I bought this collection of Victorian Ghost Stories last summer for 50 cents (I think) when I was at a charity shop/thrift store in Virginia with @tarajmw . Before today, I hadn’t opened the book or read any of it and just 5 minutes ago as I was prepping to take this photo, a postcard fell out of it (see the second picture). Despite feeling bad for the person who lost/misplaced/forgot them, I love finding lost/misplaced/forgotten objects in books, even if they’re mine! It always makes me wonder about the person who had the book before me and why they gave it away. Anyway, this book is going on my October TBR pile to get me in the Halloween spirit when it comes around! ~ ~ ~ Have you found anything in one of your books that you forgot/didn’t know was there? Do you have any scary/spooky/unsettling books at the ready for October? ~ ~ ~ #bookstagram #victorianghoststories #ghoststories #fiction #bibliophile #bookreview #halloween #tbr #toberead

It’s day 28 of the #totally90sbookchallenge and it’s Are You Afraid Of The Dark?: scary stories. First of all, I just want to say Are You Afraid Of The Dark? was my favorite show of all time growing up. This show could be equally funny and terrifying, and I loved it. I really need to find this on DVD. But any, enough of that, onto the post. “Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society, I call this story...” I’m a sucker for vintage ghost stories, especially ones from the Victorian era, so every time I see a good ghost story book in the store, I have to buy it. #reading #bookworm #bibliophile #bookstagram #brosofbookstagram #augustbookchallenge #bookchallenge #ghoststories #robertwestall #roalddahl #roalddahlsbookofghoststories #victorianghoststories #theoxfordbookofenglishghoststories

Packing for my Yellowstone and Grand Tetons trip right now. I’m so excited to explore these parks and their surrounding towns. I’m taking these ghost story compilations to read out loud at night with my family. I love a good ghost story! Who else likes to tell/read ghost stories with friends or family?• • •The Roald Dahl selections were chosen by him and originally published in 1983. I’ve had the Oxford Anthology since I was a teenager.

“I ain’t afraid of no ghost!” It’s day 9 of the #spookyaprilbooks challenge, and it’s The Conjuring: ghosts. I love a good ghost story, and especially the classics. Nobody told ghost stories quite like the Victorians, and they still set the standard today. #reading #bookworm #bibliophile #bookstagram #brosofbookstagram #marchbookchallenge #bookchallenge #classichorrortales #ghoststories #victorianghoststories #theoxfordbookofenglishghoststories #voodootales #henrywhitehead #masterpiecesofterrorandthesupernatural #roalddahlsbookofghoststories #collectedghoststoriesofmrjames #mrjames

Todle je nejděsivější obrázek mého dětství. Vysoká žena. Ilustrace v knize Tajemné příběhy. Tu knihu jsem měla děsně ráda a zároveň se ji bála číst. Paradoxem je, že jsem ty příběhy zapomněla. A až dnes jsem si jako první osvěžila povídku Vysoká žena. A nezklamala 😨. Ale co jsem chtěla říct: tu knihu jsem jednou vzala na stanování a někdo mi ji omylem sbalil. Už jsem ji nenašla. A časem jsem zapomněla název, byť je tak jednoduchý. Až teď, pomalu po dvaceti letech, ji zase mám. Občas jsem si na ni vzpomněla, ale až před pár dny mě osvítilo a vybavila jsem si název. A co víc, našla ji obratem v antikvariátu v Kotevní. Prostě happy end. Už ji nedám a těším se, jak si osvěžím strašidelné povídky, u kterých jsem se jako malá bála. A navíc mám pocit, že mi tu knížku tehdá dala moje babička, velká milovnice knih ❤. /ENG: This is the most scary picture in a book of my childhood. #kniznitip #doporucuju #pravectu #kniha #book #bookstagram #instabook #booklover #scarytales #tajemnepribehy #victorianghoststories #vysokazena #tallwoman #illustration #ilustrace #scarybook #knihamehodetstvi #lostandfound #horrorstories #antikvariat

Spooky reading for Halloween: "The Haunted Room" by George Humphery (1900), "Dracula" by Bram Stoker (1897; 1904), "The Shadow On The Blind" by Mrs Alec Baldwin (1895), "Haunted Houses Of London" by Elliott O'Donnell (1909), "Uncanny Tales" by Mrs Molesworth (1896), "The Beetle" by Richard Marsh (1897; 1912), "A Warning To The Curious" by M.R. James (1925), "Stoneground Ghost Tales" by E.G. Swain (1912), "Some New Ghost Stories" by John C. Woodiwiss. #ghoststories #halloween #mrjames #bramstoker #dracula #victorianghoststories

