The Last Little Blue Envelope • Personal list: Books Read in 2012 • I read the prequel to this book a few years ago. The books make you feel as though you've traveled all over Europe from your couch.
The Last Little Blue Envelope - Maureen Johnson I own the first book and couldn't wait for the second book. So I finally got around to reading it and it was very different from what I thought it was going to be. Loved it, but I felt like some parts were underdeveloped.
The Last Little Blue Envelope. Maureen Johnson again. Great YA writer! In the interests of full disclosure, I will have to say that this book is not quite as good as its prequel, 13 Little Blue Envelopes. But still, if you read 13...you have to read this one to see what happens to that Last Little Blue Envelope.
The last little blue envelope -Maureen Johnson Sequel to 13 little blue envelopes.. brilliant!

Title: 13 Little Blue Envelopes Author: Maureen Johnson Publisher: Harper Teen Publication Date: August 23rd, 2005 Genre: YA, Contemporary Ginny’s Aunt Peg was always something of a free spirit, and the two years she spent in Europe with little contact with the family weren’t really that out of character. But when she learnt that her wild and vivacious Aunt died in London, it never felt real, or even possible, to Ginny. When a package written before Aunt Peg’s death arrives in the mail, Ginny is whisked off to Europe to follow her Aunt’s last journey, lead by 13 little blue envelopes. She can only open the next envelope after she completes a task in the previous one. Lead by her Aunt’s words, Ginny travels in Peg’s footsteps, from Harrods in London to an island in Greece. With blue envelope in hand, she finds herself doing things she never imagined she would in places she only imagined visiting. In the backdrop of some of the world’s finest cities, amidst all the adventure Ginny will have to come to terms with what her Aunt really is: gone. This was my second time reading 13 Little Blue Envelopes: the first time I was filled with envy over all the places Ginny got to visit (although not her situation) and this time I am actually about to go to Europe in less than a week. This was a good book to read to get me psyched, and I’d recommend 13 Little Blue Envelopes to anyone who has, will or is travelling throughout Europe. The plot and setting are probably the strongest aspects of this novel. The story was always interesting and full of adventure and beautiful places. Like any trip, you think you know what’s going to happen while reading this book, only to have it take you places you didn’t quite expect. It was quick paced and fun, making this a book that really takes you places. One of the biggest flaws of this book is how unrealistic it is, especially when pertaining to the parental absence. From what we know of Ginny’s parents, they do not seem the types to let their seventeen-year-old daughter go gallivanting through Europe with no set itinerary or the ability to call home. However, I was able to suspend my belief, and let myself get lost in the story. Ginny herself never felt like a fully developed character, and I wonder if I would have felt more of a connection with her if the story was told in first person. The times I felt like I knew her most were through her letters. The other characters were well written and engaging, specifically Keith and Aunt Peg. The original plotline and the excitement of fast paced travel made this book difficult to forget and fun to reread. Whether you’re travelling soon or not, 13 Little Blue Envelopes is a book that will make you want to do things you’ve never done before. 4/5

I don't dislike this series and actually the second book was a little better than the first. But honestly I think I lot could have been edited out and this 3 book series could have been just one book. Nothing happens! All I do is read and read and wait for something to be revealed or something to happen but even the couple of action scenes just fall kind of flat. I'm just now starting the last book so I'm crossing my fingers it goes out with a bang..or at least not a whimper.

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.
The day that Louisiana teenager Rory Deveaux arrives in London to start a new life at boarding school is also the day a series of brutal murders mimicking Jack the Ripper breaks out in the city. 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--the only one who can see him. And now Rory has become his next target.

