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.
Penelope Malone is the president of the “Larks,” an elite high school club comprised of seniors and juniors that basically rule the school. Pretty and popular, these girls are also mean, back-stabbing snobs that are being targeted by a psycho killer whose intent is to "pick them off," one by one.
Cass Vincenti is the odd guy in school that is attractive yet easily overlooked. With a past that’s subject to many rumors, his behavior is often viewed as peculiar and unpredictable. Inserting himself into the midst of the ensuing chaos, one must question whether Cass is actually a
friend or foe.
An unlikely alliance is formed between Pen & Cass, as they formulate theories and work together to uncover the truth. And somewhere along the way, a romantic connection develops and grows. But with each senior Lark that winds up dead, Penelope’s life hangs in the balance. Hence, a future for this pair hangs in the balance, as well.
While reading books within the YA genre is not my typical norm, thrillers most definitely are. Thus, as an established fan of Monica Murphy, I found the premise of “Pretty Dead Girls” to be intriguing and unique.
Although my early guess as to the killer’s identity proved to be spot on, as the storyline progressed, I began to waver in my conviction. And while I was ultimately proven right, the motive behind the murders was not as easily deduced. Unfortunately, both the motive and conclusion was not as impactful as I had hoped. Still, “Pretty Dead Girls” grabbed my attention right from the start and held me captive right up until the very end.
Thank you to Entangled Publishing & Negalley for an advanced copy of this book, which I voluntarily reviewed.
Penelope has it all, a senior she is a cheerleader, president of the exclusive Larks club and very popular. She has been friends with the same group of girls since grade school so life is as good as it gets. That is until someone starts killing off her friends one by one. These deaths shake up the small tight night northern California community down to its core - especially Penelope. When Cass an outcast reaches out to her to try and figure out whats going on she isnt sure she can trust him, but the more time they spend together Penelope comes to understand the Cass may be just the guy to help her through this horrific time.
Monica Murphy takes her readers on a mystery that anyone who loved Pretty Little Liars or even Riverdale would love. The story is well paced, great character builds up and fantastic dialog that seemed realistic to the age group Ms Murphy is writing about. Told from mainly Penelope's POV, but a great twist we get a few chapters from the killers POV which was well placed throughout the book. I also really loved Penelope and Cass's relationship - they both are so well suited for each its unfortunate it takes a tragedy to bring them together.
If you enjoy YA and are looking for a great read to start the new year then Pretty Dead Girls is a perfect place to start.
