Here Is My WOW  Pick For This Week:


A Taste for Monsters

By Matthew J. Kirby

Publication Date: September 27th 2016 by Scholastic Press











IT’S LONDON 1888, and Jack the Ripper is terrorizing the people of the city. Evelyn, a young woman disfigured by her dangerous work in a matchstick factory, who has nowhere to go, does not know what to make of her new position as a maid to the Elephant Man in the London Hospital. Evelyn wants to be locked away from the world, like he is, shut in from the filth and dangers of the streets. But in Joseph Merrick, the Elephant Man, she finds a gentle kindred who does not recoil from her and who understands her pain. When the murders begin, however, Joseph and Evelyn are haunted nightly by the ghosts of the Ripper’s dead, setting Evelyn on a path to facing her fears and uncovering humanity’s worst nightmares.

A Taste for Monsters is a terrifying and haunting tale of the monstrosity of men and the salvation one may find in the unlikeliest places, from Edgar Award–winning author Matthew J. Kirby.
 










Yet another stand-alone that is totally new too me, it really looks and sounds absolutely fantastic and a book that I know I would love and enjoy.

  2. I'm a sucker for Jack the Ripper stuff so this one is already on my wishlist. The cover is both great and annoying to me which makes no sense at all. Hope we both enjoy it!
