Hello, friends! So in celebration of the wonderful month of October, a couple of booktubers and I are hosting a read-along for the book Asylum by Madeleine Roux.
There is probably going to be a small hangout/liveshow with Keiter, Nimi, Sabrina, Sam and myself once everyone gets a chance to finish. If you’re down for this, I recommend you keep up with the goodreads group and share your thoughts as you’re reading. I’ve never participated in one of these before so I think the experience will be fun. It’s like when you watch a movie with a group of friends, except, we’re reading a book together instead. I’m super stoked.
The synopsis of the book via Goodreads is below
For sixteen-year-old Dan Crawford, New Hampshire College Prep is more than a summer program—it’s a lifeline. An outcast at his high school, Dan is excited to finally make some friends in his last summer before college. But when he arrives at the program, Dan learns that his dorm for the summer used to be a sanatorium, more commonly known as an asylum. And not just any asylum—a last resort for the criminally insane.
As Dan and his new friends, Abby and Jordan, explore the hidden recesses of their creepy summer home, they soon discover it’s no coincidence that the three of them ended up here. Because the asylum holds the key to a terrifying past. And there are some secrets that refuse to stay buried.
Featuring found photos of unsettling history and real abandoned asylums and filled with chilling mystery and page-turning suspense, Madeleine Roux’s teen debut, Asylum, is a horror story that treads the line between genius and insanity.
So, yes. I hope some of you decide to read this with us. If you want to check out these lovely tubers and their wonderful channels, their links are below:
