Waiting on Wednesday 06/17/20

Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

The Nesting by C.J. Cooke (September 29, 2020 by Berkley Books)

It’s been a while since I featured a horror title, so today I wanted to talk about a book I’m very excited about: a blend of Nordic fable, modern Gothic chills and psychological suspense, The Nesting also takes place in a snowy setting. It’s like this one was meant for me!

The woods are creeping in on a nanny and two young girls in this chilling modern Gothic thriller.

Architect Tom Faraday is determined to finish the high-concept, environmentally friendly home he’s building in Norway—in the same place where he lost his wife, Aurelia, to suicide. It was their dream house, and he wants to honor her with it.

Lexi Ellis takes a job as his nanny and immediately falls in love with his two young daughters, especially Gaia. But something feels off in the isolated house nestled in the forest along the fjord. Lexi sees mysterious muddy footprints inside the home. Aurelia’s diary appears in Lexi’s room one day. And Gaia keeps telling her about seeing the terrifying Sad Lady. . . .

Soon Lexi suspects that Aurelia didn’t kill herself and that they are all in danger from something far more sinister lurking around them.

  1. Ooo… a bit of Nordic gothic naughtiness:)). I hope you enjoy this one – I’m still debating whether to face that mushroom risotto waiting for me in the freezer after recently completing Mexican Gothic!


  2. Yup, started thinking bad idea when I read “in the same place where he lost his wife, Aurelia, to suicide” but the muddy footprints and diary seal the deal. 🙂

    This sounds like it could be amazing.
