Escaping from Houdini Reviews
this....ain't it sis
This series is a bit like those cosy murder mysteries, and listening to them on audio is just a whole lot of fun. Unfortunately, I think this instalment may be my least favourite. It wasn't bad but I felt myself getting distracted while I was listening, and it just didn't hold the same charm as books 1 and 2. I sincerely hope it was just me this time as I'm definitely planning on listening to the fourth (and final) book.
Look at that cover, it's so pretty!! I ...more
I give up.
I started reading the hardback book in early October and stopped on page 120. I was so bored I couldn’t get myself to turn the page. I requested the audiobook via Overdrive from my library thinking (and hoping) that the audiobook would be better. My request just arrived last night. I started over and got about midpoint when I finally gave up, because I'm still bored and I just don’t care. The first two books were three-star reads, so I’m not heartbroken about this, just annoyed. I'm g ...more
internet: cressworth wedding 2019!
me: they've known each other 4 months, AR just turned 17, Papa Wadsworth hasn't approved of them even dating yet, they've liked each other for two months, they've kissed 3 or 4 times, Thomas screwed up twice 2-3 weeks ago in HPD, but if you're suuuuure... #SJTR4 #murderbynumbers #happyfriday!

the full spoiler-free review is up on my blog!
Love was a tricky, complicated thing - so morally gray. Both grand and terrible things were often done in its honor. But could anything truly be done out of love if it had the potential to hurt the one at its heart? I wavered.
I will try and keep it short because I have already said everything in my blog post but: this book was so enjoyable, magical and perfectly fitting for this time of the year! 🌟🎭 I fell in love with the Moonlight Carnival, the p ...more
I started reading Escaping from Houdini on 7/8/18 and finished it on 7/19/18. This book is an excellent read! I find the romance between Thomas and Audrey Rose intoxicating because of their limited time, privacy, and secrecy. I like the sharp tongues exchanges between Audrey and Mephistopheles. I like all the fancy clothes Audrey Rose wears: silks and velvets as well as the decorations to the live shows. I like the mystery to Mephistopheles’ background because he’s always wearing a mask. I like ...more

#3: Escaping From Houdini ★★★★★
Let me tell you guys, I have been dying to post this review! It’s been a few months since I read this one, but the publisher did request that I wait to post my thoughts until close to the book’s release, and naturally, I obliged. Now that I can finally gush freely with you all, I have to tell you that I adore this series. It is such a fun roller coaster of emotions and suspense, and I honestly think ...more
So, in the end I think I decided to rate this a 4.5 stars. I think this is the highest I've rated a book in this series so far. Actually, looking back I think I did rate book two 4.5 stars, but I rated down.
This will possibly contain minor spoilers for books 1 and 2. They will not be tagged. Any spoilers for this book will be tagged.
Firstly, I need to say that the mystery in this one was a lot more well done than in the two previous books. I have stated in the past that I knew who the killer was ...more
