    This one hit the spot in all the right ways. The first book felt a little unfinished for me, but this one fleshed out the mysteries, gave us answers, and set up the mysteries for the next book. All in all a really great read. ...

    Man. Maureen Johnson is master of ending a book in a way that makes the reader throw it across the room, and demand: I WILL HAVE MY SEQUEL NOW! Cannot wait for the next Truly Devious novel. And, you may recall my grumbling about punctuation in the first book "Truly, Devious"...

    **This review now posted on my blog** Dear readers, may I present you a desperate attempt of a bad poet with a shitty rhyme at expressing her WTF feelings aimed at The Vanishing Stair aka The Torture Device aka one more year of desolation aka nine circles of hell aka-- You get the p...

    3.5 stars. The second book in this historical/contemporary, mystery/thriller reinforced my opinion that this is really one big book that has been split into three, rather than three separate books in a series. They don?t work that well independently. What was great about this i...

    you know that feeling when you misremember how you felt about a book, potentially romanticising it, because you swear the story was just that good?? i think i did that with ?truly devious? because i went into this expecting it to be a five star read. and maybe thats my fault. i sho...

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. THIS IS AS GOOD AS YOU ARE HOPING. Stevie is still great, Ellingham Academy is still the best school ever, murder is still happening, but NOW IT IS PROPERLY FALL so I want to live in this book EVEN MORE than the first one. (Oh, but the mystery, you ask - sure! The my...

    "(...)Nothing compares to a good book. A book gives you everything, it gives you a window to others soul, other worlds. The world is a door, books are the key." 5-star reading I can't believe that I have to wait another year for the next book!!!! I really loved this one, we...

    4 1/2 stars This was exactly what I needed at exactly the right time. It basically had everything I wanted from a sequel and, to me, is the perfect second installment in this series. The characters felt more fleshed out and charming, the dialogues felt incredibly realistic and well-...

    I don't even know. It feels, to me, like this book is largely unnecessary. So many bloated trilogies could easily be better if condensed to two books, so every moment is vital instead of making a thriller this... boring? I don't know that boring is the word. Idk that there is a word. I...

    OH MY GOD I CANNOT BELIEVE SHE REALLY JUST LEFT OFF LIKE THAT. Okay so, besides being 10 times more invested in this series now that I was before, this book was a deserving follow-up to Truly Devious, who a lot of people, I found, were pretty unimpressed by, but that I thought was a ...
