  • Sasha Alsberg
    This is the first book I've really enjoyed reading after my horrid book slump and I LOVED it! I need more of Kerri's writing in my life, especially with her amazing characters like bloody Jack ;)

    Two words.Thomas Cresswell.Alright, of course there will be more words, I just needed to give you a proper motivation to grab this extraordinary book, and an obnoxiously yet damnably brilliant British boy seemed like a good idea. Now that I have your attention, let's move on, shall we? “One taste of warm blood is never enough, Miss Wadsworth.” Jack the Ripper.The Whitechapel Murderer. Leather Apron. Whatever you call him, he's still the sa...

    I'm so glad my soulmate isn't here yet, I'm not ready to mess up something that intense when they find out that not only have I figured out who Jack the Ripper was... I also figured out the WHY and the HOWI think it’s time to formally call myself out on watching too many episodes of criminal minds. It’s rendered me far too angsty and it’s also become almost second nature for me to meet any stranger and think that I’ve uncovered the real i...

    Damn it all! If every time I decided to have a snack, I picked up this book and it would be at a morbidly, graphic part of the book! Hence, said snacking ceased to exist! 😄There were parts of the book that were a tad boring but overall I think it was great. There are also pictures through-out the book. I might add some later. Audrey works with her uncle cutting up cadavers and doing gross stuff they do with trying to find out causes of death a...

    "Lord help the girl he set those eyes for good. His boyish vulnerability was a weapon, powerful and disarming. I was thankful I wasn't the the kind of girl to lose my mind over a handsome face." I originally gave this two stars, but the more I thought about it, the more pissed off I felt. Stalking Jack the Ripper is what happens if you drop a girl with 21st century "feminist" ideas in the Victorian era. Everything about Audrey Rose, from her spee...
  • Elise (TheBookishActress)
    Listen, I am acknowledging this is not the best book ever written. But I am also telling you that I liked reading it a lot. It is no-holds-barred entertainment with hints of substance underneath that I’m hoping continue to develop .Audrey Rose does autopsies. On cadavers. This is obviously not generally considered acceptable for societal women in 1888. She is kind of not the most street smart person ever and keeps doing things that are complet...
  • Lola
    Well that was a charming ending to a rather dark story. By that I mean the last three pages warmed my heart while the previous three hundred chilled my bones.Stalking Jack the Ripper was easily my most anticipated release of the second half of 2016. I wouldn’t go as far as to say that I’m fascinated by the horrifying personage that was Jack the Ripper, but my curiosity (and disgust) cannot help but awake at the mention of him and his doings.K...

  • Emma Giordano
    3.5 Stars! I went very back and forth with this book. In the beginning, I absolutely adored the story but as it progressed, I frequently found myself loosing interest. Serial killers are a huge subject of fascination for me, so I was a little disappointed I didn't enjoy the story as much as everyone else. It's likely that my own expectations for the novel weren't fulfilled, which is why it wasn't a favorite. Despite all that, I did still enjoy it...

  • Brittney ~ Reverie and Ink
    Full review update!Wow okay this was super fun. I mean really - if you're in the market for YA Sherlock Holmes with a badass heroine and a super snarky (and charming) sidekick, definitely pick this up. I do have some mixed feelings about parts and I'll admit I skipped some chunks because ew, not for me. Some of the ending really rubbed me the wrong way, but you can see those details below in the spoiler tag.Aubrey Rose is basically an unconventio...

    Murder mysteries are NOT my thing, but this was so much fun and so well written that I... still ended up really enjoying it?! The hype is definitely deserved. "Why must I either be docile and decent, or curious and wretched? I was a decent girl, even if I spent my spare time reading about science theories and dissecting the dead." I loved how sarcastic, witty, and totally capable Audrey Rose was. Sometimes I get annoyed when it feels like a fierc...

    “Pretend I am as capable as a man? Please, sir, do not value me so little!” Story ⭐⭐⭐⭐Did you ever wonder what it would be like living at the time when Jack the Ripper was roaming the streets of London? And did you maybe think it would be awfully exciting to be part of the investigation? Well, then this is the perfect book for you. Audrey Rose was never the one for living under the rules of society. Women can’t be a medical apprent...

