Book 1 – Stalking Jack the Ripper By Kerri Maniscalco 

Synopsis: Provided by Goodreads:

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.

Book 5 – Broken Throne by Victoria Aveyard

Thoughts before reading this book:

I am still reading War Storm, the book before this in the series, so I have so many questions and anticipations at this point. BUT I am seriously in love with all the characters and this story line in general. I’m just hoping my heart doesn’t get ripped out of my chest. Guess there’s only one way to find out!

Book #6 – Cruel Crown – Victoria Aveyard

P.S. DON’T READ THIS NOVELLA IF YOU HAVEN’T READ BOOK 1, THE RED QUEEN, OF THE SERIES. It will not make sense to you if you read this before hand.

Synopsis:

Discover the truth of Norta’s bloody past in these two revealing prequels to #1 NEW YORK TIMES bestseller RED QUEEN.

Queen Song

Queen Coriane, first wife of King Tiberias, keeps a secret diary—how else can she ensure that no one at the palace will use her thoughts against her? Coriane recounts her heady courtship with the crown prince, the birth of a new prince, Cal, and the potentially deadly challenges that lie ahead for her in royal life.

Steel Scars

Captain Farley was raised to be strong, but being tasked with planting the seeds of rebellion in Norta is a tougher job than expected. As she travels the land recruiting black market traders, smugglers, and extremists for her first attempt at an attack on the capital, she stumbles upon a connection that may prove to be the key to the entire operation—Mare Barrow.

Thoughts before reading this novella:

I bought this novella on a whim, since it was on $10. So I am excited to read a little more into the back stories of Farley and Coriane (Cals Mother)! I am going into this with no expectations though. I am looking at it as additional information on some characters in one of my favorite series of 2019!
