Wishlist Wednesday #1




Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added (it's entirely up to you), that we can't wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves.
(Hosted by Pen to Paper)




The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson is the second book in the Shades of London series. In The Name of the Star - the first book - Rory Deveaux moves from Louisiana to London to go to boarding school, just as a serial killer starts murdering people in the exact same way as Jack the Ripper. Rory then sees the murderer at the school grounds, but her friend doesn't, and she later finds out why. Because of a near death experience Rory can see ghosts, and that's just what the killer is - a ghost. Rory then meets more people like her, and she finds out that the killers next victim is her.

Now, I'm not going to tell anyone how the book ends, but I really loved it and I can't wait for the sequel. The Name of the Star was really great, and it kind of ended on a cliff hanger. Not a Rick-Riordan-cliff-hanger kind, but a small one. It left me wonder 'and how the frick is Rory gonna be able to continue now?'. The Madness Underneath one of those books that I really can't wait to buy when it's published, but that is probably going to stand on my bookshelf for a little while before I actually open it.
