A #bookishpairing featuring three of my favourite authors and three of my favourite fragrances. 🐞
🐞
All three books are part of my massive January haul - which is so large that I am sure the postman is sure I have a clandestine library at home , which I do not ... not yet... A girl can dream. 🐞
🐞
I have not read these books yet, but have tremendously high expectations because they all are written by authors who will leave libraries and people so much richer, by having dared to put their imaginations in words and paper. 🐞
🐞
#TheHauntingofHillHouse by #ShirleyJackson with #ChanelNo5LEau by #Chanel : 🐞
🐞
This fragrance smells like the perfect neutral outift of slacks and a sweater with a Lolita-esque bow in your hair. It smells like I imagine Constance Blackwood would smell when shes not cooking for her sister Merricat, and is hiding in her crumbing castle.
🐞
#TheHauntingofHillHouse is a #book about an investigation conducted during a summer in a mysterious haunted house. 🐞
🐞
#TheSenseofanEnding by #JulianBarnes with #ContreMoi by #Louis Vuitton: 🐞
#ContreMoi has to be my undisputed favourite perfume at the moment. To me it smells like vanilla, pages of fresh paper and cacao beans. It is envelopping like a cocoon and so very elegant you only need some to be fully dressed. It is as comforting as #TheCorrs 's #BringOnTheNight song. 🐞
Which is why I think it would go well with one of the most refined authors of our time : #JulianBarnes and his book on mortality, friendship and love : #TheSenseofanEnding. 🐞
🐞
#TheGirlwhowasSaturdayNight by #HeatherONeill with #NeroliPortofinoForte by #TomFord: 🐞
#NeroliPortofino is by definition a #coolgirl fragrance. I was introduced to this version and received it for Christmas, by one of the coolest women alive:  @monika_dero. As a #fragrance it brings new meaning to citrus and clean white linen. 🐞
It makes sense it would go with a book written by one of the coolest authors. A young Canadian by the name of Heather O'Neill. She has written a coming of age story about two supermodelesque twins. 🐞

Spent the night in UK’s most haunted hotel, location for 1963 classic The Haunting. Ghosts kept setting off fire alarm! Inconsiderate ghosts 🤪 #thehaunting #thehauntingofhillhouse #ettingtonparkhotel #haunted #ghosts
These are my favorite standalones from the last few months! They are all such good reads. I wonder if there's ever going to be a sequel for Little Fires Everywhere - I feel like it was left open-ended enough that there COULD be a sequel, but it was still finalized enough that it would be perfectly fine without a follow-up. I can't really see anything else in this stack getting a sequel - except MAYBE Need to Know. .

I’ve just finished The Haunting at Hill House and honestly? I was disappointed! There was no great big final conclusion, nor any real spookiness to it!

Fy vilken otäck bok! Obehaglig och ruskig så jag ibland tänkte sluta läsa den. Hemsökelsen på Hill House av Shirley Jackson är en skräckklassiker. Tidigare har jag läst Vi har alltid bott på slottet den tyckte jag bättre om men Hemsökelsen på Hill House är otäckare/ Alicia #skräck #hemsökelsenpåhillhouse #thehauntingofhillhouse #shirleyjackson #viharalltidbottpåslottet #wehavealwayslivedinthecastle #böcker

I’m incredibly excited to read this! Plus I’m now on a book buying ban for quite a while 😂😂 #thehauntingofhillhouse #shirleyjackson #horror #bookstagram #bookmail #bookworm #ilovebooks
Finally, #thehauntingofhillhouse by #shirleyjackson was some truly dark shit and I LOVED it. Picked this one up from a full Jackson display at Foyles in London in the Charing Cross Road, which was enormous and well lit and kind of echoey.

