Hello gentle reader,
this week, I’m waiting on THE FALL by Bethany Griffin (expected publication: 7th October 2014 by Greenwillow Books). It’s a YA reimagining of Edgar Allan Poe’s The Fall of the House of Usher. I loved the MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH books by this author, and I’m really excited about this new retelling!
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?
“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by book blogger Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
Have you heard of The Fall? Is it on your TBR list? What are you waiting on this week?
This is based off one of my favorite Poe stories, and I hadn’t heard of it?! A travesty!
I am so excited about this! Thanks for pointing it out to me.
