My Latest Obsession is a new post that I will be doing every now and then featuring something I'm obsessed with. It could be anything from a song to a cartoon character, it all just depends on my mood.
My latest obsession is the TV show Pretty Little Liars!
I used to be obsessed with the Pretty Little Liars books by Sara Shepard. I would rush out to buy them the day they came out and I'd usually be up late into the night reading them. They were so suspenseful and just plain awesome. When I heard about the TV show, I was skeptical and I refused to watch it. That all changed when I was home sick one day and the only thing I could find to watch was a Pretty Little Liars marathon. I was hooked after that.
I admit, I cheated. I started watching Pretty Little Liars in the middle of season 2 without watching season 1 or the first half of season 2. I was a little confused but not enough for me to stop watching. It was only recently that I actually sat down to watch the episodes that I missed. Admittedly, the first few episodes weren't the best but the show really hit it's stride mid-season 1. All the actors fit the characters from the book perfectly and I honestly adore them all (even the ones I love to hate.)
My biggest worry about the show was that I would see all the surprises coming since I'd read the books. That was so not the case. The writers of the show really switched things up. I am always just as shocked as everyone else when a new secret is revealed. Normally I don't like movies/TV shows that really deviate from the books but in this case it really works.
Do you watch Pretty Little Liars? What do you think of it?
