Waiting on Wednesday … Asylum by Susan Vaught



Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Yes, I just got a ton of new books at BEA, so I have plenty to read. But I still get excited when I see a book that sounds good:


Asylum
by Susan Vaught
to be published on February 18, 2014
by Bloomsbury


Never, Kentucky is not your average scenic small town. It is a crossways, a place where the dead and the living can find no peace. Not that Forest, an 18-year-old foster kid who works the graveyard shift at Lincoln Hospital, knew this when she applied for the job. Lincoln is a huge state mental institution, a good place for Forest to make some money to pay for college. But along with hundreds of very unstable patients, it also has underground tunnels, bell towers that ring unexpectedly, and a closet that holds more than just donated clothing....When the dead husband of one of Forest's patients makes an appearance late one night, seemingly accompanied by an agent of the Devil, Forest loses all sense of reality and all sense of time. Terrified, she knows she has a part to play, and when she does so, she finds a heritage that she never expected. 
Okay, so some of you may think I'm a big scaredy-cat, and I am, but I love psychological thrillers. And ghosts. Not so sure about that whole "Agent of the Devil" business, but since I read and enjoyed Susan Vaught's books Going Underground and Freaks Like Us, I will have to trust her…

What book are you waiting on? Tell me in comments or link me up!

  2. Asylum looks so creepy! I think I'd be too scared to read it personally, even the cover scares me!

  3. This looks awesome! I love a good scary books and there is nothing scarier than an asylum. Do you watch American Horror Story? This last season was set in one. Great pick, Jen!

  22. I hadn't heard of this one but since you've liked the author's previous books, that's sufficient recommendation for me; I want to read it too!

  23. Okay I am freaked out already. There is an old closed down mental hospital near me that is a lot like this, with underground tunnels and creepy stories attached to it. I don't see how zombies could be scarier than this, though :).
