Waiting on Wednesday #62: The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall by Katie Alender

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

The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall
by Katie Alender
Publication Date: August 25, 2015
Asylum meets Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, in this riveting tale of ghosts, secrets, and family, from master of suspense Katie Alender.

Delia's new house isn't just a house. It used to be an insane asylum, a place to lock up "troubled" young women long ago. And a restless, wicked spirit is still at play--and it doesn't want defiant girls like Delia to go anywhere.

So the house kills her.

Now Delia is a ghost, trapped in her creepy home forever. As she meets the other ghost girls who haunt the narrow hallways, as well as the handsome ghost boy on the grounds, she learns shocking truths about the house's history. Delia also realizes that her alive and grieving sister might be the house's next target. Can Delia unlock the mystery of the old asylum, save her sister, and free herself?

Yessss! This sounds amazing! I love horror, I love haunted insane asylums (in theory), and I think I'd probably love this book! I just hope it's a little more "grown up" than Asylum...

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine.
