Happy Saturday, everyone!
Courtesy of ABC Family, we have an awesome giveaway for two TV Shows that also happen to be books – The Secret Life of An American Teenager and Pretty Little Liars.
The Secret Life of the American Teenager
About the Show: Just about every teenager at one time or another feels like an outsider, as if nobody in the world understands them, especially their parents. The Secret Life of the American Teenager focuses on the complex relationships between teenagers and their families, as well as dealing with the issue of teen pregnancy and the fallout among the teens and their friends.
About the Book: The Secret Diary of Ashley Juergens is a new book inspired by Secret Life that goes on sale June 15, 2010.
I got called into Principal Miller’s office again. She handed me a notebook. This notebook. She told me keeping a journal is an excellent way to express oneself. So I have to write in this stupid thing and turn it in at the end of each month.
Little does she know what she’s in for. With everything that’s been going on—Amy’s band camp pregnancy, my parents’ divorce, a secret wedding—it’s practically one- stop shopping for all your Grant High gossip needs.
Property of Ashley Juergens. Read at your own risk (especially you, Amy).
All new episodes of The Secret Life Of The American Teenager air on ABC Family’s Mondays at 8/7c. You can read more about the show (and check out a ton of extras) online at the official website HERE.
Pretty Little Liars
About the Show: Pretty Little Liars is the newest original ABC Family series airing Tuesday nights at 8/7c, and stars Lucy Hale [Privileged], Troian Bellisario [NCIS], Shay Mitchell, Ashley Benson [Eastwick, Days Of Our Lives], Laura Leighton [Melrose Place], and Chad Lowe .
Rosewood is a perfect little town. So quiet and pristine, you’d never guess it holds so many secrets. Some of the ugliest ones belong to the prettiest girls in town — Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily, four estranged friends whose darkest secrets are about to unravel.
One year ago, Alison, the Queen Bee of their group, disappeared and the girls swore they’d never tell what really happened that night. They thought their secrets would bond them together, but just the opposite is true. Then again, who’s to say what the truth is in Rosewood. It seems everyone in town is lying about something.
Now, as the mystery surrounding Alison’s disappearance resurfaces, the girls begin getting messages from “A,” saying – and threatening – things only Alison would know. But it couldn’t be Alison. Could it? Whoever it is, they seem to know all the girls’ secrets, and seem to be watching their every move. The girls are friends again, but will they be there for each other if their dark secrets come to light?
About the Book: Pretty Little Liars is a young adult novel by Sara Shepard, and has been reissued with a new cover.
Everyone has something to hide—especially high school juniors spencer, aria, emily, and hanna.
Spencer covets her sister’s boyfriend. Aria’s fantasizing about her English teacher. Emily’s crushing on the new girl at school. Hanna uses some ugly tricks to stay beautiful.
But they’ve all kept an even bigger secret since their friend Alison vanished.
How do I know? Because I know everything about the bad girls they were, the naughty girls they are, and all the dirty secrets they’ve kept. And guess what? I’m telling.
You can read more about the show at its official website HERE, and more about the series of books at the author’s official site HERE.

I have been watching Pretty Little Liars because I want to know who murdered her and what the story is with the blind girl!
CassieJune 19, 2010 at 1:04 am
Dang. Did I miss it???
Had I not, I would say Pretty Little Liars(!), because I love to find the secrets behind people’s stories 🙂 Everything is not as it seems 😉
CassandraJune 19, 2010 at 1:08 am
I am watching Pretty Little Liars, because I loved the books. I’m up to Killer (6) so far, and it’s because of Sara Shepard and the pretty little liars that I’ve begun to read again. The TV series is fun, mysterious (though i know the gist of things, and it’s a lot faster than the books so there’s a lot less mystery in the TV show). The cast is great, and IMO the acting is good. So, reasons:
1. Loyalty to the books
2. Great cast and acting
3. Good music
It doesn’t even matter to me that I know what The Jenna Thing is. I still wait until I can finally watch the next episode. I guess it also replaces LOST, in a sense, and until How I Met Your Mother comes back. (hopefully it’ll pick up and be AWESOME again)
Thanks for the great contest!
AdrienneJune 19, 2010 at 2:35 am
Because I am addicted to CW like shows, I’m watching Pretty Little Liars. It has really good plot for a “YA” show and it spoon feeds you enough mystery that you have to watch the next week.
Thanks for the contest, it is a good one! 😀
EmilyJune 19, 2010 at 4:52 am
I watch Pretty Little Liars. I though the pilot was much stronger than the following episode – I’m hoping they bounce back with next week’s show.
rhapsodyinbooksJune 19, 2010 at 5:17 am
I’d like to watch The Secret Life because I love those sorts of YA diary shows.

I watch Pretty Little Liars because I’ve read all the books and loved them!
TaragelJune 19, 2010 at 6:52 am
Been watching Pretty Little Liars. It’s very cute so far. The mystery of whose behind the texts has a lot of possible solutions I think.
Jen D.June 19, 2010 at 7:27 am
Thanks to my sister I watch both The Secret Life of the American Teenager and Pretty Little Liars. Once you start watching you can’t walk away.
Jacqueline C.June 19, 2010 at 8:15 am
I’ve been watching Pretty Little Liars so far. I haven’t read the books yet, but I’ve been meaning to try them. The show is pretty juicy and I’m curious about how much of the scandal and mystery is straight from the novel. And, of course, I want to know where the heck A is and how she’s been aware of everyone secrets when she’s supposedly dead.
Tiffany M.June 19, 2010 at 9:05 am
I’d like to watch The Secret Life because a couple of my friends have mentioned it to me. Also, I have seen and heard much about the show, too. I have only heard of Pretty Little Liars on blogs so far with one trailer.
Paola B.June 19, 2010 at 9:16 am
I am hooked on Pretty Little Liars. The mystery that surrounds this show is why I can’t get enough. When you think you know what’s going on, something happens that completely destroys your theory. I also happen to think that all of the characters are really interesting.

