Tay was the one to first introduce me to TJR, by way of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo - a book that awoke my previously unrealized love of historical fiction and tore me away from my exclusively previous allegiance to mysteries/thrillers/suspense. Seriously, the story that TJR wove was so incredible that I couldn't accept the fact that Evelyn Hugo wasn't a real person - I'm still currently sifting through Old Hollywood because I still think she exists. So when I heard she had a new book coming out? Sign. Me. UP.
Raise your hand if you have a New Year's resolution... basically everyone is raising their hand, right? Well, mine continues to be "read more, stress less," so today I'm sharing 19 books that are on my TBR for 2019!
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.
Dear Mrs. Bird is a delightful WWII (these two words don't feel right together) novel that focuses on the civilians and how they redefined their new normal.
#partner @BerkleyPub | The Kennedy Debutante is historical fiction but full of the real life drama of the Kennedy family. I loved learning about Kick and I hope you will too!
