Beautiful. Perfect. Dead.

In the peaceful seaside town of Cape Bonita, wicked secrets and lies are hidden just beneath the surface. But all it takes is one tragedy for them to be exposed.

The most popular girls in school are turning up dead, and Penelope Malone is terrified she’s next. All the victims so far have been linked to Penelope—and to a boy from her physics class. The one she’s never really noticed before, with the rumored dark past and a brooding stare that cuts right through her.

There’s something he isn’t telling her. But there’s something she’s not telling him, either.

Everyone has secrets, and theirs might get them killed.


“Watch out, Pretty Little Liars, there’s a new girl in town. Monica Murphy hits it out of the park!” —#1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken

descriptionThis book was highly entertaining. Part PRETTY LITTLE LIARS, part MEAN GIRLS, part SCREAM QUEENS, I couldn't put it down and ended up reading it from cover to cover. I had to go back to check if I had read anything from this author before but I have not. An oversight I will be correcting soon.

Somebody is killing off the mean girls at school....and Penelope might be next.

This was a quick and easy read.. I read half of it at the hairdressers! I could easily see this as a teen movie. Thanks to Entangled Publishing via Netgalley for a copy of this book to read and review ...more

Release Date: January 2, 2018
Genre: Young Adult Murder Mystery (Thriller. Suspense)

When I first started reading this book I immediately thought it was going to be a replication of a movie from the early 90's called Death of a Cheerleader . I thought this because the opening scene is a popula... ...more

I had read several romance books during the past week and felt it was time for something different and wanted a mystery novel and some murder. I picked up one before this and couldn't get into it and then I remembered that I had Monica Murphy's new one - Pretty Dead Girls. I had been looking for... ...more

Pretty Dead Girls

I'm a huge fan of Monica Murphy and would happily read anything she writes. Pretty Dead Girls is a little different to her usual books, but I still loved every minute of it. This book is perfect for the Mean Girls and Pretty Little Liars fans. It has typical teen drama, but... ...more

By Angie December 16, 2017

Pretty Dead Girls is a book exactly what it’s title says. There are a group of girls in HS called the Larks. It’s the most coveted group to be in. Basically this group opens doors for you if you’re a lark and not just anyone gets in. You either have to be a legacy and that still doesn’t guarantee... ...more

**Thanks to NetGalley for providing me a complimentary copy of PRETTY DEAD GIRLS by Monica Murphy in exchange for my honest review**

The murders of Penelope’s friends, the popular, stuck-up girls from her prep school, have her scared she’s next. She teams up with Cass, an outcast with a bad reputa... ...more

By Emily December 15, 2017

This was a quick read. One that would be good for someone into mystery. I am more of a Fantasy/Scifi reader but this was a good one to take a break from my normal genre. A little predictable, but there were a couple chapters that had me suspect several characters as the serial killer.

Overall, i... ...more

If you love a page-turner, this is it. Thank goodness for my kindle, because I took it with me EVERYWHERE, not wanting to put PRETTY DEAD GIRLS down. However, if you are looking for a novel where you connect with the characters and hope they don't end up dead...this isn't it.

Don't get me wrong, I... ...more

Lovely new mystery book! This is the story of the town of Cape Bonita and the way the deaths of popular senior girls rocks the community. Told in alternating viewpoints from Penelope, senior and leader of the Lark's (a community service group) and the killer who is causing chaos, the story grabs... ...more

I was looking for something different to read and this book was just the thing. The cover of this book is so beautiful but the title makes you feel there is more than meets the eye. I was hook after only reading a few pages. The plot, writing, pace I loved it all. There is a darkness that settles... ...more

This YA thriller from Monica Murphy is going to slay the shelves!
I finished around midnight and decided to sleep before writing my review- because y'all deserve a well written review- not incoherent excited babble. Right?

So let's just preface this with the knowledge that this book takes place in... ...more

By Samantha December 09, 2017

This is my first book by this author and it was pretty good. I will say though I wasn’t the biggest fan of the female characters. Specially Penny. Typical snotty rich popular high school girls. Penny was epically mean to Cass at times and I just wanted to smack her. I did really enjoy Cass charac... ...more

By Paris December 10, 2017

This book reminded me of movies like Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer and of the tv show Scream Queens. It’s a lot of fun and extremely campy. The mystery of who the killer is was actually pretty good. I had an idea about who it was and was actually in the right ballpark for most of the... ...more

Wow. Pretty Dead Girls is one outstanding read. Be prepared to hold on to your seats for this one. I know I did. I loved trying to figure out the who did it. And boy was not expecting that one. I love Cass and Penelope. They are just strong relatable teens. You get the typical teen drama and mean... ...more

I thought this was a great story. I enjoyed the mystery. It was suspenseful and fun at times and there was even a romance in the story. It is a great read. I will admit that it was a little predictable though. However, that being said, it held my attention. I read this in one setting as I was int... ...more

We would not buy as it is not the focus of our special library that mostly focuses on healthful eating and cooking, food security and social issues... the only reason why not buying.
