On My Wishlist #3

On My Wishlist is a weekly meme brought to us by Book Chick City. Each Saturday I will post a book from my every growing to-read list that I still need to buy and dig into. (Yeah, a day late, and a dollar short - so goes my week.  I should have posted this yesterday, but this week has been a crazy one!)

This week,on my wishlist, I have:  The Dead Of Winter by Chris Priestley.  

The cover is so creepy, yet draws me in.  I can't help myself but wanting to read it.  The description gives me the feeling of The Shining by Stephen King, and I am such a Stephen King fan.  The Dead of Winter is set to be released January 31, 2012, so this week is the week!!!!

From Goodreads:  Michael Vyner recalls a terrible story, one that happened to him. One that would be unbelievable if it weren't true! Michael's parents are dead and he imagines that he will stay with the kindly lawyer, executor of his parents' will ...Until he is invited to spend Christmas with his guardian in a large and desolate country house. His arrival on the first night suggests something is not quite right when he sees a woman out in the frozen mists, standing alone in the marshes. But little can prepare him for the solitude of the house itself as he is kept from his guardian and finds himself spending the Christmas holiday wandering the silent corridors of the house seeking distraction. But lonely doesn't mean alone, as Michael soon realises that the house and its grounds harbour many secrets, dead and alive, and Michael is set the task of unravelling some of the darkest secrets of all. This is a nail-biting story of hauntings and terror by the master of the genre, Chris Priestley
