Waiting on Wednesday: The Bargaining

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that I'm eagerly anticipating.

The Bargaining by Carly Anne West
Pub. Date: February 17, 2015


Goodreads says, "The fact that neither of her parents wants to deal with her is nothing new to Penny. She’s used to being discussed like a problem, a problem her mother has finally passed on to her father. What she hasn’t gotten used to is her stepmother…especially when she finds out that she’ll have to spend the summer with April in the remote woods of Washington to restore a broken-down old house. Set deep in a dense forest, the old Carver House is filled with abandoned antique furniture, rich architectural details, and its own chilling past. The only respite Penny can find away from April’s renovations is in Miller, the young guy who runs the local general store. He’s her only chance at a normal, and enjoyable, summer. But Miller has his own connection to the Carver House, and it’s one that goes beyond the mysterious tapping Penny hears at her window, the handprints she finds smudging the glass panes, and the visions of children who beckon Penny to follow them into the dark woods. Miller’s past just might threaten to become the terror of Penny’s future…"
Carver House--an old house filled with antique furniture and a "chilling past" is definitely right up my alley. I can be a bit of a baby when it comes to scary reads, but I love the sound of this one. Perhaps I won't read it at night though!  What do you guys think?

  2. Something about a girl running and something watching is always so creepy. Too bad it doesn't come out in time for Halloween. : )

    1. I know….initially I thought this was going to come out in October too, but we have to wait till February. It does seem like the perfect Halloween read though. Thanks for visiting, Juju!

  3. I think this sounds really good...and really scary. I wouldn't read it at night. I remember not being able to read Libba Bray's Diviners at night too. :)

    1. I know! I am surprised I am drawn to this book since I can be a big baby about scary books, but there's something about an old home with a chilling past that I find so awesome. Maybe b/c I live in an old home? And YES! I couldn't read The Diviners at night either. SO CREEPY! Thanks for visiting, Christina!
