This week I'm wishing for...

The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson 

Summary from Goodreads:
"The day Louisiana teenager Rory Deveaux arrives in London marks a memorable occasion. For Rory, it's the start of a new life at a London boarding school. But for many, this will be remembered as the day a series of brutal murders broke out across the city, gruesome crimes mimicking the horrific Jack the Ripper events of more than a century ago. 

Soon “Rippermania” takes hold of modern-day London, and the police are left with few leads and no witnesses. Except one. Rory spotted the man police believe to be the prime suspect. But she is the only one who saw him. Even her roommate, who was walking with her at the time, didn't notice the mysterious man. So why can only Rory see him? And more urgently, why has Rory become his next target? In this edge-of-your-seat thriller, full of suspense, humor, and romance, Rory will learn the truth about the secret ghost police of London and discover her own shocking abilities."

Why I'm Wishing for It:
This has been on my wishlist for way to long now. And it sounds so interesting - Jack the Ripper? Count me in!

What about you? What are you wishing for this week?


  1. Oh my goodness, I LOVE this series. Read it so many times my copy of TNOTS is falling apart! And I've lent it to all of my friends too.

    I love it so much I'm giving away a signed copy of it later this year ;)

    1. Wow, you really know how to sell a book! I'm going to have to check it out now!
      Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. I haven't heard of this before, but I'm going to have to add it to my wishlist because it looks really good!
