Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper where we tell you about a book that is currently on our wishlist that we are excited for!

This week on Phil's Wishlist:


The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson:

After her near-fatal run-in with the Jack the Ripper copycat, Rory Devereaux has been living in Bristol under the close watch of her parents. So when her therapist suddenly suggests she return to Wexford, Rory jumps at the chance. But Rory's brush with the Ripper touched her more than she thought possible: she's become a human terminus, with the power to eliminate ghosts on contact. She soon finds out that the Shades—the city's secret ghost-fighting police—are responsible for her return. The Ripper may be gone, but now there is a string of new inexplicable deaths threatening London. Rory has evidence that the deaths are no coincidence. Something much more sinister is going on, and now she must convince the squad to listen to her before it's too late. (Goodreads.com)


I want to read this book mainly because I loved the first book The Name of the Star. I read it in late 2011 and have waited a VERY long time for this book to come out. So much time has passed that it completely fell off of my radar. But, because the YT book club is reading The Name of the Star this month, It reminded me that there was going to be a sequel in the near future. And there is! While I have not bought this yet, I know I will soon. I look forward to seeing Rory progress in her adventures, and I can't wait to see what happens after that cliffhanger of an ending the first book left readers with!
