Waiting on Wednesday (6) & WWW Wednesday (16)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine and is meant to showcase upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting. This week I'm waiting on...
The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson
September 29th, 2011

Synopsis: 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.

I just happened across this book somewhere online Monday and it comes out tomorrow. I. Need. This. Book. For years, I've had a borderline unhealthy obsession with Jack the Ripper and this books sounds so good. *sigh* If only I could afford to buy books! 

 

What are you waiting on this week?
*****
WWW Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading.  All you have to do is answer these 3 questions:

1. What are you currently reading?
2. What did you recently finish reading?
3. What do you think you'll read next?

Simple right?  I love to read and love to know what other people are reading!

What are you currently reading?
Right now, I'm reading Love at Absolute Zero by Christopher Meeks. This is a book I got as part of a blog tour. My review will be up October 13th, and the next day, I'll have a guest post from Christopher. 

What did you recently finish reading?
The other day, I finished reading Amy & Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson. I loved this book. I'm hoping to have the review for it up tomorrow. Before that, I read Until the End of Forever by Shannon Hart, as part of a blog tour for Chick Lit Plus. 

What do you think you'll read next?
That's a good question...I have a bunch of review books, library books, and a few books I won...I have the 2011 Spooktacular October Paranormal Reading Challenge coming up, and quite a few books lined up for that. The first ebook in the line-up is Being Human by Patricia Lynne, and I'm not sure what the first paper book will be.

What have you been reading lately?
