Waiting on Wednesday: 4/23/14

This bookish meme tells the blogosphere what we're waiting patiently (and sometimes not so patiently) for! It's hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine!

The Fall

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.

Expected Release Date: October 7, 2014

Why I'm Waiting: Number one, it's a retelling. Number two, it's an Edgar Allan Poe retelling. Number three, I read The Fall of the House of Usher, but it was through the old illustrated classics back when I was a little girl and it wasn't as scary as it should have been. I can't wait to read this one. I'm sure it will freak me out lol 

Will you wait on this too? What are you waiting on this week?! Leave it in the comments!

  2. This one is new to me. It looks so great! I read The Fall of the House of Usher for school back in September, and I think a retelling of this would be really interesting to read! I absolutely love psychological thrillers, so that makes me want to read this one even more. Thank you for sharing!