Dr. John Montague is a scholar researching on supernatural phenomenons and is about to publish a book based on the research. There’s a renowned haunted house named Hill House, and he invited people to help him in finishing the research and the book, then come Eleanor Vance, Theodora, and Luke (The heir of the house). The four of them stayed for days and the house, with its dreary and grim past, started to do its magic on them.
.
I was actually drawn to the book because people were citing and highly praise it, including Stephen King (as written in his Danse Macabre). Goodreads reviewer dubbed this as an exemplar for today’s horror. Also said that the book will give you a sense of terror rather than horror.
.
Which is true, for the most part. I didn’t actually feel full goosebumps or some shivers on my spine, but indeed, there were parts that even reading in the broad daylight made me shivered. The ending was quite a meh for me, I was expecting something grandeur but instead the otherwise I get.
.
But then I saw the explanation in Wikipedia that the book is open to interpretation, which is interesting and true. The haunting was never explained whether it was caused by an otherworldly entity or a psychokinetic abilities or whatnot.
.
But I would recommend this. Really. It was a short read but the characters were well-developed to a degree that I care about them, and disliked the haughty wife of the doctor. Which is a good sign of great writing. I might continue reading her other works such as (recommended) We Have Always Lived In This Castle.

#lacasainfernal #hellhouse es una película de terror y misterio basada en un libro de #richardmatheson , quien también escribió el guión. Con más de un nexo de unión con #thehauntingofhillhouse , se centra más en el terror sicológico que en los sustos y el efectismo, que también hay.

Destaca una expresiva fotografía, que juega mucho con la profundidad de campo y con desubicar espacialmente al espectador, especialmente en los exteriores. La banda sonora, electrónica, es una de las pioneras en su campo, pero resulta tremendamente fallida.

La dirección, de #johnhough es acertada y mantiene el interés. Así como las interpretaciones, en especial la de un estupendo #roddymcdowall , simplemente perfecto.

No me convence la casa en sí, eso es, el diseño de producción. Para ser una casa construida en 1919 su aspecto es mucho más antiguo y no es especialmente bello o interesante. La capilla, por ejemplo, que debería ser inquietante, es un tanto ridícula, como lo es el aviso de la niebla en exteriores.

Hay un aroma en la película que recuerda a las adaptaciones de #edgarallanpoe hechas por #rogercorman , lo que no es extraño dado que el productor es el mismo y le da un toque interesante a la película.

En resumen: una más que correcta película de casa encantada, mejor que muchas, pero no de las mejores.

This book is as creepy as the River Styx, so of course I think everyone should read it. 😁 
Truly though it has got a lot going for it besides the hair-raising quotient. Like any lasting horror story, it's not so much about the things that go bump in the night, but the feelings that bump around inside of us and others that are so frightening. The loneliness, the missed opportunities, the illusions we create to keep ourselves hopeful, to feel included; how through all of our bluster and fumbling we just want so much to achieve connection, to be seen. If you haven't read the book of seen the movie (the 1963 version, please) the plot involves three strangers meeting at Hill House at the invitation of a paranormal scholar, Dr. Montague, who is hoping these selected few will help him find evidence of psychic phenomena. The house has a dark history (but of course) and strange occurrences begin to disturb the guests, none more so than the delicate, almost desperate Eleanor, who has her own sad past. Yes, there have been hundreds of haunted house stories, but Shirley Jackson's is at the top. She knows how to create mystery and character interactions that feel so real. #shirleyjackson #thehauntingofhillhouse #bookstagram #books #booksofinstagram #bookreviews #review #read #keepreading #hillhouse #whateverwalkedtherewalkedalone #ghosts #madness #horror #mystery #knockknock

This book is still to this day, one of my favorites! I love how she writes and makes you feel all the same emotions that the characters feel. This was the perfect spooky book. I couldn’t resist but to make it into matches. 🖤 grab yours! Link in bio!

Before I Wake, Mike Flanagan’s 2016 masterpiece, is now a Netflix original. Time to get really excited for his Netflix original series remake of The Haunting of Hill House..

The last time this book was checked out of this library was in 1995. That's crazy. The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson inspired one of my favorite horror films, "The Haunting", which was later remade with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Lili Taylor. An awesome paranormal novel.

One of my favorite quotes from The Haunting of Hill House. “Once they have trapped you into being like everyone else you will never see your cup of stars again.”

