Wishful Wednesday featuring The Fall by Bethany Griffin

Wishful Wednesday was inspired by Waiting on Wednesday and Desperately Wanting Wednesday by Breaking the Spine and Parajunkee.

Wishful Wednesday is my own little version of "Waiting On Wednesday". Every week, I'll pick an upcoming book that I'm anticipating the release for and showcase it here on the blog. This week, that book is going to be The Fall by the amazingly talented and awesome Bethany Griffin. I've already read her Red Death duology, that was based on Edgar Allan Poe's, Masque of the Red Death and enjoyed that quite a bit. So, I'm really really excited to read The Fall, and see what it's going to be like. It's supposedly another YA novel that's loosely based on another of Poe's classic stories, The Fall of the House of Usher. I love being able to tuck into a great psychological thriller, so I really hope that this book lives up to my expectations. 

Expected Publication: October 7, 2014
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Age Demographic: YA Psychological Thriller
Pages: 400

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.
