in 7th grade, along with their "pack leader", Alison. But the summer 7th grade ends, Ali goes missing, and nobody knows what happened to her. All the girls are really confused and creeped out by this, and since it happened, their friendship broke off. But there's something even scarier happening now, the girls are getting messages from someone who obviously knows secrets about them, the mysterious person only signs their name with an "A". Is it Alison? No. She's been missing for 3 years. She has to be dead by now, and ghosts can't send texts and emails, right?

I liked this book; the plot is really interesting and suspenseful! I liked how the book is told in switching view-points between Aria, Spencer, Hannah, and Emily. It made it easy to stay interested when there's 4 kinda seperate stories, and I like how they all tie to each other. It did get a little confusing at first, but other than that it's a really light read, no big complicated words, it's written pretty simply.

This is the second time I've read this book, but i haven't read any of the others yet :P I'm going to try to finish it oever the summer, maybe? Well we'll see!

Thank you so much for reading and let me know what you think of the series!!!! Also suggest books for me to read if you want!
