  1. The Haunting of Hill House is a popular one at the moment but I'm too much of a coward to even try!

    1. I can understand that. I thought it was very creepy.

  2. I can't wait to see what you all make of Rebecca.
    Hill House - I liked it but didn't love it but I think I'm in the minority on that one. It was good in terms of the characters, deep, but I felt it was a little light on the scary factor.

  4. I wondered how the new Halloween was! I am glad to hear it was good. I want to see it!

    And Milk and Honey has been on my radar. I really want to read more poetry. I will have to give that one a try! :)

  9. I really enjoyed Hill House as well. It was so atmospheric and for the most part, the actors were dead on. I loved Theo and thought the casting was awesome!

  12. I am 2 episodes away from finishing Hill House but it is killing me emotionally. It is so heavy but so very good.

    1. I know what you mean. The last episode is really, really tough. You should wait a bit. :'(

  13. Enjoy your Rebecca read along - it always enriches a book I think when you are able to discuss it with others.

  14. I have watched the Haunting of Hill House and I'm now about 80% done with a re-read of the book. I have a blog post planned to compare and contrast the two versions. My weekly updates

  15. Made me nostalgic when I saw Rebecca. I think I should go for a 're read of all her books.

  16. I read Rebecca a few years ago and loved it. I haven't been watching much TV lately so I still need to check out The Haunting of Hill House. I feel like the last person to see it!

  17. I read much more scifi and fantasy and mystery than horror. I don't mind dark which I get in some suspense / thriller / mystery books. Anne - Books of My Heart

    1. I'm a fan of those genres as well, but I do tend to read more horror. :)
