    I had high hopes for this one I was in the mood for a fun guilty pleasure, a kind of Veronica Mars meets Gossip Girl Being a twin myself, though not an identical one, I love a good twin switch mystery I was prepared to accept a little stupidity, a few plot holes, for the sake of a fun soap opera.But The Lying Game disappointed me even by my fairly low standards It just felt so cheap All the characters were flat clich s not in itself a bad thing sure we ve all seen the dumb jock or the I had high hopes for this one I was in the mood for a fun guilty pleasure, a kind of Veronica Mars meets Gossip Girl Being a twin myself, though not an identical one, I love a good twin switch mystery I was prepared to accept a little stupidity, a few plot holes, for the sake of a fun soap opera.But The Lying Game disappointed me even by my fairly low standards It just felt so cheap All the characters were flat clich s not in itself a bad thing sure we ve all seen the dumb jock or the sensitive male poet before, but as long as there are a few good quips or some genuine emotion, I can t say stereotyping bothers me too much But, in The Lying Game, there was nothing but these paper thin characters and a paper thin plot Honestly, I should have known not to read this when saw that Shepard had THREE MORE BOOKS already planned in this one series Seriously, from what I ve seen, this could have been one book Maybe two You know those ten fifteen minutes at the start of Law Order episodes, where the detective characters spend a few scenes running around after red herrings until we get into the real meat of the plot THAT was the entire plot of The Lying Game The entire plot was one long red herring Now, red herrings are a staple of the mystery genre I could have coped with it if there was some emotional core here And, call me optimistic, but I thought this plot came with one built in Sure, the idea of a magic long lost twin sister who just happens to track you down on the day you re murdered is totally ridiculous But I was willing to be forgiving because it seemed like there was so much potential conflict built in here The epigraph we must be careful about who we pretend to be, because we are who we pretend to be got my hopes up even further Emma, the long lost twin, was a foster kid who d got the rough end of the deal her whole life Sutton, the murder victim, was an entitled bitch who had the luck to get adopted by a rich, coddling family Class conflict Identity crisis I thought it was all here But Shepard managed to suck all the life out of this interesting plot with totally bland, vanilla characters sapped of any kind of emotion, briefly sketched Nothing should be too interesting or complex in The Lying Game.And the plot holesdear GOD, the plot holes For such a serial nitpicker, I m actually not good with plot holes I know They almost always slide under my radar if they re papered up with good enough writing And, to be honest, I m somewhat willing to excuse them for the sake of the story e.g New Girl But all of the plot holes in The Lying Game of which there were many made me grind my teeth with frustration I understand that there s a difference between characters making stupid decision and plot holes, but exhibit A Emma, foster kid, has justor less fell into Sutton s life She s decided that she can t imitate her dead twin sister and she s determined to go to the police to get it straightened out Only the video of Sutton s death has been deleted from the Net and it turns out Sutton has a bit of a reputation for lying to the police Whenever Emma tries to explain the whole long lost twin thing, people laugh at her, assuming it s another of Sutton s ridiculous jokes ButEmma has a life of her own Why doesn t Emma call her best friend Alex to vouch for her, or her ex foster mother Why doesn t Emma ever show anyone in Sutton s family her Emma s Facebook page And the most annoying thing is that this could have been easily covered up I know that a lot of people don t like it when, in reviews, reviewers say that it would have been much better if X had happened because the primary job of a reviewer is to write about what is actually in front of them But TLG is full of ridiculous moments and plot holes that had me going why doesn t Emmas just BUT they could have easily been avoided Why doesn t Emma try harder to show them that she s not Sutton Well, maybe she wants to be Sutton Why was Sutton adopted and Emma wasn t Why doesn t Emma have any memories of Sutton Was Sutton adopted when she was a baby Why would Becky have Sutton adopted as a baby but not Emma The list goes on and on Nothing can be too complex or interesting in Shepard s simplistic, bland world There s no edge, no reason to care Emma s emotions are simple and written down just like, Emma was nervous Emma was happy Emma felt a twinge of guilt All writers do this to an extent but there was just no involvement with our protaganist There s the sensitive male poet and the dumb jock, like I mentioned, but there s absolutely no chemistry or life infused within them There s also the jealous little sister who s desperate to have her older sister s life Well, maybe she killed her so that she could have it Ughnot only are the characters totally unoriginal, so is the plotline Everything you ve seen here, you ve seen a million times before And done better, too The most annoying thing about TLG is the perspective it s told in Sutton is dead and narrates in a kind of beyond the grave first person voiceover, though God knows why because she can t remember ANYTHING about her old life except the occasional flash Emma on the other hand is told totally in third person almost as if Sutton was watching her, except not, because if Sutton was watching her, why would she be able to hear what Emma is thinking There s no hint of that story of twins being psychic There are no chapter breaks, or even line breaks The story jerks backwards and forwards from Sutton s first person whining about how she can t remember anything and she wishes she could which is all very, very convenient to Emma third personly wandering around trying to make sense of Sutton s life This dual POV thing just felt totally, totally cheap and lazy It s almost as if Shepard couldn t be bothered planning this book properly and, whenever she realised that she had to communicate A BIG REVELATION to her audience, she didn t bother getting Emma to do any kind of detective work which, y know, she s supposed to be doing Instead, she just flip flopped back to Sutton and got Sutton to show us through one of her very convenient flashes of her past life.Everyone is annoying, nobody is interesting and, no, I won t be coming back for Book 2 The most frustrating thing about this book is how goddamn lazy it is Listen up, YA writers Don t bother treating your readers as if they have any scrap of intelligence Just s p e l l everything out for them, stick to your clich s and sap every hint of life originality out of everything That will get you a bestselling series

