Review: ‘Truly Devious’

“Look! A riddle! Time for fun! Should we use a rope or gun?”

Are you looking for a murder mystery, YA style, set at a boarding school in the mountains of Vermont set in both present time and throwbacks to an unsolved murder from the 1930’s? Then I have found just the book for you! Truly, Devious.

Top 10 of 2017 ~ Taylor’s Picks

Hey all!

Time for my 2017 in books: I read 54, 726 pages spread across 140 books. I was so strong with my reading during the summer, almost reading a book per day, so that’s why it’s so high!
