Since Truly Devious was released recently, we can only hope that the fourth Shades of London will be the other book she's releasing this year. (less)

imagine a figure, hands stuffed in their pockets, back hunched. they are kicking at the ground, looking sullen.

because there's been no info on this. and i've forgotten basically everything about the other books (except my otp, of course) and it has made me upset.
i stiiiiiill need this and for my otp to be endgame.
i mean

without complications, yknow?
2018? Some people will have to wait 3 years for this book.

Okay now we make a circle to get the publishers to release some info. Maureen, I was wrong to doubt you!

It’s weird that the third Truly Devious book has a release date??? Maureen...pls... I will take anything.

Edit 3/19/19

Did....did Maureen just forget this series or like...?

Update 1/25/20
Asked her about book 4 again. Pretty much got the same answer as last time. It’s there and it’s coming, just not right now and doesn’t sound like the immediate future. This time when she talked about it though she sounded like she may still be working on it? I guess we will remain confused and [im]patient as before. She did say she was aware fans were waiting both patiently and impatiently.

Update 1/22/20
I am going to see Maureen on Saturday. Gonna ask her about the book again 😏

Feb 17, 2018 marked it as wishlist
What is going on, Maureen Johnson????? I have been waiting for this book foreverrrrrrrrr and its coming out this year and I don’t even know the title????? Please throw me the littlest bone! I READ THE THIRD BOOK THREE YEARS AGO HELP ME

Update: I have now read the third book four years ago. Still no new news. 👩🏻‍🦳

Update again: this did not get published in 2018. This publish date is a LIE.

It's 2018 now and I get the feeling we'll be waiting another year.
I'll wait as long as it takes to get the next instalment of my favourite series but PLEASE know I'd still love to read it!!!
...of course I will be reading Truly Devious in the meantime

edit 26/12/18: There's still 5 days left of 2018 I still have hope 😂😂

Yes I'd just like to add to the general "What the hell happened to this book?" questions that are "reviews" here. So, what the hell happened to this book? It's been years. YEARS. YEARRRRSSSS. I've graduated high school and college, gotten married, and had a baby waiting for this book. 2020 is rough enough. Can we get a finale for this series already? ...more

I think I’ve officially given up hope on this story being wrapped up. Which breaks my damn heart because I love the first three so much but I doubt I’ll ever be able to even read them again knowing there is no actual ending. It’s been five years since the last book was released. God, I hate that I’ve held out hope for so long for absolutely no reason.

Dear Maureen,


You can’t just leave us with the bad guys driving off into the sunset. It’s just not very nice.

Between waiting on you for this and for the next Truly Devious and waiting on your bestie, Libba, for the next Diviners, I feel like I’m in the second circle of hell, blown about in a vicious tornado WITH NO RESPITE.

Ugh. Not fair.

i would sell my soul for this book

update - it's 2019 and i still haven't heard anything about this. the publishing date is obviously a lie, 'cuz it ain't 2018 no more. i'm mad as heck.

- edit - i'm thinking it might be time to give up hope 7/17/20

Just howling into the void, here in August 2020, about a book I am pretty sure won’t happen.

It’s funny, I reconciled myself years and years ago to A Song of Ice and Fire never being finished by the original author but I still have a tiny flame of hope this will appear somehow somewhere, maybe self-published, and we will rejoice.

I've been waiting for the book for years, and I've like forgotten everything from book three except that I ship Rory and Stephen. I seriously want to know what happens next, but something tells me that I'm not going to find out anytime soon. ...more

I read The Shadow Cabinet the day I graduated high school and here I am, in my final semester of graduate school, still pining for the next one. I refuse to harass Maureen on social media because OBVIOUSLY SHE IS AWARE OF THIS ISSUE, but man, I really want to read this book.

(This is inspired by this morning's hit on my "Shades of London" Google alert, which to this day is the only Google alert I've ever set up).
It comes out in 2018. TWO THOUSAND AND EIGHTEEN!!
Why oh why does the universe hate me so much...

Hey, in an E-Mail i asked Maureen Johnson, if there will be a forth shades of london book. Yesterday I got the answer that the forth book will be released, but she doesn't know when.
Never give up hope.

Hello to those who are here in 2020 also trying to be as patient as I am for the 4th book! I've kept up with this series since I was 13 and now I am 20 haha I was years younger than Rory and everyone and now I'm aging as I await the final book. From what I was told by a source that's probably not reliable, Maureen has the 4th book finished and since the entirety of Truly Devious is basically completed she is in the works of publishing the last book in the Shades of London series. It makes sense ...more
