Waiting on Wednesday #21

Waiting On Wednesday hosted by Breaking The Spine

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by the fantastic people over at Breaking The Spine that highlights upcoming releases that we are excited about.

For this week my pre-publication selection that I can’t wait for is:

The Fall by Bethany Griffin

Set For Release On: October 7th, 2014

Summary From GoodreadsThe 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.


Read that last bit again. A reimagining of something Edgar Allan Poe wrote? Do you need any other reason to check this out? I don’t. However, the cover really does it for me too, though the font isn’t as somber as the rest of it which is a little distracting.

The main character is going to be starting in a coffin, how is that not incredibly intriguing? I can’t wait to discover what is going on in this world, how she plans to escape and rescue her brother, and what the heck is going on with this darker version of a “smart” house.

This is going to be a perfect October read, one I’ll likely save for Halloween unless I somehow get an early copy of it. What book are you “Waiting On”? Let me know in the comments and/or leave a link to your own WoW post and I will make sure to stop by! Thanks for checking out my Waiting On Wednesday! ^.^

  1. OH YES. I am so excited for this one! Bethany Griffin NAILED the Poe vibe in her Red Death books, so I think this is going to be even better. I love The Fall of the House of Usher! Great, great pick! 🙂