It’s our 100th post 🎊🎊 And we thought we’d share the books, recommended to us on bookstagram by some of the amazing people we have met here!!!
We have read most of them and will be devouring the other ones soon enough. Have you read any of these books?
.
We’d like to tell you a little about ourselves (because why not🤷🏻‍♀️). We’ve been friends for 13 years and went to the same school, later the same university and stayed in touch because of our love for books. Three months ago we decided to share that love with like minded people and frenchflaps_and_deckleedges was born over a cup of coffee on an afternoon. To everyone who has complimented the name, the story behind it is simple, well... all the other names were taken🤷🏻‍♀️ and we do really love French Flaps and Deckle edges😂
.
We’d like to thank everyone who has been with us since then and our new followers.

Picked up this book at 2nd and Charles today. I read it nearly a 2 decades ago and never forgot how incredible it was. Looking forward to reading it again.

Sadly my Nan passed away on New Years day, and I'm going home next week for her funeral. So as you can imagine my year had gotten off to a pretty bad start. So if I'm not around much next week, that's the reason why. .

“No Human eye can isolate the unhappy coincidence of line and place which suggests evil in the face of a house, and yet somehow a maniac juxtaposition, a badly turned angle, some chance meeting of roof and sky, turned Hill House into a place of despair, more frightening because the face of Hill House seemed awake, with a watchfulness from the blank windows and a touch of glee in the eyebrow of a cornice.” •
I was really looking forward to this book after having read We Have Always Lived In The Castle. It started out great in the first two chapters with the eerie feeling created by the descriptions of Hill House. But after that it just got confusing for me, especially the interpersonal relations. I understand what the haunting quality of Hill House is supposed to be but I think it could’ve been executed more clearly 🤭 Only 3/5 ✨

Revisiting a favourite in the last days of my holidays. #hillhouse #shirleyjackson #thehauntingofhillhouse #book #feetup
Ta-da! My top reads for 2017. There are 10 in total with The Lost Words on the second photo. And the common theme...? Magic!
🌟
N.K.Jemisin took top spot with all 3 titles in the Broken Earth trilogy followed by Shirley Jackson with 2 books. Murakami sits nicely between these under the category of weird. There are several children's entries - The Book of Dust, The Lost Words and slipping in just before the clock struck 12 - Nevermoor. Last but not least Strange the Dreamer lies in the hinterland between adult & YA - possibly my favourite of all.
🌟
If you've been checking out my stories you'll know that Al and I have been busily upcycling our dresser over the new year. This post features the upper section. We'll unveil the full piece at the weekend ☺

Dag 2. Tema: “Chilling” ❄️👻 Shirley Jacksons “The Haunting of Hill House” är en av mina skräckfavoriter. Står högt på min TBR-lista eftersom det var superlänge sen jag läste den, och typ det enda jag minns är att den var jättebra, läskig och annorlunda. 🏠🖤 #theardentbiblioreads #bookstagram #boktips #shirleyjackson #thehauntingofhillhouse
Yesssss, this coming soon! 👍🏻👏🏻❤️#netflix #thehauntingofhillhouse #ilovethisstuff #iwantthebooktoo #shirleyjackson #hillhouse #comingsoon‼️

