Waiting on Wednesday is a book feature hosted by Breaking the Spine.
This week, I’m waiting on:
Goodreads Summary: “Asylum is a thrilling and creepy photo-novel perfect for fans of the New York Times bestseller Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
For sixteen-year-old Dan Crawford, New Hampshire College Prep is more than a summer program—it’s a lifeline. An outcast at his high school, Dan is excited to finally make some friends in his last summer before college. But when he arrives at the program, Dan learns that his dorm for the summer used to be a sanatorium, more commonly known as an asylum. And not just any asylum—a last resort for the criminally insane.
As Dan and his new friends, Abby and Jordan, explore the hidden recesses of their creepy summer home, they soon discover it’s no coincidence that the three of them ended up here. Because the asylum holds the key to a terrifying past. And there are some secrets that refuse to stay buried.
Featuring found photos of unsettling history and real abandoned asylums and filled with chilling mystery and page-turning suspense, Madeleine Roux’s teen debut, Asylum, is a horror story that treads the line between genius and insanity.
Okay, how flipping CREEPY does this one sound? Not only is the main characters dorm in an old asylum, but it’s a photo-novel, meaning that the creep-factor just got multiplied by ten. Because I won’t have to imagine the setting, it’ll be right there for me to see. Ugh. I’ll definitely be aiming to get myself a copy of Asylym soon after its release date, and then I’ll probably read it right around Halloween because obviously, I like to torture myself…
What are you waiting on this week?
