      I am guilty of reading the title as "House of Furries." Whoops

    2. Elise (TheBookishActress) on said:

      I have a story about this book. I wasn't really interested in reading this. One of my friends, however, loves the author's debut, Asylum. So when I was offered an out-of-date arc of this, I happily passed it on to her. Half the pages were bent over at the back and glued into the spine.I am not exaggerating when I say they were glued into the very fabric of the spine. When we tried to tear them out, they wouldn't come. We got scissors and tried to hack away at the spine of the book, causing a flu [...]

      (I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)“They come here because they are evil. Irredeemable. They come here to die.”This was a YA horror story about a house where evil people were drawn to die.Louisa was quite a strong character and she stuck things out at Coldthistle House to try and help Lee, and even though she was afraid. The storyline in this was about Louisa being tricked into going to Coldthistle House to become a maid, and finding out [...]

    4. Iryna (Book and Sword) on said:

      2.5/5 stars (round down)I picked up this book at a library on a whim - only because the page design and illustrations inside of it caught my eye. I am saddened to tell you that the illustrations remained to be the best thing about this book. Because the book itself was very meh. ​It is not a bad book per say, it's just - useless? 400 pages of no apparent plot and no satisfactory ending. Apparently it will be a series (which I didn't know) so the book never actually ended, but rather created an [...]

      My first book by Madeleine Roux was such a delight! I love horror books and I really enjoy young adult literature, therefore, when these two come together I'm always eager to see the result. In this one, we follow a girl named Louisa who is living by herself on the streets. However, one day, a strange woman approaches her and asks her if she's interested in taking a job at a guest house known as Coldthistle House.This house has a great secret though: whoever becomes a guest of this place, will b [...]

    6. Melanie (TBR and Beyond) on said:

      This was a slower-paced book but I really enjoyed it all the same. It's not very scary but does have some gore in it. This is basically a paranormal/gothic horror YA novel. I thought it had a really interesting premise and a strong start. I didn't realize this was going to be a series but I'm glad it is, lots of potential here. Full review to come soon.

      3 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2017/08/19/House of Furies opens with an introduction Louisa Ditton, a seventeen-year-old girl who accepts a maid position at a boarding house in order to escape a harsh life on the streets. Shortly after her arrival at her new job though, Louisa begins to realize with growing dread that there’s something seriously wrong with Coldthistle House. As it turns out, guests who come to stay within its walls are judged for their past crimes, with harsh [...]

      Do you ever look at the empty review box and just realize you have nothing to say? Like the book was nice, and it entertained you, but there's just no where to go from that? that's me with this book.As I said, it was good, I enjoyed it, and it did what it was supposed to do, which was entertain me. I was captivated, I always wanted to continue reading, I was curious what was going to happen, and I found the setting eerie and mysterious. I love anything gothic and I just really enjoyed it. My one [...]

    9. Kassandra Patti on said:

      This book was great. It had me hook from start to finish. I have read the Asylum novels and I saw this book and just had to buy it. No looking at reviews, no reading of the description and it went really well. Very little times I've done that and it works out but Roux is an amazing author with a vision for the crazy (in a good way of course). The book was amazing I loved the whole theme of it and I can't wait for more of her novels.

    10. Allison on said:

      Never read Roux's first series but I ended up really enjoying this! Love paranormal Gothic stuff and this hit the spot.RTC.

    11. Diego Sanchez on said:

      This book belongs to one of the contemporary authors I like the most, which is Madeleine Roux, the creator of Asylum. I totally felt in love with those books, but I was really skeptical about this one, because I didn’t feel this book to cause fear when I read the synopsis, but here are my complete thoughts:-Plot/Development: The story tells about Louisa Ditton, who suddenly get into the “House of Furies”, a place where a lot of people with secret backgrounds, share relations and house serv [...]

    12. Trisha on said:

      "Are you a miracle, little Louisa, or are you a curse?"I was surprised by how much I liked this one. Honestly, I've had bad luck with books lately so I was ready to hate this one. Imagine my surprise when the cover, dark and lonely feeling, matched the insides of the story. It IS dark. It's dark and ugly and definitely shows the evil side of people.It starts off with a bag - she is living with the devil and she can't leave. And the story goes off from there. The addition of the lore and creepy d [...]

    13. Trish Isiderio on said:

      Where do I start?The book started out great; it was alluring, and mysterious, and I thoroughly enjoyed the diverse characters that were gradually introduced. And I especially loved that Medeleine Roux incorporated parts of Mr. Morningside's journal into the chapters. It was creative and made the story feel more alive. But for me, that's all that was good about it. The story progressed in inconsistent bouts of sluggishness and lightning fast. One moment, nothing of any particular interest is happ [...]

