Today I thought that I would talk a bit about the book I am currently reading, the next one on my tbr, and some that I’ve recently finished and am going be posting reviews of soon!
I recently read We Are Okay by Nina Lacour and We Should All Be Feminists by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, each of them in one sitting and they were both great. I am going to save most of my thoughts for the reviews and my July wrap up but both were super solid reads!
On Monday when I was at Chapters I picked up Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco, which I had been meaning to read for a while!
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.
So basically its everything I’ve been recently craving in a book, historical fiction, kick butt women, and a bit of a mystery. I am about 100 pages in right now and I can definitely say that it is delivering just that! I plan on reading more of it tonight (since I can finally stay up super late and sleep in tomorrow lol) and then hopefully finish it tomorrow!
My next read is an exciting one: Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco, the sequel to Stalking Jack the Ripper, which I received an ARC (advanced reader copy) of!
I am thinking that I will do a double review post with both the first and second book once I am finished them! Would you guys like to see that?!
Hunting Prince Dracula by Kerri Maniscalco is on sale in September so make sure to look out for it!
On a semi-different note, I applied for a part time job at Chapters a few days ago! I have been wanting to work there for years, but I had to be 16, and I finally am 16 so I applied! Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I honestly think I would be perfect for the job! Fingers crossed I get an interview!
Also! I am currently holding some polls on my Twitter (@EmmaTheBook) about which books I should bring to the cottage next week, so make sure to follow me and vote to help me decide!
