I hope you’re all having a wonderful day!
I’ve read yet another hyped YA book. if you’ve been following me for a time now you’d know that I’ve been meaning to read this book for a while now. well, I wasn’t disappointed by it, nor was I that impressed.
name: stalking jack the ripper-1
author: Kerri Maniscalco
genre: YA historical fiction
publishing date: september 20th 2016
publisher: Jimmy Patterson
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.
like I said I wasn’t that blown away by this book, nor was I disappointed. I enjoyed it but there were times when it didn’t pull my attention. plus, I predicted the ending ( it wasn’t that hard really ).
“Fear is a hungry beast. The more you feed it, the more it grows.”
the writing was amazing. I absolutely loved it and enjoyed it. it made me everything fly smoothly, and it helped with the creation of the world.
I love historical London so reading a book based on it was great. and Kerri made it even more wonderful.
the plot was okay. I mean the premise sounds really intriguing and thrilling. I was excited to read a book about a serial killer set in 19th century London. but like I said there were times when the plot didn’t pull me in as I hoped and the end was predictable. I hoped for more since I’m reading an investigation-thriller type of book.
“I was determined to be both pretty and fierce, as Mother had said I could be. Just because I was interested in a man’s job didn’t mean I had to give up being girly. Who defined those roles anyhow?”
the characters were good. I definitely did like the protagonist. she was a strong heroine that I wished to see more like her in YA. the other characters I can’t really identify my feelings toward them. I didn’t hate them nor did I love them. they had depth and I wanted to read the other books to hopefully see more of them.
