Review: Pretty Dead Girls, Monica Murphy

Title: Pretty Dead Girls

Genre: Young Adult, Romantic Suspense

Author: Monica Murphy

Release Date: January 2, 2018

Beautiful. Perfect. Dead. They’re arranged in a particular way. Their faces turned at the most flattering angles, their designer clothes immaculate, as immaculate as their carefully made-up faces. Only the slash of blood across their necks mars the perfect surface. Only the vacant stare in their eyes indicates they’re dead. The most popular girls in school are going down, and Penelope Malone is terrified she’s next. All the victims so far have been linked to Penelope—and to the mysterious loner boy from her physics class. The one with the lopsided smirk and intense stare that’s almost…cute? Even though she’s not sure she can trust him, she reluctantly agrees to work with him to figure out what’s happening. All while trying to stay one step ahead of the brutal serial killer on the loose. But this killer won’t be satisfied until every beautiful, popular girl in the senior class is dead—especially Penelope. And the killer is closer than she thinks…

I'm so happy that I got to read a book along the same lines of One of Us is Lying!! I had loved that book and I really wanted to read more of the same genre and vibes and this was the perfect fit!

I really enjoyed it!! It wasn't as good as OOUIL but still pretty great. You are reeled into the story from the very first chapters, not just wanting to know who the murderer is but also who all the characters are, the possible suspects, the guy who everyone thinks is weird, the mean girl that goes crazy, everyone.

It was pretty clever of Monica to give us a couple of chapters from the murderer's pov, they tell you little by little why this person is doing what she's doing and also will give you a couple of clues from time to time. It was brilliant!

I really liked Penelope, even though she was also a 'mean girl', deep down she really wasn't, it was just the image she had to keep as a legacy. And boy did I enjoy the budding relationship between her and Cass and how their relationship developed into more, it was cute! And I'm glad that in the hand, with all the people she lost, she at least gained him.

We’re kissing for kissing’s sake. There’s no end game, no trying to get into each other’s pants or get each other off, as Courtney so eloquently put it. And it feels so good, to get lost in Cass’s arms and lips for a while, to forget about my troubles, to concentrate on the delicious slide of his tongue against mine, his hands in my hair, the race of his heart and the heat of his skin.
