    1 thought on “Pretty Wanted

    1. Sadly, this series is over, and not on the best note After reading the first two books, I felt invested in the characters lives, but then Willa s ending didn t satisfy me I won t go into spoiler details, but I will say that Willa and Tre need closure Overall 2 5 stars I was glad to see Leslie have her happy ending.

    2. One thing that I often dislike as a reader, is when you get hooked on a series and then it finishes, you know it has to finish but it s sad at the same time as you have to say Goodbye to those characters forever, unless you are a re reader which sadly I am not Reading the last book in the Pretty Crooked series, made me remember back when I picked up the first book on as it sounded like a fun read and readers, it has definitely been a heck of a ride with this series as in Book 1 it started off wi [...]

    3. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss This was a really good end to the series, and in my opinion the best book in the trilogy.I liked Willa in this, she still made some silly decisions, but she seemed a little mature, and thought about things a bit rather than acting quite so impulsively I think Aidan helped with this a bit though, as he seemed a little sensible in this book too.The storyline in this was pretty [...]

    4. Find reviews at Pretty Bad I thought I would love this one I really did As a fan of Pretty Crooked and Pretty Sly, I was ready to devour and fall in love with the last installment in this series And, unfortunately, that just never happened.Right from the beginning, there were small things that started to annoy me Willa s character, Aidan, their attitudes, and even the writing There didn t seem to be anything major just a few bad word choices here, a stupid action there, and a couple of idiotic [...]

    5. What I liked I love being able to read an entire series in one go, because if one ends in a cliffhanger then I can immediately pick up the next one and continue on without having to wait sometimes a few years for the next book I m looking at you, Shadow Scale I have wait for you since I readSeraphina three years ago but at the same time, It s always a little nostalgic in a sense if I get attached to the characters And funnily enough, I got attached to Aiden and Willa through their crazy adventur [...]

    6. Hands down, in my opinion, Pretty Wanted is the best in the trilogy The puzzle was complete, things made sense, Willa has grown to mature young adult and did the unexpected It was a good ending to the series.We learned in Pretty Sly, Willa s mother is actually her older sister She learns her mother has been murdered Even though she is in trouble with the law, she wants to uncover the truth of her past and takes a journey to reveal the truth Pretty Wanted is this journey.I was pleased with the en [...]

    7. Man, I didn t love the first two books in this series, but revisiting it for the third really shows how this series kind of slowed into a mishmash of overly familiar plotting and the tire Bonnie and Clyde thing Given the struggles with the first two I had, throwing in the towel on book 3 made sense for me even if Elisa Ludwig is forging her own interesting path in the greater YA genre.

    8. If I had any worries about being able to catch up with Willa and company in book three, they were quickly erased within the first few pages Ludwig does a nice job of bringing the reader up to speed on Willa s exploits they re heading to St Louis to put the final pieces of the puzzle regarding her mother Aidan, that trusty mischief maker is with her as they dodge the authorities and make due with what little cash and resources they have I can t believe they re still at it but Willa s a stubborn y [...]

    9. Pretty Wanted picks up where Pretty Sly leaves off, although it s interesting how each book in the series focuses on it s own part of the story Put together they make the whole picture In Pretty Wanted, Willa and Aidan are still on the run but are now trying to track down information on Willa s mother There is no way to avoid spoilers from the first books in this review, I just want to put that out there.This leg of the series has us put on our crime solving thinking caps on After Willa discover [...]

    10. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review This review may contain spoilers.I haven t read the previous two books in this series, but I didn t find that it detracted from my enjoyment of this book I was able to pick up the storyline quickly and easily and I was able to understand the motivations of the main characters.I found Willa a really easy character to get behind It was nice that I was able to learn about her past through little snippets and mentions of it throughout the [...]

    11. Thus ends a series that had so much potential but failed to deliver My attempt to finish books extends to series as well, so that s why I continued reading after the first book Ludwig s idea for a modern Robin Hood did not quite register for me in the first installment, and the plot elaboration in the following two books felt like of a chore to read than the excitement this genre promises The books were not bad at all, and I did enjoy certain aspects of Ludwig s writing, but at times she attemp [...]

    12. This book picked up with Aidan and Willa in St Louis trying to figure out about Brianna, her mother In the end Willa finds out that Brianna was part of a group with Chet, Granger, and Bailey that stole money from a bank in order to give it back to the community After the heist there was a hit and run that resulted in a boy being paralyzed After this Brianna wanted to be done with the group and wanted to come forward, so she moved to another place in St Louis and changed her name She was already [...]

    13. Willa Fox is still on the run with Aiden at her side After life changing revelations about Willa s past and family, they find themselves in St Luis investigating her mothers murder Willa has to take a hard look at who she is, who she wants to be, and what she is doing She reaches an ultimatum turn herself in and face the consequences or live a life on the run forever Will the Sly Fox live on My Thoughts I loved this book, it is the perfect ending to the trilogy You really got to see Willa grow a [...]

    14. I received a copy of this novel through the First Reads program for free.I enjoyed this trilogy at first, Willa Fox was the new girl in a small, rich town because her artsy, mysterious, youg mother had a variety of business ventures that meant she had to move her and Willa all over the country who was able to attend an extravagant private school Soon, she realizes that the wealth is spread rather unfairly and decides to help the scholarship kids ala Robin Hood.The novel was a bit stereotypical, [...]

    15. Willa and Aidan are on the run after a string of thefts that earned Willa the moniker of the Sly Fox This time they aren t on a crime spree exactly, but are looking for Willa s mother or at least the story behind why she was murdered.A fast paced suspenseful story that s a great adventure and a thrill to read I admit that, as an adult, I had issues with how frequently Willa and Aidan borrowed cars and houses and food, etc But when I think like a teenager, I found this book great fun It s the fin [...]

    16. Solid ending to the trilogy with good pacing and plotting, plus it ties up loose ends from the previous books and solves the mystery of what happened to Willa s mom Would recommend the trilogy to teens and older who like a little humor with their mystery.Bonus it doesn t feel too implausible and there are real consequences for the characters.

    17. Compared to the first 2 novels, this last novel in the series just wasn t as addicting and gripping as the previous novels Yet, the novel was very adventurous, but I personally wasn t a big fan of the ending.

    18. i read this a WHILE ago but i just remembered it and this series is such a keeper i love love love the characters and the plot great ending to a trilogy fun fact i read this series in like 2013 and then the two books got republished and i ve been waiting since for this one to come out

    19. Man, this was such an amazing book, different again from the other two, and yeah, we finally find out what Aidan did That ending, oh Really great, and I can t wait to read by Elisa Ludwig

    20. You know when your not in the mood and you can t get into the book that s me right now Didn t even get passed the fort page.
