We Have Always Lived in the Castle - Shirley Jackson I loved this book. I don't believe I've ever read anything like it. It managed to be a creepy horror without the horror. The story and characters were wonderful. There really is a certain quality to older books you just to see too often these days. I can't explain what it is exactly, but this novel definitely had it. I highly recommend this quick little read for a rainy afternoon. This was the first book I've read by Shirley Jackson, but it won't be the last
