Waiting on Wednesday #10: The Fall by Bethany Griffin

Happy Wednesday, fellow book lovers! This week's "can't wait to read" is: 

The Fall
by Bethany Griffin
Publication Date: October 7, 2014

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 won't lie to you. I haven't read the source material. But this still looks like an awesome read and I've never read anything by Poe that I didn't adore, which moves this to the top of my TBR list!  


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
