Wanted is the eighth book of the Pretty Little Liars series. If you’re interested in other books in the series, you can find all the reviews I did at the end of this article.
Hanna, Aria, Spencer, and Emily have been through a lot together—childhood pranks have gone horribly wrong, not one, but two stalkers—blackmailers who know all their dirty secrets, not to mention their best friend’s murder investigation. Now, these pretty little liars are finally going to uncover all the answers they’ve been searching for, and they can finally put this awful chapter of their lives behind them. Or so they think.
I know that before, I’ve said that the series was really so-so for me. And up until that point, it was the case. But Wanted really turned things around for me.
First, the characters are way better than ever before. They are less whiny, less entitled than before. I’ve always preferred Hanna in the TV Show, but I have to say that I don’t really have a favorite in the book. They were all the same. But with Wanted, they all kind of grew into better, way more interesting characters than before.
What is also really great about this book is the plot. In the rest of the series so far, all of the books went the same way. A did something to screw with them. They try to fix it, and it makes a way bigger mess than before. But this time, the book really keeps you on your toes and mostly keeps you guessing about what happens next.
Should you read Wanted?
I still would say don’t read it. I series shouldn’t have to take eight books to become so interesting. And still, it’s not the best book I ever read. But if you’re interested in a light read, then give the Pretty Little Liars series a shot!
