Book of the Month: [December 2016] - STALKING JACK THE RIPPER By Kerri Maniscalco

The book of the month selection for December is titled Stalking Jack the Ripper  by Kerri Maniscalco. I was instantly interested in choosing this novel as my next read simply by the title as well as the lure of the infamous murderer Jack the Ripper. It doesn't hurt that the book is presented by James Patterson who happens to be one of my favorite authors. I was also intrigued to pick up a debut novel. Debut reads are important to the writers as well. It is always interesting to see what is put forth in a writer's first effort.

This month's book pick, Stalking Jack the Ripper, sounds like one hell of a read. The story centers around a young woman who's interested in murders that are happening quite frequently. She begins to investigate and pours over the forensic evidence. Jeopardizing her safety and her life, she becomes involved in trying to solve the murders being committed by a serial killer. But will she get too close to the truth?

I have been crazy busy, but I wouldn't want it any other way. I usually strive to post my book of the month selections during the first week of each month. But recently this has not been the case due to time restraints. Anywho...

Regardless of a hectic schedule, I make sure to find the time to relax with a good book. I've also had the pleasure of reading a couple of fab reads in the last month or two but haven't found the time to post about them. However I will do so at some point.

The book pick for the month of November is a suspense thriller that I have been dying to read.

Book of the Month: [October 2016] - THE WRATH AND THE DAWN [Bk 1] By Renee Ahdieh

*This BOTM post was originally posted on my main blog on 10.15.16. I have been crazy busy and literally forgot to post the entry on the book blog.

Fall is here and I have to say I'm very giddy about that. This is my favorite time of the year. It is the beginning of the build up to the holiday season. The fact that Halloween is almost here is a thrill as well. I associate Halloween with all things scary. So this gives me yet another reason to watch horror movies, which leads to Halloween night...a tradition of watching iconic horror movies. But of course...I simply cannot forget to mention the joy of curling up with a good book or a kindle, grabbing a comfy throw and a huge mug of hot chocolate with extra marshmallows during the Fall/Winter seasons.

The October book selection is a book that captures a reader's interest with just the intricate plot dynamic. A young girl sets out to get revenge on the person she feels is responsible for her friend's death and the deaths of others. But is all what it seems? I cannot wait to find out.
