#BookReview: The Impossible Girl by @lydiaykang via @RiseoftheReader

About the Book:

Two hearts. Twice as vulnerable.

Manhattan, 1850. Born out of wedlock to a wealthy socialite and a nameless immigrant, Cora Lee can mingle with the rich just as easily as she can slip unnoticed into the slums and graveyards of the city. As the only female resurrectionist in New York, she’s carved out a niche procuring bodies afflicted with the strangest of anomalies. Anatomists will pay exorbitant sums for such specimens—dissecting and displaying them for the eager public.

Cora’s specialty is not only profitable, it’s a means to keep a finger on the pulse of those searching for her. She’s the girl born with two hearts—a legend among grave robbers and anatomists—sought after as an endangered prize.

Now, as a series of murders unfolds closer and closer to Cora, she can no longer trust those she holds dear, including the young medical student she’s fallen for. Because someone has no intention of waiting for Cora to die a natural death.

My Review: This one was actually pretty enjoyable but it was a little slow to start and a little boring at times.  I did like the history that the author put into this one. About how doctors etc back in the day would get bodies. I mean you couldn't always count of people donating their bodies to science so why not just pay someone to rob a grave and just don't ask questions and look the other way.  I loved it!!  The other aspect of this one for the murder mystery was also done very well.  It kept me on the edge of my seat and I couldn't put it down.  I wish that the entire book would have been a little better paced so it wouldn't have been stagnet at times but other than that this was solid 4 star read!  The characters were great and the story was wonderfully creepy. Great for this Oct. season! 

Do I Recommend this book? If you love creepy corpses then this ones for you! 

Go Into This One Knowing: Slow and kind of boring at times, Great Story with creepy twists.
