Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson

Truly Devious (Truly Devious, #1)

4 stars

I have finally gotten to this book! So many people were raving about it and I just had to know why.

I really enjoyed the setting. I don’t know why but I love boarding school type books. I really was skeptical about how Stevie was going to make connections to a cold case. Turns out there’s some new things happening. The thing is, I have so many more questions than answers.

I really liked Stevie. I loved her mind and the way she was able to see people and situations. I love Sherlock and she really reminded me of him, in the detective skills. I also like how she brought anxiety to light. This is a trend that I can get behind. Everyone has anxiety on some scale but a lot of people don’t think it’s a “real” thing. It most certainly is!

I loved how this wasn’t revolving around romance. There is a small romance that forms with Stevie and a class mate. I am kinda laughing so hard at that ending though… Go figure! I’m not really sure how I feel about this book not tying up any loose ends. I didn’t realize this was a mystery that wouldn’t be tied up for several books. I just figured it was a series of different mysteries. I’m not a huge fan of waiting a year for any answers! I feel like it was more of an open ending instead of a big cliffhanger.

I loved Nate. Oh my gosh.. he’s someone who I totally didn’t think would make a big impact. I love when he becomes a real friend to Stevie and helps her. Ahh! I just really can’t wait to learn more about him.

Overall, this was a fun and quick read. I can’t wait to read the next book but I might wait until the series is finished.

  1. Great article!

    I’ve heard about this book. Sounds like an interesting read. I had no idea there would be more books and this was going to be a series. Good to know, I might wait now till more of the books come out.

    Currently reading To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. Just started reading it and so far it’s really good!

      • Okay, I’ll definitely wait, I have no patience when it comes to reading a series! I’ll accidentally buy one book at the store, and then realize it’s a series, and then run back to the store to buy the next one and then buy all the rest on amazon! Seriously the worst. I’ve been trying to get through my books that aren’t series at the moment, so I can get my TBR pile much much smaller!
