This week's pick
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Format: Hardcover, 400 pages
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.
I loved Bethany Griffin's other books, Masque of the Red Death and Dance of the Red Death (click for my reviews). I'm so happy she's re-imagining another of Poe's tales! The Fall of the House of Usher has always been among my favorites and I can't wait to see how she'll tweak and twist the story. And since I've got an eARC, I don't have to wait, hehe.
Have you heard of The Fall? Do you like the sound of it? And what are you spotlighting this Wednesday?
