Here's my pick for the week, that I seriously can't wait for:
by Rin Chupeco
Publication Date: August 5, 2014
You may think me biased, being murdered myself. But my state of being has nothing to do with the curiosity toward my own species, if we can be called such. We do not go gentle, as your poet encourages, into that good night.
A dead girl walks the streets.
She hunts murderers. Child killers, much like the man who threw her body down a well three hundred years ago.
And when a strange boy bearing stranger tattoos moves into the neighborhood so, she discovers, does something else. And soon both will be drawn into the world of eerie doll rituals and dark Shinto exorcisms that will take them from American suburbia to the remote valleys and shrines of Aomori, Japan.
Because the boy has a terrifying secret - one that would just kill to get out.
The Girl from the Well is A YA Horror novel pitched as "Dexter" meets "The Grudge", based on a well-loved Japanese ghost story.
I am a weenie when it comes to scary things: books, movies, the dark...etc. But for some reason, and I think it's that her motivation for killing is revenge on child killers, I really want to read this book. I know that there will be a great mystery and good murder (uh, that's an oxymoron, but oh well), and I want it in my grubby mitts already!!
What book are you waiting for?
