Stalking Jack the Ripper ★★★★☆

A thrilling mystery with a terribly wrapped up ending. But most of the book was amazing and a great approach to popular period of history. 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, sheContinue reading “Stalking Jack the Ripper ★★★★☆”

For This Life Only ★★★★★

I have a theory that Stacey Kade wants to watch me die from dehydration. A scene that’s absolutely plausible given how much I cried while reading For This Life Only. Three minutes.

Lions in the Garden ★★☆☆☆

I was severely disappointed by the stereotypical romance and on and off strong female character in Luna’s Lions in the Garden.

The One and Only Ivan ★★★★★

Shadowhunters Episode 12 ★☆☆☆☆

I think this is the last episode of Shadowhunters that I’m forcing myself through. Once again, we fly through story arcs and subplots.

Shadowhunters Episode 10 ★★★☆☆

Here we are. Episode 10 of FreeForm’s Shadowhunters, a show I can’t believe got a renewal for season 2. Not only because of its general terribleness but also because of the copyright suit against Cassandra Clare. But let’s dive right in here because we’ve got three stories to follow: Clary goes to an alternate dimensionContinue reading “Shadowhunters Episode 10 ★★★☆☆”
