pretty little liars #8

Back in middle school, Ali plucked Emily, Hanna, Aria, and Spencer from obscurity and turned them into the beautiful, popular girls everyone wanted to be.  Ali was the best friend they ever had.  But she also made them do terrible things and taunted them with their worst secrets.  Now, three years later, all their questions about Ali have finally been answered and they can put this awful chapter of their lives behind them.  Or so they think.

I've been really disappointed with this series for awhile now.  I think after the second book the whole thing got really old and annoying.  I was expecting much of the same for Wanted, but I was actually pleasantly surprised.

Now, let's not get ahead of ourselves.  The girls are still incredibly dumb and irritating, but the story itself was finally coming around to an honest-to-goodness conclusion and that's all I wanted.  When all is revealed everything made sense and all the pieces fit together.  Finally, an end.

Well, not really.  As we all know at this point, this is book #8 and there are currently 14 books in the series (not counting Pretty Little Secrets or Ali's Little Lies) with the 15th coming out in June.  So either things aren't as resolved as we thought they were or these idiot girls do more dumb stuff.  Or a combination of both.  I'm kind of bummed that there are more books because I would have been satisfied with this ending (Kate getting her due justice would have been even better, but alas).  So we'll see what kind of trouble these girls get into next.
