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!

Signs of You completely took me by surprise. It was raw, surreal and wow, magic. Just magic. I’m not sure if this book is under fantasy genre, but for some reason, I don’t think it fits in that genre. It seemed too real to be categorized as just fantasy. Sidenote: This book is not under fantasy, I just checked. This book was amazing and beautiful, and it lets us look at grief in a completely different way. Even though I did not bawled my eyes out, I felt like this book just ripped my heart out open. I have a feeling […]

This was one hella unexpected book because I never thought I would ever love it. AT ALL. But I did, good God I DIDDDDDD. I mean, the story line sounded so damn good, but the moment I started it, I was like woah, the writing is quite weird. It reminded me of the cowboy kind of writing? No? Backyard? No? Wtf am I saying. HMMM, I’m trying to figure out here, HAHAHA I’m sorry. But it sounds like those people with those funny accents, hicky?! SHOOT I’m sorry, I’m just throwing out random stuffs but HAHAH if you know, please tell me! […]

This book legit has no chill. It went from peaceful to fucking mindblowing within seconds. I mean, it was completely unexpected, but I definitely love it. Sanctuary Bay was no ordinary school, and this book was no ordinary elite-school book. I actually thought that this would be a book about high school dramas, so when every little dark secrets about the school was uncovered, I was just there like: The blurb of this book stated that “this “school” is something much more sinister”, and I laughed out loud, because I can tell you that SINISTER is a freaking understatement. This book is […]

This book is so so so good that it actually scares me, till I never want to read it again. I’m scarred for life. I’m never trusting anyone anymore. Like, why you gotta do this to meeeee. HAHAHA. But anyway, WOAH. In all honesty, this book went from 0 to 100 pretty damn quickly. No chill, bruh. I have only read one other book that has a similar gut punch realization as this book, and that’s Black Iris by Leah Reader (see my review). So, if you’ve read that book, then you have GOT to read this book too. This book will blow your fucking mind out and you’ll just […]
