Stalking Jack The Ripper By Kerri Maniscalco Book Review

Hello all,

So am going to go into as much detail as I can in this review and I hope you will bear with me while I try this new style.

Stalking Jack The Ripper By Kerri Maniscalco

Blurb: 

A #1 New York Times Bestseller!

Presented by James Patterson's new children's imprint, this deliciously creepy horror novel has a storyline inspired by the Ripper murders and an unexpected, blood-chilling conclusion...

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.

The story's shocking twists and turns, augmented with real, sinister period photos, will make this dazzling, #1 New York Times bestselling debut from author Kerri Maniscalco impossible to forget.


Review

Star Rating: 4/5

What I Expected: A chill spine-tingling plot that leaves me checking the doors, windows and making sure that Ian's not to far away from me when I'm reading it. I wasn't expecting romance or any real humour to it. I was expecting dark, gothic feel that is normally associated with Jack The Ripper. 

Review: I wasn't expecting the pictures and it added to the creepy elements of the book. It didn't helps that the book picked up from its slow start and left me breathless. I liked the interaction that was between Cresswell and Aubrey. I really get into the way that Aubrey is a passionate leading character. Its touching how she will not drop the case despite the odds stacking against her. I think there is a great tale of promise in the story.

Dark Guardian- Christine Feehan Review

Hello Readers,

I have taken time out of my very busy schedule to tell you the details about this great new book "Dark Guardian" by Christine Feehan. You're going to find that have been going over the many different elements and details that are presented in this great erotica paranormal book.

Blurb: 

They were masters of the darkness, searching through eternity for a mistress of the light....

He ran with the wolves...materialized from the mists...hijacked the very heavens to his whims.

He was the dark guardian of his people. So how, after centuries of a bleak, soulless existence had he, Lucian Daratrazanoff, suddenly come to crave petite, curvy, colorful lady cop Jaxon Montgomery, who foolishly made it her life's work to protect others from harm?

Fiercely daring, Jaxx would sacrifice anything to shield others-- particularly since a deadly menace dogged her every footstep, threatening all who got close to her. And strangely seductive, piercingly erotic Lucian was no exception. Lucian was powerfully, perilously mesmerizing--oddly gentle yet clearly a born predator. He had vowed to possess her, to guard her for all time. Yet with his every thirsty kiss, was he drawing Jaxon more deeply into danger . . . and his dark, mysterious desires?

Review:

4/5 Stars.

What I expected: Going in I knew this might be rough at times but it would all work out. I was excited that this one chooses to look a female police officer rather than someone who might be weaker minded. I was wondering how they were going to pull off the human stalker element and knew that I was in for an interesting ride. 

Review: 

At the start of the book Christine Feehan's Dark Guardian prologue, she dives into Lucian's past along with Jaxon's. She brings up abuse and makes you think about it and how love can overcome nearly anything. Even a bleak existence. I wasn't expecting the harsh life that she lived. The idea of someone going through this would make anyone's heart go out to her.

What made me take one star off this great story was due to a few points. One of those points was down to the way that Jaxon went from being really strong to depending on Lucian in a big way. The second point was Drake was made a huge problem then seemed to drop off near the end that made me uneasy. The final point was that wedding was strange compared to her other books and wonder why other humans who were converted into Comparthians weren't given the same thing.

What I did like:

The action was more in this book than the others in my mind. I like how Jaxon got involved in the fight with the ghouls and vampires. I think that it kept some of her strength. I wish there was more of this in the book. I also like how she was able to break through some of Lucian's commands because she was scared for his safety. I like how the twin helped her save Lucian when he was shot.

Wicked: Pretty Little Liars Review

Hello all, 

I'm getting through my reading list for this month well and I hope to have more reviews up soon. Anyway here is the review that I did for Sara Shepard. 

Wicked Pretty Little Liars 
Book 5 
By Sara Shepard

In idyllic Rosewood, four very pretty girls just can't help but be bad. . .
Hanna will stop at nothing to be Rosewood's queen bee. Spencer's digging up her family secrets. Emily can't stop thinking about her new boyfriend. And Aria approves a little too strongly of her mom's taste in men.
Now that Ali's killer is finally behind bars, the girls think they're safe. But those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it. And they should know by now that I'm always watching. 

5/5 Stars 
Review

This is a great book from the start to the end. I can't wait to see how the series goes and with a Perfectionists series starting soon I am even more exciting. She got into the depths of a much more complicated storyline that had you have to turn the next page to see what happens next. It's something that I believe will keep those who love YA Thriller reads. I have so much to learn and to enjoy.

Song of The Current By Sarah Tolcser Review

Hello all,

I'm diving into the depths of "Song of The Current" by Sarah Tolcser. I got this from the Bookloot box and I love that box. It introduced me to so many great things and I can't say how much I love that box crate I got. I have to say it encouraged me to get the Owl Crate box.

