Seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord's daughter, with a life of wealth and privilege stretched out before her. But between the social teas and silk dress fittings, she leads a forbidden secret life.

Against her stern father's wishes and society's expectations, Audrey often slips away to her uncle's laboratory to study the gruesome practice of forensic medicine. When her work on a string of savagely killed corpses drags Audrey into the investigation of a serial murderer, her search for answers brings her close to her own sheltered world.

Holy crap, this book is REALLY good. Okay, confession time: I totally did not know who Jack the Ripper was before I even read this book. So stupid me thought that Jack was some hot guy in the book. Yeah, I know, you can stop laughing now. But anyway, then I walked past the Philosophy section at work (I work at Kinokuniya bookstore btw) and saw some thick book called “JACK THE RIPPER” and that’s when I realised that Jack the Ripper is someone that this book is based off. Hence I actually went to Google about it before reading this book and viola, I was super impressed and wanted to see how the author would actually fit this crazed murderer in her book.

So actually I was more excited to read the book after learning who Jack the Ripper is. The main character, Audrey Rose, was definitely one of the coolest character that has ever been written about. Amidst all the other girls in their gowns and stitching stuffffs, Audrey Rose is the one girl interested in dissecting dead bodies, and even though I don’t really like dead bodies, I still find like this book and this character.

The whole story plot was pretty fast, and the murder started way before we even realised that it was a murder, which was a good thing? I mean I wanted the book to be unexpected, instead of following the normal cliche way of introducing the story plot, this book started out of nowhere yknow what I mean? HAHAHA okay I don’t know what I’m talking about but this book is reaaally good. There’s romance too but the romance is just like the icing on the cake for this book.

But yeah, holy crap this book is gooood. And if y’all don’t believe me, there are other raving reviews about this book. So read it!

Firstly, this book is based off a video game, so you probably should not expect much in terms of writing, because that’s what I did, and I was sorely disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, I loooove the story plot, it was really interesting, bringing us back to Italy 1472. But that writing though. I mean, damn, I’ve seen better writings in high school. But let’s talk about the good parts of it first. I really do like the story plot, even though it was a little bit too fast for me. This book is REALLY fast paced. Like it definitely jumps from […]

Review: Outrun the Moon by Stacey Lee

Outrun the Moon kinda took me by surprise because I wasn’t expecting myself to like it so much. Truth be told, I never really was interested in this book because it was set in 1906, and usually, most of the books that I’ve read, the authors tend to mess up those years with 2016 slangs and that made them cringe-worthy. BUT this book was amazing, truly amazing. I fell in love with Mercy at first read, because she was everything I wanted to be if I was born in the 1800s when women were looked down upon. She was strong-willed, […]

Here’s the thing: Historical fictions aren’t my thing. I rarely read anything that has got to do with historical fiction. But I came across this book, and I got intrigued by the title. Nora and Kettle. What kind of guy has Kettle as his name? Though, I do have to admit that I kinda skimmed the summary, and hence, all I know was that this book was set after World War 2, and that Nora and Kettle will meet. The introduction did not prepare me for what was coming. I was sucker-punched. I just stared at my Kindle the moment I finish reading that […]

Because I’m way too excited to be in the Tsar’s Guard Parade, I shall spice up my review a little bit and add in reasons as to why you should read this book, DEFINITELY. Actually, it’s pretty much a MUST to read this book. NUMBER #1 FANTASY. ENCHANTERS. MAGIC. Must you really ask? Magic trumps everything, and in this case, this book is so full of magic, that I was enthralled throughout the whole book. I knew that this book had magic, but I thought it would be battles and bloodthirsty, the type of magic that happened during the last Battle of […]
