Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco ~ Blog Tour

My obsession with historical fiction runs deep.

I could honestly read historical fiction 24/7, seven days a week, all year long!

There's always so much complexity - historical background information layered with vivid retellings, colourful characters, and a little touch of storytelling magic here and there. Reading a well-written historical fiction novel is always a memorable experience.

Ready your daggers for a whole new historical YA treat!

If you haven't heard of the lovely Kerri Maniscalco, or her debut novel Stalking Jack the Ripper, then you're either:

(A) Stuck in the 19th century
(B) Having tea with a bunch of lords and ladies
(C) Or clearly living under a very large, very wifi-resistant rock!

Stalking Jack the Ripper is set to be one of the best YA novels of 2016 and I'm super honoured and excited to be a member of its street team The Knights of Whitechapel! And as a part of our blog tour for SJTR, each member of the Knights is putting together a post to celebrate the upcoming release of this incredible novel on September 20th 2016.

Read on for more info on the book + some fun extras...!

Seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord's daughter, with a life of wealth and privilege stretched out before her.

But between the social teas and silk dress fittings, she leads a forbidden secret life.

Against her stern father's wishes and society's expectations, Audrey often slips away to her uncle's laboratory to study the gruesome practice of forensic medicine.

When her work on a string of savagely killed corpses drags Audrey into the investigation of a serial murderer, her search for answers brings her close to her own sheltered world.

After seeing all the Stalking Jack the Ripper info and teasers we've been receiving from Kerri over the past month or so, I felt inspired. I wanted to create something that really reflected how I viewed the upcoming book.

So I hopped onto Pinterest and basically lost myself in its Pin-filled void for 5-6 hours! and put together some book aesthetics for SJTR.

Take a peek at the aesthetics below!

Kerri Maniscalco grew up in a semi-haunted house outside NYC where her fascination with gothic settings began.

In her spare time she reads everything she can get her hands on, cooks all kinds of food with her family and friends, and drinks entirely too much tea while discussing life’s finer points with her cats.

Stalking Jack the Ripper is her debut novel. It incorporates her love of forensic science and unsolved history, and is the first in a new series of gothic thrillers.

It will be available everywhere September 20, 2016.
