Can’t Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.

What Moves the Dead
by T. Kingfisher
Expected publication: July 12th 2022 by Tor Nightfire
From the award-winning author of The Twisted Ones comes a gripping and atmospheric retelling of Edgar Allan Poe’s classic “The Fall of the House of Usher.”
When Alex Easton, a retired soldier, receives word that their childhood friend Madeline Usher is dying, they race to the ancestral home of the Ushers in the remote countryside of Ruritania.
What they find there is a nightmare of fungal growths and possessed wildlife, surrounding a dark, pulsing lake. Madeline sleepwalks and speaks in strange voices at night, and her brother Roderick is consumed with a mysterious malady of the nerves.
Aided by a redoubtable British mycologist and a baffled American doctor, Alex must unravel the secret of the House of Usher before it consumes them all.
Ok, so if you didn’t know I am a HUGE Edgar Fan. So any retelling of him is a win for me. I found this to be interesting and sounds like it might be creepy and I love creepy so I am 100% in. Plus the cover is weird and I like weird and this cover. I am really looking forward to it but the 176 pages makes me a little nervous because I hope a full type story can be told in that many pages. *fingers crossed*