@creativesorceress

Turns out a few of my favorite books are perfect for October. Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” still scares me even though I’ve read it too many times to count. A.S. Byatt’s “Possession” is an eerie deja vu mystery about two lovers across time. Peter Straub’s lovely flapper ghost is angry in “Ghost Story” and the Victorians wrote some seriously creepy ghost stories. The horror genre is so much more than what you might think. There is no light without the dark. #reading #books #ghoststories #horror #possesion #dracula #victorianghoststories #ghoststory

@baalkeshaphim

I've decided to scrap my plan to read the Machen. For now, at least. After reading The White People, I realized that most of the other stories consisted of overly long tales of the Holy Grail and WW1. Not interested. Moving on to a person I know will deliver- Le Fanu! Green Tea is a favorite but I somehow missed Carmilla. That is the next object of my reading. #bookstagram #bibliophilia #horrorstory #sheridanlefanu #inaglassdarkly #oxfordworldsclassics #victorianghoststories #vampire #carmilla

New acquisition: "Nema & Other Stories" by Hedley Peek [1895]. Better known for his biscuits, Peek (of Peek Frean fame) authored a small number of ghost stories, several of which feature these illustrations by C.E. Brock. #victorianghoststories, #hedleypeek, #makeminealemonpuff

Now that Halloween is peeking its head around the corner, it's time to start getting into the 'spirit!' "Ghostly Tales" is full of Victorian Gothic atmosphere and is definitely getting us in the mood! at Boulder Book Store

@cityreadsnyc

"Not Exactly Ghosts" - HOW DID YOU COME ACROSS THE BOOK? Umm… I was researching Victorian ghost stories… you know, like Christmas… like those scary ghost stories in that Christmas song. So I started just reading different Victorian ghost stories around Christmas and it’s just been… kind of uh… sending me down a worm hole of all these different authors… and so, the author was just somebody that cropped up when trying to find other ghost stories. SO FAR, WHAT PERSPECTIVE HAVE YOU GAINED FROM THIS BOOK? Umm… unlike a lot of other Victorian ghost stories… not exactly ghost stories is… just that; they’re not exactly ghost stories. I mean, the tradition, you know… tends to be about haunted love stories… they tend to be romantic as well as scary. This stuff is all… well, one of these stories was about this little kid who had heard one of the neighbor kids had fallen down a well and they heard another kid screaming for help, and so it scared the kid… and he didn’t find out until years later that it wasn’t a ghost… that it was somebody he in theory could have helped but he didn’t realize because he thought it was a ghost. You know… so it’s… it’s an interesting riff on the Victorian ghost stories in that they tend not to be about ghosts. WOULD YOU RECOMMEND IT, AND IF SO, TO WHO AND WHY? I honestly don’t know if I would recommend it yet… umm… yeah, I suppose that I would but… I would say that if you were… you know… a person who is reading a bunch of Victorian ghost stories… it’s a nice change of pace because it’s clearly written by somebody who had spent a lot of time reading them and just decided what he wanted to do different with the form. I just don’t know who that person would be. #CityReadsNYC at Madison Square Park

Day 30 of my Halloween book countdown is for the Tales of Mystery & The Supernatural editions from Wordsworth Editions. They are affordable but really well made. Kind of annoying that they have started to change the covers or that there are two different cover versions. Two of mine have different covers - I will post them in a minute. Only one more Halloween book post tomorrow! 🎃👻💀 #bookishstephhalloweenbookcountdown #talesofmysteryandthesupernatural #wordswortheditions #wordsworthclassics #sheridanlefanu #inaglassdarkly #thecastleofotranto #vathek #nightmareabbey #horacewalpole #williambeckford #thomaslovepeacock #thekinginyellow #robertwchambers #victorianghoststories #edwardianghoststories #themysteryoftheyellowroom #gastonleroux #bookstagram

​[RESELL] Night Shivers by J. H. Riddell 45k English text Paperback, 449 pages Secondhand, great condition Summary: "Moving, his candle was instantly extinguished, and in the very moment of being left in the darkness he saw, standing in the doorway, a woman, resembling her who had haunted his dream overnight. He rushed with outstretched hands to seize her, but clutched only air." Night Shivers presents a treasure trove of the stories of J. H. Riddell, one of the greatest Victorian writers of ghost stories. These tales, many of which have been out of print for years, take the reader on fearful journeys into the gloomy haunts of old neglected houses, into a world of prophetic dreams, out onto the wild terrain of Ireland to encounter a frightful banshee and even down into Hell itself. In these fourteen short stories and one novella, The Uninhabited House, there is the distillation of the best and most effective of Riddell's spine-tingling supernatural fiction.​
