We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson

Image1:

Merricat Blackwood lives on the family estate with her sister Constance and her Uncle Julian. Not long ago there were seven Blackwoods—until a fatal dose of arsenic found its way into the sugar bowl one terrible night. Acquitted of the murders, Constance has returned home, where Merricat protects her from the curiosity and hostility of the villagers. Their days pass in happy isolation until cousin Charles appears. Only Merricat can see the danger, and she must act swiftly to keep Constance from his grasp.

Original 1962.

    Man, there’s something about book covers from the 60s and 70s that just absolutely nails the creepy, unsettling feeling that lurks within the book. This was a great choice! The original cover, especially, gives me a feeling of utmost dread. Love it!

    I like the black and white cover! Definitely gives off creepy vibes. I’m not really one to reach for spooky reads, but one I read and loved this year is The Diviners by Libba Bray.