The Name of the Star (The Shades of London) [Maureen Johnson] on Amazon.com. *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. New York Times bestseller Maureen Johnson takes on Jack the Ripper in this captivating paranormal thriller! The day that Louisiana teenager Rory Deveaux arrives in London to start a new life at boarding school is also the day a series of brutal murders breaks out over the city
First things first: cover art! I really like this cover art, it's pretty simple but I love simple cover art. The book should be about the story, not the cover art. The cover art is simply there to give you a glimpse about the story and it is usually what makes me read the inside of the front cover. The words on this cover are big and bold and also slightly out of focus which makes sense considering the novel is about ghosts. ******* Summary: "The day that Louisiana teenager Rory Deveaux arrives in London to start a new life at boarding school is also the day a series of brutal murders breaks out over the city, killings mimicking the horrific Jack the Ripper spree 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--the only one who can see him. And now Rory has 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 a sucker for mystery books, and paranormal mystery doesn't come up very often in the book world so there was seriously zero thought to bringing this book home with me from the library. This one was very interesting, but in a good way! This book brings up this interesting concept: near death experience equals you can now see ghosts. Which happens to Rory because she almost chokes on a piece of food and dies. As a character Rory is amazing, she isn't naive and I seriously can imagine me being friends with her, that is how likable she is. Actually pretty much all the characters in this book are amazing, and I love pretty much all of them. Also for once a series with out a love triangle! I mean I love, love triangles but only if they are written well and that seems to be the default for many books so this one was very refreshing. Johnson shows that you can have a book without a relationship being a massive focal point, this one is all about the mystery. This one brings up the interesting and terrifying concept of: so you have a serial killer but only a couple people can see him and oh by the way he is a ghost. This isn't Ghost Whisperer, there is no crossing them over. I love love love this book! Highly recommend the series! Rating: 10 out of 10. This is an interesting new concept, love it! Content Rating: 2 (12-18). There is quite a bit of drinking in this book, however it is set in England so the legal drinking age is a lot lower than it is in the states. There are a couple instances of kissing, and some violence.

Book Review: The Name of the Star (Shades of London #1) by Maureen Johnson | The Daily Quirk | (Image Credit: Maureen Johnson)
Well, once you've got your head around the idea of a posh boarding school in the (weirdly ethnically cleansed) East End of London, then the Jack the Ripper stuff is quite entertaining. Can't understand why Rory's parents don't come and see her despite there being a murderer on the loose. Second half of bok, which is less baording school and more ghost-hunters is infinitely better. Still all a bit odd. And no idea about A levels!
The Name of the Star - 16-year-old Rory has just arrived at boarding school in London when a Jack the Ripper copycat-killer begins terrorising the city. All the hallmarks of his infamous murders are frighteningly present, but there are few clues to the killer's identity. Rippermania grabs hold of modern-day London, and the police are stumped with few leads and no witnesses. Except one. Rory makes a chilling discovery...Could the copycat murderer really be Jack the Ripper back from the grave?
Thrilling ghost-hunting teen mystery as modern-day London is plagued by a sudden outbreak of brutal murders that mimic the horrific crimes of Jack the Ripper. "A gorgeously written, chilling, atmospheric thriller. The streets of London have never been so sinister or so romantic."

16 YA Books That Will Keep Your Attention 'Til The Last Page
I have had this book on my DYING TO READ list since it came out but for some strange reason, I never got to it. This turned out to be positive in two ways: one, now there is less time for me to wait until the second book. Two, it will now be a connection to a wonderful trip to London for me. Spending a few days in London on spring break, I naturally wanted to visit bookstores. I'd heard that Maureen Johnson (13 LITTLE BLUE ENVELOPES, SUITE SCARLETT) had signed some books at Waterstones at Picadilly Circus the week before. I was pleased to find one still there and grabbed it. I didn't get a chance to really start on it until the plane trip home, but that truly was the perfect time, as the story walked through all the places I'd just visited. But this (or the 7-hour flight) wasn't the real reason I couldn't stop turning pages. Holy cow. Great concept, great story and even greater writing. Johnson's dialog sparkles with her typical wit (if you don't follow her on Twitter @maureenjohnson, you're missing out). Sprinkled with history, mystery and (finally about halfway through) mysticism, THE NAME OF THE STAR (2011, Putnam) takes Rory Deveaux out of her small town Louisiana home and plonks her down in a London boarding school located near Jack the Ripper's old stomping grounds. With a "crazy" aunt back home who makes a living from seeing angels, Rory is used to the odd -- but things turn macabre when murders that mimic the famous Ripper begin to occur. And now Rory has come face-to-face with the killer. The police are stumped, and surveillance footage of the murders only creates more questions. Rory is their only witness as Rippermania takes a frenzied hold over London. Each subsequent murder follows the path of the original killer, until Rory realizes there is something even more terrifying about the man she saw outside the school the night of the second killing. What's more, she has the ability to stop him. Equally gothic and modern, funny and horrible, TNOTS recreates the furor the Ripper had over London in 1888, with the instantaneous information of today's world. How could Jack get away with his crimes in a world filled with closed circuit TV cameras capturing the public's every move? If you're not a fan of cliffhanger endings, prepare yourself. THE MADNESS UNDERNEATH (Shades of London, book 2) won't be out until January 2, 2013. Arrggggggggggg......... UK jacket states recommended for 13+. The Ripper topic is obviously a violent one, so depending on temperament for these things, that age might skew a bit older.

