Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco

Maybe Taylor Swift isn’t my queen of music, but she’s certainly the first American artist I ever bought an physical album from. There isn’t a song on Reputation that I don’t love, but the ones that have been on repeat are Delicate and End Game. Maybe it’s because I never expected to hear rap in one of Taylor’s songs, but I am in love.

I took a trip to Target thinking just maybe I might pick up the album, and I ended up leaving with a book too. They had so many titles I wasn’t expecting to see (The Princess Saves Herself in This One was a temptation well resisted), so it was hard to pick limit myself to just one.  I think the general consensus is that Hunting Prince Dracula is more enjoyable, but I’m hoping that I’ll adore Stalking Jack the Ripper too.

Have you listened to Reputation? Do you have a favorite song?

Currently Reading, Watching, & Listening To

It’s amusing to remind myself that a few months ago, before having read the All For the Game series by Nora Sakavic, it would have been an incredible struggle to decide which book I wanted to start reading. To add dramatic flair, it was a bit like balancing on a tightrope knowing that one wrong choice […]

Books I Tell Myself I’ll Read During Halloween

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Even ignoring the fact that the title is ridiculously ambitiously (after all, there’s too many books and only one Halloween a year), this idea usually only sounds good to me in theory. At the end of the day, I’m quite at peace with the fact […]
