Waiting on Wednesday (15)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: The Ghost of Graylock by Dan Poblocki which is due to be released on August 1st. 

Everyone’s heard the stories about Graylock Hall.

It was meant to be a place of healing—a hospital where children and teenagers with mental disorders would be cared for and perhaps even cured. But something went wrong. Several young patients died under mysterious circumstances. Eventually, the hospital was shut down, the building abandoned and left to rot deep in the woods.

As the new kid in town, Neil Cady wants to see Graylock for himself. Especially since rumor has it that the building is haunted. He’s got fresh batteries in his flashlight, a camera to document the adventure, and a new best friend watching his back.

Neil might think he’s prepared for what he’ll find in the dark and decrepit asylum. But he’s certainly not prepared for what follows him home . . .

I love ghost stories.  The premise for this one seems like classic "don't read right before going to bed" nightmare fodder.  I LOVE the cover image, it is beyond creepy.  I may have to try and hold off on this one in order to enjoy it right around Halloween.

This sounds flipping awesome! I haven't seen it before so I'm so glad you shared! This will definitely be one of those books that makes me demand that husband investigate any creepy nighttime noises, hahaha. Great pick. :)
