"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights eagerly-anticipated upcoming releases.
My Pick This Week:
Title: The FallAuthor: Bethany GriffinGenres: YA, Paranormal, Supernatural, Retellings, GothicRelease Date: October 7, 2014Madeline 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.
I haven't been one for retellings. But I think this one could work. It sounds really interesting and Poe was such a tragic and unique soul, there's really a lot of ways it can go. I'm definitely curious.
