    One thought on “Pretenders”

    1. See reviews on my blogA cliffhanger does not mean the same thing as randomly cauterizing your plot in the middle of the rising action, but no one bothered to tell this book There is no climax to this thing, no resolution of any sort Instead the book just gets chopped off in the middle of set up It builds and builds and builds and then HAH, NOPE, YOU GET NOTHING And that is not a cliffhanger, that is prematurely ejaculated book.If not for that ending, I would have rated it higher It wasn t reall [...]

    2. Consider yourself WARNED this book is the first of a series and it just ends Full stop, no closure for any of the characters You will have to read the next book if you want to know how any of this works out.I LOVED this book until it ended Everything about it drew me in, and I turned pages like crazy And then just ended Every single character was left dangling with a full stop cliff hanger I ve never been so furious I don t mind books that are part of a series with an over all arc, but I expect [...]

    3. My reaction to this book can be summed up in one little gif For me, the highlight of this book would probably be the blurb and the deceptively pretty cover.Unfortunately, the lowlight would have to be everything else.

    4. Is it possible to say that this is Lisi Harrison s worst book and I didn t enjoy it that much Yes, you got it Massie Block.After becoming obsessed with Lisi sCliqueseries and finishing it many years ago when the final book was released, I was verysad The Cliquewas an amazing series and it was one of the first series books that brought me into the YA Fiction world, and look at where I am today.But it s already been many years, and I ve been waiting for something else by Lisi Harrison Thenboom Pre [...]

    5. Every year at the fucktabulous Noble High, 5 students are nominated as the most outstanding of that year They are dubbed the Phoenix Five One of these spectacular teens has snagged the personal journals of the rest, and wants to expose them all as fakes This individual distributes the journals to the entire school for all to see Basically what you get are the ramblings of five teens One girl who pretends to be various actresses, two forgettable guys, some other random chick The final teen is a g [...]

    6. A reminder that I m too old for these kinds of books I ve never read the Clique series, but Lisi Harrison has a good presence in the adolescent genre and if she tried, her writing can appeal to a mature audience The real big problem I had with this book is that there isn t a clear satisfaction that the reader can take away since the book s seemingly only purpose is to set up the characters, the backgrounds, and their problems only to find that the end is a cliffhanger I don t think it could be [...]

    7. 4.5 StarsEach year the yearbook at Noble High announces The Phoenix Five The five most outstanding freshman, chosen to represent the class But as the next school year begins, someone has decided that these five are nothing but fakes and they ve decided to prove it It seems that in freshman year English class students were made to keep a journal One that was never to be read by anyone, not even the teacher But now each of The Phoenix Five s journals have been stolen and leaked to the entire schoo [...]

    8. To be honest, I was quite disappointed In fifth and sixth grade, I was obsessed with the Clique novels I loved Alphas even , when that series came out Monster High was okay, but I never did get around to reading the last book.When I heard the premise Three girls, two guys, five secrets , I thought it sounded exciting, and so I checked it out It was not what I was expecting.The entire novel felt like a watered down version of Pretty Little Liars for the younger set The characters were boring, sel [...]

    9. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to Little, Brown Books for Young Readers and Netgalley 5 teenagers, 5 diaries, what will happen Unfortunately, this book was just boring.The characters Lily certifiable due to delusions Originally told us she was 5 months pregnant with triplets, not sure if this was true, but if it was, why was she still going after other guys Vanessa certifiable due to inability to deal with reality Totally focused on school [...]

    10. I ve never read a book by Lisi Harrison, and I probably never will besides this series This is the first book in the series and just came out in October of 2013, so I m not expecting a sequel anytime soon And notice how I said this was a book, and not a novel Siiiigh.When I first picked this up, I thought this would be interesting and scandalous The Barnes Nobles YA section has failed me it was only interesting at the end, and there wasn t much scandal Sheridan was your typical blond tryhard, Du [...]

    11. Was there this much drama in my high school Yes, sort of the relationship dramas and identity issues and popularity contests and fashion experiments were there I m less sure about the melodramatic parts of these five character s stories, such as the parents on death row and the boyfriend of a sister involved in a pyramid scam I wanted to hate this soapy high school drama but I just couldn t It wasn t bad, and I can think of a number of high school girls at the library who will really like it I [...]

    12. I know that over 80% of my books are rated at least four to five stars I should really rate how I want to, and not try to be nice THIS book isn t one if them I rated it with five soaring stars because I liked how the story alternated points of views Each story was hmm Maybe five to eight pages each I think my favorite character s were Vanessa and Sheridan Sheridan reminded me of myself, since she s UBER dramatic about things, as I am And Vanessa cares about her grades, I do too, but not as much [...]

    13. I received a copy from Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review Pretenders and i did not get along at all.It was so dull, housework started looking appealing.By 60%, i was starting to lose the will to live.The characters were absolutely ridiculous.Lilly was by far the worst one I really didn t like her I will defiantly not be reading book two.

