[Waiting On Wednesday: The Fall]

Waiting On Wednesday happens every week on Wednesdays (hence the name) and is hosted by Breaking The Spine.  It's were people talk about the books they want to read about that aren't out yet.

My pick this week is...

"The Fall"
Author: Bethany Griffin
Release Date: October 7th, 2014

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Summary:

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 love me some Poe and even though I haven't read Bethany's other books, I can't wait for this one.  It sounds like the perfect Halloween read and plus, look at that cover.  I can't think of creepier one that I've seen recently and God knows that I love a really creepy cover!  Is it October yet?!
 
What are you waiting on this week?  I wanna know!

Great pick. This is a popular one today and that's because it's haunting and pulls you in. I love a good horror book and I have a good feeling about this one.

Happy Wednesday!
