As I’m sure you all know by now, “Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine (http://breakingthespine.blogspot.co.uk) which allows readers to showcase an up and coming book.
The pre-release that I’ve chosen for this week is:
The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall by Katie Alender
“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 a good scary story and I’m always keen to try out YA horror titles so I’m really excited for Alender’s latest novel to be published. And I don’t have long to wait as The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall is released on 25th August here in England.
Happy reading! 🙂
