Stalking Jack the Ripper | Kerri Maniscalco

This book is fantastic 😍 the main protagonist is an intelligent, witty and feminist woman. I loved the mystery surrounding the story and all the forensics. The sidekick Thomas is also wonderful 😍😍 I highly recommend this novel.

Dragon Stacking!🐉 2y

This Savage Song | Victoria Schwab
post image
Pickpick

Love this book. This Savage Song pictures features a duel perspective of a female and a male protagonist. This book is a slowburn but completely worth it. What I love especially about this book is that it features no romance, none whatsoever. We very rarely see that in the YA field and it's very refreshing.

The Kiss of Deception | Mary E. Pearson

I read this at the beginning of the year and it's one of my favourite read so far. The book has fantastic characters, world building and story arc. It also has a twist that I never saw coming in 1 million years and that very rarely happens. Very highly recommend the story but be prepared for a cliffhanger. What are you waiting for? Go buy this book now!!

Excellent novel about a young butch Canadian lesbian. She is struggling coming to terms with her sexuality and more so about the stigma from strangers, friends and even her own family. Very refreshing same sex relationship between two young women. Very interesting perspective on the way society treats young women who aren't acting "as they should." Highly recommend. I chose this book to highlight for #juneprideweek

The Siren | Kiera Cass
post image
Panpan

This was my first Kiera Cass book and I don't think it was a very good introduction to her work. The cover is lovely but the story falls very flat. It was very strange - focused on the sirens relationship with the ocean who is their mother figure. Interesting concept that was't fully realized. Romance is not the main focus and is pretty bland. Full review on my blog - www.noveldescent.com - I'd skip this one 😞

cleoh I like her other series better. From what I understand, this was self published about ten (maybe???) years ago and then republished by her current house 2y
EliNeedsMoreShelves This is actually a rewrite - the original version of this novel is quite different, and (in my opinion) much better. It's nearly impossible to find, though, since the new version has come out. Definitely not her best. 2y
TbrandBeyond @EliNeedsMoreShelves That is really. Interesting. I had no idea. I will def check out The Selection series though. Looks like a lot of fun. 2y

Don't throw rocks!!! Here comes a very unpopular opinion 😳I hated this book so much lol It is marketed as an Alice book - Imean look at the cover and the title - Notto mention the series it The White Rabbit Chronicles. So what does it have to do with Wonderland you ask ? Nothing! 100% false advertising. Here are are they are getting away with calling it- The girl is named Ali and she sees a cloud shaped as a rabbit 😡😡😡😡😡
