In this third installment in the #1 bestselling Stalking Jack the Ripper series, a luxurious ocean liner becomes a floating prison of scandal, madness, and horror when passengers are murdered one by one…with nowhere to run from the killer. .

Audrey Rose Wadsworth and her partner-in-crime-investigation, Thomas Cresswell, are en route to New York to help solve another blood-soaked mystery. Embarking on a week-long voyage across the Atlantic on the opulent RMS Etruria, they’re delighted to discover a traveling troupe of circus performers, fortune tellers, and a certain charismatic young escape artist entertaining the first-class passengers nightly.

But then, privileged young women begin to go missing without explanation, and a series of brutal slayings shocks the entire ship. The strange and disturbing influence of the Moonlight Carnival pervades the decks as the murders grow ever more freakish, with nowhere to escape except the unforgiving sea. It’s up to Audrey Rose and Thomas to piece together the gruesome investigation as even more passengers die before reaching their destination. But with clues to the next victim pointing to someone she loves, can Audrey Rose unravel the mystery before the killer’s horrifying finale?

Captura de ecrã 2018-02-06, às 11.19.18

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 out of a love of lists. It recently changed to That Artsy Reader Girl and that’s where you can find the topics for each Tuesday.

This week’s topic is:

Popular Books that Lived Up to the Hype

I will be mentioning 15 books I remember being late to the party and that definitely got a lot of hype at some point.

I won’t be talking about each of them in particular but this is a list of books that I definitely recommend if you haven’t checked them out yet! Also, if you are interested in checking them out farther, I linked any review I have to the covers.

What are some popular books you think lived up to the hype?

TTT: Books That Take Place In Another Country

Captura de ecrã 2018-02-06, às 11.19.18

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 out of a love of lists. It recently changed to That Artsy Reader Girl and that’s where you can find the topics for each Tuesday.

This week’s topic is:

Books That Take Place In Another Country

So for me, this topic is probably the easiest thing ever since I’m not from the US and half of the books I read about are set there. Because of that, I will feature books from 10 different countries. Some countries have more than others, but each country will have a min of 1 book and max of 5.

The books I will feature are books that I either already read or are on my TBR. If I’ve read them you can check my review by clicking on the cover.

Have you read any books set in other countries? What was your favorite?

Hey guys!

I felt awful about having to choose only 5 to 10… I read and loved so many books this year! But… I guess I can’t put every single one in here. But what I can do is a top 10 favorites released in 2017 and a top 5 favorites of other books I read this year but that were released previously!

So here are my favorite books of the year! The only things I did not include here were re-reads and manga books.
You can see all the books I read during the year here on my blog or here on Goodreads, as well as their respective reviews – for the majority of the books.Read More »

Ouran Host Club Book Tag

ouran-high-school-host-club-218-wide800

I was tagged ages ago by Nadwa@Painfullyfictional to do the Ouran Host Club Book Tag. So thank you so much Nadwa!! I’ve never seen this anime, although I must say that it does look cute and reminds me of another anime! I’m for sure a fan of both anime and manga so, I’m happy to be doing this tag and sorry I got to it so late! >.<

And since this is a book tag that is based on anime, I will answer some of the questions with anime/manga characters! But since I don’t know if a lot of you guys are interested in it, I will also get some YA characters in here! Double excited for this one^^

Also congrats to icebreaker694 for doing such a cool tag! I absolutely love anime and this is perfect for me!

August Wrap-up and September TBR

wrapupandtbr

Hey guys! I can’t even believe the end of the month is here already! I was a bit off this month, although all my posts went up normally, I wasn’t answering comments or checking any blogs because my classes started and on top of that it was also the only time I had to be with my family before Christmas!

But I’m back now and I am starting to answer the comments I have left and checking what you guys have been reading and posting! (slowly but I’m getting there!)

Anyway, this month I read mainly tiny books due to not having much time but I managed to read 13, so I’m pretty happy with it, and I managed also to complete some of my bingos with them, for which a post is coming out tomorrow!

But enough rambling and let’s get to the wrap-up!Read More »
