“Roses have both petals and thorns, my dark flower. You needn’t believe something weak because it appears delicate. Show the world your bravery.”

I just started on this book yesterday but so far I’m really enjoying it. I’ve always had a bit of a fascination with Jack and Ripper and have enjoyed fiction based on his time of terror on multiple occasions. So far, the only complaint I have is that the dialogue doesn’t have the same weight as the rest of the story. It almost feels as if the dialogue is juvenile while the descriptions etc delve into heavy topics such as murder and scientific autopsy. Only about a quarter into it so we’ll see how the rest goes.

What did you recently finish reading?

“The books we love, they love us back. And just as we mark our places in the pages, those pages leave their marks on us. I can see it in you, sure as I see it in me. You’re a daughter of the words. A girl with a story to tell.”

Let us be honest here, I didn’t actually finish this book. It is currently in my DNF pile. Now, while you are picking your jaw up off of the floor, I’ll tell you why I DNFed it. He killed a cat. I may get over that and pick this book up again some time in the future once I am passed that fact but right now I’m too pissed to care. That is some bullshit. Never kill the dog or the cat.

What do you think you’ll read next?

Help me out here folks! I’m in the mood for a good murder mystery or horror. Preferably one that is historical fiction based prior to 1900. Any amount of violence/gore is fine as long as the dog/cat/child doesn’t die.  Any recommendations?
