The Haunting of Hill House | Shirley Jackson
post image

Started the #audiobook for haunting of hill house for #halfbloodbingo with @jmtrivera and friends for the category a book that's been adapted for the screen. I loved the Netflix series so I wanted to read the source material. Interesting so far, but I must confess at this point in my reading, I liked the show better. Thoughts? #amreadinghorror #shirleyjackson #classichorror

Wow, what a book. Although I already figured who the murderer of the Blackwood family was, I was quite surprised how the story ended. 😱
And I just realized, there‘s a movie too. 🤗

Same procedure as every Friday. A decent coffee (hard to find in Egypt), breakfast and a good read. I found this novel in my kindle library, can‘t remember why I bought it, but it‘s pretty good so far - still couldn‘t figure out who poisened the family, Caroline or Mary Katherine...

My local library has gotten a few graphic novelizations of classics lately, and this seemed a great way to revisit an old classic in a new way. It still holds the ominous buildup of the original, and the graphics done by Jackson‘s grandson work great with the original story.

@TheReadingMermaid
I think this book counts as on theme, without giving any specifics as spoilers.

I loved the inner forward with insight into Shirley‘s life.

JazzFeathers I've heard this is one of her best short stories. 2mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @JazzFeathers I originally read it in high school, and I still remember it. It stuck with me. 2mo

Life among the Savages | Shirley Jackson

This was my follow-up read to Hill House. I loved reading about SJ raising kids in rural Vermont in the 40s and 50s. I was surprised by how relatable I found it, raising my own kids 60 years later and in a new century-and of course, some things are very different-10 days in the hospital after a normal uncomplicated birth?! (And the reason, per SJ, why some opted for baby #3- all that uninterrupted rest! 😂) I ordered the sequel, Raising Demons.

Katja I loved this book so much. I couldn‘t stop laughing 😂 2mo
Lola @Katja What a talented writer! She can scare the s!$t out of you with one book and make you pee your pants with another. This is just so good! 2mo
Lcsmcat I need to read this! 2mo
Lola @Lcsmcat You do! It‘s a fun quick read. I‘m looking to forward to reading the sequel, which picks up right where this one leaves off 2mo

1. The Library of Lost and Found 😍; Uprooted (re-read for gothic book club); Carry On... which I might bail on soon 🤷🏽‍♀️
2. Fangirl!!!! (Which makes it weird that I might bail on Carry On...)
3. Hangsaman (Shirley Jackson)

Raising Demons | Shirley Jackson

Here are my planned reads for #24b4monday this weekend! I‘m taking a sick day today because my husband gave me his gnarly cold, so now I have nothing planned but lots of reading and drinking lots of tea (and okay, probably a fair amount of napping!). I have the tagged book and Dinosaurs in progress, then a reread of Fangirl because of all my Simon and Baz feelings, and then hopefully getting to this recent YA release. 🤞🏻

LiteraryinLititz Sounds like some good medicine! Hope you feel better soon and get in some great reading time. 3mo
AmyG Feel better. 3mo
