Waiting On Wednesday [@nic_sheff @harperteen @epicreads]

Waiting On Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine

My pick for this week:



HARMONY HOUSE by Nic Sheff

Jen Noonan’s father thinks a move to Harmony House is the key to salvation, but to everyone who has lived there before, it is a portal to pure horror.

After Jen’s alcoholic mother’s death, her father cracked. He dragged Jen to this dilapidated old manor on the shore of New Jersey to “start their new lives”—but Harmony House is more than just a creepy old estate. It’s got a chilling past—and the more Jen discovers its secrets, the more the house awakens. Strange visions follow Jen wherever she goes, and her father’s already-fragile sanity disintegrates before her eyes. As the forces in the house join together to terrorize Jen, she must find a way to escape the past she didn’t know was haunting her—and the mysterious and terrible power she didn’t realize she had.

A classic horror story finds a terrifying home in Harmony House, drawing on favorite tropes and edgy, modern characters to create a chilling tale of blame, guilt, and ghostly revenge.

Why?

I have loved haunted house stories since I was a little kid. The idea of something spooky/creepy/scary/frightening/startling being there but you can't (always) see it. When the hauntings (or believed ones) play on people's mental state and psyche, it can make for an even better story.

I also really like those stories where a parent thinks a move to x house or y town is what a character needs. It is what's going to put their lives back on track and make everything right.

Only, that rarely ever happens. Usually it's the lead up to something fantastically terrifying, dangerous, any/all ways not good.

I am really looking forward to reading about Jen, her father, Harmony House and finding out what this 'terrible power' of hers is!
