*This is a SPOILER-FREE Review.

I loved this book so much. Jace and Clary were so cute in this book despite all the problems they faced. I didn’t expect that much of a Simon prospective and Maia but It’s cool, I guess. I can’t wait to find out what happens in the next book with Sebastian (yes I’m also not calling him Jonathan).
My rating is 5/5 stars.

Reread – Ebook

This reread has my heart so broken. In the last 60 pages, they were so many things happening. And how Dimitri was turned it broke me all over again. And I loved how Rose for once is putting herself first.

My rating is AGAIN 5/5 Stars.

“You will lose what you value most…

It hadn’t been me that Rhonda was talking about. It hadn’t even been Dimitri’s life.

What you value most.

It had been his soul.”

Reread – Ebook

My reread of these series has been great! I loved the audiobook version. Also, I loved how Dimitri’s and Rose’s relationship had developed. And I was so sad when Mason died, and how Rose hadn’t the chance to be real with him.

My rating is AGAIN 5/5 Stars.

“You can’t force love, I realized. It’s there or it isn’t. If it’s not there, you’ve got to be able to admit it. If it is there, you’ve got to do whatever it takes to protect the ones you love.”

Capturing the Devil by Kerri Maniscalco Review.

*This review contains SPOILERS!!!

This book was EVERYTHING! I was really looking forward to this final book and of course, I had my assumptions on how the story will be developt but this book exceeded my expectations and more. For starters, the wedding. I thought that while they were planning the wedding a new mystery will need their attention. But that which I couldn’t imagine happening actually happened. A girl, showed up out of nowhere with a piece of paper signed by Thomas (accidentally) and claimed to be engaged with him before Audrey Rose and that happened at the first 100 pages. I mead WHAT?!!! After Thomas found out that his father had arranged the whole thing because he wanted him to marry for money. But Thomas wouldn’t let that happen because Audrey Rose was everything to him. Moving on, the night before the wedding Audrey Rose and Thomas FINALLY ‘consummated’ their relationship and it was amazing. Kerri Maniscalco is such a gifted writer with so much talent. The mystery was also, very good. I loved the H.H Holmes theme. I kinda figure it out but that’s only because I watch too many cop tv shows. (hahaha). That doesn’t mean she didn’t do a fantastic job. When the killer captured Audrey Rose and held her in his basement, I couldn’t breathe from the worry and the agony for her. I knew she wasn’t going to die because she is the protagonist, her and Thomas. When she managed to escape and Thomas finds her, and he is shouting her name from fear that something might have happened to her and they embraced. That was everything! And when Thomas tells her that her grandma talked to the Queen and she gave her blessing to their union and that finally stopped Thoma’s father. And finally, we had a wedding, where they exchanged their vows which were too advanced for the time which made them even better. What Thomas said to Audrey Rose has stayed with me.

“Beyond life, beyond death, my love for thee is eternal.”

My rating is 5/5 stars.

Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco Review.

*This review contains SPOILERS!!!

I can’t believe i hadn’t posted a review for this book. This series is my all-time favorite, I love it so much. I love the characters, the mystery and o course the romance between Audrey Rose and the charming Thomas Cresswell. This book has everything. It is creepy, with a juicy mystery and a romance to be invested. I love Thomas his snarky attitude, how he always wants to explore every variable. Also, I kinda realized before the reveal who the killer was but that didn’t make me love any less this book. I can’t wait to continue on with this series.

My rating is 5/5 stars.

“You look quite lovely today, Audrey Rose.” He stepped forward, staring down at me, and I fought to keep my eyes from fluttering shut. Thomas drew closer until I was convinced my blood would explode from my body like fireworks splattering across the night sky. “Perhaps you should comment on the excellent cut of my suit. I look rather handsome today as well. Don’t you think?”

Reread – Audiobook
I loved this reread so much. This series is so important to me. This time I listen to the audiobook and I enjoyed it very much. Now I’m off to rewatch the movie and reread the second book.

