Top 10 of 2017

This list got off to a very slow start as I was re-reading a lot at the beginning of the year, and then I read several newish books that I didn’t really care for. While not all the books on this list are new (or even written in this century!), here are the 10 books I most enjoyed reading in 2017. Continue reading “Top 10 of 2017”

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.


While not the best-written book I have ever read, Stalking Jack the Ripper sure was a lot of fun! There’s not enough books out there about Jack the Ripper in my opinion, and I’m glad Maniscalco gave this one such a fun twist.

I’ve had a book called The Imperfectionists on my TBR shelf since like, 2013 or something. I bought it, then got swept up in some other series and just never got around to it. It’s lived in like, four different houses/apartments and never been picked up. I feel kind of bad for it, actually.

As to which book I’ve owned the longest, it’s hard to say. I still have most of my childhood picture books. The rattiest ones, however, are The Cat in the Hat Comes Back and Horton Hears a Who.  Continue reading “I Dare You Book Tag”