    14. Muggleboooks on said:

      I was fortunate enough that I got approved on being provided an ARC of one of my most anticipated reads this year. Thank you so much HarperCollins International!Madeleine Roux has always been my favorite author when it comes to Horror novels, so I was beyond ecstatic when I heard about House of Furies. Good thing my expectations were met! As always, Roux is full of surprises.I started reading this book in the midst of the night, and it was seriously spooky. Even reading this in broad daylight st [...]

    15. Ann (Little Bear) Baratheon on said:

      Might bump this up to 4 starswill let it soak in before I write my review. The ending was rather disappointing and anti-climatic.

    16. Nicole Alycia on said:

      Madeleine Roux is definitely becoming one of my new favorite authors! I absolutely adored her Asylum series so when I heard she had a new book coming out I was so excited to read it and it was so fantastic!I love the old setting of the book, it made it all the more spooky and mysterious! Louisa was such a great character I loved how skeptical she was of everything because it made the story all that more believable. She needed to see things with her own eyes and she was curious and strong she was [...]

    17. Dal on said:

      YES. La única crítica es quele falta un toque en la escritura para que parezca de época, pero igual me encantó

    18. Nidofito on said:

      Really intriguing setup and story that was a solid all the way through except for the ending. I really enjoyed Louisa's character and all the side characters, but I would definitely appreciate knowing more about them and the boarding house in the sequel. They are still in the introductory state in this book and I would like a more fleshed-out approach to them in the sequel.I would've given the book 3 stars had it not been so interesting. Roux is definitely on my radar now.

    19. Mandy on said:

      This book was literally such a physically beautiful book, but I just couldn't connect to anythinggggg besides how much I loved the look and feeling of the book. It was just so slow paced and even when something happened I was like meh. Nothing really to review since I'm so eh about it. Gorgeous, gorgeous book, though, and I definitely haven't given up in Roux's writing.

    20. Book Swoon on said:

      Delightful and Creepy, House of Furies is the first book in Madeleine Roux’s new gothic horror series filled with a spine-tingling mystery and plenty of twists.I love it when an author brings a setting to life and that is exactly what Roux does with House of Furies. Set in 1800’s in Northern England, Coldthistle House, a manor for the wayward and the lost, hosts strange guests, employees, and a mysterious owner - nothing is as it first seems. Coldthistle House is delightfully weird and sinis [...]

    21. Anna on said:

      2.5 stars?Meh. I don't know. When I saw this at my local bookstore, it sounded so perfect and I had to buy it immediately. The first half of the book surpassed my expectations and I had a great time reading it alone in the dark as in the good old days when everything remotely creepy felt like a terrifying horror novel. However, the rest of it was just boring and I had to try too hard to stay awake. Even though I usually love the paranormal genre and it's one of my favorites, this book would have [...]

    22. Elizabeth on said:

      3.7*This book has a lot going for it. It was wonderfully executed and kept me hooked practically the whole time. First off, it has an awesome premise (evil people compelled to travel to Coldthistle House to die…) and the supernatural elements were very entertaining and the unique spin on the devil really kept me interested. Another thing I liked were the characters. I liked unpacking Morningside’s character. He had a whole lot of mystery to him. However, the short excerpts from Morningside [...]

      4.5Bienvenido a la mansión Coldthistle House, el tenebroso lugar en el que se ambiente la nueva y esperada novela de Madeleine Roux, del cual una vez que ingreses no lo podrás abandonar.Louisa es la joven protagonista de esta nueva saga, una chica un tanto especial y que nunca ha logrado encajar en el mundo ordinario, ya que desde que tiene memoria puede ver cosas que la gente común no logra apreciar. Cuando era pequeña fue enviada muy lejos de su hogar a un internado del cual tiempo despué [...]

      >>>COVER BUY<<<And the illustrations inside are gorgeousbut that's it. That's all my love for this book.I'm disappointed that the story is not as scary/creepy as I expected.The placing of the vintage photos seem to be all over the place--unlike Ransom Riggs' Miss Peregrine--and doesn't help me get into the eerie atmosphere of the book better. I don't think they contribute much to the story.At first I was hoping this is just a standalone book, but I'm so wrong LOLThe sequel will [...]

    25. Emmanuel Chavez on said:

      ¿Por qué no había leído a Madeleine antes? Me encanta la forma en que escribe y sin duda me encanta la historia que ha creado en La mansión de las furias. Espero con ansias la segunda parte.

    26. Hayley on said:

      I LOVED this book! This story is a great mix of horror, history, and suspense and I loved how it included folklore. Can't wait for the next one!

    27. Kai VanderBerg on said:

      I love this book and I absolutely hate that the 2nd book isn't already available like DO I DO THE WAITING THING???????
