The Screaming Staircase (Lockwood & Co., #1) by Jonathan Stroud

The Screaming Staircase4

TJ Burns — December 7, 2017

Wheeeeeeeee-uuuuuuuuuh! Boom-chuckaluckla-boom! That was an exciting ride! Yeee-ha!

The humorous, chuckle-out-loud interaction and dynamics between the three main characters is refreshing, entertaining, and endearing — all at once!

I guessed the who-dunnit shortly before Lockwood and long before he revealeThe Screaming Staircase1d it to Lucy and George, but that didn’t distract from the story’s suspense in the least. I simply applauded my brilliance and chalked it off to a great-minds-think-alike kind of a thing. Besides there were more than enough – correct that – loads and loads of surprises to keep me oThe Screaming Staircase2n the edge of my seat and cause me to jump up and scream periodically!

Within minutes of finishing The Screaming Staircase, I bought and started reading The Whispering Skull, the second book in the series. I haven’t gotten this excited about a series since Harry Potter! Yipee!

I received a copy of this book from Disney-Hyperion via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