    I m such a sucker for a these types of books I loved this I remember watching the show years ago and when it got cancelled I was so disappointed I m so excited to read this whole series so I can finally know EVERYTHING that happened

    Ok, let me start by saying that I m 21 years old and I started reading this series because I love the show Pretty Little Liars.Cover The cover is cute with the black background and the accents of pink However, the images of the girls are quite juvenile, which should have been a hint that the book was most likely made for a younger age group.Characters I felt that the characters were introduced oddly Names were just thrown around without any indication of who they were I have a hard time kee Ok, let me start by saying that I m 21 years old and I started reading this series because I love the show Pretty Little Liars.Cover The cover is cute with the black background and the accents of pink However, the images of the girls are quite juvenile, which should have been a hint that the book was most likely made for a younger age group.Characters I felt that the characters were introduced oddly Names were just thrown around without any indication of who they were I have a hard time keeping straight who was who Thayer, Emma , no Laurel It was hard to follow Also, the characters were very one dimensional They were flat and often quite boring.I really disliked the back and forth between Emma and Sutton Why was Sutton still there She brought nothing to the table.Suspense The book had its suspenseful parts my favorite was when Emma got strangled , but not enough for me I expected the book to have me on the edge of my seat like PLL, but that didn t happen much except for the ending Classic who dun it with a twist.Length The book was a very easy read I could have finished in two days, but boredom overtook me The book would have be fine with the Epilogue.Rating I give this book 3.5 stars for an interesting premise and great cliff hanger.Will I read the next book in this series Maybe Definitely if I find it on sale I m dying to find out what happened to Sutton

    I was absolutely addicted to the television show Pretty Little Liars this past summer So,when I heard the author of the book series the show was based on had a new YA series in the works, I quickly added the new title to my must read list The Lying Game does not disappoint It is filled with just the right amount of suspense, teen angst, and awesome clothes that teens are sure to love Sara Sheperd s latest series follows down on her luck Emma Emma s life in her foster home is unbearable I was absolutely addicted to the television show Pretty Little Liars this past summer So,when I heard the author of the book series the show was based on had a new YA series in the works, I quickly added the new title to my must read list The Lying Game does not disappoint It is filled with just the right amount of suspense, teen angst, and awesome clothes that teens are sure to love Sara Sheperd s latest series follows down on her luck Emma Emma s life in her foster home is unbearable So when she finds out she may have a long lost twin sister who lives in luxury with her wealthy family, she is overjoyed After Sara agrees to meet her lookalike Sutton, she is thrown into a plot largely revolving around lies, a twisted game played by Sutton and her friends, and mistaken identity Sheperd deftly tackles issues such as wealth, foster care and peer pressure with ease I m glad that readers get to see events unfold through the eyes of both working class Emma and privileged Sutton, because it lends perspective to Sutton s Lavish lifestyle Sara Shepard s masterful ability to create a suspenseful landscape filled with mystery and paranoia will make even the most seasoned reader of YA mystery and suspense jump in his or her seat The Lying Game left me wanting to knowWhat happened to Sutton How is Emma s life going to change Guess I ll just have to wait for the next book in the series to find out Check out my blog WellReadWife.com

    WOW SO GOOD It started off a little slow and it took me some time to get into the story but once it got interesting, I was hooked

