We have always lived in the castle.
.
Para Mary Katherine Blackwood los martes y viernes eran días horribles, ya que eran los días en los que tenía que ir al pueblo. Un lugar repleto de gente gris, triste y lamentable que se reía de ella y hablaba a sus espaldas. Y es que aunque algunos de ellos lo intentaran disimular, ella lo sabía. Siempre había sido así desde aquellas muertes. Merricat lo sabía, y los odiaba por ello.

Con este original libro, la autora se atrevió a recordar o enseñarnos lo peor que puede dejar de si la comunidad, y a sumergirnos en lo que podría significar el aislamiento para quien así lo necesita. Todo ello bajo la narración y el peculiar enfoque de su carismática protagonista, capaz de conseguir que la repetición y el día a día pueda parecer un cuento o una aventura, y el traumático pasado pueda resultar una macabra comedia.

Una obra estupenda y muy interesante, donde hay lugar para la intriga, el odio y la angustia, e incluso el humor negro.

Puntuación: 4.5/5.

Three readathons back-to-back? Yes please. Here's my #tbr for all of them. For the #cosyreadingnight tonight I plan on reading The Luminaries, for #deweys24hourreadathon that starts tomorrow I'll hopefully manage a good chunk of One of us is lying, and for the #autumnreadathon starting on Sunday and lasting until next Saturday, I plan on reading The Haunting of Hill House for the prompt read a spooky/gothic book, The other world it whispers for the prompt read a short story collection, and to keep on reading The Luminaries for the historical novel prompt. Happy reading to anyone participating! :)

Day 20 #circleofbookishfriends Hosted by @sadie_reads_them_all @ab_reads @jobis89 Last day for Jo’s prompts. Yesterday was Ghosts/Paranormal and today is Haunted Houses. . . . . . . . I was absent this last week. I had a ton going on and I wasn’t able to post as much but I am enjoying seeing everyone’s recommendations! My TBR list has grown immensely as a result. And I’m sure it will continue to grow next week! 😅 Here is Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting Of Hillhouse. I love this cover! It just reminds me of Halloween and trick or treating so I paired it up with a vintage inspired candy container that I recently made and painted. I have yet to read this one. I know, I know. What’s wrong with me? 🤦🏻‍♂️ But I will! Very soon!! Once I get my new glasses, I’ll be reading a lot more again. Yay 😀 #halloween #trickortreat #vintagehalloween #vintagehalloweendecorations #vintagehalloweencat #shirleyjackson #thehauntingofhillhouse #books #read #readmore #booknerd #booknerdigans #booknerdigan #bibliophile #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #hauntedhouse #paranormal #paranormalreads #bookstagramphotochallenge #instagramphotochallenge #thrillers #horror #horrornovels #classicnovel #ghoststories

Day 20 of #grimdragon - Things That Go Bump in the Night! Books at Night 🌃 .
You've got to be careful at nighttime. There could be all sorts of shadows and spirits hanging around... reaching out.
.
👻 There were certainly a lot of bumps in the night at Hill House. 💀 .
TGIF 🙌 Hope everyone has a fun weekend. 😀

Carrie Dudewicz's Book Reviews (@litsnapshots)

If I were going to graduate school, I would write about Shirley Jackson. This woman is an absolute genius, and it's a huge shame more people aren't aware of her. New life goal: tell everyone to read Ms. Jackson. WE HAVE ALWAYS LIVED IN THE CASTLE, like all of Jackson's work, is perfect reading for crisp fall days. It's engaging, creepy, expertly crafted, and full of beautifully nuanced dialogue spoken by wonderfully complex characters. I've never been disappointed by Shirley Jackson and I doubt I ever will be. Her new biography is on my TBR stack, so look for a review of that within the next couple of months. But until then: read Shirley Jackson!

Per i prossimi cinque giorni in vista di Halloween pubblicherò cinque consigli libreschi creepy adattissimi a questo periodo per chi, come me, ama le letture a tema! 🎃
il primo libro che vi mostro è “abbiamo sempre vissuto nel castello” di Shirley Jackson.
personalmente ho amato lo stile di questa autrice che, manco a dirlo, è stata musa ispiratrice di scrittori del calibro di Stephen King: dalle tinte dark e misteriose, questo per me è un vero e proprio must del periodo e adattissimo ad essere letto la notte di Halloween, anche perchè lo si legge davvero in un soffio. ☝🏻
.
voi lo avete letto? vi è piaciuto?

Johann 💖 Stephen King Nerd 🤓 (@jobis89)

One of my favourite haunted house tales and it’s relatively new to me! I only read this earlier in the year and thought it was brilliant! I can see why so many think of Shirley Jackson as one of the best horror writers 😈
.
And a perfect opportunity to show off my Penguin horror edition 😍 thanks to @bookishsteph1 for making me NEED THEM ALL. I decided I was only gonna buy 3 out of the 6 for now, but then my mum offered to get the rest for me because she’s the literal best 🖤 My mum also made this salted caramel mocha latte for me... again, cos she’s the best.
.
If anyone has any other suggestions for haunted house tales, I’m all ears! 👻
.
And so ends my prompts for this month’s #circleofbookishfriends - thanks for having me, Sadie 🖤 @sadie_reads_them_all - and thanks for all the recommendations, guys! Although my bank account does not thank you 🙈😂

Here's our staffer Danielle's pick for spookiest book! Happy Halloween month! #bookmarkhalifax #halloween #shirleyjackson #shoplocal

When you say ‘haunted house’, surely Hill House is the first thing that comes to your mind? 👻 I read this book last October and it’s the perfect spooky read for Halloween if you haven’t read it already!

Thanks to my mam’s garden for providing this pretty cool shot 😏
