Waiting on Wednesday (108)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on The Fall by Bethany Griffin (10/7/14):

Description on Goodreads:
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.
Why I’m Waiting:
I loved this author’s other YA Poe retelling. And I super love the original The Fall of the House of Usher, so I cannot wait to see what Griffin has come up with for this creepy story. I’m not the biggest fan of the generic, creepy cover, but what can you do? This seems like the perfect book to read on a dark, rainy autumn night.

What are you waiting on this week?
