Waiting On Wednesday #12

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This weeks "can't-wait-to-read" pick for me is:

The Name Of The Star (Shades Of London #1)
Author: Maureen Johnson
Publication Date: September 20th, 2011

"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." ~Goodreads

I've been looking forward o this book coming out for quite awhile now! The synopsis really grabbed my attention when I read it, I don't read a ton of books from the Thriller genre but this one seems like it could be something really good. I also really love the cover of this one, it has a kind of creepy, mysterious feel to it and I think that adds to the overall appeal of the book. I'll definitely be picking this one up!

What are you waiting for this Wednesday?
