Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we have the opportunity to let others know about books that we are eagerly waiting for.
Title: The Fall by Bethany Griffin
Published by: Greenwillow Books
Release date: October 7th, 2014
Madeline Usher is doomed.
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 want to read it: I haven't read Griffin's Death of the Red Mask series, but I've heard great things about it. The Fall sounds mysterious,and creepily awesome. Oh, and that cover is scary too, right?
What are you waiting for this week?