    THE REVIEW IS POSTED*this review fills with minor spoiler. Read at your own risk.* "Roses have both petals and thorns, my darkflower. You needn't believe something weak because it appears deli-cate. Show the world your bravery." Wow. I'm so freaking disappointed with this book. Look, I didn't even have high expectation toward the book, because I know my expectations toward books often don't end up well. So I might as well not to expect anythin...
  • C.G. Drews
    Well this was full of blood and bone and a spot o' tea, which is such a nice compilation. Like shout out to the finale where Audrey Rose tries to calm everyone down and says "LET'S HAVE TEA AND THINK ABOUT THIS" wow I how she's literally the only sensible person in this book. However, I have to admit...I've basically read this entire story before lmao. It was in These Shallow Graves and I did get bored in the middle of reading SJTR because I knew...
  • April
    Absolutely loved the dynamic between Audrey and Thomas.

    Recommended to me by this poo, ♡Ninjaflower ♡ and recommended to her (and me) by the lovely, ♡ Johanna ♡ (view spoiler)[ Happy now, guys??! (hide spoiler)]I felt like this book came out of nowhere and took everyone by surprise, I’m truly astonished. Stalking Jack the Ripper is narrated by Audrey Rose, a seventeen-year old girl who comes from an affluent family during the late 1880’s. Despite the expectations suited for her by societ...
  • Grace (BURTSBOOKS)
    4.5 stars Stalking Jack the Ripper follows Audrey Rose, a young student of forensic science as she attempts to uncover the identity of the infamous serial killer, Jack the Ripper. I love everything about this book. I love the time period, the themes, I mean – science, murder, 1800s England, feminism, what’s not to love? The writing style is perfect. The whole concept of Jack the Ripper is so wildly fascinating it is impossible not to be inves...

    I just finished reading the second book and it's making me like this book even though I had a very boring time reading this book. AKSDHSJKFBSDLVBSDFGA nope, not RAIsiNG my rating.Tbh, I would have really liked it if wasn't fucking b00ring, predictable af and just so??? idk boring. The mystery and the forensic science things didn't interest me which is probably why I was so bored. Lowkey liked it because of the teasing, charming flirt Thomas Cresw...
  • Jiana
    Hello, my name is Jiana and I love Thomas Cresswell to bits and pieces.Now I admit the book was super slow and boring in the middle and I was annoyed by that, and it's probably one of the most predictable books I've ever read in my entire life (I called it the minute the character appeared Oh Yeah) but you know what? I don't care one bit. I love the setting, I love the plot, I love the writing, I love the characters and I absolutely can't wait to...
  • megs_bookrack
    **3.5-stars rounded up**Stalking Jack the Ripper is the first book in the series of the same name featuring young protagonist Audrey Rose Wadsworth and her charming friend, Thomas Cresswell. Audrey Rose is a great character, although at times a little flat, I liked the idea behind her. A young lady who doesn't buckle under the pressures of conventional society. Audrey Rose wants to use her mind and more specifically, she wants to use it to study ...
  • Kayla Dawn
    1,5* - DNF at 40ish% because this sucks.Not giving it 1 star because the idea had potential and tbh it might have gotten better if I'd continue to read. But I don't want to.So I was pretty sure I knew who the Ripper was and I didn't want to continue so I skipped to the end and SURPRISE.... I was right. This was such a cheap "plot twist". This book could've been really good if the love story wasn't this cringy and the love interest wasn't this fuc...

    Buddy-read with my colleague Dr. Katerina. If you need your heart cut out or, perhaps, lobotomy - we are humbly proposing our services to you.There’s nothing better than a little danger dashed with some romance.Okay, okay, I swear, I was going to start this review with a picture of human anatomy to prove you how serious this book is, and that a knife is not a child's toy (I am referring to the cover where a heroine holds the aforementioned knif...

    Really interesting novel, but didnt fully grab me! I will be reading book two, because know the story and world has been explained and I have a better understanding of the characters, I think I might enjoy the following books!

    "Roses have both petals and thorns, my dark flower. You needn’t believe something weak because it appears delicate. Show the world your bravery.” yeah so ,, this was incredibly disappointing for me and everyone should just go watch the buzzfeed unsolved episode instead BECAUSE SHANE AND RYAN NEVER LET ME DOWN LIKE THIS BOOK DID. this book has so many issues all of which we will be going into later but the thing is, I probably could have overl...
