Read House of Ash Online Free - After hearing voices among an eerie copse of trees in the woods, seventeen-year-old Curtis must confront his worst fear: that he has inherited his father’s mental illness. A desperate search for answers leads him to discover Gravenhearst, a labyrinth mansion that burned down in 1894. When he locks eyes with a steely Victorian girl in a forgotten mirror, he’s sure she’s one of the fire’s victims. If he can unravel the mystery, he can save his sanity . . . and possibly the girl who haunts his dreams.
But more than 100 years in the past, the girl in the mirror is fighting her own battles. When her mother disappears and her sinister stepfather reveals his true intentions, Mila and her sister fight to escape Gravenhearst and unravel the house’s secrets—before it devours them both.

I was really exited to read this book, and thrilled that I got an ARC, because it sounded so interesting. But in the end, it took a turn for the worst and I was left feeling quite bored and disappointed.
Within the first few chapters I was rather confused, not too fond of the writing, an...

I received this for review through Amulet Books and NetGalley. Thanks to them for letting me review an early copy. Looking at the cover, I was expecting a middle grade, haunted house story, but I was so, so wrong. First off, it's YA, and it deals with some heavy topics. I think the cover doesn't...

This was another perfectly autumnal read I had been saving for the increasingly dark evenings. The haunting atmosphere this creates, the physical look of the book, and the events that play out inside it all combined to make this the ideal addition to my October reading list.
This is a split-protag...

House of Ash was a difficult one for me to review. On one hand I loved the idea behind it and the gothic atmosphere, but on the other I felt that the delivery of that fell a little flat.
The story switches POV's between Curtis in the current day who begins hearing voices at the site of a gothic ma...

I came across Cook’s debut book and it had such a curious premise I found myself wanting to know more. Then I discovered she used her own personal experiences as fodder for her book so it increased my desire to read it because I have found books where the author has poured something of their own...

Probably more like three and a half stars.
I was so hyped to read it, but I wasn't too happy with it in the end.
I really wished there could have been more elaboration on the backstory of Gravenhearst, the 'House of Ash' and the curse put upon it, as it was presented kind of like: "Magic house. De...