Song of The Current By Sarah Tolcser

Caroline Oresteia is destined for the river. Her father is a wherryman, as was her grandmother. All Caro needs is for the river god to whisper her name, and her fate is sealed. But at seventeen, Caro may be too late.
So when pirates burn ships and her father is arrested, Caro volunteers to transport mysterious cargo in exchange for his release. Secretly, Caro hopes that by piloting her own wherry, the river god will finally speak her name.
But when the cargo becomes more than Caro expected, she finds herself caught in a web of politics and lies. With much more than her father's life at stake, Caro must choose between the future she knows, and the one she could have never imagined.

5/5 Stars

This book was slow in places and made it hard for me to read. There were some pieces that made me stop feeling like this was a Louisiana book but felt slightly sad it wasn't set there. I love the whole concept of the book. I thought it was a standalone book until I saw the second one was up for sale and that ending was a happy ending for now so I wondered if the author planned another one. I was delighted to see that she had. I loved the romance story even though I feel like the book should have been a more matured book as there were scenes that were skipped over that shouldn't have been. I am so glad I read this and its a signed copy I have on my shelf. If you like sea-based books then I really recommend that you read this book.

Percy Jackson and The Lighting Thief Book Review

Dear all,

I got to go back to a God-based and themed novel with this great children's book. I can't wait to share my thoughts on it so I'm not going to waste any more time. The snow is falling outside and I can't think of anything better than to be writing this blog for you all to enjoy.

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief is the first bestselling book in Rick Riordan's phenomenally successful Percy Jackson series - now with a new cover look.
Half boy. Half God. ALL Hero.
Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek God.

I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. Now I spend my time battling monsters and generally trying to stay alive.
This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea.
Rick Riordan has now sold an incredible 55 million copies of his books worldwide

Review: 

5/5 Stars 

This is such a quick read and its different in some ways to the movie and I found myself liking the book more than the movie. That didn't surprise me. I shared this book with my partner who fell in love with it as much as I did and that goes to show the great writing style that Rick Riordan has to get two different people to fall into the depths of his story world and it to not matter where they come from. I can't say more great things about this book. Its a must read for all those who are older children who are wanting to escape into a much different world. It reminded me of a very 90s kind of book and it made me smile as it reminded me of my own childhood. Its a great book and I hope that you will get a copy if you don't already have one.

Killman Creek (Stillhouse Lake Series) By Rachel Caine Review

Hello all,

So I couldn't put this book down at all. I just fell in love over and over. I can't wait to share my thoughts with you on this another novel from Rachel Caine.

Killman Creek (Stillhouse Lake Series) By Rachel Caine
A #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller.
Every time Gwen closed her eyes, she saw him in her nightmares. Now her eyes are open, and he’s not going away.
Gwen Proctor won the battle to save her kids from her ex-husband, serial killer Melvin Royal, and his league of psychotic accomplices. But the war isn’t over. Not since Melvin broke out of prison. Not since she received a chilling text…
You’re not safe anywhere now.
Her refuge at Stillhouse Lake has become a trap. Gwen leaves her children in the protective custody of a fortified, well-armed neighbor. Now, with the help of Sam Cade, brother of one of Melvin’s victims, Gwen is going hunting. She’s learned how from one of the sickest killers alive.
But what she’s up against is beyond anything she feared—a sophisticated and savage mind game calculated to destroy her. As trust beyond her small circle of friends begins to vanish, Gwen has only fury and vengeance to believe in as she closes in on her prey. And sure as the night, one of them will die.

5 out of 5 Stars 

Review

This is one of the few books I wasn't able to ignore and just put out of my mind. It clung to me and it demanded my attention. I got completely lost in the danger that Gwen was living in. I understand her need to hunt rather than hide. I admire her for that. I got the sense that this wasn't the end of this story and I was excited. I wasn't ready to say goodbye to Gwen or Sam. I love how much fight the children in this book had. That I think really shows how much if I got to be a mother I would want my children to feel and believe the same things. I also have to say I just love the way that you get sucked in deeper and deeper with every page. This isn't something that you will want to miss out on. I see this book doing really well for some time to come.

Unbelievable (Pretty Little Liars #4) By Sara Shepard

Hello all,

So my addiction to thrillers and YA novels continued with me just reading this book so fast. I can't wait to share my thoughts on it.

Unbelievable (Pretty Little Liars #4) By Sara Shepard 

In Rosewood, where the air smells like apples and Chanel No. 5, nothing is as it seems. Five best friends once shared everything - even their deepest, darkest secrets. Back then for Aria, Spencer, Hanna, and Emily it was a dream come true . . . until Alison, the most beautiful of them all, suddenly vanished.
Now someone named A has turned their charmed lives into a living nightmare. With A's threats turning dangerous and Ali's killer still on the loose, the girls must uncover the truth, but will it bring an end to the horror . . . or is this just the beginning?

5/5 Stars

Review

The danger that Hanna goes through is something that makes you gulp. She and Emily really take the centre stage in this next one in the series. I find myself getting lost in the way they are searching for answers and there isn't any coming easily to them. I find that this on has a lot of breath holding moments and I love who Hanna finds comfort in. I really do. I like how we learn more about Jenna's history as well. There is just so much that is offered in this book that words aren't doing it justice about how much I loved it.