#2017wrapup
-
I managed 75 books this past year and read a bunch of stuff I would never have given a chance to in the past and a lot of that is down to the book community here on Instagram, my time working with some amazing book lovers at @piccadillywaterstones and  not being afraid to try something new. So whilst there’s a lot of fiction on this list, there’s also memoir, poetry and manga. Here’s to a 2018 filled with good books and literary surprises!
•
The Road /
This was a reread, though years had past since I last picked it up, and I was blown away by McCarthy’s use of language and the stark beauty of this post-apocalyptic tale.
•
The Line of Beauty /
This was my first read of 2017 and my first encounter with Hollinghurst and though I went on to read 2 more of his later in the year (I have @martinwallace79 to thank for that) this tale of burgeoning love and politics in London was a true highlight.
•
Flesh & Blood /
This domestic saga charts three generations of a Greek American family against the backdrop of the latter part of the 20th century. Poignant, human and real.
•
Insomniac City /
I read this non-fiction offering of love and life in New York in a rapture. Beyond beautiful, I loved this book (thanks go to @tomcpat88 for the rec and the proof).
•
My Brother’s Husband /
This manga was one of the most life-affirming reads I read this year. Positive, uplifting and stuffed with beautiful artwork.
•
A Fine Balance /
If you’re in need of a timelessly great book with a story that will pick you up and sweep you away then look no further (this came to me with the @cnrfsk stamp of approval).
•
Night Sky with Exit Wounds /
Vuong’s debut collection is filled with heartache, wisdom and clarity. Like all great poetry I know I’ll return to it tirelessly.
•
Bliss /
I read a few short story collections in 2017 but Mansfield remains the ultimate master of the form.
•
The Haunting of Hill House /
I read this slim little tale of horror right near the start of the year and it’s stuck with me ever since. It’s spooky, understatedly so, and human.

Not a list of 'best books' or 'must-reads', since it always depends on what you happened to read and when. So much relies on what you seek. And sometimes there's a little alchemy involved in the books you found (or found you) at a particular moment. But in 2017, these 10 books have taken longer to percolate than most; I still carry them all inside.

Published in 1959, this book could give any of today’s thrillers a run for their money. #thehauntingofhillhouse #authorsofinstagram #amreading #bookworm #hauntedbookshelf
2017. If I were to name an overarching theme it was probably rebirth, reincarnation and chaos. Next will be the theme of duality. So I hope to hear some great suggestions. Also yes I forgot to include Cannery Row in the picture. But I hope all the Steinbeck fans don't have my balls for it. Happy 2018

Happy Christmas/New Year/Birthday/Thursday to me 📚
I've been so missing in action this week due to Christmas and the fact that I've been limiting my IG time (I know, shock horror!) to concentrate on writing. Just so you all know that I'm not avoiding you/or been abducted by aliens 😂 Tomorrow should see me finishing the first draft of Gabe 3 *cue fanfare of trumpets* 
In other news, this little beauty came to live with me over Christmas 😍 I've been coveting this edition for months and it's even more beautiful in the flesh. It's all dark and shiny and the pages are edged in black. A total head over heels love affair!

Halp! Which book do you think I should read next? I've only enjoyed 1 out of my last 5 reads, so I'm hoping to find something I like with my next one. I'm reading a graphic novel now, but this won't take me too long. .

#Reading #yearinreview #2017: a hundred-year old tragedy, a haunted house, and a lost legacy are the backbones of this sneaky, creepy little novel,#TheWidowsHouse by #CarolGoodman. Clare and Jess, husband and wife and both writers whose careers are flagging, take a post as caretakers at Riven House, a sprawling #HudsonValley estate. It’s at Riven House that they hear the stories - of two children, one who died and one who lived, and of their mothers, one who killed herself and the other who killed her husband, the father of both children. As Clare begins to find new inspiration in these stories, however, she also begins to uncover the secrets that tie her own story to Riven House’s - and begins too to realize that someone, or something, WANTS her to uncover those secrets. 
Through subtle scares, hints of unreliability, interesting world-building (the Hudson Valley is only KIND of like what she depicts, guys), and tight plotting which slowly reveals a bigger picture, Goodman elevates a novel which ultimately hinges on a suspense trope as old as a certain 1944 film (I’ll say no more, for spoilers sake). It’s good, moody writing throughout, and made all the better by Goodman’s affection and clear research of the haunted house genre - #TheHauntingofHillHouse, #Rebecca, and #TheTurnOfTheScrew all get clear shoutouts and callbacks. Ultimately I didn’t love this book, but I definitely loved reading it and I hope you will too. #books #book #bookstagram #horror #suspense #ghoststories #horrorfiction

Such a fan of Shirley Jackson. Just started this little (Christmas?) gem of a book.
‘Tis the Season - any season - for a Jackson!

I tried to read something classic Christmasy but I wasn’t in the mood. I wanted something haunty instead.
