We are away at the moment, blogglings! (Camping, drowning, reading…the normal stuff.) But we will get back to you…on the 31st. Here is a freaky book review to keep you company while we’re gone.
Yay for creepy! Yes, really, yay. I know the blurb on this one doesn’t sound freaky, but trust me when I tell you, you can tear this book apart, page by page, but you will never forget the freaky images.
You’re welcome for that rendition of Tangled.
Thank you HarperCollins Australia for the ARC!
Blogglings, this one came out on August 20th.
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.
