10 Mystery Books To Read To Help You Get Over The 'Pretty Little Liars' Finale


All the juicy drama of Rosewood is officially gone, so where can Pretty Little Liars fans turn to for their edge-of-your-seat murder mysteries now? It's time to crack open a book or two... or 10.

PLL fans know the hit show started out as a book series, and since then, murder mystery novels have grown into one of the most popular book genres on the shelves, many of which find themselves adapted into their own TV shows or movies.


So instead of spending all your time trying to make sense of that strange A.D. reveal or rewatching your favorite old episodes of Pretty Little Liars in its pre-time jump glory days, I'd like to recommend you jump into a whole new delicious, page-turning whodunnit.

And if your curious where to begin, digital library Scribd is here for you! The site put together a list of its 10 most-read thrillers and murder mysteries to keep you gasping and theorizing for months to come.
