The “Haunted” Recap

If you missed Day 1 of our #LadiesofHorrorFiction Instagram challenge recaps, be sure to check it out. We kicked off the challenge with the “Lady Stack” prompt. There are several gorgeous stacks of lady books to be seen.

Day 2 of our #LadiesofHorrorFiction challenge was the “Haunted” prompt. We had a lot of fantastic entries, and the discussions among the participants of the challenge picked up!

This day also served as a good reminder that we have authors in our community who no longer identify as female. The entire Ladies of Horror Fiction team is dedicated to not only promoting authors who identify as female, but also protecting anyone who does not identify as a lady of horror. Please reach out to us at any time if you have any questions or concerns.

It was no surprise on the day of our haunted prompt Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House popped up everywhere! We could have filled this recap with just photos of The Haunting of Hill House, and we still would have had way too many to post. So, we snagged just one (hard choice) to make room for everyone else!

Myclutterbookshelf posted How to Hang a Witch by Adriana Mather – a young adult book with a haunted main character who has ties to the Salem Witch Trials.

QOTD: Does your bookstagram aesthetic match your personal aesthetic? Mine typically doesn't. I post very bright photos with white backgrounds and nice pretty flowers usually, and that is not my real life aesthetic AT ALL. In reality, I wear black and grey all the time, have a shelf filled with tarot cards and bones and crystals, and pretty much want to spend my life as the local village witch. . . . This photo is much more matched to my personal style, and I really like it! Once fall comes, I'll be at my full power and it'll show in my photos. I have so many fall/witchy items to use and I'm going to start incorporating them now because summer is taking too damn long to end. 😂 . . . #LadiesOfHorrorFiction – Haunted #BookReadHappyHour – Underrated Thursday #FangirlingInAugust – Book and Candle #OfTheBookAug18 – Best Character Introductions (The main character of this book immediate brings up her affinity for sarcasm and I was like yas girl, same) #WildAdventuresAugust – Favorite Book Settings (This book is set in Salem!!

The House Next Door by Anne Rivers Siddons was another popular “haunted” choice and a popular selection through the course of the challenge.

Heylittlethrifter shared an awesome photo of Agatha Christie’s By the Pricking of My Thumbs.

Our final selection of favorites is a collection from Shirley Jackson (The Lottery and Other Stories).

Be sure to let us know if you have read or plan on reading any of the “haunted” books we featured today! Next week we will be featuring the prompt “jewelry“.
