Creepy sounding book sounds creepy. (Also, do you SEE what it's pitched as?! This should probably be read with the lights on and when you're not home alone.)

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.

Is your pick this week fit for the Halloween season?


  1. I don't think I'd ever be able to read this unless it's daytime and I'm nowhere near the dark lol. It sounds like a great horror book though!

  2. OMG yes. I'm sooo excited for this book! I really liked the movie The Grudge even if it scared the heck out of me! I hate all the scenes that happens in the bathroom because the hair is just yuck and scary. Hopefully the book is as scary as the movie!

  3. This looks and sounds utterly creepy! But exciting at the same time. Awesome pick!

    Stop by my WoW

  4. YESSSSSSSS. I got this book from the pub after missing it at BEA, and I am so excited to read it. But only in the daytime. When the sun is shining.

  5. Wow! Sounds very interesting. Not sure it's something I'd enjoy though. Hope you do!

  6. I love creepy horror books so much! Especially around Halloween so I think I will definitely have to pick this one up! =)

  7. Looking forward to this one as well. Loved The Ring and The Grudge and all those types of scary movies so I should like this as well.

    My WOW

  8. I was recently approved of this one via netgalley (i think) hope we both enjoy the story when we get around to reading it.

    Happy Wednesday :)
