Waiting on Wednesday - The Girl From The Well



A weekly meme brought to you by Breaking The Spine where we get to show off some of the books we are waiting to be released.



This week I am waiting on The Girl From The Well by Rin Chupeco

Expected publication: August 5th 2014 by Sourcebooks Fire


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



Why am I Waiting?
Did you not see the cover or read the blurb? A dead girl walking the streets, creepy stuff, Dexter, killing murderers. It's just calling out to me to read it.

  1. OMG! I've never heard of this book before and it sounds just like my type of book! It kinda reminds of Anna Dressed in Blood though. That said, I should probably prepare myself about the romance. =.= Also, Aomori, Japan. I'd be very, very devastated if Mt. Osore or the itako's are not mentioned in this book. It just has to!!

    Thank you very much for sharing this book because this definitely going to my TBR list. Happy reading!

    1. So glad I could make someone else's TBR pile grow!

      I haven't read Anna dressed in Blood, so this one will be all new to me then.

  5. Great pick! The Girl from the Well has been on my wishlist since I first heard about it, feels like it's been a long wait! And it's still not August... It's got some of my favorite things, a comparison to Dexter, Japan and ghosts and as a bonus it has an amazing cover :)
