The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson –Review

The classic supernatural thriller by an author who helped define the genre. First published in 1959, Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House has been hailed as a perfect work of unnerving terror. It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar… Continue reading The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson –Review

The Dangers of Book Blogging #382

Getting annoyed because the New Microsoft Word  helpfully informs me to be more concise in my writing-- constantly. I understand this would be helpful for scholarly and academic writing, but this is a book blog; I don’t need this computer sass.  I need to be succinct in my writing for classes, I so I like… Continue reading The Dangers of Book Blogging #382

Scheduling blog posts weeks in advance and feeling really good about putting out consistent scheduling! Then once the post is published and you start to get comments on the post realising you have completely forgotten the topic of the post, and promptly go to read your own writing to figure out what you said.  … Continue reading The Dangers of Book Blogging #0004

Dark Tales by Shirley Jackson–Review

There's something nasty in suburbia. In these deliciously dark tales, the daily commute turns into a nightmarish game of hide and seek, the loving wife hides homicidal thoughts and the concerned citizen might just be an infamous serial killer. In the haunting world of Shirley Jackson, nothing is as it seems and nowhere is safe,… Continue reading Dark Tales by Shirley Jackson–Review

Collecting a strange box of book-ish props for your photos. I have way too many fake flowers, tiny pumpkin decorations, fabric backgrounds, paper flowers, and old book pages all collected together, it’s a lot. And it is far too easy to justify buying more.   Please let me know if you think this series is… Continue reading The Dangers of Book Blogging #32129

Your neighbors seeing you taking odd photos of books, coffee and pumpkins in your ground level window. I'm normally taking pictures from above, while standing on my bed. So, I'm sure it looks...interesting! I’ve gotten a few looks, but that’s fine-- I've just moved out today😊   I imagine it won't be long until my… Continue reading The Dangers of Book Blogging #2121
