Mind of Winter By Laura Kasischke

Description: On a snowy Christmas morning, Holly Judge awakens with the fragments of a nightmare floating on the edge of her consciousness. Something followed them from Russia. Thirteen years ago, she and her husband Eric adopted baby Tatty, their pretty, black-haired Rapunzel, from the Pokrovka Orphanage #2. Now, at fifteen, Tatiana is more beautiful than ever—and disturbingly erratic.

As a blizzard rages outside, Holly and Tatiana are alone. With each passing hour, Tatiana’s mood darkens, and her behavior becomes increasingly frightening, until Holly finds she no longer recognizes her daughter.

This book kinda reminds me of the movie Orphan, when a girl poses as a young orphan to get adopted, when she’s actually a full-grown conniving individual. It’s dark and twisted, making you question what exactly is wrong with the daughter and what will happen while they’re stuck inside during the blizzard.

Rooms by Lauren Oliver

Description: 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.

This book is more ghost and sci-fi focused rather than a thriller, however, it intrigues me and reminds me of the first American Horror Story series, with ghosts coming in and out of the light, haunting the living and revealing secrets about the dead.

I love that BookCase.Club opens my eyes to new authors that I may not have known of previously. I can go through a book per week with my hour-long commute back and forth to the city each day.
