Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I’m Waiting on Wednesday for The Fall by Bethany Griffin (Greenwillow Books):
She has spent her life fighting fate, and she thought she was succeeding. Until she woke up in a coffin.
Ushers die young. Ushers are cursed. Ushers can never leave their house, a house that haunts and is haunted, a house that almost seems to have a mind of its own. Madeline’s life—revealed through short bursts of memory—has hinged around her desperate plan to escape, to save herself and her brother. Her only chance lies in destroying the house.
In the end, can Madeline keep her own sanity and bring the house down? The Fall is a literary psychological thriller, reimagining Edgar Allan Poe’s classic The Fall of the House of Usher.
Why I’m looking forward to this book:
I really loved Masque of the Red Death, which was Bethany Griffin’s retelling of the story with the same name. So I have faith that The Fall – which sounds amazingly creepy – will be in that same vein. Also, this comes out in October, which makes for a perfect Halloween read!
Release Date: October 7, 2014
