I didn't know that #PenguinBooks had this deluxe editions. 🤔
I found this in a bookshop in #Salamanca. This is why I love going to bokshops with secondhand books and just look around, you never know what you can find. 🌟 🤗

#ColorMePretty #White
Didn‘t realise I don‘t have many white books at all! Love the movie adaptation of Breakfast At Tiffany‘s too much I‘m scared to read the book since it‘s not exactly the same and I‘m afraid I will end up not liking Holly Golightly from the movie 🙈 But one day, I will be brave enough to read it! 😅

Penguin Classics always have the best collection and most gorgeous edition. I love these with their #frenchflap & deckle edges & the cover arts by artist Eric Nyquist.

In case you‘re wondering, this is the book I brought home (from the Street Library). Never seen this edition before! It has all my 3 of my favorite #Horror #Classics in one! And an intro by #StephenKing ?! 😱 Going to reread one of the stories in October for Halloween 🎃
Do you like any of these? Which one would you read?

The Haunting of Hill House | Shirley Jackson
post image

Sorry I'm a bit late, but Happy Halloween🎃 What a great book! Love her minimalistic style in writing yet the way she wrote about each characters, such details! It's not a scary tale that would give you nightmare like some of Stephen King's books do, but it definitely spooky in a phycological way. And about that ending....Did you see that coming? 5🌟

DivineDiana I did not!!! 😲 1y
BooknerdsLife @DivineDiana Me neither!!!! 😱 It took me by surprise!🙈 1y
SqueakyChu CAUTION: SPOILERS AHEAD: I thought she was going to commit suicide in the tower. I didn‘t see the ending coming, but it didn‘t surprise me. (edited) 1y

BooknerdsLife @SqueakyChu IKR! Like that girl who hanged herself!? ...I didn't think she would kill herself off like that at all!!! 1y
SqueakyChu @BooknerdsLife Why do you think@she wanted to climb to the top of the turret? 1y
SqueakyChu @BooknerdsLife I was expecting such an ending because she had become “family” with the occupants of the house, even made herself into the house‘s story with her fantasies. I didn‘t think she could survive without the house. This might be a good book to reread in the future to look for more details. I didn‘t realize how great a psychological horror story this was until I started to reflect back on it. (edited) 1y
BooknerdsLife @SqueakyChu I did expect something to happen to her and I love the "process" of how she's becoming attached to the house but I didn't expect the story to end this way, the story stops a little too short for me. But I totally agree with you, this book needs a reread there are so many details I'd live to go back and explore again (now that I know how it's going to end) 1y
SqueakyChu @BooknerdsLife Have you read We Have Always Lived in the Castle? That‘s a fun read by Shirley Jackson as well. (edited) 1y
BooknerdsLife @SqueakyChu Yes I read that last year & it was my first Shirley Jackson book, loved it very much that I've decided to read Haunting of Hill House. 1y
BooknerdsLife @SqueakyChu Love her writing! I need to read more of her books! Do you have any recommendations? 🤗 1y
BooknerdsLife @Jee_HookedOnBookz Oh I did! And Love it very much!!! That's why I read The Haunting of Hill House 😍 What a genius! 1y
Jee_HookedOnBookz @BooknerdsLife I definitely have to read the Haunting of Hill House then! I love the way she writes! 1y
SqueakyChu @BooknerdsLife Those were the only two books of hers I‘ve read. 1y

Sharp Objects: A Novel | Gillian Flynn

Only thing that makes me happier than getting new books are getting good condition 2nd hand books 😆 Found these two gems at a charity shop & got them both for only AU$5. Can't wait to read Sharp Objects!
Anyone else like Second-hand books hunting?

Sometimes you need a secret garden of roses and quiet to retreat to with a book. I'm hoping @Litsy is that safe haven. I've just finished The Game of Kings by Dorothy Dunnett and am now scouring every blog and online forum in order to decipher all its clues and mysteries 🖤

What are you reading?
