It's no secret that I love creepy, eerie, things that go bump in the night kind of books. They're my thing...even if they give me nightmares for days. Those, my friends, are the very best books because they're so very tangible that they actually inspire fear. Plus, aren't our imaginations a little more terrifying than watching things play out on screen? I know mine is...
Title: The Fall
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Publish Date: October 7, 2014
Genre: YA, Thriller
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.
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature from Jill at Breaking the Spine.
