    They say Third time is a charm and when I agree because third book of the series is the BEST WRITTEN, RIVETING, EXCITING, ENTERTAINING, A GREAT TRIBUTE TO AGATHA CHRISTIE BOOKS The weakest thing about Truly Devious series is lack of adorable, likable characters but you slowly get used to their quirkiness, strange antics and their asocial manners Stevie is adorably weird, introvert, die hard fan of crime thriller podcasts, cold cases from the past I m not talking about younger version of my They say Third time is a charm and when I agree because third book of the series is the BEST WRITTEN, RIVETING, EXCITING, ENTERTAINING, A GREAT TRIBUTE TO AGATHA CHRISTIE BOOKS The weakest thing about Truly Devious series is lack of adorable, likable characters but you slowly get used to their quirkiness, strange antics and their asocial manners Stevie is adorably weird, introvert, die hard fan of crime thriller podcasts, cold cases from the past I m not talking about younger version of myself This is Stevie and Alice Ellingham s kidnapping case is her big obsession that slowly gnaws at her Yes she cannot take a shower, wearing same clothes every day I also loved Nate from the beginning who is also socially disturbed, geek but he wrote a book and made so much money, of course he is my favorite And asshole David gets disappeared at the nearly end of the second novel He already earned too many punching me against the face and keep on doing for days points from me And yes, at this new book, he was still pretentious douchebag and treating Stevie so mean and unfair But he gets jealous, spying on Hunter and Stevie like a hawk and follow Stevie at everywhere I wanted to scream at his face Make a decision Do you hate or like her The strongest thing about the book The mystery behind Alice s kidnapping and how it reflects the future of Ellingham Academy and the weird murder cases yes, there are three murders now At the second book Stevie solved the mystery and she thought she found whodunit but guess what there are so many secret layers and missing pieces of the puzzle As we resume our reading the results were so surprising and unforeseen So now there is snow storm, the school is closed, everybody will be sent to their homes Of course Stevie doesn t want to go because leaving Ellingham Academy means she will return back her miserable life and her terrible anxiety attacks Then a miracle happens, asshole David comes back with stolen tablets from his father s office to find some dirt against his campaign and he needs help of his friends let s say classmates because I m not sure this cocky boy carries any kind of friendly genes and he presents it like a weekend mountain hideout Vi Janelle s girlfriend intrigued because Vi doesn t want douchebag David s evil douchebag father to become their president Best friend Nate stays because of Stevie Hunter has nowhere to go and Janelle reluctantly stays because of girlfriend So yes, they hid in the school to solve the mystery They cannot go anywhere and there is a murderer still out there Oh actually, he or she is actually in the academy with them and guess what.Nooooo, you re gonna read and learn what happens next.I had entertaining time This book was real unputdownable, mysterious, captivating and the better ending of the trilogy And you know what I think I d love to readadventures of Stevie Finally I learned to love her and her quirky lovely friends I gave first book 3 starsSecond book was much better 4 starsThird book 4.25 yes asshole David ate 0.75 points And poor Stevie has real crush on him Overall Two mysteries from past and present intertwined impeccably Fast pacing, enjoyable, Hercule Poirot ish, riveting YA adult mystery I highly recommend it to genre fans.bloginstagramfacebooktwitter

