Welcome to October, the spookiest month of the year! We thought it would be appropriate to read something scary this month, both in honor of Halloween and for all of you joining the RIP XII Challenge. The book we settled on? Shirley Jackson's modern horror classic, The Haunting of Hill House.

Here's the summary from Goodreads:

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 looking for solid evidence of a "haunting"; Theodora, his lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers—and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.

You can probably find this book at your library or on streaming services like Hoopla.

Tasha will be hosting The Haunting of Hill House discussion over on Goodreads. Join our #12mos12rals discussion group any time this month and jump in!
