9/10 I really do like this series. All the pieces fit. I‘m very excited for the next book.
Ugh these *books*!!! The first was good and hard to stop thinking about… but this second was fantastic. David is one of my favorite fictional characters right now (currently, I know the series is still going)…. And I‘m so glad I already ordered 3 and 4, which are set to arrive *tomorrow* because I can‘t wait.
@Soubhiville I think you sent me Truly Devious, yes? Thank you!! Have you read the whole series? Will it go past 4???

I love reading these books! Read the second installment in the Truly Devious series a couple of weeks ago. I can't wait to get my hands on the third novel. #mysteryfic #maureenjohnson #greatread #readKY #trulydevious #nature #summer
Book 2 in the Truly Devious series continued to be enjoyable. Not a whole lot happens though, given the length of the book. I‘m not sure why three books are necessary? A few reveals are made and the story moves along. One complaint. I dislike the fact that Stevie has issues with David over circumstances that are completely out of his control. Not only is she very dramatic about it, but it‘s just unfair. Otherwise, I like Stevie and her journey.
Eeeee! Another cliffhanger (as expected with book 2 of a trilogy) but sooooo good! I am so invested in this series and I need to borrow the 3rd book immediately!
Finishing this book also got me my first #bookspinbingo for January!
This is soooo good. Things are happening not fast enough, and really fast. Love it!!
I figured the kidnapper, and I thought okay I just needed to know the motives. And yet, it got really out of control and kind of unexpected. Such an ending!! And by the way, I think I knew who Alice was, I guess I have to read the third book to confirm my suspicion.
I usually hate the middle book of a trilogy, and while this was a little slow to get going, it ended with a bang! I‘m so glad the next book is already waiting for me at the library. #bookspinbingo #bookspin #BINGO
Ooooo, this was so good! The characters are amazing (kudos for getting what it‘s like to live with anxiety spot on), the mystery is multi-layered and so engaging, and it takes place in an amazing boarding school for genius kids. (And there are secret tunnels and riddles!)
I just finished this book! Chapter 15 of 25 is where I got to the “I can‘t stop reading, I have to find out what happens!” It doesn‘t matter if this is a YA series, if you like mysteries and crime novels, you will like this. There are several paths to take, several matters to solve, and then they give you one and create another. Really, really good. On to book 3. I hope the ending doesn‘t disappoint.
April #TripleSpin book but read on May.Late but completed!?☺️ This is a sequel so not much to comment. I enjoyed it and the author integrates parts of the first book so it is not difficult to follow the story. Again, I will like to read the last book to see how will be the conclusion of this story.

In a good follow-up to Truly Devious, The Vanishing Stair seems to solve some of the mysteries set forward in the first book, though it ends on a new mystery that suggests there is more to the story. I‘m really enjoying this series and look forward to the next book, though I have a fairly long wait based on my library hold. This is YA, but I feel anyone who enjoys mystery is likely to like this series.
Edie so approves of beer and ebooks and cuddles and humans always at home. #catsoflitsy
Late to this series but loving it so much!
Randomly: I‘ve found that quarantine slow rhythms are honestly kinda my jam, much as I miss restaurants and bars and pedicures and libraries and live yoga class... Hate to say I think still working helps a little too. How is everyone else holding up?
This the #TripleSpin book during the month of April. But I couldn't read it😟I will read it at the beginning of May because...because...I want to read it and this is an extraordinary moment to read this sequel! 🤗 @TheAromaofBooks
“So much of anxiety was anxiety about having anxiety. Would it come tonight? Would it suddenly wrap its fingers around her neck and warp the world, now, at the moment when she should be happiest? Would the universe crunch itself into a ball and ping itself right between her eyes?”
For a murder mystery series, the periodic examination of anxiety disorders are spot on, and all the more timely, what with :gestures at the world:.
I enjoyed the mystery and I enjoyed the twist at the end and how she keeps bringing up more questions as she provides answers to others. But, I feel like there was a whole lot of book with a whole lot of nothing happening. And maybe there are things that will be revealed in book 3 that will make that relevant. There was just something that was okay about this one and not as great as the first.
Got a bit carried away today. Mostly secondhand though