I am in the process of rereading the series and honestly, I remembered why I loved it so much. Dimitri’s and Rose’s ‘relationship’ may seem wrong but for me it’s amazing yes they have an age difference but the love and respect between them it’s something unique. I have ever read a book that does a kinda ‘wrong’ relationship feel so right. And I happily report that I love this series even more than the first time I read it. It is amazing. I will always cherish it.

My rating is AGAIN 5/5 stars.

The Diviners by Libba Bray ( The Diviners #1) Review.

I really enjoyed this! Such a well-written story with so many details!
LOVED the New York 20s set! The narrative is the third person and follows dozens of characters, although Evie is the clear main character, and there are about 6 others who the story really revolves around. I thought each character felt unique and was interesting. The story was very well crafted. The book is about 600 pages and follows many characters. It wasn’t hard to keep names or stories straight, and they all wove together. There was one main villain/mystery in this book, and I thought everything else was revolving around him, only to find out at the end that he was only part of the story. There are a few different characters with their own romantic links. I was pretty much taken by surprise with Jericho’s role because it came out of nowhere, so I have to make a note of this. Jericho started showing interest in a female character seemingly out of nowhere, I did not buy him as a love interest because I felt he had no chemistry with her. But for me I prefer Sam’s relationship with Evie it’s more fun and I think they are good together. Hopefully in the next book.o many series I’ve read lately have just cut right off in the middle of the story to be picked up next book, with no sense of closure whatsoever. So, major points. There were a few things left unanswered, and that didn’t actually bother me because this is the start of a series and I can tell that everything will come into play.
My rating is 4.5\5 stars.

Becoming the Dark Prince (Stalking Jack the Ripper #3.5) by Kerri Maniscalco Review.

*This Review contains SPOILERS!!!!

I loved this novella. And I loved reading from Thomas POV it’s so amazing getting in to see what is going on inside his brilliant mind. Just when you think you can’t love Thomas Cresswell more, Kerri Maniscalco writes this! We all have darkness inside us, but Thomas still remains so sweet and loving, even with his own shadows. And it was nice reading about how deep are his feelings for Audrey Rose and how much he hated Metastopholis. JUST. PERFECTION.

My rating is 5/5 stars.

It took all of my willpower to keep myself a decent distance away. One word or a plea from her was all it’d take. It was more than lust. More than a physical need. I adored every part of her. If she asked me to, I’d unleash every one of my desires, pleasuring her in a way that would let her know precisely how much I cherished her.

A Curse So Dark And Lonely by Brigit Kemmerer (Cursebreakers, #1)

*This Review contains SPOILERS!!!!

This book was amazing! I was originally drawn to the beauty and the beast theme but the story it’s so much more. You go into this story believing that the romance would be instant but it’s not. Rhen and Harper’s romance was so unique and fitted. I loved the world-building with the castle and music that always played. Also, the side characters were so well developt and we perfect edition to the story. The relationship between both of the main characters with Commander Grey was amazing. Now, the villain, I think that Lilith was a great villain but so crazy behavior just because a man slept with her with no intention of a relationship. I mean come on! I am not saying that the author didn’t made an amazing job because she did. And that cliffhanger, in the end, I hope Grey returns to the castle and tells Harper and Rhen the truth and try to figure this out.

My rating is 5\5 stars.

Crooked Kingdom ( Six of Crows #2 ) by Leigh Bardugo Review.

*This review contains SPOILERS

These books were everything! Leigh Bardugo’s writing is phenomenal! I loved all the characters especially Kaz and Inej. The storyline was full of surprises. I loved how Kaz at the end outsmarted everyone even the council. I was kinda disappointed that we didn’t have a kiss of Kaz and Inej or even a hug. Wylan and Jesper have such a fun dynamic, it’s amazing. I didn’t like Matthias at first that is no secret but by the second half of this book I started to understand him, I even cried when he died. Nina was also everything and her friendship with Inej was so funny. JUST PERFECTION.

My rating is 5\5 stars.

Kaz and Inej Scene:

“She felt his knuckles slide against hers. Then his hand was in her hand, his palm was pressed against her own. A tremor moved through him. Slowly, he let their fingers entwine. For a long while, they stood there, hands clasped, looking out at the gray expanse of the sea.”
