On My Wishlist...


On My Wishlist is a great event that Book Chick City runs every Saturday. It's where you list all of the books that you desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. I thought that this was a fantabulous idea so I thought I would join in!

The The Name of the Star (Shades of London)"The Name of the Star" by  Maureen Johnson

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."


  1. This book is available on request on Netgalley
    Cheers, Phantom

  2. I can't wait for this book either. And thanks @Phantom Paragrapher for the NetGalley mention. I knew that there would be eGalley's available from the catalog, but I can't believe they're available now. Thank you!!!

  3. Oh I'm with you! I'm curious about this one. Great pick!

  4. Thanks so much Phantom Paragrapher for letting us know! Hopefully my request will be accepted! ;)

  5. @Avery - Apparently it was for Australian bloggers only. I got a rejection notice due to territorial rights to the eARC. Shoot! Still keeping my fingers crossed that one will be available for US/Canada soon.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment! I really appreciate it!

Though I appreciate awards I have decided to make my blog an "award-free zone". Unfortunately I do not have the time to hold up my end of award-giving. But again, I appreciate you thinking of me!
