Waiting on Wednesday: The Madness Underneath

"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly feature created by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

The Madness Underneath (Shades of London #2) by Maureen Johnson.
Expected Publication: March 28, 2013.

Goodreads Summary:

When madness stalks the streets of London, no one is safe…

There’s a creepy new terror haunting modern-day London. Fresh from defeating a Jack the Ripper killer, Rory must put her new-found hunting skills to the test before all hell breaks loose…

But enemies are not always who you expect them to be and crazy times call for crazy solutions. A thrilling teen mystery.

I'm very excited for this one! I read the first Shades of London novel, The Name of the Star, at the recommendation of a friend and I thought it was great! It was a fresh re-imagination of the Jack the Ripper mystery with a new twist, and I'm looking forward to seeing where Johnson takes the storyline and the characters first introduced in The Name of the Star.
Luckily, March isn't too far away! Only 5 more months!

P.S: Keep an eye out for my review of The Name of the Star tomorrow. Maybe after reading it you'll be waiting on The Madness Underneath too!


  1. Interesting premise! Maureen Johnson isn't an author that I'm familiar with - looking forward to checking this out!

    Here's my WOW!

    Between the Bind

    1. I would definitely recommend looking up The Name of the Star, especially if you enjoy paranormal YA fiction. It was a fun book but got pretty creepy as well!

  2. New follower. Ummm your cover is very different than the one I have on my ARC of this. Nice layout. Come visit me as well.


    1. This is the cover they had on Goodreads for the book. I'm not sure if this was a temporary cover or if it's going to be the final, but it was the main cover for the book on the site. We'll see come March, I guess!
      I'd be happy to stop by and see your blog. Thank you for following! :)


I'd love to hear what you think!
