Review: Honestly, I thought it lagged. Unless was such a fast paced, interesting read. Pretties just felt slow and rather boring. And it brought in the heaven forbid love triangle, which had becime cliche. Despite having a few interesting concept, Pretties did not make me want to read the next installment, Specials.
