Waiting on Wednesday (16)...

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that I am eagerly anticipating.

This week's Waiting on Wednesday pick is:

The House of Dead Maids by Clare B. Dunkle

Publication Date: September 14, 2010

Young Tabby Aykroyd has been brought to the dusty mansion of Seldom House to be nursemaid to a foundling boy. He is a savage little creature, but the Yorkshire moors harbor far worse, as Tabby soon discovers. Why do scores of dead maids and masters haunt Seldom House with a jealous devotion that extends beyond the grave?

As Tabby struggles to escape the evil forces rising out of the land, she watches her young charge choose a different path. Long before he reaches the old farmhouse of Wuthering Heights, the boy who will become Heathcliff has doomed himself and any who try to befriend him.

A story with Heathcliff?! I am definitely intrigued. Wuthering Heights is one of my all time favorite books, so this story should be interesting.

What is your Waiting on Wednesday?

Swords are for fighting,


  1. Um, I'm a cover girl, and this one isn't doing it for me. Too scary. Guess that means I'd better read the book!

  2. Oh my gosh, that cover is so creepy. It made my stomach turn over. Wow, if that doesn't get your attention, I dont' know what will.

  3. That is a frightening cover! Sounds good though :) Nice choice!

  4. I haven't read Wuthering Heights yet but this looks really good. The cover is nightmare-worthy.

  5. I love the cover and description.

  6. This cover is freaky! And a prelude to Wuthering Heights? SOLD!

    Our pick is at BookSake.

  7. I love the cover, though I don't know if I would enjoy this one or not. My sister probably would.


  8. Wow! I loved Wuthering Heights & the spooky premise of this book! Definitely adding this one to my TBR list. :)
