Review: Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

what was your reaction after reading the book?

i was pretty satisfied with what i got from this book.

“There’s nothing better than a little danger dashed with some romance.”

this quote pretty much summarizes what I feel about this book. it has a little bit of everything – the thrill of chasing the bad guy, the mystery of knowing who that person is, then sprinkle that with a little bit of romance. just exactly how i like it.

while i liked this book, it is not perfect. it does have its misses but i thoroughly enjoyed it nonetheless.

my bulleted thoughts on stalking jack the ripper:

Many thanks to Stephen from Stephen Writes for tagging me with something. I like being tagged, so this is very much appreciated. *heart eyes inserted here* A little bit about Stephen, I mean we don’t talk much but I do love the type of posts he does, especially the discussion posts. He does some wicked book reviews as well – let me not forget to mention how awesome he reviews them.

REVIEW: You by Caroline Kepnes

 

“You are a woman and I am a man and we belong in the dark together.”

REACTION AFTER READING THE BOOK

I am still in shock at how scary and wonderful this book is.

I am, seriously, still dumbfounded by how much I enjoyed reading this. I don’t know what that says about me, but I was fascinated with how Joe’s mind work.

THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLY: Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

“Back then, I had an oversize sense of self-importance and absolutely no self-worth. It didn’t matter how gorgeous I was or how great my voice was or what magazine I was on the cover of. I mean, there were a lot of teenage girls that wanted to group up and be me in the late seventies. I was keenly aware of that. But the only reason people thought I had everything is because I had all the things you can see.

I had none of the things you can’t.”
– Daisy

Everyone was talking about Daisy Jones & the Six last year. However, because I try to stay away from hyped books as much as possible, I didn’t read this book until early this year – It was the best decision ever.

I am in love with Daisy Jones & the Six. I completely agree with all the hyped stuff everyone has been saying about this book because it was amazing. Nothing short of amazing.

LET ME TELL YOU A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE STORY:

THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE UGLY: All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven

DISCLAIMER: I have read this book back in 2016 and posted this review on Goodreads but my thoughts about this still has not changed. A lot of my Goodreads friends have loved this book; I was one of the few that did not love this. All The Bright places will be getting a movie starring Ellie Fanning, and while I believe she’ll do a great job of being Violet, I’m not sure if it’s something I’ll be watching if the story is much like the books.

DISCLAIMER 2: Don’t be fooled by that title. This book does not have a happy ending. Sorry to spoil things for you. But I just needed to say it. It’s one of the things I didn’t like the book.

BOOKS I MUST READ IN 2020

For someone who claims and swears by her love of books, I have not been very good at showing it, especially last year. I think I read such a few books I can’t even remember what they were. Lol.

Anyways, I promised myself I will be reading books this year. And I also promise myself I will be reading the unread books that have been waiting for me on my shelf. I have quite a few that I would have loved to read last year, but didn’t.

Here are some of the ones I am promising to read before the end of this year (hopefully).

verity book review colleen hoover

 

Lowen Ashleigh is a struggling writer on the brink of financial ruin when she accepts the job offer of a lifetime. Jeremy Crawford, husband of bestselling author Verity Crawford, has hired Lowen to complete the remaining books in a successful series his injured wife is unable to finish.

Lowen arrives at the Crawford home, ready to sort through years of Verity’s notes and outlines, hoping to find enough material to get her started. What Lowen doesn’t expect to uncover in the chaotic office is an unfinished autobiography Verity never intended for anyone to read. Page after page of bone-chilling admissions, including Verity’s recollection of what really happened the day her daughter died.

Lowen decides to keep the manuscript hidden from Jeremy, knowing its contents would devastate the already grieving father. But as Lowen’s feelings for Jeremy begin to intensify, she recognizes all the ways she could benefit if he were to read his wife’s words. After all, no matter how devoted Jeremy is to his injured wife, a truth this horrifying would make it impossible for him to continue to love her.

A standalone romantic thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover.
