For my wordle, I chose the Pretty Little Liars series. I have not read any of the books in this series, but have the first one on my nightstand and am going to purchase the boxed set soon. This set includes books 1 through 4 in this series of 8.
Why am I choosing a series that I've never read? Well, I wasn't sure that I would like this storyline at all, so I held off. Then the TV show came out and I am absolutely hooked. Now, I want to read as much as I can before I watch too much of the show. (I'm a reader that likes to have the book version first, then movies and shows and such.)
And, just look at the covers. Aren't they darling?
I love the whole Barbie-gone-bad approach to the series. I totally makes sense after watching a couple of the TV shows and reading reviews about this series. Truly, this seems like a perfect summer series.
Here's my wordle, for which I used reviews from each of the 8 books in this series. Thanks, amazon!
