Waiting on Wednesday - Double header

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine,  that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating or books that are in our TBR pile.  This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is a Double Header!!

Summary (by 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.

The Name of the Star was released last week.  I'm looking forward to this one because a) Maureen Johnson is such a character (have you READ her tweets??) and b) the book content is so different from her regular style of writing,


Summary (by Goodreads)

The noise between Patch and Nora is gone. They've overcome the secrets riddled in Patch's dark past...bridged two irreconcilable worlds...faced heart-wrenching tests of betrayal, loyalty and trust...and all for a love that will transcend the boundary between heaven and earth. Armed with nothing but their absolute faith in one another, Patch and Nora enter a desperate fight to stop a villain who holds the power to shatter everything they've worked for—and their love—forever.

Silence is Book 3 in the Hush Hush series.  I hate to admit it but I have yet to read Crescendo...although I think I'll need to re-read Hush Hush to get the full impact of this trilogy all over again (and to ahem...reconnect with Patch).  Can't. Wait. Must. Start. Reading. Now.
(OK, so I wrote this awhile ago.  Patch and I are reacquainted..."Patched" things up so to say...sorry.  Bad joke.  Look for a post coming soon!)

I'm excited to get my hands on these titles.  So many books...so little time...sigh....
