Alex is one of the BEST female protagonists that i have read about! this story is so good and i love how it has three point of views from Alex, Claire aka Peekay and Jack. You will be mesmerized by how good this book is and the ending is just shocking. Alex is a bad chick and she’s strong. AND THE FIRST SENTENCE OF THE SYNOPSIS IS SO INTRIGUING. One of the main reasons why i wanted to read this amazing book. -

The Dress Lodger is the sort of historical fiction that I adore. Set in London during the early 1800s ( a fascinating time period), it features a determined heroine (a 15 year old prostitute named Gustine) and has a delightfully suspenseful plot with just the right amount of corpses. Intrigued yet? Here are my thoughts:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Has there ever been a happy novel set during the Industrial Revolution? I've yet to come across one, myself. While I'm sure that people were sometimes happy during that time period, there's just something about the pollution and dirt and extreme class differences that lends itself well to tales of hardship. This is no exception. In addition to the whole 15 year old prostitute thing, you also have grave robbing, a child born with a deformed heart, and a cholera epidemic to boot. There are moments of triumph, but needless to say its far from a fluffy tale.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. The title of the book comes from a historically accurate practice in which Gustine's pimp/landlord rents her a fancy dress in which to ply her trade, with the aims of attracting a higher class of clientele. In addition to taking more than his share of her earnings, her pimp also employs a mute one-eyed old woman to follow Gustine around to make sure that she doesn't run off with the dress. This creates an overall feeling of surveillance that permeates the pages and might just stick with you long after you finish it. It did in my case.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Now onto corpse chat. They come into play when Gustine goes to a doctor named Henry Chivers in the hopes of finding some sort of treatment for her son, who was born with his heart outside of his body. Dr. Chivers agrees to try and help Gustine--for a price. The cholera epidemic is tearing the city apart, and Dr. Chivers thinks he can help. All he needs is corpses. If puts you in mind of Burke and Hare, that's not a coincidence. In this, the (fictional) Dr. Chivers has a connection to the famous duo that he's desperately trying to hide.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Dress Lodger is a superb piece of historical fiction that really takes a close look at the fabric of society.

I can't believe that we are already halfway through the year, thank you @whatsallyreadnext for tagging me in the #midyearbookfreakouttag. I have to say, picking favourites from the last six months of reading only #femaleauthors and #femaleprotagonists was not easy.
.
📚Favourite book so far: Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng, it was just so unexpectedly brilliant.
📚Best sequel you've read: China Rich Girlfriend was pretty good, though Rich People Problems ruined the trilogy for me.
📚Recent release you haven't read but want to: China by Edward Rutherfurd, I've seen it on @hodderandstoughton's website but I can't find it anywhere.
📚Most anticipated release for the next six months: The People in the Trees by @hanyayanagihara, it comes out this week and so far its incredible.
📚Biggest disappointment: Rich People Problems by Kevin Kwan, needed more Rachel or more Ah Ma. New book needed.
📚Favourite new author: Hanya Yanagihara, hands down.
📚A book that made you cry: A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara, more than cry. It broke my heart.
📚A book that made you smile: Crazy Rich Asians by @kevinkwan, constantly. I was chuckling all the time. Everywhere.
📚Most beautiful book you've bought: In terms of appearance, Our Story by Rao Pingru (@vintagebooks). In terms of story, Atiyi by Roxanne Gay, pictured above.

#QOTD: What have been your best reads of the year so far and why?

Are you the kind of person who suffers through a book because you mine as well finish it or do you hate to waste your time on terrible writing? I also would love more book recommendations. Prefer womxn authors, female protagonists.

I don’t know why but it always feels good when someone asks for a book recommendation...maybe because sharing what you love is so awesome! Right now there’s a big green wall outside The Strand and there are markers to write books that inspire you! So many titles I was excited to see....and two I wanted to share! Can you guess which are mine?! •

I am a city girl through and through. I feel energized, excited, ALIVE in a downtown thriving, throbbing environment. Growing up in the small mountain town of Paradise, Calif., I was always yearning to escape to big city life.
It speaks to me. Conversely, I start to feel oppressed and depressed in wide open spaces. The only non-urban environment that doesn't make me feel this way is the beach/ocean. There I am free.
What about you? City? Country? Beach? Mountains? Desert?
