While we all know it as our favorite ABC Family thriller, Pretty Little Liars actually got its start as a book series by Sara Shepard. Consisting of sixteen series novels and two special edition novels, series centers around four friends Spencer Hastings, Hanna Marin, Aria Montgomery and Emily Fields, who are tortured by a mysterious figure known as “A” that threatens to spill some of their darkest secrets. The girls are also trying to cope with the murder of their friend/sometimes torturer Alison DiLaurentis. However, these pretty little liars can’t seem to stay out of trouble, and their secrets just get darker as the series progresses. Just like the television show, the books are filled with twists and turns that keep readers guessing until the very last page as the girls try to figure out who killed their friend and bring down “A.” Fans do not need to worry about either format spoiling the other as the outcome of many plot lines and fates of various characters differ greatly from what airs on ABC Family. A roller coaster from the first book to the last, Pretty Little Liars is a series that will keeping you wanting more with each volume. (It’s also a great way to kill time until the PLL premiere in January.)
