As most of you know I am a total Gleek, but there is another tv show that I cannot get enough of and that is Pretty Little Liars.
I watched the first episode and from then on I was hooked! It's so good, the book is a mix of Gossip Girl and Desperate Housewives, so it definitely fills the void that Gossip Girl left.
It also doesn't hurt that I love the girls' wardrobe [especially Aria's hippie/vintage look and Spencer's classic prepster].
Pretty Little Liars is about five girls [Alison DiLaurentis, Aria Montgomery, Emily Fields, Spencer Hastings, and Hanna Marin]. Alison, or Ali, is manipulative, vindictive, and deceitful. She is the 'queen bee' in their little quiet and pristine town of Rosewood.
Alison ruled over her clique, but often found her match in Spencer who was the only one who has ever stood up to Ali.
Spencer is a perfectionist, she's always trying to outdo and outwin her over-achiever sister. [Spencer's style is preppy and classic.]
Hanna was a little overweight and dying to be popular that she always caved in to what Ali said or did.[Hanna was never comfortable with her old body, but since losing the weight she is now the fashionista she always wanted to be.]
Emily is a competitive swimmer from an ultra-conservative family, she is most protective of Alison because she loves her more than a friend. [Emily is very All-American and sporty casual.]
Aria is a former outsider that was the free spirit of the group. [Aria's style is very bohemian, she loves vintage]
Aria reluctantly returns to Rosewood after she and her family moved to Iceland for a year, finding out that former nerd Mona Vanderwaal and a newly-thin Hanna Marin to be the new 'queen bees'. Ali disappears after getting into a heated argument with Spencer at a sleepover with the other girls, and the group falls apart.
Soon Aria begins an affair with her English teacher, Spencer falls for her sister's boyfriend, Emily falls for the new girl [Maya] that moved into Ali's old house although she is dating Ben, Hanna shoplifts and gets caught, and Ali is still missing.
Ultimately, Alison's body is found cemented in her former back yard, where Maya lives, and the DiLaurentis family holds a funeral for Alison in Rosewood.
But a mysterious person called "A" threatens to reveal the girls' secrets from past and present, including ones they thought only Alison knew. One in particular that the girls refer to as "the Jenna thing."
That's just a little juicy taste of what the show is about, I haven't read the books but I am definitely going to start!
