[Waiting on Wednesday] The Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Title: The Dead House 

Author: Dawn Kurtagich

Publisher: Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

Release Date: September 15th 2015 

Debut author Dawn Kurtagich is dead on in this terrifying psychological thriller!

Over two decades have passed since the fire at Elmbridge High, an inferno that took the lives of three teenagers. Not much was known about the events leading up to the tragedy - only that one student, Carly Johnson, vanished without a trace...

...until a diary is found hidden in the ruins.

But the diary, badly scorched, does not belong to Carly Johnson. It belongs to Kaitlyn Johnson, a girl who shouldn't exist Who was Kaitlyn? Why did she come out only at night? What is her connection to Carly?

The case has been reopened. Police records are being reexamined: psychiatric reports, video footage, text messages, e-mails. And the diary.

The diary that paints a much more sinister version of events than was ever made publicly known.

Though I don't like watching horror movies, I somehow have a weird fascination with horror novels. This book sounds fantastically creepy and really quite scary. I've been hearing nothing but great things about this book. This book would be a great halloween read and I'm kind of looking forward to being freaked out by this novel!

Happy Reading!

  3. I'm waiting on this one too! Heh, what a coincidence. I received a review copy through Netgalley so I can read it sooner.

    Here is my WoW post.

  4. I've seen this one around, it looks pretty good! Great pick!
    Check out my WOW

  5. I agree with you on the horror movies. I think it's because the camera angles make me over anticipate, which makes it worse. This book looks great. Thanks for sharing.