    Here s the thing This is not a good mystery.A good mystery, a truly remarkable one, has not only a question at its core that fascinates and eludes the reader This series certainly has that, but it s not the only thing that really makes a mystery book worth writing home about.The really fun thing, the thing that makes the best works of this genre worth reading, is the solution.The solution should be the peak of the story, not the letdown It should be an ohmygod moment, a muttered holy sh t a Here s the thing This is not a good mystery.A good mystery, a truly remarkable one, has not only a question at its core that fascinates and eludes the reader This series certainly has that, but it s not the only thing that really makes a mystery book worth writing home about.The really fun thing, the thing that makes the best works of this genre worth reading, is the solution.The solution should be the peak of the story, not the letdown It should be an ohmygod moment, a muttered holy sh t as you frantically turn pages.This wasnot that.Not even close The mysteries themselves werefun,interesting, andimpressive than the answers By a mile.I stayed up until 3 am reading this, and then I was like that s it No It can t be Maybe there s a secret riddle in here where I getpages Maybe this is a red herring, and I, the reader, am supposed to solve it Eureka That s it All I have to do is reread all three books, make a cereal box model of the school like Gansey, never sleep again, start wearing my dirty hair tied in baby socks to get in the heads of the characters And so on.The real sleepless night this caused was how much time I feel I wasted on this series ALL I WANTED WAS ANSWERS And I got thembut at what cost Do I have to dedicate my life to writing fanfiction for this series now, and then break down my brain until I forget this book entirely and convince myself that what I wrote is the real thing Is that the only way I ll ever find joy Possibly.On top of all that, I do not care for this David character whatsoever You know that part in the last book where he pays someone to beat him up In my fanfiction version of this series, I m going to be the one paying those random, like, skateboarders he encounters or whatever to kick him in the shins And I m going to be off to the side yelling, THIS IS FOR ALL THAT EMOTIONAL ABUSE THAT WAS JUST EXCUSED, FOR SOME REASON, YOU NAKED MOLE RAT Apparently I havepent up anger about this book than I realized.In fact, outside of this nice little setting made up of learning and riddles and rich people and sweaters and maple flavored things, I m having trouble thinking of much I liked about this at all.Bummer.Bottom line I AM DISAPPOINTED if i die tonight, it s for one of the following reasons 1 one of the murderers in this book got to me somehow crossed the bounds of fiction 2 i passed away from thirst, because i finished my water while reading this but was too scared to get out of bed and getsee real murderers point, above review to come 3 stars IT S HAPPENING.I HAVE THIS BOOK IN MY HANDS, I AM ABOUT TO OPEN IT, IT IS HAPPENING AAAAAAAH 2020

    At the end of The Vanishing Stair it says this book will apparently be called The Hand on the Wall Whatever the name is, I m bitter that I have to wait till next year to read it after yet another cliffhanger The life of a reader is not a fair one.

    Here s my 5 parts of the trilogy The 2nd half of the 1st book The whole of the 2nd book minus David, of course The first half of the 3rd bookWell, it s worth binge reading And it s so interesting and fast paced that you won t take much time reading each book don t get fooled by the number of pages.Why the last one is not a perfect 5 read for me I still couldn t stand David and Stevie together The romance was so out of place And I simply couldn t understand why the author tried to fo Here s my 5 parts of the trilogy The 2nd half of the 1st book The whole of the 2nd book minus David, of course The first half of the 3rd bookWell, it s worth binge reading And it s so interesting and fast paced that you won t take much time reading each book don t get fooled by the number of pages.Why the last one is not a perfect 5 read for me I still couldn t stand David and Stevie together The romance was so out of place And I simply couldn t understand why the author tried to force some 5 or 6 chapters in the later half unnecessarily dragging the plot The mystery is not much of a brainer It feels like it s been there all along It failed to blow my mind and hair away But somehow it s okay It s not a big issue when the characters are this lively, the plot is built thick with details and the ending always satisfying with a sense of closure Basically, I would have loved itif the romance was between Nate and ok, I won t talk about this Better write a fanfic or something I just couldn t get enough of Albert Ellington of the 1930s and Nate of the 2010s One made me lose my mind and the other made me pee laugh.I wish there wereparts of Nate In the dragging chapters and the few important chapters where almost every other character was there, Nate was forgotten It was just not fair My review writing skills have gone nil I can sense it but a reader has to say what she has to say as she got unnecessarily attached to a few characters Stevie, the main character the true crime fanatic the compulsive reader the one with anxiety the one who made the trilogy possible I liked her for her undying commitment till the end Somehow I don t feel anything for her Am I a robot No It s just that I liked the 4 5 villains in the story muchThey appearedreal and human to me The side characters were amazing It s just that the two main characters lacked the X factor for me I liked the dirty secrets of the high society of the past as well as the present happening in the books muchthan the actual murder mysteries Overall, it s a very well developed plot.The humour parts are well done Every scene with Nate is worth it Another most favourite character has been Janelle She s smart, realistic, geeky, outspoken and openly in a GL relationship with Vi She is just dynamic.I appreciate the moments of our two main characters making stupid decisions together in the last book I feel like Stevie loses her sense of intuition decision making whenever she is with David I even thought of rating this book a three star because of a few chapters having them which seemed quite forced and unnecessary But the villains saved the day Omg What a ride For me, the second book s still the BEST
