Never Have I Ever

Oh my gosh, I am so so so glad that finals are over! And now we have a 4 day weekend, which gives me plenty of time to read tons of good books. I just realized this is going to be my first post of 2012, wow! Ok, so I read Never Have I Ever a little while ago and finally had time to get in a review. I really really enjoyed this book, and I can't wait for the next one. This is the second in The Lying Game series by Sara Shepard.
Sara Shepard, the author of the Pretty Little Liars novels, has followed up those top-selling fictions with an even more artfully knotted series. At its center is a murdered narrator whose long-lost identical twin sister Emma is serving as a stand-in detective to find the killer. In the second episode of their hunt, the pair discovers new clues, but they know that as they search for the killer, he or she is watching their every move, waiting for the right moment to end it all. 
So there's another short summary from Goodreads, but this time it's ok because anything else will give away this book. This book was a lot more suspenseful than the last and a lot more things were resolved in this one, which I liked a lot. There were just some parts of the book that were super suspenseful where I was gripping my seat to find out what came next. I think that really made it interesting for me. And also, we got to find out a little more about Sutton herself and we find some new secrets about some Lying Game pranks. It was much more fast paced also. I love how relationships really developed in this book, like between Sutton's parents and Emma and also Laurel, too. It made the characters feel more real and alive. This book was unexpected also, I would have never seen the ending coming even if it was staring me right in the face. I think this book was very well thought out and it made me be just as amazed as I was in Pretty Little Liars. This turned out to be a short review, but overall I really adored this book and could not set it down. It just grasped me from the very beginning. Fans of Pretty Little Liars should definitely pick this series up.
