Waiting on Wednesday 264

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose: 

"The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall"
by Katie Alender
Release Date:  Aug 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?
I love these creepy, spooky books! I loved Miss Peregrine, and Asylum was really good too, so if it's anything like those two books, I'm in!!

What are you waiting for this week???

  11. I love spooky books too! I've reserved Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children from the library and can't wait to get into that!

  12. Looks like a great, creepy read. Enjoy.

  13. Ohhh, spooky. I don't read many horror books because I scare pretty easily lol but I hope you enjoy this one!

  14. Great pick, hope you get a chance to read it soon.

  15. This sounds really creepy! I hope you enjoy reading it.

  16. Creepy! I've not heard of this one! It's definitely not my thing (I scare way too easily) but I hope you enjoy it when you read it!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! Have a lovely week :)

    Alyssa @ The Eater of Books!

  17. So excited to read this one! I love the creepy scary stuff and I love Katie Alender---I don't think I've ever been let down by her writing! She knows how to do creepy, that's for sure!

  18. The house on the cover looks like Downton Abbey. Hmm, too bad it wasn't set during that time period. It could have been "Downton Abbey: Halloween edition". :)

    Really though this book sounds good. It would be perfect for Halloween. I didn't read Miss Peregrine (not my kind of book) but I'll have to check this out.

  19. Is this in NetGalley? I think I've seen this before.
    I'm not much of a horror fan but I'm trying to explore that genre and this sounds really great because... Asylum AND Miss Peregrine's?! That would insane.
    Great pick!

  20. Really? I thought you were afraid of creepy - or is that just more the dark topic books? (like rape, abuse)

    Karen @For What It's Worth

  21. Oh ma gosh! So creepy. I want this too :)

  22. I'm a huge fan of horror and I love how YA horror seems to be more popular these days! Very excited for this one as well. :)

  23. This is the first I've heard of this book. Sounds interesting, and I definitely want to read it.


Thanks so much for your lovely comments!
