Anyway, I loved this book, I found myself glued to the pages trying to figure out the mystery of who it is (I love mysteries) and of course I love romance, and I really enjoyed that part of it. The characters were very well written. I hated the mean girls. Loved Penelope, the main protagonist. I suspected so many people. I was on and off about certain characters, one minute I trusted them, the next minute I didn’t. (Trying not to give away too much) But it was just fun! I love books that make me think, reason, analyze and try to guess before the book ends. I haven’t been reading that many mysteries this year, and this book made me remember how much I love a good Suspense/Mystery/Romance....I’m not asking for too much, am I? Lol
I recommend this highly for someone who likes Young Adult, Thrillers, Suspense, Mystery and Romance. Oh and may like the show Scream Queens or the slasher movies, Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer. If that’s your thing, you will probably really enjoy this book!! I know I did!!
~Thanks to the author for providing a copy of this book via Social Butterfly PR & NetGalley. The opinions expressed are my own.
When I first saw this book cover I was intrigued, and then I read the blurb and knew I needed to read this book ASAP, so once it hit my kindle, I dropped everything so I could jump right in, and this book did not disappoint. From the very beginning where we see popular volleyball star Gretchen get murdered in the church parking lot all the way through the end, Pretty Dead Girls had me on the edge of my seat trying to figure out who was killing all of the popular girls in the school and who could be trusted and who couldn't be.
Penelope is the queen bee at school and the president of the Larks, the "It" club at school. When all of her friends start to turn up dead, she starts to get worried, and when the one person she never really paid attention to, starts to intrigue her, and also seems to have a connection to the girls becomes a part of her life, things start to get interesting. Cass has a past as well, and is as mysterious as they come. He had me guessing throughout this book if he was good or bad, and what secrets he held, but his devotion to Penelope seemed true so I wanted to trust him and my trust seemed to go back and forth just like Penelope's.
This book is definitely high on angst and drama. Throughout the book I was questioning everyone and everything that was happening. I loved how Monica Murphy would put us in the mind of the killer when a murder was taking place but never give us any clues as to who it was, but just enough to see what that person was feeling. It was amazing to see things going down as they happened, and then jump right back into Penelope's point of view. These murders are gruesome and tears up the town of Cape Bonita where nothing ever goes wrong.
Watching Penelope and Cass trying to figure out who is responsible, while trying to clear their names, and stay safe at the same time had me on edge, and holding my breath multiple times throughout this book. I never knew what was going to happen and when it was going to happen, which had me gripping onto my kindle to see how this story was going to end. The only thing I wish we could have had, was a little bit more of an ending. It felt that once the killer was revealed, we had a rushed ending where I would have liked a bit more of a conclusion to the story.
Overall this was an amazing book that I could not put down, I loved Penelope and Cass's story and all of the angst and drama that Monica Murphy brought in Pretty Dead Girls! If you're looking for a suspenseful read, I highly suggest picking this book up today. You'll be on the edge of your seat wondering who's responsible for these gruesome murders and wanting to murder some of these girls yourself! Make sure to one-click your copy today, trust me, you won't regret it!
Pretty Dead Girls is Mean Girls in a horror movie. I know the inspiration for this story came from Scream Queens but I hadn't seen that show before I read this book. But you better believe I started watching it on Hulu right after I read the acknowledgement!
Pretty Dead Girls is told in two POVs. One is the main girl and is the majority of the book. The other is a few chapters sprinkled in from the killer, which I thought really kept the plot interesting. It helped to keep your mind reeling and trying to guess who it is. Girl after girl is being picked off and there is certainly a theme to it.
There is a small romance part in this book but from the moment we get introduced to the Cass, I wanted to know more about him. In true fashion, I suspected him just like I did everyone else. Murphy did a great job leading us to believe one thing, only to shatter it and make us search again.
I could't put this book this book down. It intrigued me from start to finish and it had me playing Guess Who the entire time. If you are looking for a young adult suspenseful thriller with some seriously mean girls and a plot to keep you guessing, then you can't miss this book.