    14. See of my reviews at We Live and Breathe BooksI got Pretenders on Netgalley, having found out about it through an email The concept intrigued me the secret journals of five students were leaked, the book being a compilation of those journals At Noble High School, all the freshmen were required to fill a journal of 250 pages for their English classes The five journals included in the book come from the Phoenix Five the five most outstanding freshmen, as elected by the school I suppose at this po [...]

    15. Pretenders by Lisi Harrison is a first reads I received at the BEA Book Expo Conference and is due to release on October 1st, 2013 The prologue takes place one year after chapter 1 begins and explains that the voice narrating the tale is one of the five characters who completed 250 pages of journal entries for an English class over the course of the school year The five students were elected as the Phoenix Five freshman in a type of most likely to succeed kind of award The journals which were ne [...]

    16. This series opener has a terrific hook someone has stolen the English journals of the Phoenix Five five high school freshmen voted outstanding by the student body Their secret crushes, family conflicts, fragile insecurities, and darkest fears have been made public, revealed in alternating chapters in the book you now hold in your hands Told from multiple points of view, these are the private journals of 3 girls and 2 boys including Sheridan the diva of school theater whose journal entries includ [...]

    17. Pretenders is a book that shows the point of view of five principal characters I liked the way the book was written because it is something different I rate this book five because the ending had me wanting , and there is a second book so I ll definitely read it It is easy to read, it is not confusing at all, it ll make you want to keep reading I totally recommend it Overall, Pretenders is one of my favorite books.

    18. Aunque el principio no lo entend a, sigue con mucha intriga y me ha gustado mucho Quiero seguir y saber m s

    19. The best way to describe this book the worst book I have ever read whose sequel I want to read.Pretenders is a terrible book Superficial, childish, silly, and annoying It revolves around the journal entries of 5 of the most popular kids at Noble High, which supposedly is supposed to show how each of the popular kids hide who they really are to become popular and stay that way It was supposed to show how everyone is a Pretender I thought this book would provide some level of depth I was wrong.Eac [...]

    20. ugh.Review originally posted at The Not So Literary HeiressesPretenders felt a lot like a getting to know you book You get introduced to all these characters, but aren t really given much in terms of story You don t get to know how they become the Phoenix Five You get to see the characters getting into conflicts, but don t get to see if they would turn out better or not And so on This is a book full of questions, but no answers I like the whole idea of reading The Phoenix Five s journals to know [...]

View the full review here iswimforoceans 2013 10The Phoenix Five are the elitee best of the beste most likely to succeed in everything in life Awarded and revered, they are untouchable until now Stolen journals of the Phoenix Five reveal that nothing is real and everything the students and the town have seen is a lie TO attain perfection, one must create the illusion of perfection but if they leave a trace, it s bound to be found And now, the truth is out there for everyone to see.Offering reade [...]

    22. I received an ARC of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.Maybe it s because I am far out of high school, but this book just didn t do anything for me It was told through 5 alternating points of view, and strictly told through journal entries The initial journal entry was by x phonie and promised a web of scandal and deceit to be unveiled throughout the remainder of the journal entries Well, that didn t happen What commenced was a bunch of unrealistic characters writing eve [...]

    23. 2.5 5This review is also available on my blog.Not only does the blurb lie like nobody s business most popular students They re freshmen no one knows who they are but it certainly doesn t live up to its interesting premise It sounded to me like something fast paced and gripping, but even Pretty Little Liars is cooler than this Seriously.Firstly, as far as I can see having read this book, they aren t really pretenders They re not even that fake, they don t hide deep, dark secrets Vanessa works mad [...]

    24. I had heard decent things about another of this author s series completely based in that tween teen angst and issues, with some characters that were actually ones you could call friend Sadly, the hopes that I had for this book were not met, and the lack of any sort of resolution for any of the characters with the ending that was less cliff hanger and a badly placed The End really had me frustrated with the story The premise is that the most popular five students in a prestigious school have had [...]

    25. One star seems like far too much to give to this book I have no idea what I was thinking when I read this book for the first time in seventh grade and I also have no idea what I was thinking when I decided to reread it a few days ago Maybe I have a thing for boring myself to death with overly exaggerated cliche high school drama stories with no closure Nevertheless this was one of the worst books I have ever read and it was so very shallow but that s understandable since this came from the write [...]

    26. So why am I m still buying books by Lisi Harrison Although, I m not a huge fan of her writing style and constant puns Well, to be honest I mildly enjoy The Clique, I still have to finish The Alphas and Monsters High is probably the only book I love by her And The Pretenders sounded promising Keyword promising The book is actually written in a journal style format, so it was actually easier and quicker to read through them The plot is center around five noble high students who write their thought [...]

    27. Full version at The Rave Library.Rating 4 5 starsWhat is it about The five most popular students The Phoenix Five journals are leaked by some mysterious source named X Phonie X for short, because it s cooler The main goal is to show the journals to the world that these five students are not that perfect as it seems and there are some dark secrets that they are no way to show it to anyone.Review Oh, you know Lisi Harrison Her books usually features MCs in their early teens that talk like middle t [...]
