Blogmas Day 6: Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

Blogmas Day 6: Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

I liked Audrey Rose a lot. She is a very well-written character, and I love her fascination with forensic medicine. Unlike some other books, I didn't mind the 'I'm not like other girls' aspect I saw here. Because there is a lot of reason behind it that made complete sense to me. Her isolation from her peers and her history that leads to her interest in forensic medicine, for example. She has a lot of agency and courage in a time where aristocratic women struggle for it, and I really liked reading about her.

Sadie by Courtney Summers

Sadie by Courtney Summers

I've finished my reread of Sadie and it is still one of the best audiobooks I've listened to in a long time! This time around, I combined listening to the audiobook with 'physically' reading along on my eReader.

My 5-star rating remains as solid as it was the first time around. This has to be one of the most gut-wrenching, hard-hitting books I have ever read and I think this will be one of those stories, I'll want to keep reading for a long time. Read more
