I'm loving my half seven sleep ins on my days off,they leave me feeling proper adult and with more time to productive-- the catch is sometimes the word productive is replaced by anxiety, other times we play the is it endo or ibs pain game... alas this is my life and I am doing so much better than I was. I'm learning to manage and my nsaid intake has curbed dramatically lately so happy times ahead... 💊🎉 .

Zuletzt gelesen/gehört. ~ #himmelstal von #mariehermanson hat mir zwar nicht so gut gefallen wie ihr Werk #derunsichtbaregast aber die Atmosphäre in ihren Büchern erinnert mich immer irgendwie an die Romane von #shirleyjackson. Toll. ~ #gretchen von #chelseacain ist der 3. Band der Reihe rund um #archiesheridan und #gretchenlowell. Eine Thrillerreihe, die wunderbar perfide ist. ~ Kennt ihr die Bücher?

1963 edition of Shirley Jackson's "We Have Always Lived in the Castle" just arrived in the mail for me!! I first fell in love with the artwork on the cover when I saw an adaptation of it used for the 1977 Italian horror film, Shock (starring Daria Nicolodi) 📽️ I later found out the illustration was done by William Teason & was originally used as cover art for this 1963 edition. It is my absolute favorite book cover, haunting yet feminine..and I'm the happiest bunny now that I have this in my collection!!

I read Gwendy's Button Box (book #29) in an hour and a half!! It wasn't scary until the end, but was a real page turner. This is book 30 for the year: The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. I think Chloe approves. 😀 Don't think I will try to read this at bedtime either because y'all know I am a big ole 🐔. I am five books away from the halfway mark for my reading goal for the year!! #readallthethings📚 #bookstagrammer #writerswhoread #shirleyjackson #hauntingofhillhouse #mycatlikestoread

Here's my latest addition to my graphic novel collection. This is one of my favorites from Shirley Jackson. It's so disturbing and unforgettable. When I found out that there was an authorized graphic novel, I knew I had to own it. Plus found it gently used for a Great deal!😊#amazon #shirleyjackson #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #booklove #booknerd #graphicnovels

I have always loved to use fear, to take it and comprehend it and make it work and consolidate a situation where I was afraid and take it whole and work from there.

Currently listening to Shirley Jackson, and I am already loving it! Has anyone read her work?

#TB to the student commuter life, waiting on trains, getting a lot more reading done than I currently am! In fairness, it's much easier to motivate yourself when you're obligated to read three books a week...

This was one of my favourite books of my final year of university 📚 the author said that he intended it to be a postmodern retelling of the possession narrative (i.e. The Exorcist and its endless spin offs). That sounds very pretentious, but if you like the kind of story that leaves you with mild PTSD, then A Head Full of Ghosts is for you! ☺️

If you're already a horror fan, you'll eat this one up because of how self-aware it is. Paul Tremblay knows you know all the authors he's drawing from - and not just Blatty, but also Shirley Jackson, Charlotte Perkins-Gilman, and many more! It's a statement on the genre itself, and it certainly makes your head spin (and yes, that was a completely intentional Exorcism pun)

"The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love colour the most."
----------
These books are not only TBR but also TBC, that is to be considered! I move books into high priority stacks to consider them as my next reads. I am such a mood-driven reader that another one often jumps the queue, like my current fabulous and almost finished read, Away by Jane Urquhart; so grateful to my dear friends who encouraged me to pick this up - you know who you are😘.
Which from this stack, if my mood allows, should I read next?
----------
Today I bought a different colour of flowers. I usually buy yellow flowers - my happy colour. Today I bought this dark red variety. It's quite sombre and moody I think. Do you feel that different colours express or represent different emotions?
Happy Floral Friday.

Siren Yayınları (@sirenkitap)

Kimi kitapları anlatmak, gördüğünüz bir rüyayı anlatmaya benzer ve ustalık ister - Shirley Jackson'ın edebiyatı da, adeta rüya düzleminde yer alıyor ve bizlere, onun kabuslarına sızma fırsatı tanıyor. Yankı Enki, dün yayımlanan Cumhuriyet Kitap'taki geniş yazısında, Tepedeki Ev ile Biz Hep Şatoda Yaşadık romanlarını müthiş bir ustalıkla ele almış ve Jackson'ın karabasanlarının ortak motifine, aileye değinerek şöyle demiş: "Shirley Jackson'ın her iki romanında da aile, bir harabedir." Bu güçlü sesle henüz tanışmadıysanız, Biz Hep Şatoda Yaşadık ile başlamanızı öneririz. Temennimiz: Enkazlardan fışkıran yabani otları seviniz 🍃
