Something Wicked Stop with Giveaway: The Girl from the Well by Rin Chupeco

Thanks for stopping by! I have a great giveaway for you!
This is a book with a very different POV. You actually follow the ghost rather than the living. This gives a unique perspective since you are detached from the living. It is also one of the few books that have me wanting to read in the light. I'm admittedly a wimp when it comes to horror, but rarely had to worry about it. This one however... :) It's also set in a different culture than we usually get. I enjoyed both aspects. My full review is HERE.

Still need more convincing? Here is the book trailer:

267 p.
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Published: 8/5/14 
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.

  1. Zombies are the one thing that scares me. (So it's good they aren't real. *knocks-on-wood) This book looks really cool, Japanese mythology and told by a vengeful spirit!

  2. I have been seeing this one around and it sounds super creepy. It reminds me of The RIng which scared the pants off me. Thanks so much for doing a Wicked post, Melissa.

  3. I don't scare easy, so I love when I can find a book that gives me the creeps. I'll have to try this one for sure!

  4. Oh I remember seeing this. That is such a neat pov twist.

    I don't scare too easily, but when I watched the Shining for the first and LAST time (lol) ... it scared the crap out of me. So I guess freaky/creepy dead twins scare me ;)
