Waiting on Wednesday (91)



"Waiting on" Wednesday" is weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming anticipated releases.












FROM GOODREADS: A riveting supernatural, southern gothic tale from Kit Reed. Readers of Joyce Carol Oates and James M. Cain will enjoy this unnerving tale.

Dell Duval has been living on the street since his accident. He can't remember who he was or where he came from. All he has is a tattered note in his pocket with an address for the Ellis house, a sprawling, ancient residence in Jacksonville. He takes up residence under the house in the basement unknown to the residents upstairs. He just needs time to figure out why he's been sent here.

In the house, Lane and her son Theo have returned to the family home—their last resort after Lane's husband cleans out her bank account and leaves. The old house is ruled by an equally ancient trio of tyrannical aunts, who want to preserve everything. Nothing should leave the house, including Lane.

Something about the house isn't right. Things happen to the men and boys living there. There are forces at work one of which visits Theo each night—Mormama, one mama too many.


WHY I'M WAITING:  A supernatural gothic tale - yes please!  Sounds like something I'll be thrilled to get my hands on. 

What are you waiting for this week????

  2. Ooh yes! I can't wait for this. There's something about a photo of stairs leading up into the dark that creeps me out, so I'm looking forward to a scary read!

  7. I'm waiting on this one too! A couple years ago I read one of Reed's books, I'm interested in checking out more of the author's work.
