Wishlist Wednesday #1

Wishlist Wednesday is a book blog hop hosted by Pen to Paper

Synopsis from Lauren Oliver's website: "Lauren Oliver makes her adult debut with this mesmerizing story in a tale of family, ghosts, secrets, and mystery, in which the lives of the living and the dead intersect in shocking, surprising, and moving ways.
Wealthy Richard Walker has just died, leaving behind his country house full of rooms packed with the detritus of a lifetime. His estranged family—bitter ex-wife Caroline, troubled teenage son Trenton, and unforgiving daughter Minna—have arrived for their inheritance.
But the Walkers are not alone. Prim Alice and the cynical Sandra, long dead former residents bound to the house, linger within its claustrophobic walls. Jostling for space, memory, and supremacy, they observe the family, trading barbs and reminiscences about their past lives. Though their voices cannot be heard, Alice and Sandra speak through the house itself—in the hiss of the radiator, a creak in the stairs, the dimming of a light bulb.
The living and dead are each haunted by painful truths that will soon surface with explosive force. When a new ghost appears, and Trenton begins to communicate with her, the spirit and human worlds collide—with cataclysmic results."

I confess, I've never actually read anything by Lauren Oliver... yet. And while I have a low tolerance for creepy things, I think this book looks good enough for me to put that aside! I just need to find a stretch of time when I know I won't be house sitting for a while, so I'll at least have the comfort of staying in my own bed while I read potentially scary things! I know a lot of people are reading it now, so I'm curious to see what everybody has to say!
