Wanted by Sara Shepard
Book 8 in the Pretty Little Liars series

This is the PLL book I've been waiting for, this is the five star instalment I went through 8 books to get to, and boy, was it worth the wait!

Funny story, so, after reading Ugly Love, I decided to pick this one up and read a couple pages... next thing I knew I was finished...

This book was just incredible, it had everything you could want in a Sara Shepard book, and more.
The creepy level was so high though, it actually took me a wh

Wanted (Pretty Little Liars #8), Sara Shepard

Aria, Hanna, Emily and Spencer are shocked to learn of the existence of Alison's twin sister, Courtney, when she's introduced at a press conference. Courtney had spent her life in institutions due to "health issues" and her existence was kept secret by her family. It is revealed that Jason was not a patient at the Radley but instead he was visiting Courtney. She was finally released and went home to Rosewood, where she attempts to resume her sister's

I really enjoyed the entire series. I know they're geared more towards teenagers, but these are so well written and thought out that I can't help, but be a little hooked as an adult reading these.

I don't think the gist of the entire plot was obvious to every single reader, but I had mostly everything solved reading the first book. I'm like that, obnoxiously so (my best friend thinks watching Criminal Intent & CSI: NY with me is the most hilarious thing. I solve the entire case in 15 minutes. It

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you'll save
Better lock it, in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you
Won't tell what I said
Cause two can keep a secret
If one of the m is dead…

so this is it?? this is finally over?

the whole PLL series made my world turn upside down , after i finished reading each book in the series i always come up with my own theories on who is A and who murdered Alison but sadly none of my theories is correct. not even one of them is co

Wow, I'm still trying to unravel the last bit of the book and sort out who was who and who did what. It was a very interesting read and I highly recommend it. All the girls go through character development which I like. The story is multi-faceted and really quite intriguing. I can't wait to read the next books that take place a year later. Kisses! ...more

These girls are so dumb.

First, let's just mention the first line in the author acknowledgements:
It is with a heavy heart that I write the acknowledgements for the last book in the Pretty Little Liars series.

Yeah, I call bull shit as there still 8 more. I'm thinking it should have just ended here.

Now onto this book. Ali is back. But she's pretending to be her twin sister Courtney who was actually pretending to be Ali when she died. Got it? Everyone's just pret

I am pretty sure this one has been my favorite so far. So many things happened that I didn't see coming and it is so different from the show. I am starting to wish that the show followed the books a little more closely. In this installment, we learn that Alison actually had a twin sister that almost nobody knew about. Huh...didn't see that coming. Apparently, she was a patient at Radley, not Jason...he was just visiting her. So I guess the family kept her hidden out of shame? The girls all becom ...more

Wow! That was a near perfect ending. But why has Sara Shepard written another 4 books? :\

So..... is 'A' truly 'A'?

Regardless, as long as Shepard writes them, i'll happily continue reading them.

My favorite Pretty Little Liar has to go to Spencer! (even though I love them all) :)

Well, it’s no lie that this book got me into my current slump but I finally finished it! Not saying it wasn’t entertaining.. this series does a good job of that I just get too distracted reading it. I honestly just want to finish this series already 😴

Well, I officially know who A is, again.. New A I suppose, or always actually really was A. Sara Shepard is seriously addicting, and after seeing the awesome new episode, I had to just get it over with, and learn who A was. I'm still going to watch the show of course, everyone says they will switch it up, but I don't think they should. The ending to this book was great. I'm still team Hannah she is my favorite Pretty Little Liar, but this entire book felt like a really juicy Lifetime movie. The ...more

The second to last novel in the Pretty Little Liars series--Wanted--by Sara Shepard, tells the story of the twisted fate of four girls from a small Pennsylvania town called Rosewood. Aria, Spencer, Emily, and Hanna lost their best friend Ali during a strange, mysterious night four years ago. They discovered important, life-altering facts about her disappearance in each book leading up to this and have found out so much about her passing that they refuse to stop now. Taking place in a modern day ...more

Short Review: I loved this book, it
Ahhh. Birds are chirping, kids are laughing, and another one bites the dust. All of this could only happen in Rosewood, Pennsylvania. A town with wealth, pride, and enough secrets to drown itself. But, theres a catch. All of these secrets belong to four Pretty Little Liars. Aria, Spencer, Hanna, and Emily are back for another freightning adventure in Sara Shepard's 8th installment; Wanted. Last time we saw these girls Jenna was pronounced dead. Therefore, alot more questions to be answered. In " ...more

So freaking amazing. I read the others books in the series and absolutely adored all of them. Some of the best books I've ever read. Once you start reading you just can't put it down. You just have to keep reading. I definitely reccomend you check these books out. *little tiny spoiler* The ending, kinda left me hanging with what it said on the last page but i was still very pleased with the ending.

The book, Wanted, from the Pretty Little Liars series written by Sara Shepard, is fantabulous. I had so many favorite parts that I can't just choose one! She had many descriptive passages which lead me to read more and more. She ended every chapter with suspense and mystery. I couldn't wait to read more of what she wrote. I believe Sara Shepard had good diction as well. Some of the words that displayed good diction are "clandestine", "sleep-crusted eyes", etc. I especially like when she used "sl ...more

Alright, great. Last book in the series. The acknowledgements thank everyone for sticking with these god awful books for 8 long "novels" now. Ends all tied up, neat like this:

Perfect. I'm done with this shit.

But wait. I see there's a PLL book 9. And 10. And 11. And, oh, look, book 12 is coming out this year.

You know, Sara Shepard. It's great that you make gobs and gobs of money from writing these god awful plots. It's fabulous that little Twilight fans who don't know what a good novel is eat it

So horrible that I am actually angry I read past the fourth book, which I believe was the original end of this series. I can't imagine this shit continuing for another four books, it has gotten so contrived. Yeah, so ranting about the eighth book in the Pretty Little Liars series is sort of like buying one of those 99 cent frozen pizzas and going "WHY DOES THIS TASTE LIKE NOTHING I DEMAND TO KNOW", but it managed to be sort of witty and relatively thrilling into even the sixth book!

This was supposed to be the last book in this series (and then it got 8 more). I liked the ending and I would have been fine with it if this had been it. However, I'm excited to read the next arc at some point. Hopefully the new A will be a bit more scary before he/she reveals him/herself. This A was just giggling and showing blond hair everywhere and it didn't have the same tension that you could feel in the first arc. I also got spoiled on a big twist that was revealed in this arc, that might ...more

This book is really good and it's the next volume after Heartless, the book that I read before.

Now that Billy Ford, the man who people think killed Ali, is arrested, the four pretty little liars thought they will be happy. But suddenly, Mrs. Dilaurentis, Ali's mom, said to everybody that they had another daughter, which was the twin sister of Ali. The four girls got so surprised and angry at Ali that she didn't tell them. While the girls were now friend with the twin, whose name is Courtney, eve

this book is an amazing book. a book that told me not all friends are good not all friends are bad. you should just be able to choose the correct friend. a friend that you can help and can help you to. not a friend that changes your personality and makes you do bad stuff.

The book is about 4 Best Friends that were not popular and a girl called Alison make them do bad stuff but turned them into popular girls everyone wanted to be.

The 4 girls think they have a clear image of what happened the night

This book like more than the last book :) I'm so excited for read the next one ^-^
Finally I know the true about all the mistery *-*
I really enjoy it!

Ali has a twin Courtney who's actually Ali. I give up. At this point I'm not figuring out the end on my own. There's no way.

Literally everyone is dead... are they coming back...or?

I'm still super hyped to read the rest and that's a good sign because a few books ago I considered quitting.
