I stumbled across...

... a thread on reddit where someone was asking for creepy haunted house books and really disturbing scary books. The kind that have you checking the dark corners. I actually don't think I have read any of them, if I have then I have read so many since then that I have forgotten reading them. I know some of my horror friends have read a few, if not most of them so I thought I would ask for opinions/suggestions.


The suggestions were:


House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski


We Have Always Lived in a Castle by Shirley Jackson


The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson


The Elementals by Michael McDowell


The House Next Door by Ann Siddons


Wild Fell by Miachael Rowe


Hells House by Richard Matheson


The Turn of the Screw by Henry James


The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters


Rebecca by Daphne Maurier


This House is Haunted by John Boyne


Rooms by Lauren Oliver


John Dies at the End by David Wong


House on the Borderland by William Hodgson


Lunar Park by Brett Eliis


The Croning by Laird Barron


Recommended for the list by Char - Sweetheart, Sweetheart by Bernard Taylor. IT's sort of a ghost/haunted house combo and it's beautifully written. (Incidentally, it has a foreword by Michael Rowe, author of Wild Fell, another book on this list.)
