Waiting on Wednesday #11

12:00 AM




Bloggers feature books that they are eagerly anticipating to be published.










Jack is spending the summer on a private island far from modern conveniences. No Wi-Fi, no cell service, no one else on the island but a housekeeper and the two very peculiar children in his care. The first time Jack sees the huge black mansion atop a windswept hill, he senses something cold, something more sinister than even the dark house itself.

Soon, he feels terribly isolated and alone. Yet he is not alone. The house has visitors—peering in the windows, staring from across the shore. But why doesn't anyone else see them . . . and what do they want? As secrets are revealed and darker truths surface, Jack desperately struggles to maintain a grip on reality. He knows what he sees, and he isn't crazy. . . .Or is he?

From nationally acclaimed author Francine Prose comes a mind-bending story that will leave you realizing how subtle the lines that separate reality, imagination, and insanity really are.



Release date:  September 25, 2012

Why I am excited:  
It sounds really creepy!  I wonder if he's hallucinating or if there's ghosts on the island?  The island setting makes it unique too. I'm putting this on my list of books to get for October to read before Halloween.  I'm going to have a week or two readathon of creepy books.  Probably won't get much sleep that week, but it'll get me in the mood for the holiday!  

Also, check out my review of Showbiz!
