50/50 Friday - Scary Book & Movie You Want to Read/Watch

50/50 Friday is hosted here on this blog and over at Blue Eye Books.

What is 50/50 Friday?
Everyone has a favorite and then we also have something we dislike. Like a coin, there are two sides to every question. Example: best sequel you've read/worst sequel you've read. So that's what 50/50 Friday is all about. We will have a new topic every Friday. If you have have ideas for this meme don't be scared to let us know!

Topic for the Week
Scary Book & Movie You Want to Read/Watch

Netflix recently came out with this series called The Haunting of Hill House and it's what I wanted to watch for Halloween. When I started to fill out this post with it on my list but I did recently watch it all and IT'S AMAZING! 

It's everything I love and want from the horror genre! It's so perfectly creepy and has an amazing story! 

I plan to do a whole review on it very very soon. It might already be up, I don't know. We'll see. Anyway, if you've not seen it. Go watch it, it's fantastic! 

Now as for the book I want to read....

Is The Haunting of Hill House. I want to see the book that inspired this amazing TV show. I know it's a lot different from the TV show but I love gothic horror and hauntings. So yes! I can't wait for the library to send me a copy!

Topic for Next Week
Best/Worst Read in October

  2. I listened to the unabridged audio version of The Haunting of Hill House in October 2016. It was good. Here's a link to my review: https://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2016/10/the-haunting-of-hill-house-by-shirley.html

    I also want to watch the series for The Haunting of Hill House as well.

    I find it interesting that there are so many series out based on books (13 Reasons Why, Outlander, Alias Grace, etc. to name a few).

    1. I now have to read your review!

      I hope you get to watch it soon! It really is freaking amazing! I love it. I already rewatched it, I thought it was that good.

      There are so many! Though that makes me so freaking happy.... as long as they're done right of course, I love seeing the series I love coming to life.

      I'm with you in that as long as the series is well done, I'm happy.

    4. Let me know what you think when you finally get the chance to watch it!

  3. Great minds think alike today. :-) This was my choice too. Although I haven't yet seen the series.

    1. I hope you get to see it soon! It's freaking amazing!

  4. I really want to watch The Haunting of Hill House! Normally I'm not that much of a scary movie type person but all the previews make it look so good!
