The Truth About Book Blogging (from 2 not-so-professional book bloggers)

Just over a year ago, two (somewhat tipsy) girls decided to start a book blog. Our reasoning? We read a lot and just have a lot of feelings and wanted to share with them. Neither of us had any experience with the whole "business" aspect of branding/marketing, etc. We know absolutely nothing about SEO, and 99.9% of the time our Instagram promotions are denied (and we still have literally no idea why...if you know the secret to Insta, slide into our DMs and help a Shih Tzu out).

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco – Book Review

A deliciously creepy horror novel with a story line 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 debut from author Kerri Maniscalco impossible to forget.
