Monday Reads: Jack the Ripper

I am now four books into my 75 book challenge. Now that I'm back to work, hopefully I will be able to keep up. I will keep posting about books I'm reading in case anyone is interested in reading along or checking out some of these titles.

My current read:

The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson

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 in the autumn of 1888.

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 now believe to be the prime suspect. But she is the only one who saw him. Even her roommate, who was 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 am only on chapter 7 but so far I am really liking it. There hasn't been too much action yet so I am hoping that the book will pick up its pace soon. Stay tuned for a review.

This next book I read in an hour over the weekend. Hilarious!! I am often guilty of autocorrect mishaps and enjoyed reading other people's awkward texts.