Review: Such a Rush by Jennifer Echols! - Nick & Nereyda's Infinite Book List
Title: Such a Rush Author: Jennifer Echols # Of Pages: 336 Publisher: MTV Books Publication Date: July 10, 2012 Level: Young Adult Rating: 2 Hearts Synopsis (From Goodreads) High school senior Leah Jones loves nothing more than flying. While she’s in the air, it’s easy to forget life with her absentee mother at the low-rent end of a South Carolina beach town. When her flight instructor, Mr. Hall, hires her to fly for his banner advertising business, she sees it as her ticket out of the trailer park. And when he dies suddenly, she’s afraid her flying career is gone forever. But Mr. Hall’s teenage sons, golden boy Alec and adrenaline junkie Grayson, are determined to keep the banner planes flying. Though Leah has crushed on Grayson for years, she’s leery of getting involved in what now seems like a doomed business — until Grayson betrays her by digging up her most damning secret. Holding it over her head, he forces her to fly for secret reasons of his own, reasons involving Alec. Now Leah finds herself drawn into a battle between brothers — and the consequences could be deadly. My Verdict My love of the gorgeous cover is the extent of my love for this book. It was slow paced, trashy, and full of annoying characters. I couldn’t stand the main character of the book, Leah. While I admired her trying to make a better future for herself and get out of the trailer park life she’d grown up in, I just couldn’t stand her. She was always whining and complaining about being called the school slut (harsher word used in book), but does nothing to change it. In fact, she purposefully acts/dresses the way she thinks people expect her to. She gets mad at other people for thinking of her that way but thinks it herself. If I could use two words to describe the romance in this book I would say messed up.This is not your typical love triangle since Leah doesn’t actually have feeling for both guys. Leah’s been in love with Grayson since they were fourteen years old, but Grayson has never given her the time of day until now, when he blackmails her into dating his twin brother Alec. While Leah & Grayson’s feelings for each other deepen, they start to see each other in secret, while Grayson continues to make Leah go out with Alec, which made me furious! The one part about the book I did enjoy was learning about the planes and details of flying. While I myself am terrified of heights and am afraid to ride on a plane, never-mind fly one. I found it really fun to read about someone as brave as Leah and her flying experiences. As for objectionable content, there was an abundance of foul language as well as some sex scenes. Overall, I wish I hadn’t wasted my time with this one. It was all very trashy in my opinion. I definitely won’t be adding any of Jennifer Echols other books to my TBR.

Little Blue Envelopes Series by Maureen Johnson. Love this book. Want to do the same kind of adventures!!!
13 Little Blue Envelopes - a great, light read. A book if you don't want to read something heavy or depressing, if you just want to read something sweet and fun.

#ThriftBooksTop10 The second book to a novel I read in 6th grade. I really loved Green Angel. I figured out Alice Hoffman made a second book so I had to read it. It was just as great as the first one! Now I have started buying her other novels. I can't keep my nose out of these books. http://www.thriftbooks.com/viewdetails.aspx?isbn=0545141958
This might be my favorite book cover ever. I love how simple but beautiful it is.
