The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall
Katie Alender
Expected publication: August 25, 2015
Genre: YA Horror
Asylum meets Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, in this riveting tale of ghosts, secrets, and family, from master of suspense Katie Alender.

Delia's new house isn't just a house. It used to be an insane asylum, a place to lock up "troubled" young women long ago. And a restless, wicked spirit is still at play--and it doesn't want defiant girls like Delia to go anywhere.

So the house kills her.

Now Delia is a ghost, trapped in her creepy home forever. As she meets the other ghost girls who haunt the narrow hallways, as well as the handsome ghost boy on the grounds, she learns shocking truths about the house's history. Delia also realizes that her alive and grieving sister might be the house's next target. Can Delia unlock the mystery of the old asylum, save her sister, and free herself?
This? This is horror. And after reading Shutter by Courtney Alameda and binge-watching Ghost Whisperer, yes, I'm in the mood for horror.

  2. HOW DID I NOT KNOW THAT KATIE ALENDeR HAD A NEW BOOK COMING OUT?! I read Bad Girls Don't Die as an ARC what feels like eons ago and have since finished that series. They were great. It is nice to see some more YA horror out there - there isn't a lot of it! While it is not my favorite, I still love to sit in bed reading these books, too scared to get up and do anything! Haha! Thanks so much for sharing!