I’ve been watching Pretty Little Liars and have been enjoying it! tWarner419@aol.com

I’ve just started watching Pretty Little Liars and am enjoying its trashy quality immensely! I haven’t read the books yet though so I’d love a chance to read one.
Beverly H.June 19, 2010 at 9:50 am
I’d like to watch Pretty Little Liars because the secrets and drama are definitely fun to watch! Thanks for this contest! 🙂
AllieJune 19, 2010 at 10:24 am
I have to admit that I’m a sucker for most anything on ABCFamily. I’m especially enjoying Pretty Little Liars – I love trying to figure out the secrets before they’re revealed!
katiaJune 19, 2010 at 10:44 am
I love secrets so I’ll check it out!
Mitali (Alley of Books)June 19, 2010 at 10:47 am
I watch Pretty little Liars and I’d love to win the book because I haven’t read it! I’d love to see how many changes they’re made!
Thanks for the giveaway!

I only recently started watching The Secret Life, and my nephew keeps on telling me to watch Pretty Little Liars.
joderJune 19, 2010 at 12:29 pm
I’ve watched a few episodes of Secret Life and would love to win that prize so I can see all the eps. I liked the realistic portrayal of teenagers and honest interactions among themselves and their parents and wish more shows had teenagers going through these realistic struggles instead of living the ritzy fake life.
EricaJune 19, 2010 at 12:38 pm
I watch Pretty Little Liars – I still have to watch last weeks episode, but I absolutely loved the first episode. I thought the idea of the books sounded really great, but I wasn’t a big fan – so I decided to watch the show to see if I liked it better. I have watched a few episodes of Secret Life, but I haven’t had a chance to watch them all yet – but I plan on it!
KaylaJune 19, 2010 at 1:37 pm
I watch Pretty Little Liars– it’s dark and mysterious, and I’m looking forward to seeing how badly they want to keep their secrets, and what they’re willing to sacrifice in order to do so.
ShootingStarsMagJune 19, 2010 at 1:42 pm
I watch Pretty Little Liars because it’s interesting and mysterious.
Sue RJune 19, 2010 at 1:50 pm
I watch Pretty Liars. I am hooked on the mystery behind the texts. I enjoy shows that have hidden secrets between characters. 😀
MeganJune 19, 2010 at 4:32 pm
Haven’t watched it yet, but kinda wanna watch Pretty Little Liars. I like a good teen drama with a lot of mystery! 🙂
Victoria ZumbrumJune 19, 2010 at 5:12 pm
I never watched either movie but I am very interested in watching both of them and I would love to read the books. Please enter me in contest. Thank you. Tore923@aol.com
JenniferJune 19, 2010 at 5:40 pm
I would just LOVE to watch Pretty Little Liars! Since I don’t have cable, I can’t watch TV shows, and that is why I am just RAVING about this giveaway. Why would I like to watch it? Because I read the BOOKS! The books were amazing, so now I want to watch the show. 😀
coriesJune 19, 2010 at 5:54 pm
I like The Secret Life because of Molly Ringwald. There, I admit it! 🙂
MissieJune 19, 2010 at 5:57 pm
I’m interested in Pretty Litter Liars because I’ve heard a lot of great things about the books. Anything that is good enough to get it’s own show has lots of potential! 😉
vvbJune 19, 2010 at 6:20 pm
i’d like to start watching Pretty Little Liars. have been out of it and didn’t realize it was on already. been liking the book covers and premise but just haven’t started reading it yet.
Myra CJune 19, 2010 at 6:35 pm
I watch Secret Life, once you watch you can’t stop.
PaigeJune 19, 2010 at 6:52 pm
I like pretty little liars because the storyline is intriguing. I also like how the characters seem perfect but are flawed.
Kelly H.June 19, 2010 at 6:56 pm
I watch Pretty Little Liars because of things I have heard about the books online, even though I have yet to read one myself! I also like a bit of mystery. 😀
MelanieJune 19, 2010 at 7:23 pm
I haven’t seen (or read) either, but I will have to check out both of them. I do love stories with dark secrets and mystery.
Chelsea B.June 19, 2010 at 7:33 pm
I watch Pretty Little Liars and sometimes watch Secret Life. Most of the time, I just ask friends what happens on that show 😉
BethieJune 19, 2010 at 10:01 pm
Please count me in. I hope I am not too late!
Donna SJune 19, 2010 at 10:28 pm
I have been watching Pretty Little Liars and I have to admit I was hooked easily wanting to find out the secrets. Never watched Secret Life.
Lisa RichardsJune 20, 2010 at 4:34 pm
I love Pretty Little Liars but haven’t seen Secret Life.
NicoleJune 20, 2010 at 8:14 pm
I watch both shows every week. Secret Life has gotten a little wacky for me, but I still like it overall. Pretty Little Liars is interesting because I’d seen the books and have wanted to read them and I’m kind of using the show to gauge how much I’d like the books (under the pretense that the books are probably better – of course).
jenniferAugust 4, 2010 at 11:47 am
So i watch pretty little liars because at first i saw it on seventeen mag so i went on the compurter for more infromation i begging to be obsessed with it even if the first episode ddnt came out yet but i went to chapters to buy the books & now im am so obsessed.
Mae C..September 15, 2010 at 11:11 pm
