Unbelievable is the fourth book in the Pretty Little Liars series. I started reading the series when I was in high school when the TV show came out. It seems like at the time, most of what I read came from the TV shows that I was watching. Anyway, I started the book series in high school, and I’ve read it since then. I actually still haven’t finished the Pretty Little Liars book series (and the TV Show too). It’s a really long series, and it’s not as appealing to me, at 25 as it was when I was 16. But I still like to read it from time to time…
Unbelievable was actually the first book I bought myself on Kindle because I wanted to read it, but I have limited shelf space…
The Pretty Little Liars’ life definitely took a sinister turn. Most of their lives they have lived being popular, happy, and, worst of all, careless. They will now have to live with fear and ceaseless doubts because A certainly isn’t over with them.
So, which one do you think is next on the list?
So, where to start? Unbelievable is kind of the book that made me stop reading Pretty Little Liars so fast. I had read the first three books in about a year (I was in high school in France. I had a lot of mandatory reading which is why I took so long reading it) and was eager to read more. And I was kind of disappointed when I got to this one.
I won’t say that Unbelievable is terrible, that’s not that. It was a great book, and some of the mysteries set up at the beginning of the series were finally resolved. It’s just that it didn’t make me want to know what happened next. Maybe it was because I was finishing high school at that time and discovered other writers that I liked better. Perhaps it was the constant name dropping of brands that I just couldn’t stand anymore. It was probably a healthy mix of all of this. But no matter what, after reading Unbelievable, I kind of felt like it was the end of the series or an end to the series. I still kept on reading it, obviously, but it didn’t feel the same to me.
Should you read it?
At this point, you should probably start reading the series at the beginning because you might not follow the whole story.
And of course, don’t let my kind of a disappointment for Unbelievable be any indication of whether you should start the series or not. Even I continued reading the series, so it must not have been that big of a disappointment after all.
