Hey guys! I hope you all had a great weekend! This weeks pick for me is the first book in a series that I have been eyeing up for a while now! It sounds really interesting and I hope I can get to it soon!


Jackaby by William Ritter

Published: September 16th 2014 by Algonquin Young Readers

“Miss Rook, I am not an occultist,” Jackaby said. “I have a gift that allows me to see truth where others see the illusion–and there are many illusions. All the world’s a stage, as they say, and I seem to have the only seat in the house with a view behind the curtain.”

Newly arrived in New Fiddleham, New England, 1892, and in need of a job, Abigail Rook meets R. F. Jackaby, an investigator of the unexplained with a keen eye for the extraordinary–including the ability to see supernatural beings. Abigail has a gift for noticing ordinary but important details, which makes her perfect for the position of Jackaby’s assistant. On her first day, Abigail finds herself in the midst of a thrilling case: A serial killer is on the loose. The police are convinced it’s an ordinary villain, but Jackaby is certain it’s a nonhuman creature, whose existence the police–with the exception of a handsome young detective named Charlie Cane–deny.

Doctor Who meets Sherlock in William Ritter’s debut novel, which features a detective of the paranormal as seen through the eyes of his adventurous and intelligent assistant in a tale brimming with cheeky humor and a dose of the macabre.

    Great pick for this week Lauren, I’ve been seeing this series around for a while now myself but never really paid that much attention to the blurb.It sounds quite interesting, and the cover is certainly eye-catching to say the least.
    I really hope you enjoy this one. 😀