    I don t normally read this type of book, but since I received it through a Goodreads giveaway I figured I might as well give it a try That was a mistake This book is like Gossip Girls meets a very bad Law and Order spin off I don t even want to read the sequel And I read three of those horrible Blue Bloods books I had high hopes for this But I should have done my research on the author first Apparently she wrote Pretty Little Liars, which sounds like one of the dumbest things to ever hit I don t normally read this type of book, but since I received it through a Goodreads giveaway I figured I might as well give it a try That was a mistake This book is like Gossip Girls meets a very bad Law and Order spin off I don t even want to read the sequel And I read three of those horrible Blue Bloods books I had high hopes for this But I should have done my research on the author first Apparently she wrote Pretty Little Liars, which sounds like one of the dumbest things to ever hit television Seriously, how can you compare being a lesbian to wanting to be with your thirty year old teacher But I digress.I should have known what was in store.The premise of this novel is that a girl, Sutton, was murdered She finds out that she is a ghost and wakes up in the bathroom next to a girl named Emma My first problem is that she used a prologue My second problem was that she used a cheap way to introduce us to the character p1 I could barely remember that my name was Sutton Mercer and that I lived in the foothills of Tuscon, Arizona This is a pretty cheap way to tell a characters name Only the Animorphs can get away with using the My name is gimmick to introduce a character And K.A Applegate had a reason Anyway, we soon find out that Sutton and Emma are twin sisters Sutton was murdered, but she can barely remember anything about her old life Sutton was the adopted twin, Emma was abandoned by her mother and has been in and out of foster homes since she was five After a series of kinda stupid events, and thirty name dropping pop culture references later, Emma finds out that Sutton is her twin and goes to visit her through Facebook Apparently this girl isn t very smart What sort of idiot goes to visit a person they just met on Facebook I m not going to spoil the big surprise but I am going to warn you that this book is part of a series Meaning that there is no payoff I was left feeling no sympathy for any of the characters except for Nisha, the villian, and Ethan, the loner love interest.Nisha is an East Indian girl, meaning that she is actually from India I guess, who Sutton and her friends prank for very stupid petty reasons I disliked every single one of Sutton s friends I even disliked Laurel, and she was the most likable out of all of them My biggest beef with this book was all of the name dropping Every other page was filled with references to Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and other pop stars that no one will care about in five years The reference to Owl City made me realize that this book was already dated I seriously wanted the author to stop mentioning iPhones, iPads, and Blackberries I wonder if the author was payed to mention this stuff I mean, I have an iPhone, I don t need to be told how great they are every five minutes Once again I excuse this sort of thing in the Animorphs simply because unlike in this and Blue Blood, I wasn t being beat over the head with name dropping Another thing I hated Sutton Why am I supposed to care who killed her She was a lying, cheating, loser who built herself up by pulling seriously not ok pranks on other people She stole her best friends boyfriend She cheated on him with a college boy She calls the police to report stupid crimes such as babies in dumpsters and bodies in the forest And I m supposed to feel sympathy for her Emma was also unbelievably dumb But telling just how stupid she is would be a spoiler The plot, while compelling at times, hinges on cheap cliffhangers The prose is horrible I take back that it sounds like something I might have written when I was fourteen I wrote better than this then I literally cringed every time the girls started talking like rappers from ten years ago.I wonder if these girls have ever met Snoop Dogg They d have a good time with him They talk like Cindy, out of the Boondocks, only on meth Very cheap meth.I wonder how Sarah Shepard graduated from Columbia with a MA in literature This is like a slap in the face for all unpublished authors Write vapid garbage if you ever want to get published I will not finish this series I hated the book I hated how the book depicts foster families I hate how it depicts high school I hate mean girl cliches Thanks for the book Harper Collins, but I wish you had kept it and just given me the next Wicked Lovely That might not be the greatest series in the world, but it looks like Tolkien compared to this

    This was my sort of last chance, shot in the dark with Sara Shepard I could not get into Pretty Little Liars at all and it ended up being a Can t finish book So, I wasn t expecting much with this one but something kept nagging at me to try it out.Shockingly, it has been a stepping stone for walking me out of my reading slump this summer I read it in less than 1 day I haven t gotten into a book in a while, so this was a huge deal to me.Is this book mind blowingly good No, but it was fun This was my sort of last chance, shot in the dark with Sara Shepard I could not get into Pretty Little Liars at all and it ended up being a Can t finish book So, I wasn t expecting much with this one but something kept nagging at me to try it out.Shockingly, it has been a stepping stone for walking me out of my reading slump this summer I read it in less than 1 day I haven t gotten into a book in a while, so this was a huge deal to me.Is this book mind blowingly good No, but it was fun and kept me guessing.Spoilers I am screaming at that ending All that reading and I know NOTHING AHHH, 2 better give some clear answers or I could see myself loosing interest quickly Emma was a huge book saver for me, along with Ethan Almost all the other characters are shallow, self absorbed and some are just downright mean If Ethan ends up being the killer, I am going to be mad I also liked Laurel at times, I don t know why but she had some moments of redemtion for me she s another I will be sad about if she is the killer Bottom line I m hooked, i want to know who the killer is Book 2, Never Have I Ever needs to be in my hands now.This is somewhere between 3.5 and 4.0 stars maybe like a 3.8
