Waiting on Wednesday: The Fall by Bethany Griffin

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights books that have not yet been released, but ones that you should pre-order today! This week's book that we are anxiously awaiting is THE FALL by Bethany Griffin.  It will be released October 7, 2014 from Harper Greenwillow Books.


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.

Look for it- Fall 2014!

I just love Bethany Griffin and Edgar Allan Poe!!  I was a huge fan of Bethany's Masque of the Red Death, so when I discovered she was writing a reimagining of another of Poe's works, I was thrilled.  Plus, this one is a creepy psychological thriller!!!  Score.  Oh, to get my hands on an early copy!
